This is a bit off topic but we've also had copious amounts of rain..it's raining right now. We planted cold weather crops in jan when the ground dried out enough for us to get in the garden beds..walking outside is like a cross of walking on a saturated sponge and a trampoline. the ground squeezes out water and then your feet rebound. with the hard freezes coming and the ground saturated do y'all think the roots of the cold weather crops we planted will freeze and die?
As much as I want to say those roots will be fine - with that spongy ground, but there's still a chance. Any help you can give them would be my advice. Remember your pipes and pets.

I think vege beef stew and/or salmon stew sounds wonderful. Any food that makes you feel warm inside works for me.

My beef fat had a lot of meat on it.
The tails from T bones.
I used some of the cracklings to make a potato onion pasta shell soup like stuff with paprika garlic and Alfredo sauce.

Nothing like Cassoulet when the weather turns chilly. The lamb and duck was a bit pricey but we ate for a week plus froze some.

Never heard of Cassoulet, but if it tastes as good as it looks, I need to start searching for a recipe.

It’s fantastic.
Stick to your ribs French peasant food.
My tip is to make extra beans so that you can make those layers thicker.
Authentic Tarbais beans are worth it. I’ve used other beans plenty of times but nothing holds shape better than Tarbais.

Mayocoba beans would shoe horn in nicely.

PlainJane, I looked up Cassoulet as I'd never heard of it. What a lot of work! Sounds delicious, but dang, you must have a lot of energy!

Yes, it takes some time, but it’s not constant cooking.
Here in Florida I make it once a year but up in New England I made it more frequently.
It is really yummy. Worth the effort.

I’ve never tasted those ... will look them up.
The Tarbais beans are large, white and hold together amazingly well when cooked, more so than any other bean I’ve tried.
I’ll be starting some in the garden this weekend but I suspect it will be too hot here in Florida for them to be happy. I’ve noticed that runner beans in general struggle here.

Yesterday, for lunch, I had leftover white rice from Thursday night's gung bao chicken, with leftover sesame sauce from Sunday afternoon's cold sesame noodles.

Red beans and rice for dinner last night. No breakfast this morning which is normal. Hamburger with fries and drink at the truck stop when noon gets here. Cabbage and spam for dinner this evening.


Hamburgers at the truck stop are delicious and cheap. The things eaten and planned to eat at home are also cheap, quick; and easy.


For some reason, I've been hungry for sour kraut and planned to restock the pantry with it. I had a 7:00 a.m. meeting at our church this morning and found myself in Walmart slightly before 8:00 a.m. buying a few groceries. I love to shop at Walmart really early. No crowds, plenty of parking spaces; and no lines at checkout. I still forgot to get some sour kraut.


My wife and I have got hung up on Spaghetti squash. I bought the smallest one Walmart had two or three weeks ago. It probably cost three or four dollars. It sat on the kitchen counter for two or three weeks. They seem able to last forever sitting on the counter. After cutting it from end to end and scraping the seeds out, I bake them cut side down for one hour at 350 degrees and then let them cool before scraping the spaghetti out with a fork. Add salt and pepper, a small amount of olive oil and roasted garlic and eat. It is delicious. We can only eat one half of the squash, so the other half is refrigerated for a couple of days and provides a second meal for us. It really is cheap eating.

I am amazed you all take the time to take the pictures of your dinners. I just never think about it ever. yesterday I bought country style pork ribs to make for dinner... not thinking about the time. oops. it was 4 when I started them. so I rubbed them browned them and popped them in a metal bowl and pressure cooked them for 25 min. then put them in the oven for 30 minutes until everyone was in for supper. tender as could be. home canned baked beans and home canned peaches. economical for the quantity and quality of the dinner.
