Mrs Knyquol, Mr wife makes real cornbread using  just self rising cornmeal mixed with sweet milk or butter milk or water.

Your choice of grease for the cast iron pan.
Put in the oven , bake at 400* to 500* until done to suit you.

That is all.

We eat a lot of cornbread , some  very thin, (mostly crust) ,  some  as thick as 3", depending what we are eating with the cornbread.
Some times we like the crust ALMOST burned, some times just very light brown.
Sometimes I like a very thin , hot piece of cornbread sliced with a little butter , ( now I use healthy butter  ;D )

Judy, your sauce and meatballs look absolutely delicious!        Please post your recipe.  Thank you Texas gardener .
 :) I will post it under the recipe section  too. :)  I don't measure anything haha- But I put just enough olive oil in my iron pot to cover the bottom , heat, add some chopped celery and onions and  a lesser amount of  bell pepper. I get it to the somewhat tender state and add a  small dollop of minced garlic.. (lastly so it won't burn)  Stir it around for a bit and then  add a good sprinkle of  oregano  stir more.( some folks like fennel too)   When all looks sort of softened, I add the equivalent of 3 cans of diced tomatoes  (depends on the size pot though. more sauce is good but that is all mine will hold) . and salt to taste. A bit of sugar works good too to soften the bite and smooth things out. pepper too. I add about a small can of tomato paste to the pot and gently simmer till it reduces to a thicker sauce .
To make the meat balls,  I just add some Italian bread crumbs moistened with a tad of milk( or plain homemade ones with some salt and oregano mixed in) to the ground beef.I used 2 Tbs in my meatballs-I think it was about a lb of meat)  I brown them in another skillet and drain.. Add to the  thickening sauce and continue to simmer gently. Now, I add some  mushrooms and black olives about 30 minutes before it is finished..It is better the next day because the flavors blend so well.  judy

          Rick

Mr Rick, I like VERY cold Diet Pepsi ok for supper unless  I  drink a "real" sugar soft drink or tea (which I REALLY like),  then I don't like Diet Pepsi at all  , so  therefore I usually stay with the Diet Pepsi .
The cherry ice cream is a cherry vanilla  "diet"  ice cream & I only eat a very small amount.
I like the red cherries in the vanilla ice cream & it kills the urge for some "dessert". ;D

I picked a load of fresh squash this morning and will make a squash casserole with wheat rolls, zipper cream peas, okra and iced tea. I am presently making some chocolate chip cookies for desert.

98% fat free, so good for my heart! Taste like wild game and it is also even cheaper than beef too here :) Win win IMO - and there are millions of them down here so it is a very sustainable meat/protein source. My kids (14 and 10 years old are both vegetarians and frond on me when I cook meat...). They both became vegetarian at schools following a teacher showing kids about abattoirs and such. I used to be a Uni lecturer but never ever tried to convert my students in any way - not impressed/happy with this teacher...My kids used to eat fish/meat and now they only eat eggs and that's all re proteins.

no worries vince.  i know a lot of 'former vegetarians'.  they are young.  there is a good chance they will go back to meat.   

luckily they have a daddy that can grow them lots of delicious fruits and veg so they are well fed vegetarians  :)

I then smothered some okra with bacon, smoked venison sausage, diced creole tomato, vidalia onion, and balsamic vinegar. For an appetizer I ate my first ear of corn.  I also made some strawberry and blueberry jams.

I've been craving a homemade pecan pie, I think I see that in the very near future. I found a recipe a few years ago and have been using it since.

1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups corn syrup ( 1/2 dark and 1/2 light)
4 eggs
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups pecans, coarsely broken
1 unbaked deep dish pie shell

In saucepan boil sugar and corn syrup together for 2 to 3 minutes; set aside to cool slightly.
In large bowl beat eggs lightly and very slowly pour the syrup mixture into the eggs, stirring constantly.
Stir in butter, vanilla, and pecans and pour into crust.
Bake in a 350°F oven for about 45 to 60 minutes or until set.

tonight i am making chili.  i am looking forward to when i can use my own tomatoes instead of canned ones.  :)

This morning I trimmed up a couple of small chuck roast and browned them. After that I put the pieces in the slow cooker with onions and celery. I added a package of our carrots from earlier in the year. We will have some of our new potatoes mashed, zipper cream peas with okra, and our sliced tomatoes.

i love eggplant parm wade-o!  that looks golden delicious!   i have eggplant in, but now i might have to go buy one after seeing that....

i made the chili tonight and it turned out pretty good.  i used the canned tomatoes that had diced mild jalapeno in them this time. it had a little kick, but was not too spicy.  we had it with some shredded cheddar on top.  :) 

my hub is working 2nd shift tonight, so he won't be home for dinner.  i think my older daughter wants to make the pork chops i picked up for her yesterday, so the little one and i might have fish sticks.  i have not had them in awhile and it will be an easy meal i can just throw in the oven.  i pulled a couple of little cukes out of the garden last night on my way in from the store...so will prob just have the fish sticks with a salad.

who knows...i could change my mind  :)

This was my Maw-Maw's recipe. It is delicious. It does take a while to cook down. Don't be in a hurry. It freezes well. I vacuum pack the extra. I will be making another batch in a few weeks and will take pictures of the process.

Eggplant Casserole

4lg eggplants diced
1lb ground beef
1lb ground pork
1lb Owens Hot sausage
2lg onions diced
2lg bell peppers diced
1 can Rotel
2T minced garlic
1c Italian bread crumbs
2T parsley

Cook in non cast iron pot over medium heat cook all meats till red color is gone DO NOT BROWN.
Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT bread crumbs and cook over medium heat.
When veg begins to wilt add 2 cups of water or chicken stock.
Continue to simmer until eggplant is soft and breaking down.
Add bread crumbs to tighten the dressing. Dressing should be wet not soupy or dry.
Next you can put in a baking dish or used as a stuffing.
For stuffed peppers blanch peppers for a minute or 2 in boiling water. Stuff and top with Parmesan  cheese and bread crumbs then bake @ 350 for 20 minutes.

hi saute.  thanks for the recipe.  i don't eat pork.  do you think if i used all beef what type of spices are in the sausage?  so i get the flavor without the pork.  any info would help!  i am looking forward to the pics on how you make it.

dinner tonight was meatloaf.  i also made a pack of those knorr noodles with sauce where you just add the milk and a pat of butter.  it was spinach and reg noodles in a parm sauce.  they were pretty good.  i sauteed some of the zucchini, green beans and onions from my garden til they were carmelized.  just put salt and pepper on them.  the onions made everything pretty sweet and delicious! 

still waiting on tomatoes til i can have MY first tomato sandwich of the season  :(

Most breakfast sausage has sage in it that gives it that distinct flavor. You cannot taste the sage in the finished dish. When I make it I usually add a couple of extra eggplants to the recipe. I love the taste of eggplant.  I have made it with venison and it was really good too.

i think we will also cut up the tomato i pulled today.  my little one has been giving it glances all afternoon.  hub and i will try it and then she will eat the bulk of it.  she is really enjoying the new types of tomatoes as they count as her 'new food' for the day and they are something she already loves.  lol.

Maggie your dish looks like a winner for some mighty fine healthy eating but today Jewel & I pulled the plug on healthy. We went to town set ourselves down side by side at Braum's ice cream place & ordered the biggest & fanciest banana split they made with two spoons. Made us feel like teen agers again, so that was healthy I suppose.

  I decided to make my favorite sandwiches tonight.

Hot Sausage with scrambled egg on toasted sprouted wheat whole grain bread, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise.  It is by far my favorite on almost any bread.  I also made a salad with Sweet 100 tomatoes and Black Krim tomatoes.

hey crazyhorse...can you ask your wife how many times she kneads her biscuits?  mine always turn out crap.  maybe she can get me some good advice. 

yesterday i tried the oven roasted tomato recipe that was on here as a link somewhere.  i sprayed my pan with cooking spray.  then i cut the little core out of 6 or 7 big tomatoes.  i set them in the glass baking dish with some salt/pepper/oreg/basil and some of my chopped onions from the garden.  i cooked them for an hour on 350 and they got brown and gushy.  then i stirred them up and left them in the oven on 250 for another couple of hours.  it thickened up alot and we had it over pasta last night.  it was very sweet (i think it was the onions) and had an amazing tomato taste.  i sprinkled some shredded parm over it and that really topped it off.   i might do some more today and freeze it since it turned out so good.

we will have the leftovers tonight with a nice salad with more of my garden tomatoes.  :)

Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: crazyhorse on July 06, 2016, 02:43:03 AM
Mrs Chip, she puts the ingredients in a bowl , starts adding milk and "kneads"  with one hand as  she adds milk and they are of the consistency needed.

She can make a pan of biscuits in a short time and have them in the oven.

We eat at home most of the time and over the years  she has had a lot of practice.   ;D ;D

I'm sure your biscuits are delicious.

Thank you for all the good posts you put up .
Please keep it up,  I enjoy them

Post by: Daniel Grant on July 06, 2016, 10:18:06 AM
Woodchip,
Try Southern Biscuit Complete Biscuit Mix. If you follow the directions you cannot go wrong. They will be fluffy and light. The trick is to not mix too much as this tends to make them tough. A hint/tip: You can make the butter milk by adding a tablespoon of vinegar to a cup of milk.

hi daniel.  thanks for the suggestion.  i will look for it next shopping trip.

last night we had the chili i made.  i cooked the tomatoes with garden onion, peppers, misc spices.  once it was pretty cooked down i put it through the food processor to break up the skin and smooth everything out.  i put in some meat, chili beans and dark kidney beans.  i let it simmer until it thickened up a bit and it turned out pretty good.  we had it for dinner and then i divided it up and froze most of it.  the rest i put in a bowl in the fridge.  it should be even better the second time.

tonight we had hoagies.  they are on sale at our local store for 4.99 for a foot long sub. 2 meals worth for 5 bucks is a good deal.  :)
the store uses boars head cold cuts and makes their own hoagie rolls.  i added some of my garden tomato and it was delicious!  i will have the other half tomorrow for lunch.  hub works tomorrow evening, so i will have the left over chili for dinner.

oh, and diet coke and chocolate peanut butter ice cream  :)

back in the 50s sometimes Jewel would make a couple of egg salad sandwiches I would pick her up & off to the drive in--go to the concession stand & get a couple of root beer floats--sometimes I would go to sleep during the movie. Yesterday we had braised pork chops , pea salad, cream gravy, later we made coke floats &  started watching a movie called The Astronaut Farmer and we both went to sleep.

hub's aunt dropped off another bag of cherry tomatoes yesterday.  i left a quart sized baggie in the fridge for the little one to snack on and cooked down the rest with some spices.  i cooled it and put it in the fridge in a ziploc container.  hub is on nights again tomorrow, so little one and i will probably have the last bag of cheese ravioli with that sauce tomorrow night.

last night was a bit of whatever we could find in the fridge.  i have to go grocery shopping today, so trying to use up what we have in there to make room.

hub had the left over pizza from the night before.  i reheated it on some foil in the oven so the crust didn't get rubbery. 
our little one had a yogurt, some cherry tomatoes and a couple of chicken nuggets i nuked from the freezer.
i had some of the weird tomato 'impossible pie' i had made the day before for our lunch. 

(i had 2 quart sized ziplock bags of cherry tomatoes to use up.  i put them in a pot with some chopped onion, red bell pepper, the leftover taco meat i found in the fridge and salt/pepper.  i boiled them down and then put them in the fridge.  the next day i put that in a bowl with 1 egg, 3/4 cup bisquick.  i mixed it up and baked it in a 9x9 pan for about 45 minutes until the center was firm.  it was very tomato-y and had the consistency of a quiche.)

Threw a bunch of sweet cherry tomatoes and a small green pepper along with a spicy bannana pepper in the blender. Decided instead of drinking it I would simmer it down some and poach a couple eggs in it. Looks like a horror scene but dang!! It was good! Best part was everything came off my land. A first for me.

i kinda improvised tonight, but it turned out good.  i had gotten some thin cut steak on sale at the store.  they sort of looked like someone took a london broil and cut it into very thin slices across the entire thing.  they were big slices, but thin.

i cooked a couple of those off in a bit of water in the bottom of a big pan until they were just done.  i made some cornbread stuffing and then put a big spoonful into one end of the steak and rolled them up.   i set one on each plate and then poured some brown gravy over them.  had them with some peas and green grapes on the side.

