CUCUMBERS IN SOUR CREAM
3 or 4 cucumbers -depending on size
2 cups DILL pickle brine
1 c. sour cream or lite version
1 tsp. fresh dill weed, chopped or 1/4 tsp. dried dill weed
1 tsp. sugar
Optional: thinly sliced onion rings can be added with sour cream
Combine cucumbers and pickle brine for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain; rinse and drain again. Combine sour cream, a 1/4 cup of pickle brine, dill and sugar. Pour over cucumbers, garnish with fresh cracked pepper and serve.
RUSTIC MASHED POTATOES WITH ASIAGO AND ROASTED GARLIC
Boil your potatoes - diced and with skins on - until thoroughly cooked. Drain. With a mixed, mash your potatoes until only slightly lumpy - add butter (melted or at least very soft), and instead of milk - add ½ cream cheese and ½ sour cream, salt, beat until smooth. Add cheese and finely chopped roasted garlic (remember - a little garlic goes a long way). Place in casserole. When you make mashed potatoes with cream cheese and sour cream instead of milk - they reheat and maintain their consistency. So feel free to make the day before. :) (Saves time on holidays)

SAUTEED GREEN BEANS
Clean fresh green beans - and trim them to roughly 2 inches in length (save everything else for use in other recipes - I use mine in stews).
Blanch. In a medium skillet - heat EVOO - MAKE SURE IT IS HOT BEFORE YOU START - add diced onions. Saute. When onions are beginning to go translucent - add minced garlic and green beans. Saute. When nearly done - if you like, add sliced mushrooms.
Liberally coat meat with Montreal Steak Seasoning. Cover. Let sit in refrigerator 24-36 hours. Heat 1/4 inch of high quality high temp oil. OIL MUST BE HOT. Braise the meat on all sides to seal in juices. Place into roasting dish. Generally I cover the bottom of my roasting dish with raw sliced onion and enough liquid to cover the onions - placing the meat on top. Coat the top of the boil again with Montreal Steak seasoning to give it a nice crusting. :) Cook at 350 until meat reaches desired doneness. (140 degrees for Medium rare). Remove from oven and let the meat rest for 10-15 minutes to allow the juices to set. Slice.
SEASONED ONION GRAVY
using the drippings from the roasting pan - make sure you get all the lovely seasonings that will be left behind by the roast - make a simple onion gravy. Bring drippings to a boil, stir in a rue of cornstarch and water, simmer until thickened.
I’m out of rock salt so the ice cream will have to come another day.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
