Post by: purplelady1040 on June 23, 2019, 06:05:24 pm
Supper tonight is fried chicken which is rare as we don't eat a lot of fried foods, coleslaw,  potato salad, baked beans,rolls and chocolate cake for dessert.

I thought it was going to be a cool,rainy day so I put on a pot of chili. Not that it really bothers me because I often fix chili in the summer. lol
I have a beautiful strawberry cake topped with fresh strawberries for dessert.

Yum. That sounds good. I was going to cook spaghetti but had a migraine headache pop up, so my husband offered to order take out and save the spaghetti for another night. How do you make your strawberry cake? My grandmother made one that was so good. I miss that and her rhubarb pie.

I make it different ways according to what I have in the pantry. My favorite way is to add a small pack of strawberry gelatin to a white cake mix, add about a cup of smashed strawberries. Then frost with strawberry buttercream frosting and then garnish with fresh strawberries. I used to make the cake from scratch but I found using a box mix is not only easier but it is also tastier.

Sounds good and I think that is the one I remember seeing a recipe of. My grandmother made hers from scratch. If you put milk in a cake mix instead of water it will make your cake taste homemade.

Our Subway does a real good job of putting meat in sandwiches and salads. I prefer them over Jimmy John's.  We have a Firehouse Subs but it is expensive but good and I like McAlister's.

I haven't had that one from Arby's,  I am not a big fan of there's but then we don't est out a lot because with a family of 4 it cost like $50.00 -$60.00 to eat out. I prefer to cook unless we are on vacation.

Me too. I started cooking in my grandmother's kitchen when I was about 4 years old. ( Mostly I guess I thought I was cooking I guess). I prefer to cook and I love to cook. My mother says that my cooking reminds her of her mother's cooking and that is the ultimate compliment for me.

I started cooking real.young, my late mom put me in 4-H cooking and I was grand champ for a lot of years. I enjoy cooking and baking.
Tonight is meatloaf, mashed potatoes and carrots.

And another trick is to use more eggs than the recipe calls for. I used to make most of my cakes from scratch but I don't anymore. Unless it is one there isn't a mix for such as an fresh apple raisin walnut cake. I bake a lot. one of my favorite tv cooks is Ree Drummond. Do you have a favorite?

Tonight we had leftover pot roast with potatoes and carrots. I used to put my daughter in 4-H cooking too. I never entered the cooking but I was in 4-H too. I always entered the talent shows. I love cooking but music is my first passion.

I prefer Trisha Yearwood and liked it when Paula Deen was on there. Ree kind of gets on my nerves and a lot of her stuff isn't from scratch but her show is still good and some of her food is good also. Cooking, tractor safety and tobacco was the only thing I did in 4-H, lol.

Fresh green beans with new potatoes, fried green tomatoes, fresh creamed corn, cornbread and ripe tomatoes. My sister came and ate with us. I had baked peanut butter cookies today and had a pineapple to cut, but we ate too much dinner, so we passed on dessert. The dinner took us back to our childhood. Back when we used to have to hoe the corn and pick the beans.I probably will have the leftovers tomorrow.

Yes, it is too hot to cook. I just bought an Instant pot, but I don't really know how to use it yet. I don't know if I will ever use it, because I am a slow cooker type. My mother always used pressure cookers and they kinda scared me. Anyway, I am thinking maybe a BLT and a fresh peach.

I **** yesterday and had a Wendy's jalapeŮo triple cheeseburger and chili, lol.

It had been 3 weeks since I had any bread or anything super carby.  I was still in a large calorie deficit for the day so it won't kill me.

I have not been to sonic much, but there is one by me and I think that is only place I have been.

They don't mess up shakes but every time I have ordered food it's been meh.  First time I ordered cheese sticks and all the cheese was gone inside them cause they were cooked too long ... I don't remember what else has happened but now I associate it with bad food.  So I won't ever go there anymore except for a shake.

They have Chicago dogs, which are okay. 

I am kind of bored.  Can't drink ... trying to save $$.  Cold out.  I can't really go out to eat, lol.  I'd like to go have a beer or two and sit outside with my good boi dog, but I need to just be super duper disciplined for about 60 more days. 