Rabbitproof,

My neighbor lady next door called and wanted us to come for dinner so we brought our supper over and she had some grass fed bison shush kabobs made up with tons of peppers,mushrooms and zucchini. We fired up their grill and cooked those. We had one of those old fashioned suppers where everyone brings something. I don't know how you could have had a better supper but if I don't blow up tonight I'll check back in here tomorrow. If I don't you'll know I went out on a full stomach ;D ;D

hub is working tonight so we just had a 'whatever is around' sort of meal.  little one had a hot dog, some shredded cheddar cheese, a few tomatoes and a cup of yogurt.   i had a piece of the leftover steak cold on some bread with mayo, onion, lettuce and a slice of pepperjack cheese.

tomorrow night i am going to try making eggplant meatballs.  i roasted the eggplant already and will make them into meatballs tomorrow .  my daughter will be home for the rest of the week and she wanted to have pasta so these will be a good addition to the meal.

Yes , home grown is what I was raised on.
It has been several years since we had home grown beef.
We would let them get around 6 to 700 lbs. & feed them out.

hamburgers on the grill sounds delish.  i have a couple of bags of charcoal in a tub in the well house.  i got them on 'end of summer' sale and figured they would be handy to have in case we get an ice storm over the winter and need to cook out.  i might have to use one of them though since we have not had hamburgers on the grill in a good bit.  it is cool enough this weekend for low bugs and not to roast to death being out there to watch the grill. 

thanks for the idea!  hub will be excited!  will have to go get some hot dogs for the kiddo tho.

Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: Rabbitproof on October 23, 2016, 11:13:44 AM
Daniel Grant.....It contains mayo, mustard ,cider vinegar, and sugar for the dressing. Then 1 grated cabbage, chopped onion, and slivered carrots for the ingredients. Hard to say how much of each I put in the dressing----I go a lot by taste. I would guess maybe 8 or 9 HEAPING TBS of mayo, 4 heaping TBS of mustard, 2 overflowing TBS of cider vinegar, and 2 TBS of sugar and mix well til the sugar dissolves. Then I taste it. If it is too vinegary, I add sugar. Sometimes I add more mustard, as my husband likes a lot of that----but usually he says it is perfect. It will keep a long time in the fridge made from scratch like this---I have eaten it many a time after 6 days and might push it to 7 if needed. The vinegar, sugar, mustard, onion all are good anti bacterials. I buy a medium to slightly large cabbage .If the cabbage is small, there might be too much dressing and will be too creamy, so add accordingly. I grate my cabbage with an attachment on my food processor which make larger slivers---I -like that better than the real skinny slivers of cabbage. I take my potato peeler to sliver off thin slices of carrots as opposed to trying to grate it---works well. Great as a side dish----excellent on burgers or with barbeque.

I made some bread tonight and it came out good but I had my doubts. I used a fast and easy recipe for dinner rolls and when I mixed it the dough was really heavy and tough so I broke out the spray bottle and wet it down then kneaded again and again till I thought it was right. The recipe I followed must have been for 20 people because it called for 6 cups of flour but I made it work. I made a French/Italian bread loaf and a few other things I just threw together just testing how it would come out. I had so much dough left over I made cinnamon rolls too. The house smells amazing right now. I'm not adding the frosting to cut down on the sugar but I'm sure they'll taste good once they're cooled. The rolls taste great with a little butter. I should've made a few score marks across the bread to dress them up some. I see sandwiches tomorrow for lunch.

Home made mushroom soup with nice French crusty bread.

I added a tea spoon of roux at the very start when cooking the onions. Smells great, I can't wait to taste it. I will add some chopped parsley and chives at the very end before serving it.

We added a little bit of roux to a home made pumpkin soup last week end and we were surprised at the extra flavor the roux provided to the soup.  Great stuff!

Next soup to try with some roux will be a home made onion soup.

that is the nice part of cooking a big pot of something mr. donald...leftovers are even better!

crazyhorse, i have to admire that you have been doing very well on the healthy meals.  good job!

we went for dinner last night to a mexican restaurant.  a bunch of the family went together to celebrate hub's cousin's hub's 50th bday.  he loves mexican and he got to choose.  i had 2 grilled chicken tacos served on a tortilla with mixed veg, onions and some sort of spicy cheese.   it was good.  hub and i split an order of churros for dessert.  they had some sort of carmel in the middle.  very rich.  a nice treat though.  it came with vanilla ice cream, but the little one totally ate that right out from under us.  lol.

i had made a veg soup sort of thing the night before last as a 'use up my veg/leftovers' meal plan. i had a little bit of spaghetti sauce in a jar so i filled it the rest of the way with water and used that as a base. i put baby carrots, onions from the freezer, some of the little green peppers i got off the plant in the bte bed, my last eggplant cut up in cubes, some leftover corn and peas i had in the fridge from dinners and salt/pepper/garlic powder/black pepper.  i let it cook down until the carrots got soft then turned off the heat. when it cooled i put it in the fridge. i knew it needed time to meld together.  i had some last night for dinner and it turned out delish.  had it with a slice of bread and butter (to sop up the good stuff at the bottom).

I cooked it for dinner last night. It took up almost the entire oven rack.  I put onion crunchies on half for me and the little one and cut some fresh spinach from the container on the porch for hub's side.  It turned out delish.   The best part is I will put the leftovers on a cookie tray today and make them for lunch.  :)   2 meals for 3.50 is a win!

she gave me some good pointers and let me poke the dough during the different stages so i would know how it should feel.  the ones she made came out very tender and light as air. 

i am gonna give it a try wednesday night and make some for us to have on turkey day.  if they turn out dry i can always use them to make the stuffing..lol.

Just put melted butter in the bottom of a pan, mix some stuff together and put in the pan, and run a knife through before cooking to separate the biscuits into squares. They said it was delicious. Went back to find and could not----will keep looking or maybe someone will post again on facebook. If so will try it and if it is good, will post it .

here we go...trying again.

i am sorry to report the biscuits were only a mild success.  i did get them to rise a bit and got the layers this time, but they did not rise that much and were tough.  i am going to adjust my oven temp, change flour brands and try again while i have buttermilk left.  i will keep you posted.

tonight for dinner is clean out the fridge night.  i will make mac and cheese with the cheddar that is left over in the fridge.  i will also add the leftover mushrooms, peas and meatloaf i have in there.  i will cut some fresh spinach from the planter on the porch and add that too.  we have some green grapes to finish up, so we will have those on the side.

we are having stew tonight, so i am going to try my hand at the biscuit thing again.  i went out and got some white lily self rising flour.  it was the most recommended and supposedly will give me a super tender biscuit.

i also watched a few more biscuit making videos and will try my best.  i will let ya know tomorrow how they turn out.  if they actually do turn out i will take a pic.  :)

my aunt sent me a spice packet for some sort of german goulash.  you have to add beef cubes and saurkraut and the packet makes some sort of sauce.  i am feeling adventuresome and might make that for dinner tomorrow night.

hub worked til supper time, so we just had what we call 'help yourself' night.  i made the little one a chicken nugget freezer meal, i had the leftover pastie and my older daughter made herself some pasta with ground hot sausage meat in it. 

i did make homemade peanut butter fudge yesterday.  i watched a few videos and learned several good hints on how to not get grainy fudge.  it worked!  we had a very small square (like the size of a sugar cube...it was so rich!) last night.  it turned out pretty well.  i wrapped some up for the little one's teachers this morning.  i also gave some to the fedex guy today.  :)   we had another little square tonight and the rest has been tightly wrapped with cling wrap, put in a tupperware container and put in the freezer until christmas.

Hi Michelle, they were stuffed with kangaroo mince, onion, garlic, italian herbs and chili. Tasted great. Roo meat is very lean, 98% fat free. Very heart friendly type of meat. It tastes gamey too.

last night i made chili.  i was out of crushed tomatoes, so i used the half a jar of salsa i had in the fridge and about half a container of the pearl toms i had gotten at the store.  the little one has been eating the ones we are growing inside...so the store bought ones were just sitting there.

it turned out pretty good. i added extra chili powder since the salsa seemed a bit sweet.

tonight we are having mac and cheese with onions and peppers.

i had a can of the pop n fresh biscuits in the fridge.  i wanted to try to make filled pockets.   i fried off some hamburger, drained off the fat, added half a jar of salsa, some chili powder, black pepper, onion/garlic powder and a pinch of salt.  i cooked it until most of the water from the salsa was gone.  i rolled out the biscuits til they were thin and bigger circles.  i put a little block of pepperjack cheese and then put down some of the meat filling.  i picked it up and then kinda gathered it up and pinched it closed.  it looked like a ball.  i put them seam side down on a cookie tray that i put a sheet of parchment on.   i baked them in the oven until they were brown.

they turned out really good! i think next time i will shred the cheese and mix into the meat mixture so it is more all through the little pocket sandwich rather than just a melty center.  we had them with some corn and fresh strawberries.

i kinda winged it.  i found a container of the tomato base i had made over the summer (tomato, candy onion, peppers, misc spices) and defrosted it.  i ended up mixing in some instant rice (enough to soak up the juice) and a can of kidney beans.  i heated it up and served with some shredded cheddar on top.  it was very good last night and should be even better today.  :)

the fresh tomato base makes me excited to get gardening outside again!

Even though it is still summer I felt like a chicken gumbo today. It is my second attempt at making a gumbo. It sure smells great in the kitchen! After video chatting with Boo and Missy this afternoon it looks like I did not add enough roux. I am still learning here :)

Also I am running out of roux now, need to make a new batch. Like in the garden, I find it always fun to learn new things about cooking. I am sure I will learn how to make it properly next October!

Big thank you to Donald for your gardening and cooking videos! I had no idea about how to make a roux before watching your Youtube video.

hi tazzy

i looked up lemon vinacotto as i had never heard of it before.  i got several answers..some said vinegar with lemon, some said like a syrup with lemon, some said it is just aged lemon juice.  it said it is good with seafood or drizzled over cheese to give food brightness.  my hub might like this. 

how do you make yours?  what does it taste like?

thanks for your info!
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: Tazzy Turfer on February 05, 2017, 07:42:15 PM
G'day Woodchip,
We make vincotto in various forms & to be more exact 7 in total , Fig, spiced cherry, spiced ginger, anise,minted five berry, mixed berry, & lemon. Vincotto has been made by Mediterranean peoples like Itallian , Greek, Turkish, for many millennia .It is based on a cooked red wine & grape must , we use a dolce rosso style of wine & combine this with seasonal fruits we grow or source through the producers network in the valley, assorted spices, herbs & sugars.This is then cooked low & slow for about 24 hours in a large slow cooker to reduce the volume & intensify the flavors. The Angles take about 3/4 of the total volume & all the alcohol is cooked off,( these Angles must have a great time) The flavor is incredible so I would recommend you try some if you have a delicatessen or Italian pantry in your area ,or have a go yourself,   we do them in 5 liter batches for the farmers market but if you stuff up,  it will hurt your pocket. Vincotto is an extremely versatile product & can be used as a salad dressing, Baste for meats, ice cream topping,pancake drizzle, cream flavoring for whipped cream, in stir fry's, sauces, gravy s, milkshake flavorings. It is up to your imagination , but beware if used to heavily without tasting you might not be impressed so slowly does it, you can always add more but it is a bugger to take it out if you-are too heavy handed. With cheeses we make Quince paste, Dutch medlar jelly ,Pear & apple cheese or fruit leathers ,sometimes we use the fruit like our Cherries or plums that I have made a fruit brandy out of to make  these dishes & add an extra dimension to the taste.                                      Hope this helps ,    Regards Pete

Tonight's Repast was a homemade chicken ,sweetcorn  & noodle soup . The stock was made from a chicken frame left over from a roast , a couple of crushed garlic cloves , some diced onion, diced carrot & a celery stick seasoned with salt ,pepper & a tiny dab ginger paste to taste . This I boil it up to extract the flavor & strain out the solids which goes in the bin  then  I re-pot the stock  & add the noodles ,some finely diced chicken meat, finely shredded  shallots ,creamed corn, & thicken it with a tablespoon or two of cornflour hydrated in a 1/4 cup of water,  then I stir in a couple of well beaten  whole eggs to finish. served with a slice of buttered home made bread.

Post by: Vince6424 on February 12, 2017, 06:50:04 AM
First time I try this recipe Michelle! Makes me want to try some more such as Boeuf Bourguignon, Coq au vin, etc. I will have a go at them when the weather is colder here. My mum used to cook those when I was a kid.

My grand mother who was born in Poland - her parents and her then migrated to France before WW1 - was a wonderful cook, I still remember some great dishes she cooked for us. She died of breast cancer when I was a teenager and I miss her very much. I will always remember my last visit. She was a very brave lady, never complained.

