Recommended Posts

Today's Special:  Portuguese Soup..........................very easy to make

In 6 TBS of olive oil saute' 2 finely chopped medium onions and 3 tsp from jar of wet minced garlic

When just browning add in 1 Lb sausage of your choice sliced in 1/3 in slices and continue to saute' about 6-8 min. (I like Meyers' Elgin, Tx. Smoked Sausage)

Add 2 cups water, 16 oz. catsup (I use Heinz) and 2  32 oz. cartons of beef broth and 1/3 to 1/2 cup vinegar............this will be all the liquid you need.

To this now add about 1/2 of a chopped cabbage of medium to medium large size, 1 regular can of kidney beans (drained) and 12 small red potatoes cut in 1/2 to 1/3

Let it boil then turn down to a medium boil for about 35-40 minutes (test the potatoes to be sure)

 

Dip out whatever amount you are hungry for and enjoy. This stuff is yummmmmmyyyyy!😋

I always have a suggestion for all the cookie and candy makers. Buy whatever nut you like, make whatever cookie/candy you want. Bake the cookies/candy 

and eat the nuts as a snack during games. Yuck nuts in cookies and candy.🤢🤮

 

BTW next game I will put in Old Aunt Odie's famous New England Fudge recipe. It has no nuts to ruin it and is the best damn fudge you will ever taste in your life.😋

Bet you were waitin' for dear ole Aunt Odie's New England (R.I.) Fudge. It keeps away coronavirus , but kills you with a coronary. Very addicting.

 Use a buttered (use a stick to coat it) 9 X 9 glass pan to pour the following once you have completed the process below:

4 Cups sugar

4 squares Bakers Unsweetened Chocolate

1- 14 oz can evaporated milk

Cook that in a deep pan and when it starts to boil add 1 stick real butter and keep it at a medium boil while stirring constantly so nothing burns on the bottom.

After 10--15 min. drop about a 1/4 teaspoon of it in a small bowl of cold tapwater and see if you can form a soft ball with it. Keep doing that until you do that easily.

When it gets to the easy soft ball stage remove it from the heat add it two really heaping Tablespoons of marshmallow cream and 1 teaspoon of real vanilla extract.

Sit down and watch football while you continue to stir the cooling fudge until it starts to semi-set. You will need to put it on a hotpad in your lap because this takes

15-20 minutes usually. The way you know it is starting to set is to dribble a spoonful with your stirring spoon across the pan of cooling fudge. it it starts to keep the ridge 

you pour across it, then it is just about ready. Beat it another 100 stirs and then pour it into the buttered glass pan you prepared first. Within an hour you should be able 

cut it into pieces. Do this every day for a month and you will be able to reach 911 with no problem at all.

 

BTW it's a family secret a la Whitey Bolger (Johnny Depp)   LOL! 😱☠️😂

Ummmmm STEAMIN' TATERS 'n' BEANS an old Southern classic. This version is from Mr Food but it has been done for many years by others.

One of my grandmother's favorite dishes. Just 5 ingredients and done in no time ! An old GAMEDAY favorite that I might have posted a few years back for a budget friendly meal anytime.

Sometimes simple is best...like here we've got fresh green beans and red potatoes boiled up with a little salt pork. STEAMIN' TATES 'n' BEANS is a Southern classic that combines great flavor with ease -- our favorite combo! From Mr Food.

SERVES. 6. COOK TIME. 45. MINUTES

✓  What You'll Need

1 (2-ounce) piece salt pork, (see note)

1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

12 small red potatoes (about 2 pounds), cut in half

2 teaspoons salt

✓  What to Do

In a large pot, combine salt pork, green beans, and pepper with enough water to cover. Place potatoes on top and sprinkle with salt. Cover loosely and bring to a boil over high heat.

Reduce heat to low and simmer 30 to 35 minutes, or until potatoes and beans are tender. Serve in bowls with broth.

✓  Notes

Three slices of raw bacon will work just as well as salt pork.

In the South, they call the broth "pot liquor" and serve it with plenty of cornbread for dunking. Here's one of our yummy cornbread recipes for you to try!

TEXAS CORN BREAD  from Mr Food to go along with his Steamin' Beans 'n' Taters.  Perfect for GAMEDAY or Sunday or anyday, delicious !

We love the Steamin' Beans 'n' Taters but they are better with corn bread !   SERVES 12 in 35 MINUTES.

Here's a prize-winning recipe that nobody can ignore and everybody loves. It's not the typical corn bread. It's a pudding-textured corn bread that we use as a side dish 'cause it's so moist and rich. Sure is novel!!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cups self-rising cornmeal
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (17 ounce) can cream-style corn
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients.
     
  3. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and bake 20 to 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cut into serving-sized squares.
     

Notes

If self-rising cornmeal is not available, use a mixture of 3/4 cup flour, 3/4 cup cornmeal, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 tablespoon baking powder; it will make 1-1/2 cups self-rising cornmeal. The original recipe calls for a stick of butter to be melted and poured evenly over the warm bread before serving. If that sounds good to you, why not give it a try?!

Texas Pecan halves sounds delicious.

If we had jalapeno peppers at home I'd try those for an appetizer today haven't had them in a while.  I used to buy the frozen ones and heat and eat but these are going on the menu for our next shopping trip.

Today's GAMEDAY meal is going to be grilled smoked sausage on big buns and the usual go alone like olives, dill pickles, chips with spinach dip and whatever else we dig up.

GO BROWNS, no skyline chili today.    :lol:

Every time that I see that recipe I get really hungry for it, my wife too.   You can smell it and almost taste it...... reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen who was the best cook I've ever known.

So simple and so good.  My wife prefers the corn bread...... which I like too.  Ummmmmm, dang I'm hungry for it again.   :P

........ edit add, showed this to my wife who agrees onions would be great with this dish !
