We missed all that. wind and rain was was all we got. The western part of the state had a few tornadoes.


I admire the caregiver. You can downplay your role but I still know what a commitment it really is.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Nik, oh yeah theres a lingering after effect from garlic. I was talking about eating an entire bulb of roasted garlic, sometimes 2, mashed with evoo and spread on bread. I did this on Saturday but Monday someone still smelled it on me.

Theres an Italian dip; bulb of garlic simmered in 1 lb of butter and 2 sm cans of anchovies mashed up. Its strong so only served in winter. And “they say” if everyone eats it you dont notice the smell as much.

They are somewhat bland but are great with a good sauce. My favorite recipe came from Martin Yan's Invitation To Chinese Cooking. There's a recipe for shrimp & scallops in a Chinese wine sauce. The book is still available. Great book.

Great gobs of goose grease, I loooooove good bread. That is also one of my weaknesses. That is some great looking bread to say the least.

Wooley, I have a tremendous respect for you being your wife's caregiver, that separates you from a lot of other people in this world. My hat is off to you buddy.

Thank you Big Jim.

Cooking and canning is one way I take time to take care of the caregiver, a necessary thing.

fast and easy, most mixing time is 45 to 60 seconds.

You need to make sour dough bread with a starter, there are starter recipes on the net...
after it ferments you refrigerate it. In Italian, we call this ‘the Mother’

You then take some out to make your bread...after your bread is mixed you take
some of the fresh stuff away and replace it back into your refrigerated sour dough stash.

You probably already know all this.^
Yeah Joann I know all that on sour dough just never got off my butt and did it. I even want to try potato rising bread. Starter, biga, and something else I forget all the same but different.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Scallops, I've eaten them once in my life. Can't get them here that I know of. And I know what @Two Knots is going to say. I'm 10 miles from Galveston Bay and about 35 from the Gulf of Mexico and the seafood here is nasty. Last shrimp I bought at the bay was inedible and it wasn't my cooking.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Well, last weekend, for breakfast I made the wife and I French Toast. I used eggs, vanilla, a bit of sugar, some orange liqueur. Pure maple syrup and some Kerrygold butter.

The other day, the cupboards were pretty bare. No eggs, a little bread, two left over chicken breasts that I had oven roasted a day or two before. I had no potatoes but I did have some left over bread crumbs. I try and always have chicken stock in my pantry. Plus, I have better than bouillon (both beef and chicken) in the fridge at all times.

SO.. I made a quick stove top stuffing using the bread crumbs, herbs and spices, chicken stock and some butter. Then a quick chicken gravy using a roux with butter and wondra flour, chicken stock and some better than bouillon for a bit more depth of flavor.

Reheated the diced chicken in the gravy. Steamed some frozen carrots and then made a quick glaze with honey, brown sugar, butter and bourbon.

Dinner that night was hot chicken sandwiches with stuffing and glazed carrots.

Living on my wifes salary while I am filing for disability sometimes is tough. But, we have each other, the pups and beautiful mountains surround us. Life is good.

Next week, we will have pot roast, sloppy joes and may even thaw some steaks. (we bought a cow with some friends and that helps a lot)

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Well here is something I did a couple days ago using only items from our medium term storage.

Supper was all from the storeroom, trying to rotate stuff. Asparagus soup with chicken and canning liquid, potatoes with canning liquid, and carrots without the canning liquid. I added a little white pepper from the storeroom but nothing else. Worked out well. I drank the canning liquid from the carrots, wish I had added it also, it was sweet and a little salty.

I didn't start this thread, I was thinking of another one that I started. This wonderful thread was started by WooleyBooger. Who just can't seem to keep his Bourbon out of boiling water.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Tonight is a Reuben. The wife, step daughter and grandson are up in Steamboat doing some shopping and sledding and dinner.

Rye bread, a slice of swiss cheese on each slice of bread, spicy brown mustard on one side, my Russian Island dressing on the other side, sauerkraut and then the pastrami. (Both the kraut and pastrami were warmed in the microwave for 30 seconds to take the chill off and speed up the cooking.)

The "Russian Island" dressing was a concoction I came up with. A little mayo, a little french dressing, yellow mustard, brown mustard and a bit of pickle juice from a hot and sweet pickle I love.

Grill it with a bit of butter to make it crisp up and then heaven for dinner.

One of these days I will learn how to corn beef, make sauerkraut and try making rye bread again. But today, all but my dressing was store bought.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Tonight I was making breaded pork chop parmigiana when I heard on the tv that it
was National Ravioli Day, so I grabbed a bag of ravioli out of the freeze.

It was good...one pork chop left over the the head knots lunch tomorrow.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Tonight we had a soup of homecanned Pozole with added homecanned carrots, and homecanned chicken plus quinoa and added some store bought chicken stock. With flour tortillas. Still rotating stock from the storeroom.
