I have to take part today..

Last night my husband cooked a pork roast with garlic, potatoes and cooked in a teryaki sauce of his doing.
It was awesome. It was also my lunch today : ya bet I made da people at work jealous :P :P

And on my side I actually prepared a pear jam which I tasted this morning: really yummy :D :D :D :D. Kind of proud of myself as it is the first time I actually made one :) :). And it tastes almost as good as my grandma's (not quite as good but she is a master jam maker and she used to do it with the pears of her own garden so ;))

It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through

Last night I made Chili Cheese Tortillas for my hubby and I for dinner. Nothing fancy but they are filling. Something we started eating when the finances got tight and we could not afford a lot of food. But chili and tortillas are fairly inexpensive and we always have cheese around so we made them and liked them a lot. Sometimes I will just have a bowl of chili smothered in cheese and then dip corn chips in and enjoy it that way.

Tonight I work late again and Ryan promised to go get pizza so I expect it will be ready when I get home. I don't know what kind he will get. I know they have a new one out with all kinds of bacon on it and he was interested so perhaps.......

Looks like everybody's having pizza. :P Me, too, today.

Tomorrow there will be teriyaki salmon, and on Sunday it's Chicken Kiev. (Both bought from a deli, because this weekend, I'm all too busy to cook anything myself.)

Chicken and dumplings. . .that brings to mind a controversy. During this last year I FIRST had the noodle-like dumplings. Before, any dumplings I had were more like steamed biscuits.

Is this a regional thing? I know very little about the differences, and I would welcome comments on why the difference and any recipes people have lying around.

Germans make a 'dumpling' called spaetzle. It's a thin dumpling batter that is dropped into boiling water through a sieve, colander, or a metal grater creating noodle-like dumplings.

SOME people use regular noodles and call them 'dumplings' but .. spaetzle is chewier/hardier than a noodle. It's definitely NOT something that is rolled out like a noodle.

I believe I had spaetzle one time, but the "dumplings" I had this year were thicker, longer. They were about the surface area of a wide egg noodle, but at least four times as thick and much softer, even when cooked.

I am making myself hungry. Later.

CR... A Monte is soooo simple.
Make French toast batter... Egg, vanilla, milk...
I prefer thick bread, but others prefer sourdough, :P
Three pieces of bread on the griddle like you were making French toast.
When you turn them over, place ham and your choice of cheese on one slice. (I usually use Swiss)
Turkey and your choice of cheese on another. (Cheddar here for me)
Put the third piece on top of the Ham and cheese part then flip the turkey part onto that.
Cut into quarters and if you want, shake powdered sugar over it.
Some people also drizzle syrup over it.

I have a pot roast with baby carrots and Yukon Gold potatoes cooking in the crock pot. :D
Dinner's going to be yummeh.

I haven't made spaghetti/spaghetti sauce in ages.. and we used to have it all of the time.. so.. I think that is what I'll be making today.. a vat of spaghetti sauce (I'll freeze some for quick meals later).


I don't know if this fits in the 'foodie' thread but...

I have been making my own dog food because whatever was in my poor little Pippin's food was destroying her health. I was buying (what I thought was) a good brand.. Nutro Ultra.. but she was having joint problems (which at first I assumed was just part of her having bad joints) then she began itching and licking incessantly.. and last.. eating soap! She would wait for one of us to come out of the shower & go in to see if we'd dropped any soap! So I did a little research & started making my own dog food. I spent several hours making it, but now I have individual serving sizes frozen to use for a couple of months now. She's been on this new diet a couple of weeks and all of the problems have stopped.

Haven't had much interesting stuff going on on the food front lately, I might take a cooking class soonish......just because. And I bought a new cookbook from a chef I really like, Ming Tsai..........figure I don't own any cookbooks actually, and his restaurant is very good, so hope to try something out of that soon.

Our vet just advised us to give our dog "people food" and as she started to not be able to digest much, then we started giving her easy to eat baby food and mashed potatoes. He said it was much healthier then some dog food brands, which are essentially junk food more or less.

