    Think I may try lots of different, One-Pot meals this Winter. Kicking off this Sunday Lunch with a French-Style Pork Pot Roast.

    How about some cassoulet?

    It's a large, bubbling vat of beans and meat, covered in a crust so dark that it was almost black. Rich, meaty, and overwhelmingly simple, the main flavor was just that of the cured meat, a good stock, and beans.

    I've had it while in Toulouse a few times. The version there had duck in it.

    Oyster stew is associated with Christmas in the US but also with winter... I grew up on this stuff during US midwest winters.

    Irish cooks could find no dried ling in America, but they did find plenty of oysters. And, as it happens, oysters taste pretty similar to dried ling: they’re salty, briny and can be quite chewy. The ling stew recipe was quickly adapted for oysters. And the cook in charge of the dinner didn’t even have to live near the ocean, either. Oysters were so popular throughout the country that canned, pickled and yes, even dried oysters had made their way across the continent en masse by the 1860s. Perhaps this year it’s time to revisit the oyster stew, and see what made this simple, satisfying dish so popular for so many Irish-American families.

    Today's One Pot meal was a Porterhouse Roast, with veggies cooked in the pan juice.
    Was very enjoyable, for my husband and I.

    Up early, as I'm working late tonight.
    Up preparing dough for bread, to eat with tonight's dinner. I'll be making a Rosemary and Olive loaf.
    To go with a slow cooked French style Farmhouse Chicken Soup.

    Going to try something that was big down here in the 70's & 80's; Carpetbag Steak. A process that involves combining steak and oysters.

    American Democrats would enjoy this, with their past history of being Carpet baggers; shhh.

    You should read a Civil War Reconstruction history book. The Carpetbaggers were Republicans. The Democrats were Scalawags.

    I've decided to cook for our lunch today: Jackaroo Stew for today's Sunday Lunch, with Sour Cream, and Chive Dumplings. Off to supermarket in a few hours, when they open, to get supplies.

    The Jackaroo Stew was delightful, as well tender.
    I'll make that again, for sure.

    Either for lunch or a one-man sidedish: Harissa Vegetable and Egg Tray Bake. If for lunch serviced with a salad of mixed leaves, shaved Fennel, Kalamata Olives, and Balsamic Vinegar.

    Off to get some supplies to make some Chicken Soup, in my slow cooker. During the week, I may also make some Chicken Catchatori Stoup. Soup make a great entree during Winter.

    I'm feeling like slow cooked Lamb Shanks. Sadly my American husband won't eat lamb; along with many other American's?

    So if I do cook lamb, it's all mine.
    Yummy Rack of Lamb, with homemade Mint Sauce.

    I'll be off to the store soon to buy supplies to bake a Shepherds Pie.
    Haven't made or eaten shepherd's pie this year, and it's a meal my husband also enjoys.
    I just wish I could get him to also eat Lamb. He just doesn't know what his missing out on. Not sure why so many Americans turn their nose up at Lamb?
