Title: So....Whatcha Eating?
Post by: Xraycer on August 19, 2017, 09:46:38 PM
After a busy day of chores and shooting, the wife fixed the family a really tasty dinner. A big old roast of swine. For desert, a peach and blueberry cobbler made from scratch.

Now to sit back and watch a little football with a cold brew.

This is the way Saturdays are made to be.

So, what are you eating?

Wife and kids out of town visiting in laws. For this raccoon it's whatever I can scrounge up.

Just stuffed my face at my new favorite restaurant, a Greek place around the corner from my house. 
gracious is it good!  Gyro flights for apps and Bang Bang Chicken sammich for entree.  Headed to the couch now for some relaxing.  ;)

Sister is visiting from Bay Minette, Al. for a few days (she shoots too). Betty Lou made ham n eggs w/biscuits for breakfast. Home mad PB cookies to snack. Stuffed shells for dinner and a big ole pot of chicken noodle w/dumplings and mashed taters for tomorrow. And of course, bud light throughout.

At this point in my life, my diet tends to be boring and repetitive (I like it, but most probably would not).
I usually cook a couple of times weekly, and make a dish that will feed me for several nights. I eat the same thing nightly until it's gone, then cook something else.
Currently, it's a chicken veggie soup with lots of veggies, a slightly tomato-y base, and some jalapenos to make it a little spicy. (oh and a little cumin)
I also mix a huge mixed greens salad once or twice a week by chopping up spring greens mix, romaine, green onions, broccoli slaw mix, and slivered almonds / dried cranberries. I keep it in a large plastic container in the fridge, and eat a couple of servings daily, with dressing, tomatoes and croutons. Once this past week, I made kung pao chicken, but I usually make a Japanese style / sukiyaki stir-fry, and have it over rice. Sometimes IO get really wild, and have THREE different items in one meal- LOL :D

Post by: bReTt on August 20, 2017, 04:16:13 AM
I work Saturday afternoons into the night so it's usually some leftover from lunch that day or maybe the previous day.  Occasionally I will eat out for dinner.  Where and what depends on the area of the city that the work takes me. 

Tonight was a place called Suni's pizza and burgers (first time there).  I had a Suni burger which was a bacon cheese burger with onions, tomato, lettuce, mayo and pickle with some fries on the side.  It was good but not great.  I would eat there again if I were in the area and hungry but I wouldn't make a special trip for it.  What I really wanted was a Greek chicken sandwich and a salad 🥗.  Maybe next week.

As I said earlier.. Sister is visiting for a few days so I might blow the lead dust off the bank card and take the girls out for breakfast this morning. There is a buffet joint over in Troy that does breakfast southern style. I happen to like catfish and eggs for breakfast. A side of cheesy potatoes and I'm good to go. Just down the road is Walmart and TSC. My sister and I inspire each other in the sport department and Betty Lou is weak and vulnerable with my sister around. To say the least I'll stock up on pellets.
Then I'll probably follow Kris' lead and do the liquid diet thing, hold the fang removal and add alcohol.

Evidently I'm not the eater this morning... I'm the eaten.
Grabbed up the Varmint and headed out to recon the parameter this morning while the girls were still checking for eye lid leaks. Sneakers, ankle socks and shorts were not my best option for hunting garb. You would think I took a sharpie and drew little targets all up and down my legs. Chiggers, mosquitos. fire ants and things I didn't even see made a meal out of me. A hot shower soothed the burning and itching very well. Unsuccessful hunt to say the least.

Mama stayed overnight to watch the grandkids, so I got up
at 5:30 and made a batch of homemade English Muffins. She got home at 7:30 and I made "Joe McMuffins" for breakfast for us.  Took a small boneless ham out of the freezer, and will make scalloped potatoes, steamed & buttered broccoli with tomato & cuke salad for dinner (lots of tomatoes and dukes in the garden) This will hold us for two days. I do most of the cooking since Mama isn't retiring until January, so I try to cook enough for two meals so I. Don't have to cook every day. Might make homemade Italian bread and sandwich thins this afternoon for the upcoming week's lunches as well.

Chunky honey-roasted peanut butter and slab-cut "no nitrites" Applewood smoked bacon on cinnamon raisin muffins and, because I'm a 21 year old trapped in a 48 year old body, a Spike energy drink and a Margarita.

Nobody ever accused me of always making the best life choices. 

And I'm probably gonna have some Lidl Skyr yogurt with a chopped banana so I can pretend I ate something healthy.

Wife and kids are at the waterpark, so I am left to defend for myself with lunch. Out running errands and need to get home to mow the lawn. Heard commercial for Taco Bell's new burrito: beef, cheese and potatoes........and it was only a dollar. I typically don't eat Taco Bell, but for only $1,  I'll give it a shot. It was actually pretty good and filling. The burritos were much bigger than I thought they were going to be. Looks like I'll be visiting TB again for this cheap eats.

Now that you mention it, I have seen a fair buncha deer in the woods behind the house.  The Pom usually scares them away.

As it is, since I won't be driving until tomorrow morning, I may as well have another margarita.

Side Note: there's a non-carbonated energy drink called Xtreme Shock that gives a serious niacin flush.  Your whole body has a heated "pins and needles" feel, especially focused on your hands and face.  I love that sensation, but as I mentioned before, nobody ever accused me of making great life choices.

I'm going to grill some chicken thighs and baste them in teriyaki sauce.  Rice will be added to the rice cooker and a salad to go along with them both.  If I think about it I will add a picture or two. I may bust out an air rifle whilst I watch the chicken on the grill.  Now which one do I want to shoot?  🤔🤔🤔

It was delicious Dillon.  I love teriyaki made at home on the grill the best over any restaurant.  There are some really good teriyaki joints around but it just better from home.

Ghirardelli brownie mix is the best boxed stuff that I have had.  I prefer it over the other brands.  Scratch brownies are really good too.  The boxed stuff is just so easy that we do that most of the time.

Had a pork chop with rice and some salad.  SWMBO tried experimenting, and she wasn't happy with it.  Too many different ingredients and she committed a major oopsie: using onions.  Searing that became poaching on a chop that already had some rub on it.  The pineapple helped balance it, but the onion and searing poaching unbalanced the flavors.  Had a lot of potential, so next time it will be probably be dead on the money and deeeeeelishusss!

I still ate it so it wasn't that bad :D

Yep!  Walmart plates.  We gotta buy the cheap stuff because it get broken so easily around here with 8 kids in the house.  These plates have turned out to be pretty durable, cheap and readily available to replace.  We bought them in sets so we have big plates, little plates, bowls and mugs.  Nice to know that their are others out there with great taste in tableware.  Ha ha ha!

Hey cool!
I just made a loaf of bread a couple of days ago, that I'd never tried before.
It's a recipe for "English muffin bread"
Very simple recipe, and very good, if you like English muffins.
I made it in a loaf, but am thinking about trying the same recipe for individual muffins soon.
The taste and texture is very similar.

I make my English Muffins in an old Sunbeam electric skillet that we got as a wedding shower gift over 45 years ago. Got some rings off eBay and bake them for 6-1/2 minutes per side at 300F. Amazingly delicious. I freeze them after cooling, and they keep in the freezer for at least a month...not that they would last that long! 😂😂

Joe, that ALL looks absolutely AMAZING!   I would weigh 450 if I had all that to eat.  Thanks for sharing all that baked goodness with us.  I would really like to munch down on some of those sourdough pretzels.

One of our daughters made scones this morning and we had homemade plum jelly and butter on them.  Very tasty!

I also roasted a couple chickens on the grill the other day.  It was the first time is tried to use those beer can stands.  Not sure that it really did anything to improve the taste or moisture in the chicken but they were still tasty.  I made the rub from nearly everything in the kitchen but the sink!  Ha ha ha!

I make my English Muffins in an old Sunbeam electric skillet that we got as a wedding shower gift over 45 years ago. Got some rings off eBay and bake them for 6-1/2 minutes per side at 300F. Amazingly delicious. I freeze them after cooling, and they keep in the freezer for at least a month...not that they would last that long! 😂😂


Whadaya wanna bet I have the same Sunbeam electric skillet and the same rings? Hahahah! :D

Yep!  Walmart plates.  We gotta buy the cheap stuff because it get broken so easily around here with 8 kids in the house.

Oh, stop blaming the kids,  Brett. We all know you regularly used them for target practice ;)
That might be fun! 

My oldest daughter is a cake decorator at Baskin-Robins (ice cream cakes).  She doesn't have her drivers license yet so we have to take her to and from work every day.  They offer samples of their ice cream flavors when customers come in.  We stop in and try a sample or two every once in a while.  They use these little pink plastic spoons (disposable) to give samples with.  I like to keep mine and bring them home to shoot.  The only downside is the clean up.  I still find pink plastic in the yard (or plastic army men parts, balloons, empty casings....) every once in a while. 

That's why one of the reasons that I like to shoot steel targets with pellets...  no clean up and reusable.  Plus I really like the sound of the steel when hit.

bReTt, if you want moist chicken, brine a whole chicken overnight. For chicken pieces, 2-4 hours is alll they need. You'll be amazed at how juicy the chicken remains. I do this when I smoke or charcoal grill chicken.


The scones look good. My brother's peach trees are ripening this week, so I see some canning in the near future...maybe a pie as well.

I haven't made beer can chicken in quite a long, long time. I suppose with the local markets selling rotisserie at under $5, there's really no incentive in me spending a lot more money and time doing it myself. Although, the kids would get a kick out of it.

Its the start of yet another work week. Obviously, I didn't win the Powerball this past weekend :(
My work week routine is getting into the gym around 5:45am, finish at 6:40am, shower at the gym, get into work around 7:15am, have my breakfast, brush teeth, and clock in at 7:30am.

This is my regular breakfast of champion meal: 5 servings of egg-whites, a can of sardines, hot sauce. (I usually also have fresh baby spinach and /or slices of avocado mixed in as well). A couple servings of fresh fruits to finish everything off.

Yogurt and granola this morning.  Maybe a fried egg or two for some sustaining power.  Heading to the ocean for the day. Gonna go on a loooong beach run then play.  Traditionally we stop on the way home and have fish, chips and chowder for dinner.  That is the plan for tonight.  We just have snacks to eat at the beach.  Stuff like peaches, bananas, crackers, chips, trail mix....  things like that.  Bringing our flashlights for the eclipse so we don't get lost on the run.

Wait until you get into your 30s and 40s......it only gets worst :(

That's why about 8 years ago, after a yearly physical indicated that my health was heading into the crapper, I really changed my diet and got into exercising. Lost nearly 40lbs and finally developed a six pack at 40 (I'm 46 now). I don't deprive myself of any food, but I typically allow myself the weekend to indulge in moderation. M-F I go back to eating sensibly.

I absolutely love a good watermelon 🍉.  We have had two good ones in a row.  These have been the seeded ones not the seedless.  The seedless ones we have had for the past couple of years have been junk.  Now the seeded ones are showing up in the stores again.  Like I said, the last two have been really good and they have been seeded.  Still have half of one in the fridge.  Might have to take a chuck in my lunch for tomorrow. 

We had a great day at the beach.  Stopped along the way and saw the eclipse through the natural filter of fog and clouds.  Also looked at it through a welding mask.  We did stop on the way home and eat fish, chips and chowder for dinner.  I am so full at this moment!  😕  Right now I am waiting for everyone else to cycle through showers then I plan on taking one and heading to bed.  Of course mine will be a cold one with 9 others in line before me.  It will feel good anyway since the tops of my feet are sunburned ☀️🔥AND I have a blister on the pad of each of my big toes from the run 🏃 along the beach in bare feet.  OUCH!  😬🤕🤠🌮

The watermelon I cut up last night wasn't super sweet, but a sprinkling of salt really added some good flavoring.

Coffee looks great!

The logistics are...

Get them up
Motivate them
Feed them
Move them

The trick is to get started earlier rather than later.  If I want to be on the road by 8:00am, I tell them to be ready by 7:00am.  That will actually put us out the door at 8:15!!!  Ha ha ha!  The older kids (I say kids but they are 20, 18, 16, 14 and 12) don't need much guidance, just a push in the right direction.  The little kids (10, 8, 5) need a bit more guidance but they are pretty good too.  I am a semi drill sergeant barking out directions with authority to keep them moving.  It doesn't take long to get off track, myself included.  We get stuff laid out the day before so we don't have to think about it when we HAVE to be moving in a direction. 

Even a simple bike ride is a production for us.  We are on a dead end road off of a 50 mile an hour 2 lane highway with literally a 3' shoulder to ride on.  Very dangerous to say the least.  I will not take the kids on the highway either walking or riding so we are basically locked into just our road for walking and riding.  That gets boring fast!  There is a great riding trail just on the other side of the highway from us but no access from our home so we have to load up and drive to the trailhead to ride it.  I finally was able to buy a utility trailer this summer for house stuff and whatever it's needed for.  Now we can load the bikes and ALL go together for a ride.  I am still trying to figure how I can get them all loaded in the trailer and keep them secure.  I have just been too busy to take the time to figure it out and build something for it.

This is our transportation for when everyone is going....

Believe it or not, I've had trouble finding the old-fashioned long-cooking grits around here for the past few years (at least 6 years now)- I can find the "instant", but I'm the same way about rice, oatmeal, and just about any grain I cook. I want the traditional long-cooking stuff- to me, it's better in taste, texture, and all-around quality.
What I have been buying is a product from the Red Mills line of products- yellow polenta- but last week, I actually found some white hominy grits milled by the same company.
Now, grits isn't nearly as much of a southern dish in Texas, as it is in what we call the "deep south". From Louisiana over to the southeastern seaboard, grits are served with breakfast as a rule, and in Texas, it seems you're more likely to get hash browns.
I like grits with a little butter, some cheddar cheese melted in, and a little salt and pepper.

2 fried eggs over-medium, 2 slices buttered toast made from the loaf of English muffin bread I made a few days ago.

And yup! I eat those cage-free, bug-eating libertarian chicken, free bird eggs that I have to pay exorbitant prices for!

If it looks like that you're far from a redneck. Ya gotta stuff it with sourcream, onions and chives, wrap it in bacon and toss it on the grill.

BTW... cilantro don't even qualify as a food item.. What is that and who said it tastes good?

Omagawd- cilantro is one of my staples around here!
It's used for a good many Mexican dishes, and also known as Chinese parsley. I use it often when cooking Chinese, and also put it in Asian salads.
Great herb to have around the kitchen!

I watched a youtube about German style pig knuckles and had to try it. No knuckles at the butcher shop so I had to use a roast. I deboned it and took some of the meat off so I could roll it.

Ya'll remember Ronco's "Set it and Forget it"? I pulled out the old Showtime rotisserie and fired it up. This thing came out as good as it looks. I did scrap off most of that fat layer between the skin and meat to save my arteries.

I did buy the correct eating utensils and still learning how to use chopsticks. For some reason I always end up with soup on my shirt.

We were called to a part out call a couple weeks ago to a building that had multiple units affected.  We showed up and did our troubleshooting and found that the problem was in the customers equipment.  Normally we refer the customer to contact an electrician and have repairs made to their equipment then call us back and we will come back and energize their service. 

The problem was a pretty simple fix and I had found it pretty easy so my partner and I agreed that we would fix it for them and minimize the outage for them since the building was for businesses and not residences.  We got the issue fixed and reenergized the businesses and the customers were sooooo happy.  We saved them time and money.

