Oh, edit, hehe: I grilled a burger and some summer squash on my little Weber hibachi thingy.

   Last night we had pan fried Cod fillets and fresh wild Salmon steak marinated for an hour in a marinade of fine diced tomato, light olive oil, a Tbsp. of lemon juice, salt & pepper, and a pinch each of dried Basil and parsley,  then placed in a foil packet with the marinade poured over the top,  sealed and baked at 375 for 35 minutes.
   For sides we had mashed potatoes w/a little onion and garlic,  and some steamed broccoli & cauliflower floweretts with butter, salt, and pepper.

Tonight was a steak I sliced off a prime rib back around Easter.  Gotta love a vacuum packager!  This one was big enough for both of us plus lunch tomorrow.  Some 'tater salad Liz made yesterday for a football party and some sauteed mushrooms and onions made a fine meal.  Sorry, no pics of the rest of the stuff, but that's a platter, not a plate, the steak is on.

Moe, I fried them up in the cast iron chicken fryer and when they are nice and browned I will toss in a little bit of water and slow cook for half an hour.  Fall apart tender , which is the way hubby likes em. :)

   We just had leftovers,  I'm used to cooking for a big family,  when the kids moved out and there was just the two of us at home it took a while for me too adjust to just how much to cook,  but every couple of days one of the kids or grand kids will show up at dinner time,  so I always try to figure a bit more just in case,  every few days I get lazy or tired and don't cook,  so I call a graze night and we see what's in the fridge that ain't fuzzy, green, or moving,  and that's what we have.   :)
   Last night we found a couple of oven fried drumsticks,  some American chop-soui,  some peppers,onions, and sweet sausage, I had a mixed bag plate,  Pauline had a veggie tray with some Cabot's Sharp Cheddar,  thin sliced hard sausage,  and roasted onion crackers.

  Question for you on the chicken wings,  I don't deep fry much of anything any more,  It's just too much work,  that said,  I do oven fry,  and I pan fry,  I always used a stove top dutch oven to deep fry in ( I got a new fangled deep fryer with a brain,  but it uses about a gallon of oil at a wack, I used it once and put it away),  but I'm getting the sense that your not talking about deep frying,  adding water to a lot of hot oil is not a good thing to do.
  I'm assuming that you're dusting the chicken with flour and frying it in about a 1/2" of oil in the bottom of your cast iron skillet ?
  I love's fried chicken,  but for some reason it never turns out as great as it should, how about walking us through your recipe and method ?
Title: Re: what did you have for dinner?
Post by: WoodsWoman on September 17, 2013, 11:56:19 AM
Nope.. I don't even dust them.  I just put about 1/4 inch of oil at the bottom lay the folded wings in it , fry till brown, flip over, fry again til brown and then throw in about 1/4 cup of water and put on the lid, turn the heat down to low and just let them simmer.  They are not crispy, but nicely browned.  The juice at the bottom is thick and with a tad bit of flour added makes a great gravy.  Hubby likes to put gravy on the meat. 

I'll do something very simular but instead of water added I'll just toss in a can of pineapple chunks and soy sauce and let them simmer that way.   If I have one of those stir fry meal in a bag things I'll toss that in too.   Cover and let them simmer.

That cast iron chicken combo cooks the most tender  meat just set on low. 

I do do a lot of deep frying.  Hubby's crave is home made french fries and chicken nuggets so we have them often.

tomatoes are weird, scientifically, they are a fruit.

culinarily, they can be eaten in application as either a fruit or a vegetable.

from wikipedia:

Vegetable (culinary): any edible part of a plant with a savory flavor.
Fruit (culinary): any edible part of a plant with a sweet flavor,
Fruit (botany): the ovary of a flowering plant (sometimes including accessory structures).

let's not talk about fruit salad in a culinary application, ok?

I like tomato sandwiches with mayo too.  Especially if you add a few strips of bacon.

Post by: Trekster on September 29, 2013, 03:55:21 PM
Tomato sandwiches account for probably 90% of what I do with them in the summertime haha.

The other thing that's good is if you halve the tomatoes, and cover them with shredded mozzarella and some Romano cheese and a bit of garlic infused olive oil and Italian seasoning or straight up oregano and bake them on a sheet tray until the cheese melts :drool:

You can do it in the microwave too but then they don't melt right :(

I managed to crank out the best ever for me Beef Stew.  Lordy it was good..and thick..  and then amazed myself by making edible homemade Buttermilk Biscuts to go with it.   Mmm mmmm...    I let it simmer in a big ol' cast iron dutch oven. 

Pumpkin muffins for dessert.


WW.

   Good on you girl,  There isn't much that can beat a good beef stew or chicken soup for comfort food,  we like our beef stew thick also,  almost gravy like.     :thumbsup:

   We'll have to compare recipes someday.

Its supper at my house but.........

Tonight we had the last wild turkey from this Spring season.  Cooked in the crock pot and cut into small chunks with chicken stock gravy.  Ladled over rice with a salad.  Really good!

Went to the Tilted Kilt for supper tonight with my buddy. On the way there I was treated to a gorgeous view of the moon right on the horizon. Big and orangey.

Started with a Newcastle Brown Ale, had their Fish and Chips meal with cole slaw on the side, and topped it off with a Guinness draft.

It was amazing!

