Navy beans and ham shanks
up early to get going in my home kitchen this morning, at bat for lunch was a pot of navy beans (dutch oven in the oven) with a ham shank from the pig that i bought last fall, there is something so comforting about a pot of pork and beans, shown with a bit of sour cream and some pickled jalapenos...perfection. paired it with homemade hot dog buns (i can never get the shape quite perfect) that i needed to make for a apple bratwurst that a butcher i know did for me. fresh bread and beans, and ham, and a wonderfully delicious bratwurst. on deck for dinner- cherry wood smoked beef short ribs (the ferrari of ribs), polenta, shredded brussel sprouts, whole wheat and roasted garlic bread, warm romaine heart salad, and homemade soda of some sort. been busy, but i am having company.
