That looks delicious!  Baked onions. . . never heard of that before.  I am too late to take a picture unfortunately, but we had Granny?s fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, and cornbread muffins. We went trout fishing after supper, but did not catch any before it started to rain. Well, my sister did catch one little baby, but she threw him back.

Take an onion and peel it. Cut it like a blooming onion, 6-8-10 slices, but still connected at the base. Put a heaping tablespoon of butter on on and liberal amounts of Tony?s on it. Wrap it in foil and grill or bake until the foil packet is squishy. Mmmmmmm. Mmmmmmm. Mmmmmmm.

What?s this all day breakfast you speak of?
There is a gas station in Boiling Springs, NC that has sausage gravy pizza in the mornings. To die for! Well, maybe I was a bit dramatic, but it?s really good.

What type of waters are you in. We used to go up to Nantahala and fish the wild trout. My brother and I would go back there for a week long trips, canoed across the lake, stash the canoe in the bushes and backpack our way up the streams. Went 18 miles deep and 18 miles out one time eating nothing but fresh fish.  Many good trips out there.
There is an old cemetery back in the hills there with many illegible or unmarked stones. I do mean stones, rocks pulled from the ground. I remember one that is just engraved, here lies a black man. No telling the age of them.

Nantahala is a beautiful area.  We stayed there for sort of a summer vacation a few years ago, and it was a great time.  We fish regularly in the Tuckaseegee, which is really close to our house.  It's hatchery supported waters mostly, although we recently started trying the wild waters farther upstream.  My little sister and I had better luck the other night.  We found a little pool where a bunch of trout were congregated and pulled out 3 rainbows from that one spot.  We lost the last one though because our net broke and he got away!  He was THIS BIG!!  No, just kidding, he was kind of little actually.  :cheesy:

Oh, that's so deep.  Incredible.  My family hiked up to one of those cemeteries once, only one stone was readable.  It said, "Mrs. Polly Mathis" and the date was in the 1860s, I believe.  I'll see if I can dredge up the picture I have of it.  I love old cemeteries and thinking about the lives of the people who are buried there.

The biggest I ever lost in wild water was a gooooood fish. There was a series of falls. I climbed up and was hanging from the edge in the waterfall, casting into a pool that was fed by the next fall. I hooked a goooood one for a wild stream. Probably 14-16?. Only my fly rod and eyes were above the rim of the pool. Needless to say that?s not a fighting position, one handed and ten feet off the ground, but it was a good approach, or at least a fun one.

That's a way better fish story than mine.  :cool:  My father has been trying out fly fishing recently.  The rest of us are just bait chuckers.  He's having some trouble getting the hang of it.  We sold some goats to a guy who fly fishes, and he offered to help Dad out and to show us a good spot he found near where we live, since he doesn't get out this way that often.

I?m intrigued by the salad. I can?t quite make it out from the picture, but it kinda reminds me of a creamed cabbage dish mom used to make. Hers didn?t have the bacon, but had melted cream cheese covering every bite.

Ooh, that sounds good.  No, this is just a quickie salad my mom likes to throw together sometimes.  Iceberg, bacon, and Russian dressing.  Simple and delicious.

I'd call them homemade, but not from scratch.  My mom made the breading batter herself, but a box mix is an ingredient, and she bought the hot dogs of course, but she breaded and fried the corn dogs herself.

I've done it with breakfast sandwiches, but I just don't know about it with a burger.  Mom thinks it sounds good though, so maybe we'll give it a try next time we have burgers.

No, but that is a great idea!

Your girls did a great job!  I bet those will taste so good!  Our blackberries aren't quite there yet, but the black raspberries are.  I was picking around at them in the garden the other day.  Blueberries are getting close too.  We have a pick your own blueberry farm basically right next door to us, so we'll be getting our fill of those pretty soon. 

Mom was late getting home from running around today, so she had to scrap our original dinner plans.  We're having Pillsbury dough pizza instead, and she doesn't want me to post a picture of it because it's not her best work.  :cheesy:

It's true, and it's much better than frozen in basically the same amount of time.  I think we're doing leftovers tonight since it's Sunday and Mom doesn't want to cook.

Let me see what I can do to find it. I do remember two of the steps.
1) eat more berries than go in the basket.
2) once you coat the berries in sugar, eat more berries than go in the pie.

This is the one I pulled for that pie. It was very good. I didn?t read the article. I just scrolled down and got to the ingredients. Probably did a few things wrong. Made a slurry out of white sugar and buttermilk and painted it on the top and added a little cinnamon.

Eh, not really. It is not that much egg and it?s not only egg, there are other ingredients in the binder too, although I am not sure exactly what at the moment. I can ask my mom about it more tomorrow. She is in bed already.  :smile:

Here's the recipe if you all want to try it.  This is a hand-me-down recipe that Mom has on a handwritten card, so if you've got questions or clarifications on the wording I can ask her about it. 

Impossible Chicken and Broccoli Pie

Ingredients
10 oz. frozen chopped broccoli, thawed but not cooked
3 cups shredded cheddar, divided
1 1/2 cups cooked chopped chicken
2/3 cup chopped onion
1 1/3 cups milk
3 eggs
3/4 cup Bisquick
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Blot broccoli well with paper towels.  Excess liquid from broccoli will make pie runny.  Grease 10 in. pie plate.  Mix broccoli, 2 cups cheese, chicken, and onion in pie plate.  In a blender mix milk, eggs, Bisquick, salt, and pepper until smooth, about 15 seconds.  Pour liquid mixture slowly over ingredients in pie plate.  Bake 40-50 min. or until knife in center comes out clean.  Top with rest of cheese and put back into oven until cheese is just melted.  Let cool a bit before slicing so pie holds together better. 

Note: Mom lays a piece of foil on the top of the pie partway through baking if it seems to be getting too dark on the top to prevent it from getting overly browned and crunchy.

Thanks.  I have a lot of eggs sitting around.

here is my custard recipe.  It's from my GGrandmothers old recipe book.   We cracked up every time we pulled it out because she was such a propper teetotaler.

preheat oven to 300

12 eggs
4 cups of milk
big pinch of salt
cinnamon to taste (I use about 2 tsp and you can add ginger and or nutmeg)
vanilla to taste  (about one healthy tsp)
1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar

beat the hell out of it  :grin:

pour into a glass bowl and set the bowl in a dish of water.  cook until just firm in the center.  Cool in water on the countertop.  Cover and chill in an icebox. 

I make mine in individual serving bowls and use a glass sheet cake pan for the water they sit in.  Good way to use some of those extra eggs at this time of the year!

Ha!  That's a riot!  :cheesy:  My mom doesn't make a lot of custard or puddings because it's never something she really liked herself, but my Dad does, so maybe we can convince her to give it a try. 

All day breakfast again for us.  We do breakfast for dinner about once a week.  Tonight it's sausage gravy over homemade biscuits, Sofitel eggs, and Fresh Summer Fruit Salad. 
[ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

So Sofitel eggs requires some explaining.  My father, my sister, and I went to see a Washington Capitals playoff game in DC in 2018, the year they won the Stanley Cup.  It was an amazing experience all around, and in DC we stayed at a hotel called The Sofitel.  They had THE BEST scrambled eggs we had ever had in our lives, and when we got home we demanded Mom figure out how to make them.  She did some research and found online a trick that many hotels use to make their scrambled eggs: heavy cream instead of milk and a little bit of baking powder.  She gave it a try and they were just like we remembered.  We don't ever have normal scrambled eggs anymore, because they are so so good.

Might be more burgers, WITH EGG, for the 4th.

We have chickens, which means we have extra eggs. (If you watched the rifle sling video, you heard the rooster crowing relentlessly). It?s been a while since I made up a batch of lemon curd. I might try Kathy?s ?s custard. My wife does like a custard pie.

We're having burgers WITHOUT EGG for the 4th.  :cheesy:  We tried to do burgers on the fire pit for like 3 years in a row on July 4th and it always rained, so we gave up last year and grilled on the porch.  Good thing we did, because it rained, and it might rain again this year.  My dad has been harping on custard ever since we mentioned it, so Mom might give that a try too.   

Our supper tonight was based on the fact that my sister as been experimenting with making stuff out of goats milk.
Homemade pizza with our first ever homemade mozzarella!

We also made ice cream and caramel sauce, both from goats milk.  The caramel sauce is good, but the ice cream didn't exactly set up right.  We'll have to try a different recipe next time.

We're having burgers WITHOUT EGG for the 4th.  :cheesy:  We tried to do burgers on the fire pit for like 3 years in a row on July 4th and it always rained, so we gave up last year and grilled on the porch.  Good thing we did, because it rained, and it might rain again this year.  My dad has been harping on custard ever since we mentioned it, so Mom might give that a try too.   

