    From Sean Dennis@618:618/10 to All on Tue Jan 26 02:20:04 2021
    Hi everyone,

    I don't know if I've said this before but I love to cook and bake. I
    don't do as much of it as I like but having to share a tiny kitchen with
    my parents doesn't lend itself to doing a lot of cooking. I like to
    collect recipes also but I make them myself sometimes.

    Here's a recipe for a meatloaf made with ground turkey that actually
    stays moist through its cooking process. My second wife, Maura, came up
    with this recipe based on one she found.

    MMMMM----- Recipe via Meal-Master (tm) v8.06

    Title: Maura's Easy Meatloaf
    Categories: Main dish, Meats, Seandennis
    Yield: 1 Loaf

    1 1/2 lb Ground turkey meat
    1 c Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
    2 Beaten eggs
    8 oz Tomato sauce (one small can)
    1 T Dried onion
    1/2 t Salt
    1/4 t Pepper

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl
    together. Add wet ingredients (except turkey burger) and mix well.
    Add turkey burger to the mixture, mixing with your hands until all
    ingredients are mixed together smoothly. Put the mixture in a loaf
    pan, place into oven and bake for one hour. When done, remove from
    oven and serve warm.

    Sean's note: My second wife modified this recipe from the orginal one,
    "Meatloaf III", at
    http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Cookbook:Meatloaf_III. I like this
    version of meatloaf a lot and it has a nice spicy taste to it because
    of the seasoned breadcrumbs. This recipe is good because it's simple
    and can be modified easily to your tastes.

    MMMMM

    Though it's after 2 AM as I write this, this suddenly sounds good. I
    haven't had it in at least eight years ... might become dinner sometime
    this week.

    We made meatloaf every other week or so and mostly use ground turkey. It
    sits in my stomach better then beef. However I /hate/ ground chicken. LOL

    I haven't bought ground turkey in years but I do have about six pounds
    of el-cheapo ground beef hiding out in my freezer I need to cook. I
    might start getting turkey as while it's more expensive, it too sits on
    my stomach better. My parents grind up chicken breasts for dog food ingredients. I don't eat a lot of chicken myself.

    I don't know how Mexican this recipe is ... never seen turkey used in
    Mexican cooking before!

    MMMMM----- Recipe via Meal-Master (tm) v8.06

    Title: Mexican Turkey Lasagna
    Categories: Mexican, Poultry
    Yield: 6 servings

    1 lb Ground turkey, cooked/drain
    15 oz Can tomato sauce
    15 oz Can whole kernel corn, drain
    10 oz Jar picante sauce
    1 pk Chili or taco seasoning
    2 ea Eggs, slightly beaten
    1 lb Cottage cheese
    1/4 c Grated Parmesan cheese
    1 ts Oregano or Italian Seasoning
    1 x Salt/pepper to taste
    1/2 ea To 1 tsp. garlic salt
    10 ea To 12 corn tortillas
    1 c Shredded cheddar cheese

    Mix turkey, tomato sauce, corn, picante sauce and chili or taco
    seasoning and simmer 5 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, beat eggs and
    combine with cottage cheese. Parmesan cheese, oregano, salt, pepper
    and garlic salt.

    Lightly grease a 13 by 9 by 2 inch baking pan, line pan with 6
    tortillas up sides and overlapping as necessary. Pour 1/2 of meat
    mixture over tortillas, spread evenly, then spoon all the cheese
    mixture over the meat. Layer with the rest of the tortillas, then the
    rest of the meat.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes until bubbly. Sprinkle
    Cheddar cheese over top and return to oven and cook until the cheese
    is melted. Wait 10 minutes before serving.

    I've always enjoyed meatloaf sandwhiches. Meatloaf was always a staple dinner when I was growing up, but I've never tried to cook it myself. Maybe I should.

    I'm thinking sides would be mashed potato and some sort of veg....

    Thanks for the recipie!

    Definitely smashed taters or perhaps seasoned rice. For a veg, I'd have
    either peas or steamed broccoli (with a little salt).

    Thanks for the recipie!

    Sure thing and I am glad you like it. Let's see if there's another one
    here you might like ...

    Here we go. One of my favorite recipes and one I grew up with. This
    works with macaroni or any other round pasta that "holds" sauce well.