Before leaving for work yesterday my wife suggested we have clam chowder for supper.  Sounded good!  :drool:     I agreed to dice all the potatoes, chop the onions & celery, grate a carrot, dice and saute the bacon right before she got home. O:-)    She was going to put it altogether when she got in, while I took a shower.  :stir: 

Everything was ready to go when I got back to the kitchen! :thumbsup:   Then she went to the pantry to retrieve the clams.....NO CLAMS!   The only grocery store was closed in town and too late to go to the 'city'....BUMMER!  :'(

We're not sure what it was we ate, but we ate it anyway. :shrug:

   One of my favorite breakfasts,  I make drop biscuits with flour and stone ground cornmeal seasoned with a little onion powder and bacon fat,  and make the gravy with what ever is rendered from the bacon or sausage that I'm having at the time.
   A couple of days ago I was out of both,  but there's always a couple of tins of Spam in the pantry  :drool:,  that worked just as well.
   I keep a mason jar of bacon fat in the fridge for making biscuits (bear fat is scarce lately).

   That there is soft gold JB,  it's got so many uses in cooking,  and the stuff never goes rancid as long as it's kept cold,  I've had this jar in the fridge for well over a year now and just keep taking some out or pouring some in ( I strain it through cheese cloth).

Our landlord recently had one of his old chicken houses torn down. He let the wife and I pick out the best cinder blocks and we built a 'redneck' fire pit thingy. Just stacked the blocks in a rectangle and also added a small 'stove' made from stacked bricks as well. It ain't purty, but it works!

Son-in-law gave us some venison strips and we had them, along with baked taters for supper tonight. Saturday night we 'baptised' the pit with some chuck burger patties to break it in. yum!

Just had pizza for lunch.

I made the dough last night, and let it age in the fridge overnight. It really develops a great flavor if you give it time to ferment.

(http://i1238.photobucket.com/albums/ff485/ThePetrifiedwood/PWmain%201/random%20image%20dump/PWmain2/IMG_20140415_100136.jpg)


Here it is ready to go in the oven. I used a "pizza blend" cheese that had mozzarella, provolone, and cheddar in it. The sauce was regular marinara from a jar, to which I added a little fennel seed. It was topped with finely chopped bell pepper and thinly sliced onions, and pepperoni.

(http://i1238.photobucket.com/albums/ff485/ThePetrifiedwood/PWmain%201/random%20image%20dump/PWmain2/IMG_20140415_110108.jpg)

I also brushed the edge of the crust with a little olive oil to help brown it. My crusts used to come out bone white. This is quite a bit of an improvement, and it was a lot crisper on the outside. Next time I will brush the entire crust from edge to edge before adding the sauce. Here it is right out of the oven.

That looks very good , PW !   :)     I made up a dough about a month ago and divvied it up into 8 smallish balls.   Froze them and have really liked just grabbing one ball..thaw and make a smallish 8 inch pizza for the toaster oven.   I too like to brush the edges to brown better.

That's what I'm seeing/reading, too, wolfy  These were actually cut off a standing rib roast (prime rib) I bought back in December when they were on sale for $6.50/lb.  I bought several roasts, cut steaks off, vacuum packaged them all, and stuck'em in the freezer.  As long as I don't lose electricity for any significant amount of time, I'm set for steak for quite a while.  Heck, Liz and I can make three meals out of just one of those big boys.

we've been eating healthy as of late, cooking a lot of fresh food and trying new recipes. i'm even cooking quite a bit now. this is one of my favorites to make, it's called "rick's fancy chicken"

spinach and feta stuffed chicken breast, topped with bacon.

today we had it with stuffed zucchini. sauteed onions, garlic, mushrooms, garbanzo beans (chick peas) all go into scooped out zucchini and baked in the oven with the chicken.

Dinner is still on the way. We had pinto beans and rice with spam for lunch. I basically cooked them as you would red beans and rice. My wife says she likes the pintos better than the red kidneys. It must be her western taste buds.  >:D

Just made a "hamburger bake" for lunch.

This is ground beef, a little onion and garlic, tomato sauce and parsley and oregano layered with a sour cream and cream cheese mix and mixed pasta, though penne or rotella would be fine. Then it's covered with a cheddar/mozzarella mix and baked for 20 minutes.

My wife just told me it is the second best thing I've ever made. I disagree, but I'd sure as heck eat it again.

Let me find the recipe for you...

http://www.food.com/recipe/hamburger-noodle-bake-21363 (http://www.food.com/recipe/hamburger-noodle-bake-21363)

I added a dash or two of oregano and dried parsley, and I used more onion and garlic than the recipe called for. I also used more cheddar and added some mozzarella. I cooked the rest of the recipe "by the book". 350oF for 20 minutes in the oven.

You do need to cook the pasta ahead. But I stopped the cooking a couple of minutes early so that it will finish cooking in the baking dish. This way it can absorb some moisture from the tomato sauce and you don't end up with a bunch of water in the bottom of the dish.

I am sorry to see them go.

I love to hunt turkeys in the Spring Wolfy.  Trying to call in gobblers is as much fun as a guy or girl can have in the woods.  The meat is just like a butterball but with out the extra fat.  They eat good, especially the first and second year birds.  I have been getting a couple each Spring and we save one for the fall. 

Next year I am going to use the trade gun if I can get to where I know its going to go off every time.  ???

I'm doing a chicken enchilada soup today.

Basically it's 3 small chicken breasts browned on both sides in a pot with 1 chopped onion, 2 cans of diced tomatoes (undrained), 1 can of whole kernal corn (drained), 1 can black beans (undrained), 2 cloves garlic minced, 3/4 cup cilantro leaves chopped, 2 cans enchilada sauce, 1 can chicken broth, and a tablespoon each of chili powder and ground cumin.

