I made a meal to go with the peach chutney I experimented with today....

I ended up with a ham steak w/peach chutney, spaghetti squash and green beans. (OK, so I cheated just a little.....I cut the ham in half and saved it for cubing up to add to my eggs in the morning ~ gee, I wonder where I got THAT inspiration???)



The peach chutney was really good with the salty ham - but could be a bit more spicy. But, hey, I had a red chili pepper. I expected it to have a little heat, but, no, it was more like a mild version of a jalapeno.

You did it again Beth! That meal and ham looks great! Is that your home made peach chutney?
I was rummaging in the cabinets the other day, and I found peach Salsa!???
Never heard of it, but willing to try it soon!

Wow! Uncle Jimmy gives Charlie 3 *** stars for that one! OMG Drooling already!

( Norm...remember in school the teacher (s) (some) would put those sticky colored stars on the tests and or homework papers if it was a good report etc. ??? )

I did pretty good in school, but I always got a (-) Minus for food stains on my homework! hahahahaha

KALBI !!! I've got some (w/Charlie's recipe, of course) in my freezer right now. They didn't have the crosscut short ribs but nice chunks of boneless that I sliced and then poured the marinate over before freezing. I KNOW for a fact you guys ate good - and I can taste it just by looking at your pic!
Tell Charlie I said "Super job!"

***********************************

Goodness gracious, Barb - you're on a ROLL! Two fantastic, super delicious meals in a row....and an inspiring breakfast in between. You know I don't care for salmon but yours always almost converts me!

Thanks, Jimmy - and, yes, that is the peach chutney I made. Real chutney would have raisins in it, I think, but I didn't have any. So, it is what it is. But the spices of fresh ginger, dried curry, dry mustard and spicy red pepper flakes make the peaches into a more savory accompaniment than you'd think.

The peach salsa is good stuff. I made some last week when my sister-in-law was here. It's just a little bit spicy, sweet and when you eat it with salty tortilla chips it is a very addicting snack.

Uncle Jimmy wrote:Tina got a recipe from some chef show to boil the potatoes in 1 + 1/4 cup of salt! Awk Awk Awk....Yes..That much salt! They are supposed to magically make the inside of the boiling taters soft and moist, and are not salty!???
I have to question that? then it says oil with olive oil, and bake in the oven.
I want them fried and crispy. Or even done on the grill!!
I saw the same show, Jimmy.  They also coated the smushed potatoes with malt vinegar prior to baking, as the objective was to make them have the flavor of those potato chips with salt and vinegar.  They really looked delicious on the show, too.  After they took the out the oven, they brushed on a tad more of the malt vinegar.  Curious to hear how they turned out.

OK, so SOMETIMES a special run to the grocery store is in order........like when a certain lady from S. Carolina starts talking about sauerkraut.....

I even made a small batch of what Mr. Amazing's straight-from-Germany grandma called "spetzloff"



I used the thin boneless pork loin chops - even browned and seasoned and cooked in sauerkraut couldn't make them tender OR flavorful.....but, the sauerkraut and noodles were tasty, for sure!

I now have TWO of those Tupperware strainers - my old, long used one and the one that the previous owner had but didn't use (at least it LOOKS brand new).

I don't buy the bag of sauerkraut - I buy the cheapest, sourest can I can find. Fortunately, the Winn Dixie store carried the Silverfloss brand, $1.59 for a large 27 oz. can.

I forgot to say "Thanks" to Jimmy for the dessert idea.....



I needed a sugar high to boost my spirits after my pantry door fell off and hit me in the head this afternoon.........DARN DOOR. A silly screw came un-done and the door crashed into me when I grabbed it to open, not realizing it wasn't going to stay upright. I figured out how to reinstall the screw but I need a second body to help hold the door while I realign the metal peg in the bottom in the slot......Lyn's out of town on a road trip so I'll just have to wait a day or two until she's available. Times like this is when I miss Mr. Amazing ~ the thing would have been repaired and operating properly by now if HE was here.

I have that Tupperware strainer, too -- probably 30 years old and I have the round green one, too which is even older. Still look good.

How did you make your fried apples? Did you use the Splenda brown sugar or the real thing?

Holy Tuesday.... Oreos and sauerkraut and bubbly boiled apples....all that food is definitely food for the fall! Beth...I'm the same way! I like the kraut in the cans. Sour is the best.
Tina buys it in the bag sometimes, but I et mine from the can just heated up a bit.

I made Waffles for Tina and GD Meranda this morning.

Wanna see a waffle / sausage smile?




Tina went to the mall and brought Tacos from the Bell.
I was next door installing a power steering pump on a trail blazer, and A delicious smell was coming from the house. Tina made Banana Thin Thin Hankies. ( crepes ) Because they are square, we call them Hankies.

The crepe batter has two bananas in it that she puts in the blender. I would have to get the recipe from her which is not written because it was her moms recipe.
I'll get it later when she comes back from PA today! She's on a food shopping spree with my cousins.

We all eat them crepes different ways. Son Jimmy sprinkles sugar and lemon juice on his, and rolls them up. DD drizzles pure maple syrup on hers.
I eat them plain or with melted butter drizzled on them then rolled up like a cigar.
Tina eats them with fruit preserves.