    MMMMM----- Recipe via Meal-Master (tm) v8.06

    Title: Mom's Cheddar Cheese Sauce
    Categories: Sauces, Seandennis
    Yield: 5 Cups

    1/2 c Butter or margarine
    1/2 c Flour
    1 t Salt
    1/2 t Pepper
    4 c Milk*
    2 c Shredded mild cheddar (8 oz)

    In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter then whisk in the
    flour, salt, and pepper. Gradually add milk and bring to a boil;
    cook and stir for two minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; add
    the cheese. Cook and stirl until cheese is melted. 5 1/2 cups yield.

    Add to macaroni (onion and ham is good with macaroni), vegetables, or
    baked potatoes.

    * = Mom's note: "I use 2 cups evaporated milk and 2 cups of water for
    the milk ingredient."

    Sean's note: This sauce is good and thick. It makes for a great
    macaroni and cheese with ham or poured over gently steamed broccoli
    florets.

    Title: Paula Dean's Roast Beef
    Categories: Beef, Bacon, Onion
    Yield: 6 Servings

    3 lb Chuck roast, cut into
    1 Inch pieces
    Kosher salt and black pepper
    Garlic powder
    Cooking spray
    1/3 c All-purpose flour, plus
    1/4 c More
    4 tb Bacon grease
    4 tb Cooking oil
    1 lg Bell pepper, chopped
    2 md Onions, chopped
    1 c Diced celery
    3 lg Cloves garlic, minced
    4 c Beef broth or water
    3 Bay leaves
    1 ts Dried thyme
    2 tb Hot sauce (Texas Pete)
    1 tb Worcestershire sauce
    1 ts Salt
    1 ts Dried basil
    5 md Fresh tomatoes, peeled
    -and quartered
    10 oz Can extra hot stewed
    Tomatoes (Ro-Tel)
    1/2 c Fresh chopped parsley
    Leaves

    Season beef with kosher salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Dust
    beef with about 1/3 cup flour and toss lightly. Spray a cast iron
    Dutch oven with cooking spray. Heat 4 tablespoons of bacon grease and
    4 tablespoons of cooking oil (you may use all bacon grease, all solid
    shortening, or all cooking oil if desired). Brown meat in hot fat and
    remove to a large bowl using a slotted spoon. Leaving fat in Dutch
    oven, saute bell pepper, onions, celery, and garlic. Brown vegetables
    and remove to bowl with a slotted spoon, leaving fat in the pot. Add
    or take away to total 3 tablespoons of fat to make your roux. To make
    roux, add about 1/4 cup of flour, stirring constantly and slowly
    until flour is a nice deep brown, being careful not to burn the
    flour. Slowly add 4 cups of beef broth or water and stir. Bring to a
    simmer and add back beef and vegetables. Add bay leaves, thyme, hot
    sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, dried basil and stir. Add fresh
    tomatoes and 1 can extra hot tomatoes. Simmer for about 1 hour and 15
    minutes, stirring occasionally. Just before serving, remove bay
    leaves and stir in 1/2 cup chopped parsley. Serve over your favorite
    hot buttered grits.

    I've always loved meatloaf, my mom made it often and my wife did as
    well. After the divorce I was looking for "easy" things to cook during
    weekdays and meatloaf was one of them and even though I am taking an
    "easy" route with it, it is pretty decent and with some masted taters
    and vegs it's a complete meal.

    My "recipe" is just ground beef, crumbled up crackers, lipton onion
    soup mix, ketchup and sometimes a bit of A1 to add some more flavor to
    it.

    Comes out very well.

    Now, my attempt at chicken fried steak? Yea, I probably won't be trying
    that again LOL.

    Sean,

    In the meatloaf, the turkey is okay. I was talking about the meatloaf with my mom and evidently my parents detest ground turkey. I like dark turkey meat and on Thanksgiving, I get to eat all I want.

    I'm just the opposite...I prefer white meat. Years ago, when I was working for a local Burger King franchise...some nights, I was the only "white person" on the crew...but we had a blast. One of my many black friends there, called out the order for "Chicken...make it all white meat!!". <G>

    It was, and all of us roared in laughter. :) That's their original chicken sandwich, which I love (I prefer to add cheese and tomato to it)...and I also love the flavor of their original chicken nuggets (I can't handle the spicy ones, but I'm sure my late wife, Janice, would've been able to).