One of the businesses was an Ethiopian coffee house/restaurant.  The owner insisted that we come in for some Ethiopian coffee and that he give us lunch.  We took him up on the coffee but took a raincheck on the lunch.  The next day we were in the area so we stopped in for lunch (we intended on paying for it).  We picked our meals and they graciously served us and treated us very well.  We had coffe again after our meal.  My partner got some vegetable sampler plate and I picked the fried fish 🐟 that comes with this super simple but very tastey salad 🥗  and a fresh baked loaf of bread 🥖

It was all very good!

Never had Ethiopian food. The one time we tried, we got to the restaurant, only to find out they were on vacation. We'll be trying again at some point.

From looking at the picture it appears that Brett smuggled in a fork.
Now see... I could probably eat that.... unless they sneaked cilantro into it.
While I lived in Conn. I worked for a retailer of railroad salvaged goods. We had 6 stores and I would spend time at each setting up and closing out items as they came and went. I spent lots of time in motel rooms. Many owned by folks from India. You do know what cooked cabbage smells like lofting through the air ducts of a room right? And those people eat some SPICY food. I turned down many more meals than I accepted.

Bill, I have a picture of a burger 🍔, fries 🍟 and a Cheerwine cheery soda for ya but it won't upload for some reason.  It's called a Jimbo, I guess after it's creators name?  Anyway, it's a hand pressed patty, pepper jack cheese, jalapeŮos, lettuce, red onion and a smokey mayo on a kaiser bun.  It is very good!  My favorite burger from that joint.  They serve beer there for those that desire that (I don't drink). 

Dinh, they gave me the fork with my meal but they were instructing my partner to eat his with that pancake thing and his hands.  Tear a piece of the pancake (forgot what it's really called and it doesn't taste like a pancake either) and use that to grab some of the other stuff and put all that in your mouth.  He struggled some with it then asked for a fork!  Ha ha ha!  I plan to take my family there sometime to try it out together. 

I just like to avoid the city these days with all the street people/heroine addicts/filth that it brings so, it may be a while or special circumstances that will put us up here in order to try it together.  We used to love coming into the city but that has changed over the past few years.  The homeless are a real problem here and all that it brings with them......

I like Indian food Bill.  Maybe not all of it since I haven't tried all of it but what I have had has been very tasty. 
Do you like curry?  If so, we have a southern Indian curried chicken recipe if you like?  We dress it up some so it's a mix between Indian and Vietnamese curry.  The addition of some green beans, onions and peppers comes from the Vietnamese side and the actual curry sauce and chicken is from the Indian side.  We put it over rice but it could be done with some potatoes in it or over boiled potatoes if rice isn't liked.  Heck, even some fried potatoes with it over it would be a good twist if that's what you like!  I like fried potatoes with onions, peppers, salt and pepper with some butter in it too.

It was good- needs a little more "zing"- not sure yet what I'll do to improve on that, but it's a good salad.
It reminded me of the "seaweed" salad that one of our local Chinese places has on the menu.

I used a local Cajun seasoning from Nunu's Grocery store. We have a big spice company that makes special blends for most of the Cajun grocery stores, I buy them all because it has their name on it to support the local stores and it's usually better than a commercial blend filled with salt. It's just a little different than Zatarains but with less salt.
It's Targils and you can order from them and they will make any blend that you want and make a custom label or add yours too.
https://targil.com/

I always use Cavenders Greek seasoning, I like the herbs in it. I would also add real garlic or garlic powder but my Mom lives with me and is allergic to it so I'm deprived. Cavenders does have garlic but not enough to bother her and it doesn't smell in the seasoning.

I dressed the veggies before grilling with olive oil and just Cavenders and it's awesome, even raw.

Lizzie that looks good. It reminds me of a salad a friend made with dry cheap ramen noodles from Wally world. I thought he was crazy but it really works to add a crunch. He also had grapes and other things coated with Ranch dressing. Anything is better with Ranch!!!

I've never tried ramen noodles dry- didn't know they were soft enough to eat- hah!

I was married for 30 years to a man from south Louisiana, so I learned to like a LOT of taste in my food. The only thing about the salad tonight that was lacking, was that it needed a little more "punch"- something more from the dressing.
I cook quite a bit of Chinese-type food- and I have a strong preference for the sweet and hot sauces.

I just recently got into Asian food and have been addicted since. I discovered toasted sesame seed oil and made a dipping sauce for lumpia using SSO, Hoisin, Sriracha and chopped scallions. I think I could eat old fan belts with that stuff.

I made the lumpia/spring rolls using ground pork and chicken sausage, graded carrots and cabbage. It came out good and I just bought another pack of wraps to try a new concoction.

I have an aunt who makes phenomenal lumpias, and she uses pork, blue crab, and some sort of Asian mushrooms for the filling.

This ain't your Momma's roller food. I'm telling you, these ole southern women put it on. I could only eat one of them. The other made a nice gift to the little Korean girl who sits in the cube next to me. Her boyfriend just dumped her and headed back to Korean... she needed a bit of cheering up.

Thanks for a great recipe!


Glad you enjoyed it. We've been making it for at least 25 years, and never tire of it when we want to get away from run of the mill salads.


I only had one small job this morning so I put a 5# roasting hen in the crock pot with some celery, carrots and onions. Made a pile of smashed taters (skin on), pan gravy from the drippings and the ubiquitous tomatoe & cuke salad while the garden continues to give up its bounty. We have enough for dinner tomorrow, then the leftover chicken gets turned into chicken salad for Saturday lunch. Cook once, eat thrice!


Tomorrow I'm making free form Italian bread cuz the grandkids are coming in Saturday to spend the night. They love "Grandpa's bread!" I saved the potato water to use in the bread. Makes a lighter crumb.

Yeah...the house smells pretty good when I'm cooking. Tomorrow it will smell like a bakery when the bread gets going. Probably gonna make three loaves. The kids and dinner guests will polish off one loaf, then the oldest daughter gets to take home a loaf since it's her birthday dinner on Sunday. Hopefully we will be able to keep one for our toast and sandwiches...no guarantees. 🙄


The birthday girl requested beef and chicken shish kebops, brown rice pilaf, steamed broccoli and tomato/cuke salad. Going to marinade the meat in Italian salad dressing overnight.

You could always bring her a salad or some kimchi. There are zero calories in kimchi just like my homemade sauerkraut. Here's some with carrots and caraway seeds...

That looks so good! Cookies are my Kryptonite as well especially with an ice cold glass of milk!! I hafta have special ones with gluten free flour which surprisingly are still amazing! My wife's aunt made some the other day and added cream cheese in the recipe to make them creamy as gluten free stuff is usually dry and crumbly...best cookies I've had in a LONG time...took 10 and we're gone in 2 days  ;D

Now THAT is a cool kitchen tool. I have this love for kitchen utensils, and also for tools in general- my woodworking tool collection is better than my husband had. And the reason for that?
He (just as myself) was really funny (not haha- funny) about letting other people use his tools, because he knew they'd be misplaced or otherwise not taken care of, so over the years, I bought my own, and ended up with quite an assortment to choose from- especially for a woman.

Anyway, back to the mixer. I really like that, and had never seen one before. You m ay have just planted the seed of a new obsession. LOL. :D

That is it, exactly!

Back in the day, there was a little Oriental gift shop and grocery store on the west side of fort Worth. At the time, I was living in the area, and used to go there for a few kitchen staples (soy sauce, spices, rice, and other) from time to time, and to browse through their various dishes and trinkets.
The smell of the kimchi was overwhelming. It was the only thing that kept me from spening more time (thus probably more money) in the place.
Nice folks though. Loved going there. About a year ago, I was in the area, and wanted to stop by there, and it's gone out of business now. Sad.....sigh.

I'm actually not a big fan of kimchi. I usually tend to eat it, if it comes with a meal, but I don't ever seek it out. When it comes to Korean food, its Korean bbq short ribs and bi-bim-bap

Snuck out of work early today.  Grabbed some potatorito from Taco Bell for lunch. When I got home, my oldest was home with a friend. She asked to go to a new, unique ice cream place a couple of towns over, called Snowdaes. This place is definitely unique: shavened ice cream.  Heavily Asian influenced in flavoring. A lot of people here
My daughter and her friend got Rocky Roads. I got taro ice cream wuth azuki beans and almond slivers.. Good stuff!

HAHHA I think he meant Timmy Macs "MAC1 Secret Sauce"... not the Mac-n-Dons "2 all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun" kinda sauce.

That plate looks scrumptious, Joe, but I would be fine with just the bread alone ;)

Funny. Back in younger years, we could have company coming for dinner, and I'd almost always make a loaf of bread.
Even if we were having grilled  ribeyes, loaded baked potatoes and a great salad,  it was the bread thst everybody wanted more than anythibg ekse.

"Now THAT is a cool kitchen tool. I have this love for kitchen utensils, and also for tools in general-

Anyway, back to the mixer. I really like that, and had never seen one before. You m ay have just planted the seed of a new obsession. LOL. :D"

Lizzie, we have used a bread machine to mix our bread dough.  We take it out and bake it in the oven and just use the bread machine as a mixer.  It not as cool as the Bosch machine that Joe has and it's larger but you may already have a bread machine OR they can be found at thrift stores and garage sales pretty cheap.  Just an idea for you....

We also have a grinder to grind the wheat berries into flour.  That was not a cheap tool and isn't necessary but does allow us to experiment with different types of flour (wheat) and grinds and adds to the overall satisfaction of being "homemade".

Joe, I had almost the same thing. Broasted chicken, gravy, Mac-n-Cheese Again(it was easy and fast) with tomatoes and cukes. The chicken came from the store, it's cheaper to buy a cooked chicken than a raw one and it's surprisingly good. It's also my go to for chicken noddle soup, too easy.

Yes sir, that is the sriracha sauce or rooster sauce as I call it.  That stuff is the best on teriyaki and PHo 🍲.  It also works well on pizza 🍕. 

Do you have Trader Joe's where you live?  If so, check out their Green Dragon Hot Sauce.  I would describe it as the green version of the rooster sauce.  Very good stuff in my book.

I think I've seen that here. I need to try to make some. I grow super hot peppers for a seed company and I'm left with all the peppers so I make sauce and chow chow. Some of the peppers are too hot to use much of so I have to use bell peppers to tame it.

I also do some fermenting and this year I might do some dehydrated peppers to make a seasoned salt.

My sister lives next door and has been selling jelly for over 25 years. Any flavor pepper jelly you can think of but my favorite is pecan. Pepper jelly is also good to use as a baste for BBQ, it has to be heated and thinned but it's good. She makes killer salsa too, she has customers from NE that pay shipping for 12 jars about every 2 months. They were visiting and bought some from a festival she was at and have been hooked since.

Me and Mama did our penance for the year...we took a 2,4 & 6 year old to Bob Evans after church. All three of them wanted a night at grandma's before school starts for them next week. Three plates of food with one or two bites from each one. Somehow grandma thought this was better idea than me feeding them PB&J and toasted cheese sammies.

No idea if you'd like this version, but when I worked in the local hospital in the late 90's, they used to make chicken salad like I'd never had before.
They used shredded chicken, finely diced red onion, small diced grapes (drained as well as possible of the juice), pecan and/or almond pieces, and mayo (plus salt and pepper to taste).
It was GREAT chicken salad. I always looked forward to the days they'd have it in the cafeteria, and I'd buy it from the salad bar in good quantities, and take it home for the hubs and me to have for the next few days. That's how I still make it to this day.

Chips, dip, veggies, fruit, cake, soda, lemonade, tea, chocolate milk, cake, cake and more cake. 

We had our daughters high school graduation 👨‍🎓 party 🎉 today so it was party type foods.  We had an open house from 1-5 but people were having so much fun I had to kick them out after 8! 

I even introduced a couple friends to my FX.  They both really liked it but the wife REALLY seemed to have fun shooting it.  She was apprehensive at first but when she got the sight picture in the scope and started ringing the spinner, she really lighted up with a smile.  I don't think that they will be airgunners but they had a positive experience with it.

I've had that recipe up North here, but I've always seen it made with walnuts. Having lived in Texas and New Mexico, I understand the whole pecan thingy. 😂


Love my eggs in the morning. On Italian this morning with a slice of American cheese. Got some cantaloupe to dig into as well.

It's a Jimbo.  Mayo, jalapeŮo, red onion, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, pattie on a kaiser bun.  It's supposed to be a smokey mayo but we were nearly out of mayo so I didn't mix any up.

My smokey mayo recipe....

3 heaped tablespoons of mayo
3-4 drops of liquid hickory smoke
3-4 dashes of Tabasco or your favorite pepper sauce.  I like Louisiana brand hot sauce for this.
4-5 shakes of ground black pepper

Mix it up and spread it on.  By itself it's not that great but on a burger it really comes out.  I only use this mix on burgers 🍔.

My brother stopped by with a couple of pails of peaches. In spite of bracing up the heavy branches with 2x4's, there was so much fruit that the three squirrels running around in the branches took down the branch. They have to sit out for a couple of days before to finish ripening. BUT, there were enough ready ripe peaches that I was able to blanch, peel and cut them up so Mama could make a peach cobbler. It's got about ten minutes left in the oven. I don't know if I can wait that long.

Mexican food is my wife and I's favorite. Got plenty of good ones around by us. In fact I made Mexican tonight. My wife coaches JV volleyball at our old school so she doesn't get home until after 630 now. So after my workout I get to cook lol my go to is Mexican. Homemade rice which is a recipe from our Foreman's wife AMAZING. Black beans and ground beef from one of my sister's 4H steers. With some fresh picked cherry tomatoes and jalapenos from our garden. YUM! And of course to counter act the heat fresh milk from our cows ice cold of course.

Mexican at a local chain.  I had the #3.  2 enchiladas, 1 taco, rice and beans, ground beef.  Water to drink.  Chips and salsa before the meal came.
We've recently found a new Mexican place near us, Casablanca, and the food is excellent. Probably the best salsa I've ever had. We'll need to go back there soon.

My sister lives next door and has been selling jelly for over 25 years. Any flavor pepper jelly you can think of but my favorite is pecan. Pepper jelly is also good to use as a baste for BBQ, it has to be heated and thinned but it's good. She makes killer salsa too, she has customers from NE that pay shipping for 12 jars about every 2 months. They were visiting and bought some from a festival she was at and have been hooked since.
Does she have a website to order from?  Heh heh heh, jalapeŮo jelly here we come!  YEAH BABY!

She has a Facebook page but I didn't see her list of all the products she makes.

I've been cooking beef stock all weekend, it was a long process but so worth the effort. I made big batch of Pho broth concentrate, a little Au Jus base and just plain beef stock. I started with roasted bones then simmered then strained and cooled to remove the fat then back on the fire and browned more beef, de glased the pan and added onions and simmered another 6 hours them cooled and started on the different sauces. The freezer is filled with small containers ready to use, I need to do this at least twice a year.

Hey Robert, here's a tip for storing your broth that I use for all of my soups and my homemade marinara...use zippered freezer bags. Fill to the desired amount, allowing for some headspace for growth due to freezing, then freeze the bags on a cookie sheet. They can then be stored flat or on edge, eliminating the wasted airspace around containers. Optimizes freezer space if it's limited like mine.

I do use that method to freeze my smothered okra, collard greens and other garden goodies. I need to find some smaller ziplocks since the stock is concentrated. I did freeze some in ice trays to use when needed.