Our supper tonight was based on the fact that my sister as been experimenting with making stuff out of goats milk.
Homemade pizza with our first ever homemade mozzarella!

We also made ice cream and caramel sauce, both from goats milk.  The caramel sauce is good, but the ice cream didn't exactly set up right.  We'll have to try a different recipe next time. 
 

Member, the girls did good! I have never had homemade mozzarella..  I bet is was great!!
We use to make homemade Ice Cream from custard my Mama would prepare! Vanilla, Strawberry, and Peach were my favorites. We would rotate from fest to fest. I need to ask her for a copy of the recipes. Good stuff!

A true story: A few years ago we made a visit to Washington DC. We took in all the sights and History we possibly could for the time we were there. The last night there we had dinner at Gadsby's Tavern in Alexandria Virginia. This place was PACKED with history! Just outside of the front door on the corner was a underground, brick laced, silo type deep pit and build well. We learned this was built for the sole purpose of storing ICE. Ice which was placed there each winter, cut, blocked, and stacked from the Potomac River just a couple blocks away! Of course ICE was a rare commodity in Alexandria Virginia in the summertime. Remember, there was no usable electricity in the time of George Washington. Actually this tavern was Georges' favorite eating and meeting place when he was in town. (As I said this place is packed with history!). Anyway Gadsby's Tavern was well renowned for having Ice Cream even in Mr Washington's day! I posted about the evening here a few years ago. If anyone is interested I will try and look up the topic.

Re: Remember George Washingtons address declining a third term (summary)
? Reply #3 on: January 14, 2019, 01:46:29 am ?

I am happy to tell you that I had the honor of visiting Mt Vernon! What a grand experience! We also had dinner at The Gadsby's Tavern Restaurant in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. We discovered this wonderful historically packed restaurant and tavern while taking a night tour of the Old Town of Alexandria, on foot, via lantern light.  We were so impressed that we came back on our on the next night for the dinner. This place is packed with history, not only from the early days, but also during the Cilvil War according to our (dressed in colonial attire), tour guide.  This place is where George Washington choose as a favorite dining place, (and was said to be the premiere house in America), when he was in Alexandria conducting business. Just outside the building is a brick lined, several feet deep, round under ground silo or cellar which was used to store ice during the summer months. Ice that was gathered form the Potomac River during the deep cold of winter and stored here.  Ice during these times was a luxury and rare. It was used to make a favorite treat, Ice Cream! The Gadsby Inn, (as a side line of income), was in the Ice business selling this very expensive commodity during the summer to other restaurants and private citizens who might be fortunate enough to afford it, for a premium price of course. Many members of Congress, some who would later themselves become President, would meet here to have dinner with Mr Washington as well as dignitaries form all over the world. Upon his retiring from public service the Continental Army marched past here with President Washington standing on the steps of this very Inn.
Although history tells us that the  Battle of Fort Sumter was the first battle of The Cilvil War, (with no causalities), according to our nighttime dressed in colonial attire guide, the first causality of The Cilvil War was in this very building! According to what he told us there was a huge Confederate Flag flying over this ''skyscraper'' of the day. (only three or four stories tall) This flag could be seen from our Nations Capitol and Ole Abe just couldn't stand the sight of it so close to Washington. Supposedly he sent some specially picked troops there to take it down.  The proprietor of the Inn shot the bearer of the flag dead on his way down the stair way making him the first causality of the war. Now guess who the second causality was? The proprietor! One of the escorting troops shot him!! We greatly enjoyed this dinner with the waiters and waitresses dressed in the attire of the days of our First President and the warmness of eating in the same room and Inn with so much history!  The meal was delicious!!

It was delicious and it was surprisingly easy to make.  It only took like 15-20 minutes from start to finish. 


We use to make homemade Ice Cream from custard my Mama would prepare! Vanilla, Strawberry, and Peach were my favorites. We would rotate from fest to fest. I need to ask her for a copy of the recipes. Good stuff!
We do homemade ice cream occasionally, but this is the first time we've tried it with the goats milk.  Oh man, I need to get me some peach ice cream, that sounds soooo good!  If we could just get good peaches around here.  We haven't been able to for several years now.

Oh that is awesome!  My family spent a good portion of my childhood in the Historic Triangle area of Virginia, so I really grew up around living history.  It really instilled in me an undying love for history.  I remember seeing ice houses in Williamsburg too.  Around here in the mountains, settlers didn't have access to ice, so they made spring houses for keeping goods chilled.  They would construct a small building with a hole in the floor overtop of a stream.  Our mountain water is around 50-60 degrees F in the summer, and colder in the winter, so they would store semi-perishable foodstuffs in containers in the cold water of the stream.  Incidentally enough, my mom used to do the same thing when she went to the mountains with her father.  Her and her friend would buy a case of beer and store it in the river to keep it cool!  :wink:  :cheesy:

Might be more burgers, WITH EGG, for the 4th.

We have chickens, which means we have extra eggs. (If you watched the rifle sling video, you heard the rooster crowing relentlessly). It?s been a while since I made up a batch of lemon curd. I might try Kathy?s ?s custard. My wife does like a custard pie.

My mom is really interested in trying it too.  Referring to Kathy's great grandmothers recipe, Mom would like to know a little more detail about "beat it to hell".  :cheesy:  Seriously though, is that beat it to hell with a whisk?  With a mixer?  What does it look like when you have mixed it enough?

My great grandmother used a whisk.  I use an electric mixer.  I beat it until it is foamy and let the foam settle, then beat it again for good measure.   :cheesy:  The cinnamon and whatever else you put in it will separate a bit and come to the top when it cooks but that's OK. 

I put the temp above at 300, but it takes a long time to cook at that temp.  You can do it at 325 but you'll have a bit tougher "skin" on it that way.  Just don't over-cook it.

Great, thanks for the clarification.  Do you guys just eat it plain?  My mom was thinking about making like a raspberry sauce for it or something.  Like I said, she was never much for this sort of thing, so she's not really sure how to serve it.

My mom has been saying the same thing!  She said, "I make way more impressive food in the winter when I have more time to cook."  :grin:

Last night it was homegrown zucchini patties, and leftover smoked pork and baked beans.

It?s very different than what my wife makes.
Kathy has 12 eggs and a little sugar.
Our recipe has 4 eggs, a little flour and one and 3/4 cups sugar.

Kathys was good. Very different.

I eat chilies poblanos at every Mexican restaurants can find them at. None compare to mine, but that?s beside the point. They are wildly different between restaurants.

One of my mom's specialties tonight: eggs benedict and potatoes.
It probably would have looked nicer if I had plated it together, but this is a meal where Mom has to make everyone's entrees in succession, and I didn't want my potatoes to be cold since I wasn't anywhere near first today.

We grilled up some of the trout we caught the other night and also had homegrown potatoes, homegrown zucchini, and a boxed noodle mix.  (My one sister is a picky eater sides-wise, and she basically lives on the stuff, so that Pasta-Roni angel hair is a staple in our meals.  We call them "her" noodles.)

One of my absolute favorite meals tonight: steak tips and mushrooms.  For sides we have homegrown potatoes with cowboy butter, and there was also a zucchini and onion dish that I don't like.  This is one of the top tier meals my mom makes; I swear this is as good or better than anything I've had in a restaurant.

Salt, pepper and butter for the long simmer before the lid goes on the squash.

We had barbequed chicken tonight too, with the obligatory squash side.  I forgot to take a picture of my plate but here is the stove so you can get an idea.  We'll use the chicken in sandwiches tomorrow for Sunday leftovers.

It is. If you get your nose right up to them you can smell the sweetness of the flowers. I planted four. Three made it. Two bloomed. One kept its blooms. I?m going to get a few more this fall.
I have one sourwood, two blueberries, one sourwood, two blueberries, one sour......all down between the back yard and the dirt road along the property line.

Those should serve you well in years to come.  There is no honey like that sourwood! 

We made sandwiches with our leftover chicken tonight.  BBQ on ciabatta rolls with homegrown pickled peppers and homegrown potato salad on the side.  (No zucs tonight finally! :grin:)  Eating in front of the TV tonight with the NASCAR race running late.  Alan, if you are listening, you'll be happy.  Kyle Busch had the pole and was leading the race when on lap 8 there was a sudden rain shower, and the car spun in the water, backed into the fence, and he was done for the day.  :sad:  He was jacked that NASCAR had taken so long to throw the yellow and let them know through their proxy, the pace car!  :cheesy:

I was just about to post some lunch.  I forgot to take a supper picture, but here are the leftovers.  Mom tried a new recipe, zucchini hamburger mac.  It was very good, especially with homemade honey wheat bread on the side!  Bologna I eat occasionally, but it's not my favorite sandwich.  I can honestly say I have never had a sardine, cracker or no.  Hoop cheese?  Is that like farmer cheese?  My sister tried making some farmer cheese a week ago, but it didn't really work.