    I just get burnt out. Right now, I am jonesing for Pizza Hut Meat
    Lover's for some reason even though I know what it likes to do to my
    gut.

    I love any meat lovers pizza...with plenty of mozarella cheese, ground
    beef (hamburger), sausage, ham, pepperoni, and Canadian bacon. I top it
    off with the "sweet onions", but I get them confused...whether it's the
    white or purple onion that's sweet (I don't care for the "hot onion").

    Now, I need to wipe the slobber off of my keyboard. <G>

    Title: Breakfast Garbage Bread (Food Network)
    Categories: Breakfast, Breads, Seandennis
    Yield: 1 Servings

    2 1/2 c Frozen potato tots
    1 12 oz. package pork
    Breakfast sausage
    10 Strips bacon (8 ounces)
    5 Large eggs
    2 c Grated American Cheese (6
    Ounces)
    2 c Grated white Cheddar (6 oz)
    All-purpose flour for
    Dusting
    1 1/2 lb Store-bought pizza dough
    (see Cook's Note)
    Ketchup and/or hot sauce,
    For serving

    Prep : 30 min
    Inactive: 15 min
    Cook : 1 hr 10 min
    Total : 1 hr 55 min

    Crumbled bacon and breakfast sausage mingle with potato tots, eggs and
    melted American cheese in this garbage bread, which is reminiscent of
    a breakfast sandwich or burrito. Serve it with lots of hot sauce or
    ketchup for early-morning tailgating or for a portable breakfast on a
    camping trip.

    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment
    and spread the potato tots on the sheet. Bake until golden brown and
    crisp, about 25 minutes. Transfer the baking sheet to a wire rack and
    let cool. Lower the oven to 400 degrees F.

    Meanwhile, heat the sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium
    heat and cook, stirring to break up the sausage, until browned and no
    longer pink, about 8 minutes. Transfer the sausage to paper towels
    with a slotted spoon to drain; discard any remaining fat. Let the
    sausage cool, then crumble into 1/2-inch pieces.

    Heat the bacon in the skillet over medium heat and cook, flipping
    once, until browned, about 8 minutes. Using tongs, transfer the bacon
    to paper towels to drain; discard any remaining fat. Let the bacon
    cool, then crumble into 1/2-inch pieces.

    Prepare a bowl of ice water and set aside. Cover 4 eggs by 1 inch with
    water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover the pan, remove
    from the heat and let the eggs stand for 6 minutes. Uncover and drain
    the eggs, then transfer to the bowl of ice water and let stand for 3
    minutes. Drain and peel the eggs, then quarter each egg lengthwise.

    Toss the American cheese and Cheddar together in a small bowl until
    evenly combined.

    Roll the dough into a 20-by-14-inch rectangle on a lightly floured
    work surface. Starting from the shorter end, spread the cheese
    mixture evenly over half of the dough, leaving a 1-inch border on the
    sides. Scatter the sausage, bacon and potato tots evenly over the
    cheese. Arrange all the egg quarters, yolk up, along the short side
    of the rectangle. Working from this short side, tightly roll the
    dough up, jelly roll-style, into a log. Pinch the open seams together
    to seal, then tuck them underneath the log.

    Beat the remaining egg. Transfer the log to the prepared baking sheet
    and brush with the egg wash. Bake until the bread is golden brown all
    over, about 40 minutes.

    Let the bread cool for 10 minutes. Halve the bread lengthwise, cut
    each half crosswise into 4 equal pieces and serve warm with ketchup
    or hot sauce.

    Cook's Note: To make rolling and shaping the dough easy, keep the
    dough refrigerated until 10 to 15 minutes before you are ready to use
    it.

    I do like Papa John's. My favorite pizza is a Domino's thin crust with
    cheese, mushrooms, and black olives. That's a taste trifecta for me. I
    have to be careful with meats as they seem to flare up the ulcer a bit
    much these days, even with taking Prilosec and apple cider vinegar.

    Coarsely ground black pepper
    -to taste
    2 ts Chopped parsley or basil
    3 sl Swiss cheese (thin slices;
    -about 1 oz)

    If you like a Southwestern taste to your pizza, substitute slices of
    smoked chicken breast and Monterey Jack cheese, then sprinkle with
    chopped cilantro. Or create a great Italian taste with prociutto and
    mozzarella. Pizza shells are now in the refrigerator case or in their
    own display rack in most supermarkets.