Many migrants from Poland fought in WW1 with the French forces against the Germans.

Mrs Chip , Mrs Crazyhorse don't measure much, with that in mind our meat loaf is made from
97% lean ground beef, add ketchup , onions, pepper to taste .
We don't add salt .
She makes it about 1" thick with  a dark brown crust.
Most folk might not like it but we do.

Good luck

Post by: woodchip gardener on February 13, 2017, 01:22:20 AM
hi crazyhorse. i was curious to see if she puts bell pepper in hers.  i was raised having it with that and the ketchup baked on top instead of mixed in.  hub does not like the bell pepper in his, so i leave that out now.  i love meatloaf and make it all sorts of ways.  have you ever tried using ranch dressing as the moisture instead of the ketchup?  it tastes pretty good.   i am with mrs. crazyhorse on making it thinner and with a nice crust vs. more like a loaf. 

vincent, i don't care about the alcohol.  the last time i made a dish with wine it just seemed like that is all i could taste.  i am not a fan of wine and was just wondering if the wine blends in or overwhelms the flavor of this dish.  your feedback is appreciated!

Make my meatloaf with onions and bell peppers but sometimes not the onions, if I am really rushed. I put Heinz 57 in it and on top of it. Tastes good---everyone seems to like it. Make it with ketchup in and on top,too---- very good,also. Made beef stew for the first time(ashamed to say) in my life yesterday----excellent. Will have leftovers tonight.

Lasagna takes too long to make and I'll only do that in mass production like I did tonight. It wasn't too bad but 6 hours in the kitchen when the sun is shining bright in February is burning daylight.

that is a smart idea ragun.  i love lasagna, but you are right...it is a pain to make.  did you use boiled noodles?  or those 'pan ready' noodles for the ones you freeze?

CRAWFISH- The wife brought home 10# of boiled crawfish for supper tonight.  They were delish.  She is still eating her share.   She takes the time to eat the claw meat, but she does not suck the heads or insert little finger to get the fat out of the head.  The shells were a little hard for this time of year but they were of good size, evidently already molted.

When a crawfish molts it transfers the calcium in its present shell to two calcium balls in its head near the eyes.  The present shell then drops off and a new larger shell is formed.  Then the calcium from the two little balls is then transferred to the new shell making it hard again.

there is a roadside stand off of 421 on our way up to see our daughter at school.  They sell hot and sweet chow chow in canned jars.  they also sell regular pickle relish and kimchi. 



Mrs Chip, several years ago we gave out of our batch of chowchow and bought a jar of Mrs Campbell's Hot Chowchow and like it so much better that we have not  canned any chowchow since.
We get it form Walmart.

It is put out now by  Golding Farms 6061 Gun Club Road, Winston-Salem, N.C. 27193 or GoldingFarms.com.
They also sell lots of other products that are good .

I played Italian tonight, many people have told me I look like Tony Soprano. I don't see the resemblance besides we both have fat heads, maybe it's the accent.
Lasagna takes too long to make and I'll only do that in mass production like I did tonight. It wasn't too bad but 6 hours in the kitchen when the sun is shining bright in February is burning daylight.

that is a smart idea ragun.  i love lasagna, but you are right...it is a pain to make.  did you use boiled noodles?  or those 'pan ready' noodles for the ones you freeze? 

I use regular pasta cooked al dente.

I made a beef stock last night using shanks and oxtails to use for soup and I wanted to make enough stock to use later, I have about a gallon left.
I seasoned and browned the meat took it out and sliced 3 onions to make a french onion type gravy then added mushrooms, the meat and water and let it simmer for a few hours.
Took some out this morning and made a smaller pot of soup. I used a bag of Asian blend vegetables which had broccoli, bamboo shoots, snow peas and carrots. I added ginger, more mushrooms, dried lily flower, garlic and pancit noodles then I topped the bowl with cilantro, green onions, hoisin and sriracha sauce.

Brunch!!

hub is working tonight so the little one and i had a mix of stuff over the span of an hour or so lol.  we both had big bowls of cut up fruit.  hers was raspberries, green grapes, watermelon and strawberries.  mine was cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon and grapes.   then in a bit i had some of the cold leftover roast beef from dinner the other night on a tortilla with some lettuce and onion.  the little one had some chicken nuggets and the smiley face fry things.  we polished off our buffet with some baby carrots with peanut butter.  yum.

hub is home tomorrow night for dinner, so i am making deconstructed stuffed cabbage.   i will saute some of the cabbage separately for the little one and save her some of the rice out plain.  i think she will have a hot dog to go with it.

crazyhorse, all these posting with 'real cornbread' is making me want some.  i might make some tomorrow morning to have with breakfast.  cornbread with real butter and the rest of the cut up fruit sounds like the breakfast of champions to me.  :)

Mrs Chip , I agree about the cornbread.
My wife & I came from country , farming families and both of us like cornbread.
At home when I was growing up, some times  supper was  fresh cow butter & milk (either sweet or buttermilk)  & cornbread.

Some times my wife & I still have milk & cornbread for supper.


For tonight we had Salmon , taters, maters, corn & of course Diet Pepsi & no fat chocolate yogurt.

i made the deconstructed stuffed cabbage for dinner the other night and we had some of the leftovers last night.  tasted even better than the first time.   i will probably finish it off for lunches today and tomorrow. 

i got a good deal on boneless skinless chicken breast at the store (1.99/lb!) so i will probably make some oven baked chicken for dinner.  i haven't decided what to marinate it in yet.  i have some lemon pepper marinade in there...might use that.  i got a pack of shredded cheese as well that is marked 'mac and cheese blend'.  it has cheddar, Gruyere and some other kind of cheese i can't remember right now.  i might make some homemade mac and cheese to have with the chicken.  will also have steamed broccoli on the side.  the little one loves broccoli.

However, I come from a family of wonderful cooks, caterers, and a chef who has cooked for Paul Newman, Oprah Winfrey,  Andre Previn, and others in the past. He was a private chef for the Luce(Time Magazine) for a long time,too. I would not ever say that I am as gifted as some of my family, but I do know a beautiful (and I am sure,delicious) dish when I see one. Yours really caught my attention and made me want to reach through this computer and taste it!!

I made a comment on Ragun Gardener's post about "easy BBQ" ribs about using a toaster oven to cook ribs and other items.  I suggested trying to cook a larger piece of meat on a toaster over but I had not tried it.  I doesn't heat up the house in the summer time.

So yesterday I tried it.  The wife had bought about a 2 1/2 pound corn beef brisket for St. Patrick's day.  I prepared it and put it in the toaster over and cooked it for 4 1/2 hours.  The results I will grade at a B-.
It turned out tender but I did not baste it for the 4 1/2 hours of cooking so it was somewhat dry. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER.   It was the right color for me but she did not like the red.  If I had basted it I could have rated it as an A.  You could cut the slices with a fork, it was just not juice.

Was served with stir fry cabbage and onions, with hash browns, and baked beans, Texas toast and a big slice of chocolate cake. 

Tonight I will baste what is left to make sandwiches.

We ate over half of it last night.  I will certainally baste the next one.

Thanks, Crazyhorse. Feeling somewhat  better today, but my brother seems to have caught it now,too. My husband has not  caught it yet, but he has a super immune system so may not. I did not bake the cake last night----just could not summon up the energy! Glad y'all recovered from the "crud"! Tonight will get the hubby to just cook some hamburgers on the grill. If I am still feeling better will fry up some fries. If not, chips will have to do.

The wife found a new Pizza sauce "Buffalo Chicken" so we decided to give it a try using the Lodge 14' Pizza pan
This was a great day for the CI because first I had to grill the Chicken Breast  :)

Used a 10" Lodge Grill pan for that on a Butterflied Boneless Skinless Breast

(http://i.imgur.com/NS8zSgq.jpg)

set that aside to cut into 1/2 squares

I used the Pizza Dough Recipe from the Bob's Red Mill Artisan Bread Flour bag
The new Sauce, Mozzarella Cheese, Grilled Chicken Chunks, and a few Blue Cheese crumbles..

(http://i.imgur.com/oZM4y8E.jpg)

This was one of the best pizzas I have made so far, the crust was as perfect as I think I can get for my tastes, I am trying to mimic a true NY folding slice :)
The Pizza pan is still performing perfectly, the pizza slides right off and cleanup is a simple paper towel wipe off..

tonight was another 'get creative with leftovers' night.  i had a couple of containers of scarlet pearl tomatoes getting way too ripe on my cupboard.  i put those, a whole onion, a clove of garlic, a container of fresh mushrooms i had in the fridge, 3 of the mini sweet peppers that i had on the cupboard, some chopped broccoli from the freezer, a few carrots to cut the acid in the toms, salt/pepper and a bowl of fresh spinach i picked from the yard into a pot.  i cooked it all down and had it over some rice.  it turned out pretty good for winging it.

Thanks for the hint,Gopherbroke, I will tell him. We had (for the first 23 yrs of marriage) always grilled with a natural gas outdoor grill. Then we moved here and there was not one in the backyard, so Bobby said he would try charcoal until we could have one installed----well, have been here 22 years now and have never bothered to have it installed----love that charcoal!!

we went out last night to run some errands and ended up eating at a new fast food place called culvers.  it was pretty good.  they had some more options than standard fast food including sides of mashed potatoes and green beans.  my chicken tenders were pretty basic but my hub said the burger was good.   if i am in that area again i would go back.

tonight hub is working so it is just me and the little one.  i have some of the tomato/veg mixture left (see mar 31 below) in the freezer.  i took that out and plan on adding some leftover steak and noodles.  i guess it would count as a goulash, but just trying to use up stuff i have.

i had some eggs that just came to date.  i whisked those in a bowl with a dead ripe tomato that i had around that i diced up, the last small onion on my cupboard and some salt and pepper.  i had gotten some homemade bread at a local church bake sale that i had a chunk of left.  i cut that up and put it in the bottom of a greased pan.  i poured the egg mixture over it and baked it in the oven.  turned out pretty good.  ate some for dinner and hub and i will have the rest tomorrow morning for breakfast.

hub was home for dinner, so i made meatloaf.  i used ranch dressing as the moisture and some smashed up french fried onions to hold it together (found out i was out of bread crumbs after i had already put the meat and ranch in the bowl, lol. )   tasted pretty good.

i made mashed potatoes and served with peas.  i am glad they were just the canned peas since hub caught the edge of the bowl with his plate and they went flying.  had to make more.   :P

hi pete

what is an apple roll up?  how do you make them?
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: Tazzy Turfer on May 16, 2017, 05:18:26 AM
G'day woodchip,
It's a bit like a sausage roll , just using a slice of bread rather than puff pastry, but made with stewed fresh apple, like you would for apple pie ( Chunky ). Then you take a slice of fresh bread & trim off the crust, & pin it out real flat with a big rolling pin. Then place the cooled apple filling along the top edge being generous but not overly so it spills out or won't join up & roll the lot up ensuring an overlap at the join. Then roll this in some melted butter & roll in some cinnamon & sugar mix,  to coat the outside & place these on some baking paper lined tray making sure the join is on the bottom . Bake at 160 degrees c for about 15 mins or until  they brown up. The kids love them as well as us kids at heart , the bread  comes out just like a pastry & I put our cherries in them too when there in season. Ellie & I make a batch every week to take to our farmers market along with the preserves etc.  , just to add interest to our stall.
                                                                                     Regards Pete

i am super jealous about the fresh sliced toms double b.   :P

hub was home for dinner so i wanted to try something new.  i made pasta in cream sauce with peas, onion and turkey.  i had 1 onion that i pulled today that had started to bulb but sent up a seed stalk.  i cut that up and sauteed in a bit of butter.  then added 1 pint of heavy cream, 1/2 cup milk, black pepper and some of the peas I had picked from the garden and froze.  i had some of the turkey cutlets left from lunch yesterday so cut that into small cubes and added that.  once it thickened up i added about 1/2 cup of shredded parm and a pinch of salt.  turned out good.  the turkey had been marinated so the spices from that flavored up the sauce.  if it had been reg turkey i would def add some garlic or rosemary next time because it would def need something.

Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: SpringTxGardener on May 16, 2017, 09:01:23 PM
Woodchip, that pasta looks and sounds delicious.    I'm having green beans with onions and potatoes from the garden.    I'm also slicing 2 tomatoes 1/2 inch thick that I picked today.
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: woodchip gardener on May 17, 2017, 12:54:46 PM
you're killin' me spring!  i have been eating the water filled, tasteless store tomatoes and would love a fresh picked one.  we went from cold and rainy here to 90.  i have only a handful of very small toms set on and i am pretty sure they are not going to do anything else since it is already so hot and sunny here.  :(

the green bean/onion/potato dish sounds interesting.  i have had green beans/onion and potato/onion but never all 3 together.  how do you cut the potatoes?  do you saute it?  let me know.  i would like to try it.

Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: SpringTxGardener on May 17, 2017, 08:08:02 PM
Woodchip, I snap the green beans, cut the onions in quarters and I cut the potatoes in half if the are longer than about 4 inches ( I grew Austrian fingerling potatoes this year).    Add everything to a 10 quart pot and fill with water until everything is just about covered.    Heat on stove until boiling, turn down heat to a simmer and cook for about 1.5 hours or until everything is as done as you like.   Season to your liking.   Most of the time I add low sodium chicken broth as at least half of the liquid but I was out yesterday so I just added water.     I had enough left over from last night so I'm having it warmed up again tonight, along with some more thick sliced tomatoes.

Since the garden came in we have been alternating between green beans with potatoes and onions and sausage....and squash casserole with ham,all from the garden(had to buy the sausage and ham).Take out chicken ocasionally....Now we are having okra ,tomatoes with onions cooked with sausage.All from the garden. As a side sweet banana pepper stuffed with cheese or with dip,You cant beat home cooking with fresh carden vegetables.
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?

you are right there texasfarmer!  there is nothing more delicious than veg picked from your own garden.   

i don't eat pork, but the banana pepper stuffed with cheese sounds interesting.  what kind of cheese do you use?  do you bake them as is or coat and fry them?

i can have them along with the beans/onions/potatoes that spring suggested.  that would be a heck of a meal!

ya know what i love about your dinner postings pete?  that i have to hit the net to try to figure out what the heck you are eating...lol.  you have such a wide variety of things you make.  as a girl who like to look stuff up...it keeps it interesting.  :)

so from what i read, you had a lentil curry sort of dish (web said also has coconut, but you did not mention) with thin garlic wafer sort of things.  the tea looks interesting.  black tea with gum leaves?  how does it taste?
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: Tazzy Turfer on May 21, 2017, 08:18:54 AM
G'day Woodchip,
     You are pretty spot on your research , The billy tea is hot, strong & black ,& it's  a bit like our vegemite, it's an acquired taste ,we only use gum leaves when in the bush & boiling the billy over an open  fire  for the hot water , its  to reduce the Smokey flavor &  it adds a bit of interest. Once you have the billy can  on a rolling boil the tea leaves are added & steeped for a few minutes , Then the billy is spun at arms length, a bit like an aircraft  propeller, for a few seconds or so , this is  to settle the tea leaves to the bottom of the billy, before pouring the tea  this manuver  takes a bit of practice to build confidence,( my Father had me do it with cold water till I got it right as a kid ,about 55 odd years ago} or you could get scalded . Dahl is as you said ,is  made with red lentils ,vegies , coriander ,  curry & other herbs & spices, it's  made using coconut milk  & stirring in some coconut cream just before serving ,at least, that's how we do it ,Pappadams are more like a crisp bread  about 5 inches across, they are  hard at first but you flash fry them in oil or nuke them for a minute in a microwave ,then they turn round, flatish & crispy, you can even use them like a spoon just like in India, if you want. The only problem with this dish is your south wind gets going after a few hours, but geez its sure tastes  nice.

it was date night for hub and i.  :)  we went to appleby's for dinner (it was closest to the movie theater).  it was a bit of a let down.  i had a burger and it was pretty much tasteless.  hub had the shrimp and blackened chicken combo.  he said it was ok, but the shrimp was a bit overcooked. at least it was nice to eat out and have a meal without the little one. 

luckily we went to see wonder woman and it rocked!

At the expense of really sounding old, I have gotten to the point of not enjoying going out to eat. Most of the stuff that the chain restaurants serve is horrible at best. We do have some locally owned places to eat with good food but this time of year, we have a plate full of home grown vegetables and that can't be beat. A plate of sliced tomatoes on the side. Yum yum. A couple friends dropped by last night and we had everything grilled: ribeye steaks, yellow squash and asparagus! We all enjoyed it.

Post by: woodchip gardener on June 07, 2017, 08:48:33 PM
hi db.  i am with you on when we do eat out we try to find the good local places.  we happen to choose appleby's because it was close.  i usually use trip advisor to find good local places.  they tend to have reliable reviews.

tonight i made the other turkey that i had gotten on sale after mother's day.  we had herbed rice with butter and green beans.   

i am going to use some of the left over turkey to make turkey salad sandwiches for lunch tomorrow. 
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: Rabbitproof on June 08, 2017, 06:30:21 AM
Well, although I consider this place the best place to live for so,so many reasons, the food is not good----even in the local restaurants. I have been cooking 99% of every meal we eat, because of that fact. In fact, it is the reason I got into gardening. I think maybe everyone would agree,though, that food products have been in a downward spiral since the late 80's----I noticed the change even way back then. If you want good tasting food, you have to grow it yourself and cook it yourself!! Seems like "progress" has just made us go backwards and made more work for us!!!

hi gopher

yep, yelp is good too!  :)

hub worked last night, so it was just me and the little one home for dinner.  i gave in and let her have chicken nuggets and potato patties.   the good part was it was easy and you just throw them in the oven on some foil.  no clean up! 

i had some of the leftover turkey breast on toast with lettuce and onion.  i put a couple of slices of the pepperjack cheese on there to kick it up a bit.  was really good.   we both had some applesauce and green beans too.

hub is home for dinner tonight, so i am going to use the last of the turkey breast to make turkey in gravy over biscuits.  i have a zucchini on that is ready to pick, so i will saute some of that up with some of the candy onion from the freezer.  yum!

how did she do db?

we had oven baked chicken (i marinated it in kraft sesame salad dressing) and i made some zucchini 'crab' cakes.  we don't normally eat that much fried stuff, so it took me a few tries to get the oil right so they didn't burn. i think they turned out pretty good.  next time i might add just a bit more old bay, but they were tasty.  here is a pic of the zucchini cakes.  we also had the last of the red grapes.

Teresa got the recipe online and the link is below.  The recipe calls for cooking in the microwave but she baked it instead at 325 for 45 minutes then added extra cheese and baked another 15 minutes.  That way the squash didn't get as well done and soft as in the microwave.   She also added 1/2 cup bell peppers and two cloves of chopped garlic.

G'day Woodchip,
 Your photo appears to be a beesting bun which is a bit like a soft yeast raised  sweet bread topped with honey & toasted almond flakes & filled with whipped  fresh cream . Beesting biscuits are like cookies but are like a soft gingerbread but made with honey instead of ginger & iced with pink or white fondant .You can top them with slivered almonds or 100s & 1000s sprinkles if its for the little kids .
                            Regards Pete

Leftovers from a weekend of company. A touch of roast, a tad of chicken spaghetti, a bite of breakfast egg/sausage soufflé, a few bites of chicken salad I made for a picnic, a piece of Turtle pie, and some scratch brown sugar walnut brownies. Shall I say the diets are failing in this house!!

i really wanted some tacos tonight.  i had a couple of boxes of shells and some ground beef in there, so i went for it.  i made some hard tacos.  hub was at the store earlier today and really wanted that velveeta/rotelle chiles and tomatoes kinda dip.  it is not my cup of tea, but i did put a bit of it in my taco on top of the meat.  i added lettuce and some pico de gallo.  they were so good!

i had pulled a bunch of the little rumi toms and knew i could make the pico with them.  i chopped those up, added a few chopped campari toms, chopped candy onion from the freezer, some cilantro, lime juice, the smallest little amount of jalepeno chopped up very very small, a little garlic and some salt and pepper.  i made it earlier in the day so it had some time to sit and get together.

it turned out good.  here is a pic (it looks so wet in the bottom because we ate most of it and this is what was left).  i am going to put it on hub's salad that i pack for his dinner for tomorrow night.

i still had some pico de gallo left after dinner the other night...and even after putting some in grill cheese for lunch yesterday and in hub's salad.  tonight i decided to try to kill 2 birds with one stone for dinner.  i had the leftover pico and tons of zukes around.  i blitzed a bunch of zucchini today to freeze for later use.  i kept about a cup of that out and added the leftover pico de gallo with eggs and such to make a frittata. it took over an hour to cook.  even though i had salted and drained the zuke, i think it still gave off some water and kept the frittata from cooking quicker.  the good part is that it should reheat really well being that moist.   this is what was left after dinner.  we will prob have it for lunch tomorrow too.

She washed it, sliced it and breaded it and I fried it. It was fantastic. Oh yeah.... I had a little chicken with it too.

Michelle,

We enjoy and use everything we grow. That's not to say that occasionally something doesn't go to waste but we get a lot of pleasure growing and eating our own food. I made some chicken salad yesterday with some of my dill pickles that have just become pickled enough to use. The salsa, tomato sauce and pepper sauce are used regularly. Most nights, we have at least two or three vegetables we have grown. I wonder what other people eat because it doesn't seem like vegetables make up much of the dinner plates anymore.

My wife and I looked very hard at our health at the beginning of this year and decided to cut out most of the bread and a lot of the starches we had been eating. Both of us were way to heavy and as of this morning I have lost thirty pounds since the first of March. My blood sugar went from 241 to 95. I didn't want to take diabetes medicine and had some decisions to make. The joy we get from gardening, sitting on the back porch with our neighbors and shelling peas, trading garden goodies with my other neighbors for eggs are a huge part of the reason that we love living in the country. I feel that there are still sustainable ways to live in this modern age and I hope that we can all continue to share our challenges and victories on this fantastic site that Mr. Donald has created.

Mr BB, congratulations ,it is good to hear you have lost weight and eating healthy.

I agree with you .
I could not say it as well as you did.

I too thank Mr Donald for this site.
He has helped more people than we will ever realize .
I think Mr Donald should be recognized at the local, state level &  President Trump should recognize Mr Donald for all the lives he has touched and made their live better in a very positive and helpful way with out any reward or money .
Mr Donald is truly what  a good American is all about.
Thank you sir.

I just dice up about 1/2 a medium onion and add it into the mixture. I put a few tablespoons of bacon grease in a black skillet, heat it in the oven, add the mixture, and bake for the recommended time.

we went out for dinner last night to meet my future son in laws parents.  we went to olive garden.  the parents were lovely folks and we got along gangbusters.  the service and food however was crap.  the waiter brought salad for the folks having salad, but did not show up with our soup until they were already done with salad. then there was a hair in his mom's soup.  i ordered the grilled chicken parm and they brought me fried chicken parm.  i told the waiter, but did not send it back as it took FOREVER to get our food in the first place.

luckily the company was wonderful and we still had a fun night.  :)

i had pulled some eggplant from the garden i wanted to use up.  i put some sauce down, sliced up the eggplant, layered it with mozz cheese and some of the baked tomatoes i had baked off to use up the little toms.  i got 3 layers in the pan, so i used up 2 of the eggplants.  I cooked it off yesterday while i had the oven on.  we will prob have some of that tonight with rice on the side and some steak.

i got some of the breyers choc caramel gelato on clearance at the store.  we tried that for dessert.  it sort of tasted like eating chocolate butter with caramel ribbon in it.   i ate it, but it was def not worth buying if it was not a clearance flavor.  i like the texture of ice cream better.

My cousin Jane came to visit for the weekend. While she is a brilliant engineer, she grew up on the farm, row cropping, ranching cattle and a huge egg laying operation. She lives in the city but still a country girl at heart. I cooked for her and my wife and did a chicken on the rotisserie, grilled bison tenderloin, beef tenderloin, cream peas, baked sweet potato fries, okra and cream corn. I think it reminded her of home ;)

G'day Guys,
 Tonight I made a bush stew with coarse minced beef browned with garlic & onion, then remove the meat from the pot to rest , & I cook the veges  in a beef stock  in the same deep pot using, diced spuds, carrots, cabbage, corn, peas, rainbow chard,sweet potato with  leek Broccoli & fennel & mushrooms{Basically anything you have in your garden or scrounge from the wild larder . Then replace the cooked meat component  when the veges are ready ,then  add some salt & pepper to taste with a teaspoon full of Vegemite , Pro mite or a textured vegetable protein dissolved in apple cider, this I thicken with some cornflour making a slurry before adding it to the stew at simmering heat to thicken. stir slowly & continuously & add the thickener  slowly for a while to ensure it doesn't stick or burn.Take off the heat & serve with crusty garlic bread rolls  washed down with my home made & very moreish Oakley flavored dark Jamaican rum

You are right, but we use the same ingredients maybe changing the stock & whatever protein you have available at the time,I.E , Wallaby, Roo, emu, lamb, goat , crock,  or whatever you pull out of the river ,so it's called a bush stew or a mystery bag if you are not the cook (LOL)

hi pete.  i looked up potato rosti.  it looks delicious!  like a giant fluffy potato pancake!  i am gonna have to try that! 

i was reading how to do it.  can i ask you, did you par boil your potatoes?  did you use flour or no?  there seems to be a def divide on both of these points.

Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: Tazzy Turfer on August 12, 2017, 08:09:29 AM
G'day Michelle,
The way we do it is to grate the spuds Au naturele, then squeeze them to remove any excess moisture,  you can use a little potato starch, breadcrumb & an egg  for a binding agent if they are too moist or sloppy ,depending on the quality / type of potato & what you want to achieve , I make a little garlic paste with a clove of garlic & a pinch of salt using the back of a french cooks knife on a chopping block & sometimes also add a bit of grated cheese to the mix .I have also added other diced veges & onion to vary the flavor,& then season to taste. You can make them like rissoles,& push them out a bit in the fry pan or use an oiled egg ring as a former & pack your mixture into this directly,Then when you flip them over to cook the other side remove the ring , this gives a more professional & even result ,just don't have your pan super hot or the outside will burn before the inside is cooked  the thicker the longer the cook time(about 5 mins a side or so on the stove top)Just have a go & make them to what you want, the worst thing is they go in the compost.

i do have to ask though...where do you shop?  i mean most folks i know don't have bonito flakes hanging around.  do you order stuff online?  do you shop at a specialty store?  or are the stores there just full of weird stuff?

G'day Woodchip,
We have Asian Grocery shops specializing in this type of food & it is in the Asian sections of the major grocery stores. The miso is a fermented soy product that is the base for my soup, I dice up dried Kombu (seaweed)  or add whatever veggies I want or have, The Bonito is a pelagic hunting fish & is easily procured from the same source as the Miso stock base. We also have one of the most famous Sushi chefs, Masakai,  in town who is married to a Tasmanian girl & runs his restaurant here,  along with other interests . He is a great source of Information & brings a lot of tourists from near & far to help the local economy.So, I guess we have a lot of weird, good stuff to try out, if you are open to it.

Chip, you need to go out and venture in some Asian stores. I've been on a noodle kick and have been trying a few pre packaged ramen and you'll be surprised, the ramen you see in stores are junk compared to what the Asian stores have.

I would guess your daughter in collage has friends that eat these all the time.

You should try the Prima Taste Lamian, it's the top shelf of ramen. It's good enough that it could pass for restaurant quality with a few added ingredients.

Here's some Jjamppong, it's in the cooler and comes with 2 packs of fresh noodles. I added some fake crab meat(Pollock), scallops, shrimp, cilantro and scallions.

The bottom is Nongshims Shin Black pot au feu instant ramen. I added mushrooms, sliced pork, cilantro, scallions, Hoisin and Sriracha sauce.

hi ragun

my older daughter's best friend is korean.  many years ago her mom told me about the international store that they shop at down by our old house and we go there for items when my daughter is home. they have literally a little bit of everything!  they have all sorts of fruit and veg you would never see at the regular store.  they carry staples for pretty much everyone.  there is also a fish market in there, several food vendors and even some home goods like pots/pans/small appliances, etc.

https://www.supergmart.net/

 i know she has had the black package of ramen before.  she too adds meat and veg to hers.  the store we have gone is rather large and has a good variety.  we have made asian food many times...i was just surprised because tazzy has such a broad range of dishes that he makes...i was just wondering what inspires him. 

my daughter always seems to find interesting things when we go there.  she got me one time.  she handed me what looked like a honey coated peanut.  when you first eat it....sweet and delish.  then the fish flavor sneaks up on you last minute.  lol.  turns out there was cuttlefish in them and that is all you taste once you get past the initial sweet.  they weren't bad, but when your brain expects sweet and you get a mouth full of fish flavor it is a surprise. lol



Title: Re: Whats for supper ?

This evening I browned a couple of pounds of hamburger meat with a large onion chopped up. Drained the grease off and added beef broth and then the fun began. I added a can of our tomatoes, celery, Lima beans, corn, carrots, green beans and some potatoes. It made a big pot of delicious beef vegetable soup.

that sound delish db!  perfect for the rainy cold weather.

last night we made hamburgers.  i made them really thin (i just press it out thin on some parchment on a cookie tray then salt/pepper/onion powder/garlic powder and put it in the oven) so my little one would eat it.  she covered hers in pickles and ketchup, but she actually ate half of it!  she loves most veggies, but trying to get her to eat any sort of meat has always been a challenge, so i am excited!
we had them on the store brand of a king's hawaiian sort of hamburger bun.  (hub stopped a couple of days ago to get bread and that was all they had left...lol.)  they were very soft, but the little bit of sweetness was a nice compliment to the burger.  i had mine classic with lettuce, toms and raw onion.  i sauteed up some mushrooms for hub's and he really enjoyed it.

G'day Bob,
You can get Skippy at most of the bigger grocery stores like Coles or Woolworth's ,The tails are good stewed low & slow & there are some pretty good lean cuts of meat for steaks off the legs ETC, just like the Wallaby meat. Crocodile is more on the restaurant menu along with Emu  etc ,to get these Au natural you need a specialty supplier or collect them yourself from the scrub .However if you want to try these meats done differently there are Bakeries that make them in a range of meat pies or Sausage rolls pretty much all around Australia .My mate used to ask the young shop assistants for a crocodile sandwich at the local takeaway & tell them to make it snappy,LOL) he used to get some weird looks an a few giggles.

Last night my wife and I had a friend (Joe) that was staying with us so we started grilling. He invited a friend to come by. Next our neighbors came over and friends came too. We ended up with 13 people and 7 dogs. I grilled for several hours while we visited and had a great time. We cooked bacon wrapped jalapeños, corn on the cob, beef tenderloin filets, bone in ribeye steaks, pork chops and jalapeño cheddar fresh pork sausage. It was yummy!

Woodchip,

It was a great time. Folks just kept coming by and I kept on grilling. It was pleasant outside and it seemed like everyone had a good time and ate well too.

Tonight it was just my wife and I and we had chicken and spinach enchiladas along with purple hull peas and okra.

Yesterday my next door neighbor wanted to fire up his fryer so I thawed out two bags of shrimp, two bags of frog legs, a bag of crappie filets and a quart of oysters. He had some catfish filets and by the time it was said and done we fed ten or eleven folks and watched the Astros clinch their division title and a bunch of football. A good time was had by all. We also made homemade hush puppies. They are the most unique hush puppies you have ever seen and also the best I have ever tasted ;)

we had a nice lunch yesterday before my older daughter left to go back to school.  we had spicy black bean patties on onion rolls with raw spinach, tomato and some garlic mayo.  i had not had them before and got them for her to have while home.  they were good.  they kind of tasted like refried beans (which i like, but generally don't eat because they are traditionally made with lard) with a kick...but they were thinner and had more of a texture of a skinny crab cake.  i will get them again.  the little even tried it.  i think she was ok with the bean flavor, but thought they were too spicy.  lol.  we had them with a side of sliced apples.  the little one had some peanut butter on her apples to offset her not having the burger and she wiped out all of the tomatoes i had cut up for on the sandwiches.

Dang, you went old school with that spam, I hope you had the manners to pan fry it with those crispy  edges to bring out that fatty flavor goodness first.
I'm sure I've had Duke's when I lived in Va and NC but I can't remember it being so good that I wanted more once I came back home to Blueplate. I think it's more of what you grew up on. It's kinda like sausage, we eat sausage and the rest of the country eats a spiced up wiener. LOL!!
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: ksp313 on September 20, 2017, 07:38:53 AM
Ragun your right, it was fried like God intended. Duke's is a relative newcomer to these parts but I prefer it to all others, it has no sugar in it. Ever made your own mayo? We've  never tried that.

rabbit...i love chili!  how did it turn out?  what do you put in yours?

tazzy,  is the chicken and sweetcorn soup a regular soup base or is it a cream soup?

yesterday we adventured to the new Lindl store (kind of a let down) about an hour from our house.  while there, i picked up a 2 pack of large portobello mushroom caps for hub.  i was not sure what i would do with them, but they were something new to try.  he is working tonight, so i just made him a cooked meal at lunch.  i got my gourmet on and made stuffed portobello mushroom caps.  it took a couple of youtube videos on how to clean them and some prep ideas, but i winged it and he really liked them.

Then crank up the heat till it boils , crack 2 eggs in a cup & beat well & put it aside where you can reach it  & a thickener is made with 2 large teaspoons of gf cornflower dissolved in 100 mls of water is made.When you are ready Add  in the thickener stiring continuously till it riches up , then mix in the beaten egg & it is ready when the egg is white & stringy, about 45 seconds.

For lunch I had to try something new I just found out about called Spam Musubi. 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. ;)

It's fried Spam with rice wrapped in seaweed. Who knew 7-11 in Hawaii sells these like we have hotdogs here. It came out pretty good, I didn't know seaweed would have a dried seafood taste. Maybe it's that rice seasoning Furikake I used.

Woodchip----sorry...just now reading all the comments. I just make a basic chili recipe----using ground chuck. I use my pureed garden tomatoes with green chili's (or jalapenos) in there, a  heaping TBS of chili powder, and of course a  TBS of cumin. Sometimes, to make it healthier, I throw in 2 cans of Progresso Minnestrone soup,too, and chop up 2 celery stalks----my mom used to do that----actually good. Of course, a large onion chopped up,too.  Mother said to use 2 cans of Progresso Vegetable soup instead of minestrone was good,too. Sometimes we like plain chili and sometimes the veggie soup/celery added kind----hubby says it all tastes the same to him. I have to agree. Sometimes I serve over white rice and sometimes not. Will be making it quite often this winter, as usual----but did not have a garden so will have to buy all canned tomato ingredients.

hub was home tonight for dinner.  :)     we had found some chicken breast pounded thin that was covered in some sort of parmesean cheese with spices.  it was on sale, so i thought we would try it.  it was pretty good.  i baked it in the oven on some parchment.  the little one even tried some and had a few bites.  i served it with one of the knorr sides thing that was noodles with spinach in a light sauce and we had some peas. 

yesterday i made a homemade apple pie.  i set the pie, still on the cookie sheet, onto a trivet at the end of the dining room table.  while running past, the little one caught the end of the cookie sheet with her elbow on the way by.  it slid off the trivet and splattered into a thousand piles of goop on the floor.   :(   

needless to say i was upset, but it was an accident so i got over it.  i still really wanted apple pie.  i had some apples left but not enough to make a big pie.  i peeled the apples, coated them in cinnamon and sugar and cooked them in a pan until they got soft.  in the meantime i pressed the can of buttermilk biscuits i had in the fridge into the bottom/up the sides of a baking pan.  i put the cooked apples into the baking dish on top of the makeshift crust and baked it until the bottom was brown.  it turned out pretty good!  we had it after dinner tonight.  the biscuits still did puff up a bit so the crust of it was a little thick, but it had a good apple flavor!

My neighbor called when I was on my way home from coaching the 4H shotgun kids and wanted to cook out on the patio. I made some chili con queso and brought some smoked sausage; he had some boudin and sausage and then his older daughter and boyfriend came home with some nice redfish so we did them on the halfshell. Obviously the redfish on the grill was the biggest hit. It was delicious mainly because it was freshly caught that day.

last night i made meatloaf, mashed potatoes, peas and applesauce.  we are trying to encourage our little one to eat more meat. she tried just meat loaf and made a face.  so then we suggested she put it on her fork and then bury it under a dab of mashed potatoes...it did the trick and she ate a good bit of it.  lol.

Mrs Chip, yes she did.
She rolls the dough out for the crust, boils the taters, mashes them up add vanilla flavor & butter to suit your taste and she put coconut in this one.

She is not a recipe/measuring cook, but everything ALWAYS taste just right to me.
When we got married over 46 years ago she would say if it does not suit your taste just tell me and I can make changes.
So her cooking is customized to our liking.
We hardly ever eat out.
I thank the Lord for Mrs Crazyhorse.

i am trying to get my little one to eat more.  she is super fussy.  tonight i made hasselback potatoes and oven baked chicken nuggets.  just  to inspire her to eat them, i used crushed goldfish crackers and onion crunchies to coat them.  it worked.  she actually ate half of one of the potatoes and about 3 of the nuggets.  she even ate her peas!  i am taking the win.  :)

hub is off tomorrow so i am going to use the leftover potatoes to make some potato salad or homefries.  the chicken i will probably use in wraps for us.  i made some pico de gallo out of the cherry tomatoes i picked yesterday, so we have that to use up.

