Dinner pic

Usually don't bother, but...

...This was pretty good.

As you may be able to tell, this was when I went back for seconds.

"Tomato Kielbasa Shortcakes."  Made with elk meat kielbasa. Basically, you make pico de gallo and add the sliced sausage to it, and put it over the shortcake; recipe called for dressing with sour cream, we added guacamole as well.

The shortcakes are 2 parts AP flour to 1 part cornmeal, with baking powder, baking soda, sour cream for dairy and a touch of sugar. Tasted like corn bread with more body to it, and a slightly crunchy exterior.

Pretty good stuff, will probably avoid telling any babushkas about this use of kielbasa next I'm back in Detroit, though...

Broccoli slaw as a side. Cheated on that, bag of broccoli slaw and jar of cole slaw dressing from the grocery store, threw in a handful each of craisins and sunflower seed kernels.

As an aside, jalapeƱos seem to be running huge these days. Made a triple batch of guacamole for the Super Bowl Sunday potluck and only needed a single pepper, the average jalapeƱo these days would have been regarded as an extra large one just a few years ago.

Wow - that looks awesome. I just finished a stack of pancakes and I'm still drooling.

Looks yummy! I think we may be able to get elk-meat kielbasa up here. Thanks for the recipe!