    1. Preheat oven to 450'F.

    2. Wipe mushrooms clean and trim stems; slice.

    3. Heat oil in a small skillet. Add mushroom slices and cook over
    high heat for 2 minutes, shaking skillet. Reserve.

    4. Cover pizza shell with turkey slices. Top with slices mushrooms and
    tomato. Sprinkle with pepper to taste and 1 1/2 teaspoons parsley.
    Top with cheese.

    5. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until cheese is golden and bubbly. Garnish
    with remaining parsley. Serve immediately.

    I've been partially cooking broccoli in the microwave, then tossing it into a hot cast iron pan with a little bit of olive oil, sea salt and
    red pepper flakes. A little char goes a long way to livening it up.

    Oh, that sounds delicious. I will remember that. I agree that a little
    char does go a long way on the flavor train (great, now I sound like Guy Fieri).

    I am starting to see there's fellow fans of cast iron cooking in here
    too. Down in Sevierville, TN, about a 90 minute drive from here,
    there's two Lodge Cast Iron factory outlets. So much cast iron, so many
    deals (and so little money for me, unfortunately). I love going in to
    one of those stores and looking around.

    Looks like I only have about five cast iron recipes. I'll need to fix

    Years ago when I lived in Carbondale, Illinois, (around the early
    2000s), I worked at a local McDonald's and one of my co-workers that I
    got along with well was this tall, lanky black guy named ... oh, I just
    had his name in my head and I forgot it already ... well, we'd joke a
    lot. One cold December morning during breakfast, Jon (hah,
    remembered!) had to go into the freezer to grab a box of sausage
    patties. He came out, set the box on the assembly line for me to put
    into my freezer next to me, and shivered. He said, "Man, that ain't no
    place for a brother to be." We all laughed hard.

    It was, and all of us roared in laughter. :)

    Jon, myself, and others would get in trouble for making, uhm,
    inappropriate jokes about many things back there on the grill. It was a
    good time and we all had a good time doing a crappy job.


    That's their original
    chicken sandwich, which I love (I prefer to add cheese and tomato to it)...and I also love the flavor of their original chicken nuggets (I can't handle the spicy ones, but I'm sure my late wife, Janice,
    would've been able to).

    I love BK's original chicken sandwich plain with cheese. I also love
    BK's French fries right out of the fryer without salt. Yum. Not good
    for me but darn good-tasting.

    I remember some years ago when I was working at a BK here in Johnson
    City on July 4. They had the original chicken sandwich for $1 ... we
    sold over 5000 of those in an eight-hour span!

    I love any meat lovers pizza...with plenty of mozarella cheese,
    ground beef (hamburger), sausage, ham, pepperoni, and Canadian bacon. I top it off with the "sweet onions", but I get them confused...whether
    it's the white or purple onion that's sweet (I don't care for the "hot onion").

    Like I said earlier in this packet, I gotta be careful with meats these
    days though Canadian bacon isn't too bad. Something I do like very much
    on pizza is chorizo but that is in very limited amounts these days. I
    like pineapple on my pizza too but I guess that makes me weird with some
    people (not that I'm not already).

    2 oz Smoked ham; in 1/4" dice
    1 sm Onion; chopped
    2 cl Garlic; minced
    1 Red bell pepper; chopped
    1 Green bell pepper; chopped

    minutes in all.

    Remove. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat from the pan.

    2. Reduce the heat to moderately low. Add the ham, onion, and Garlic
    to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion starts to
    soften, about 2 minutes. Add the bell peppers and cook, stirring
    occasionally, until they start to soften, about 3 minutes longer.

    3. Add the Tomatoes, tomato paste, broth, and the remaining 1 3/4
    teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the Pepper and bring to a simmer.
    Stir in the rice and add the chicken in an even layer. Simmer,
    partially covered, over moderately low heat until the chicken and

    This dish is very popular for a fast and filling lunch in Japan but
    is seldom on menus because there is no challenge to cooking it. I
    learned about it from a Japanese roommate of one of my girlfriends.

    THe basic combination seems to be rice, chopped vegetables, and
    chopped cooked meat, sprinkled with either chopped scallions or
    grated daikon and soy sauce.

