Ask Boudreaux, or Missy that would be the best bet.   I will send him a txt, because he may not have seen this post.

Chip I think I would use that good vanilla  ;)  Or maybe orange extract to get a little more citrus flavor in the pie.  Chocolate chips instead of nuts?  It is more like a bread than a pie I think an I have made it a couple of times.  I will say I looks like a million $'s an maybe a dollop of whipped cream, or dream whip.       

Your spot on with the pineapple casserole would be really good warmed an served over ice cream, but my experience with it is that it gets eaten with dinner. 

Brussel sprouts are not for everyone, an it is really unusual salad, very chewy like kale, so if you have a kale eater in the crowed I expect they would like it. 

Before I became a gardenerholic I used to spend a lot of time looking at recipes, an I have a few hundred tried an true recipes in a file.

I am going through the same thing.  The last couple of days I have been changing from one cell phone company to another so I have to set up the new equipment which requires every site that I use to have the password put in.   I looked at a password program an I watched the video about how to use the program an it is complicated too.  It is probably the best way to handle all the passwords but so far I am not convinced.  Does anyone have a favorite?

Chip see what you have caused me to get all excited about recipes again.   This pineapple recipe can be used as a side dish or dessert, an like the cranberry recipes can be made the day before.   I have made this several times over the years an it is a crowd pleaser.   
I think I am done now.

If you are looking for a different salad or a way to incorporate Brussel sprouts into your menus this one fits the bill.      The last time I made this I should have tasted it before serving because the family thought I had left out the sugar but I know it was put in the dressing.    You can be sure that no one else will bring this salad to a pot luck.

Here are a couple of ways to use cranberries, an I can tell you that I have made both recipes an they are very good.   
The dip calls for jam, but or?Angel marmalade is what I recommend.   As for the crustless pie it is more like a bread than pie an it is a little tart, which I like. 
The dip is good with crackers or bagel chips, an toasted bagels for brunch.

Chip my grandma used her hoe on snakes an kept chopping until it quite moving so it usually wound up with snake tenders in the garden. 
Rabbit if a snake fell on my head it would only do so once an it would have gotten the grandma Haas treatment.  We only seem to have black snakes around the farm.

Ksp they close a lot of the campgrounds in Yellowstone shortly after Labor Day so donít wait to long after to visit.  But your spot on about a lot less traffic.   The last time I was there I took the tour of Ol faithful inn an it was worth while.  They explain one of the best views of Old Faithful is from the deck over the inn entrance an wow what a view.  One of my favorite spots in this world.

I had the pleasure of eating lunch at Robís place today an one of those tamales found its way to my plate.  Da man can cook!  Also had a dish of gumbo too.

DB it sounds like you had a great off the beaten path vacation. This great country has so much to see an do and to discover that they have no desire to travel anywhere else.

I didnít know Vince was so easy to entertain cause we could have probably found some fire ants in the state park!   I bet he is trying to get his internal clock set back to go to work again!   

Happy Hour / Re: Line array speakers and sub woofer build
« on: November 04, 2017, 11:28:20 AM »    This would be a proper test of your system. While in the service I bought a reel to reel deck an a 120w amp with speakers to match an if you cranked up the base you could snuff out a Zippo wind proof lighter place in front of a woofer.   When I looked up the spelling an got the video of the song I had my 20 year old car speakers pumping out this song.  It has been to long since I have heard it.   Enjoy.

When I was growing up the whole family got together for dinner an the women would make homemade egg noodles.  Also they would make date pudding which is very sweet or persimmon pudding if the kids had gathered enough persimmons.  I donít have any recipes as I was just a kid.   Oh the noodles were made with broth from the turkey, an was always eaten piled on top of mashed potatoes.  Dinner always included lima beans, sweet corn, green beans, an cowlslaw plus brown an serve rolls, a big turkey an dressing made like you said.
As a footnote in later years the home made noodles gave way to frozen egg noodles from the store.  We were big eaters as only teenagers could be, an I have fond memories of those meals.

I am with you Rabbit.  Fried, poached, boiled it doesnít 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.

General Discussion / Re: Wow I like this way of baling hay........
« on: October 25, 2017, 05:00:20 PM »
When I was a kid there was a papermill in town that used wheat straw to make the paper, an my uncles baled the wheat stubble.  They had an elevator that attached to the side of the truck, so there were no one throwing bales up as it was to high, but there were always 3 or 4 men working on the truck stacking 90lb bales 7 high as I recall.  Since us kids were to small to handle bales on the truck they had us rolling bales from 2 or 4 rows away into the row that was being loaded.  So as a 9 or 10 year old we got the occasional ride to the mill, an a stop at the root beer stand to get a 1 gallon thermos jug filled for the rest of the crew.  Rolling a 90 lb bale was hard work for a little kid.

I am going to get my fresh & saltwater license this year, an I will be right on the water of Lake Peigneur.  I have always liked to fish but I am one of those that buys more bait & tackle than the fish I do catch would ever come close to being equal, so I need instructions.  I have never used a set line so i need instructions for that too. 

For those that are camping in Chicot SP.  it is spectacular as to what I have seen so far.  I drove in yesterday an like most state or federal parks they are unique.  I went exploring an meta couple that fishes the 22,000 acre lake.  Brent, LSU an Vince are coming an we have sites next to each other in the North Campground an I am in 343.  I am thinking of buying my fishing Lic just to flog the water 💦 n my spare time!
