That sounds good! I have everything in the house, except the chicken and shrimp, to make this. Thanks.

Mexican Pork Chorizo

That's what I'm thinking. My son-in-law has never had chorizo and I can't wait for his reaction. I love introducing new flavors and cuisines to my family..

I'm a fan of scrapple, so this didn't scare me too much.

The rice casserole sounds kind of like dirty rice. Thanks for the idea!

Thanks for the info. I knew of only two kinds, the Mexican and the Spanish.

The first time I had chorizo it was fixed this way.

Thanks, we decided not to put it in the burgers, but I will be making a big old mess of scrambled eggs this weekend.

What is your favorite way to use Mexican Pork Chorizo in a recipe? I'm thinking about using some in our turkey/pork burgers.

What was in your Christmas stocking growing-up?

That's funny!

What was in your Christmas stocking growing-up?

Did we grow up in the same house!?! For some reason we always had nuts of some kind in the stocking, too.

I remember the stinky dolls in the locket! I had all of them, too. That's a smell memory that doesn't go away easily.

Pound of Jalapenos

I pickled the jalapenos with garlic and carrots.
The garlic is turning blue! Is this normal?

Could you pass along a recipe? I would greatly appreciate it, need all the help I can get.

I'll probably do some gaucamole and salsa, love both of those. As for your fifth suggestion...I can think of a few people...

Pound of Jalapenos

What would you make with a pound of fresh jalapenos? I was thinking of maybe pickling some.

I'm Bored! Need family meal ideas.

Get them in the kitchen and let them help. What if they had to plan and cook a dinner once or twice a week. The more interested you can get them in food, the more they will want to try. Ooh junior Chowhounds!!!

What was your favourite childhood concoction, which you now think is disgusting?

When I was little I would make chocolate toast with butter, powdered chocolate (the one with the metal lid), and sugar. Kind of like cinnamon toast.
It's scary some of the stuff we came up with on those "saturday mornings" when the parents were sleeping.

How to cook lamb-first time

Thanks for the link. I wanted to check with other CHers before I went to the other sites you suggested.

How to cook lamb-first time

Thanks for the info on the spice. I tend to be a little wimpy when it comes to really spicy foods, but my kids love spicy stuff. The rub idea sounds good. I'll probably go with that first.

Thank you for the info. My kids and I are excited about trying lamb for the first time.

I've never had lamb and would love to know a no-fail, tastes great recipe. Anything else I should know concerning which cuts of lamb are best or knowing when it is done, would also be appreciated.

Happy feet in the booth behind you--what to do?

Was that my husband??? I am so sorry for his aria at dinner. He likes to do that in the grocery store too, about six steps ahead of me. I do not find it funny when he does this.

Are Crockpots Lame?

I love my slow cooker, I'm using it right now. There are some great ideas at the crockpot ladies website. www.crockpot365.blogspot.com She has even made curry dishes in her's.
Most meats I cook, I sear them first. Fatty and cheap cuts of meat work really well.