Yes similar. I am afraid it has went the way of the 'Buffalo'. It seems even the name, Buffalo, is headed to near extinction along with the creature of its namesake. Now known as Bison. lol.
I can just see it now. Him coming out in his white hat and white suite, riding his beautiful horse, saddle arrayed in silver , bridle, and accessories as well.

:cheesy:  It's true.  Although I'm contributing to that name change I fear, as I am one of those people who corrects others when they call a bison a buffalo.  I'm just too taxonomically particular to remain attached to the romance of the old western name, I'm afraid.  :grin:


Lemon chicken tonight, with homegrown baby potatoes, the obligatory squash dish, and my sister's favorite noodles.

Just spaghetti and meatballs for us tonight, although we did have some of our first homemade butter for our bread.  It's so good, so much sweeter and creamier than store bought.

The antelope was from last year in Wyoming. Maybe one day we will have them around here. JK.

15th, I overlooked, ? Whats the meat like??

Its lean and more like goat. It does taste like what I relate to the sage like smell that they have when you are up close to one. It is often prepared in heavily spiced or seasoned dishes.

I did a taste test last year with potstickers, which are very seasoned. I made whitetail potstickers and antelope potstickers the same nite. I ate the antelope ones first, and they were delicious. Then I started in on the whitetail ones. They were delicious as well, and no change in flavor detected. Then I switched back to the antelope and they were still good, but I noticed the strong sage like musk flavor. Still good, knowing what it is. Then back to the venison and noticed the lack of said taste.

The next morning for breakfast I did the same routine on a smaller scale with the same results.

It is a thing that with heavy seasoning, the sage like flavor blends into the surrounding spices as if it is a spice or herb itself, until compared directly with a different meat.

I?ve not done anything simple such as a burger, since it can be a little overpowering to those timid about game meat.

Member I agree 57 is good in cooking but is also delicious, in my opinion, straight out of the bottle for certain meats. When we go out to a steakhouse, and you happen to see me add 57 as a dipping or topping sauce; It means the steak was not up to par and needing help! But with roast as 30 shows, mum; so soo good! lol I can almost taste it now 30! Keep em coming!

It's easy to make.  You take 2 sticks of room temperature butter and whip it in the mixer with the paddle attachment for about a minute, so it gets nice and creamy, then add 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar and 1/3 cup of honey and salt to taste (we add 1/4 tsp.).  Mix it in the mixer until all the ingredients are incorporated and the mixture is light and creamy, and enjoy!  We usually put it on biscuits, but it's great on toast too.

I totally agree.  Why would I drink something that tastes bad, until it tastes good?  Why wouldn't I just drink something that tastes good right now?  It's the same with alcohol for me.  I have tried it, and I don't like the taste of it, and I don't see any point in learning to.  As far as clothes go, I buy all my clothes at Goodwill or other thrift shops, so I can mix and match my own style.  Why would I want to look like everyone else anyway?

Hi 15,

Re: *...last of the cherry tomatoes...*

I grow these, Juliettes:

https://www.bing.com/search?q=juliette+tomatoes&form=ANNNB1&refig=784f25cff1a04ab391451d5ebf2d6ac6&sp=1&qs=AS&pq=juliette+tomatoes&sc=4-17&cvid=784f25cff1a04ab391451d5ebf2d6ac6

I'll be harvesting them ripe into November. Can't keep up, And in November I harvest the green ones for piccalilli!

I promise. I'll get a picture.

BTW: I took a photo of my Mimosa trees for Ben, but the pictures were *too big*, too many somethings, to post.

You probably need to resize them.  You can do it easily with an app like ResizeIt or Resizer, or with Paint on a PC.

My mom grew those a couple years ago and we loved them, but she couldn't seem to find any around here this year or last.  We had a lot of our tomato plants go down early due to a mole this year.

My 15-year-old sister has been really into helping my mom in the kitchen lately, so last night, for my mom's birthday, my sister cooked an entire meal all by herself for the first time, the first of any of us kids to do so.  She had a great time listening to music and having the kitchen all to herself.  She made cucumber salad, hash brown casserole, and Pillsbury cornbread muffins.

More practice pies.

Went heavier with the apples this time and added 2c of thick syrup made of apple cider and sugar. Much better. About half way through I egg washed the top and sprinkled raw sugar on top.

our apples were not so good this year so I skipped the apple pie.  Instead, we have had a huge crop of butternut squash to play with.  I love butternut squash soup and have been making muffins and mini-loafs for the freezer.

I like my soup a bit spicy but some make it sweeter and use spices like cinnamon in it.  Either way, it's a great winter meal.

It's good! 

Roughly:  one medium butternut squash cooked  (you can bake or nuke it). scrape meat into pot  One or two chopped onions.  A couple of good size carrots grated.  One or two diced potatoes.  Salt, pepper, red pepper flakes if you like it spicy, garlic, thyme.  Sometimes I add a bay leaf. 

You can slow cook it or do it on the stove until the potato and onion are done.  If you like it creamy, blend or whip it.  I like my chunky.  If you want, let it cool a bit and add some cream or 1/2 & 1/2.  Makes it richer.

The potatoes thicken it as it sits. You can skip the carrot if you want but it adds a bit of body.

I don't really have measurements because I just do it to taste.  Even better the second day   :grin:

Oops, forgot the chicken broth.  I use one of those boxes of broth unless I have some homemade in the freezer.  Blend it in with the squash and then add all of the above.

I have totally gotten into oatmeal recently.  No one else in my household likes it much, and I started experimenting with some that we had lying around, and now that I know how to make it like I like it, I love it.  I usually make mine with a spoonful of honey, a spoonful of brown sugar, a pinch of salt, a sprinkle of pollen, and a handful of sliced almonds, dehydrated apples, and craisins. 
 
More practice pies.

My mom made a huge batch of whoopie pies for Thanksgiving.  She did traditional chocolate ones, chocolate with peanut-butter filling, and she also made pumpkin ones, which I didn't include in the picture because something went wrong with them and the cookies kind of melted.  They'll probably still taste good, but they weren't really photogenic!  :wink: :cheesy:

Yes I think you are right. Maybe the response I replied to Brian on another topic will clarify and explain where and why I said what I did.

Thanks Ace, I do not feel I am good enough to be a preacher. I will give you one example. I could give many.....

Just yesterday I was reading replies and ran across Salvos' in the Cooking topic. Sal is always cutting up. I love Sals quick wit and humor. I took a quick glance of his posted food picture and assumed this was a picture posted in good humor, poking fun about his lunch, an 'older, mature' banana :)     
I went as far as to post a replied comment, appreciating his humorous side. 
After taking closer look on the PC instead of the phone screen, I can see that the banana was no banana at all, but some sort of sausage. Meaning a legitimate straight up post by Sal.

It 'was not' my intention to offend Sal, while looking back, I might have done.
It 'was' my intention to 'complement' what I perceived to be Sals' good humor. I made a mistake which might have hurt Sals feelings.

When looking at the picture I was thinking; "If Sal were to eat that rotten banana, he would be puking about supper time".

The joke I thought Sal intended, is the now the joke on me.

Yes I think you are right. Maybe the response I replied to Brian on another topic will clarify and explain where and why I said what I did.

Phil you would make a great preacher.

Thanks Ace, I do not feel I am good enough to be a preacher. I will give you one example. I could give many.....

Just yesterday I was reading replies and ran across Salvos' in the Cooking topic. Sal is always cutting up. I love Sals quick wit and humor. I took a quick glance of his posted food picture and assumed this was a picture posted in good humor, poking fun about his lunch, an 'older, mature' banana :)

Late night hotel room supper. The gas station next door had all the essentials though. Feels weird buying a $6 honey bear at a 7/11 because you didn?t come prepared. Microwaving frozen nuggets in a paper coffee cup, no issue. Buying honey, weird. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20211213/98f4495314d7fa842435278d0d8bad36.jpg)

I agree Alan, but I am not quite sure you are including that scrumptious setting placed just prior by our friend Sal with the half rotten banana!  :cool:
I think it's actually a sausage, Phillip, which is a bit more appetizing than a banana in that condition.  :shocked:  I'm still questioning how it got made into a sandwich though. . . .   :cheesy: 

My 15-year-old sister made dinner all by herself again last night.  She made chicken enchiladas, Spanish rice mix, and Bushes taco beans.  It was very tasty!