    There is an entire class of recipes in Japanese cuisine called
    donburi. This consists of eggs, vegetables, and some (cooked) meats,

    I've tried the sandwich with warm meatloaf, too. It's all good.
    :)

    I'm sure it is. I'm often too lazy to warm something up, and I think
    I actually would prefer this sandwich cold. :)

    Me also when it comes to being too lazy about that. I am not sure why but
    it seems like now in the age of the microwave, it is more difficult to get
    meat warmed up just right to melt the cheese and go on two slices of
    toaster bread than it was to do it all in the skillet. Still faster, but somehow more difficult and not as satisfying.

    Bob,

    Okay. You're cooking. I'll bring the wine.

    That reminds me of the joke where in the restaurant, the maitre'd
    comes up to this guy at the table, and asks "Wine, sir??".

    The man starts sobbing uncontrollably, and replies "Well, if you

    I do like Papa John's. My favorite pizza is a Domino's thin crust with cheese, mushrooms, and black olives. That's a taste trifecta for me.

    I'd add anchovy but I love those salty buggers.

    I have to be careful with meats as they seem to flare up the ulcer a
    bit much these days, even with taking Prilosec and apple cider vinegar.

    I need to try the ACV for this, but I just can't drink a shot of the stuff.
    I add it to as many foods as I can but probably not helping.

    This is the pizza dough I make when doing home made. Pretty simple and fool
    proof.

    Title: Luby's Chicken Fried Steak

    My nana alwyas did flour, egg, mashed up cornflakes on her chicken friedsteak.
    That was how her husband (my uncle "Tex") mother taught her and based on his
    nick name I'm sure you know where he was from. ;)

    Almost no one knew his real name, when he met Nana she hated his name andstarted

    I'd pass on the ketchup and probably warm up the meatloaf a bit
    but that does sound good ... probably some sourdough or rye

    Oooohh, yes I think sourdough would be a winner.

    I've tried the sandwich with warm meatloaf, too. It's all good.
    :)

    I'm sure it is. I'm often too lazy to warm something up, and I think
    I actually would prefer this sandwich cold. :)

    Me also when it comes to being too lazy about that. I am not
    sure why but it seems like now in the age of the microwave, it is
    more difficult to get meat warmed up just right to melt the
    cheese and go on two slices of toaster bread than it was to do it
    all in the skillet. Still faster, but somehow more difficult and
    not as satisfying.

    Agreed, completely. For me the hassle of using the skillet, and the
    washing up afterwards, makes me tend to just eat it cold. ;-)

    Like I said earlier in this packet, I gotta be careful with meats these days though Canadian bacon isn't too bad. Something I do like very much
    on pizza is chorizo but that is in very limited amounts these days. I
    like pineapple on my pizza too but I guess that makes me weird with some people (not that I'm not already).

    Pineapple is the ultimate pizza topping. Something about the sweetness combined with the other flavors really sets it off. I had a milk and cheese allergy when I was growing up, so I never was able to eat Pizza.

    Later in life as a teen I was able to start eating it, but since I had no Pizza experience I didn't know what to get. A friend suggested Ham/Pineapple, and I will forever love it.

    So no, yo're not weird. :-)

    Oh shoot. Are we talking about Grilled Cheese Sandwhiches now? One of my favorites, and something I can actually cook.

    I like to take real irish butter, smear it on the outside of the bread, then on the inside add a thick slice of sharp cheddar, along with garlic powder, parsley flakes, and some hot sauce. Close it up, sprinkle a bit of truffle salt on the top, and throw it in the pan. Variations include adding a slice of Ham and a Fried egg for the ultimate breakfast sandwhich.

    Another fun thing is to use some of the fancy cheese they have at Whole Foods. Sometimes it turns out great! ... and sometimes not so much. But thats part of the fun I guess.

    4) Peas and Carrots

    Bob,

    Oh yeah! Love Shepherd's Pie. Good idea. I like to add some cheddar too, just to max out the fat.

    One of the many things I'll always remember from the late Nancy Backus,
    who was a frequent participant in several echoes, were her QWK Mail
    taglines.

    Along this line, she had one that basically said "Forget the nutrition!! Bring on the luscious fat!!" <G>.

