  1. What's Cooking?

    Thought I'd start a thread for folks to post what they're cooking. I'll start off with what I did last night. Got the itch for some German food, so I cooked up Jaegerschnitzel, which is essentially weinerschnitzel, which is essentially a fried pork cutlet, with a mushroom sauce. Pounded a couple thin chops even thinner, breaded with some panko and fried in vegetable oil. Sauce was baby portabellos, a little red wine and a chicken gravy from the deli section of the store. Served with a side of German red cabbage and some mashed taters. Turned out pretty good. I did this with pheasant a couple weekends ago. That was good too. So, what are you cooking?

    Yeah, I’m sure that’s lamb In there. Virgin lamb from my private flock. Or herd. Whatever you call it. 😁

    Glad to have another bierock lover out there. Now, let’s get you into shepherd’s pie. Meat and taters and gravy. How can that not be good??
  4. What's Cooking?

    Ahhh. Still thinking about your bierocks then this. How do you not weigh 300 pounds? 😄

    Oh man, I love me some bierocks!!
  6. 2018 Garden Thread

    Nothing to report yet. The catalogs are piling up in the loo though. 😄
  7. 2018 Garden Thread

    Well, another week indoors and my starts are wanting to stretch their legs. We had some nice weather during the week, but I wasn’t able to get them out. Haven’t taken them out of their 1-inch cells yet and they’re not liking it. I’ll give them a little Miracle Grow and they will perk up. Low 50s today and rainy, so they’re gonna get to go outside, but not for long.
  8. Bass Fly Swap 2018

    Alright, mine are done. Ronnie? Have gotten out with your butterfly net to gather materials for the trashy dragon fly yet?😁
  9. It's been a long time since we've done a swap, and even longer since I participated in one. So, I'm proposing we do a bass fly swap since things are warming up. Also, I need some bass flies -- in particular some from Flysmallie and BilletHead. Standard fly swap protocol will be observed: (1) Sign up by March 31, 2018. Reply to this thread and name the fly you intend to tie; (2) Tie 8 flies, plus extras if you feel moved to tip the Swapmeister. It's nice to tag the flies with your screen name; (3) Send said flies to the Swapmeister by April 30, 2018 (address will be provided) in a container marked with your real live name, OA screen name and return address. Include a couple bucks to cover return postage or risk (a) getting no flies and/or (b) a special mention here. (I still remember the guy that stiffed me the last time I hosted); (4) Swapmeister will send one of each fly received to each participant who meets the provisions of (3) above. He will also photograph each fly and post the pictures here; (5) Receive flies and immediately return to this thread to gush over wonderful flies and heap praise upon the Swapmeister for putting this together; (6) Fish said flies, and post pictures of fish caught in this thread; OK -- everybody got it? I'm going to limit this to 10 participants, just to keep it manageable. So, hurry up, sign up, get up and tie up. I have taken the liberty to sign up a few that I know will be thrilled to be offered an opportunity to show their creativity and skill. I will update participants and flies in this post. Participants/Flies 1. ness (Swapmeister) -- Pencil popper; received 2. Flysmallie -- Marabou pig 3. BilletHead -- Predator X; received 4. ness’ lady — Wooly bugger; received 5. fshndoug —Streamer; received 6. Flysmallie — Gurgler 7. Flysmallie — Trashy dragon 8. ness -- funk #49 popper; received
  10. Whatchya Drinking?

    Well, we get the odd posts here and there about what we're drinking, so I thought I'd start an ongoing thread to post what we're up to liquid-wise. I'll start it off with a re-post or two from the What's Cooking thread: KC Bier Company has been around a few years but just got their bottling line running. They focus on German styles and do a great job. Bottles hit stores today.These are both excellent. Good malt, light on the hops. A dark beer for folks that don't think they like dark beers: Their Hefe weizen has the tartness I like, but I can't drink more than a couple: An oldie but goodie -- I'll buy it now that it's in cans. The bottles were often skunky: rps and Gavin mentioned dilly beans in a Mar-tooni. I gotta say, it's a winner! This one was vodka with Noilly Pratt (IIRC) So, what's in your glass?
  11. What's Cooking?

    Yeah, Revere Ware at my house too. My mom had it from the 50’s and the stuff I have dates to 1988. Tough as nails. Replaced a sauce pan a couple years ago when a handle weld failed, but the rest is good. Yeah, a good nonstick is needed and a good cast iron is too. But the day-to-day is in the Revere Ware.
  12. What's Cooking?

    When I was in school, there was a guy whose dad was a rancher in western Kansas. He came back from a weekend home with a big jar full of testicles. They were floating in some cloudy liquid. I just couldn't make myself do it, but a few of the guys did. I did try them a couple years ago in Wyoming. Sliced, breaded and fried was a lot more appealing than the whole ones sloshing around in an unknown liquid.
  13. What's Cooking?

    That happens to me sometimes. 😄
  14. Bass Fly Swap 2018

    I dunno, but the low heat really fixed it good and quick.
  15. Morels??

    Lotta factors, but generally the soil temp needs to be into the 50s and air temps into the 60s and up. It’s freakin 30 degrees here right now.
  16. Bass Fly Swap 2018

    Received fshndoug's today. Lookin' good! Thanks Guess I'd better get some tail assemblies on mine.
  17. Bass Fly Swap 2018

    I now feel fully sorry for you.
  18. Bass Fly Swap 2018

    Did the pencil poppers first and the regular right after that same bottle of Zap-a-Gap. No time for temperature or humidity change. Can’t think of any other variable that would ha e affected it but the poppers themselves. But that seems pretty unlikely too. Weird.
  19. Bass Fly Swap 2018

    I’m starting to feel sorry for you.
  20. Bass Fly Swap 2018

    That’s all I could come up with too. Something different about the chemistry. But they were both Waspi Perfect Poppers, and the pencil ones were fine. Weird.

  22. What's Cooking?

    Oh, and very nice, thoughtful gift.
  23. What's Cooking?

    Well, I clearly don’t know poultry anatomy. I never saw a ball sack on a bird, so I never thought about fries. That is what we’re talking about, right? Now, let’s talk about a better name for the rest. Wobbly parts doesn’t sound too appetizing. Neither does offal. 😄
  24. Bass Fly Swap 2018

    Yeah, it stayed gooey for a long time. I wiggled the hook thinking it would expose it to air, when that didn’t work I did it a couple more times. Then I gave it another big up and down in the slot and let it set for a while. Nothing. I did the oven thing without researching or anyhing — I was prepared for a total loss on the little poppers at that point. They set up hard as a rock, but needed a little clean up.