I haven't had pizza in a while, which is a bit of crime in a town with so many authentic Sicilian's and their corresponding restaurants :D

My favorite would have to be roasted red peppers and black olives........so good.........

There are a few things dogs cannot eat. Onions, grapes, chocolate, raisins, rhubarb, alcohol, too many spices, etc.. and there are a few things they can eat, but they cannot digest.. like grains. Many dog foods are full of corn and they cannot digest corn so it's just a filler. They get no nutrition from it.

Dogs are mostly carnivores and so a large part of their diet should be meat.. but they also like carrots, pumpkin, squash, sweet potatoes, eggs and small bits of apple, cheese, etc..

I think I have been very fortunate, all doggies I have ever owned could eat anything at all and never get sick (well except lighted candles :P ). I had one doggie that never had dog food. I just made my portion and then took out 1/4 of what I was eating and cut it up for her. Made it easy and also more affordable to have her. She never had a problem and didn't seem to turn her nose up to any of it.

Portia. I too had the noodle type of dumpling in Virginia. But also my family in La serves up the noodle type, but my mother always made what I consider traditional dumplings...the doughy drop kind. When they are made right, they are light pillows of loveliness.

I did make chicken and dumplings on Saturday. Very yummy and I froze the uneaten chicken part of the "stew". Then last night I made some hunters chicken from the bits of the rotisserie chicken that I didn't use in the stew.

I love a monte cristo sandwich too. I don't know where around here one could even go to get one, unless you make it at home.

Pizza. I like mine loaded up with everything but anchovies. And the more cheese the better.

Hope everyone had a delicious weekend!!

:D

Mr. Portia, Jr. makes special dog food for their Corgi and Daxi. It is (IIRC) ground turkey, green beans and. . . can't recall.

I have always fed dog food, usually better than average quality, and never had problems, and they all lived to ripe old ages. My current dog gets Pedigree Adult, and whatever she can scrounge, out on the lake bed (I DO NOT want to know!! :Q :Q ). She has thrown up once or twice after eating grass. She licks our plates, after we scrape them a bit, and is highly offended if she is denied this right. She is 9 1/2. The vet said that we should keep doing whatever we are doing.

Dogs differ, I am sure, but I do not know how I would handle a picky eater.

rwhen.. I loves Chicken & Dumplings. But what is hunter stew?


Our dog is NOT a picky eater. She'll eat almost anything. But what we were feeding her was making her unhealthy and so.. we had to do something. portia, I feed Pippin ground or minced meat, about 80% and the remaining 20% is veg/fruit/dairy/egg/ground flaxseed. Making the patties up ahead of time makes it convenient.

I wonder if dogs eat grass so they WILL throw up?? I mean.. when they have eaten something that makes their tummy hurt?

Rose, that is my understanding. If a doggie eats grass, not just a bite or two, but really goes after it...they need to toss.

Hunters Chicken. Is a recipe that I got out of my Vincent Price cookbook years and years ago. It is similar to chicken cacciotore. But has a heavy red wine stock as well. I love the stuff. I will probably have leftovers from that tonight.

We (Brother Jim and I) once had a dog named Doobie. This dog would eat anything crazily. Like he never ate in a day. We had him checked and Vet said there was nothing wrong. But I am talking that once I was passing over one of those nuked burritos that you get in plastic from a convenience store and the dog intercepted it and swallowed the thing about whole, wrapping and all. Once on my birthday, a group of friends did a surprise party for me....when they knew I had pulled up, they lit the candles and turned off the lights. When I came in...SURPRISE...the dog was on the table eating the cake, lit candles and all. That did not stay down.

:D

Hey portia!! I do know many folks who have to do something special for their doggies and mostly they are pure bred dogs. Some have sensitive stomachs, some have sensitive skin. I suppose when we love our pets we will do what we have to.

Hunter chicken sounds amazing.. but whenever you mention your Vincent Price cookbook.. it makes me smile.. :D

On Doobie :shock:

Pippin is not a pure-bred.. she's a West Highland white terrier-Poodle mix from a puppy mill. She was very poorly bred and has a terrible under-bite and she has a lazy eye, but she's a good dog. Maybe some of her nutrition problems come from the poor breeding in that puppy mill and the poor mother dog who was probably worn out. :(

A market/butcher a few towns over from me sells "dog burgers" in their frozen section, they are basically very very cheap cuts of meat specifically for being given to dogs. Good idea I think.