I think I see two kinds of beans at that setting. Bet that got sporty later on.

She says thanks.  There were no beans in the enchiladas, if that's what you mean.  So it was all good.  :wink:

It says filtered honey as the only ingredient. I did look at that before I ponied up the cash. But I?m not up to snuff in the labeling laws, so I could have been swindled with snake oil. I?ll have to say though, it tastes nothing like mine.

A bowl of cold oatmeal and molasses followed by a cup of anger and despair.

On the brighter side though, I am pretty regular. And that's important at my age.

The trouble with adulterated honey is it's extremely difficult to detect.  Here's an article from Dadant about it, which is a little old, and a more recent one from Wired.

We keep looking for a opportunity to try some sorghum.  We've never had any, and it's a such a classic southern and mountain staple.  It goes back to the days of the Civil War, if I remember correctly, because sugar was difficult to get due to the Union blockade.

Member when I was a boy there was a real old man that had a sorghum setup about a 1/2 mile from us. He still used a mule to extract the > juice< From the sorghum stalk. He had done this his whole life and made good money to boot.

Be careful of what you buy. Make sure it is real sorghum. Unfortunately some are cutting it with sugar cane molasses. I had a friend that stopped at the famous place in Missouri where they throw the rolls to you; (literally). I do not remember the name of the place but she picked up a quart for me. When I tasted it I was disappointed, I knew instantly this was not it. It only had a faint taste of sorghum. I read the fine print of the can which stated  sugar cane Molasses was added. Bummer! Kind of reminds me of the warning you pointed out to 30 about adulterated honey.

I hope you can find the real deal! Mum mum and mum good!! Lol 😂

Speaking of oatmeal, my mom always says she doesn't like oatmeal but wishes she did, and the other day I said to her, "Saying you don't like oatmeal is like saying you don't like salad.  You just have to figure out how you like it".  So yesterday I walked her through how I make my oatmeal, and she just put her own spin on it as we went along, and she really liked it!   :happy:

Last night we had sweet and sour rabbit over rice with everything bread.

Let's get this thread moving again. 'Tis the Season.

Show me them pies. Show me those tables. I don't seek entertainment, just poultry and game.

I snapped some photos of my stove (I cook in my wood burner) and my oatmeal breakfast. They're jpegs. I try to attach them and get the message, like, "Over 800 whatevers". I then edit it down to under 800, try to attach again, and get told "No larger than 200". WAATUPWIDAT?

OMG! Freeze Dried lemon meringue pie? I can hardly wait.

  I use the free version of the Tapatalk app on my phone. It?s super easy to post, but because I don?t want to pay for it, I only get to post so many pictures a month and then I get cut off. I tend not to resize pictures and post since it?s such a pain in the butt, so I usually just stop posting. That seems easier than opening the photo in the resize it app, going through five steps there and saving a duplicate in my photo album, then going to the full website and uploading a crappy looking compressed photo. I?d just rather not.
  I actually think I?m out of uploads on Tapatalk right now, so I might just have to tell you how it smells.
  We did spaghetti and meatballs the other nite. Italian sausage balls with Parmesan cheese inside them, and chunky sauce mixed with Vodka sauce. Garlic toast on the side.

Maybe I?ll just work on my storytelling since I?m out of uploads.

It was 4:30 in the morning and the house was silent except for the popping of the wood stove as it cooled.  The stove was against the wall in the main room of the old house. The stove had last been fed late the nite before and all that remained was a small bed of coals giving a little light to the immediate area in the room. Through the doorway into the kitchen I could hear the coffee pot mimicking the cadence of the wood stove as it dripped my morning coffee into the carafe and an occasional puff of steam hissing would disrupt the pattern of the coffee pot and wood stove as they seemed to be whispering to each other about something I couldn?t discern, but they seemed at peace about the matter.

I LOVE this line, it's extremely creative and really portrays that sense of quiet mystery about everything early in the morning.  In fact it's so good, I feel like it should be split off from the previous sentence, to help it stand out a little better.

Let's also try to rework a sentence or two to prevent any unnecessary repetition of words and proofread.

Four-thirty this morning the house was nearly silent except for the popping of the wood stove as it cooled from it?s nite?s work. It sat along the narrow side wall in the main room of the old house that led to an opening into the kitchen and down the hall. The stove had last been fed late the night before, and all that remained was a small bed of coals giving a little light to the immediate area in the room, hardly enough light to walk by, but enough to signal that it still had some life inside.

The goat burgers were DELICIOUS!  All of us liked them the same or better than beef burgers.  The meat was leaner and less mushy than store-bought beef, but not at all dry, and it had great flavor.

Baaaaheheheh or whatever a goat sounds like.
Where is the egg?
I?m not in the wrap everything in bacon crowd when it comes to game meat, but I do like to grind a half pound of bacon into a pound of ground venison when I do burgers.
Might be worth a shot. I mix a little salt and pepper in when I combine the bacon.

Goats actually very much say "Meh".  Sometimes they draw it out like "meeeeeeeeh" or "meeeheheheh", and sometimes they make it more staccato by lengthening the "m" like "mmmmeh".

Right, because the first time we eat goat burgers we're going to smother them in breakfast.  :wink:  :cheesy:

We did cut some of the goat fat into the burger so it wasn't extremely lean, but that sounds like a good tip.  Maybe we'll try that in the future.  We did find it lacking in salt/pepper, which my mom kind of anticipated, but we really wanted to try it plain the first time.

I had someone tell me about how their grandma used to do it in an oven when they were a kid. He couldn?t remember the details, but it was baked in the oven with a bunch of fat on top. Once the meat was cooked they would bring it out and the fat would cool on top and seal the jar or something like that. Sounds a little iffy. What?s your method.

I just put them in quart jars and sit in the oven about an inch apart from each other at 240 degrees for four hour.  Then turn the oven off while making real sure the door is never opened and then let them sit over night before moving.  We have put pork in when I was young but lately just chunked up deer and salt.  It is good to eat cold or hot.  I read that it is dangerous and so only say what we do not what others should do.  Some people hate instant mashed potatoes but if you are in a hurry you can add a little water to the deer and thicken with corn starch and have a pretty good meal in the time it takes to get water to boil, boom done.
It is really good just cold out of the jar on bread also.

I want to learn to do more middle eastern and Indian cooking.  my newish neighbors are from one of the former USSR 'stan countries and do a lot of middle east type cooking.  We shared a lot of produce with them this summer and they have shared dishes they make with us.  I am not a lamb fan, but they butchered and what he made was fantastic.
My sister does great Indian dishes because they have a bunch of friends from India and she's learned from them.  She got the cooking/artsy genes.  I didn't.   :cry:

Since Sal seemed eager for pictures, I thought I'd post a cooking photo today.  My mom got a Smithey Dutch oven for Christmas, and she's using it for the first time tonight making chicken and dumplings. She's absolutely loving it so far, although she's not used to having a pot where the handles get hot, so I predict she's going to burn herself on it before she learns not to hold the handle when she stirs.

I tossed a three pound chuck roast in the oven about an hour ago. Just peeled (usually don't, but greenish skin) potatoes, carrots, green beans and an onion to toss in. Staub #31. No turnip this time.

Pulled out my "special knife", old no-name, laser, blue steel. English cut.

Hi Folks,

Amazing! Did not lose power during that snowstorm. My area got 24 inches. My wife's friend's town got 30.9 inches. It all went pretty well. Now to get the snow off my eaves, snow rake. Hive entrances all clear. 45 degrees Thursday. Micro-climate. I'll bet my bees are out if there's no wind.

Anyway, question about your favorite mayonnaise. When I was a kid, it was home made. My favorite now and for a long time is a local brand, Cain's. I'll eat Hellman's. Don't like Miracle whip. I'm going to try Duke's and Kewpie if I can find them.

My northern roots come out here.  Everyone in the south loves Duke's.  Yuck!  I can't stand the stuff.  My mom heavily prefers Hellman's, so that's what we usually have, but Kraft is fine too.  We'd like to try making our own sometime, just to see what it's like, but I doubt my mom will ever be truly satisfied with anything but Hellman's.  Miracle Whip is the stuff of nightmares, but we have it in the house for recipes and because my dad likes it, but I'll rue the day I accidentally put it on a sandwich.  That and the day I used sweet pickles instead of dill on a hot dog, gross!  :oops:

Hi Folks,

Amazing! Did not lose power during that snowstorm. My area got 24 inches. My wife's friend's town got 30.9 inches. It all went pretty well. Now to get the snow off my eaves, snow rake. Hive entrances all clear. 45 degrees Thursday. Micro-climate. I'll bet my bees are out if there's no wind.
Good to hear you aren't stuck in a igloo up there, Sal!  We got an inch and half of unexpected snow over the weekend.  It was rough, but we survived by the skin of our teeth.  :wink: :cheesy:

Anyway, question about your favorite mayonnaise. When I was a kid, it was home made. My favorite now and for a long time is a local brand, Cain's. I'll eat Hellman's. Don't like Miracle whip. I'm going to try Duke's and Kewpie if I can find them.

