Welcome to this week's installment of the Weekly Cooking Thread.
Please share your Christmas fare recipes and what you'll be serving this week.
Nobody had the heart to tell him that every ounce of butterfat went to town in milk cans and what he was eating was margarine that had been put into butter molds after mixing in the dye.
We weren’t that inventive as we just left the Oleo in the bowl I mixed it in. I remember the wars over letting the Lard factory add the yellow coloring before it left the plant...
That does give me an idea. I make other compound butters besides the cinnamon butter I gave the recipe for above. I have no butter molds but my wife has a silicone cat shaped ice cube mold.
Just knock the handle of that Lead Crystal lid for gramma’s butter dish and Voila butter mold...
Cheesy Turnip & Carrots
(from the allrecipe site - very good casserole)
3 cups diced Turnip
2 cups sliced Carrots
1/4 tsp ground ginger
3/4 cups water (reserved veg water)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup diced celery (doesn’t need it - I don’t like it :)
3 Tbl Butter
3 Tbl Flour
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese.
Boil turnips/carrots in 1/2 tsp salted water. Drain, reserve water.
In skillet, saute onions/celery in 3T butter - stir in flour, pepper and 1/2 tsp salt. Add milk and 3/4 cup of reserved veggie water. Bring to boil. Cut heat down, Stir in cheese - stir in vegetables. Pop in oven for 10-15 minutes at 350’
(I didn’t do it but bet it would be good topped with buttered bread crumbs too)
OK - that looked bad - not a 1/2 teaspoon of salted water but water with a 1/2 tsp salt added - lol
That’s hilarious! Boil in a half tsp of water. :)