Simmer it 2 1/2 hours until chicken is flaky and shred it with forks. Then cut up some corn tortillas into thin strips and serve on top of the soup.

Last time I made this there were no leftovers. :drool: And it is really easy to make since most of the ingredients are already prepped for you except for the onion, garlic and cilantro.

Yum.  Quail and rabbit ('specially yours) are great stuff.  I've only seen a handful of quail down here in years.  Hope to raise some good animals when Kelly retires.

I didn't run into any wild quail all hunting season but where I've been there is only a few spots. I bet there should be some up by you on those clear cuts.

Most everybody I've spoken to about blames the coyotes.  I'ld also blame feral cats.  Some people have no sense of animal husbandry.  Nor true wildlife management.

I am going to start looking into chickens first.  Got friends close that are good at it...until the bears break into the pen...  Quail seem quick.

I've got an hour and 40 minutes left on an 8 hour slow cook in the crock pot. I made my favorite chili with beans recipe. It's posted in here somewhere. My MIL says it's the best chili she's ever eaten. We gave her some a few weeks ago the last time I made it, and she ate it 3 times in one week. :D

It's not for chili purists because it has beans, tomatoes, and ground beef instead of chopped beef or pork. But whatever you call it, it is good! The smell from the kitchen is driving me nuts right now! :drool:

Ziggys hasty bean dip:

1 can el cheapo pork and beans
Small squirt of Barbecue sauce
Generous sprinkling of shredded cheddar cheese.

Heat in a bowl in the microwave for 1 minute on high with a piece of paper towel over it to prevent unhappy womenfolk.

Let cool slightly, eat and fart with gusto.

Don't forget the beer run.

Ok, I thought I had posted this recipe before,  but apparently not. This is my crock pot chili. You will need a big 7 or 8 qt crock pot for this. And it has beans so the name is up for debate in chili purist circles.

Anyhow...

2 cans pinto beans drained and rinsed
2 cans red beans drained and rinsed
3 lbs. Ground beef browned and drained
1 green bell pepper seeded and diced
1 red bell pepper seeded and diced
1 anaheim chili seeded and diced
1 serrano chili seede and minced
5 cloves garlic minced
2 28oz. cans crushed tomatoes
1 12 oz. Can beef broth
1 12 oz. Can tomato paste
3 tsp. Chili powder
2 tsp salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low 8 hours or high 4 hours. Start the crock pot on high if cooking low, until it simmers, then turn back to low. Stir occasionally and before serving.

You may need to add salt before serving. Make sure to check. I like crackers on the side, grated cheddar or colby cheese and sour cream on top.  You can add an extra serrano chili, and a couple of chipotles in adobo if you want more heat. This recipe is very similar to one that came with my first crock pot, with a slight tweak here and there. Jalapenos can be substituted for serannos if they aren't available, and if you cant find an anaheim just use another bell pepper.

For variety you can substitute one of the cans of beans for a can of corn.

Tonight we are having homemade fried rice.  It has bacon, water chestnuts, onions, and so forth mixed in the rice.

Here is the recipe

6 strips of bacon cut into 1/2" pieces
1 egg beaten
8 green onions and tops sliced and chopped
a can of water chestnuts
4 cups of cold cooked rice
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
3 tablespoons of Soy sauce

Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp.  Move the bacon to one side of the pan and the egg and scramble it. 
Move egg over with the bacon and add the green onions and waterchestnuts to the skillet and saute' them a minute.  Stir in the rice, add garlic and soy sauce.  Toss until mixture is well blended and heated through. 

I usually have sliced tomatoes on the side with this.

Mom came over for Sunday night dinner. She doesn't eat fried food too often, but she grew up on it. Decided to make some Conch Fritters and cook up some blackened Black Drum that I caught a couple of weeks ago.

For those of you not familiar with Conch, it's a shell fish with a white meat similar to chicken, but very firm. I chopped it up very fine and added it to a mixture of flour, egg, green and yellow peppers, onion, garlic, milk, salt and pepper, and a little red pepper. I then deep fried it in vegetable oil.

Here it is in its raw form and diced up:

(http://i1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag129/yellowyak/02-08-2015-SundayDinner/457a3ac04c368ee3a1f839cb0bad0a4b_zpsea8676d2.jpg)

Getting ready to deep fry the mixture in vegetable oil on my coleman grill:

All fried up. A pound of Conch goes a long way:

Also cooked up some Black Drum:

Made some homemade tarter sauce and served it up with some roasted peppers. Mom really enjoyed it:

It's a little tougher than clams, more firm like that of a muscle. I've not tried it cooked on its own, but I'd bet if you soaked it in milk for a bit and battered it, it'd be pretty tasty.

No tame rabbit here.

Then took them out of the fridge and cleaned up some more, then seasoned and cooked.

Nice big rabbits! :thumbsup:   From the size, I just assumed they were tame......my bad! :-[   I've eaten many a wild cottontail in my day!   One way to harvest a quick batch here, was to wait at the end of the field as the combine was harvesting the last few rows of corn in the field & pop 'em as they emerged.  Doesn't sound very 'sporting,' but it was either me or the redtail hawks waiting on the electric poles for the same opportunity! >:(

We have an abundance of rabbits in my area, both jacks and cottontails. I have read about tularemia as well. The ones I see all over seem healthy, but if I were shooting them for food I would definitely wear gloves until I was satisfied the liver looked Ok.

