What Are You Eating Today?

Recommended Posts

Larry-I wouldn't recommend smoking walleye. It's too soft of a fish. Have you ever tried smoked white fish? It's almost as good as smoked salmon. Walleye is best fileted out and broiled or in chunks with good breading and deep fried. It's the MN state fish! lol

 

Sounds good.

Tuna sandwich with extra everything for lunch.

His eggs were great - I put lots of Tabasco sauce on them.

Ay yi yi! Too hot for me! If you like that, you would probably love them with a few drops of balsamic.

 

Isabel, thanks so much for this advice - nice to know what the potatoes would be like, and yes! definitely would like your recipe for the chocolate cupcakes. I'm not able to eat them, but I would love to impress my friends. lol

 

If you tell me you are allergic or something I am going to cry for you! I keep all my favorite recipes in a binder, and I have to laugh when I open this page - it is covered in drips and fingerprints in chocolate. This is the basic version - good for adults and kids as well. Stays moist for several days. For a more intense, grown up version I add an extra square of bittersweet or unsweetened chocolate, 1 teaspoon of instant espresso, and 2 teaspoons of black cocoa. Makes a great cake or bundt, too.

 

Chocolate Cupcakes

------------------

 

3/4 c. cocoa powder...........................1 1/2 sticks soft butter

5 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped.....2 1/4 c. packed brown sugar

3/4 c. boiling water............................ 1 T. vanilla

1 c. sour cream..................................5 large eggs, room temp

1 3/4 c flour

1 t baking soda

1 t salt

 

Spray pan with nonstick cooking spray. Heat oven to 350. Combine cocoa, chocolates, espresso in bowl, pour over boiling water and whisk until smoooth. Whisk in sour cream. Combine flour, salt, baking soda. Mix butter and sugar for 3 minutes, add vanilla and beat, then eggs, one at a time. Add flour and chocolate mixtures alternately, pour into pan. Cook 20 to 30 mins - depends on pan and size of cupcakes, so the best way to test them is to use a toothpick and dig a bit out of the center of one to see if they're done. Cool in pan 10 mins, then turn out and dust heavily with confectioner's sugar.

Right. None of us are getting any younger.

 

Buy a whole turkey and cook it. Turkey is good and good for you. You will have tons of leftovers. You can make soup, stir fry with fresh veggies, all kinds of things. You can pack it in individual servings and freeze it.

 

I made two big batches of turkey soup this holiday season. The first one was made on Christmas Day at my youngest daughter's request. (She flew back to Baltimore with a frozen container full on Dec. 26th.)

The second batch I made on Dec.29th at my BIL's house, also by request, because they have been hearing the rave reviews of my turkey soup from my wife and kids for years.

I have a deal worked out with my wife. I get 1/2 of the gravy for soup, she uses the other half in a turkey pot pie.

My husband makes the best soups! I could eat nothing but soup.

I am not a fan of cream soups, though. I love broth soups.

I take off as much good meat off as I can and simmer the carcass, legs, wings until it is nothing but bones. Then I strain it, add gravy, carrots, stuffing, onions, celery, beef and chicken boulion (3 cubes each) and italian seasoning mix. Then I add the meat into the soup, diced up and cook for another couple of hours on simmer before adding pre-hydrated whole wheat long flat noodles.

Mine is broth-based. I've never tried to make a creamy turkey soup.

That does sound fantastic. Never thought of stuffing and italian seasoning.

I sort of cheat. I make a very rich homemade broth, but at the end I add one small shot of cream. You can hardly tell it's there, but it gives the whole thing a smoother, richer sort of flavor.

I cook like a television chef. I am trying to cut down on sodium and sugar for 2012.

So far, so good. I usually eat soul food during the weekend and just fruits and veggies mixed with some junk food during the week.

I havent had a cold in 3 years, and my immune system is strong. Blood pressure is steady, and I do not drink any sugary drinks

whatsover. Just water. :)

My soup base starts with virgin olive oil, New Mexico powdered chili, salt, pepper, garlic, parsley, Italian three spice, meat of choice, and lately browned. Meat should be medium-rare, and it will cook off in the pot, but remain tender. Should be cut/cubed to 1/2 tea spoon sizes. Bring to boil 1 TIME, then low simmer for a hour, and it is ready. Veggies should be crunchy.

 

I haven't tried it yet, but I am toying the idea of using an Italian sauce with herbs from a jar. Some of the jar mixes look good, packed with spices.

 

If using squash/pumpkin/cucumber,sweet peas, etc. soft veggies, add them ONLY about 15 minutes before your soup is finished, so they remain firm. This is also the time to add in your rice/pasta noodles, I really hold back on the noodles and let them play a minor role in the soup, but there for maybe once every 4-5 bites. You want 1 veggie to stand out, usually your favorite. You should think of veggies in terms of equal amounts going into the pot, 1 stand out veggie which will be more, 1 minor veggie which will be less. A minor veggie might be slices of mushrooms, bell pepper, roasted red pepper, cherry tomatoes (Forked once, or sliced)

 

I prefer fresh veggies, but canned or frozen are also excellent choices, except you can't give uniformity in size. The red chili (2-4 tbl spn) & olive oil is going to give a rich look & taste that stands alone, and you really don't even need to add tomatoes which sometimes sours a soup. If you do add tomatoes in cooking, add 1 tbl spn of sugar (like Italian sauces).

Fasting's not good for you.

 

Fasting is very good for you if done rarely and with a lot of water.

You should never fast for more than three days in a row, but regular fasting

removes impurities from the body and flushes toxins/fats from the skin and intestines.

I have been thinking of doing some fasting.

Do you do any clear broth or just water?

I only use stuffing that was actually in the bird. Stuffing made as a side dish doesn't work. The stuffing breaks down and acts as a thickener, giving the soup some body without having to resort to corn starch or flour. If you use dry side

 

Mine is broth-based. I've never tried to make a creamy turkey soup.

 

I sort of cheat. I make a very rich homemade broth, but at the end I add one small shot of cream. You can hardly tell it's there, but it gives the whole thing a smoother, richer sort of flavor.

 

I'll give it a shot on a portion of my next batch and let you know. Thanks.

Hey there beautiful. Happy New Year to you and your family. :wub:

Hey there! Hope you have a lovely holiday. Don't talk about soul food - I grew up in Va. so I love it, but up north here it's a lot harder to find. Greens, buttermilk biscuits, sausage gravy, sweet potatoes, fried chicken and fish, pigs' feet, cornbread with lots of honey and lemon meringue pie!

 

Ever have ramps?

  • Hey kfools.. does this help?

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now.
