DM, she wanted chicken and fried okra last night. I'm supposed to cook brats with cabbage as the side dish tonight, but she has 3 hours to change her mind. So ...

Salt the reason for the hot water 180 to 190 degree method of cooking sausage like this is so you dont cook the fat and moisture out of it in boiling water or a hot fire.
What you end up with is a fat juicy sausage you can then quick crisp if you wish.
If it is cured you can drop the temp down to 150 degrees for around 15 to 20 minutes.
This will assure you a sausage that doesn't shrivel and dry up out of the fire or the pan.

Last nights supper and today's lunch I made enough for two meals.
The rice was cooked as usual.
While this was going on I put 1 part butter and one part olive oil in a pan and heated it up.
Then added cumin my hot pepper oil garlic powder turmeric black pepper.
when the rice was cooked I put it in the pan with the oil and spices in it.
After it was mixed up I added fermented carrot fermented habanero fermented onion fermented 1/4 lime all chopped up and some oregano.
It was mixed again and heated while the chicken was in the oven.
The chicken was rolled in bread crumbs that has garlic powder black pepper red pepper oregano and salt.

After this was all plated I put some of my homemade red peppers flakes and oil.
This was made with red pepper cumin oil and salt.
Very tasty and to my standards not that hot at all.

Got a decent sized nice chuck roast at Aldi's this last week and divvied it up, since there is just me - and the cats and the dog, they made me add them in!- so have got several meals out of it.

Cut some thick slices from it and lightly dusted it in seasoned flour, baked them until medium and that was tasty. Today is the last of it, making it into a more or less stew, undecided whether to add tomatoes as yet. Being lazy and doing it in the crock pot, too.

It's been raining and o a nice "winter" dish sounds good for tonight.

That looks good, Worth. I got a pound of great northern beans in the crock pot seasoned with a pack of country ham trimmings I got for a dollar at the local Dollar Tree. Going to make some cornbread with it, slice an onion, and tomato, and get the jar of pickles out of the refrigerator to eat with the beans.

You made me want beans again to.
Tonight the cold front came in good so I have a kettle of pinto beans and ham hocks cooking and about ready to make cornbread.

Tonight, Bush's Homestyle beanies over sliced and fried Hebrew National frankies. Add a slice of cheap American cheese, a chopped up Scotch Bonnet or two. Cook for a while. Garnish with ketchup.

Yummy. And a personal assault on the ozone layer.

Looks like everyone's eating beans today. I cooked a pot of pinto beans too.

Hmmm.. did I start a trend? Beans are a good, cheap source of protein. I will say my eyes about popped out of my head when a friend who eats supper with us most evenings brought me a pack of cracklings to put in the cornbread. $4.95 for 8 oz! Anyone else think that's highway robbery?

You can blame it on the new Paleo fad.

The storekeeper in my hometown did that. He sold it as "ham salad" . Talk about false advertising.

I just watched them make Drunken Beans on America's Test Kitchen tonight and it looked really good. For tender beans, they soak 1 pound of dry beans in a brine of 3 tablespoons of table salt to 1 gallon of cold water for 8 to 24 hours before cooking. I downloaded the recipe and might try it this weekend.

One of my favorite cheap and easy meals is a can of Goya Roma Beans lightly rinsed, heated in the microwave, tossed with salt, cayenne pepper and olive oil, then lightly mashed. All it needs is a hunk of good, crusty bread to complete the meal.