Heather got the hankerin' for a loaf of sourdough bread yesterday, so we took the sourdough pot out of the fridge yesterday morning, fed it, set it on the stovetop with the oven set to 'warm' and covered it with a dish towel to keep the yeasties cozy.  Tonight she set the bread dough to rise and since there was plenty of 'starter' left for a batch of sourdough pancakes, we mixed up a batch. :stir:    Little dollar-sized, feathers of goodness, so light they almost floated off the plate when the furnace came on. 8)    Since the batter had a full 24 hours to ferment, the sour flavor really came through......absolu te ambrosia! :hail: :drool:   A small patty of good sage pork sausage and a flagon of cold milk on the side, was the perfect accompaniment! :banana:

REAL mashed potatoes, I hope? ???     Sounds great, Marcia.....wish I'd have been there for that! :drool:

  We seldom have real mashed potatoes anymore,  it's just the wife and I for supper most nights,  so instant is a lot easier to make,  but I've got them to a point where you can't tell the difference,  I use Odahoan potato buds,  I mix water and whole milk 50/50 in a sauce pan,  drop in some butter, salt, pepper,  and dried grated onion,  when it comes to a boil and the milk starts to froth and expand I take it off the heat and add the potato buds, then whip it up and let it stand covered for a couple of minutes.
  Before serving I whip them up again and adjust the seasoning for taste,  sometimes I add a dollop of sour cream and some chives and stir that in just before serving.
  Intant potatoes are nice to have in the pantry to use as thickener for gravy and cream type soups as well,  I do like my home fries,  and I love potato and garlic creamed soup,  for that I use the real deal.

Nice big rabbits! :thumbsup:   From the size, I just assumed they were tame......my bad! :-[   I've eaten many a wild cottontail in my day!   One way to harvest a quick batch here, was to wait at the end of the field as the combine was harvesting the last few rows of corn in the field & pop 'em as they emerged.  Doesn't sound very 'sporting,' but it was either me or the redtail hawks waiting on the electric poles for the same opportunity! >:(

  We used to hunt the edges of corn fields in the fall just after the harvest,  sadly there's very little rabbit left in my area,  the 'Yotes got most of them,  and the hawks and buzzards don't leave many either.   :pissed:

Thank you , Moe for telling your trick to make those Idaho Potatoes better.  I do keep them stocked too.  I like to make a simple version of shepherds pie with those packets. :)

When I make real mashed potatoes, I'll boil up a huge pot of peeled potatoes, mash a few of them and the rest go in the fridge for different potatoe dishes during the week.  Starting with country fried and hash browns. :)

WW.  <  Still trying to think on what to make tonight for supper.

  No problem Marcia,  I don't mind left over potatoes,  there's just so many ways that they can be used,  for us we have to watch our carbs and starches,  so usually one large potato isn't enough, two is too much,  Instant potatoes allows me to do portions more accurately.
  I'd suggest you play with the seasonings until you get them where you like them,  by themselves instant potatoes can be pretty bland,  I'm pretty liberal with the salt, black pepper, and butter,  I always add dried onion bits,  other seasoning I use to add variety is a little garlic powder or grated Parmisan cheese.
  Most of the instructions on the boxes tell you to add the milk at the end,  I alway mix the milk with the water cold, usually a little more milk than water,  when it starts to boil the liquid gets frothy and expands, so take it off the heat or it will boil over,  I have my potato buds ready and pour them in the pan as soon as I take it off the heat,  that makes the potatoes alot more fluffy.
  If I add sour cream (really makes them pop) I add it just before serving,  if you add sour cream or 1/2 & 1/2 right away and let them sit awhile before serving it breaks down the potatoes and makes them runny.

  Play with them a little,  when you get the right balance you'll be surprised just how good they taste and how quick they are to make.

WW.  <  Still trying to think on what to make tonight for supper.

  Marcia, here's another favorite of mine that uses instant potatoes as an ingredient.

  Thick & rich creamed potato soup,  start out by fine dicing celery and yellow onion then saute them in the bottom of your soup pot in butter with a little salt and pepper until they are eldenti,  then add chicken stock (can be canned, fresh, or from boullion), if you like garlic add as much as you like.
  When the stock comes to a simmer add some diced or scalloped potatoes,  cook until fork tender,  next add a small can of creamed corn,  when the pot comes back to a simmer pour in some whole milk, again when it comes to a simmer start adding some instant potatoes until the soup reaches the thickness you like,  check it for taste to see if you need more salt and pepper.
  When the taste is where you like it add just a pinch or so of fresh grated nutmeg,  finsh with a good dollop of butter and serve.

  This is a great recipe for those days when it's snowing or raining and the wind is blowing cold,  it's great comfort food and warms your insides.

  Everything in moderation Craig,  but when I do potatoes I like all that crap,  baked, topped with butter, salt and pepper, and a big dollop of sour cream.
  Mashed,  with salt, pepper, butter, and milk or light cream,  throw in some minced onion or chives for good measure.
  Home fries,  pan fried in butter,  more salt & pepper,  onions and bell peppers.
  And there's a lot more ways, all call for all kinds of flavor enhancers.

  Eating spuds plain is like eating bacon that is greaseless and tasteless, or god forbid,  fat free Spam.    :puke:

  Well you should luv me 'cause I'm only tryin' to edicate you younguns' in the ways of the new world. 
 