    I had a QWK Tagline years ago of "I took an IQ test, and the results
    were negative". She replied "That explains a lot!! <g,d,r>" <G>.

    She replied a few days later "I hope you weren't offended by that",
    and I told her "I got a good laugh out of it".

    She lost her battle with stomach cancer late last year, and is sorely
    missed. I think Sean Dennis dedicated his Scrabble door on his BBS to
    her memory.

    I'd warm the sandwich myself.

    Probably good either way!

    The only sandwiches I'll eat cold are lunch meat or tunafish.
    Both my late Mom and late grandmother could make some scrumptious
    tunafish salad. Darn...now I want a midnight snack!! <G>

    That works very well.

    a big juicy steak, smothered in onions".

    As he's talking, a slide with a picture of that comes in...followed

    Sean,

    Years ago when I lived in Carbondale, Illinois, (around the early
    2000s), I worked at a local McDonald's and one of my co-workers that I
    got along with well was this tall, lanky black guy named ... oh, I just had his name in my head and I forgot it already ... well, we'd joke a
    lot. One cold December morning during breakfast, Jon (hah,
    remembered!) had to go into the freezer to grab a box of sausage
    patties. He came out, set the box on the assembly line for me to put
    into my freezer next to me, and shivered. He said, "Man, that ain't no place for a brother to be." We all laughed hard.

    I'll bet. There was this one black girl there that always referred to
    me as "the little virgin boy". Another lady I square danced with always
    told me "if you don't use it, it'll fall off". I've got news for her
    (yeah, I know...TMI <G>).

    But, it reminds me of the joke with the little boy and little girl in
    this small country town many years ago, when life was slower and simpler,
    and not so rushed...never mind you didn't have to worry about hurting
    someone else's feelings...let alone the pedophiles or perverts preying
    on young kids.

    The boy was Protestant and the girl was Catholic...and their churches
    were next to each other. They were good friends, and one Sunday, they
    were in their "Sunday duds", walking to church. During the respective
    church services, it came one heck of a thunderstorm. Afterwards, there
    is standing water practically everywhere. As they're walking home, they
    realize if they get their clothes dirty, they both will get the spanking
    of their lives.

    Panicked, the girl asks her friend what they can do. He thinks a
    minute, and says "I'll do like Sir Walter Raleigh. Let's strip butt
    naked, and I'll take our clothes across to where they don't get wet
    or muddy, then I'll carry you across". The girl thought that was a
    great idea.

    So, they strip butt naked, and as a pure gentleman, he carries the
    clothes, then her across to dry land, as it were.

    As they're standing there, looking at each others nude body, the
    girl says "I didn't know there was such a difference between
    Protestants and Catholics!!" <BG>

    There was another meme, showing the back sides of this little boy
    and girl...both naked, with their butt cheeks in all their glory
    (we're all the same from the back side).

    He is standing on top of her head, and he asks "OK, we took off all
    our clothes, and I got on top of you. When is it supposed to feel
    good??".

    She replies "I don't know...but, I've already got a headache". <BG>

    Jon, myself, and others would get in trouble for making, uhm, inappropriate jokes about many things back there on the grill. It was
    a good time and we all had a good time doing a crappy job.

    If you're doing any task or job where it's not fun and enjoyable,
    then it's time to quit. That goes for hobbies as well...considering
    you and I have 2 things in common...BBSing and amateur radio.

    I love BK's original chicken sandwich plain with cheese. I also love
    BK's French fries right out of the fryer without salt. Yum. Not good
    for me but darn good-tasting.

    I liked the original BK french fries...the McDonald's ones are better.
    Many of the places use "Sea Salt" now instead of regular table salt. Also,
    we'd have folks order french fries without salt, so they could get them
    hot. They brought salt packets from home to salt them with.

    Now, those with heart conditions are supposed to "take it easy" on the sodium. But, the processed foods (aka TV dinners) are drowning in it.
    When Janice and I ordered out for pizza, she'd tell them "I want every
    anchovy you have in the place!!", and I told her "You can have those
    nasty things"...talk about a salt lick!!

    After she died of a heart attack 3 weeks shy of our 4th anniversary
    nearly 14 years ago, her Mom and Dad asked why I didn't try to stop
    her on that...and I told them "You and I both tried that, telling
    her to take it easy on the salt...and she just gave us 'the stink eye'".
    She was also type 1 diabetic.

