What will ya'all be having on the table this year?
Have any great recipes to share?
The menu at our house:
Hummus and pimento cheese, vegetables on the side
Relish plate with olives, peppers, 3 kinds of pickles and okra
Roast whole turkey with giblet gravy (I do mine in a bag)...
With dry peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas being staple preps, thought it worth sharing the Pulse Pledge website I happened across – it is loaded with recipes, swap ideas, how-to's and more, including many useful pdfs to print and keep with your stores.
1 can vienna sausages
1 tube biscuits
BBQ sauce or other condiment
Flatten a biscuit
Place a vienna sausage in the center of it.
Add a sliver of cheese
Give it a smear of BBQ sauce or other condiment.
Wrap the biscuit around the vienna sausage and cheese.
Pinch the biscuit closed...
a serendipitous Project Gutenberg file find I thought worth sharing:
"This book is planned to solve the housekeeper's problem. It shows how to substitute cereals and other grains for wheat, how to cut down the meat bill by the use of...
( for most recipes, divide in zip lock bags and label, or if wild-game get creative with wild editable plants)
*Simple Camp supper!
cook 3-4 bacon strips
1 any kind of sausage or game
Add 1 1/2 Tablespoon flour to grease
Mix in 2 cans of sauerkraut in coffee can
Add 2 cubed potatoes or canned...
Once a month, from Friday supper through Monday breakfast I practice cooking and existing on preps. alone. The basic premise is that the refrigerator and freezer do not exist (except for ice for drinks.) I make a point to not cook just from canned foods but to work a variety of my stored foods...
Looks interesting, has anyone here picked up a copy and tried any of the recipes?
delightful video promo;
as i looked over the site it looks a standard cookbook with survivalist/zombie themed recipe names.
It's that time of year again! Venison is coming to a kitchen near you if you're fortunate. :D:
I know there are some people who have been cooking venison for centuries or longer and have all kinds of tried and true recipes. I have a few that are consistent hits around my house.
I have a good bit of freeze dried food and am always trying to find a NEW way of cooking it on the trail. This turned out pretty good.
First I started with about 10 spork-full scoops of freeze dried "Chopped Chicken" by thrive. (http://www.thrivelife.com/freeze-dried-chopped-chicken.html)...
I posted on Facebook about my plans for a garden next year. A friend's answer surprised me.
Me: I really want a garden next year. Besides produce getting expensive, fresh is better anyway than something that's been sittin' in a truck for 3 days! As I'll be restricted to container gardening...
I use this to fry catfish and most other small fresh water fish - bream, crappie, slabs, speckled perch, sac-a-lait, sun perch, shellcrackers, stumpknockers, chinquapin, bluegills, and pumpkinseeds. People are nothing if not creative in nicknaming our favorite fish. :)
I have gathered up a few recipes for grits. They are a staple at our house and are some good eating. :)
The history of Grits:
Grits are made from hominy, the name given to nictamalized corn. (Sometimes you also hear that called limed corn which is easier to spell.) There are different...
Growing up I had the fortune of having two former chefs as parents. While being raised I never saw store-bought bread in the house or even store-bought pasta sauce. Just about everything was made from scratch and not only was it healthy and monetarily efficient it was also quite delicious.
Hi, I'm starting my 2nd month on leave, I'm knackered and it's midwinter here, and I'm loving every second of not being up a ladder in the freezing cold, pruning things.
So of course I'm broke. Broke at home in winter. Oh dear, how sad, never mind.
Looked in the fridge. Nothing. Looked at my...
Hi y'all. I found this cookbook while looking for ways to cook my preps. It arrived today and it looks incredibly fabulous. It was published in 1990. It has so many recipes that call for ingredients that would be in most preppers pantries or gardens. I know I have a large stock of lentils, but...
I'm a single guy living by myself. I love to cook, but I often have a hard time spending an hour or more preparing a meal for simply myself. Sometimes I find it easier, and even cheaper, to just grab something on the way home rather then make something myself.
So here are some quick, easy, and...