I am gonna go to store and get a nice steak I think for dinner.  I am getting tired of basic chicken, pork, beef, chicken, pork, beef, chicken, pork, beef for my one meal at dinner a day. I really should look up some keto recipes.  First 23 days of this wasn't so bad, but now I am like I can't wait for this to be over.

Left over 7 layer salad and some Costco chicken salad (they need to add some more flavor to that ... and they use the same for their shrimp salad ... it does not have a lot of flavor to it)

Tonight ribeye (I like that Costco has prime meat) and maybe cauliflower rice.

When that movie came out to the theaters, my kids were laughing at me in the car after the last avengers telling me fat Thor reminded them of me, lol.  Those lil effers are gonna pay!!!!!!  😜

Actually people in general have no problem telling me I'm getting fat, lol.  I must have the kind of face that says feel free to share your unsolicited opinion about my appearance and be brutally honest about it and don't spare my feelings, lol.  It doesn't bother me, I already know when I am slacking.  Still I would never tell someone that!

I would never dream of telling someone they were getting fat. They should say in a polite way, looks like you have gained a few pounds.  ;D
Tonight will be something Quorn and vegetables, but not sure yet.
I never go to the gym, but a good a way to exercise and burn a few pounds is constant housework for a couple of hours, then rest and then out walking the dog. ; ) Works for me !
Have a good day.

You have a nice one too. 

I have to run or watch what I eat.  If I run I can eat and drink what I want.  I don't need to lift weights to look like I do, tho, which is nice.  So just keep fat off and I can have like a 9 or 10 body.

I come from a very meat and potatoes and beer drink culture, tho.  So if I am lazy and not watching what I am eating and not running, I will put on weight.  Not as fast as I can lose it but it slowly trickles back on.  For me weighing myself every day is good way to keep it in mind.

My dad, my mom, my family, my buddy's gf (I am gonna be in their wedding this summer), some outlaw biker I met this summer (we partied all night together but he mentioned something g I don't remember ... I remember saying I am only 20 pounds away from looking in decent shape).

So yeah people will say stuff but when I am in shape people, including, strangers will say you must work out, or you are huge, or ask if I take steroids.  My buddy's gf will ask me to flex for her ... like four or 5 of her gfs just walked up to me and one of them said "I am sorry but you are hot."  So it's a two way way street.  I think people are critical in part cause it's kind of a waste for me to not be in shape.  I have been blessed with a nice body if I show it.

Except my mom ... I'm always either too fat or too thin, lol.

Pork steaks, veggies and an apple dump cake for dessert.
Cake recipe is super easy.
You can use either apple pie filling or cut up apples,, yellow moist cake mix and 3/4 cup of melted butter.
Preheat oven to 350, spray glass pan with cooking spray, 4 cups of apples, pour cake mix on top and pour melted butter on top. I add some cinnamon before sprinkling butter on top. Bake 45 to 50 minutes.

Coincidentally I just made PLs  crockpot sausage recipe but used country style pan sausage and it was pretty darn good...
Smoke sausage was pretty good in it but gave it more a Cajun spicy flavor. My daughter didn't care for it but she is a picky eater. Our son will love it. It has 2 of his favorite things- meat and potatoes. Lol

Me too I just don't have the proper ingredients and I won't go to the store because of the virus...LOL

Coincidentally I just made PLs  crockpot sausage recipe but used country style pan sausage and it was pretty darn good...

That does sound good.

That's exactly why you are single. You don't make demands like that in a marriage. A marriage is a partnership not you saying that my husband will do this and that and I will do this and that. There are times that my husband cooks, and does the laundry and I don't ask him to do it on any certain days. Eating out is not something you would also do if you had a family.  A meal out is very expensive with a family of four. Or even 3. We rarely eat out and both of us cook but I don't dictate what night he is going to do that or what night to do laundry. Now, we all know why you aren't married.

