    IMG_20200226_190251867.jpgNo I'm good!   It just needed to sit a minute and then get fluffed up real good.    It ain't mashed potatoes anymore.  👍 

    Broke out the fine China again. 😊

    So how did it turn out? The recipe looks good to me and so does the pic.

    I’ve been trying to perfect gumbo for quite a while, and have it down pretty good - to our tastes anyway. I do the roux in the oven rather than on the stove. Pretty fool proof, and you can make more than you need in advance and store it in the fridge.

    Our first try at Gumbo tonight. Sure smells good! IMG_20200226_174751039.jpg




    Do you put the rice in it....or dish it out over a bed of rice?   I think I prefer the later.  

    Looking good!

    I keep the rice separate and put gumbo over it. Putting it in changes the thickness of the broth eventually. Maybe not a bad thing, but you can’t take it out. 

    I love gumbo!

  3. I don’t think anyone here is tossing around fancy words trying to impress anybody. Certainly not me. It’s more about sharing what we’re up to in the kitchen and learning. No need to dumb things down. I often end up Googling after reading this thread. 

    Folks have varied knowledge, tastes, experience and backgrounds. I think it makes this thread interesting and fun. 

    Now I’m gonna go microwave a couple of White Castles and get back to the movie.

    Crust.  And leoparding.  

    Gotta go with crust too, but everything matters.

    I mix it up with the cheeses occasionally, but stick with white cheeses. Think I’ve done provolone, Muenster, even some Swiss. Mozzarella is pretty bland. Usually try to get whole milk mozz.

    I tried to find some info indicating that trout jaw structure is more prone to injury than bass, crappie, catfish, ect.  but I gave up before I found anything. 

    Are we just assuming that because it sounds millennial.... or is there some anatomy science out there that I'm missing?  

    I found a bunch of science on it, but it was all done by those lazy, lying, incompetent scientists 😄

  6. Last night we had some folks over and the plan was to make our own pasta. Well, that morphed into a pasta making demonstration. Oh boy. Well gotta roll with it, right? At the last minute, just for fun, I thought I'd make some semolina flour pasta in addition to the regular flour version. First time for semolina. Can you get a feel for where this may be going?? It was a pain in the butt. :D Semolina didn't come out too well -- it was too wet and wouldn't separate in the spaghetti cutter. It wasn't pretty, but everyone got fed.  AP flour pasta was good.  

    Tonight we did bow tie pasta with mushrooms in a Asiago and cream sauce. One of our favorites. 


    Oh, and there were peas. :D

    Ok, but in order to be ARRESTED, CHARGED, and CONVICTED there has to be a complaint on record.   Someone from the railroad would have had to call the county sheriff and report that a trespasser is on their property.   

    Otherwise they have no jurisdiction to approach you and demand identification.   It would be an illegal arrest.

    Thanks for rendering a free legal opinion, fishinwrench, Esq. I'll print this off and carry it in my wallet. :D 

  8. There are signs posted at RR crossings all over the place that say it's private property and no trespassing. 

    from https://www.modot.org/railroads-general-information

    There are some tracks close to my home that I walk on all the time to get to the store. Is it against the law?

    Yes, it is against the law to walk on railroad tracks, and you could be arrested for trespassing. Railroad tracks and right-of-way are private property with access strictly limited to railroad personnel and persons who have been granted permission from the railroad. Anyone else on the track or grounds of the railroad is trespassing. Even though you might think that you are safe, more than 1000 people are either killed or injured each year in the United States while trespassing on railroad tracks, yards and other railroad property. For the first time, in calendar year 2004, the number of people killed while trespassing on railroad property exceeded those killed at rail/highway crossings.

  9. Here’s one we like:

    2 boneless/skinless pheasant breasts cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    2 teaspoons oil
    2 tablespoons flour
    1 tablespoon oil
    1/4 cup white wine
    2 cups chicken stock
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 small onion, diced
    1 teaspoon sage
    1/2 teaspoon marjoram
    pinch cayenne pepper
    1 teaspoon soy sauce
    Salt and pepper

    1. In an oven-safe skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil to smoking point and quickly brown pheasant pieces on all sides, in batches, and set aside.
    2. Remove skillet from heat and add flour and remaining oil to make a roux. Return to heat, add white wine and scrape brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Add chicken stock, garlic, onion, sage, marjoram, cayenne pepper and soy sauce. Bring to a boil and thicken slightly. Add back pheasant, cover and place in a 400 degree oven for one hour.

    GALAHAD: Is there someone else up there we could talk to?

    We use that one here at the office a lot.

    Actually, a lot of movie quotes get tossed around here at the old orifice. A good buddy of mine, who I worked with for 30 years, was the master. Miss having him here. Couple others:

    'You #$%^ed up, you trusted us.'

    'It was on company property, with company property. So double jeopardy -- we're fine.'

    When we see deposit balances decline around Christmas (here at the bank) it's always because 'everybody wants to buy their son the GI Joe with the Kung Fu grip.'

    And when we get a margin call it's always, 'Margin call, Mr. Duke.'

    'Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.'