  First off,  We do eat "fresh" potatoes when whole potatoes are called for for the dish,  boiled, baked, fried, scalloped, or in soups and stews for example.
  But for someone experienced in the kitchen instant potatoes are a time saver when used for mashed potatoes, in meat pies,  or as a thickener for soups, stews, and even some gravies.
  Instant potatoes, for all you inexperienced "cooks" out there,  are real "taters",  they have been peeled, flaked, and freeze dried,  they are not liquid potatoes,  they are simply dried by a method that insures that the food quality and value of the potato is kept intact.
  Instant potatoes are one of those foods that can be dried while preserving all it's good qualities,  yet unlike fresh spuds can be put into compact packaging and that will last and stay fresh for years after whole fresh potatoes have rotted and turned to a slimy smelly mush.
  Instant potatoes,  besides being abused by inexperienced cooks and new wives has found a huge following among some of the worlds best chefs,  and with campers and explorers who have to consider bulk and weight when weighing their food options.
  Instant potatoes can be bland and rather tasteless when prepared as per package directions or when being prepared by someone who doesn't know crap from shoe shine about cooking,  but when prepared by a food savvy person and properly flavored very few people can tell the difference between fresh or instant potatoes,  and by the way,  I've been served some "real" mashed potatoes in private homes and high end eateries that were absolutely devoid of any kind of pleasent taste.
  Bottom line,  there's no difference between instant and fresh potatoes,  both start out being planted and harvested in the same way,  both contain the same nutrients and flavors when they hit your plate,  in either case what makes the difference between a pleasurable meal and a spit it out this stinks experience is how it's prepared.
   
 PS,  before you all go off on another tangent about instant,  take a look in your pantries and back packs,  is there anyone here that doesn't have a package of Ramens,  instant oatmeal,  a tea bag,  how about hot chocolate mix,  maybe a Knor's sides,  Uncle Ben's inst. rice,  I know that some of you have a Mountian House scrambled egg with bacon package stored away somewhere in your trail stuff,  Oh,  and what's with the freeze dried ice cream in your pack,  I'll bet at least some of you guys and gals use those soup bases and mixes that have freeze dried veggies in them,  is there a difference ?

  OK-OK I'm calm now.    :cheers:

  Well, I am laffing at the exchange, as it is just the same as any other thing. Some like & some don't.
;)


  Regardless, I use them on occasion as a substitute for real taters, a thickener & all. I even put some in my pack sometimes. Not too bad when mixed with flavoring, spices etc., & better than packing the real thing on a long hike.
:)


  BTW....I hate raisins, grapes,and any grape product with the exception of Nehi/Crush as a soda & some wines. [<Long back story in that, but not here, this time. ;) Short story is, if you are packed the same thing every school day for years, you may not eat it, but share it with the dogs on the walk to school... the dogs will luv you forever. Even the mean ones.;) ] So, with me, there is a case of not liking the real thing, but only liking a limited number of side products.


 So, I look at it as it's is one of those, "Choose your own path.", sort of things.

  Actually that doesn't sound too bad,  we have a bushcrafters meet in a couple of weeks in one of the State forrests about forty miles east of me,  one of the locals checked out the area on Saturday,  the roads were plowed pretty good,  a few cutouts for parking,  and a bunch of trails cut into the woods by snowmobiles and mushers running their dogsled teams.
  But the woods still have waist high snow,  the few picnick tables on the edges of the woods were just lumps of mounded snow and the fire places were completely buried,  it should prove to be an interesting event,  some of the show & tell planned is forraging for fire making materials, hammock hanging,  and cross country skiing.    :fire2: :coffee: :doh:

  But the weather for the end of the week is calling for a heat wave,  it might even reach the 30's

Fried chicken wings , cauliflower and rice a roni tonight.

Yes WW.  We make a thick buffalo chili or just get a can of chili with no beans.  It is great!  You can also use green chili with pork.

We use potato flakes (or whatever they are called) to thicken soups or stews once in awhile.  If I didn't tell you I doubt you could taste it. 

Real potatoes are my first choice but they are harder to come up with if your just heating up some soup and want to thicken it.

I like instant mashed potatoes when I want a quick and easy side dish. But the real deal mashed potatoes definitely taste better when you make them fresh with butter and milk. It just takes a lot more time and makes more dirty dishes.

There was a rule when growing up.... fried potatoes came with applesauce.  I didn't have any so I chop up apples into a microwave safe bowl.... a pinch or two of sugar and a dallop of butter.  Cook three mins and let sit while the rest of the meal is cooking.  Soft and yummy.  :)

If you want to get fancy with them... toss in red hots and let those dissolve in there with the apples. :)

........and you're going to keep the recipe a secret?   :-X
Here you go Stan! :D

This recipe is adapted from one I found online. The sauce was very good, but the beef and mushrooms were out of proportion so it needed a little tweaking. The amounts here are much more reasonable and will make a better sauce to meat/mushroom ratio. 


Ingredients:
 
1 stick butter, divided into 3/4 & 1/4
1 pound sirloin or tenderloin sliced thin across the grain 
1/2 cup chopped shallots or green onions. Use the whole thing from white bulb to green leaves.
1 package (1/2 pound) mushrooms sliced  thin 1/8" or less. Cut larger slices into smaller pieces.
Salt to taste
Black Pepper to taste (3/4 tsp. is a good start)
Nutmeg (use 1/4 tsp measure, about 3/4 full)
3/4 tsp. Dried Tarragon
1 1/2 cups sour cream at room temperature
1 package wide egg noodles, cooked and drained
 
1. Melt 3/4 stick of butter in a large skillet on medium heat. Increase the heat to high/med-high and add the strips of beef. You want to cook the beef quickly, browning on each side, so the temp needs to be high enough to brown the beef, but not so high as to burn the butter. You may need to work in batches. While cooking the beef, sprinkle with some salt and pepper. When both sides are browned, remove the beef to a bowl and set aside.   