What's your favorite, or do you make your own?

I grew up on Jimmy?s hotdogs up in Easton, Pa. I like mustard onion and pickle.

I wouldn?t start a fight over mayonnaise, with my wife, again. I like dukes. She likes something else, I don?t remember. There are usually two jars in the fridge.

Hi 15,

Tell your Mom a little-known fact about Hellman's mayonnaise:

Hellman's has been made in England since well before the 20th century. Well-liked in the UK, USA, and especially Mexico, it was incorporated into a number of traditional tasty dishes to give it a new, and much-loved, flavor. Hellman's was so popular in Mexico that many ships, even passenger liners, carried large quantities to New York, then to Vera Cruz, Mexico, for distribution throughout much of that nation, as it became a popular condiment (and therefore profitable cargo).

Getting even crazier: the Titanic was supposed to bring nearly a year's supply of Hellman's from England to New York, then Vera Cruz, but all it was lost when the Titanic sunk. The citizens of Vera Cruz were so upset when the learned of the sinking of the Titanic and all of the precious Hellman's that they declared a *National Day of Mourning,* which was called..

No Dukes in my part of the South. I have never heard of it until now. We do have Blue Plate and all the grocery store name sake brands as well but; Its Hellmans for most delights. "Hellmans Real Mayonnaise"  "Bring out the Hellmans and bring out the best!" Miracle whip is good for a tomato sandwich 'from time to time'.. Showing once again;  "Variety is the spice of Life".

Hardy-har!  :cheesy:  Funny story, Sal, but Richard Hellmann, who invented Hellmann's mayonnaise was a Prussian immigrant who lived in NY, which is where the only Hellmann's factory was at the time the Titanic sank.  In fact Hellmann's wasn't even sold in the UK until the 60's.  REAL fun fact about Hellmann's: the brand of mayo called Best Foods, which is sold west of the Rockies in the US and in Australia, New Zealand, and Asia, is exactly the same as Hellmann's, it's just for some reason sold under a different label in those areas. 

No Dukes in my part of the South. I have never heard of it until now. We do have Blue Plate and all the grocery store name sake brands as well but; Its Hellmans for most delights.

That's funny, it must be more of a Carolinas thing.  I remember seeing it in Virginia too, but it wasn't as universally adored there.

:cheesy:  We actually had a homegrown goat roast the other night.  My mom slowcooked it in the Crock Pot with some onion soup mix, and it was delicious.  Even better than beef roast, well, store bought beef anyway.  I didn't have time to take pictures because one of my sister's goats was showing signs of pre-labor, and we had to eat quick before we had new babies.

I don't think I've ever had actual gumbo either.  Although this begs the question, what exactly makes something gumbo?  Since I'm kind of questioning whether only okra and sausage qualifies.  :wink:

I thought I'd had it until I spent some time in the south and had real gumbo.  It's not just the stuff that you put in for meat and veg, but the seasoning.  I don't remember what the guys told me to buy, but I never could find it here.  Amazon maybe?

Perhaps some of our southern friends can help out.

I LOVE okra!  It's one of those things I never ate growing up in the north, and I don't know how I lived without it.  I love it so much we never have enough to do anything with cooking-wise, because I eat it all raw right off the plant.  Just slice it down the middle and sprinkle a little salt.  Mmmmm. . . .  :tongue:  Not everyone in my family likes it, so we don't grow a lot of it.  We hardly got any okra last summer, so I hope my mom and sister do better with it in the garden this year.

Now we have more problems.  I have to try jalapenos on a burger.  I'd also have to put cheese on my burger.  :wink:  To be fair, I put cheese on some burgers, but not all.

Those buns look very good. Did they taste as good as they looK? Mom and sister are on it with the baking and cooking.... Yum!
They were delicious, but they were a little too large, so next time they are going to make 10 buns out of the dough instead of 8.

I may have strayed a little. For one, I tend not to measure. For the final seasoning I wanted a little more salt, so I went with Ufra Pepper and Sichuan Salt. At the very very end, I still wanted a touch more salt, so, Tony?s to the rescue.

I agree!  That looks delicious!  I'd never have guess that was a throw-together plate of food.

What?s in the pumpkin?
Sausage, rice, and cheese, I think.  Then you just scrape out a little pumpkin meat with the stuffing and eat it with some hearty bread.  We also had some green beans on the side.

Outstanding!
It wasn?t bad. It was basically my pot sticker sauce recipe for the cooking liquid and then topped again when plated.

I may have strayed a little. For one, I tend not to measure. For the final seasoning I wanted a little more salt, so I went with Ufra Pepper and Sichuan Salt. At the very very end, I still wanted a touch more salt, so, Tony?s to the rescue.
There's nothing wrong with that.  There are few recipes that Mom doesn't adjust for our tastes.

Ate it for supper last night, lunch today and it will probably be supper again tonight.

I burned the garlic toast. Put it under the broiler all buttered up and seasoned, got to talking to my brother on the phone and next thing you know, out the door it went smoldering and stinking up the house over the yummy lasagna smell.

Once it cooled down I brought it back in and gave it a good scraping and we ate it.

After that last post I decided I would whoop up my wife some fresh chicken. She got home way later than us, as in kids in bed later, so it worked out.

Had some breasts in the fridge. Pounded it to 3/4? thick. Added a seasoning to the meat, then buttermilk and flour/instant potato flakes for the bread with parsley, thyme, and oregano in the dredge. Served over last night?s awesome lasagna with a looooooooooooooooot of Ricotta cheese and Italian sausage, ground beef, red pepper flake, 3-4 different kinds of tomatoes, parm, mozzarella, herbs and seasons. Topped it with more cheese and hit it with the propane torch ( used to light the wood stove ) to melt/bubble/brown the cheese. It went into a warm oven and waited for Mama to get home.

I hope so. She said it was good.

I figure Italian food is kinda like Mexican food.

Mexican-every plate is a combination of beans, rice, cheese and protein

Italian- pasta, sauce, cheese, protein

You can put the sauce on top and call it one thing, and put the sauce on the bottom, and BAM!!, it?s a different dish.
If the rice and beans are on the side it?s a soft taco with a side of rice and beans. If they are inside,,,,wait for it,,,,, it?s a burrito.

Hollow open ended pasta noodles with cheese is macaroni.
Pasta pockets filled with cheese is ravioli. (Ehhh, maybe that?s not the same.)

A round noodle with sauce is spaghetti  and a flat noodle with lite sauce is linguine.

Is a tortilla with meat and veggies a Fajita or Chimichanga?

I do coffee by morning, water by day, and beer by night. None of that involves Lime Pepsi.

But for real. I don?t do much caffeine after morning coffee. I can feel it too much. I thought the mango sounded interesting. Sometimes you win, sometimes?..It wasn?t the worst thing, but a little too sweet.

Sliced leftover cooked lasagna noodles into ribbons.

Cooked and Melted together:
Cream and stock left from the dumplings.
Milk
Some herbs and spices from the cabinet.
Found a bag of Italian cheese in the back of the fridge that wasn?t fully green yet.
Pesto added to the sauce at the last minute.

Topped with fresh parsley and red pepper for the win.

Banana pudding, anyone?  :happy:

I?m sure there are some layered in there, I gotta have more wafers. About 50% wafers, 25/25 on the bananas and puddin.
Hm, we're not quite at your requirements.  We're more like 25/25/50 wafers, bananas, pudding.

Title: What?s Cookin?
Post by: .30WCF on March 22, 2022, 10:37:07 pm
1/2 pint honey
About 2 tbsp red pepper flake
A pinch of smoked paprika
A pinch of chipotle pepper powder
A splash (+\- 2 teaspoons) apple cider vinegar

Warmed it in a pan for a few minutes (5-10 min on med heat to get the peppers mingling. Never bubbled, but got real thin.) then strained back into the jar

There is an alarming bite if you try it by itself, but I couldn?t scoop up enough on each bite of chicken or salmon. The salmon was the best. I?m gonna have to do a glazed salmon fillet.

