    Beef and cheese enchiladas. From a chuck roast and dried chile pods.

    Dinner 2021

    I've always heard it pronounced CRAW-pee. One of my favorite fish. And a lot of fun to catch if you get into a school of them. Shelby's look delicious.
  3. I put a little in my pasta water. Helps to keep it from boiling over.
  4. I found a picture of the stewed okra from last summer. Tomatoes and herbs are from my garden.
  5. Justin "I Gar AAANNN TEE" Wilson has a recipe for stewed okra. I make it several times every summer. Olive oil Diced onion Lots of garlic Really good, ripe Roma tomatoes Sliced okra I usually have some cayennes getting ripe about this time so plenty of those Chopped parsley I throw it all in a sauce pot and simmer until the okra is tender. Serve over rice.

    Breakfast 2021

    Looks great, I make these when my kids are over. I put the sliced bananas on the griddle 1st then add the batter. Seems to work well either way, though.

    Superbowl 2021

    I can't find the recipe I used last time, but I think it went something like this. Soy Brown sugar Garlic Ginger Gochujang Sesame oil Last time I made them, I just skewered them and grilled them over charcoal and they were pretty chewy. Shelby at some point mentioned that she puts them in a pressure cooker first then fries. I plan to pressure cook then grill.

    Superbowl 2021

    I've been a KC Chiefs fan since the first time they won the Superbowl. A lot of lean years with a few good ones in between. Pretty cool to have a good team again. Normally, I would fire up the smoker and do a brisket with a bunch of sides. But with the virus, it's just me and my wife this year and there's no way we could eat that in a month. Add to that the fact that she doesn't like football. I think I'm doing apps. Deviled eggs, ABTs, maybe chile con queso. I did Korean grilled chicken gizzards one time that came out pretty good. I may try those again.
  12. My wife was out running errands this afternoon and stopped by Jason's Deli for a 1/2 of a muffuletta. Pretty tasty.
  13. I only tried once. It was a complete disaster. My wife requested a cheesecake made from the fake sugar in the yellow box. Splenda? The recipe called for a lot of it. It looked beautiful coming out of the oven. Nicely risen, slightly browned top. Looked like a really nice cheesecake. No one took more than one bite. It was so bitter, I'm not sure anyone swallowed their first bite. Shivers.
  14. I will never again buy a can of PAM without reading all of the label. It said PAM, I bought it. Then I made late-night chicken wings in the air fryer. I mix half cornstarch and half flour and season with a boat load of cayenne and some Lawry's salt. Arrange in the air fryer and spray with PAM, close it up and shut the lid. 10 seconds into it I'm asking myself where that weird vanilla scent is coming from. PAM baking spray with vanilla, WTF is that? And why does it need vanilla in it? Who doesn't add vanilla into their baked goods? After cooking, the w
  15. I had never heard of Duke's until moving to KY about 10 years ago. Seems to be the favorite here. I can't tell much of a difference between Duke's and Hellman's to be honest. I usually get Hellman's because Duke's only seems to come in giant economy size.