    I remember some years ago when I was working at a BK here in Johnson
    City on July 4. They had the original chicken sandwich for $1 ... we
    sold over 5000 of those in an eight-hour span!

    I was working at the BK in Little Rock when they sold hamburgers for
    25 cents, in celebration of their 25th anniversary. I was on the closing
    crew that night, and because I got out of there so late, I didn't go to
    my college class the next day, as I was exhausted. Ironically, the BK
    was right across the street from the college.

    Like I said earlier in this packet, I gotta be careful with meats these days though Canadian bacon isn't too bad. Something I do like very
    much on pizza is chorizo but that is in very limited amounts these
    days. I like pineapple on my pizza too but I guess that makes me weird with some people (not that I'm not already).

    You're the one who's eating it...so the heck with what other folks
    think. :)

    I haven't eaten yet and my stomach is yelling at me with the talk of
    pizza ...

    Yours and mine both. I have these 3 minute microwave pizzas from Kroger,
    that are a quick fix.

    The main reasons I'm answering QWK Mail at this hour, are that I had to
    take an Ibuprofen, and with thunderstorms forecast later today (Saturday),
    I'm going to be offline later today. Plus, some of the storms may be
    severe, with tornadoes, large hail, damaging winds, flooding rain, and
    intense lightning.

    The 2021 tornado season is starting early, with that EF-3 tornado in Fultondale, Alabama (just north of Birmingham) that killed a young boy...
    and an EF-0 tornado that hit the airport in Tallahassee, barely missing
    the National Weather Service office and their Doppler radar.

    A series of recent thunderstorms knocked out the radar at the National Weather Service at the North Little Rock airport, when it got hit by
    lightning (that's at least the second time that has happened). Florida
    may be the lightning capitol of the world, but Arkansas has to be a close second. One series of storms years ago, in Pulaski County (Little Rock)
    there were over 500 lightning strikes in the county within an hour. That
    was nearly 9 strikes every second!!

    Here's a pizza I could see Kurt making as it seems this would be right
    up his alley ... him being a Californian nonwithstanding ...

    We won't hold that against him. <G>

    As for Canadian bacon, it looks nothing like regular bacon. :P However,
    I saw a "redneck COVID-19 mask"...made out of bacon strips. <G>

    And, speaking of "redneck COVID-19", here's a "proven test" (I've posted
    this in other echoes, so I apologize for any redundancy).

    1) Get a bottle of your favorite wine.
    2) Pour some in a glass.
    3) Bring it up to your nose, and take a sniff.
    4) If you can smell the fragrance, take a sip.

    If you can taste it, you still have your sense of smell and taste, so
    you're negative. Repeat as many times as needed. <G>

    said that 3 people on the entire planet have a certain disease,
    and his wife is one of them.

    She was panicking, saying "I have every one of those symptoms".
    He replied "You do not have testicular cancer". After the audience
    roared in laughter, he added "you don't even have testiculars". <G>

    No thanks. I gave up all pasta and bread for 4 years and
    while I lost weight I was miserable. I'd rather be happy
    and unhealthy, besides do you really want to live forever?

    I was refering to better health wrt no aches or pains, and no
    reliance of drugs to stave off the effects of "bad" eating.

    I don't know when I'll drop dead, but it won't be because I
    caused it from the foods that I eat. Meanwhile, I will not have
    any physical ailments because of that either.

    There were a number of years when I gradually started developing
    some weird discomfort and pain in my knees and hips. Initially,
    I thought it was my new normal as I was cruising through my 50s.
    I had inconsistent bowel issues too and imagined the worst case
    scenarios for that. I also was unable to raise one arm above
    shoulder height without enduring a lot of pain. There was a
    weird neurological thing that was happening - I was recording it
    much like the Gordon character in Halt and Catch Fire.

    Long story short.. I simply changed the way I ate, and the
    problems went away.

    So, until I drop dead, I'd rather feel comfortable without
    excuses. ;)

    One of the many things I'll always remember from the late Nancy Backus, who was a frequent participant in several echoes, were her QWK Mail taglines.
    She lost her battle with stomach cancer late last year, and is sorely missed. I think Sean Dennis dedicated his Scrabble door on his BBS to
    her memory.

