Last time I used it, I used too much, and it tasted like alum.
They say to mix / thin it down in oil or water first. ?????

I have to see if there is a powdered smoke flavor.

I just looked on search... it is available....jut have to see if the supermarket (s) carry it.

Tonight the shells seemed like the right thing on the menu.

Supper was grazing all day.
I did have a grenn fried bell peppers and cheese sandwich at 5 PM.
I wasn't gonna cook with Tina sick. She has some kind of stomach intestine thing going on for three days now. She did eat some jello, and a spoon of mashed potatoes...but that was it.
I made frozen meatballs and tater tots and pork and beans for Gabe. He has to eat on time. Diabetic. ......

Maybe I will have some eggs later. It depends if I feel like it!.

Hahahaha ~ Close, but no cigar. Buns match! Hahahaha!



Warm day, summer meal.

Why is it the taste of macaroni salad changes with the shape of the pasta you use? Normally, I boil up some mini farfale because I think the shape is easy to stab with a fork. Today I made it with medium shells. Both good, but the taste is definately different. Hmmmm.

Hot day here too. I made a baked penne casserole this morning and will pop it into the oven tonight. Garlic bread and a small Caesar salad will finish it off.

They say we'll be in the 40's....but my tomato plants should be fine. I'm hoping the lemon/lime tree is protected enough where it is, too, out of the wind. The rest of my herbs can weather just about anything short of a sleet storm.

Not planting any herbs or veggies. Just flowers and maybe small green shrubs. I have loads of indoor herbs and do not get eaten alive by nasty skeeter's !!!!!

A warm day huh?. After all those beans and onions...It's godda be a warm bed under the sheets tonight.  

Now... as far as different pasta shapes tasting different, you are 100% right. We always had found that to be also.
Tina sometimes makes mac and cheese with rigatoni or ziti, and i love it. The elbows are ok, but the rigatoni's have a different taste, Farfalle are NOT for mac and cheese, but with fried cabbage it is outstanding.

Nothing special for supper.
DD just dropped off some hot cross buns, and oatmeal raisin cookies.
I guess I will make a couple of open faced cheese on rye or white.

Actually GD went shopping for Tina today, and picked up hot dog buns for hot dogs tonight.
Then the aide came to shower the uncle, at 6, and before you know, it was 7, and way too late for me to eat, and especially hot dogs.
That's ok, tomorrow is another day, and looking at Beths meal today, that was the inspiration for tomorrows supper.

Jimmy, I use Old Spice Hickory Smoked Salt. I have not noticed any off flavor with it but I always use it sparingly. Cassie puts it on popcorn.

Last night we had cheese ravioli with alfredo sauce, brussels sprouts pan roasted with bread crumbs, parmesan cheese and lemon zest and a salad.

That sounds really good. Did you make your own alfredo sauce?

My mistake. It was too early in the morning. I meant Spice Island. Smile

No bugs. The ravioli and alfredo were both store bought. I got them for a side dish but Cassie decided she wanted a meatless dinner. It was loaded with butter and cheese though.

I might just have to have that ravioli myself it sounds so good. I think I will use my sauces that I use for my cannelloni: a parmesan béchamel and a marinara.

I didn't mention that I added some sauteed mushrooms to the ravioli.

Brats and Warm German Potato Salad for us....sister-in-law is coming to visit for a couple days so I had to think of something 'out of the ordinary' that we haven't had in a long time. I remember when I was growing up, Mom (who wasn't a really inventive cook) always bought and served the canned Read's German Potato Salad. It wasn't until I got married and had time to read my multiple cookbooks that I found a recipe I really liked.

LOL! The canned stuff! I remember that. My parents loved it. Me? Not so much.

You know what else they liked that was canned? Canned Hormel corned beef. Pure grease. Canned Dennison's tamales. Spam. Jarred three bean salad. I also remember a canned chocolate cake of some sort. Canned new potatoes. Canned chili. That is all I can think of right now.

Tina buys that Mary Kitchen brand CB hash. I will eat it if fried crispy....
Tina just heats it and tops it with a over easy egg.
