A new cable television show is coming this fall, Bane Essentials. Hosted by Michael Bane, author, producer, television host, outdoorsman, competitor and shooter. Each week Michael Bane will cover the essentials in food, wine, movie reviews, shooting sports, firearms and more.
Whether it is rack-of-lamb from a four star restaurant or cock-pot white fish, Bane Essentials covers it all, from re-loading big bore ammunition to selecting that perfect compensator, to discussions of why the Second Amendment does matter. Watch for this exciting new show this fall on a cable network near you...LOL! That'd be a fun show to do. Tonight I tinkered together a recipe for all the leftover frozen white fish I had in the freezer. Using the clay cazuela, I spread about a teaspoon of really good olive oil on the bottom of the cazuela. Then I added a large can of fire-roasted crushed tomatoes, Anaheim peppers sliced very thin, sliced portobello mushrooms, half a jar of drained capers and about 2 tablespoons of chopped garlic. Cover with foil, place in a cool oven and set the temp at 350...cook for 30 minutes.
In the meantime, rub the fish with a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper and Spanish smoked paprika. Wipe off the excess. Take the cazuela out of the oven after 30 minutes and add the fish...cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, depending on the fish. Salt and pepper to taste. BTW, the tomato sauce would be drop dead over pasta! Maybe add some grated Romano.
I served it with a green salad and classic Maria's heart of gold margaritas (Corazon Reposada tequila, Cointreau orange liquer and fresh-squeezed lemon juice).
Sorry, no pictures!
So now that I've done food, a quickie rant...
Today Alf the Wonder Beagle was attacked for the the 3rd time in 6 months, this time a huge German Shepherd — OFF LEASH, OF COURSE — with a muzzle on. It tried to knock down Alf, and you could hear it's jaws snapping as it tried to claw off the muzzle and bite my leg. I once saw a malamute claw off a muzzle.
I AM FRIGGIN' FED UP WITH THESE JACKASSES!
Starting tomorrow, the Standard Dog-Walking Gun is a Taurus Judge loaded with loaded with 3 Winchester PDX-1s and 2 .45 Colt Corbon DPXs.
