Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest chocolate---chocolate is a bean.

OREO TRUFFLES / simple, but tasty.
So very rich, make them small w/ small cookie scoop or
melon baller. Dip some in milk chocolate, some in bittersweet.

START Finely grind entire box of Oreos. Mix with softened 8 oz cream cheese.
Form into small balls. Chill before dipping. FINAL Dip balls into fave melted
chocolate. Chill to set.

I hate to admit this, but after panning Bill's Easy Chili, I found myself making a couple of chili dogs with chili out of the can (Austex brand) I toasted the buns and added cabot seriously sharp cheddar as well as fresh diced white onion just to make myself "feel" like I was cooking.

OMG those were good! LoL

I just bought a bunch of smoked sausage. We’ve made some Sausage with Beans and Rice (which is tasty) but I’m looking other recipes. Any suggestions?

Cut sausage on the diagonal and brown in a little oil, remove to a plate.
Add:
1 diced onion, 3 stalks of diced celery, 1 bell pepper (Holy Trinity)
Saute in the sausage drippings and remove.
Add a little butter and about 1/2 cup of flour and brown over med. heat (careful not to burn rue) Keep is loose by adding more oil or butter.
Add slowly chicken or fish stock and wisk. I use shrimp shells for my fish stock. Add Old Bay seasoning to taste and hot sauce to taste.
Add about half of a package of frozen non-breaded okra,
2 14oz. cans of diced tomato and all of the Holy Trinity and sausage and simmer 20 minutes.
Add 1 lb. of peeled shrimp, 1 lb of diced sturdy fish and 1 package of fresh oysters (optional)

Serve over white rice and enjoy! Don’t forget a basket of crackers and hot sauce on the side.

I made sausage sandwiches the other day with Italian sausage. Poached them until the water dried and then sauteed them with garlic, shallots, tomatoes and peppers. Sliced the sausage in half and put the pepper mix and sausage on a toasted hoagie roll with melted cheese. Simple and fast.

2/3 cup evap milk
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup Kahlua
1/4tsp salt
2 cups semi-sweet choc pieces
1 cup milk chocolate pieces
2/3 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp vanilla

Line 8 in baking pan with foil. In 2qt saucepan combine:sugar,marshmallow, milk, butter, Kahlua and salt

Heads up! If you're going to stock up, do so YESTERDAY! Prices are skyrocketing in my grocery store. They've been rising but this week was the worse. Roma tomatoes went from .82/lb last week to $2.32/lb this week (no tomatoes on the tacos I'd put on this week's menu). Yellow squash is at $2.48/lb. Canned veggies have gone up 20%. And meat, well, is out of this world though I did get some limit 2 boneless chick thighs for $1/lb so need to go back for more but I'm not going to waste gas to make a special trip.

FYI, the thighs were preseasoned with Mexican spices but you can always rinse them off to remove some of the flavor or use them as is in a Chinese dish as those flavors blend well enough. I passed up the bone-in thighs for limit 2 $1/lb but some people wouldn't realize it wasn't the same savings what with having to pay for the bones.

Over the past few months, I've noticed that my HEB store (only store in town) is always out of some of the weekly ad specials. It used to be a good local chain but something has changed. Yeah, HEB, I'm calling you out. The same store over in the next town is also having that problem so I don't know what's up. It's a not only aggravating that it's not there, but when so many around here live in the country and have to limit grocery runs, it a real pain. This week it was $1 cauliflower.

My great-grandmother’s oatmeal cookie recipe. Do oatmeal and walnuts count as vegetables?

Grandma D’s Prize Oatmeal Cookies

Cream:

2 c sugar
1 c butter
2 eggs
1 tsp soda (baking powder)
1/8 tsp salt

Add: 1 cup raisins or chocolate chips (or 1/2 and 1/2)

Mix: 2 c oatmeal (or 1 c oatmeal & 1 c walnuts)
2 1/2 c flour

Cream the first group, add the raisins or chips, then mix the oatmeal (and walnuts if substituted) and flour together and add to rest.

Roll into balls, flatten, bake 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Decadent.

Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.

Love zucchini bread but it's pricey this time of year (nearly $2/lb). If you were wise and picked up after-holiday sales on canned sweet potatoes, you can substitute those for pumpkin in pies and breads as the taste is practically identical.

A friendly heads up on pre-seasoned meats in ‘some’ grocery stores....’some’

Many meat departments, instead of reducing the packages of fresh meats getting close to code (or if they have too much at once hitting a date)- will open and pre-season the meat to cover the ‘getting close to funkiness’ smell. Same with fish departments.