That came out wrong, I would not dictate, just explaining both parties must work as a team and share the chores. I choose not to get married, I've had several opportunities in the past. I like being single, it works for me, I never wanted children. The closest thing I had to a child was an Iguana.

Again, an animal is not human or a baby. You don't get it because you don't have kids. You can't compare an animal to a human. Humans are capable of carrying on a conversation and communicating by words with a person and animal isn't nor will they ever be able to do that.

They are delicious....Hereís the recipe.

To make a turtle:

Lay out a rectangle of heavy duty aluminum foil that is at least a few times larger than all of your ingredients.
Form ground meat into a patty with the center being thinner than the outside, season.
Cut same-type vegetables into slices as uniform as possible.
Cut longer cooking vegetables thinner/smaller than quicker cooking.
Place meat patty in center of foil.
Cover with vegetables, season, and add sauce, if applicable.
Bring long edges of foil together until they meet in the center.  Fold foil over to create a sealed edge.  Continue to fold until you have almost reached the top of the vegetables.
Neatly fold open end of foil to seal.  Repeat folding several times until getting close to enclosed food.
Repeat on the other open end.
Should have a packet similar to what is in the first picture.
Place in coals (or on grill) and cook until doneÖchecking one after about 15 minutes to see how fast your coals are cooking.
Generally it takes 20 to 25 minutes for an average size patty and packet to cook.
OR, you can place them in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until done.

Weíve done silver turtles but weíve used a variety of different meats and veggies as well as the hamburger. We use to just have a smorgasbord of stuff like steak chunks, chicken strips, smoked sausage, pork tenderloin pieces, all marinated and then have potato chunks, onions, peppers, squash, broccoli, asparagus, carrots, celery....and let everyone fix their own. After you wrap them, use permanent marker to put your name on them. Itís great with teenagers around. They tend to get creative and then they share their completed projects. LOL Throw a nice strawberry and spinach salad together and youíve got a crowd pleaser.

Iím probably having left over Papa Johns pizza tonight and then tossing the remainder in the freezer for another day or possible to be forgotten and tossed at some point. 🤔

I wished I could remember what I always ordered when I went to a Thai restaurant in Nashville but I can tell you it was spicy. Indian food is also.

I had leftovers from Thursday which consisted of round steak with red & green bell peppers, onions, tomatoes and lots of seasoning, leftover peas, leftover macaroni, and leftover corn on the cob. It was delicious but the remainder of steak will go in the freezer and the remainder of the veggies will be fed to the garbage disposal.

I saw this recipe on The Pioneer Woman. Sometimes she is a little dorky but this sounded really good. 
Fry up maple bacon or peppered jack bacon, any bacon will really work-remove bacon but don't drain the grease.
Grill chicken or use skillet that bacon was cooked in. If grilling brush chicken with that bacon grease.
Top chicken with bacon and then top with grated  cheddar cheese and let melt. Viola, sandwiches.

Grits is a porridge made from boiled cornmeal. Hominy grits are a type of grits made from hominy Ė corn that has been treated with an alkali in a process called nixtamalization with the pericarp removed. Grits are often served with other flavorings as a breakfast dish

It is an easy recipe.
Chicken breasts in crockpot. Then add 2 cans of chicken broth, 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, stick of butter, pinch of salt. Cook for 6 to 7 hours on low. One hour before eating, shred chicken. It calls for frozen wide egg noodles but I couldn't find those so I added cooked noodles in for the last 45 minutes.

They've been forecasting rain all day here that hasn't happened yet.
Anyway we decided to stick close to home and will end up putting something on the grill, probably steaks or chicken.

Great idea!

It is hard to explain but this place has stuffed sandwiches that are awesome. They have one called 3 cheese. That is what I had. One called a stuffed Monte Cristo. It is like they take the bread and stuff the ingredients inside the bread and toast them.

Yeah, fried green tomatoes are one of those things you either love or hate and like you, Iím quite fond of them myself. I tried freezing some green tomatoes once so I could have some in the winter but it didnít work real well. Iím thinking I could probably fry some and freeze them but Lord have mercy, they donít stay on that plate long enough for me to get them in the freezer. 😳

I love spaghetti too and it freezes real well. Enjoy!