2 In the same pan, reduce the heat to medium and add the shallots. Cook the shallots for a minute or two, allowing them to soak up any meat drippings. Remove the shallots to the same bowl as the meat and set aside.   

3 In the same pan, melt the remaining ? stick of butter. Increase heat to medium high and add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 4 minutes. While cooking, sprinkle the nutmeg and the tarragon on the mushrooms.

4 Reduce the heat to low and add the sour cream to the mushrooms. You may want to add a tablespoon or two of water to thin the sauce (or not). Mix in the sour cream thoroughly. Do not let it come to a simmer or boil or the sour cream will curdle. Stir in the beef and shallots. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately over egg noodles. 

NOTES: 
Any tender cut of beef can be used. Make sure it does not have any fat or connective tissue attached, and slice thin across the grain. Small thin strips, about 1/8" thick and no wider than 1/2" are ideal. You want the pieces about 2" long or so. Much longer and they interfere with stirring the sauce as you cook, and they are cumbersome on the fork when you sit down to eat. 

When browning the beef, you want the skillet as hot as you can get it without burning the butter. If it is not hot enough, the meat will give up all its moisture and will not brown properly. An alternative method would be to grill the beef on a grill outdoors, then slice thin and cook in the butter for a minute or two. This ensures the beef gets browned and the butter doesn't burn, but it makes a bigger mess and adds more time and preparation. If you brown in the pan, doing the beef in 2 to 3 batches will work best so that it doesn't cool the pan off too much when you add the beef. 

You can use shallots or green onions. One bunch from the store is more than enough to get you the ? cup you need. Chop off the roots and the very tips, then chop finely everything in between.  4-5 individual stalks will usually be enough.   

The original recipe calls for "Cremini Mushrooms". I have never seen mushrooms described that way in the regular grocery stores where I shop, but you might find them at a gourmet grocer.  I use regular old mushrooms. Do not buy the pre-sliced ones. They are usually sliced way too thick. Buy whole mushrooms and slice them yourself. Rinse them, pat dry, and slice thin. You can optionally remove the stems. I usually cut the bottom part of the stem off. Make sure to clean off all of the soil from the mushrooms.  Any really large slices should be cut into halves or thirds so that you don?t have any really big hunks of mushroom in the finished dish. You want pieces no bigger than the size of a quarter.

Post by: PetrifiedWood on March 11, 2015, 10:18:43 PM
Ok, I just did a little research and learned about the cremini mushrooms.

The common mushrooms you usually buy in the store are white, button mushrooms. Apparently, cremini mushrooms are the same species at a different developmental stage where they are brown instead of white. Both the white button mushrooms and the brown cremini mushrooms are immature growth stages of the portobello mushroom, which is the fully mature version.

So there you have it, three names for the same mushroom based on its stage of development.

Tomorrow, the Ides of March is my birthday. I've often wondered if my coming was a portent of woe, but since I haven't sprouted horns or a bifurcated tail yet, I think I'm safe.

Tonight my mom cooked a magnificently delicious meal of stewed potatoes, carrots, onions, and separately cooked corned beef.

Truly mouthwatering and so soft I had no trouble digesting it so far despite my stomach problems. I even ate seconds!

Drinking the broth was the icing on the cake.

I'm too full to eat a slice of birthday cake just yet lol.

My onion soup recipe is simple. Tender the onions (2 or 3) in the butter in a skillet. Then add 1/2 cup of beef broth, tsp of worcestershire sauce, qt of water, I grind pepper in mine, salt to taste, I don't add any. Simmer till you're ready to eat. Use a slice of what ever kind of bread you like. Put a slice of swiss or muenster chesse on it. toast it. Scoop soup into bowl and stick a slice of the toasted cheese bread into it. Bam

1 tsp Dry Mustard, 1/4 cup Brown Sugar, 2 tsp Vinegar, 1 can pork and beans 31 oz, 1 can kidney beans 16 oz,
1 can Lima Beans 16oz, 1 can Chili Beans.
Saute Onions, Brown Haburger , Dump all other ingredients in, cook at 350 for at least 45 mins.

Last night we tried the Tamale Pie 2 recipe from Wolfy's huge Camp Cook link. It was really good, but a little on the sweet side because we only had sweet cornbread mix.

We added a little bit more garlic than the recipe called for, and a dash of cayenne pepper and a dash of cumin as well. I like this recipe and want to try it again.

That's good to know.  I've been eyeballing that recipe myself, but haven't tried it yet.....your pictures have kicked me over the edge! :drool:

I love the taste of cumin and garlic, too, so I usually add more than most of the recipes call for.   Lots of people add too danged many hot peppers for my taste, though........I like 'hot,' but not so hot that I can't taste any of the other ingredients, either. >:(
Title: Re: what did you have for dinner?
Post by: PetrifiedWood on May 31, 2015, 06:11:12 PM
This had no hot peppers but you could probably substitute an Anaheim chili for the bell pepper and get great heat without going overboard.

Thanks!

The 1/2 rack in the picture is in the fridge for tomorrow's lunch. The other half is definitely gone! :drool:

I learned through trial and error that I was caking on way too much rub. This time I sprinkled it on and rubbed it in, without leaving a ton of excess. They are the best ribs I have made so far. The weather was favorable too. Warm and sunny and not too breezy. It made for a good 5 hour smoke right in the zone.