I know this is all about AG's but we do have to eat what we kill so I think it fits perfect. I don't think the stock will make it there before going bad but thanks for the offer!

Mexican food is my wife and I's favorite. Got plenty of good ones around by us. In fact I made Mexican tonight. My wife coaches JV volleyball at our old school so she doesn't get home until after 630 now. So after my workout I get to cook lol my go to is Mexican. Homemade rice which is a recipe from our Foreman's wife AMAZING. Black beans and ground beef from one of my sister's 4H steers. With some fresh picked cherry tomatoes and jalapenos from our garden. YUM! And of course to counter act the heat fresh milk from our cows ice cold of course.

Plates dirty from the juicy tomatoes my favorite fruit/veggie or whatever you want to consider them ::)
Yeah, and the milk is probably raw with some of the cream still in it.....  YUMMY!  That is the absolute best milk there is.  Well, maybe Wilcox brand chocolate milk but they aren't around anymore.  It tasted just like melted chocolate ice cream.  I'm talking the full fat version with cream added......  oh yeah!  Alpenrose is a good second since Wilcox isn't around.   We have Smith Brithers delivered but their chocolate isn't very good. 

Still doing the Tough Mudder Dillon?  What day are you running on?  It's a pretty easy OCR as far as the obstacles are concerned.  It's just a longer run so endurance is more the focus than strength.

Yeah we are Brett. I believe we're doing it Sunday as I work monday-saturday every week. Good to know about endurance over the strength! Not hitting the weights but doing Tony Hortons 22 Hard Corps more of a body strength and cardio mix. With my job I'm very active as it is and do a lot of things with arm and leg strength and usually am walking 10+ miles a day with some running mixed in those. We ran/walked a half marathon in Nashville earlier this year. Usually no problem and can run 5-6 miles straight but that was a brutal one. Seemed mostly up hill and of course record heat that week so was high 90s with humidity when in April we hadn't even hit 70 over here lol it was real bad and everyone we talked to said it was the hardest they've done.

If you can run a half marathon straight through then you'll do just fine.  There are "breaks" along the way at the obstacles, not all, but some.  The longest wait was 45 minutes at Mt Everest.  Hopefully they have that sorted out so it isn't like that again.  The obstacles are more "fun" oriented with a bit of challenge.  They want to make it so a wide variety of people with different fitness levels can do it and walk away with the satisfaction of completing it.  They have done a good job in my book.  Its definitely a fun day and I wasn't sore the next day(or week) like some of the others that I have done.  I still have a sore elbow from one that I did.  It was much more strength oriented, especially grip strength.  I definitely over prepared for my first Tough Mudder last year in comparison.  It will be a blast!  Hopefully the weather will cooperate.....

Not a big fan of cole slaw on my pulled pork, but the sriracha added some nice additional flavoring.

Now on your chicken burger, my preference would be to add lettuce, tomatoes, onions, bread n butter pickles, and slices of avocado. But I suppose, in a pinch, plain will do  ;)

I mentioned a few pages back, that I normally cook once or twice per week, then eat warmed leftovers and salads until I run out, then I cook something else to last for the next few days.
This is one of my faves, just because it's easy, it re-warms well, it's relatively healthy, and although very simple, it's tasty.

German Skillet Dinner

1 med onion, diced
!-2 pounds ground beef (I use the super-lean)
1/2 cup dry rice
1 1/2 cup water (I add chicken bullion powder for flavor)
1 small head of cabbage, chopped into bite-size pieces
1 can Rotel tomatoes (drained)
2-3 tbsp. butter

Dice the onion and cook on low until starting to caramelize
Add ground beef and cook, stirring occasionally, until done.
Add dry rice and pour the water over this mixture.
Chop the cabbage and make a thick layer of cabbage over other ingredients already in bottom of pot
Drain the Rotel tomatoes and pour them on top of the cabbage.

Place lid over pot and simmer for 30-40 minutes until water is absorbed and rice is done. Stir to mix and it's ready to serve.

There's not really a shortcut to making bread, but I'll bet dollars to donuts that those buns were very "yeasty!" LOL Two tablespoons of yeast would raise the dead, considering I only use 2-1/2 TEASPOONS of yeast for TWICE as much flour!!

The potatoes were so good I think I'll do it for lunch, only I may throw in a chopped hotdog for added fun.

I'm not sure of the actual origin of the recipe, but it sure has common ingredients used in German cuisine.
Much of their food is too salty and fatty for my taste, but I really like this one. Also (I should add), the original recipe calls for plain diced tomatoes. I used rotel the first time, because that's what I had on hand, and I liked the little extra "zing" it added, so I have kept that as part of the recipe.

Jerry-
1-2 pounds ground beef.
I actually use less than a pound, but I'm not a huge carnivore. 1 pound would be more than enough for me, but most men I've known like quite a bit more protein in their diet, so 2 would probably be a good starting point for you.
It IS a simple fix. That's one of the things I like about it!

While Mama picked some peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes (20 🙄), I made us some breakfast for dinner. Bacon, egg & cheeses biscuits with a couple handfuls of grapes. Then I went to work cutting everything up, and we made two freezer bags of mild salsa for the freezer. I used 10 tomatoes for the salsa that we picked yesterday, so we're giving them away and trying to get them in the freezer for winter soups and stews. Still a bunch on the vines for picking for awhile.


I put the salsa in a colander to remove a lot of the juice, then add it to the bags as needed. I ended up with a quart of juice that i drink like V8 juice for the next couple of days.

Somewhere along the way, inhaled a banana and one of them tasty Lidl "energy" bars.  I've been eyeballing a couple other "health" snacks on my desk- keep some handy for days like the today where the phones never stop.

I actually had sort of a "real" lunch today- typically, the only real meal I eat is in the evening.

I had a job interview on the far north edge of Fort Worth, and since I was over there, decided to drive over to what they usually call North Side (or the StockYards)- it's where much of the tourism happens, where Billy Bob's is, and the Coliseum where rodeos and other shows are held. Also still has quite a bit of the old town flavor.

Anyway, I haven't really been to that area much over the past 20 or so years, but there was this little taco "dive" called Taqueria Acapulco, which is a tiny little drive-through place where real tacos can be found.
I drove on over there, at first thinking it may have been closed and/or demolished, as some of the buildings over there are in the process of, now.
To my delight, it was still there, so I drove through and bought a couple of their shredded beef tacos- one on flour and one on corn tortillas. Still the same great tacos I used to have there 20-25 years ago!
That was probably my one single great indulgence from the past 6 months- hah! :D

Pizza delivered tonight.  Michele and April are headed out tonight.  They are going to a ramen 🍜 house to eat so the rest of us get pizza.  And breadsticks.  The pizzas 🍕 coming are a 4 way pizza....  pepperoni, Hawaiian 🌺, Supreme, cheese 🧀.  Maybe I'll splurge and let the kids pick out a soda to drink.

Alright, Dillon! Hope you like it. I absolutely love curry!
Last winter, I found my favorite way to cook squirrel.....curry stew in a pressure cooker. So, good!

Jerry-
1-2 pounds ground beef.
I actually use less than a pound, but I'm not a huge carnivore. 1 pound would be more than enough for me, but most men I've known like quite a bit more protein in their diet, so 2 would probably be a good starting point for you.
It IS a simple fix. That's one of the things I like about it!

Thanks Lizzie. No spices added though?

if you have had much German food, it tends to be a bit bland, with salty and fatty meats tending to make up for that. The germans were historically pretty utilitarian wrt foods, and up in the areas near the North Sea, many were pig farmers. (My maternal grandfather came here from that region in 1910)
They used a lot of salt and smoked for preserving meats, and due to the climate and conditions, grew a lot of cabbage, thus their  diet tended to be dependent on these factors for taste, rather than the more exotic tastes in the Mediterranean and surrounding areas.
That is one of the reasons I use Rotel and add some chicken bullion powder- it adds a little flavor to an otherwise bland German dish. Haha. :D

Reckon we're following each other around here. Betty Lou made mini burgers on the sweet Hawaiian rolls with chedder cheese and the trimmings for lunch. She sure makes it hard to come back to work. At least with an hour I can normally squeeze a 30 min nap in. I live 3 minutes from the plant.
No nap today... UPS showed up just before I got home.
Let me know when you are having that again...  I'll bring the ice cream for milkshakes!  Mini burgers 🍔, why didn't I think of that?  🤔😜

Stayed home today.  Called in a vacation day this morning.  The washing machine was making some seriously terrible sounds and I was planning on taking it apart to repair it.  It's one of the front loaders and it's 12 years old now.  I was never pleased with how it washed the clothes anyway so I made the command decision to buy a new top loader, one that actually uses water  to wash clothes, instead of repairing it! 

Ha ha!  All that to say that I am having left over pizza from last night for lunch today.  Sure is nice to be home . 

Dinh, that curried squirrel looks very tasty. 

Lizzie, those tacos  look amazing too!  We have quite few taco trucks around here but I just can't bring myself to eat at some...  we used to have a really good restaurant that made "real" tacos like yours but it isn't around anymore.  If a place serves tacos with lime on the side, my guess is that it probably going to be good. I prefer all corn  for my tortilla of choice. 

All you folks and your food ... it all sounds great!

Went to my brother's house this afternoon after getting three quart bags of peaches into the freezer, and got another 5 gallon bucket of peaches, along with some pears from his neighbor's tree (he just throws them in the garden!😱😱). Wifey is taking the peaches to a friend's house tonight so she can have some for her freezer.  There are still lots on his trees.


Got home and Mama made weinies & beanies with tomato salad for a quick dinner. Sometimes you just gotta eat like a little kid. 👍Now to get ready for tomorow's squirrel opener here in Ohio. Still have a bunch of peaches ripening on the picnic table, so I'll probably put up more peaches Friday evening, and get some more from his trees on Saturday or Sunday. Only takes five peaches to fill a quart bag. They sure will be good when the snow is on the ground and there's no fresh produce from the yards.

Joe, nice score on the peaches. I need to find a few trees that will grow down here, that and a few pear trees. I have almost every other tree growing.

What bread recipe are you using? The last one I used had too much yeast but it did rise fast. I do have a good recipe for dinner rolls but it takes too long to rise.


Tonight was a goulash dish I made up. Ya'll know I like to eat good right?

I do this with pork chops or chicken.
season and brown the meat in a roasting pan.
add onions and mushrooms and saute a few minutes.
mix a can of cream of celery soup with 1/2 can of water in a bowl, add to pan
dump a drained can of greenbeans and add potatoes.
Season as disired again
bring it to a good boil/simmer and then put it in the oven @ 350 covered for 20 minutes.
Remove the cover and cook for 15 minutes to brown the top and let the sauce reduce. Use your judgement on how thick you want the sauce.

I regret not making bread to sop up that gravy.

For me, it's a soup, salad, and bread kinda night.
(as a single woman, I could pretty much live on this stuff! Hehe)
Already had the salad from putting it together a few days ago.
Added a couple of sliced marzano tomatoes, a couple of sliced strawberries, a few bacon bits, some poppyseed dressing and berry vinaigrette.
Put together another large pot of soup that will last me for 5-7 days. Lean ground beef, large chunks of zucchini, yellow squash, chayote, carrots, green beans, a jalapeno and some cumin for a little Mexican flair, chicken broth, and a little tomato sauce.
Finishing the last of that loaf of English muffin bread I made.

I kept it simple.  Leftover beef nachos and some Twizzlers.  Tossed it back with a Food Lion seltzer water and some rum.  The Missus is having some yogurt and granola.

We were planning on some pork stir-fry, but I had to work late and SWMBO got stuck in traffic.  By the time I headed downstairs, I was done doing anything constructive and I could tell she was spent.

It's an easy, quick, one pan dish that sticks to your ribs. I use Cavenders seasoning and it has a few herbs in it, if I had my way I would put whole cloves of garlic to get that roasted garlic flavor. Pork chops are awesome in this. I've also added whole kernel corn too, it's like a cooked down chunky soup with loads of flavor.

My wife actually made the dressing, which all I know, is that its vinegar based and it was sweet. She just instructed me to mix everything together. She was with our son at his soccer practice.

The dough was a sweet and eggy texture. Kinda like pancake consistency

That cantaloupe we had was almost as sweet as candy.  Our friends brought it over so I didn't get to see the label as to where it was from or what brand.  They said that they bought it from Costco.

The sad truth is I can't stay away from sweets.  Cake, cookies, donuts, pretty much any sweet baked goods are like drugs to me.  When I was little I would get up on Saturday mornings and grab a handful of Chips Ahoy cookies with some milk, wrap up in a blanket, plant in front of the tv  📺 and eat cookies and watch cartoons while mom and dad slept in.  Now I do something similar at night in front of the computer while surfing.  Sugar is a real battle for me.  I do better sometimes and I fall off the wagon too.  Today is a fall off the wagon day.  Good thing I have a fast metabolism and I run and ride a lot.  I threw my bike in the back of the truck and brought it in to work with me.  If I have time I will go for a ride around the city tonight with all my lights flashing for visibility.

This will be my 3rd Donut of the day!
I can give you the name of a good cardiovascular surgeon haha

I usually don't buy donuts, but earlier this week,  I got a pumpkin donut with my coffee.
The sad truth is I can't stay away from sweets.  Cake, cookies, donuts, pretty much any sweet baked goods are like drugs to me.  When I was little I would get up on Saturday mornings and grab a handful of Chips Ahoy cookies with some milk, wrap up in a blanket, plant in front of the tv  📺 and eat cookies and watch cartoons while mom and dad slept in.  Now I do something similar at night in front of the computer while surfing.  Sugar is a real battle for me.  I do better sometimes and I fall off the wagon too.  Today is a fall off the wagon day.  Good thing I have a fast metabolism and I run and ride a lot.  I threw my bike in the back of the truck and brought it in to work with me.  If I have time I will go for a ride around the city tonight with all my lights flashing for visibility.
There are much worst things you can be addicted to.

Now to head to my brother's house to get away from the cackling of these two hens!

Ha ha ha!  RUN! 

That is a beautiful piece of corn.  We like to roast them in the husk around the fire  and slather them with butter, a sprinkle of salt and some pepper.  Definitely a treat to eat.


We no longer need to cook outdoors or use the outhouse since Mama got the job over to the Walmart in town. Now we gots us a used trailer house with indoor plumbing and one of those new fangled stoves with an oven under it. Hope you can get as lucky as we got!

Pulled pork and some ribs.  Another laaaaate day and SWMBO wanted barbecue. Some days I feel like I never really stop working, and sure enough I sit down at the restaurant and the after-hours emergency support line rings.

Cold but good barbecue sure beats no barbecue  😃😄😎🐖

Late breakfast today.... 

3 hard boiled eggs with some salt and pepper.  That didn't satisfy so I grabbed a tomato and diced that up in some large curd cottage cheese and sprinkled that with some black pepper.  That has satisfied my hunger and tastebuds.

After  a busy day, I did a repeat of last night- just a nice salad and large bowl of soup, and a slice of toasted home made bread (made another loaf of the English muffin bread)
I did put some chicken breasts in the crock pot to cook, so that I can make some Lizzie's super secret chicken salad- hah!

(tip for anyone interested: Too cook chicken for use in just about any dish requiring diced or shredded chicken, I take 2-3 breasts and sprinkle some fajita seasoning or equivalent on both sides, place in the bottom of a crock pot, put the lid on, turn it on high, and cook for 2-3 hours. It tenderizes perfectly, and tastes great!)
Good for chicken salad, casseroles, enchiladas (if you add Mex spices), and several other dishes.