I saw some recipe where someone freeze dried the green tomatoes and then used them for fried green tomatoes.  I don't know if that would work or not.

Thatís my absolute favorite meal but I can never eat it all. The potato tends to fill me up so I try to just nibble on it then I end up with 2 meals. Do you eat the skin on the baked potato? When I was a child I was a very picky eater and when it came to potatoes, all I would eat were the skins. LOL I guess Iíve always been a little odd.

That sounds really good!

I had a root canal done today so I wasnít in much of a mood for cooking or eating. I ended up throwing some left over peas and some leftover carrots in the microwave & thatís what I ate simply because I knew Iíd get sick if I didnít eat something. 😏

Ouch, I had a new crown put in yesterday and it took 3 pain shots to numb the area. I wanted to smack the dentist and I like the guy.

Walmart Deli has the General Tso's chicken hot and ready to go in their Hotspot.  You can get a meal of chicken, mash potatoes, gravy, a vegetable and roll for $5.98.  I much prefer fried rice from a Chinese restaurant but mash potatoes and gravy are really good too.

Yes, we have gotten that before but this was in the frozen section that you just open the chicken up and cook. Then put hot sauce in warm water to thaw it and then pour on chicken and cook for about 3 minutes.

Hi there Zoey! I like Arbyís. Itís actually one of my favorite fast food restaurants. But, all in all, I think I just like food. 🤪

I was out & about this evening so I picked up a chicken sandwich on my way home. Ironically, I kept thinking I should hit up Arbyís but McDonalds was closer so thatís what happened.

Have you ever had Hot Brown or is that just a Kentucky thing? I had the best Hot Brown a couple of months ago and Iíve been craving it again ever since.

Hey Icno! Arby's is having a special right now. You can get 5 regular roast beef for $10. I donít remember the regular price.

Hot brown. Is that a gravy? If not Iím not familiar with it.

Had smoked sausage Alfredo this evening. Not impressed but it was recommended.

I think hot browns are more a Kentucky staple than in other places, kind of like BBQ mutton and burgoo.

Well, that does sound like a deal. Iíd have to invite the neighbors to eat with me. I just checked my snail mail & I have Arbyís coupons. I havenít actually looked at them yet but Iím excited! LOL

OMG....Hot Brown is wonderful! No, itís not a gravy and Iíve never attempted to make it but my Grandmother always made it after Thanksgiving when she had leftover turkey. It originated from The Brown Hotel in Louisville. It was a specialty and often served to Derby guests.

Tonight Iím just staring at the kitchen wishing something would magically appear to give me inspiration. So far no luck, so Iím thinking a salad is probably going to be my dinner of choice this evening. Itís Thursday, and I have to clear my schedule to partake in 3 hours of ABC.

Well, that tomato is really not needed at all. Sorry about stepping over your post. I was in the middle of typing mine and got a phone call and just finished it and posted without reading back.

The mornay sauce sounds easy enough but Iíd find a way to mess it up. Then again, at least for me, nothing seems to taste as good when I make it myself. 🤨

I have a friend who makes the hot brown and she skips the tomato, like you said not really needed. And the sauce is easy to make according to her.

I think half the fun of trying new dishes is making them your own. Iím on a low potassium and phosphorus diet so I have to be really creative. Iím still experimenting and very limited. Seems everything has potassium so Iím doing without a lot of my favorites.

Iím sorry youíre on a restricted diet. I know thatís difficult. I think I need some additional potassium because Iíve been having a lot of leg, foot and toe cramps. I donít care for bananas much so I guess Iíll try other potassium enriched foods. We should eat together and Iíll eat your potassium.

I had that deep fried turkey sandwich from Arbyís last night. It was pretty good. I had the jalapeŮo bites with it. LOL I really love those jalapeŮo bites.

Tonight I had leftover spaghetti. It wasnít very good but I ate it anyway. Iím not sure if my cooking has taken a nose dive or if my taste has gone berserk but it seems nothing I cook anymore tastes very good.