Hi Folks,

We've used *Honey/Garlic* for years, beef, pork, chicken, pork, pork... In the early seventies a restaurant, The China Bridge, had *honey garkic spare ribs*. A young couple could eat and have fun for less than 10 bucks, and take some home.

We're simple for fish, though. Salt, pepper, maybe dredged or, in the extreme, crumbled Ritz Crackers/bread crumbs to soak up the juices. Love those crisp skins though, fried, grilled.

BTW: Never dealt with salt pork, unless bacon is included. When I was young, one of my favorite suppers was salt cod (soaked and boiled), new potatoes (boiled in their jackets), and boiled and mashed turnip,.... with hot bacon grease spooned over everything!!!!!!  GOURMET! Poor man's Finnan Haddie.

The grease had to be hot enough to crackle when spooned on. We all used to moan and laugh when we got a *woody turnip*, but when they were sweet, smiles all around. More bacon grease please! Give me some of those bits! (Remember everybody had that can of bacon grease in the fridge?)

Food like that'll kill you now.

We kept bacon grease not only for lining the bottom of a pan, but for snake bit dogs. A cup full is an excellent snake bit remedy for a bitten dog. When bitten the dog will lap it up. We never lost a dog with this nor had negative results.

My mom has one of those!  She has it in a jar though.  She actually started keeping and using bacon grease relatively recently, so that she could use up something we had and save on butter.  Plus it's delicious!  :tongue:

Yes feed the entire cup. I do not know why it works. Maybe part of the reason is because the grease goes into the dogs system instead of just the outer surface? I don't know. (I have heard) that snakebite does not harm hogs. Is this true, again I do not know. What I do know is we had 'several' dogs bitten by snakes through the years, Copperheads and Cottonmouth Moccasins. (no rattlesnakes in my area) Straight to the kitchen for the fix. They will swell but it never failed.

Unlike a city fellow which moved close enough to become a neighbor and a friend. His border collie got snake bit unknown to me until several days later.
Once the swelling went down, the poor thing had which yellowish stinking pus oozing from its neck and later that entire area deteriorated with a stinking nasty open wound that looked 'horrible'! He did take it to the vet but the damage was done. With the proper meds the suffering dog did recover but the entire incident was nothing pretty.
 
After educating him of bacon grease and himself having more bitten dogs he is now a bacon grease enthusiast. He has henceforth experienced the same good results of bacon grease as the rest of us country hicks. lol

By the way this guy is so much fun. I will have to do a writing on him sometime and place it in the right section. Describing his transformation from a suit wearing city man to a country overall, thumbs in the straps country boy.

If you try it I?ll probably leave the smoked paprika out next time and either add more pepper flake or just let it steep longer. It?s mellowed out some. I was dipping rotisserie chicken in it today.

It sounds good to me, but a lot of people in my family aren't into spicy, so I'm not sure if we even have the ingredients in the house to make this.  We definitely have red pepper flakes, but I doubt we have smoked paprika and chipotle powder.  At least the paprika is optional.  :cheesy:  I also really don't like ACV, so I'd probably go for some other kind of vinegar.  I'd like to try it though.

Google hot honey recipes. Most just had red pepper flake and vinegar. Some just had red pepper. But since I can?t follow the rules I tried to make it a little smokey too with the smoked paprika and chipotle.
If your not that into spice, then the 2 tablespoons of pepper and you can?t really tell there is the vinegar except a slight tang on the back end.

I'll look around and see what I can find in the way of a recipe.  Since my mom isn't into spicy, it's the kind of thing that I should probably take the initiative on, or I might never get any. 

My mom and sister made a new cake last night.  Well actually it's just a new icing for Mom's favorite yellow cake recipe.  They took some of our home freeze dried strawberries and put them through the food processor to make strawberry powder, which they used to make strawberry icing.  It's SOOOO good, it's like my new favorite cake.

It?s a solostove. It circulates air like a newer wood stove does and has secondary combustion that burns the smoke. It?s clean burning and you don?t have to keep dodging the smoke.
You can see the flames coming in from the holes along the rim burning the smoke away.

I suppose that makes sense, but I haven?t paid it much attention. I don?t think a hotdog or marshmallow is over the fire long enough to pick up much smoke flavor anyway.
I would imagine there is a difference if smoke flavor is something you sensitive to.
My clothes and hair don?t smell anywhere as strong as with a normal campfire.

Oh, I'd miss even that.  Smelling like smoke is a huge part of the fire pit experience for me!  :cool:  Although I bet it's nice not having to deal with your eyes burning if the wind is blowing the smoke in your direction.  We often do burgers on the fire, and I bet they'd be less smoky.

30, I made some hot honey tonight because we had salmon for my sister's birthday.  It was SO good.  I just mixed 2 teaspoons of Frank's hot sauce into a 1/2 cup of warmed honey.  Surprisingly, my mom particularly was all over it.  She has already planned two meals to have coming up just for the purpose of highlighting it.  She's wants to have some on the counter as a permanent condiment.

The Dutch Ovens as shown for bread baking were once sold at Harbor Freight. I do not know if they still are...

This was so cool to watch!  I watched it right after I had just watched an episode of Gunsmoke, so it paired nicely with that.  :smile:

I don't know about Harbor Freight (don't have one near me unfortunately) but there are definitely companies that sell them still.  My mom was considering getting one.  She does have a Dutch oven, but it's a different style than that one, so it can be used on a stovetop as well as in a fire.  (It's the pot she used to cook the chicken and dumplings a while back.)

Member I bought mine several years ago and it came in 6 qt size. It is the type with the lip on the top edge for holding coals. You Mom, being interested in this type cooking, will love it! We haven't used ours many times but it is fun to use..  I bet 30 would like one also if he doesn't already have one.

Did it taste like franks, or just pick up a little heat?

I?m still working on the first jar I made. I?m going to kick it up a little on the pepper flake on the next one and skip the chipotle powder and paprika.

I?m sure franks has a similar vinegar content as to what I made if you figured out the ratios. I did a splash of vinegar to a half pint jar. I remember you had an aversion to vinegar. Just thinking out loud.

Hi Folks,

Ya know sumpin? I've been mixing up a honey, vinegar, red pepper flakes and mint for Thai/oriental stuff as a dipping sauce. That and a spicey mustard will compliment egg rolls, dumplings, tempura.

Many people don't know that the simple cabbage is the main ingredient to egg rolls. I *pre-cook* the egg roll stuffing and let it cool a bit before rolling it.

Dumplings can be eaten either just steamed or steamed and then fried.  Our egg rolls are fried only. They come out more like fat packets.

We don't make the dough wrapper. But the wrapper (and the dumpling wrap) can be bought at the supermarket. It keeps well in the freezer.

Ginger and *Five Spice* or *Seven Spice* is your friend also.

I'm just up waiting on my club*s bee delivery. We got a call about an hour ago. ETA 3:30. 900 packages from Wilbanks.

Gotta go!

Somewhere in the middle.  It didn't become Frank's flavored honey, but it took on the tanginess and heat of Frank's that we really like.

I?m sure franks has a similar vinegar content as to what I made if you figured out the ratios. I did a splash of vinegar to a half pint jar. I remember you had an aversion to vinegar. Just thinking out loud.
I don't have an aversion to vinegar, I have an aversion to apple cider vinegar.  I love most vinegars, and pickles are like my favorite food, but I can't stand ACV for some reason.  As I was looking at people's recipes online, it occurred to me that the added ingredients are basically the ingredients in hot sauce, so why not just add a hot sauce that I already like.

I'd be interested in a recipe for that too.  My mom used to have a recipe for Brunswick stew that she got from a neighbor of ours a long time ago, but she can't seem to find it, and she's been thinking she'd like to make some again.

My recipe is for a 20gallon pot so would need some adjusting?..
Approx 10lb beef and 10 lb chicken-  I used 5 chuck roast and 6 chickens.   The meat was precooked in Instapot and pulled apart, cut into pieces
10 lb onions - shredded
2 small heads cabbage shredded
3 - 4 pods hot pepper
10 - 15 quarts stewed tomatoes - add more for color if needed
6lb butter beans
10 lb potatoes shredded
6 lb corn
Salt / pepper to taste
Fry some side meat/ fatback in pot.  Then feel pot 1/2 full of water and bring to boil.
Add meat and return to  boil - cook for a little until meat starts to shred
Add onions and cabbage - return to boil and cook til tender
Add butter beans cook til tender
Add potatoes (once potatoes added - pot will need to be stirred constantly to avoid burning / scorching)
Add corn and cook.

Stirring is important throughout to avoid scorching.

Total cook time was approx 5 hours.  Prep of meats, onions, cabbage was done during week leading up to cooking.  Potatoes were prepped night before although once stew is cooked all except butter beans and corn are completely cooked up and can?t be seen.