Lizzie, I like that seasoning hack!!! I use a taco seasoning pack with a little water to make a marinade for ribs and it's tasty. It's great for camping too, 1 pack spice.

Now on the chicken, it's cheaper to buy a Broasted chicken in a big box store than a raw one and they're pretty good. I usually buy mashed potatoes and green beans too then go get a jar of chicken gravy. Another 1 pot meal on the cheap and the leftovers make a good soup.

I made Saviors smoked sausage poboys with jack Millers BBQ sauce then put them on the George Foreman grill and toasted/smashed them. Lips smacking I'm telling you!!!

The foods posted today, from everybody, looks awesome!

Pretty wet here today, so the family separated and all went to find stuff to do, leaving me alone here to do whatever I want. I decide to tidy up and do a little rearranging of my little section of my unfnished basement, I consider my "Man Cave" area. Very happy how it turned out, especially now that I have my springers and pumers now neatly set on the wall on a tidy rack. PCPs stays in the gun safe with the PBs. Spent the entire day working down there, so I basically just grabbed leftovers for quick eats.

True story:
I come from humble beginnings. My parents were both from small town Oklahoma and married in high school.
I came along about a year and a half later, and then had three younger sisters over the next ten years.
Dad dropped out of high school in tenth grade, and mom went ahead and graduated the spring after they married. Dad wasn't an educated man, but he was very hard-working, and from the time I can remember (age two years) he always worked hard and worked very long hours, for a company (huge company nowadays) who made concrete water pipe and the steel fittings that join them. Mom stayed home and raised the four of us girls.
 
Dad always took his lunch to work in this large dark grey plastic Rubbermaid lunch box, and I still remember it to this day.
On the job site, there was a portable lunch truck that the guys called the paddy wagon, and vendors would sell various foods to the working guys who had not brought a lunch with them, or snacks for later.

Dad never bought his lunch off the paddy wagon, but he would sometimes buy a sweet treat to bring home for his four little girls. Mom and the four of us were his life. Literally. His family was what his time, money, and energy were poured into.

We would get SOOOO excited waiting for Daddy to get home from work, so that we could see what sweet treat surprise he might have brought home for us!
Often, and also my favorite, it was the pink Snowballs. Dark chocolate cake with pink marshmallow and coconut coating.

YUM! Great fun memories!

Thanks Dinh!

The Boss made some potato pancakes, scrambled eggs, and French-bread French toast for brunch, and per usual, it was delicious.  I grilled some bacon, and we are pleasantly full now..  Plus I have some bacon for club sandwiches later this week.

Speaking of memory lane... I finished mowing and Betty Lou said she wanted to run to the store for stuff to make a cheeseball. I grabbed a quick shower and we jumped in the truck. Next thing you know I see the golden arches. My thoughts went back to the days that the golden arches went right thru the building and it was all walk thru windows. No inside dining. Picnic tables outside and the $.05 kiddie ride horse. Hamburgers were $.28 and a happy meal were like $.50. What the heck, we whipped in for a burger. I got 2 Quarter Pounders w/cheese, fries and a Coke. Betty Lou got one QP w/cheese, fries and a drink. Now the QP is the size of a hamburger back then and the meal cost us $18. And it didn't taste near as good as I remember. And to beat all, Betty Lou wouldn't even let me put the ketchup packs under the tire of the car parked next to us when we left. She's such a buzz kill.

That's a great memory, Lizzie.  Thanks for sharing that.

My grandma would watch me when I was little, before and after school.  My grandpa would bring me home a donut, from work, in his lunchbox about once a week.   It was always so exciting when he would come home and tell me to look in his lunchbox after getting home from work. 
It sounds like he may have a box similar to your dad's.  His was the kind that kept a large thermos in the lid that would be revaealed when opened.

Next thing you know I see the golden arches. My thoughts went back to the days that the golden arches went right thru the building and it was all walk thru windows. No inside dining. Picnic tables outside and the $.05 kiddie ride horse. Hamburgers were $.28 and a happy meal were like $.50. What the heck, we whipped in for a burger. I got 2 Quarter Pounders w/cheese, fries and a Coke. Betty Lou got one QP w/cheese, fries and a drink. Now the QP is the size of a hamburger back then and the meal cost us $18. And it didn't taste near as good as I remember. And to beat all, Betty Lou wouldn't even let me put the ketchup packs under the tire of the car parked next to us when we left. She's such a buzz kill.

I can remember back to when I was small enough that I couldn't eat an entire Happy Meal.  I also remember the first time I was able to finish one.  We lived in Alaska and had gone through the drive up window and ordered our food.  I was eating it (Happy Meal, cheeseburger 🍔, fries 🍟, drink and a toy) in the backseat of my parents Impala when I was finally able to eat all of it, except the toy.  😜  I was such a big boy then

Grabbed the .22 SynRod and headed out for some 60 yd. plinking. On the way thru the kitchen I noticed Betty Lou making magic in the form of a cheeseball and stuffed baby porta bella mushrooms.
Live is real good.

Does anyone have a recipe for one of these Cucuzza squash? A friend gave it to me to try before I plant it next year. He said he just sautees it like regular squash.
Did you have to shoot it when he gave it to ya?  Ha ha!  Never heard of one of those before.  I wouldn't mind trying some though.  Curious as to what you come up with.  Maybe some sort of a squash casserole would be my suggestion to try something.

I actually remembered to take a picture of our dinner. Three bones tonight, the. The other three for dinner tomorrow. Yeah, I could eat them all,at one sitting, but then I would be lethargic the rest of the evening.


Heading out now to Headlands State Park (http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/headlandsbeach) for a walk along Lake Erie and to watch the sunset. Maybe stop for an ice cream sundae after the walk.

Looks good Joe, is that peaches-n-Cream corn? I tried to grow corn here but the squirrels and coons wipe them out the night before they're ready to pick so I buy from a local farmer.


Brett, the AG was for reference but I'm surprised nobody asked about that redneck thing on the end.

That's bi-color corn that goes by a variety of names. We've been getting it from the same grocer since late April, and it's been delicious with each and every batch. Eight ears for $2, and been the same price since April. Worth every penny.

I ate there Judy 4th, and drove by there going down the strip YESTERDAY on the way home from our daughter's future in-laws lake house on Morningstar Lane in Saybrook after a cookout. How funny that you share that memory. The place is the same and always have to wait for your order, because it's one of the most popular place on the strip. We go there a couple of time each summer to trip down memory lane. We went there as kids in the 60's,  and always spent a few bucks in the arcade.

Here's their history on their website... http://eddiesgrill.com/index.php/our-history/ (http://eddiesgrill.com/index.php/our-history/)

We went for a walk the entire length of Hadlands beach out to the lighthouse, but no view of the sunset as a storm was coming in from the Northwest. There's an sense of awe watching approaching storms on Lake Erie. Never tire of seeing that living on one of the Great Lakes.

When I was little I would watch the bikers ride by in droves headed for GOTL. In 2010 I bought my Harley in Columbus, Ohio. I took of from Columbus one morning and went south to the Ohio River. From there I headed north and was looking at Lake Erie for the sunset at Lake Shore Park in Ashtabula (my home town). The next day I took that ride that I always watched the bikers take as a kid. I'll have to dig up and send you the pictures from overlooking the lift bridge in Ashtabula and in front of Eddie's. My sister worked at The Cove and managed that lake front motel the in the curve.... forgot the name. I also lived in the second floor apartment right there in the "Y" on the east end of the strip.

You still have time to make Thunder on the Strip, September 9th & 10th. It will be crazy with all the bikes. I can't make it because our son is getting married September 9th.


Here's why there was no visible sunset. We got home just in time to avoid it.

Hahahahahahah!  :D

True story:
I come from humble beginnings. My parents were both from small town Oklahoma and married in high school.
I came along about a year and a half later, and then had three younger sisters over the next ten years.
Dad dropped out of high school in tenth grade, and mom went ahead and graduated the spring after they married. Dad wasn't an educated man, but he was very hard-working, and from the time I can remember (age two years) he always worked hard and worked very long hours, for a company (huge company nowadays) who made concrete water pipe and the steel fittings that join them. Mom stayed home and raised the four of us girls.
 
Dad always took his lunch to work in this large dark grey plastic Rubbermaid lunch box, and I still remember it to this day.
On the job site, there was a portable lunch truck that the guys called the paddy wagon, and vendors would sell various foods to the working guys who had not brought a lunch with them, or snacks for later.

Dad never bought his lunch off the paddy wagon, but he would sometimes buy a sweet treat to bring home for his four little girls. Mom and the four of us were his life. Literally. His family was what his time, money, and energy were poured into.

We would get SOOOO excited waiting for Daddy to get home from work, so that we could see what sweet treat surprise he might have brought home for us!
Often, and also my favorite, it was the pink Snowballs. Dark chocolate cake with pink marshmallow and coconut coating.

YUM! Great fun memories!

Thanks Dinh!

That's a wonderful childhood memory, Lizzie!

She might even have something on her mind... she doesn't always share until she settles what's bothering her until she works it out on her own.... we are a lot alike in that way. She got up last night and got something to eat... that's always a good sign.

This is one that keeps well and is good re-warmed as leftovers, which is one of the reasons I like it so much. It's pretty healthy as well. I normally eat an Asian-style cold cabbage  salad first, then have this over rice.

I bought a wok about 12 years ago that I LOVE. It was made in Japan, and has seasoned pretty nicely over the years- not quite as smooth as I'd like, but I don't have problems with foods sticking to it.

For anyone interested, this is the recipe:
(I modified it a little from the original)

2 cups coarsely diced sweet onion
2 cups coarsely sliced celery
1/2 to 1 pound of thinly sliced beef tenderloin (I usually just use a cheaper cut, or ground beef)
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup beef broth
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 package (or 2 cups) mung bean sprouts
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 small can sliced or diced water chestnuts
1 good-sized bok choy (coarsely chopped greens)
(or I often use swiss chard, if I can't find bok choy)
1 tbsp. corn starch

Chop onions and celery, and stir fry in wok in small amount of peanut oil,  until onions are just starting to barely caramelize, remove from wok
brown the beef over moderate heat, sprinkle with 1 tbsp. sugar and stir-fry, moving around the wok until the sugar is starting to darken and you can smell a slight burning odor. Turn the heat all the way down, and pour the beef broth over meat, stirring well for about a minute. Remove the meat, and leave the broth mixture in the wok.
Place the bean sprouts in the wok, then the water chestnuts, and top with the chard or bok choy greens, then cover with a lid and turn the heat back down. Let cook slowly until the greens are wilting and the bean sprouts start to take on a near-translucent look, then stir them all together.
Move these ingredients to the sides of the wok, forming a "well" in the bottom of the wok, where only the liquid sits. Take a tablespoon of corn starch in a small container, and mix with a couple of tablespoons of water until the starch is dissolved/suspended in the liquid, then add it to the liquid in the wok. Stir with a whisk until mixture thickens and starts to bubble, then add the rest of the ingredients back into the wok (meat, onion, and celery). Stir all together, and serve over rice or  noodles of your choice, add soy sauce or other sauces to taste.

Our son is getting married tomorrow (which just happens to be Mama's birthday 🎂), so I made some bagels for the bridal party. I made plain, coarse sea salt, sesame seed and everything toppings. Dividing them between the bride's room and the groom's room.


It's a Brunch wedding, so they will be at the venue at 7:30 so the gals can get their hair done right there. Also supplying toaster, butter and assorted flavored cream cheese spreads. Got the rehearsal and dinner tonight. Fun, fun, fun!

It was good. Ceremony was at 10:30, followed by the bridal party heading out into the golf course for pictures. While they were gone we had Mamosas and appetizers, then brunch was served at noon. By 3:00 the guests were gone, the cars loaded, and the bride and groom headed off for Niagra Falls. They headed to Toronto this morning and will return home Tuesday and returning to work on Wednesday. Our son has to leave for San Francisco on Sunday for a seven week project. They will take their honeymoon next summer in Europe for two weeks. Until then, they'll stash cash and accumulate airline points so they can upgrade from business class airfare to first class.


Here's their vows and David dancing with his Mama.

I pulled a chuck roast last night to thaw for supper tonight, a few minutes ago I opened it to marinate and had an idea for lunch.
 
My first thought was that Pho broth I made so off I went looking for ingredients in the house and it worked out great. I found fresh rice noodles, broccoli, baby carrots, onions and cilantro. Topped it with Sriracha and Hoisin sauce. I sauteed the veggies first before adding them to the bowl along with thin slices of raw beef and onions. Now I'm stuffed and it came out awesome considering it took about 15 minutes to put together. I'm glad I made all that broth, time consuming but so worth it.

Been busy and the last few days coming down with a cold/flu or something. I've been waking up feeling like a truck ran over me then it starts letting up. My nephew started pre-K and it seems he's always a snot locker spreading that stuff from school around to everyone. I think the kids just keep passing it back and forth to each other, he'll be fine and then catches another bug.

We had a crab boil Sunday with all the sides and it was great with this early cold front we had.

HAHA Lizzie, you're right to a point. It is broth that I made from stock with that awesome Pho flavor. If there's any doubt about me being a Coonass then it has to be the love I have for Asian soups!! I did add some Sriracha to gumbo a few days ago and loved it and then realized that's where it comes from. It's like a kicked up cornichon(pickled mirilton) with a taste of garlic.

For supper it was gonna be chuck roast but then it took a twist into fried rice. The story is too long to get there but it came out great, I should've took a good pic but here's my breakfast.

Burnt Ends from a local barbecue place.  Finally got SWMBO to try it... Her words:  "This is like Meat Candy!"

yup, getting That Much Closer to being able to justify getting a good smoker.  I gave my old one away when we moved from Virginia Beach to Richmond and moved into an apartment.  When we bought this house, the replacement smoker never materialized  ::)

She's already conceded I make the best chicken anywhere, and after teaching her beef such as a Flat Iron is best eaten between med-rare and medium, she is a True Convert to Carnivorous Habits.  Well, now she also knows after cooking it to med-rare, to let it SIT covered in foil a good 5 minutes per 3 CM of thickness.

LOL, every meat TELLS you when it is perfect: the juices rise.  If you pay attention, you can do no wrong!  Works with squirrel, chicken, turkey, piggy, and hoppers, as well as moo-cows.

Title: Re: So....Whatcha Eating?
Post by: anti-squirrel on September 15, 2017, 12:33:34 AM
Dang it, I need some more barbecue.

It's too late, they're closed, and I didn't buy extra.  All the more reasons to get another smoker.  In between marriage#2 and #3, I was the goofball that got up at 1 AM (I went to bed NLT 9 PM) and would sit playing video games on the weekend while I had a pork loin, chicken, or whatever the "on-sale-meats" going low-and-slow at 180 to 225.  A smoked pork loin, home-fries, and asparagus for breakfast is better than a Colorado Omelet for dinner!

Side Note: as I travel the country I sample good barbecue everywhere I go.  Still haven't had any good barbecue in CA.  On the other hand, Joe's Cable Car in SF has the best burger on the planet.  And Adalberto's in San Diego still has the best carne asada burrito I've ever had anywhere, including Mexico.