I’ve witnessed it done in the backrooms many times.
Again - in some chains and more rampant in small operations.

A hint to watch out for - if the store randomly has pre-seasoned meats (instead of a dedicated section daily with a nice variety)it’s most likely going on.

Prices are skyrocketing in my grocery store.

At my Save-a-lot this week,

Celery jumped to $1.99.
Roma Tomatoes to $1.49, but the selection was very poor. (They have been much higher sometimes in the past).

Bagged salad (12 oz) remained at $1.18.

Bananas at $0.57 (the price always varies).

Generally, so far, it seems only a few select items had sizeable price jumps.

Is that the link sausage like Eckrich? Here's an easy one dish comfort meal:

Sausage and Cabbage

1 (12 to 16 oz) pkg. sausage link, sliced
1 small head cabbage, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 can ro-tel style tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes

In a large skillet, brown the sliced sausage. Add in the remaining ingredients and cover. Heat on med-high until cabbage has wilted to your taste. Stir occasionally.

Same idea with bologna. Cut a piece of bologna into quarters and brown in a skillet.

I am making these tonight and everyone just LOVES them!

Baby back or regular pork ribs

I cut each slab in half, cover each piece generously in cayenne pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Place them in a foil covered pan and place in the oven at 195 degrees. Cook for 6-7 hrs. No need to check them until done.

Fire up the grill approx. 30 min. Prior to pulling the ribs from the oven.

The baste for the rives is what makes them delicious. In a bowl add cup and a half od honey. Add a quarter cup or more of soy sauce to the honey and mix well. Set aside.

When ribs are done in oven, add moist hickory chips to your fire on the grill. Place ribs on cool side of grill and basted liberally with honey/soy sauce mix. Close lid and let smoke. Turn and baste ribs every 10 min. Smoke on grill about an hour

These will be some of the best and juicy ribs you have ever eaten! Enjoy, I know I will tonight!

If you like Sauerkraut...in my area many people bring Sauerkraut and Egg Noodle dishes to pot luck meals - most add Kielbasa (Smoked Sausage)-Yummy - Lots of different recipes online.
(this is a basic starting point recipe)
http://www.cooks.com/rec/doc/0,178,159167-245204,00.html
Fry Kielbasa chunks and incorporate into dish (for the overnight wait) before baking in casserole to warm the next day- can be served room temperature, which is great for pot lucks.

I found some supposedly “vine ripe” *yeah, right* from mexico last week for 99c lb.

They were awful!! they weren’t properly ripe, they were hollow inside with virtually no caviar.

They had to have been picked green.

Peanut butter and Pickle does sound gross - I bet if you added Bacon it would be better - LOL

My husband - for years - would cringe every time I made peanut butter and bacon on toast (English Muffins-better)for myself.

One day - probably around 10 years into our marriage - I stuck one in his face and said “Just Eat It!” - he asked for seconds!

We OD’ed on those sandwiches for the next 6 months - every Saturday morning he begged “Make PB & Bacon sandwiches - Please!” lol

Okay, this is a secret that only my FRiends should know...

Find some nice thick Asparagus.
Do the bend-break on one, cut the rest to that length.
Coat in a good olive oil.
Shake Lawry’s Garlic Salt (with parsley) over the medium.
Grill to just before the last crispness creeps out of them.

Serve with Steak....

Best vegetable in the world when grilled!

Even the manager of my regular supermarket (Food Lion) is freaking on the sticker shock.

I’m going to ask my SIL who lives in Delaware to check prices on a couple of items for me in a Food Lion up there. I’ve lived in Virginia now for almost 8 years and am finally paying the same price on certain items I buy frequently as I was in Delaware before we moved.

I don’t buy a lot of pre-packaged stuff, but I do admit that Noodles and Sauce and Rice-a-Roni have always been staples in my house, and so am very price conscious about those. My 12 yo could live on the stuff and frequently makes it for herself, sometimes more than once a day :)

Asparagus is awesome!

I blanch it in boiling water, then saute in a pan with garlic, add white wine and reduce, then finish the sauce with butter.

The prices are very inconspicuous.
If celery was $1.19 and now its $2.50 that’s over 100% increase in price.

It is happening on everything.
People think an item is reasonable at $1 but if the price was 50c previously, they will be in for a shock when the cashier tallys all the items.