I sprayed them with water at about the 4 hour mark, then mopped with some bottled BBQ sauce 1/2 hour before taking them in. They were nice and tender with good bark and a nice smoky flavor. Not so tender as to fall apart, but also not at all tough to chew. (Which I am told is just right.) Next time I smoke, I am going to skip the chicken altogether. It was good, but it takes up valuable space that could otherwise be used for ribs!

Mom was coming over for Sunday dinner and she had requested cornbread. She wouldn't tell me what kind of cornbread she enjoyed most and wanted me to surprise her. She grew up in Eastern Kentucky and is southern to the core. I grew up eating her cornbread and to this day still remember my dad's favorite before bedtime mix of cornbread in a glass of ice cold milk.

A couple of the kids wanted sweet cornbread. I ended up making three kinds.

Back Left: Sweet Cornbread cooked in a cast iron Dutch oven.
Front: Traditional Unsweetened Cornbread cooked in an 8" Lodge Cast Iron Skillet.
Right: Sweet Jalapeno Cornbread cooked in my moms cast iron corn mold pan.
All pans were preheated in the oven and coated with bacon grease.

Mom, son, and daughter number ones  favorite was the traditional, one teenage daughter and her friend liked the sweet best, my wife's favorite was the Jalapeno. I liked them all.

Smoked skinless, boneless, chicken thighs. The darker pieces were on the lower rack of the smoker:

Grilled chicken breasts, coleslaw and baked beans.  I think I mentioned some time ago I bought one of the Lodge Hibachi grills.  These are a little slower than a covered grill but the taste is great and the meat is tender.  It just takes a while to cool off so you can clean it up.

There is a common misconception about food from NM, there is a difference between new Mexican food, tex-mex, and "Mexican food". Tradional new Mexican food uses only one type of chili the Anaheim chili. My dad , who grew up in northern nm did not what a " burrito" was until he moved to California in the late fifties, not that he had not eaten them, it is that he had never heard the word before. Chili here in nm is a sauce, green or red. When chili harvested while it is still green it is roasted and then peeled, chopped and then a sauce is made. Red is traditionally dried and then later rehydrated , and then chopped.

Fried bread, or sopapillas, I think I that is the correct spelling, is definitely traditional nm food.

Today here in the state we put chili in everything from bagels, burgers, pizzas, and eggs, usually green but sometimes red.  If you guys are ever in Albuquerque go to Sadie's, IMO the best nm food in the city, and their salsa while delicious, will remove paint lol.
Title: Re: what did you have for dinner?
Post by: wolfy on March 03, 2016, 10:08:07 AM
Well I'll be.......ya' learn something every day on here! :P    I thought sopapillas were always a 'sweet' type of bread served as a dessert, but now I know 'the rest of the story, thanks to Orbean. :cheers:  I did a search for additional information and found this entry.......

The History of Sopapillas
Sopapillas are a popular Hispanic dish in South America and New Mexico. The deep-fried pastries can be served as a dessert, covered with honey or syrup, or as an entree, stuffed with meat, cheese and peppers.
About
A sopapilla is a crispy, deep-fried pastry. It is often served covered with honey or syrup. The pastry is common in Hispanic culture and is a favorite among many Hispanic cuisines. Sopapillas can be served salty or sweet.
Origination
Sopapillas are thought to have originated in Albuquerque, New Mexico, more than 200 years ago. There are a few stories attributed to the name of the pastries. It is thought to come from the Spanish word ?sopaipa,? which is used to refer to sweetened fried dough, or from the word ?xopaipa,? which means bread soaked in oil.
South American Sopapillas
Sopapillas are popular in Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. They can be eaten salty or sweet. In Chile, when sopapillas are eaten sweet, they are fried and then dipped in chancaca, a black beet sugar, and cinnamon. If they are eaten salty, they can be eaten with ketchup or mustard.
New Mexican Sopapillas
New Mexican sopapillas are made from tortilla-like dough. The dough is fried until it is puffy and a small air pocket appears within the pastry. In New Mexico, sweet sopapillas are often covered in honey or some kind of syrup and powdered sugar. Stuffed sopapillas are also popular in New Mexico. They are prepared the same way but instead of honey and sugar, the pastries are stuffed with ingredients such as refried beans, cheese, peppers and meat.
Facts
Sopapillas are popular in New Mexican cuisines and are served in almost every New Mexican-style and Tex-Mex restaurant. Mexican cuisines doesn?t usually include sopapillas, but have a dish called bu?uelo, a very similar sweet pastry type food.
This tasty, classic dish is popular because of the different routes you can take with it. Whether you?re looking to stuff your Sopapilla with meat, beans, honey, sugar, or cheese, this dish is sure to please your taste buds!

I am well known far and wide for my sopapilla green chili cheese burgers that I make on hunting trips lol. To fry the bread you need 350 degree oil in a heavy pan. I use a deep cast iron skillet.  To make the burgers use sopapillas for the buns. I like a lot of fresh garlic with green chili, the garlic really enhances the chili taste. If you can make the sopas and fry them using lard all the better.

I just ate lunch and you guys are making be drool!  In Texas, we have Tex-Mex which is often not of Mexican origin at all.  Fajitas are purely a Texas dish.  We do have several different chilies available in most Super Markets, though, including Habaneros. I don't mess with that variety.

Made some pulled pork in the electric smoker today. Just a small roast. Came out really good. Lots of leftovers to make nachos. I keep the sauce off the pork itself and only apply it to the sandwiches. That way the meat is still smoky and salty without the saucy sweetness. It makes some outstanding nachos.