Best smoked sausage?  Cecil's in Orlando.  Best barbecue chicken?  Big Horn Mountain in Omaha (RIP, they closed!).  Best brisket?  a place that was 3 miles down the road from my own home... dang it, they closed too!   >:(  Santana's in Iowa City (or is it Cedar Rapids?) had darn good brisket.  And there's a hole-in-the-wall in RTP in North Carolina with the most amazing pulled pork- right next to a Comfort Suites- can't remember the name but DANG is it good.  Q Barebcue in Midlothian has some deeee-yumo-licious Burnt Ends- that's what I had tonight.  And earlier this year I ate a nice little joint in Murfreesboro that had some killer ribs.  Almost as good as mine.

Now mind you, the quest never ends, and as barbecue joints are found, maybe the favorites will change.  But one thing is for sure: good barbecue will put a smile on my face just as surely as good Tex-Mex.

Nope, just what it's called. The loaf is shaped like Italian bread and it's thick sliced like Texas toast. It has sesame seed on top and it's real soft. It also makes some awesome French toast. I make my dip from eggs and Betty Lou's French vanilla creamer instead of milk..... shhhhh don't tell her that.

Today we will celebrate our youngest grabdson's 2nd birthday at our daughter's home. Me and Mama made up a fresh veggie tray with dill dip, and I made another dozen bagels that will magically disappear before our eyes when the other guests arrive. Any homemade.bread products I make get eaten in a heartbeat. Our daughter's guests always ask "is your Dad going to bring homemade bread???" It's like a cult following. 😂 They quarter each bagel and "shmear" them with cream cheese.

How about the recipe for this, Rob?

I'll try, I don't have exact measurements but here goes.
 I use Savior's Roux because it's good and easy instead of making a roux and you should be able to find it but if you can't then make a dark roux.

Start with a large enough pot for a gallon of water and bring to a boil then add about 1/3 to 1/4 cup of roux and bring to a boil while stirring so it doesn't stick. Continue boiling the roux and eventually the roux will start bubbling and will want to over flow the pot so stay close and keep stirring to reduce the bubbles. Once it bubbles then it should remain stable and that's when I season the roux with any Cajun seasonings you like. I cook the roux for about 15 minutes and then add chopped onions and cook another 15 minutes. It's important to cook the roux long enough to get that flour taste out and let it build flavor, that's why I add ingredients one at a time to build layers of flavors. At this point of cooking, the roux can be used for gumbo or stew.

For chicken:
add the seasoned raw chicken and broil to a slow boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes
Add chopped up potato chunks about 3/4" x 3/4"
add eggs, if I were using store bought eggs I would just put them in the roux with the chicken to boil but since I use yard eggs I always boil them in a different pot.
Simmer till the potatoes are cooked and serve

For shrimp/crab:
just add shrimp and simmer till you reduce the roux some to let it pick up the shrimp flavor, you can also make a shrimp stock from the shrimp peelings to use instead of all water for the roux. Some people add potatoes and eggs and some make a potato salad to eat as a side. 
My favorite way to eat chicken stew is with some fried chicken. The salty crispy fried chicken is awesome with the gravy. I also do the same with shrimp.

I do Blue crabs the same way. Peel and clean the crabs and keep the yellow fat for the gravy. I usually break off the claws and trim the legs to the first joint from the body. Most stores carry cleaned crabs if you can't find live.
Add the crabs and let cook for about an hour to bring out that crab flavor.
*****Stir gently***** You don't want to break off little pieces of crab shells in your gravy.
This is a slow eating process because you have to peel the crabs while you eat but nothing compares to the sweet Blue crab flavor. I usually get 6-8 crabs and peel them first then put that in my rice and gravy. Another way to cheat is buy crabmeat and add that to the pot.

I'm sure I missed something or made it harder than it needs to be but it's almost like this vid except I cook my roux first and by cooking I mean boiling the flour taste out.

Dinh, next time you eat fried rice add some Mayo when you fix a plate. It's a great addition. I fell in love with fried rice from a place called Shorty's in Rota Spain back in 89. They had a walk around cooler section like butchers use to pick your ingredients, the staff would follow you and just load up what you wanted then straight to the wok. That's when I discovered the creamy texture it gives fried rice. All of the tables had a squirt bottle of Mayo and after watching the locals I had to try it and since then it's like ketchup to fries next to soy and hot sauce on fried rice of course.

I had a Pho relapse again and almost OD'd, it was awesome even though I couldn't get to the store for more ingredients.

I know, it seems so wrong. That's what I thought too but once you try it you'll see why it's popular. I was more afraid of the Mayo being on the table all day than the taste but in other countries you just take the ride and enjoy the experience.

Dihn....calling Dinh....question for Dinh.....oh Diii-nnnhhhhh...

One of the women I work with is Vietnamese, and some of the employees brought food for a group birthday celebration.
This woman brought a Thai dish that she referred to as Larb- apparently aka pork salad. I'd never had it before and I loved it!

I found a recipe online that sounds like it's very similar, except that she used the small rice noodles (cooked) rather than rice itself.
If you're familiar with this dish (or anyone else here is), I'd love to know if this is a pretty close recipe, as far as authenticity goes.

Thai Ground Pork Salad (Larb Mu)

1.1 pound ground pork.
2.1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil.
3.3 tablespoons uncooked jasmine, long-grain, or sticky rice, (or 3 tablespoons store-bought toasted rice powder)
4.1 tablespoon fish sauce.
5.1 to 2 teaspoons chili sauce.
6.1 teaspoon sugar.
7.Juice from 1 small lime.
8.1 shallot, thinly sliced.

I bought the ingredients to make it today, but haven't had the time to do it yet.

Liz, I'm not familiar with this specific dish, although it seems very similar to certain dishes that my family do make.

I also agree with your co-worker, that the thin rice noodles would work better. Combining the meat with shredded lettuce, bean sprouts, fresh herbs basil and cilantro, and chili fish sauce(nuoc mam), would make this a very refreshing, classic Southeast Asian dish.

Some people call papaya "paw paw" but they are totally different. They are not that popular around here, in Northern Ohio, but grow in almost every woods with a creek or ditch nearby. Most folks I know have never tried them and don't even know what they look like. That's OK. More for me!

If you have any of those fillets left over, you can flake them and make poor man's crab cakes. If you flake them properly, it's like lump crab meat. I do this every Lent when I cook for the fish fry at church for six fridays in a row. I get enough leftover baked cod to make cakes for the rest of the year. I use a crab cake seasoning including Old Bay, Panko crumbs, and eggs, then form them into cakes using my hamburger mold. Freeze them on a tray then put them in sandwich bags and large freezer bags. When you thaw them just fry them in a bit of butter to put a crisp on the outside and heat them up. Yummy good!

I finally finished the van then went into BBQ mode, lit up the pit and started making kabobs. I had some help and it turned out great. Bacon wrapped shrimp seasoned with old bay and Cajun seasoning, legs and thighs marinated in mustard and Cajun spice, smothered in Sweet Baby Ray's after it cooked to make that candy coating, Little Smokie's in SBR's, grilled squash, cherry tomatoes and El Cheapo Noodle Roni for a starch.

The best thing about today is that Dam van is done, everything that could be a problem was. The quote for the front wheel bearings was $1100, I did the work and replaced the whole front end for 1K. Brakes, CV axle, struts, hub and bearings. I should be good for a while. Maybe???

I hostsed our Tuesday brother's night. Made a pile of cabbage-n-noodles with caramelized onions, bacon and smoked Slovenian sausages. Youngest brother stopped at Panera and picked up an assortment of pasteries for dessert. My eldest brother (75) spent the evening telling me why I don't need to buy a PCP compressor.

I ate some barbecue Lays potato chips and 2 Lidl "fig newtons", and now I'm polishing off my healthy meal with a delicious glass of tequila.  Nope, not a shot.  Drinking a glass of it.  Oh yeah, baby!

I hostsed our Tuesday brother's night. Made a pile of cabbage-n-noodles with caramelized onions, bacon and smoked Slovenian sausages. Youngest brother stopped at Panera and picked up an assortment of pasteries for dessert. My eldest brother (75) spent the evening telling me why I don't need to buy a PCP compressor.

I typically don't eat yogurt as is,  but rather use it in smoothie. However, I saw the Skyr yogurt, several months ago and was curious about the taste of cloudberry. Nothing too unusual tasting in regards to the cloudberry, but I did enjoy the yogurt itself.

Ah, Icelandic Provisions!  Very good skyr.  I'm a fan of Greek Yogurt, but Icelandic-style is far better.  More robust flavor, extremely high in protein, and very thick.  I normally start my day with that or something with peanut butter as a breakfast heavy on carbs leaves me feeling sluggish.  Our brains requires lots of proteins and fats to function at a peak level, and the amount of data work and troubleshooting I do daily requires my A-game constantly.

Today, I had some cinnamon raisin toast with peanut butter and a cup of skyr, then polished it off with a bottle of hard cider mixed with OJ.

Protein you say? I hit the gym, every morning, before work(5 days/wk), and my usual breakfast is 5 servings of EggBeaters, over a bed of raw baby spinach, topped with a can of sardines.....topped with plenty of hot sauce! Oh yeah, breakfast of champions!  ;)

I should hit the gym, but using my pull-up bar and doing push-ups and some basic isometric exercises help.  And at 48, I got nothing to prove :D   I've had to modify my diet bigtime over the years as my jobs change.  A desk job now means less carbs, more protein and fats to feed my brain.  When I was working construction, 5000 calorie days were normal, and if I dropped below 4600 I lost weight.

Currently eating a roast-beef-and-cheese sandwich with some Salsitas chips and a big deli pickle.

I like that "dish", Rob.....but, I'm not certain I want that after mowing the lawn in high heat  8)

One of my favorite ways to eat Ramen is to crack and mix an egg in with the broth....kinda like egg drop soup, but with the eggs more well cooked.

At 46, I don't hit the gym to pick up chicks. I started this gym regiment, about 8 years ago, when a long over due annual physical indicated that my health was a mess....high blood pressure, microturia, liver function was off....all stuff I've never had before. So, with my very young children as the major motivation, I hit the gym and ate way better. Within a year, I shed nearly 45lb, and all my health issues got back to normal. I had to change my entire wardrobe, going from size large to small and losing 4" off the waist. At my lowest weight of 136lb, I was the weight I was in middle school. I got really into the fitness thing and starting doing endurance races. Nowadays, I'm no longer racing, but hitting the gym is my religion now. I've been holding steady at a weight of well under 150lb....my weight in high school :D

The hard boiled egg is a nice touch!  There is a PHo 🍲 place nearby that has a mixed bowl.  It has squid and a quail egg in it along with some other stuff (is been a long time since Ive been there).

Breakfast for dinner is always tasty.  Sometimes a muffin with orange marmalade, sometimes waffles, home fries, and some form of pig flesh, sometimes a tasty cereal and some yogurt...

And sometimes a Tito's Vodka screwdriver with orange juice.  Because that's how I roll.

Speaking of 'pig flesh,' we made BLT's with Kosher dill pickles, kettle chips and homemade chocolate cookies for dinner.


We have breakfast for dinner frequently. Could be anything from cereal to omelets with hash browns, pancakes, waffles....anything you'd find on the breakfast menu at your local Mom-n-Pop corner restaurant. I remember one time that I had breakfast food for seven meals in a row. Love my breakfast food!

Sorry guys, that’s where I stop.... SPAM.

I was born and raised in Alaska for the first 8 years of my life.  SPAM was one of those common food items that was eaten there, at least by my family.  I could never stand that stuff in any kind of form.  I don’t know how it has even remained to be made!?  I know it ships well and will keep forever but the taste and texture...... 

Sorry, not dissing your tastes for certain foods but SPAMs following is one thing that remains a real mystery to me.

........because of Hawaii. They are the leading consumer of Spam. I don't seek out spam, from a can, but when I lived on Kauai, I did enjoy those Spam-musubis. If it makes you feel any better, and less nauseous, Brett, I haven't had Spam since moving off Kauai, 16 years ago..........but now that we're talking about it, I'm kinda getting a craving for it ;D

I fancy myself a devotee of Spam. My palette is highly refined to where I can appreciate the flavor nuances that permeate this canned meat product with a half life. I feel bad for those lacking this unique gift bestowed upon so few such as myself. <sarcasm off> 😂👍


Stumbled on a 5# chub of 80/20 ground beef yesterday for $6.32, because last date of sale was today. So this morning me and Mama took 3# and made 15 meatloaf burgers for the freezer, then I made a pot of chili with beans with the rest of the meat. That will be dinner tonight with the pan of corn bread I made in a cast iron pan.

Wife-n-I made some Mexican food.  She had some Mahi-Mahi tacos and I had a beef-n-potato burrito.  She oopsied and made the pico de gallo just a tad bit hot for her taste... But for me, it was a little mild.  Still, we cleaned our plates, and rumor has it she's got some chicken marinating.


Though for all I know it could end up being a breakfast-for-dinner evening.  Or maybe even a "FroYo, pretzels, and alcohol" kinda night.

Chocolate protein smoothie for breakfast.

Almond milk, ice, cottage cheese, chocolate protein powder and instant coffee ☕️.  I actually didnít have any instant coffee so I had the bright idea of some fresh ground coffee beans....  donít do it, use instant coffee.   :D

I ran into a celebrity at an Italian restaurant once!  It was Gary Sinise.  I was taking one of our youngest sons to the restroom and he was in there washing his hands.  We made eye contact and I just said that I liked his work as I was entering a stall with my son.  He smiled and said thanks or thank you or something along those lines.  That was at Maggianoís in Costa Mesa, CA

I had 7-11 food and a cookie because the bug-guy came for his bi-monthly check so my normal breakfast routine was amended.  Having a hoarder next door means we spend a little extra making sure don't get her problems.

Plus my bug-guy is an avid shooter.  He's prefers 300 black-out, 338 Lapua, and 50 BMG over my rinky-dink "BB guns"... or at least he did until taking a few shots with my MkII and Varmint.  Never thought a guy used to shooting a M82 would find joy in a pair of simple Chinese PCPs, but surprise!

So yeah, 7-11 food for breakfast.

Had a simple salad on the side which consisted of some chopped romaine and some pico de gallo thrown on top, with dressing added.

We cleaned our garden up today...  nothing growing in there now except for some flowers and those won't last much longer.  We harvested a bunch of pumpkins today and decorated the outside and inside of the house with them.  We also tied up a bunch of corn stalks for decoration too.

What part of Nebraska are you in Mike?  I was stationed at Offutt AFB in Bellevue, NE, just outside of Omaha, in the early 90's.  I kinda feel like I have a connection there since I lived there for a couple years....

The Lidl version of cinnamon toast crunch with some frosted strawberry squares, fancy-pants granola, and Food Lion cheerios.  I dump al the cereal into a  couple Tupperware containers and shake gently to mix it up, then pour a little into each bowl.

About that cold: eat local honey, a teaspoon a day, if you have any allergies.  Gotta start before allergy season, but this works like a champ.  Then if you feel something coming on, gargle with warm saltwater (mild solution, not brine!) and make sure you cough up phlegm.  I've been cold-free for a decade even when half our office was calling in sick.  Just ensuring the back of your tongue and upper throat are relatively mucus-free means less breeding ground for the yuck.  I have a couple co-workers that also swear by Neti Pots (they don't get sick either).

Cilantro is vital for... well... just about everything one would prepare for Mexican/Tex-Mex.

Side note: my wife makes the most amazing pico de gallo; far better than any salsa, and goes amazing on everything we've tried.