I get a break because Bobby has a meeting with supper served. I will do my old stand by--eggs on toast. Love eggs--could eat them everyday. Good to get a break from major cooking. I feel all cooked out!

I am with you Rabbit.  Fried, poached, boiled it doesn’t make much difference I can eat them just about anyway, an for any meal.  I do prefer a couple slices of thick bacon on my egg sandwiches.

Post by: Rabbitproof on October 27, 2017, 02:29:18 PM
Gopher, I will fry them in bacon grease to get the taste. I get my bacon from 35 minutes away----local pigs smoked/cured the old fashioned way. Outstanding flavor! Don't have time to go get some, so will use the bacon grease I save. May make french toast to make it a real treat. Yep, like you, I love eggs any way/time I can get them!

mr. mike...that looks like it should be on food network  :)   good job! 


hub was off yesterday.  i could tell he is still sick since he has been wanting comfort food all week.  lol. 

last night i made spaghetti and meatballs.  i like to bake my meatballs vs. pan fry them, but they do tend to get tough that way.   i watched the kitchen conundrums video with thomas joseph and tried the milk soaked bread as the binder instead of just bread crumbs.  it worked!  they got a nice crust on them in the oven but the inside stayed tender! 

i packed him some leftovers and made him a little side salad to take to work today.   i am not a huge fan of pasta, but i have a feeling if he is not better today there will be some mac and cheese in my future.  lol.

Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: Rabbitproof on October 30, 2017, 09:38:16 AM
woodchip----you made me want some mac and cheese. I make it like my grandma-----layer of noodles, top with thick slices of cheddar cheese, pour in an egg and milk mixture, then repeat all. Top with ground up ritz crackers and pats of butter. I could eat the entire casserole!! Hope your hubby gets well soon.

Yesterday we were at the south rim of the Grand Canyon and ate at El Tovar. The salad had a bed of fresh greens, black berries, raspberries, pine nuts with a balsamic vinaigrette. The main course was a Native American taco. It was outstanding. It had a fried flat bread with ground beef, pinto beans, black beans, lettuce, purple onion and some cheese along with sliced tomatoes. It came with guacamole, salsa and sour cream and tasted fantastic.

woodchip - I'll have to give your meatball method a try.  I make some super good lamb meatballs but it takes a ton of ingredients to get them right.

Now I'm wanting to go make some Mac N Cheese. :)
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: woodchip gardener on October 31, 2017, 02:26:00 AM
rabbit...i love baked mac and cheese casserole!  that is my favorite way to eat it!  hub is not into the casserole style.  he is usually into more of the creamy mac and i usually end up making a cheese sauce from scratch and just adding some boiled noodles to that.  depending on my mood, we put other stuff in it like taco meat, mushrooms or top it with pico de gallo.  most of the time he just likes it plain though.

db that taco looks amazing!  i wish tacos here looked that good.  i wonder what i could use as the base.  you said it was a fried dough sort of thing.  do you think a pita would be the same thickness/texture?  or maybe a pita?  any suggestions?

mike, it worked really well.  rip the crust off of 4 slices of bread.  rip it into pieces and pour 1/2 cup of milk over the bread.  let it soak in a couple of minutes and then use a fork to break it up into finer texture.  then add 2 eggs (beat them a little bit to mix up the yolk), salt pepper and whatever spices you like.  put the meat in and mix just until they are together.  the youtube guy said if you overmix the meat mixture it will also make them tough.  not gonna lie, they felt super mushy when i was rolling them, but they did firm up during the cooking.  they got that nice crusty outside and stayed really tender in the middle.  i reheated some to have for lunch and even after microwaving them, they still had a nice texture.

Thanks for the link!  I was reading it and it made me giggle.  She seems like a bit of a hot mess when she was doing that fried dough.  I am going to try this though.  I will have to go get some crisco.

I love shepards pie!  I usually only make it when I have left over mashed potatoes though. 

On an unrelated note...yesterday I was watching a House Hunters International.  They had a young Scottish couple who had been living in Perth Australia (home of our very own Vincent) and moved to Northwest Tasmania.  The houses they looked at were very different.  One was near the town with a beautiful yard, the next one looked like it was in the middle of a field but it was only 5 minutes from his work and the last one was farther away but right on the ocean.  They ended up choosing the ocean one.  The view was amazing.   I know you live at the other end of Tasmania, but thought I would mention it since it made me think of you over there in Tasmania!

G'day Chip,
I make our pie with the leftover roasted lamb & veggies with a rich rosemary & mint gravy that I  stir through as a binder & put on a mashed spud topping that I bake till the top browns a little , sometimes i put some grated block cheese ,& tomato slices on the top as well. True Shepherds pie can't be made with beef mince like some say it can,I think  the name gives away the meat that is used . We call that a Beef & potato or spud pie if beef is used.The West Coast is a bit more remote & rugged than the east & really cops the Roaring 40s winds, I have seen four wheel drive trucks disappear in the foam on a beach that was whipped up by this wind.Macquarrie harbor is one of the East coasts major areas with fishing, mining, logging & tourism being the major employers. Have a look at Strauchan on google if you are curious.

Michelle,

Potato Chip Caaserole is a great blend of flavors that we have been making for three or four decades now:
Brown a pound and a half of ground meat with an chopped onions in it. Season the meat and onion mixture with salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Drain when browned. While browning the meat, boil a 12 oz. package of egg noodles and drain when done. When drained add a tablespoon of butter to the warm noodles.
Next mix 1 can of cream of mushroom soup, 8 oz. of sour cream and one soup can full of milk together. Grate 16 oz of cheddar cheese.

You can place this in one in a 13 X 9 pan or two smaller ones. We use two smaller Corning ware dishes sprayed with cooking spray.
Layer noodles, meat mixture, soup mixture and cheese. Repeat layers and then top with crushed lays potato chips. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes or until hot all the way through and chips are starting to brown.

Double B----Thanks for the reminder about Potato Chip Casserole-----used to make it years ago and Bobby really liked it.
Woodchip....my brother has had the stomach bug,too. Gave him a couple of quart jars of my home made chicken broth to heat up in hopes it would soothe his stomach. He said it really did the trick.
Ragun...love those tamales!! Wish I had the patience to make my own. The best in the world are made at Does restaurant in Greenville,Ms. my home town. I know I can never make as good as theirs,though. Yours look mighty good!!

We had Blackened Chicken over free range farfalle with garlic/chipotle cream sauce and garlic bread. Enjoyed with a Great Lakes Brewing Company's Edmund Fitzgerald Porter beer, in honor of the 29 souls lost forever on this day 42 years ago. For some reason, maybe because of Gordon Lightfoot's haunting anthem, I've always had a fascination with that story.

last night hub wanted something light for dinner so i baked a spaghetti squash.  he had his with just a little butter, salt, pepper and a shake of parm cheese.   the little one had hers as a side with some butter along with some leftover baked chicken.  i had some with just butter, then i remembered i had made some chili the day before, so i had some as the base under a scoop of chili.  it was delish. 

i had the smaller side still left so i cooled that a bit and then scooped it out to use today.  i found a spaghetti squash and spinach quiche recipe online i am going to try.  i want to bake them in my silicone muffin pan though as sing serve sizes so i can freeze the leftover ones easily.

sorry the pic is a little shaky.  i took it instead of waiting for hub.  :(

i had 2 bananas left, so i also made some bisquick banana muffins.  sorry, no pics on those.  :(    i used my silicone muffin pan that make 6 big muffins.  we had 3 tonight for our after dinner treat.  the other 3 we will have in the morning.  they turned out good, but because they had the 'muffin top' edges, even with the silicone pan a couple of them lost their top when coming out of the pan.  lol.  i just set them back together.  the little one really enjoyed it.

What's for supper?  School Soup.......What's that?  Why it's the kind of soup they used to serve you at school.  And it's pretty dang good, after all.  How do you make it?  Here's what I know.  I don't make it.  I just eat it.  But you need a large can of Veg-all, enough tomato juice for a base, and already fried hamburger.  Heat it all up in a pot and serve with saltine crackers and a couple sticks of sharp cheddar cheese.  I always crumble my crackers up in the soup first.  That's what I did when I used to teach.  Pretty good eatin!!!

My wife and I are both retired from public school and she keeps cooked hamburger in the freezer, canned tomato juice from our garden, and Veg-all in the pantry.  It's a quick and easy meal.

School Soup!!!!  LOL !

tazzy, tell the boss we send our well wishes   :)

mater, i remember that soup.  it was not bad..the only part i did not enjoy was the canned carrots.  they were pretty much mush.  ick.  i am not a cracker eater with soup...i tend to eat it til you just have the last little broth in the bottom and then wipe that up with a slice of buttered bread.  yum!

we have been eating thanksgiving leftovers and they are finally almost gone.  i think today for lunch will be the end of them.  lol.

hub is working tonight, so dinner will be something easy.  i have a frozen pizza in the freezer.  it will probably be that.

hub is working tonight, so i made whimpies for lunch.  i eat mine just on a hamburger bun, but hub and the little one put pickles on theirs.  we have not had these in a long time and it was a fun change for lunch.  we also had sliced bananas/apples and some pringles.

not sure what i will make for dinner tonight.  i have some baked chicken left over in there so i might make myself a wrap with some spinach from the yard and some cherry toms i got at the store.  (we have had several freezes here so my fresh toms are done until i can get some siberian plants to size).   my super fussy little one likes all the things in a wrap, just won't eat them together as a wrap.  lol.  she will have all the items that make up the wrap, just individually on a plate.  i got some frozen mixed berries at aldi yesterday, so we might have some of those too.

Woodchip----wraps sound good. Earlier made a smoothie out of frozen mixed berries, banana, and some milk----yum, sort of like a milkshake but not as thick. Might go good with the wraps.

Thanks Michelle , for considering us worthy as entrants & the" Heads Up on the Bakeoff" . But our time is in short supply & loosing a day or so can be caught up with the local stuff ,however the bake off could tie us up for weeks + & being Ugly Mugs we don't want to be on TV. We are entering the Bream creek show  As well as the Middleton show & we will have a stall at both of these for our stuff & Ellie is entering a number of things in these Show competitions.

The shrimp guys came by and I bought a gallon bag of jumbo shrimp and a fresh quart of oysters from them. We took a muffin pan and put a little pat of butter in each hole. Next we put some spinach, some minced pickled garlic, an oyster and topped it with pepper jack cheese. I put the pan on the grill long enough to melt the cheese. I also steamed some shrimp and made them spicy with some Zatarans.

my aunt sent us a box from omaha steaks for christmas.  we had never had fancy steak before, so my whole family was pretty excited.  it included a couple of tenderloin steaks and a couple of sirloin steaks, so we had those last night for dinner while hub was home.  my older daughter actually cooked them since she says i turn all meat to shoe leather.  i had her butterfly my tenderloin so it cooked to well.  she was so funny...as she was cutting it open she said 'forgive me gordon ramsey, for i have sinned'.  lol.  she said it hurt her to have to cook such a pretty steak to full done.  lol.  we had it with home made red mashed, corn and broiled asparagus.   

while the steak was good, i don't think it was worth what she probably overpaid for it.

Woodchip----ha, I have to agree with your daughter totally!! We used to get the Omaha Steaks years ago but then they started not tasting as good( by a long shot) in the early---mid 90's. Haven't bought them since. What is your opinion of the taste now? Ha, maybe ask your daughter what her opinion is, cuz sounds like yours was cooked to death!!
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: woodchip gardener on December 21, 2017, 08:53:59 PM
hey rabbit...you have to understand...my older daughter pretty much gives her steak a light suntan and walks it to her plate...lol. 

i don't have much to go by to compare as i don't pay the crazy amounts they want at the store for the fancy tenderloins. mine tasted good.  i am not sure what else was on there, but i am sure i tasted rosemary.  it was def more tender than if i pan sear one.  (not gonna lie, i kinda suck at cooking steaks.  as i don't mind extra well done meat, i will have to ask my daughter what she thought). usually if we have beef then i get like an eye round or a lean london broil and put it in the crock pot to cook to fork tender.