I had a very strange dog. Whenever we had pancakes for breakfast, we had to make him one. The nutty pooch, when we gave it to him piece by piece, he never savored it. He just inhaled it.

I agree, Rwhen, I'd like anything on pizza except for anchovies. I simply hate those things.

You've got me thinking of hot dogs now. And I know a place (Steak'n'Shake) which now serves Chicago-style hot dogs with all the trimmings. Scrumptious!

Tonight we had Shrimp Fried Rice and Pork Teriyaki!! YUM!!!!

Rose you are right about the dog food thing. Most foods for animals use a lot of corn and other fillers that have no nutritional value for them. A lot of dogs are getting allergies to such things as many people are to foods with so many additives. Natural Balance is a grain free dog and cat food that uses things like sweet potatoes and rice instead of all the fillers. It is considered an Allergy Formula that seems to have much fewer problems. Also there are foods that also contain Glucosamine and Chrondointon as well as MSN for their joints. Large dogs such as shepherds and larger dogs seem to be prone to have joint problems but they can be controlled and even some of them stopped by including these in their food formulas specifically for these dogs.

That issue interests me. The red meat vs. other meat distinction.

To me, animal flesh is animal flesh and if I were inclined that way, I would avoid it all, including fish. Too much beef might cause issues related specifically to beef, but otherwise it is all the same to me.

I am a carnivore, though I have been trying, recently, to increase vegetables.

Wilko brought home some home-grown apples a wee while ago and as a result I've been doing some baking. I made apple cheesecake a few days' ago. It turned out all right, although the base was really thick. I'd have preferred it to be about half as thick and thus could have put more apples in the cake. Next time I make it I'll halve the biscuit base mixture and probably add a bit to the cheesecake mixture. It does taste nice, though. :)

I'll post a recipe over on the Cooking Guild when I get home. (And I think I'm due to post another recipe too.)

Dumplings as far as I'm concerned are like these which are cooked in the stew. At least, that's what British dumplings are like (unless you are talking about clootie dumplings, which is a Scottish dessert :D). I didn't realise there were so many different types of dumplings - it could certainly cause some confusion!

Hey heliona!! :D Good to see you.

This is what I think of chicken and dumplings should sorta look like. But some places it looks more like this which is more like a pasta, than a drop dumpling. Either way they taste great...but I prefer the first type.

Apple cheesecake!! YUM.

:D Tonight I am picking up some mexican food and taking it home.

portia. I am most certainly a carnivore. All the way. And PIG is my first choice of meat to sink my teeth into.

We have a 5 guys here and Brother Jim says they are greasy. No????

To me, animal flesh is animal flesh and if I were inclined that way, I would avoid it all, including fish. Too much beef might cause issues related specifically to beef, but otherwise it is all the same to me.

I am a carnivore, though I have been trying, recently, to increase vegetables.


It's more a health thing for me fwiw.

Maybe when I am out on my own I'll be able to go vegetarian, as I will be easily able to control the groceries.

I don't really eat pork either, just don't like it. And I'll be honest, I actually have a thing where I really like pigs and cows. I think they are adorable :D

Rwhen and Heliona the fluffy ones you showed of the dumplings is like the ones I grew up calling Dumplings. They are dropped dollops of dough dropped into a boiling pot of chicken noodle type soup or something of that sort. My mom always swore she made lousy dumplings but I know nothing else and I love them!!!! :P YUMMY!!!

I am not big on Beef or pork. I love to eat chicken or fish or shrimp or crab meat. I am not big on red meats and never have been. I also prefer white meat when it comes to chicken or turkey. I just don't like the fatty taste of dark meat.

Tonight we had Shrimp and Pesto Ravioli's!! Oh man were they good!!! Got them frozen at Costco. I am so glad that we have enough for three meals.