Jerry, no intent to butt in to your sardine convo, but if you like canned smoked fish, I think these are great! I can make a meal of kippered herring and crackers.

I just go with the cheapest. So, typically its BumbleBee, Starkist, or New Brunswick....usually $1 a can. I only get the ones packed in water now, but I feel the ones packed in oil taste better.

Although I like the taste of sardines, I mainly eat sardines for the nutritional values. They are high protein, high in omega 3, low in toxins(such as mercury), and a highly sustainable food source. They really are an under-rated super food, and much healthier than most of the popular fish sold in the US (salmon, tuna, swordfish, farmed catfish, farmed tilapia).

I actually avoid the farmed raised fish altogether. These fish are mainly fed cheap food and lose all the nutritional value found in wild specimens. I read a report where they found tilapia, due to their diet of corn, was no healthier than eating beef, in regards to cardiac health. Of course, due to their close containment quarters, farmed fish are also given plenty of antibiotics.

If you've been following this thread, you would know I'm not a health freak, but I highly believe in moderation. I just keep tabs on the amount of "bad" food I consume, not eliminate it.

I tend to agree, and there is another thing which the small canned cold water fish seem to be great for: a source of some of the otherwise hard-to-find trace minerals.
Whenever I am having one of those days when I feel hungry, but nothing seems to satisfy that hunger, I will eat a can of the smoked herring I mentioned in my post to Jerry. (Imo) when the body has vague cravings for food, there is a trace mineral lacking, and the canned fish seem to satisfy that craving for the most part.
Great source of (as you said) the Omega 3's as well.

I had Skyr-type yogurt for lunch with some licorice (Panda brand black licorice) and a banana.  I'm about to go back downstairs and dig around to see if I can find anything else.

In massage school, we learned a lot about nutrition.  The whole healthy body healthy mind proper nutrition thing.  Anyway, bone health is directly related to trace mineral intake, and trace mineral intake is boosted by eating more-natural foods.  IE: stuff that isn't over-processed.  Like Dinh, I try to moderate the bad foods.  Lots of processed foods leave you unfulfilled and craving more.  See?  Craving.  IE: unfulfilled.  Lacking in something.  And yet as anybody who has ever had it, whole milk "fresh squeezed" from the, um, Cow-Tree, is one of the most fulfilling things one can consume.  Purportedly, hyena milk is even more rich and high in fat, but last I checked, milking hyena was a dangerous proposition.

Being a huge fan of jerky and hunter-style dry sausage, those are great supplements when you need salts, protein, and fats... IE: when you are exerting yourself at a high level and sweating profusely.  Carb are good for long endurance, but fats and proteins feed you now.  And I need to go find some.

I had a craving for curry so hunted the cabinets and put one together. Slices of beef rib, curry oil and a premix, pepper paste, onions, garlic, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, coconut cream and rice noodles served with cilantro and green onions. It was pretty good considering using premade curry but I need to find a source for some real curry or make it.

I got a frozen squirrel carcass in the freezer, I shot a few weeks ago, and I'm waiting to cook it in some Thai curry sauce, at some point.

If seaweed is that much, I know that I wonít be eating any.  And I donít need 50 sheets either.  There are too many Asian markets around here to NOT find it less expensive or smaller quantities.  We have Filipino friends that I am sure that I could bum some from or give them the extra sheets, whichever way I go.  I need to get on this project fast otherwise it may just slip my mind.  Life is busy.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I01ZXYE/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=thwopi00-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B00I01ZXYE&linkId=2c756e241e5cd579247dd407b4de3f5f&th=1 (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I01ZXYE/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=thwopi00-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B00I01ZXYE&linkId=2c756e241e5cd579247dd407b4de3f5f&th=1)

Will this work? It comes with a rolling mat too so that makes it a fair price, I think.
https://www.amazon.com/Organic-Premium-Roasted-Seaweed-bamboo/dp/B01IC89JJ4/ref=sr_1_9_s_it?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1507234299&sr=1-9&keywords=nori%2Bsheets&th=1 (https://www.amazon.com/Organic-Premium-Roasted-Seaweed-bamboo/dp/B01IC89JJ4/ref=sr_1_9_s_it?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1507234299&sr=1-9&keywords=nori%2Bsheets&th=1)

These prices are actually pretty good,  since it's for 50 sheets and it includes shipping (for Prime).

Mine cost $1.69 for 8 sheets.

Personally, I prefer the seasoned nori.

Alright, lets do this!

Spam-musubi 101

I couldn't find furukake at the local grocery, so I substituted it with Spanish Sazon seasoning and toasted sesame seed. I use the Spam can as a mold, placiing the nori in first, then rice, soy sauce,  seasoning, Spam, rice, seasoning. Folded the  nori to complete the wrap, use fingers to press down on the musubi, and then turned can upside down to release the musubi.

It came out very  tasty, but the particular nori I bought was way too thick and tough. The musubi kinda came apart every time I bit down on it. Even try sriracha in one and it was very tasty as well.

Back to Spam-musubi 101.

I found everything I needed at the local Asian store today so I just made these for a snack. I watched a few other Youtubes and it seems teriyaki sauce is what most use, I didn't have any so I made up a sauce and I think I like it better with sauce. Pretty much followed the video and added the sauce after frying the spam. My mold skills could be a little better but it's edible.

Dinh, I did like it but it was surprising that the seaweed tasted like dried seafood. It might have been the rice seasoning so you need to tell me. The Nori was cheap at the store so I think all of Amazon is priced too high. It was $3.99 for 10 sheets and roasted, the rice spice was $3.99. I think the rice spice would go good in a few noodle dishes to enhance the seafood flavor.


I wanted to get some dried squid for a dish but man, that stuff is like gold. $14.99 for 1 dead squid, it was big if that makes a different.

It's all a learning thing for me so I'm all in so keep the ideas coming.

Nori does have a seafood taste to it, so I think that sounds about right.

I haven't bought dried squid in ages, so I can't remember their market value, but $15 for 1 sounds super expensive to me.

Steelhead!  I love steelhead.  Did you catch it yourself?
I wish!

In 1999, I did a work assignment in Tillamook, OR for a couple of months. I did a lot of fishing while I was there. I always brought my ultralight,  travel rod/reel combo on these work assignments. The extended-stay hotel I was at was right next to a good sized brook/stream. I caught plenty of rainbow trouts from that brook, and many went into the frying pan. This was definitely fishing country because the hotel had an outdoor fish cleaning area. The area had plenty of bodies of water to fish from, and I took advantage of this bounty. My tackle consisted of my ultralight combo with 4lb test line, and my lure of choice were an all black Mepps spinners. This lure was deadly here on trouts. There was this one spot, I believe it was a lake,  where I hooked up to my 2 largest steelheads. Both were easily over 2ft long.  The first one I was able to work in to about 3 feet from me, but a final trash snap the 4lb line. The second one, came on a different date, played out the same way. Within a couple of feet from me, a final trash broke the line, but the fish was so exhausted from the battle, it didn't swim away. I jumped into the shin-high water and grabbed it by the tail and hauled it onto shore. I was ecstatic to land this monster on such light tackle. I'm guessing it weighed about 20lb or so,  which is way more than I could keep in the hotels mini-fridge. So, I gave the fish to some people fishing nearby. After all,  I had plenty of smaller fish to fry ;)

The Whoppers are intended to distract you from waking up Sleeping Beauty and her Fierce Protector.

I had a couple teaspoons of honey, peanut-butter raisin toast, a banana, some dark chocolate, some peanuts, a cereal bar, some Lidl-branded Cinnamon Toast-Crunch looking cereal, a couple sticks of beef jerky, a warm pretzel with some melted cheese goo, a roast-beef-n-cheddar sandwich, some left-over pizza, and a couple Pop-Tarts.

Thatís a great story!  4lb line, that sure makes for a long fight I bet.  Steelhead is good eating...  probably my favorite, then sockeye salmon, halibut and plain olí cod. 
I was born a raised in Alaska until I was 8.  Of course hunting and fishing was a big deal there.  I remember hooking salmon that weighed nearly as much as I did when I was real young.  I would get one on the line then my dad, uncle or someone would come and take over and reel them in. 
I remember one river where the Everglade type air boats ran taking fisherman up and down river to drop them off to fish.  We had a ride in one once and there were only so many seats to sit in.  I had to straddle a tool box that was bolted on the boat and hold the handle for a wild river ride.  It was a thrill and scary all at the same time.
I donít fish anymore but we take the kids out to let them fish.  Itís combat fishing here on some rivers when the salmon run.  At least it is at some of the places that we go.

Brett, when I was stationed in Bangor on the Kitsap Peninsula, I discovered the joy of Salmon fishing.  Also discovered Dungeness crab and Geoduck Oysters.  I still entertain dreams of moving back to WA, though it would likely best east of the Cascades.

Nowadays I can't eat any seafood (get violently ill) but I have fond memories.  Some of the civilian coworkers would clean out their freezers every year and I'd end up getting a lot of free frozen salmon.  I ended up giving it to my cats on account of getting tired of salmon every night.  FWIW, my wife loves seafood, so we often have "surf and turf" at home.  She eats the seafood, I chow down on some fresh cow-chunks.

Gooseliver wrap for lunch, honey whole wheat bagels for the freezer and Omaha Steaks fillets for dinner. Sadly, the Steaks were chewy, and not up to to the usual Omaha standards. Still, they were flavorful with some Montreal Steak seasoning.

I was volunteered to host a dinner at our house for our department office members. They purchased the food and Betty Lou and I cooked. Altho all Korean, they agreed on an all American backyard BBQ type meal. The Koreans have a tradition to bear gifts when visiting someone's home. These gifts came in the for a nearly a freezer full of steak, ribs, chicken, sausage, soft drinks, potatoes and so much more. We didn't even cook 25% of it. We grilled Ribeye and T-bone and chicken. Betty Lou made her cheesy potatoes and some of the best slaw I've ever had. It was a huge success. Our guests even used knives, forks and spoons. Each took a plate home with them.

Altho all Korean, they agreed on an all American backyard BBQ type meal. The Koreans have a tradition to bear gifts when visiting someone's home. These gifts came in the for a nearly a freezer full of steak, ribs, chicken, sausage, soft drinks, potatoes and so much more. We didn't even cook 25% of it. We grilled Ribeye and T-bone and chicken. Betty Lou made her cheesy potatoes and some of the best slaw I've ever had. It was a huge success. Our guests even used knives, forks and spoons. Each took a plate home with them.
Excellent Bill!  Glad to hear that it was a success.  That plate of food sure does look good.

Both.... there are a boatload of Koreans in this area.... pun intended. We have a Korean BBQ Restaurant just down the road from the plant. The Koreans also have their lunches catered daily from Montgomery, Al which is 44 miles up the road. Our company owns several houses here which are temporary housing for them for the period of their VISAs. We also have an intern program where we bring 1 Korean graduated college student in for each department for a period of one year. Each year we receive 5 new interns. They get the experience and then return to Korea to begin their lives. Some will have jobs waiting and some not. During the upcoming Holiday season the cater in a Thanksgiving meal for all 750 <> employees and you have Korean and American options. I tend not to eat anything I cannot identify. There are still some old school traditions in southern South Korea where they raise and eat canine.... I ain't that guy. I know there are a lot of folks who a re willing to try different foods... I'm just not the experimental type. I'm sure some of it is very good. I really don't get THAT hungry.

IMO NOTHING compares to a 1" ribeye soaked over night in Worcheshire, lemon, garlic and liquid smoke on the grill.

Young squirrels can be acceptable when fried, but I just put them all in the pressure cooker for 30-35minutes.

Definitely. It'll just take a lot longer time.

I'm planning to do my squirrel with cream of mushrooms and fresh asparagus this time. I already picked up the ingredients. Just waiting for some room in the fridge, for the leftovers, since the family won't touch my squirrel cuisine. Lol

We made stuffed chicken breast last night with Acorn Squash cut in half coated with butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Very tasty! We also rinsed the seeds, dried them, put them in a baggy with olive oil and salt to coat them and baked them for 10 minutes. Even better than pumpkin seeds.
Sorry, no pics.

I'd never tried a smoker, perhaps one of these days.

I used to do the beer can chicken on the grill. While it was tasty, for $5 I can go down to the local grocery store, and pick up a tasty rotisserie chicken.....much cheaper and near effortless.

Beautiful kitchen,  Joe!


Thanks! This was the the most important room of the House when I designed the house. We had three kids at home when we built this home, with lots of people in and out...always wanting to be fed! Fortunately, I like to cook, the wife like to bake, and everyone likes to eat, so itís been a great room. In the 25 years weíve been here, Iíve added a wood floor, replaced the counters with granite, replaced the window over the sink, replace the sliding door in the eating area, changed all the doors in the house and painted the cabinets. Itís the most renovated room in the house, and this project is being done because I donít like the earth tone tile after I painted the cabinets. The new tile will be 4Ēx12Ē pearl gray, with matching grout in a narrow joint. Should look nice...I hope! 😂😱😂

Last night it was Cream of Fried Chicken soup, I am not a big fan of chicken breasts especially fried chicken. I have a way of dealing with that. Since the weather has started to cool down it was perfect for this soup.

6 fried chicken breasts boned and pulled apart
2 bags of frozen veggies, usually the california blend
1 brick of cream cheese 8oz
1 brick of cheddar cheese 8oz
2 8oz. cartons of heavy whipping cream
old bay seasoning and old bay garlic and herb, season to taste.

cook veggies till they get tender, don't drain.
add seasoning, chicken, cheeses, and cream to veggies and liquid
simmer on low heat for about an hour, stir regularly, don't let it come to a boil.
Enjoy.

Pressure-cooked squirrel!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3892CYxrffY (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3892CYxrffY)

I don't have the pix of the prep here. Basically, I butcher it, coat it in olive oil, then season it with some spices. (I like Weber's Kickin' Chicken) Then brown it. Then add enough of your choice of broth to cover the meat. Add veggies to your taste. I like potatoes, carrots, celery, garlic and spinach, salt and pepper to taste. Then pressure cook it for 30 minutes.

I was left alone so decided to eat steak, no starch either. You can't leave kids alone to make a balanced meal!! It started with chuck-eye marinated in garlic powder, Tony's and Dales sauce, onions & mushrooms sauteed in the pan juices, roasted red bell pepper(burned the skins then into a ziplock to steam), a dollop of horseradish and feta cheese.

My initial plan was to make a Pho with my pre-made stock/broth but the store didn't have bean sprouts, "dang" them!!!!

The Polynesian was outstanding! Every course (5) contained Seafood of one sort or another... even the salad.
Last night was the Memders meal. After a catamaran cruise we all had a light salad then full blown surf aland turf.
 That's right tender fillet with a darken gravy ans a big grilled over wood Lobster tail!
Breakfast Buffet every day. Today was 4 eggs toast,  smoked salmon two cheeses bacon sausage and Papaya..
Tonight is "authentic" Mexican...not the gourmets restaurant. Cooked and served right here by the locals....

I was on my own for dinner, so I happened to take down a small country pidgeon with the Benji Trail NP2. After dressing it, I left it whole, and rubbed it with some chicken seasoning. Browned it in butter and roasted it up in the oven for about 8min. It was a small but tasty. That and a smoothie was my dinner, since I was still so full from the party. Forgot to grab pics.

So for the last week I've been hunting the stuff to make real tamales and realized today that it's a chore. I watched a bunch of youtubes and took a little something from a few and got it going.

