Domingo por la noche con Jefe

10 Nov

I missed the morning. Here is what I did for Sunday dinner after a Seahawks victory…

Apple Sausage Delight

6 apple Gouda sausages
Shredded cabbage
One yellow bell pepper sliced
Heat skillet with coconut oil
Add everything together after skillet is warm
While cooking add salt, garlic powder, and a touch of red table wine
Heat until hot and serve in bowl

After my first taste if it, I added crumbled blue cheese. It was the right move. Easy, healthy, and delicioso!

P.S. Pour yourself a glass if that table red!

Eat well,

Jefe

A Darn Good Breakfast…

9 Nov

I like eggs for breakfast. However, eggs can get boring if they are constantly the same. Here is a quick recipe to add some spunk to your eggs for breakfast…

– 6 eggs (feeds 2 people as long as you keep the dogs at bay). Mix in a bowl and add garlic powder, salt, lemon pepper, and mojito lime seasoning that you can find at your local Costco.

– Take about a half cup of cottage cheese and add some chopped onion

– Start heating your skillet at medium heat with coconut oil (all other stuff is bad, bad, bad).

– When hot, add egg mixture, cottage cheese with chopped onions, and a healthy dose of butter. Note that we only use Kerrigold butter that comes from grass fed cows. The other butter is not healthy. This is. I guess you can say we are butter snobs.

– Cook on medium making sure that it doesn’t burn. Don’t overlook the eggs! When just right, stop cooking and start eating!

The cottage cheese provides a terrific and rich texture to your eggs. Ample seasoning tales them from dull to tasty. All of this on a Saturday morning makes a darn good breakfast.

Domingo por la Mañana with The Food Jefe

3 Nov

Sunday morning getting ready for another day of the National Football League. The Seahawks play at 1 pm and we are heading to friends house to watch the game. Pizza is what on tap.

Last night, I tried something new with the burgers in Esposita’s absence. I threw in my regular bourbon and blue cheese, but substituted honey for the bacon. I thought the honey would add a little sweet to the savory that included garlic powder and olive oil. The burgers turned out nicely but I didn’t get as much if the honey taste as I would have liked to. Esposita didn’t taste it either. The next go around I will back off a little of the bourbon and increase the honey to get that taste in there. I like the idea of the honey and just need get it more flavorful.

This is a perfect Fall day with the leaves on a dewy ground and a chill in the air. Football weather, right?

That’s it for this Domingo. Enjoy your favorite way of celebrating a Sunday with family, friends, football, and plenty of food!

Eat well.

Jefe Solo (con perritos)

2 Nov

Okay my English speaking only pals this means I’m hanging with the dogs tonight. Esposita is off to a charity event with her parents and sisters. I’m cool chilling at home.

This means I can watch what she has no interest in (likely to be 42) and eat what she can’t eat. That’s what I’m ruminating on. I’m thinking burger with bourbon in it or maybe some angry chops. Suggestions? I will reveal all later tonight!

Eat well,

Domingo por la Mañana with The Food Jefe

27 Oct

My new Sunday feature starts today! For my English only speaking pals it says Sunday morning with The Food Jefe. Let’s go!

My perfect Sunday mornings are in full tilt. Today is an example. I’m eating my favorite desayuno ever…Esposita made me Paleo chocolate pancakes with blueberries. Had my Colombian coffee with a little hazelnut creamer and 2 alligators of chocolate syrup (see a trend?).

The ambience is hanging with Esposita and the dogs watching ESPN Sunday NFL Countdown. Raining and gray outside and Captain Jack trying to steal my pancakes. Heading to Mass soon and then on to more football. Sometimes we flip to Mass first and then desayuno but we were eating tapas into the evening last night and slept in.

What’s your perfect Sunday morning? Share it here on my blog or on my Twitter @TheFoodJefe. If you’re on Twitter and like my writing on food and other fun stuff, follow me!

That’s it for this Domingo. I’m fueled with pancakes and coffee and ready for a great day. Buenos Dias a todos!

Taking a Bite Out of The Big Apple Jefe Style #2

7 Oct

Night Update: Had a tailgating start with my pals at the Campbell Terrace outside (but covered by roof) of Grand Central Station. It was raining hard by the time I got there. Glad I packed the umbrella this time!

Tried a watermelon mojito as I am an aficionado. It was very good. Dinner that night was inside the train station in the mezzanine at a restaurant called Cipriani. The appetizer was a scrumptious Tuna Scottato that had tuna cut in medallions with fennel (one of my favorites) and balsamic vinaigrette. Dinner got even better with one of the special of the night, a pumpkin ravioli. Dessert need the feast with (what else for me) tiramisu. My friend Noah and I decided on a nightcap back at Campbell Terrace and I sipped on a Polo Match – Kentucky Ginger Bourbon, muddled cucumber, vanilla syrup, and fresh lime juice.

New York is really a happening place even on a Monday night. I’m back at the hotel watching the end of Monday Night Football and digesting to get prepped for another day in The City tomorrow.

Chao!

Eat well,

Taking a Bite of the Big Apple Jefe Style #1

7 Oct

I know I haven’t been actually blogging a lot. Sorry. I have found that I really like Twitter. The brevity and simplicity of tweeting makes it easier for me to post. I encourage you to follow me on Twitter @TheFoodJefe. You can look off to your right and see my current tweets.

Back to business. I’m in the great food city, New York, NY. I know there may be some that doubt the validity of my statement, but so be it. For me right now, it’s the king.

Just came back from a really nice lunch with a friend near Times Square. She recommended a cool place called The Long Room.

The name fits the joint. You walk in and it literally goes straight back! Nice lunch menu. I opted to keep it light as I expect to eat big tonight. I had a Tuna Yellowfin salad. The tuna was cooked to medium (aka perfect). The salad was very flavorful and left me content, yet not stuffed. It’s definitely one to keep on my list for the next time.

I am sad that I don’t think I will be able to make it to Brooklyn this trip to visit my 2 Colombian restaurants. Not enough time on this one…I will have to take a rain check. El proximo tiempo!

I have BIG APPLE plans the rest of the week. Stay tuned to hear more about the Jefe taking a big bite of the Apple. Check me out on Twitter, too. Your taste buds will be glad you did!

Eat well,

Jefe
