I Am Inimical


« on: September 12, 2017, 05:47:58 AM »

with fall and winter coming on?

Or don't you really do "seasonal" foods?

I've made my first pot of chili, I've made my first batch of ham and bean soup. Those are traditional fall/winter foods in my family.

Other traditional fall foods in my family are sauerkraut (obviously!), creamed cabbage, my family's version of pot pie, mac and cheese, and beef stew.

Roasted winter squash, either roasted with butter and brown sugar or stuffed with a sausage and rice mixture, are also winter treats.

One that I started making recently, and which I'm not really sure as to whether it fits in my winter or my year round rotation, is cabbage roll casserole. I love cabbage rolls, but they're such a pain in the ass to make, but a casserole version using chopped cabbage is a lot easier.


And, let's not forget toddys... hot buttered rum and whiskey...

Sweet potato pie.

Though, with the prediabetes, I should avoid it at all costs.

I'm just looking forward to fall, which is taking its sweet time arriving. When it shows up, I want some Mexican hot chocolate.

Green chili!  We usually put up a bunch of chiles and salsa this time of year.  We just got back from checking on the Romas just up the road, and they look good.  Probably get a box roasted and a bushel of chile also, this afternoon or tomorrow. We'll chop and bag a bunch of chiles in 29 oz bags (which makes a 20 qt pot of either of our recipes). When we get in the new house with a proper kitchen in November, we can cook and freeze a big pot full.  Thaw and heat a pot of chili, and smother some bean or avocado burritos. Easy and everyone likes it.

Fresh apples.  I buy the half-bushel bags of "seconds" from the local orchard.  Mostly Honeygold and Haralsons.

Don't you dare say you're looking forward to pumpkin spice lattes. That's racist!

Around Thanksgiving is when I make a new batch of batter for hot buttered rum.  I'll keep making more batter as required until about Christmas.  Then when it runs out, that's it until the next Thanksgiving.

Looking forward to a lot of "seasonal" foods and beverages but since I've been overseas since June some of the things I'm craving include: biscuits and sausage gravy, country fried steak and eggs, and Philly cheesesteaks just to name a few.

I only eat it around the holidays, to keep it associated with them.

Boeuf Bourguignon. So simple to make in the crockpot, and so tasty.

The eggnog is coming soon. This is how I tolerate Christmas stuff being put on the shelves before Thanksgiving. I find I am much less easily annoyed when I can gulp down some cold eggnog.

I have a recipe for eggnog that is a killer. I got it about 30 years ago from our squadron MS (Navy Cook). The only problem was cutting it down to reasonable portions. The original called for 11 dozen eggs, and a ton of vanilla ice cream along with the other ingredients. If I remember I will post it up later.

My favorite commercial fruitcake that I can easily find is the Claxton dark.  No one in this area sells it, so I buy it on Amazon.  The locally-made fruitcakes, including Costco, are not very good.  The Costco fruitcake does not have a large enough variety of fruit (pineapple and cherries) and is way too sweet for me.

Recipe  ??    I have a packet of Beef Bourgiugnon Seasoning  I need to make that again.   It was really good.  I made mine in the oven, but I'd love a crockpot recipe !!!

I used to make a traditional English plum pudding for Christmas.  Basically an early form of fruitcake.

Now that mom is gone I probably won't make it again just for me.

Eggnog falls under that category of things I don't want to actually have to make, just enjoy. Store bought is fine with me. Part of it is because I can and will drink the carton within 24 hours of purchase. Having to go to the store to get more both limits consumption and makes me feel less guilty about gulping rather than savoring.

Making is so much better though and you get to control the ingredients. I can't drink the store bought stuff at all. Sad

I'll see if I can remember the recipe I used. It was tasty, but for some reason the meat wasn't as tender as I would've liked, despite 8ish hours in the pot on high heat. Not sure if I used too much wine or too little tbh.

It last longer if you cut it 50/50 with some good dark spiced rum.

I got some (I think) Bird Dog Blueberry Whiskey last year. Nasty stuff by itself.

Excellent added to Eggnog. I may have to get some more this year.

Also, BSL, you shouldn't be gulping eggnog as it should be served hot. Noting better than a hot cup of eggnog and watching the snow fall. Well, maybe hot cup of apple cider.

Looking forward to some pheasant now that I can walk again on my new knee. Bad timing is the bird dog is now 12 y/o and not good for long hunts.