That deep fried turkey sandwich is the best thing Arby has but I like the beef and cheddar sandwich they have but I don't eat them often. You didn't have the coronavirus did you, I hear that really messes with your taste buds. I hope not.

When I was working in Government I had a friend who was from Owensboro. When he would go home for the weekend, he always brought back a tub of the best BBQ for me. Yummy!!

Not sure what Iím having yet tonight. If nothing comes to me, I might have sh...it on a shingle. I have some milk about to expire so I need to try and use it.

That would be BBQ mutton more than likely. I love mutton and burgoo. Here's the chicken casserole recipe.
3- chicken breaststroke, cooked and cut up
1 can of chicken broth
1 can of cream of celery soup and mushroom soup
1 jar of pimento
1 medium onion, cut up
1 green pepper cut up but can also red or orange.
1-7oz. Box of elbow macaroni- uncooked.
1 package of sharp cheddar cheese
After you have cooked chicken, place all ingredients with the chicken in a greased casserole dish. Cover and refrigerate.
When ready to cook. Preheat oven to 350. Crumble Ritz crackers and pat with butter. Bake for 45 minutes.
You can also add peas or other veggies in this.

I had Hot Brown curbside pickup from a wonderful local restaurant along with a salad. It was absolutely scrumptious, however I only took a few bites. My son called just as I started to enjoy it. When I told him what I was doing he said, ďMan, Iíd love to have some Hot BrownĒ. Well.....this Momma canít resist. I told him there was plenty here for him, stopped eating, closed the container, and waited for him to show up.

For New Years Pork Roast and Sauerkraut.

Germans have been eating pork and sauerkraut on New Year's for generations because they believe it brings good luck (viel glŁck in German). ... That's why in Ohio and Pennsylvania, which received many German immigrants in the 17th and 18th centuries, people are almost religious about this delicious duo.

Oh my goodness, I love IHOP! During Christmas they have a Grinch breakfast thing for the kids and itís really cute. I miss going out to places I use to enjoy and IHOP is one of those places. Regardless of what time you go, theyíre always packed and thereís always a wait.

Tonight is spaghetti and garlic bread. I threw the remainder of the chicken & dumplings in the freezer. It seems like chicken & dumplings along with vegetable soup always tend to grow when youíre preparing them. If my son doesnít stop by to grab it, I end up freezing left overs.

Hmmm....Interesting. I donít use tomato sauce or tomato juice but I know a lot of people who do. I use canned tomatoes and a little bit of tomato paste. I also donít use chili beans. I use kidney beans. I wasnít privileged enough to have a mother that taught me to cook. When I first married I had to learn on my own. Chili was one of those things I just kinda figured out on my own and did my own thing. I turned out to be a decent cook after a lot of trial and error. Honestly, Iím not sure how we survived. LOL

Hope your dinner turns out good! I like to put my potatoes, carrots, and onions in with my roast when I fix it in the slow cooker. Can you do that in the Instant Pot as well?

Yes, ma'am, you can add the vegetables, here is how I did it. When the pressure cooker went off, I added my vegetables and reset it for 2-3 minutes and they tasted just like they had when I did them in crockpot.

Iíve never heard of hot cocoa rolls but I bet theyíre good. Have you heard of chocolate gravy? I have a friend from TN and apparently they had chocolate gravy and biscuits for breakfast quite often.

I had leftover roast, asparagus, and tomatoes for dinner. It wasnít anything worth bragging about but I managed to choke it down.

These were a Pillsbury brand with a marshmallow.frosting and if I do say so myself, pretty damn good. Yes, I have heard of chocolate gravy and had it. It is fantastic over sweet biscuits and I love grits with tomato gravy, another Southern dish.

A leaf of lettuce in the middle of a plate, a glob of cottage cheese on it topped with some fruit cocktail in heavy syrup from a can.


And some miscellaneous cold cuts rolled up and placed around the plate.

That sounds good except that glob of cottage cheese. I had to laugh when I read this because the other day I bought some cottage cheese for the first time in years. For lunch I got it out and put a glob on a plate with some tomatoes. I took my first bite and OH MY GOD, I remembered why I hadnít bought any in years. I do not like cottage cheese. I tried and tried to choke it down but it was awful! I know people love that stuff but Lord have mercy, that was torture for me!