I used Pasilla peppers for the red sauce, ground meat to speed up the process and made a nice sauce to steam them in.

No comments about my 60 year old pot but this is the pasilla sauce  after being fried, Then you can figure out the rest.
 
I did screw up, I used 2.5# of meat and only made 18 tamales. That meat should've made closer to 3 dozen. The pic with the sauce is a combination of Pasilla and tomato spiced up for the steaming liquid, that's all that was left after cooking for an hour. That last pic is my 3rd and last one, these are man sized and I'm stuffed and happy with the results. After doing all this I will never complain about the price of tamales again!!!

Title: Re: So....Whatcha Eating?
Post by: Radrob on November 09, 2017, 11:46:57 AM
They tasted awesome, just like a tamale should. I think it's the Pasilla dried pepper that makes the difference.

Gumbo tonight with chicken, sausage, smoked turkey wings, okra and gizzards served with potato salad and mirlitons. It came out awesome if I do say so myself.

As for Arby's.. the last time my debit card was compromised was Arby's. The time before that was Wendys. I didn't incur any losses but my bank had to issue new cards.
Also, Betty Lou changed lunch up on me.
I did get the BLT but, it was on pumpernickel/rye swirl toast and instead of the rest of the plate she make home made potato soup. I ain't complaining. I actually love the fact that she spends her days watching the Food Channel.

I decided the first meal would be my doctored-up red beans and rice. Mama likes  cannelli beans, so I threw them in at the end just to heat them up. Also added 1/2#of smoked sausage and made a batch of sweet cornbread. Plenty left for lunch and dinner tomorrow, as Mama is going out with a friend after work.

Latkes with shredded carrots, pan fried in butter and topped with sour cream. Saw the carrot idea on a cooking show this afternoon. The chef actually added shredded turnips, beets and onion. SWMBO is not that adventurous, so I stopped at the carrots. Happy wife...🙄 I didnít push it after the red beans and rice the other day, which went over poorly.

Joe, you've inspired me to make bread so I bought a box of Cafe Du Monde's Beignet mix and they came out great. This is too easy for a quick desert.

Yesterday, my wife and I had a few hours to ourselves, do we went and tried out a new entery we've heard about: Friendly Red's Tavern. We'd decided to share a Caesar salad, some appetizers and do a few cocktails. For appetizers we had crab cakes, chicken tenders,  potato skins and meatballs. My wife had a special fall sangria made with moonshine. I had a traditional mule and a mixer made with Jack Daniels honey.  Food was very well made and fresh. Drinks were very tasty. Looks like we'll definitely be coming back.

Dinner started cooking around 3pm. Low and slow, in the oven, for these pork ribbies. Finished them off with Baby Rays bbq sauce.

My oldest daughter will be turning 14 on Thanksgiving day, so today she celebrated with besties from her dance team. The cake was a purple velvet with butter cream frosting. 

Between the ribs and the cake,  tonight's dinner was another fantastic meal for this weekend. It was a busy day for me,  so it sure hit the spot!

Way to go, Rob. Now, if you just look online you can get the recipe for these and not have to buy the box mix with the preservatives. There are copy cat recipes online for most foods that you can get in restaurants and their counterparts on store shelves. Hereís one to try...

Busy day in the kitchen today. Made a batch of rye sandwich thins along with a full size loaf and two mini loaves. Had one of the thins at lunch...ham & Swiss on rye with mayo! Mmmmm...


Also made 5# of the "make ahead" mashed potatoes for tomorrow's Thanksgiving dinner at my twin brother's home.



I have a loaf of white sandwich bread as well,as some hot dog and hamburger rolls for the freezer. Iíll post them later, along with a video on how theyíre made with enriched dough.

Anyhow.....
Betty Lou and I packed up, hitched the trailer and headed south to my Sister's for a bit of Holiday gathering and a lot of packing up the garage/shop that my BIL left when he passed and my Sister gifted to me.
Our original plan was to take the turkey I received from work and Betty Lou was going to cook while I clean out and loaded up the shop. At the last minute we decided that we could take my Sister and Niece out for dinner freeing Betty Lou to help me with the loading. Turned out that my niece had used her discount and bought a bunch of fixins. Couldn't let that go to waste. So, we went and bough a ham and Betty Lou commenced to cookin. I commenced to cleaning out the shop.
However.. this is a "Whatcha Eatin" thread so Keeping on topic..
Betty Lou is a superstar in the kitchen.. she wouldn't let anyone in there. Even Rambo stood at the threshold drooling. The menu read...
Bone in glazed ham.
Mashed taters n gravy.
Sweet taters.
Stuffing.
Corn.
Green beans.
Baked beans.
Pasta Salad.
Dinner rolls.
Sweet Tater Pie.
Pumpkin Pie.
And of course, ice cold milk.
We did the food line and sat down to an awesome meal. Even Rambo got his own plate.
Had a great visit with my Sister and Niece and I could only hope that all my GTA Brothers and Sisters had just as good or better Holiday.

We're heading over to my MIL tomorrow to have the kids help her with the Christmas decorations. We have no plans to do our house this weekend,  but I'm thinking Sunday may be a good day to pick up our Christmas tree. Well play it my ear,  and see how things go this weekend.

Yep, think I'll venture down into the new shop and fire up a batch. Tis the Season you know. Nothing like watching a 3 gallon pot come to a boil. The room fills with smells of Grandma's Dutch Apple Pie on Sunday afternoon. I'll break out a P-17 and do some off hand indoor plinking while I conjure up the spirits.....

Our Popeye's just needs to stop.

We had to make a tobacco/grocery run last night to Troy. We got home late so it was everyone for themselves. Betty went for ham n cheese on home made bread. I went for the town house crackers, pepperoni, and extra sharp cheddar with a side of cottage cheese and a hunk of home made bread. Rambo had the sampler of all the above.

Two of the young Korean girls from work want to come hang out with Betty Lou and I. One speaks a little English and the other... not so much. So I ask.. what would you serve them?
No Tater.... not kimchi...
We're gonna hit them with 3/4 lb hamburgers on the grill and French fries. OD them on red meat.... that's how we roll. Then shoot some guns... keep in mind... guns are illegal in Korea. Cops don't even have guns. Finally we'll go for some heavy drinking... Koreans are known for drinking.... if you call 17% Soju heavy.... but we don't do anything 17% around here.
I told them that they are welcome to stay... no drinking and driving. One of them asked me if they would be able to attend church on Sunday. I said "Yes, you may need to."

My wife and 12yo daughter went to a gymnastic meet in Rhode Island today. So, it was me and our other 2 children, and each of their friends for dinner. We all agreed pizza was the way to go. My 14yo daughter and get friends wanted just bacon, and the boys and I went for the Suppa's Sizzler special(buffalo chicken,  bacon,  topped with ranch sauce). For the desert I downed 2 pumpkin spiced Hostess Twinkies

Yesterday turned out pretty good. The two Korean girls showed up around 2ish. I was in the shop organizing some of the tools and stuff that I got from my Sister and Betty Lou was up in the house cleaning and cooking. We all hung out in the shop and learned a lot about each other's cultures in an informal setting. One has been in country for nearly a year the other, just 3 months. English is a mandatory language to learn in Korean schools so they were relatively easy to talk to. At 23 and 24 years old, they were interested in guys. They asked a lot of questions regarding the goods and evils of young American men.
Dinner went really well. Grilled burgers, fries and pasta salad. They brought Rambo a Christmas stocking of doggie treats. They also brought a case of beer, some Korean pears and..... wait for it....
Kimchi dumplings... They are still in the fridge. Betty Lou said she smelled it and wished she hadn't.
We ate, watched the Georgia Tech vs. Auburn game and they left, each with a loaf of Betty Lou's zucchini bread and a qt. of my Apple Pie adult beverage.
We never even got to shooting guns although they amazed on our collection of air guns. "Mr. Bill, you have soooo many guns"!!!

The whole family slept in this morning. I actually woke up around 4:45. So,  I went to fill up the pellet stove,  and eventually fell back asleep. The wife and I finally woke at around 9:30, and I went to make breakfast for the crew. We had 5 yellow potatoes, so I figured hash browns were in order. Scrambled eggs and cinnamon raisin toasts rounded out the meal. I also had a slice of last night's buffalo chicken pizza.

One of the oak trees, in my backyard,  has 2 large branch that keeps growing further over into my lawn with every passing year. So,  I decided today was pruning day. Once down, I got my 10yo son to help me cut it into fire wood size,  for our fire pit, next fall season. I also felt it was time for him to try the chain saw. He enjoyed it.
While we were hard at work on the pruning, my wife prepared French onion soup and melted ham and cheese on sweet rolls for dinner. My MIL joined us for dinner,  and made her famous balsamic dressing green salad and chocolate mint walnut brownies.

It's a Louisiana thing. It's just pork seasoned heavy and smoked to cure. It's almost like a seasoning because it has so much flavor. It's like a big piece of jerky but better.
You can make it at home.

The first full day off I have had in about a month....having a light lunch of chunky veggie soup.

This is one I keep on hand pretty often, because it's easy to make and lasts well in the fridge.

I've been working on refining it a little, to what I like in a simple soup. Easy to make, healthy, low cal, and can be modified easily.

The current recipe is
1 chayote squash
2 large carrots, sliced into large chunks
2 medium size red or white potatoes
2 decent size zucchini
1/2 large onion (coarsely chopped)
1-2 cups cut fresh green beans
celery if desired (I personally prefer without, and think celery is better suited to chicken soups)
1 cup tomato juice
5 cups chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp cumin
1 finely diced jalapeno pepper
ground beef or a diced roast beef, in the amount desired
(typically 1/2-1 pound for me)

I cut the veggies into large pieces and brown slightly on a griddle with small amt oil and fajita seasoning. After those are browned, I place them into a large pot with the broth and spices in it. I reserve the onion and the zucchini, because they cook pretty quickly, and I don't like them to be mushy.

Essentially:
Place broth in pot, and add spices
Add browned potatoes, carrot chunks, chayote squash chunks, green beans, and the cooked beef.
Bring to simmer and let it cook for 10-15 minutes, then I add the onion and zucchini and put the lid on top. Bring to a boil, turn the heat off, and let is sit for 20-30 minutes to soften the zucchini.
(Any veggies which soften quickly with heat, I keep out of the pot until the final stage)

This recipe makes around a gallon of soup.

Busy afternoon in the kitchen today. Made beef stew for Monday and Tuesday dinner, and canned 2 quarts plus 9 pints of marinara for Christmas dinner and thereafter. I usually freeze my sauce, but out of freezer space with all the Christmas cookies and "deals" on meat lately. Tonight we'll finish the meatloaf, taters and corn for dinner.

You've never heard of this?

Very simple. Elbow macaroni, ground beef, tomato sauce,  some diced veggies and herbs. After everything is done sauteeing, my wife fills it into a casserole dish,  cover it with cheese,  and bake until cheese bubbles.

There's plenty of recipes on the net.

Most gyro places around here have it. I like it better than lamb for flavor and because it doesn't leave a taste in your mouth for two days.

We spend hpurs at a local jewelery bazaar and so tomorrow I will roast the oven stuffer, it will be better as the herbs will absorb in.

We were so late tonight I made many pounds of broccoli rabe poached with garlic dressed with Evoo. A quick cup of Pasta Lenticia, (zuppa), then the wife chose Chix sausages with peppers whilste I feasted on Chicken Cutlet in Lemon and Mustard sauce with a generous splash of white wine and home grown thyme plus some sweet marjoram and a kiss of nutmeg..... a tad lemony but with the mustard it works well. Kinda like a Meuneir sauce, but less mustardy.

When Mr Farmer and Mr Rancher do their jobs, my job is easy. Three cheers for the American Farmer, and Farmers World Wide!!!

Speaking of oven stuffer, that's what the Mrs. made tonight....... with plenty of rosemary!  She was going to make mash potatoes, but she got too tired. I would of made it for her,  but I was tied up with some maintenance stuff.

My chicken always looks like it rolled in the dirt I use so much herb. Plus a few table spoons of WW in the cavity, I cook them upside down for first half of time, spinning it so all sides cook even, then flip it and do the same. The herbs all get roasted off, but tasteee. Then the rack and drips and a few extra necks all add up to serious chix soup. Then you make the little meatballs, add beaten egg swirlie and spinach for Italian Wedding Soup.

When I donate that to the food pantry by me , any one who gets it comes back and asks for more..... the little meatballs alone.. I just brought them homemade turkey soup with veggies and finocchio  and maybe next week I bring them Lentil. I don't do it often, cuz I have kids, and well, they get first dibs. But with the house being pretty empty as of late I managed to help others. But now term is ending and #1 son will be back and winter is returning; o home made pizza and soups are back.


Time for lunch Dirty aggs for breakfast and Kippered Snacks with horseradish cream cheese and thin onion a splash of lemon juice. Not Italian more like German and on Rye Bread , Ach, du lieber Gott in Himmel, it is very yummy and I really don't like/eat fish......

Yes, those you mentioned and actual peppermint syrup, caramel syrup, eggnog, and chocolate sprinkles.  My mom added some eggnog to the hot chocolate so I tried it.  That was pretty good, that is if you like eggnog to begin with. I just added enough of the eggnog to the hot chocolate like it was a creamer in coffee, maybe slightly more.  It was surprising how powerful the eggnog flavor comes through with such a small amount.

Today was shopping day so out we went.  Ran to 4 different places with the last being Costco.  It was lunchtime so we brought one of the combo pizzas home.  Those are a great deal.  $10 for a hot yummy pizza.  It had been awhile since we had had a pizza from there so it was extra good.  Then I sat down to surf for a few minutes before I head out to work on some projects with the boys.  I grabbed half a glass of eggnog and a square of fudge and here I am.  Ha ha!

Tonight Mrs. Peterson is making Lizzieís veggie soup that she shared with us.  Thanks Lizzie!!!

Try Kipper Snacks smoked fish in a can. To me it is the fish version of bacon. I love bacon, I love kippers but don't like fish in general.

I think I pay $2.00 a can and use two in a sandwich. English , I am told, fry them with onions and a side of fried spuds or bubble'n'squeek.

 NOW... if you can find something called "Blind Robbins" you are in Heaven. (Smoked Herring). Think fish jerky.
I used to keep them in an old Glass Peanut-Butter jar with the screw on lid... Once opened, the whole family knew it.

Only see them at one butcher shop now. Might stop by there tomorrow. ;)

that's what kipper snacks are sans le liquid so not dried, smoked herring. I think you can find them where Scandanavians and Russian shop. And Jewish people from those areas as well.

2 places I dreaded working, the Old Vita Herring factory (near Brooklyn Navy Yard) and a big Cheese imported who only imported Italian grating cheeses and provolone. Either place would send me to store for Tums. I would walk in smell it and immediately like Pavlov's dogs, begin to salivate.  Like with in 20 seconds.

Eventually The herring place stunk out and became an incredible stone furniture showroom warehouse, manufacturing plant.  We hung temps to see by and worker bees came in and ripped out the smoking stalls.  I will keep an eye for the fish jerky if you like. I know I have seen it just can't remember where. I am sure it is not inexpensive though. But neither is Pecorino Romano cheap is 9.00 expensive is 15.00 a pound. Parmigiano Reggiano  has the name recognition, but 100% sheep is the way to go, on pasta and most Southern Eyetalian dishes.