I know I am leaving some food out , but that is what comes to mind.
These ladies know what a stove is made for and is not afraid to use one .
We played dirty Santa, I won a  6 piece life time warranty plier set, Mrs Crazy Horse won a gallon of peppermint candy & a bathroom towel set.
We all  had a good time .

G'day Bobcat,
 A rich (onion) gravy is like any rich gravy , it is  Thick, unctuous  & flavorful, whereas if they are light, mild  & runny they are more like a sauce. The base note can be varied depending upon what stock is used in the making, & likewise  depending on your choice of spices, etc , so goes the aftertaste.I use some blackjack to darken a gravy for beef dishes & Vegemite at a pinch but the flavor profile changes with the vegie .                                Regards Pete

The wife has gone up to Kansas City to bring our daughter back for a few days along with our new granddaughter.  I am baching it for supper.  In the freezer I have a Marie Calendar Salisbury steak dinner.  So, I guess that's it for supper. Ain't bad, I've et worse....

You know, it's funny since my daughter moved to KC she started calling the evening meal dinner.  Around here, "Dinner" was 'bean time', what you had in the middle of the work day.  When you got home that evening you had "supper".  I may never as a southern Arkansan adjust to this midwestern nomenclature.

Daniel, I am sorry it took me so long to reply, but I have been caught up in a project at my daughter's house and has taken most of my time.

This is something we started years ago to use up some of the leftovers from seafood boils.  We take the potatoes cut them into 1" cubes add some of the garlic minced, onion, other other vegetables  and whatever seafood, shrimp, crab, and or crawfish is left and mix it well and place it in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat it up till warm then sprinkle favorite cheese on top and place in preheated oven at 350° until cheese melts garnish with shallot greens.

We have also done this by just boiling potatoes and vegetables in seafood boil and adding raw shrimp which actually gives it more shrimp flavor.  Either way we really love it.

hub was home for dinner last night, so i made some baked fished filet, mashed potatoes and corn.  i was really happy the little one ate some fish that was not fish sticks..(although to get her to try it, i did tell her it was like a fish stick without the brown outside lol).   

i had a prefab graham pie crust, some cool whip and a block of cream cheese left over from holiday baking.  it wasn't enough to make a cheesecake, so i decided to make a peanut butter pie.  it was pretty easy to make, but omgosh so rich.  i had a couple of forkfuls and i couldn't eat any more.  the hub liked it, but didn't make it through his piece either.  i put the clear plastic lid from the pie crust over the top of it and put it in the freezer.  it is good in small doses, but we won't get back to any of it for a bit.  once it freezes we can cut off little bits and have it as a treat over the rest of winter.

hub is working for dinner tonight, so the little one and I will have something basic tonight.  i think we might have grilled cheese and some fruit.

well, we were running errands yesterday and hub got home too late to make the chicken.  i am really stoked to try it, but now i will wait until saturday when hub is home for dinner again. 

in the meantime, i am going to try some other things he sent that hub is not as fond of.  i can have those for dinner with the little one.  :)

i will keep you posted!

ok. so the chicken i took out when i was gonna make this the other day took a turn and i was afraid to use it.  i ended up having to use some of the prefab nuggets i keep in the freezer for the little one.  i made the sauce, dipped them in frozen, put them on the tray and then dumped the rest of the sauce on them.  i turned them half through and they got good and sticky saucy.   bill gave me some good advice about using garlic and salt instead of garlic salt that it called for.  it turned out awesome!

we had this with some white rice and steamed broccoli!  (it has 1/2 cup of sugar in it so i figured offset with some good stuff. lol)
it was sweet and had a little bit of soy and vinegar after.  it actually tasted like take out food!  i am so proud!

hi tazzy, i looked up bundy rum beef.  the one i looked at was a slow cooker meat.  it did have the rum sauce with brown sugar and balsamic vinegar.  did you do it slow cooker?  or just add rum to a meat and veg pot pie sort of thing?

tonight i dug into the recipes that gopher sent me and i tried the Wet Burrito recipe.  I was not sure how I was going to like it since it has brown gravy in the enchilada sort of sauce, but

IT WAS DELICIOUS!  it is a big project/mess to make since you have to do the meat, beans and sauce all in different pots. the hub loved it, so i don't mind doing the dishes.  we are going to have the rest tomorrow for lunch. 

here are 2 pics.  the before it went in the oven and the after it was cooked.   gopher is 2 for 2 on his recommendations    ;D

Post by: Tazzy Turfer on January 31, 2018, 05:16:02 PM
G'day Chip,
I do cook it low & slow( using the slow Cooker method ) so I can use a cheaper cut like  Gravy Beef or Chuck steak , sometimes it can be Blade steak. Because I make my own Hooch & the cost of rum is not a consideration, I put some of the  Rum on the steak the day before to marinate a bit & use what dosen't get absorbed & a bit  more in the gravy. I never thought of using balsamic in the stew mix ,so I will give it a go, I cheat a bit  by using a beef stock powder on the meat  during marination  to intensify the flavor of the beef against the rum & Dark brown sugar.
                Regards Pete

Mrs Rabbit, I can only hope y'all enjoy yours as much a my wife & I enjoy ours.
It might be "rough eating" for some folks, but we sure do enjoy it.

My wife and I were raised on "country" eating.

There are very few days in a year that my wife does not cook biscuits or corn bread with our meals.
She has done this since we got married and some times we both worked 2 jobs.
I thank The Lord every day for my wife, she is the best wife in this world for me.

I did not mean to "babble" so long, sorry.

Keep up those good posts , I enjoy them.

I could eat a whole pan of cornbread at one sitting easily....ha,but I restrain myself. The meal last night was DELICIOUS....if I do say so myself. Bobby said he wanted leftovers tonight...ha, he liked it ,too!! :D

Woodchip----how did the 2 ingredient dough turn out?

hey rabbit

i finally got around to making it today for lunch.  i made a pizza.  it was an experience.  lol.  you mix 1 1/2 cups of self rising flour with 1 cup of greek yogurt.  i did that first, but it did not look like alot, so i doubled it since i wanted to make a sheet pan of pizza.  i mixed it together with a fork until the yogurt was sort of mixed in.  then i used my hands.  the web hints that i read said you do have to knead it for several minutes until it gets a little smooth.  it was super wet dough, so i did add some extra srf as i went.  the web also said this might happen.  i kneaded mine on a sheet of parchment since i didn't want to have to flour up my counter.  after several minutes it seemed to have come together and felt pretty smooth.  i put a piece of parchment on my cookie tray and then jetted that with cooking spray.  the web said if you don't have a pizza stone, then put some oil on the tray to get the brown crispy crust.  it did work and the bottom got very brown. 

overall, i would say it went 50/50.  my self rising flour was older, so i left the bottom dough a little thicker in case it did not rise at all.  this turned out to be totally unnecessary since i ended up with more of a bready crust than a traditional pizza crust.  it was almost like bread stick sort of consistency with pizza toppings.  next time i know to make it thin.  as mentioned the bottom did brown up so it did hold up when you picked it up to eat it. 

taste wise...it was light and airy but def had the tang of the greek yogurt.  i had put extra spices on the sauce since i read this might happen.  you could not really taste the yogurt when eating it, but if you gave the dough a smell you could def smell it in the dough.  with the extra spices though, it tasted fine. 

i may try this again, but do another web suggestion for it as garlic knots.   i think this would make amazing garlic knots.  :)

Ok, Folks....this is miraculous tho quite unbelievable probably to most of you men who cook so well.  My husband, Bobby, announced he was cooking us some grilled cheese sandwiches tonight. He grills meat outside.....ONLY!! The one time I asked him to put 4 eggs in a pan of water to boil, he cracked the eggs open and put in the water!! I have no idea if he has a clue how to cook grilled cheese sandwiches or not so hope he does not burn the kitchen down. This oughta be interesting!!

Well, folks, I am still alive!! I am blown away....the grilled cheeses were perfect and delicious. Come to find out he said he made a million of them when in college, because it was the only thing he knew how to make...said his buddy taught him how. Now, we have been married for 46.5 yrs and how did I not know that? Well, well,well....he has made a big mistake letting the cat out of the bag. HA,,,He WILL be making those for us again on nights when I am "all cooked out"... and the weather is too bad for him to grill outside. He said he was surprised he had not lost the touch after 50+ years!!

oh rabbit...i am glad you made it!  even happier it worked out for you!  didn't have to cook and the grill cheese he made was delish.  bonus!   ;D

you have inspired me.  i am gonna tell hub he is on cooking tomorrow and see what he says.  i know he knows how to cook, but what he will make is beyond me. 

hub is working tonight, so the little one and i will have something simple.  i was at the store earlier and picked up half a pound of hickory smoked turkey breast that was on sale at the deli.  i think i will have some as a really nice sandwich for dinner.  :)  i picked up a bowl of mixed fresh fruit they had on markdown.  i think we will have that and the little one will have pb crackers to go with hers (she does not eat sandwiches).  easy night!

G'day Guys,
It is an easy make & A little tip is if the pie top is browning quicker than the pie  bottom is cooking I just use a couple of folds of  Aluminum foil over the top to slow the browning {The history of the pie is ,Ned Kelly" was a Bush ranger out here in the 1800s & some Pastrycook started making these down Glenrowan way in Victoria where this Ned  Kelly Lived .It was developed around 1970s and him being a creative sod ,he  named them after Ned..

hub voted down the ned kelly pie thing.  i think the egg part did him in.  i am going to copy the info into my recipe file and see if i can get my daughter to try them with me when she gets home from college.  they sound delish.

last night i kinda winged it for dinner.  i cooked off some thin cut beef strips.  i dumped in water and a packet of mushroom rice from knorr.  once that got done i stirred in the leftover french onion dip i had left in the fridge and a small can of mushroom pieces (drained).  i let it cook a bit longer to thicken it up and served it with a side of peas and some cut up fruit.  i have to say, it turned out pretty good.  it tasted sort of like beef stroganoff but with rice instead of noodles.  hub liked it and ate a bunch of it.  woo!

hub ran to the store yesterday for milk and such.  he came home with a very nice looking piece of steak (sirloin i think, but don't quote me on that) that he found on markdown.  woo!  gotta love a bargain!  i am going to make that tonight with some real mashed potatoes and some steamed broccoli.   i am not sure how the broccoli will go over since i accidentally bought the long stem frozen stalk kinda bag of broccoli instead of the smaller 'trees' that the kiddo likes.  we will see how it goes.  worst case scenario is i cut off the tops for her and i have the stems for dinner.  lol.

you have inspired me rabbit!  i am thinking meatball hoagies! hub is off tomorrow and we have some errands to run.  i can pick up some fresh hamburger and we can have meatball hoagies tomorrow night!  if i bake off extra ones i can freeze them too!

hi rabbit

i got a big pack of hamburger today.  hub was off today and we ended up eating lunch out at an italian place, so hub voted to postpone meatballs for tonight.  i am going to mix them up and freeze them tomorrow so when we decide to have hoagies next week, they will just have to go into the oven.

tonight i made one of the tex/mex crescent roll things.  once it was done cooking, i served it with chopped lettuce and some pico de gallo.

i have to say, not a huge fan.  the filling was sort of soft when the cheese melted in and then the crescent rolls are very soft and buttery.  you really need the lettuce and such to give it texture.  the problem is it is like adding mushy croutons and taco meat to a salad.  we ate some of it, but would prob not make it again. hub did not even finish the piece i gave him.  he just scraped out the lettuce and pico and ate some of the loose meat that had fallen out into the mix.  i am going to freeze the rest in pieces and just have it for lunches while hub is at work.

What else but Leg of Lamb.    ;)

Post by: woodchip gardener on March 28, 2018, 07:32:19 PM
hey mike.  my older daughter is actually cooking easter dinner this year (yay me!) and called to ask if my hub liked lamb.  it was on sale at the store for the same price as a roast.  she got one to make for easter dinner.

any hints on how to cook it i can pass along?  what temp did you do and how long?  how do you test it is done?  do you have to do the little cuts on top? 
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: MikeM on March 28, 2018, 08:03:04 PM
This is how we do them but you can change spice depending on what taste you want.  Rosemary always works with lamb and mutton.  I don't have an ingredient list but the amounts aren't critical.  The recipe I'm going to paste calls for a deboned and tied leg but I don't bother.  What you got at the store is going to probably be a bit stronger than ours but it should still be good.  The biggest thing is to not over cook lamb.  It's best if cooked to around 140 so you have some well done and medium.  Too done and it gets really tough.