I put up / froze approx 24 quarts.  My son who helped me
Cook took some and some was eaten once cooked by several

Hope that helps!

I do like my cast iron pie plates and casserole pan. If I had my way my cereal bowl would be cast iron and I wouldn?t have two of the same pattern plates in the house, but my wife doesn?t like the weigh of cast. I?ve thought about trying some of the new, thinner carbon steel pans, but I like heavy cast.

Mom used to feel that way too, but she kept trying and eventually got a feel for it.  She said that was the most important thing, just learning how to work with dough until you have a sense of what is normal and what is not.  Kind of like beekeeping, I guess.  :happy:
Title: Re: What?s Cookin?
Post by: Kathyp on May 01, 2022, 12:08:27 am
Good for her!!  it probably took me a year of making OK sourdough before I got it right.  The real key, besides your mothers observation, is that it needs a long time to 'sour'.  From mix to bake takes me 2 days.  The longer it rises and sours, the better the taste. 

It takes me weeks to get a good starter going, but part of that is where I live.  Any time but summer and it takes forever to get foamy.   :grin:

For a while I was making four loaves worth at a time in a turkey baking pan a couple times a week.  I would do the  no stir where you just barely get it mixed and then I would put it on top of the refrigerator for 18 hours and then just flatten and fold the four corners in and let raise for a couple of hours and bake.  Then there is no kneading and the yeast works the dough for you and it is so easy.  Did it for about two years and then just quit.  Giving too much bread away and filling the freezer too full.  It was fun though.  Toast two pieces every morning and put a piece of cheese and one slice of bologna and a fried egg with the yolk not totally cooked on each.  It was so good.

When I would get behind on making bread and would have to feed the yeast, I would make sour dough pancakes cause I could not make myself throw away half of the starter every time it needed fed. 
Cheers

Title: Re: What?s Cookin?
Post by: Kathyp on May 01, 2022, 10:49:02 am
gww, sounds pretty much like mine except my first rise was a wet rise so a little kneading after that to mix in the rest of the flour.

I know what you mean about throwing away the starter.  I just saved as much of mine as I could in the fridge and used it in the bread.  Still had too much!

I had to quit making it because I was eating it!   :cheesy:

This makes me want to start some again.

Yeah, my mom has talked about how hard it is to waste so much when you are getting the starter going.  I guess it's the price you pay for not having to use store-bought yeast.

Can't really get around it but for anything you use flour and water you can use that starter.  For awhile I was putting it in the freezer and using as gww did for things like pancakes.

My bee club has several *potlucks* each year. I'm embarrassed if I take more than four halves. Love it when we get multiples.

Tonight? Squash ravitolies! Sage, garlic, nutmeg and some old hard cheese. Sauce with all that and a touch of butter and brown sugar and coconut cream and peacans. A bit o* sherry.

I love them fresh from the field. When I was a kid we use to do the same thing. There was a town in Our area that had strawberry fields. It was a family outing for us too.

No, but that sounds delicious!  We do sugared strawberries sometimes, I bet you could make something similar with them.  I'll be trying that next time we get strawberries!

Speaking of breakfast, I made some granola yesterday.  Now that it's warm my mom and I haven't really be into eating hot oatmeal for breakfast, so I found a recipe for cold granola cereal online, and it's delicious!  It's exactly what we were looking for.

This was actually yesterday night's supper, which I didn't have time to post until now.  My little sister made bubble pizza, which is like a pizza casserole with Pillsbury biscuits as the base.  It's super simple, but super good.

Then for dessert we had homemade ice cream with sugared strawberries.

Some of us preferred my other sister's homemade cajeta (Mexican caramel sauce), which she makes from her goats milk.

Hi 15,

for all I know it's the cider part I don't like.  :grin:

I have too much time on my hands.

I know. I know. It's all about the vinegar!

I had to get creative for my lunch today, as there wasn't much around, so I took some leftover homefries and warmed them up in the microwave with leftover bacon and some Colby jack cheese, then topped with ketchup and ranch.  I call it "Fair-style Homefries".

We have a big bed of mint at the side of the house, and all summer my mom will make what we call "summer tea".  Some people call it "meadow tea".  She steeps the mint leaves in water and then makes a syrup out of that.  Then to make the actual drink she adds the syrup concentrate to water with a little bit of lemon juice.  I think it's good, but most of the people in our family go crazy for it.

I was just looking through old cookbooks for a new bread recipe idea and pulled out my 1943 Joy Of Cooking book.  I got it on ebay years ago and it's a bit tattered, but it's so fun to read.  In the back are substitutions that can be made and it was added because of rationing.

Don't read too much in anything I post.

That last one was just my adolescent male brain acting out again. I saw something, and said: *Hey! I'll share this.*

Sometimes I forget there are ladies present.

BTW! I NEVER paid attention to those male/female symbols. It was a long time before I realized you were a "girl" (I'm old. Most females are "girls" to me. I sensed you were young,... and you picked your name, 15, in accordance with that Antonio Banderas movie, The 13'th Warrior. I don't know any 14'th Participant.

Hey! Two boiled lobsters last night,... and corn,... on the cob.

That's funny that you didn't realize I was a girl.  :cheesy:  I actually didn't notice the gender symbols on our profiles for a while either.  For some reason they seem to just get lost in the shuffle.  And no matter how old I get, I'll answer to "girl" any day.  Although you wouldn't have needed to "sense" that I'm young either, as my age is on my profile too.  :cheesy:

and you picked your name, 15, in accordance with that Antonio Banderas movie, The 13'th Warrior. I don't know any 14'th Participant.

Nope, guess again.  I've never heard of that movie actually.  I refuse to tell anyone what my screen name means, but if you would manage to guess correctly, I will tell you if you are right.  :cool:

My sister has been experimenting with soft cheese from her goat's milk for a while, and she's gotten really good at it lately, but this week she made her first hard cheese: colby. 
[ You are not allowed to view attachments ] 

After resting a few days, today we waxed it in beeswax mixed with a little coconut oil to make it more pliable.

Now it will age in her "cheese cave", which is the real term for where you put cheese to age; for us it's an old fridge in the garage that's set to be between 45-60 F.  We'll be able to eat it in July.  :happy:

i grew mushrooms inside and then made soap which I am still using.

  For awhile I really wanted to make a wood gasifier. 

I have watched you tube and read internet stuff on making hard cheese but have still not made the leap.  I really hate getting hooked on these types of projects on the one hand but have been able to use it all so far and I do like cheese.  :grin:  I do not know what I will end up doing but do appreciate people showing me that it can be done.  I do usually find doing stuff does end up being a bit harder then it looks when you first start.

Just so you know, feel free to PM my sister on the soap forum if you want to talk to her about it.  Obviously, this is just our first go round, so she doesn't know that much about it yet, and we don't even know how this cheese will turn out, but she knows way more about it than me.  She also just said that if you want, you could join her goat forum, and post on her cheese thread, because no one else is so far!  :cheesy:  And her soft cheese is ROCKIN' too!  I'll post a picture of it on my bagel tomorrow morning.  I didn't think anything could replace cream cheese on a bagel, but this absolutely can.  It's PHENOMENAL!

Speaking of cream cheese, I made a double batch of pumpkin roll for my first time last night.  I only used half of the spices the recipe called for just like I do when I make pumpkin pie (also last night) as I don't really like the strong spice cake flavor as well as I like the pumpkin flavor.  Lots of cream cheese and it was ok but if I do it again I will cut some of the spiced down even more.  Thanks for the mention of the forums.  I am thinking I am going to not get too wound up right now cause I will be baby sitting my grand kids next week and that takes a whole bunch out of me.  But I will remember your sister.  I hope you post on it in june when you try it and give you thoughts.
Thanks

Speaking of cream cheese, I made a double batch of pumpkin roll for my first time last night.  I only used half of the spices the recipe called for just like I do when I make pumpkin pie (also last night) as I don't really like the strong spice cake flavor as well as I like the pumpkin flavor.  Lots of cream cheese and it was ok but if I do it again I will cut some of the spiced down even more.  Thanks for the mention of the forums.  I am thinking I am going to not get too wound up right now cause I will be baby sitting my grand kids next week and that takes a whole bunch out of me.  But I will remember your sister.  I hope you post on it in june when you try it and give you thoughts.
Thanks
Cheers

I love pumpkin roll, but to me, that's a fall thing to eat.  I'll definitely post an update when we finally get to taste cheese. 

Here's my bagel from this morning.  So delicious. . . .

Hi Folks,

What's it looking like for the Fourth for all of you?

