    What's Cooking?

    Never cared for the taste of liver. Mom always put giblets in the gravy, but they were easy to pick out. I think she made liver and onions one time, but we kids staged a revolt and it was never made or even mentioned again.

    I love the food at Thanksgiving, and only make the stuff once a year. Roasted brined turkey, mashed taters with some sour cream mixed in, gravy with lots of herbs (hold the offal, please), cornbread stuffing, corn casserole, cranberry relish and pumpkin pie. Baby brother is doing the turkey and gravy this year, (for us and 8 other families), daughter will do the pie. I’ll make tiramisu for her to take home. Love it all! I buy a ham for the office Christmas party each year and do glaze for that. I get the bone at the end, and that goes into bean soup. Looking forward to that too.

    Love reading about the various traditions everybody has. And, I won't judge yours or preach about mine. Best thing is to have family and friends, and have *your* traditions. But...I'm a sentimental sap, and Thanksgiving and Christmas are pretty traditional with us. Here's a photo from last Thanksgiving: I love it when Kathy wears that apron

    A couple recent meals. Roasted lemon and rosemary chicken, baked sweet tater and Smoove B’s favorite - corn. Leftover chicken in a gravy with thyme over egg noodles. Rubenstien hoping for a lick or ten

    I wasn't for sure if he was talking about the chip in the plate or the style. Anywho -- I'm not taking home and lifestyle tips from a 'moonshiner from that holler over yonder.'

  8. He wasn’t gonna let there be any question of who’s gun that was! 😄 Cool story.
  9. Was just thinking about those the other day. Those labels last forever. They’re out there.

    Had the day off and figured I’d hit some local public ground where I’ve found quail in past years. Cold, windy and snowy here but I wasn’t deterred. Roads were really crappy, but we made it. Well, we found the quail in about 5 minutes...but they all flew away! 😄 Oh well, there’s always ham and navy bean soup! Plus cornbread with a little butter and molasses. Me likely!

    Well, I ain’t Chief...but while we wait I’ll share what I’ve settled on for seasoning taco meat. No flour, etc. so it’s not pasty. Just a base seasoning you can tweak with cayenne, chipotle, whatever Ingredients 1 pound ground beef 1 teaspoon paprika 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon ground cumin ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon ground pepper ½ cup water Directions 1. Brown ground beef and drain fat. 2. Add back meat, seasonings and water and simmer until mixture is almost dry.

    A empty seat around the camp fire🔥

    Got me to looking through photos and came across this one from 2010. That hat made the rounds that night😄
  13. I remember a bottle of stuff I had a while back that had larger chunks and a finer powder mixed in. Liked that stuff, but don't remember what brand it was. The stuff I have know is very fluffy and dries a fly off nicely, but it will look like a snow ball on the end of the line if you don't blow or false cast the stuff off. I always felt drying off a fly with amadou or chamois or whatever would smoosh it, requiring on-the-stream grooming, so I got out of the habit. Albolene anyone? Still got a tub of that around somewhere.
  14. Anybody know what the dry powder is? I'd bet it's just a repurpose of a material used for some other reason.

    Orvis Wader Repair

    1 (888) 235-9763 I walked into the KC Orvis store several years ago and told the guy I had dropped my Battenkill reel and broke off the knob. He went in back, grabbed a new spool and handed it to me -- no charge. I wasn't trying to get something for nothing -- looking for information on options. You might be surprised what they'll tell you if you call.
