Big bellies on Earth’s new rotation

Happy new year everyone! We had a great time with my JBQ this 3-day weekend. We did absolutely nothing and we went pretty much nowhere. But my JBQ had time to relax and “live a little”, and this was everything I could hope for.

Italian-style barbecue meatloaf

We ate lots though. A lot of delicacies and some exotic food too. On Saturday night my JBQ made waffles for us, for Sunday lunch we tested our brand new toaster so we prepared some hot ham/mushroom toasts, while on Sunday dinner we had caviar, smoked salmon, coppa, prosciutto & buendnerfleisch dry meats while the main dish was crab with mayo. I also managed to prepare a pretty successful chocolate mousse as a dessert. For Monday lunch I prepared some Italian-style meat loaf with barbecue sauce on top, pictured above. Sure, it looks a bit like dog crap but it’s delicious (let me know by email if you want the recipe). I am going right now to prepare some cherry clafoutis for our dessert after dinner. I absolutely love cooking for my JBQ.

This is a wonderful recipe that everyone will enjoy.

Smoked Buffalo Cheese Log

1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup Hickory Smoked Shredded Buffalo Jerky

Put cream cheese, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion salt, Worcestershire sauce, grated cheese, and 1/2 cup jerky in bowl. Blend well. Take 12 in of wax paper and pour 1/4 cup of jerky onto the wax paper. Take 1/2 of the cheese mixture and create a log of cheese by rolling it over the jerky. Completely cover the log with jerky, roll it up in the wax paper, and place it into the refrigerator overnight. Makes 2 logs.

When ready, cut log into disks and serve with crackers.
