Posted on 09/20/2008 6:16:23 PM PDT by TheMom
I have grown tired of cooking (and eating) the same meals over & over again. Mostly we eat steak, beef ribs, fried chicken, fried pork chops, tacos, and enchiladas. With the occasional corned beef, spaghetti and (packaged) Chinese food thrown in.
I have several cookbooks upstairs that I was considering perusing, then I thought about the fine folks on FR.
Please add your favorite recipe(s) to this thread so I can start experimenting. The only thing that I will not cook is liver & onions (YUK). I would love to have a tried & true recipe of pot roast and (not-packaged) Chinese food ~ these two things, along with homemade biscuits, have forever rejected me.
I dont have an aversion to baked stuff ~ it just has not been in my repertoire.
Also keep in mind, we do not have immediate access to fresh seafood.
Abusing the TC Memorial Shoot Ping List.
I fail to see a problem.
And how do you cook these dogs?
After 20ish years those items start to become boring.
Calling FRs best chef...
What do your daughters have to do with this thread?
So instead of fried chicken, you need to start thinking chicken pasta or stir-fry chicken or chicken over salad, etc. See what I mean?
Chicken and Wild Rice
Chicken, either a whole one or your favorite parts.
Boil the chicken with salt and pepper until it’s very tender.
Remove the chicken from the water and set aside to cool.
Wild Rice, Uncle Ben’s or similar variety. One box for a couple, two boxes for more family if needed.
Cook the wild rice in the chicken broth, assure you have enough water, add more if needed.
Remove chicken from the bones, dice and mix with the wild rice.
Variations: While the chicken is cooking, prepare diced celery, onions and mushrooms all chopped up, saute with butter, mix in with rice and chicken.
Very filling, a little goes a long way, one of my favorites for thirty years of marriage.
Asian Orange Chicken:
Easy and delicious.
Dude ~ I don’t want to cook my dogs. Nor do I need advise how to cook (hot) dogs. If you don’t have anything legit to add, go away.
I don’t have the recipe handy, but you can Google up something called “Roosevelt Beans”, from the menu of the Roosevelt Lodge at Yellowstone. If it was good enough for Teddy...
My husband would love to eat at yalls place. He's a meat and potatos guy and doesn't like "what is this" meals.
You can read a computer monitor, but not a recipe book?
You do down here. :)
Slow cooker (crock pot) + tri-tip roast (~2-3 lbs.) + a small onion + 2 cups water + 1 1/2 tsp. Kitchen Bouquet + 6-8 hours = meal. Throw in some taters and carrots a couple of hours before it’s done and you’re laffin’. Pull apart the leftover roast to make shredded beef. Combine with Old El Paso Taco Mix (40% sodium reduced) and a little water, pile in a tortilla, combine with cheese, sauce, etc. Ta-da! There’s a couple of meals right there!
