What's for dinner?
#94 (In Topic #44)
So everyone, what will you be having for dinner?
Redbeard saidSounds great RedGreyRaven. Do you cook your pasta in the sauce? I hear that the starch from doing so will help thinken the sauce.
No, separate. I lol keeping them separate :3 I have tendency to est sauces on their own too, so
The recipe for baking the corn is as follows:
48 ears cut off cob and put in roaster pan
1 pound of salted butter
1 pint half and half
1 teaspoon salt
Baked at 250°F stirred every 20 min for 1 hour an 15 min. Let cool completely before freezing.
Of course if you were to ask Granny she'd tell you that it must be stirred with a wooden spoon lol. Any old time trained cooks out there , is there a reason for this or was she just being picky? Seems like a strange thing that she actually included in the recipe she handed down.
chicken teriyaki, cheese, iceberg salad, cucumber, red onions, red bell pepper, dash of vinegar and honey mustard. it was bueno
i'll update soon what I have for lunch or share a picture
That was coupled with homemade chicken noodle…we have snow on the ground so a good soup weekend.
What is yalls favorite noodles to use in soups?
I always use the wide noodles but those have a tendency to jump off the spoon. I just use those cuz I can get them in bulk super cheap from the amish stores here. I was thinking of switching to a speghetti type noodle tho from a general grocery store. I think it would actually really improve my soups.
oh also my bread came out quite moist, i pulled it from pan a soon as it came out from oven. Should i let it stay in oven with door cracked so it stays warm and dries out more. or how can i get rid of the moisture?

That leaves me in the kitchen cooking something that adds to the frenzy of their evening!!
I tend to be a person that does not follow recipes - I go with the flow of what I have on hand!! - pull it all together and BINGO a Deal of a Meal!
My choices was:
**2 Scraggy Carrots
** Small Red Onion
** Some Turnips diced - uncooked
** Packet of Tomataoes that looked sad
** 11/2 lb of Minced Beef, and about 1/2 of minced Pork
** Packet of Bacon slices
** Usual array of herbs and spices
** Frozen French Bread…
** Brussel Sprouts and Chinese Cabbage
Dumped the meat into a mixing bowl - tossed in a good dollop of chopped Garlic and sprinkles of seasoning - mixed in well with my hands…
Was feeling a little sad - so I punched the meat as I mixed it !!
Cleaned the Carrots, diced them the same size as the Turnips and tossed them in water to blanch
Cleaned the Onion - chopped and diced fine, tossed that in some meat oil juices to fry down…
Prepared the Brussels and Cabbage….
Drained the Carrots and Turnips….used the veg water to then cook the Brussels and Cabage in..
Tossed the drained Carrots and Turnips in with the frying Onions, chopped and diced the Tomatoes and tossed them in also.. lowered heat to reduce liquid…
Sliced Bread down the center from frozen - easier to do that way… thawed it is all squidgy and a pain!!
Then sliced it across the center (geve me 4 blocks) - took each block, and cut out a wedge of the bread to a 1/4" thick…laid the now formed, scooped out 'Boat' of bread in the bottom of a loaf pan…lined that with Bacon slices…did the same to two other loaf pans…
By then the pan of veggies had reduced its liquid content….so tossed that into the meat mix, and mixed the batch thoroughly together…then scooped dollops onto the prepared bread boats…to about a 1/4" from the top of each pan..
Jigsawed the scooped out bread onto one pan, laid the remaining bread boat on the top of another, and finished of the third with a Bacon top…
Popped all three in the convector oven at 375…for about 35 mins until at least the meat had shrunked - the bacon was a golden colour, and the bread tops a crispy crust…
In the meantime the Brussels and Cabbage was lightly cooked - seasoned with a Orange and Ginger savoury seasoning…drained and tossed in Sea salted butter…
Served as is - the guys consumed two of the three - all the vegetables, and a plate of Indian Sweet pastries!!!
They can do the dishes!!
