Mussel & Salmon Casserole...The Last Of The Mohecans!!

Ok that's it! This posting is the last of the Mohecans! Four hundred and sixteen postings of every kind with pictures by somebody who had no idea at all what Blogging meant, is not bad. As from tomorrow I will start enjoying the holidays ....what holidays??....I am always on holiday, I am retired!! Now I don't even have to think myself to sleep every night thinking of what I am going to be cooking next day.  It was just like counting sheep!! However... in a few days you will be getting my Haxe with, beer, and sauerkraut boiled potatoes recipe. Haxe is the pig's hock in German which are presently being cured and should be ready in about a week. In another 5 gallon plastic container I have two pork boneless hams also being cured which should be ready in about 8 days.  Then there is the smoking which will take 1 day then our Holiday treats will be ready!...

Braised Pork On A Mirepoix....Delicious And Tender

Countdown number 4. Oh yes one year's blogging is slowly coming to an end. I will not forget the help of a fellow blogger who took me by the hand through the very first steps. I cannot mention her name for obvious reasons.  God bless E.M.S.!
I prepared a bit of a gigantic mirepoix using the left over button onions of yesterday, sliced carrots, and celery sticks....