    I rejoined the world of Fido/FTN in October, right after her passing. I've seen many of her posts and she seemed like a very good person and conversationalist. Sorry I never was able to "chat" with her.

    Agreed, completely. For me the hassle of using the skillet, and the
    washing up afterwards, makes me tend to just eat it cold. ;-)

    Yep, I have talked myself out of many a hot sandwich this way!

    Oh shoot. Are we talking about Grilled Cheese Sandwhiches now? One of my favo
    ites, and something I can actually cook.

    I was actually thinking of a hot ham and cheese but, yes, the classic
    grilled cheese also would fall into this category!

    I like to take real irish butter, smear it on the outside of the bread, then on
    the inside add a thick slice of sharp cheddar, along with garlic powder, parsle
    flakes, and some hot sauce. Close it up, sprinkle a bit of truffle salt on the
    top, and throw it in the pan. Variations include adding a slice of Ham and a >Fried egg for the ultimate breakfast sandwhich.

    Fried egg and chesse sandwich would also fall into this category. So much better when grilled. That description you give of your grilled chesse
    sandwich sounds like a good one!

    MMMMM----- Recipe via Meal-Master (tm) v8.06

    Title: ASPARAGUS WITH RED PEPPER SAUCE
    Categories: Diabetic, Side dish, Vegetables
    Yield: 4 Servings

    1 lb Asparagus Stalks;
    3 lg Large Red Peppers
    3 1/2 tb Olive Oil
    1 tb Balsamic Vinegar
    (you might want to try
    Rice vingegar)
    1/2 ts Fresh Thyme Leaves
    Salt & Pepper

    Peel the asparagus if necessary and cook the stalks in lightly salted
    water for 4 to 8 minutes, depending on thickness, or until fork
    tender but stiil firm. Drain under cold water and set the stalks
    aside. Broil the peppers on all sides until lightly scorched. Place
    the cooked peppers in a paper bag for 10 minutes. Remove the peppers
    and peel off the skin. Cut open the peppers and remove the stem,
    seeds and white flesh. Puree the peppers in the food processor. Mix
    in the olive oil, Balsamic Vinegar and thyme. Taste for seasoning and
    add salt and pepper if desired. Place equal amount of the puree on 4
    serving dishes. Top with equal amounts of asparagus. Food Exchange
    per serving: 1 VEGETABLE EXCHANGE + 1 FAT EXCHANGE (I would cut back
    even more on the fat, only using what is neccesary...)

    On 31 Jan 2021, Tiny said the following...

    You should TRY and eliminate white flour from your eating habit entirely. If you snack on chips, cookies and bread you'll
    probably experience withrawal cravings for a while, but your
    health will improve.

    No thanks. I gave up all pasta and bread for 4 years and while
    I lost weight I was miserable. I'd rather be happy and unhealthy,
    besides do you really want to live forever?

    A few years back I was having some stomach issues and found that giving up gluten really helped. I lost a lot of weight and was back at the gym quite a bit, but holy hell was it a PITA to plan and prepare meals.

    As you no doubt discovered, gluten is pretty much in EVERYTHING. We went out for sushi I was surprised to lean that soy sauce has gluten in it, who woulda thunk it?

    After about two years I was tired of the whole thing, so decided to slowly reintroduce gluten and I was happy to find that I could tolerate it again.

    Of course now I could really stand to loose 40 pounds, so maybe limiting it instead of eliminating it entirely could be an option.

    I have enjoyed similar results by eating once a day and getting more
    exercise. I've dropped 30 pounds in one month. I'm less than 20 pounds
    from my ideal weight but I have so much physical damage that even with
    the weight loss, the pain is still there. My diabetic neuropathy is
    throughout my entire body so the pain isn't going away quickly. Once I

    My late father's late sister (they both died of pancreatic cancer),
    went through chemo, etc. -- it gave her "an extra year of life", but
    there was no quality of life. This week is the 14th anniversary of my
    Dad's passing.

    The US is now the only country in the world that allows drug advertisements in mass media. Ever notice that a drug commercial on TV talks 15 seconds about the benefits of the drug and 45 seconds with

    I think of Jeff Foxworthy's video on YouTube on that (search for

    Sean,

    I agree. Why couldn't it be something I didn't care for??

    Or "if it tastes good, spit it out". :P