We're keeping it simple, Pearl Kountry Klub franks, beef/pork hamburgers, and a few *accoutrements*. No frills.

Pearl is local to me. Good meats, snappy hot dogs.

It doesn't take much, but I get a kick out of all the photographic evidence posted here.

Hi Folks,

What's it looking like for the Fourth for all of you?
So we have tried for like 4 years to do the fire pit on the Fourth of July, but it has rained every year and it's hard to time out the fire with the fireworks in town, so we've finally admitted to ourselves this year that the fire pit does not work on Independence Day.  I think my mom is planning on making corn dogs. 

I've been totally slacking off on this thread lately.  I took some pictures for it, but we've been fishing a lot after supper so I never seem to have time to post them.  Here's some backlogged ones to satisfy everyone. 

Last week my little sister, who is becoming quite a cook lately, made lasagna soup, cucumber and tomato salad, and pepper biscuit pull-aparts.

You know how some people do Christmas in July?  Well in our house we do Thanksgiving in July.  We feel like Thanksgiving dinner is just too economical and too good to have it only once a year, so some time around the middle of summer we always do a turkey.  We have smoked one in the past, but we just baked it like normal this year.  We also have the cornerstone sides of our Thanksgiving meal, but there are things like pumpkin roll/pie, creamed corn, and cranberry sauce that we don't have in the summer and are only saved for the real thing in November.

.30,

I'd gladly go out to a restaurant and pay for that meal on a Friday night date. But you can't get this food out.

Big portions of salmon there. I can smell it. I can feel it in my mouth. I can taste it. That squash does look good.

All good.

What's with the Thanksgiving sides, man?!   :cheesy: 
My mom would call that chicken-fried steak.  She tried to make it once, but it was tough and not good.  Do you have a recipe for that, or are you just winging it?  Any tips? 

I'll do something a little different and post our brunch from this morning.  My mom always makes a big brunch on Sunday, and then we don't really eat lunch, just a snack and then a light supper.  This morning we had bacon, hotel style eggs, and strawberry cream cheese pastries with patriotic sprinkles.  :happy:

Usually I cook, but my wife has the last couple nights. The kids picked the sides and helped. I think the marshmallows was what sold them?

The cube steak was pre-cubed from the store. (Scored all over, almost minced) Breaded and fried, then 6 hrs in a crock pot.  Gravy made from the juices, and served over potatoes.

We had a Yankee Candle, Harvest Candle going. I do miss fall.

Our beef cows would never allow us to milk them with out a severe stomping.

Thanks!  She said she'll give it a try sometime.  The crock pot is the automatic fix for making things tender, I guess.  We crock pot our home raised rabbits a lot, since they are so lean.

Looks amazing!  Big steaks are hard.  We basically only do steak tips now because my mom gets stressed out about grilling them, and the steak tips come out perfect every time.

Hey, there's no shame in that!  :happy:  My mom doesn't just come up with this stuff on her own either.  I can count on one hand recipes she developed by herself out of thin air.  She gets her ideas from Pinterest and blogs mostly.  The big reason for so much variety in our cooking is we have too many people to afford going out to eat regularly, so she basically learned to homemake everything.  It's cheaper, and with lots of little kids, it's easier.  Most of the time it's better too.  She just said if you let her know what kinds of food you like to eat, she can probably recommend a bunch of recipes, none of which are original!  :cheesy:  She's not kidding either, if you want recommendations, just let me know.

This one is another hit from The Pioneer Woman.  https://www.thepioneerwoman.com/food-cooking/recipes/a11357/classic-corn-dogs-and-cheese-on-a-stick/

My mom has a couple important notes. 
1. Ree's original recipe makes WAY too much, even for our big family.  My mom halves the recipe and further reduces the water.  It's kind of a feel for it thing, but you want the batter to be thick enough that it won't slough off in the deep fryer, so she usually uses around 2 cups of water instead of 3.   
2. We like to use bun sized hot dogs, since they are longer and have a nicer coating to meat ratio.  Now keep in mind that they have to fit in your deep fryer or whatever you are frying in, so if you have a small one, you may only have room for normal sized hot dogs, and it's fine with those too.     
3. For sticks we use thin wooden skewers that Mom cuts to size with a kitchen shears.

I purposefully drove 18 miles to buy a jar of Duke's Mayonnaise (It was hot. Car has AC). $6.19 for a 30-ounce jar, and it was *Tangy Lime".

I didn't get it. Waste of gas. Car has AC.

We finally tasted my sister's colby cheese yesterday.  She had made two wheels several days apart, and we tasted them both.  She messed something up with the first wheel, so it is a little bit rubbery and bitter tasting, and it also grew a little bit of mold, which we just cut away.   The second wheel is really good!  We don't normally eat colby, especially not artisan colby, so we aren't really sure if it tastes like colby or not, but it's good whatever it is!  :grin:

gave the smaller 5 gal bucket one to mom for at the lake.  I did grill some thick rib type meat and about three zucchini cut in half on it but did not take pics.  It was slow but the normally super tough meat was good.

Got some baby backs going tonight. They just came out of the smoker and went into the foil for the last two hours.

ribs in the smoker tonight too, but I do mine in foil first and then uncover and smoke.  Is there a reason you do it in the order you do, or does it matter?  I had mine in BBQ sauce if that makes a difference.  I am open to change if I am doing it wrong!   :cheesy:

Ribs,
There are a few trains of thought on ribs. Generally 4-6 hrs of cooking, with some combination of foil and smoke. Some are 2/2/2, foil/smoke/foil, or smoke/foil/smoke. Some are   4/2, 2/4, 1/4/1??.

I usually go for 6 hrs a +\- for fall off the bone ribs. However, competition ribs need some amount of ?bite? or ?pull?. I skip the ?bite? for total tender, fall  off the bone ribs. If you like the pull the meat off with your teeth, 4 hrs may be better suited for you.

As for the order of smoke vs foil, in my opinion, you will take on more smoke flavor if you start with the smoke. There is a theory, that meat will only absorb so much smoke. Smoke is absorbed early in the process, and only for so long. I?ve never done the comparison research, but it makes sense to me that early smoke is more potent than smoke applied after the meat is mostly cooked, basted in sauce and shielded. I just don?t believe that if you pre-cook the meat, cover it in sauce, the smoke ring will penetrate as far. It?s more of a dusting of smoke. That may be your preference. Light smoke.

I like heavy smoke flavors, you may not. That?s why there are so many version?s people swear are the best. I impart 3-4 hrs of smoke, wrap in foil and bake at 225 for the remainder of  the 6 hrs. I think this gives a relatively thin cut of meat enough smoke, then locks in the moisture for the finish to keep it moist and fall off the bone vs letting it dry out some towards the end.

Thanks.  I like strong smoke on things like pork loin, but hubby likes BBQ sauce on the ribs.  They were good, so I guess that's what counts, but yes, the smoke was lite.

I'm not sure the exact timing on our ribs, but I know we do several hours unwrapped to get them good and smoky, then several hours wrapped to get them nice and juicy, and then over the last hour my mom adds BBQ sauce to them like every 15-20 min. or so, and then takes them off.  We haven't done ribs in a while, but man they are good.  :happy:  I'll try to remember to post my supper tonight.  We've just been busy and/or eating leftovers all week.

We don't eat lunch on a Sunday.  We have a big brunch, and then we have a snack at like 3:00 and then a light supper.

Here's a smattering of food from this week.  I took a bunch of pictures but didn't have time to post them until now. 

BBQ rabbit, noodle mix, and pineapple salsa.

We usually freeze dry our surplus goats milk, but we can't right now because, as I mentioned on the prepper thread, the freeze dryer keeps tripping the circuit breaker, and our handyman had one of his guys get COVID, so it's a two week wait until he can come out to put in a circuit for it.  As a result my sister was making lots of dairy products this week to use up the extra milk.  She has tried several times to make yogurt, but it always comes out way too runny.  She tried a new technique this week, and it finally worked, and it is delicious!  It's better than any store bought yogurt.  She sweetened it with my honey.

She also made raspberry sherbet with our ice cream maker, and we topped it with some leftover sugared peaches.

My mom also made a sunflower cake with an unopened package of Peeps we had left over from Easter.

Awe 15,

Looks too good!

Wife and I make yoghurt. Absolutely right! Better than store bought. Cut it with a knife, like cheese. If that's your honey, not Coca Cola, love that dark stuff. The scent!

We had grilled swordfish the other night, on a 1978 propane grill. Flavour from the ages  :wink:. Can't eat that stuff too much though. Mercury.

Going out tonight for Italian. She deserves it.

Nothing like home cooking though. Look at you and 30.