Never had oryx before.....did he get in Texas?   I have a buddy that shot one in Africa, but he didn't get to bring any meat home.  He had a full body mount made for the game room in his house.  He also has quite a few other full-body mounted trophies.....2 grizzly bears, a polar bear, a musk ox, 2 cougars, a crocodile, a leopard and a bunch of other critters I can't even remember.  It's a BIG house!

Wolfy, in nm. Once in a lifetime hunt. Here if you draw an orxy permit you get one chance. My cousin has killed two, he got a second because he is a purple heart recipient. Best red meat I have ever eaten.

they're a bit on the bitter side. i cooked them with some bacon, a bit of molasses, and a splash of hard cider. helped mellow out the flavor.


for comparison, i'd say equal parts dandelion greens and spinach will get you close to the same flavor. and dandelions grow north of the 40th... ;)

That's the recipe for the beef kafta.  I just substitute beef for the lamb. We made 2 lbs worth this evening. It was really good. I probably chopped up more parsley that it called for and I chopped up the onion finely as opposed to using a grater.

As far as the tabouli goes, I will have to get back to you on that. My wife made it.

That sounds great Anubis1335. 

Tonight we had, in honor of a long passed Chihuahua named Willie, macaroni and cheese with peas and buffalo hamburger mixed in.  We also had grilled french bread with garlic salt and butter.  Strawberries for dessert.

Willie loved macaroni and cheese with pea balls.  He would become Cujo when we fixed it for him and then tried to take the dish away before he was done.  That little dog has been gone over twenty years but we still talk about him and share this meal in his honor once in awhile.

Tonight we had, in honor of a long passed Chihuahua named Willie, macaroni and cheese with peas and buffalo hamburger mixed in.  We also had grilled french bread with garlic salt and butter.  Strawberries for dessert.

Willie loved macaroni and cheese with pea balls.  He would become Cujo when we fixed it for him and then tried to take the dish away before he was done.  That little dog has been gone over twenty years but we still talk about him and share this meal in his honor once in awhile.

Was yummy!

Yall are great furbaby parents!  I do love me some mac n cheese w/ hamburger in it!  Willie had great taste!

Gluten-free peach pie baked in me deep cast iron skillet....

(http://i1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah141/DuirOnnCrataegus/Cocaireacht/CastIronPeachPie_zps1rssgwaw.jpg)

(http://i1379.photobucket.com/albums/ah141/DuirOnnCrataegus/Cocaireacht/CastIronPeachPie1_zpsjxxeq71y.jpg)


Crust made from buckwheat flour, brown rice flour, oatmeal, 3 medium eggs, honey, water, olive oil, and some cinnamon and nutmeg. The filling was made from locally farmed peaches that I purchased near Caledonia, MO. They are smaller than the commercial stuff at most stores, but they turned out to be delightfully sweet and juicy. All I did was slice them up into small chunks, squish them in a bowl, and then I added some honey and a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg. In the oven for 1 hr at 325 F.

The pie was large enough for 2-3 people, so I offered a slice to a Forest Service timber marker who was temporarily sharing my accommodations. We both agreed that it was the best peach pie either of us had ever tasted. And the house smelled sooooooooooooooo wonderful :D

Here is what we had for dinner tonight.  A venison roast that I smoked today.  Came out pretty well considering that I am the cook.  Nice and juicy and pink inside.  Took it to 145 degrees and the last hour was in aluminum foil.  The bacon made a good addition to it.

Los cuates, really, los cuates, I am shocked. Communism, blasphemy I say. Just kidding, los cuates is very good. You need to try the rellenos burrito from Garcia's.

If you are ever in Albuquerque I will drop off you, my mom, my girlfriend, and my brother at los cuates and will pick you guys up after eating at Sadie's. Lol.

I did not know there was a los cuates in Rio rancho, I do remember for a long time there were two los cuates, basically across Lomas from each other, the hole in the wall on the south side of the street and the nicer one on the north side next to Monroe street. Pm me your phone and if available it would be my honor to buy a fellow bushlore brother a new Mexican meal. Even if it is at los cuates, lol. As far as the smiths grocery store goes there are some real weird people in that area.

I put this in the topic,  "What's for Supper?"  (http://bladesandbushlore.com/index.php?topic=4458.0) .
since I couldn't find this one right away. After a bit of searching I found this one again, so there is a duplicate in the other topic...  Maybe a merge is in order?


  Anyway...


Chuck roast made in the pressure cooker, came out fine. Mashed potatoes & Brown Mushroom gravy made from the drippings. Carrots & wedge cut potatoes with onions as a side, even though I did the mashed taters. Put the meat on some buttered bread slices with the other stuff to the side & smothered in the brown mushroom gravy, just like a "Beef Commercial" plate from the old days...
:thumbsup:

  A good oldtime type meal I have not made in a long time... Worth the mention, IMO.

MMmmm good!

Just got home from visiting my brother in the hospital, so it was two slices of homemade sourdough bread, some ham leftover from Easter with Jarlsberg cheese on top.....popped into the microwave and in 26 seconds it was supper.   Two fresh-baked molasses cookies from the cookie jar and a glass of cold milk for dessert.

Good 'nuff for tonight. :shrug:

I haven't smoked anything for a while, but today I put 2 racks of St. Louis cut pork ribs in the smoker and I am doing the 3-2-1 method. Smoke 3 hours, then take them out, baste and foil wrap for 2 hours, then take the foil off and baste and smoke for 1 more hour to firm them up.