This is what I did with this one:


With the tip of a sharp knife, make several pockets at random intervals in the meat.
Put a sliver of garlic in each, roll the meat into a roll and tie with cooking twine.
Mix the Dijon mustard, rosemary and black pepper together.
Rub over the outside of the rolled meat, wrap meat in foil and place in refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees, place the roast on meat rack in shallow roasting pan and insert meat thermometer into thickest part of roast.
Add approximately 1 cup of warm water to bottom of roasting pan, the roast should rest on rack above the water.
Place roast in preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes.
Lower the temperature to 325 degrees and continue roasting for 20 minutes per pound for medium or until meat thermometer registers 145 degrees. If you like your lamb well done, you will need to adjust the cooking time to suit your taste.
Remove the roast from the oven and cover with foil allowing to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before carving.

mike

thank you for going in to such wonderful detail!  i am going to copy/paste your answer into an email and let her know.  i am sure she can adjust the spices as needed.  the overall process is really the important part.   i don't think she has ever cooked it before, so this will be a great help.  i think what she got at the store was the already deboned and rolled roast already. 

thanks again!

Gonna fry us some chicken, and have mashed potatoes, beans, and collard greens. Maybe make some cornbread, if I don't feel too guilty about the mashed potatoes and the fact we are supposed to be cutting back on the food right now!! Ha,the best laid plans....!!! Might have to start that plan AFTER Easter, because the food load for that will be great,too!

Rabbit if you want to cut down on the mess and amount of grease, try oven fried chicken.  Comes out looking an tasting just like fried chicken.  Can't help with the mashed potato thing as I suffer from that myself. 
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: Rabbitproof on March 30, 2018, 09:16:59 AM
Gopherbroke...Haven't tried the oven fried but have heard  folks say they like it. I am so ticky about my fried chicken that I hate to change, though. I do not like thick crusts....just season it, flour it, and fry.... preferably in lard, shortening, or organic canola. It really was not the frying I was worried about us having, it was the carbs. To have potatoes, beans, AND cornbread is a lot of carbs at one sitting. Seems like now I can just smell carbs and put on 5lbs!!!! A shame, cuz I sure do like good ol carbs of all kinds. Thanks for the hint,though....may have to try and see just so won't have to always deal with the grease.THAT would be nice!

we went up to our older daughter's apt. for easter dinner today.  there was so much food! 

rack of lamb
london broil
fresh mashed potatoes for hub and the little one
homemade scalloped potatoes for me and the older one
green bean casserole (reg green beans for the little one)
baby carrots she had cooked in with the meats
biscuits
chocolate cake for dessert

i understand now why she teases me that i am a boring cooker.  lol.  everything she made tasted amazing!    the best part is that we put all the leftovers into little storage containers like little meals and put them in the freezer.  she can take them out and eat them on nights she does not want to cook.  she did keep some of the lamb out to have for lunch tomorrow with some rice and stuff.

we had a wonderful day and i hope everyone had a great meal as well!

tonight we had steak but i made a new recipe to have with it...spinach parm balls.  i have a ton of spinach in the barrels right now to use, so this was a new way to use some up.  i washed and put about 1/3 of a grocery store bag of fresh spinach into the food processor to break it down. 

the recipe i found online had me use a box of chicken stove top as the bread base.  the next time i will use just bread crumbs, as the flavor of the stuffing mix was stronger than both the spinach and parm.   the good news is that since it did not taste strongly like either of those, the little one actually ate some since they tasted predominately like stuffing.  the spinach and cheese was still there as an undertone.

they did turn out very light inside and got crispy on the outside.  they were good.  something to tinker with in the future.  i made a dozen of them and the rest i spooned out into balls into a container and froze.  i will have them again another day.

hey mike

i just put the info up in the recipes topic under gopher's 'unrelated recipes' thread.   the only thing i will really change for next time is either use reg bread crumbs or i know stove top makes a herb stuffing mix instead of the chicken.

last night i finally got to make meatloaf and mashed with corn.  it was delish!  i had accidentally bought the wheat store brand saltines the last time i bought them.  they were so delicate they broke up trying to get them out of the pack and if you tried to put butter or pb on them.  i kept the broken ones to use for when i made the meatloaf.  i smashed them up and they worked great.  i just didn't add any extra salt since they already had them.  i use ranch dressing instead of eggs and it stays moist and has nice flavor. 

tonight i am going to make chicken alfredo with some of the spinach from the garden and broccoli i have in the freezer.

i found a recipe online for easy eclair cake.  eclairs are one of hub's favorite desserts, so i thought i would try it.  yesterday i put it together up until the chocolate frosting.  the recipe said to let it sit overnight before you top it.  today after lunch hub went out to mow and when he came back in we had an afternoon treat.   i was really surprised!  it really did taste like an eclair!  even the little one liked it! i will put the recipe up on the recipe thread in case anyone wants to try it.  we will have the rest tomorrow night after dinner.

i am off to pick some spinach for the alfredo tonight!

We are on low carb----got to drop some poundage in this house. Boring,boring meals but taste ok. No rice,potatoes,bread,pasta,crackers----just meat ,salads, and veggies. Lost 5 lbs in 5 days and have been on it a week.!! Hubby cheats some at work,cuz hard to stay on there. Today's lunch for me will be celery with pnut butter. Am getting on the elliptical some,too. Funny how I stayed hungry the first 6 days but suddenly yesterday I could really have gone the whole day without eating and not suffered. Guess you really can "shrink your stomach"! Tonight will roast a whole chicken and have peas and carrots.

Congrats Rabbit!  That is wonderful!  Good job!  ;D

My younger brother is doing that keto diet and he has lost a ton of weight on it.  Did you try making the cloud bread stuff?  He makes it alot and uses it to make eating all that meat a little more interesting.  lol.   I am pretty excited because he has shown interest in starting a little garden of his own to try to grow some of his own veg. 

Tonight we are having leftovers.    :)

Woodchip-----looked up Cloud Bread-----wow, that is an interesting thing that I had never heard of. Hmmmm....may have to try that just because I am dying to taste it!! We do split an extremely thin crust small organic pizza once a week, and a piece of toast with our high protein(eggs/bacon) breakfast on Sunday morning, so we are not so extremely low carb that we are suffering too terribly much.  I will look up the Keto diet----have heard of it. I have started gaining weight for some reason recently, and poor hubby has needed to drop about 50 lbs now for a few yrs....ugh!

Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: Tazzy Turfer on April 13, 2018, 03:43:53 AM
G'day Chip,
 My Secret to making a  Pav is its  Made from 3 egg whites, A pinch of salt, 3/4 cup of castor sugar,1/4 cup of pure  icing sugar, ( you can just use a cup of white sugar if you need to-but it might be a little grainy ) 1 tablespoon of pure maize cornflour,1 teaspoon of lemon juice. All I do is Scald the bowl & whisk making sure there is no oil or grease residues from other recipes as this will stop the egg whites reaching peak consistency ,Set the oven to 150 degrees C,about 300 , F. Beat the egg whites with the salt till they make stiff dry peaks.Add the sugar gradually a spoon at a time whilst beating the mix to ensure complete dissolution. The cornflour is added next but" I do  put about 1/4 cup of the sugar" in it to ensure the cornflour doesn't clump &Then  fold this in at low speed with the lemon juice. I drop the mixture on to a flat slice, biscuit  or pizza  tray on some baking paper , (preferably non stick) Also ,If you want it to be a particular size( as it does spread,) I  make a ring from cardboard & line this with the baking paper  before dropping the meringue in & leveling it to the size .It gives it a nice flat top for the whipped  fresh cream & fruit . Bung it in the burner for about 30 to 40 minutes check after 25 mins as they can burn if there is to much top heat & let it cool completely before decoration .The outside is like a thin crisp meringue & the inside is soft & sweet  & it just dissapears on the palate, leaving the fruit as the star of the dish. Have a Go, it is dead easy & no one seams to leave any whenever I make it.
    Regards Pete

G'day Chip.
I trust you will have no problems with this pav & gain a nice treat to share with the family.As our growing season is coming to an end & we are having interesting days at the farmers markets with people who do not understand seasonality, it kind of leaves you drained at the end of the markets. We use our spiced cherry vincotto  with our fresh pitted cherries to add a new dimension to  the pav's .If you want this recipe let me know & my Ellie will give you her secrets to it.

rabbit, i have gotten some good recipes from my brother that does the keto thing.  he makes lasagna with zucchini he slices whole to use instead of noodles.  he is also the one who got me into the spaghetti squash casserole.  i was looking for something to do  with spinach and he sent me this

https://lifeloveandgoodfood.com/creamy-spinach-spaghetti-squash-bake/

it is very tasty!  i put more spinach in, but it does not change the flavor much.

hub is working tonight, so i will make soft tacos with all the fixins for lunch today for him.  the kiddo got to choose dinner so she and i will be having mac and cheese for dinner. lol.  i have some mushrooms and will pull some spinach from the yard to put it.   she asked if we can have chicken nuggets with it.  i told her i will have to see if we have some in there.  (i am pretty sure we do).

Woodchip----love anything with spinach so the spaghetti squash/spinach is right up my alley. One good thing about low carb... cheese, milk, eggs in abundance allowed!! I love dairy! Really do need to be adding more variety to our veggies,though. We are getting into a rut, it seems. Will be so glad when the homegrown produce starts coming in here at the farmer's mkts.....and my own tomatoes! Thanks for the recipe.

My poor garden just sits and waits!!  Tonight hubby will cook some hamburger steaks on the grill....I am still not into cooking much at all, but at least I have an appetite now!!

Ate a late lunch yesterday at Paula Deen's restaurant in Pigeon Forge.. Overall was very good. We had chicken pot pie, fried catfish, collard greens(too bitter), black eyed peas, candied yams, squash casserole, some kind of biscuit with melted cheese and garlic in it, banana pudding, and peach cobbler. The banana pudding was made with a real custard base....excellent!! So much food and ended up being supper,too, as we did not eat til 3:30 pm.

"I never met a fried squash I didn't like." - Will Rogers

Okay. Admittedly, that isn't quite how the quote goes, but the sentiment is the same. I sliced up the trumpet squash (aka tromboncino) and added a pattypan squash to the mix. I then coated everything in a little corn meal and flower with a dash of salt and Tony Cachere's, followed by a bath in hot oil. AMAZINGLY TASTY. Of course, you could fry a leather boot with that batter, and it would taste good, too 😉 Two thumbs up for the trombone squash.

Pete... What is a “damper”?
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: Tazzy Turfer on June 15, 2018, 07:59:03 AM
G'day Tangentalstorm,
 A damper is like an olde timers bushman's   bread made without any yeast for leavening, it is made with strong Bread  flour, baking powder, a knob of butter,  pinch of salt this is rubbed together to mix the dry ingredients ,then you add a cup of beer or Dark rum for adults-depending on the flavor profile for the moisture( you can use just spring water if you don't want the grog  flavor if its for kids) Sometimes  I also use onion,Garlic,parsley Chilli,cheese sun dried tomato or anything that I think will complement the main dish it goes with ,My grand kids like my plain damper as a main meal Cooked in a cast Iron  dutch oven on a trivet to stop it burning to a  crisp if you get your timing wrong with too big a pile of coals. When you take it out of the Dutch oven Tap on the base And if it sounds hollow then it is good to go , cut it up, smear on your butter & add some cocky s joy ( Golden Syrup} for a delicious alternative.If .you burn the crust just peal off the black crust if you have a whoops moment the inside will still be OK
  Regards Pete

Mr Tazzy, that sounds like it would be good.
Title: Re: Whats for supper ?
Post by: Tazzy Turfer on June 16, 2018, 03:59:00 AM
Mr Crazyhorse ,
It is truly a  simple thing to do & you don't even need to cook them in a cast iron dutch oven or Bedouri oven .I have cooked damper in the coals & ashes of a campfire wrapped in alfoil  , molded onto a green stick in thin strips & toasted similar to your Marshmallows, even sandwiched between hot rocks that have been in the fire& surrounded by hot coals, You can even cook it in an electric oven but it misses the smoky fire flavor wise. The big trick is to need your damper  properly so it is not crumbly but like a bread dough. Have a strong black Billy tea to drink , fresh churned Butter & some cocky's joy to spread on the damper  & you will be blessed.
   Regards Pete

Last night after I had cooled down it was just some pintos that had been started in the crock at about 5:30am with some smoked hock, sweet peppers and onion, a shot of apple cider vinegar and about 1/4 stick of butter, salt and pepper and a half stick of butter. Cooked on high until about 7 last evening then set to just warm with some cold corn bread.

Almost heavenly.
