Anything involving "fried" and "potato" is bound to be good.
I didn't do my turkey trek yet, but I'm sure hoping to find one on sale after Christmas.

Ramen kicked up. I started with some instant and turned it into a masterpiece. I raided the freezer and found some green onion and beef dumplings that I fried in hot sesame seed oil, then fried those wonder meat Asian meatballs along with the carrots and broccoli. I topped it off with some smoked hot sausage, fresh scallions, sriracha and hoisin sauce.

Default Simple, cheap homemade cheeses

I have seen the prices of cheese rise so much that I have started making my own. Buying rennet isn't really saving money, so for now I have stuck with those of the world that are very simple to make The range of varieties from Queso Blanco, to feta and many others is considerable. Too, even without the acidulation, it is so simple to make yogurt, kefir, and more by the gallon. No special equipment required. Too, you can flavor these any way you like, such as adding some zip with a little chile pepper, adding dill to the feta, or more exotic blends. Yogurt with a bit of honey or cinnamon is delicious. Whether Indian, Middle Eastern or others, the possibilities are endless. Maybe some day I will tackle the cheese curds I miss from Wisconsin!

Worth, Rajun both of y'all's meals look scrumptious! Worth we make "tots" out of cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potato... a good way to get kids to eat veges. I guess I'm blessed. My kids don't turn their noses up at vegetables. They love them!

Gerardo.. u kind of inspired me. During the holidays when turkeys were on sale we stocked up. For supper I'm going to try my broccoli casserole minus the cracker crumb topping stuffed in the turkey breasts(x2... a lot of mouths to feed). I beat the turkey breasts with a meat mallet to flatten them out. I hope it doesn't make the meat tough. Going to have glazed carrots, scalloped potatoes, corn on the cob, and homemade yeast rolls with the turkey. Hot, filling, stick to your ribs food. We just came back from the Battle of Cowpens commemoration. One of my ancestors served with the swamp fox, Frances Marion and the surrender at Yorktown. Guess my support of the forces has been bred in me for many generations!

OH the pasta motor came in and I did make ravioli, cheese, ground beef and beef and Italian sausage. They were so much better than the can stuff, LOL. It takes a little while and I had a tray left to freeze for later. I think I want to try one of those ravioli gadgets to make it easier.

Get a ravioli form - about $12 at Amazon. My mother cranks out 20 dozen in no time with one of the forms that makes 12 at a time. Then lay them out on a parchment lined sheet pan and stick them in the freezer. Once they're solid, bag them up and stash them back in the freezer.

Instead of the barbecue chicken I was going to cook - I made chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, and gravy. It was warm today. Barbecue chicken gets cooked Tuesday when it's supposed to snow/sleet.

Thanks!
They were AMAZING, if I say so myself. I always use real butter, and use 4 egg yolks in substitute for the 2 eggs. Dark brown sugar for the filling, and cream cheese frosting seals the deal!

That was the last of my high gluten flour too, must head out to get more soon!