Tonight was homemade Italian Wedding soup with little meatballs and homade Pain de Mie , a riff on Julia Child's recipe made with buttermilk. I did not do the slide on lid so it was a muffin top. I am going to perfect that recipe this winter as my kid will be home to help eat it. I do not mind sharing soup with our church food pantry, but bread, not so much.  I drove my dad nuts with it back in the 70's.

But with soups another fine table bread is Focaccio di Umbria basically a nice pizza dough with onions and rosemary kneaded in (and a nice jolt of evoo). Toasted with butter it is one of my favorites to have with dirty eggs over easy.  But the Pain de Mie toasted and buttered is exceptional with the eggs as well.

I did not get fat drink beer I got fat by severe inactivity and the ability to cook, part of me wishes I had 90 %  less taste buds.

ah well tomorrow is left overs, which if they were good on first day usually are just as good  second time around. Who turns down Turkey Day leftovers.

I poach the meatballs in the soup 30 at a time, they go under temp drops, returns to  a boil and they float for about 4-5 mins.  Spinach is a nice change and frozen works ok, if fresh isn't around. If you can get it try Pecorino Romano in the meatballs. For my family it would be 1/3 to 1/2 cup grated Pecorino to 2 # meat, my wife would add more, plus our bread crumbs are heavily seasoned to start with, and fresh garlic and flat leaf parsley carry it home.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pecorino_Romano

I like the baking of meatballs I had to make sheet trays full at a Pizzeria I worked at, then they into the oven way way easier then frying 5 8 pounds at a clip. Sausage and peppers is great in the oven as well.  Way way easier, no muss no fuss no mess!!!!  And you have never done it put in some cut up potato in with it and sauce it well. Red Pepper flakes are at your discretion on your plate, but adding 1-2 hot sausages to the mix improves the sauce.


MMMM the kid is coming home for Christmas o Sat. what an excuse, to make sauce..

The highs and lows of this thread appear to be measured by the amount of wrinkling of my nose when I read a post. High wrinkling being bad and low wrinkling being good. These last few posts are cause for alarm to me... I may never be able to straighten my face again. I'm sure there are acquired tastes but, these seem to be out of my budget.
Alright, alright. For you delicate types, I had prime rib for lunch yesterday. Hospital served annual Christmas meal to employees. The meal is typically edible but lack luster, but this year......they nailed it! All the food were excellent! Prime rib was red, tender, and juicy.

I forgot to add that I had an Italian Beef (with jardiniŤre) for lunch. Does that help?



So, how was it?

I doubt if the kipper herrings smells any "better" lol

I was good. I've had them (sardines) before though.

Food related side note on the beef sandwich: I went to the drive thru at a local Buona Beef http://buona.com/restaurant-menu/ (http://buona.com/restaurant-menu/) and had my dog in the passenger seat. The young girl at the window said "What a cute dog!" and came back with a clear cup filled with whip cream for the dog.  :o   REALLY?!?! I know she meant well, but....

We gotta watch Rambo the Rescue Dog... If someone were to offer him whip cream he would certainly have a milk mustache and beard.

My running theory is that, we, the employees, have always been served leftovers from the patients' menu  ;D

Seriously though, my hospital makes and serves pretty decent food. Patients often compliments on the tastiness of the food served.

Speaking of Philly........also getting back to making Bill squeamish. One time when I was in the "Little Italy" section of Philly, I found this tiny, little lunch eatery, and figured I NEED to try what I spotted on the menu: Italian tripe on a hoagie. O......M.....G!!!! It was so freaking good! Getting back to that place is on my bucket list

HR and accounting put on a big buffet style spread for all office department members. A mix of American and Korean foods. And believe it or not, no Kimchee. There were other things I couldn't identify so I abstained from them. It was all you can carry back to your desk. I loaded 2 foam cafeteria style platters and wrapped them to bring home. Also the Koreans celebrate a 100 day birthday of their children along with the yearly birthdays. It's traditional to pass out Korean rice birthday cake. I found a hunk on my desk. Turns out from one of the Korean maintenance guys. Quite an odd mix of food with Korean and American. Something about creamed corn next to seaweed wrapped sushi that just don't look right on the same plate.
BTW... those Koreans like their spicy food.... WOW !!!

Celebrated Christmas with the wifeís family this afternoon. No formal meal like years past, but enough appetizers to choke a good size Clydesdale! My DIL thought it would be a good idea for her and me to make monkey bread with a brioche dough. (Her and our son drove in from Columbus last night and stayed with us.) Sooooo, at 0700 I started the dough, and they rolled out about 0830 when the dough was ready to be rolled into too many little balls. It came out very good, but the brioche is rich enough to plaque up the arteries of the whole family.

Just had gotlunch with toast.  Very good! Considerably less pungent than my canned sardines. I'll definitely be buying more of these in the future, but I'm going to stick to my sardines a majority of the time, since my sardines are 19 cents cheaper and doesn't have preservatives.

I LOVE Kipper Snacks... and Sardines.
 NOW... if you can find something called "Blind Robbins" you are in Heaven. (Smoked Herring). Think fish jerky.
I used to keep them in an old Glass Peanut-Butter jar with the screw on lid... Once opened, the whole family knew it.

Only see them at one butcher shop now. Might stop by there tomorrow. ;)

The wife and I, added some baby spinach to our bowls.....the kids didn't! It was good! I'll be making this easy dish again, but next time I'll be adding lemon and asparagus......and bacon!

Never really liked cheddar, too bitter, I would opt for either another slice or a slice of cherry pie on top.  In a pinch a scoop of vanilla icecream or a very small slice of NYC cheese cake.

Made this Sunday night Cracked open for breakfast . Pain de Mie,  a la Julia Child, instead of milk I used butter milk. Great with "dirty eggs" over easy and bacon. mmmmm ahh tasty.  Makes really nice French Toast as well. I have the pan cover so sometimes I make a standard Pullman loaf, a rectangle.

On a good day I get a local merchant to put it in his bread slicer, then, ever slice is perfect. He had never seen a rectangular loaf and was quite impressed.

My kid took the pics so hopefully they go through, if not I will have to try again

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3meGhJzSsU&itct=CBAQpDAYACITCM-p_orbltgCFU6PwQodg_cOzjIHcmVsYXRlZEiDy-S02tvri1w%3D&gl=US&client=mv-google&hl=en&app=desktop (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3meGhJzSsU&itct=CBAQpDAYACITCM-p_orbltgCFU6PwQodg_cOzjIHcmVsYXRlZEiDy-S02tvri1w%3D&gl=US&client=mv-google&hl=en&app=desktop)

We like this so much mom made it twice a year , in flush years 3 times. The young woman actually said what I realized as a kid, this is expensive to make, it was a treat at once a year a god send at twice, and triple blessed when she could afford to do it 3 times in a year. And no gifting except to very very few people. To eat this you had to visit us, NO ROADIES!! Except in my lunch box.

If you go into an Italian Pork Store around NYC you may be lucky enough to find one that makes this and sells it, by the slice by the pound. That is, if you live in a big city. Down in Louisiana they have lotsa Eyetalians and you may find it there. Up  north places like Chicago, Boston, NYC Philly all have enough of us to maybe have a place to score a slice.

Good luck if you make one make it well and you will need to make it 2-3 times a year.

Our pies are made in standard 8-9 inch pie tins. There is some red pepper in it, but more is available to those who need it. Hot sauce adds an unwanted sour to it, go flakes if heat is needed, that is what I do. And give it 20 seconds in the microwave. This pie was left out never went bad, actually it never lasted long enough.

Ciao

Cornbread stuffed chicken sounds great!

Speaking of smoked fish, my Russian co-worker gave me a can sardines from his side of the world. Sprats is bristling sardines. Haven't tried yet, but looking forward to it.

Made well it is very balanced, it does not come off as an omelet. My family makes it differently, I would get you the recipe , but like the movie line, then I would have to kill you. A quiche tastes eggy, this does not neither does artichoke pie, on the edge, but still not quite frittata.  If you live in a place with a big enough Italian population try the pork stores. On Long Island Dortoni's on Hempstead Turnpike makes a version, very eggy I loved it my Sis did not. They put Mortadella in theirs.  I never eat Mortadella but it quite nice in their eggy pie! The best meatballs I ever ate, were made with veneson, mortadells beef and pork. My local Italian restaurant made them, but, they were not legal. In NY you can not serve wild game unless it is from a certified game farm. Unfortunately he closed and became a Japanese place. I miss his house made cannoli even more. They were better then all the bakeries around.  Now sushi world ick!

Happy eating!

Made our bi-weekly run to the big city yesterday. Bettly Lou was in search of an elusive jar of Litehouse Slaw Dressing. Passing by the bakery we noticed the baker stocking the shelf. A golden glow appeared from one particular loaf. Pumpernickel and Rye swirl. Next stop was the deli for some freshly sliced pastrami and corned beef and a pound of baby swiss. Thousand Island was conveniently located next to the slaw dressing and just an aisle over from the sour kraut.
The sweetness of the cole slaw complimented the Ruben (in our favorite form) grilled in the Panini grill. Plenty left to revisit today.

Sautee a small chopped onion in olive oil for 5 minutes.
Add cut potatoes and cook for 5 minutes to flavor them with the onion flavored oil, most people use red potatoes because they hold together better but I used russets so it would cook faster.
add 2 cans of greenbeans and the liquid
2 cups of chicken stock or water and 1 bouillon cube
salt and pepper to taste and set heat to a high simmer
add diced smoked sausage and cook till most of the liquid is gone, should be about 15 minutes.
Taste, adjust seasonings and serve
You can use any smoked meat in here and it'll be good. Bacon, smoked turkey necks/wings, sausage or tasso.

Hi Dihn,
Does your wife use cold cuts or does she use other stuff, for the meats.  Most of the ones I have ever seen were close in how they are made, my mom's was different enough that I can blind fold pick it out. Plus our crust is a hard, hot water/fat crust like on a Welsh Pastie, (pastie rhymes with nasty). If you make them self contained pie is one serving you could wrap in a napkin and carry to work in a pocket. It is not quite a coffin crust pie, (eat the contents toss the crust).


This gent helped me understand things I did/do not know about pie..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUGjxi6SHHU (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUGjxi6SHHU)


I have been to colonial Williamsburg more times then I can remember, with and without the kids. This Gent does a fine interpretation of cooking in "dem days".  Some of the foods I would not poke with a stick, others look intriguing. The Parmesan Cheeese Ice cream is where I draw a line, well that and Syllabub.  Neither is a taste appearing in my mouth anytime soon.

Give his video's a look over, he does some great stuff. He made me understand savory's are just very thick stew in pajamas, my family's savories have lots of eggs and cheeses and the finished product is moist, not wet. But in old thymes it was a way to bring food with you, as much as anything, no plastic wrap!

Hi Dihn,

She'd actually never made pizzagaina. Her mother and 2 aunts typically makes them, and bring to Easter dinner. They would use chunks of cold cuts, bought from an Italian specialty market.

My friend if my Dad had seen that video  when they opened he would have gone there in a blink.

I do not like fish, I am not nearly Sicilian enough, but those crab cakes and the shrimp (which I do like), I might even brave the red fish!  I think I may have gained 5 pounds jest looking at the video. I do not do Bivalves, but my family would go insane over those things!!!!!!!!


The LA department of tourism should link to that clip, seriously good eats. A couple of crab cakes and a few shrimp, I might not EVER make it to the Steak!!!

Thanks for the compliments of the food here. We do eat good and just think, that's how the poor people eat. You have to learn to cook what you can catch and make the best of it.

Tacos and enchiladas tonight, I need a break from the normal food we eat before the holidays start. I used the green enchilada sauce and it's a little different but good.

Verde sauce is the best.  Go green!

We like to take a pork loin and roast it.  Slice it up and add the verde sauce over it with some fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime.  Throw some refried beans and tortillas on the side and itís feast time.

This is the verde sauce that I like the best.  Itís readily available in the groceries around here.

Sorry guys/gals but, I think one of the worse things I ever tasted is cilantro. I may just be me but, that stuff leaves such a nasty after taste that I will even ask the server at the Mexican restaurant what they have on the menu that does not include it and that's what I order. I've sat with Betty Lou and watch a few of her cooking shows. The chef would just get my mouth all watering and junk and then it happens... they add cilantro....

I get tired of making the same old lasagne every time I go to any dinner where Italian is featured.
I will take a standard salad with dressing, but Italian wedding soup would be a fun addition!

It's way back here https://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=131255.1060 (https://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=131255.1060)

I went Christmas shopping yesterday and Santa bought himself a new toy!!! ;D ;D

I'm gonna break it in tonight or break it if the fettuccine doesn't come out right, JJ I got some learning to do so if Ya'll have some pasta recipes/techniques I would appreciate it.

I used 2 cups flour to 2 eggs and a little water per the internet and it looks good so far. BUT if that fails I have some in the cabinet.

Rob, I'm thinking some seafood fra diavalo would be awesome with those homemade pasta.

Brett, I think both you and your wife are pretty amazing people. As well as my parents: Immigrants who brought over and raised 7, educated and successful kids.

Dinner tonight is leftover chicken and pasta with roasted asparagus. Chased it down with a bowl of mint chocolate cookie ice cream.

Brett, you won the lottery with your Queen, that's a hardcore commitment. I wish you're family all the success!!!


Back to noodles!!!

I fooled around and fell in love! These things are awesome compared to store bought leather.

It took a while to get them rolled out but I went too thin so next time it should be quicker. MAN, that dough stretches way out there.

Shrimp and smoked sausage fettuccine.

Thanks guys, thatís t where I have my life invested...  in those people.  That is why I do the things I do.  Iím not perfect but I try.  I have good people to work with so it makes it more enjoyable and rewarding.

Tonight was fettuccine alfredo with chicken and garlic toast on the side.  My 12 yo daughter took over making it from mom so we got to sit and sip tea and talk while dinner was made.  She shredded the chicken...  I like that so much better than chunked or sliced.  I will request that from now on.  There were carrot sticks and sliced raw garnet sweet potatoes 🍠 on the side too.  Good stuff!  It really hit the spot tonight.  Now I get to look forward to the next 5 days off.  Yeah baby!  In setting the alarm for early and getting up and enjoying coffee and quiet time... no commute.   :D 8)

Good for you Brett.. congrats.
I'm starting into my second week of winter vacation. The most rewarding part of it for me is not looking at the clock. When I'm in "work mode" I'll look at the time 100 or more times a day. During the past week I may have glanced at a clock maybe 3 times each day.
Scrambled eggs with mushrooms, onions and green peppers topped with baby swiss, sausage patties and waffles are on the morning's menu. A couple cups of extra strong coffee and ice cold milk.
5 way chili is planned for dinner.

.....and topped with plenty of fresh cilantro when served ;)

We have a 7.75 pound ribeye roast in the oven at this very moment.  I have the onions and sausage cut up to make Robertís smothered green beans to go with it and a side salad.  I had the meat sitting out with a rub I made on it and just that smelled so good.  I preheated the oven and set it in.  Within a couple minutes the smell was changing into a more heavenly aroma as the meat, fat and spices started to heat up.  I went outside for some pellet gun fun and came back in later.....  oh man!  The house smells sooooo good. 

Now Iím warming up with some Christmas music and tea whilst I surf GTA.  Iím thinking an eggnog latte might be in order here soon.  As soon as I finish my tea anyway.

Nope, I mean I like the guy and all... I just don't trust his choice of edible ingredients.