They can count themselves lucky I am fixing that much. Part of me is saying,"Pull out a loaf of bread and a pack of boloney" But, nobody here likes boloney except for me, so I guess I won't do that to them. I may make a fruit salad.

I only lost my sense of smell...but not for everything. I can taste with no problem. I just came out of isolation yesterday and then found out my daughter has it today, I was really bummed out.

I was bummed out when my son and daughter came down with it too. They were both so careful to follow all the guidelines. My son is a few states away in Arizona, so there is not anything at all I could do for him. I will send good vibes to you and your daughter.

It sounds good!! Have you ever ate at Drake's , my friend from high school owns that!!
No kidding? Wow! Yes, of course Iíve eaten at Drakes. Malones is my most favorite place to eat. Theyíve really branched out but Iím not sure how many restaurants they might have now. I honestly thought they were both from Lexington. Itís Bluegrass Hospitality Or something like that. Iíve met Mr. Drake at Malones but Iíve never met the other gentleman. I like the Turkey, Swiss, and Avocado at Drakes and of course I generally have either Rib Eye or Salmon at Malones. Iíve always said if I were ever going to be involved in a restaurant, it would be just like Malones. Iím guessing youíve eaten there a few times yourself. I like how theyíve named a number of their dishes after U.K. Football and Basketball.

Yep, he has several restaurants and opened one up where he and I are from. He sent all of us classmates a gift card and I went there and had the mini BLT's and they were awesome. I think he has plans of opening one up in TN. I haven't ate at Malones.

I think heís already opened a few in TN and maybe IN as well. Malones and Drakes are the same partnership but Malones requires a reservation and is steak and so forth whereas Drakes is sandwiches and such. Malones has sandwiches as well but Drakes is more of a leisure type establishment. They have another restaurant as well but I canít recall the name and I havenít been there. They also have a sushi bar at Drakes. Youíll need to try Malones as well.

Sounds good P.L. Iím debating with myself over whether to have a ham & cheese sandwich or a grilled cheese sandwich or maybe just a couple slices of cheese. Iím not real hungry but I have to take a pretty strong antibiotic which tears my stomach up which is another reason Iím having dinner so late. Iíll figure it out I guess. Iíll more than likely scratch the grilled cheese cause I hate to dirty a pan. LOL Guess Iím kinda lazy.

Maybe you should have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that way you just mess up a knife. Lol, I have had to take an antibiotic before that messed my stomach up also. Hope you get better soon.

Well, I had a peanut butter sandwich for lunch and peanut butter on toast for breakfast. I also had peanut butter yesterday and peanut butter and crackers for a late night snack. Iím kinda afraid to consume much more peanut butter. LOL

I went with the ham and cheese. It was okay.

Thankfully I only have one more day of this antibiotic!!!! Yay!

I enjoy Chinese but I donít think Iíve ever eaten steamed dumplings. I stopped eating Chinese when the pandemic started. I know that sounds awful and Iím not racist in that regard. Itís just that since thereís never been any definitive determination about where the virus actually came from, I became leery. Iím pretty sure over half a million people didnít die from eating Chinese but it did make me feel uncomfortable for a while.

Ooohhh Sorry about the headache but I do love some Dominos!! We have one with the drive thru about 3 miles from me. My grand babies love the cheesy bread from there so when I have them weíll often get the $5.99 deal with a medium cheese pizza and an order of the cheesy bread. Theyíll gobble it up like little starving puppies.

A good friend of mine and I went and did some serious retail therapy. Found a show store that if you could fill a basket all the shoes were 28.00, let me tell you, I was in nirvana and came home with like 20 new pair of shoes that were like 2.00 a pair. Blowfish, B.O.C. Sketchers and Earth Origins. She had made supper for it and it was like sweet and sour pork chops.
Today is ham, potato salad,  baked beans,  deviled eggs,  rolls and cherry cheese cake.
