Is it too soon to talk about Thanksgiving?

I just did a big turkey dinner, with all the trimmings, last weekend. I'm good for a while. No idea what TDay will bring. Just another day for us. Except I get a four day weekend. And *that* excites me beyond belief!

What's for Dinner #324 - School's Back in Session Edition [through September 7, 2014]

Now y'all got me craving a fishwich. What brand of frozen fish do you recommend? My goodness, I haven't even thought of fish sticks since I was 10 years old!

When do you send back a steak for being under/over cooked?

Denny's has security guards? Rough neighborhood ...

Lard, Beautiful Lard!

I render my own every year when we get our pig.

What "typical American Foods" would you serve to foreigners?

My husband loves these sandwiches. Might have to go on the menu again soon!

Storing Fresh Produce: How to prevent heads of romaine from dying lonely deaths at the back of the fridge

I don't wash it first either. I do let it sit in a colander in the sink for a few minutes to drain/dry before I roll it up and put it away.

Steam, don't boil those hard cooked eggs.

I put them in my rice steamer, set for 20 minutes, rinse in cold water and peel. Will never try to boil again.

MEAT DONENESS -- then and now

Mom cooked everything to death. So does husband. I want mine on the medium rare side. Even pork is still slightly pink in the middle. Husband stares at me and keeps asking me, "is it safe to eat that?" LOL
Hasn't killed me yet!

Do you eat the...gulp...fat?

Just had it last night. Husband chars all the fat on the grill, my favorite part of the steak.

For Fun: Favorite bad versions of dishes?

Hormel canned Tamales. Sauce must be sopped up with warm sourdough bread dripping with butter.

Soy Sauce: Does the Brand Matter?

Someone at the office brought in a bottle of Buillard's Louisiana Supreme Soy Sauce, that he picked up at the dollar store, and I was amazed at how good it was. And I'm picky about my soy sauce. No Kikkoman's in my cupboard, ever!

What to do with leftover green beans.

Husband loves "beans and taters". I toss a bunch of bacon, sliced in about one inch pieces, in a pot. Brown it up. Add a chopped onion. When translucent, add (lots, for us) of garlic. Pile a bunch of cleaned, fresh, green beans (I cut the longer ones in half), stir it all up so they get nice and coated with the bacon drippings. Toss in a bunch of baby red potatoes. Add a little seasoning salt and a fair amount of fresh ground pepper. Cover everything with chicken broth, bring to a boil, cover and simmer on low for a few hours.

Pioneer Woman, just asking about beef

posted by Ree Drummond on 6-4-14:
“We are on the commercial side of cattle ranching, and don't generally raise meat for our own use. We do occasionally use the meat for one of our own animals, but we use so much beef (and specific cuts of steak/roasts) that it isn't always practical to supply our own meat. Plus, we believe in the quality of beef in supermarkets---that's where our beef winds up! In addition, on my blog and on my show, I like to show beef the way it's packaged in stores so it's more clear when folks want to make one of the recipes. (Hope this all makes sense! :))”

How do you keep your lettuce fresh?

I wrap it in paper towels, then wrap in tin foil. Lasts a good long time.

Famous foods from your region you find tasty and delicious.

I make them at home with cube steak. Serve with cocktail sauce or Bloomin' Onion dipping sauce. Never had one "full of bones and tendons without much meat". Ever.

Food "etiquette" after a death

Up here (North Idaho), the ladies from the church put together a nice spread in the basement (kitchen) of the church for after the service. Lots of food is brought to the house, there are usually out of town family and guests milling around for days after the service. We usually take an ice chest, bags of ice, a large coffee urn, and disposable plates, cups, silverware and napkins for extra storage and easy clean up.

What do you eat when sick?

Hot shredded wheat patty with a fried egg on top.

With a slotted spoon, lower the patty into boiling water for just a second or so, drain, put it into a bowl, pats of butter on top, top with an over easy egg, break the yolk and add salt.

It's the only thing I want when I'm sick, and it's the only time I eat it.
