Tougher cuts of meat can be very budget friendly. Preparing the meat in a manner that makes those tough cuts tender and delicious is important. If your tough cut is a steak a great method is to pound the meat and do something like this tasty chicken fry. If your tough cut is chunks or […]
While we were on our family vacation this summer we ate out at Chipotle’s. We each had a huge stuffed burrito and while dining Joe said we should eat more burritos. I was surprised by that since we often have some sort of burrito, taco or tostado as part of our Stretchy Bean dishes.
What kind of foods are naturally abundant where you live? Do you have access to foods from the sea? Maybe produce grows easily in your location? Could you ‘live off the land’ and maintain (or develop) excellent health? Studying the native cultures that Dr. Weston A. Price visited, it is apparent that there was not […]
So I have to admit, there is a good chance that this post will be of benefit to no one but myself. But I’m going to share anyway because possibly, maybe, perhaps there is another person out there with a freezer full of antelope and venison that may really need this information.
Looking for a new garbanzo bean recipe, I found a very promising one titled simply Garbanzo Beans and Bulgur. My only problem with the recipe was my lack of bulgur in the house. But I do have wheat that I thought might substitute well if I sprouted it. Boy did it! This recipe was […]
I thought I’d do something a bit different this week. Instead of posting my Menu Plan, I’ll tell you what we’ve eaten after the fact. Why you ask? Because I’ve been super unorganized and haven’t really put together a menu plan for the week. And I’m feeling mostly okay with that- not completely okay but […]
I love a good Chicken Fried Steak. I love the crispy coating covering the meat. And I really love to make it even better by serving the steaks with mashed potatoes and country gravy. YUM. Of course, for years I didn’t eat or cook Chicken Fried anything because of the fat. Now that I […]
My husband and I both grew up eating wild game. For the most part we had venison (deer) but some elk too. We are still fortunate to be able to enjoy venison and elk and, now that we live in Wyoming, antelope. The thing with wild game is that it can taste a little ‘gamey’. […]
> It was a busy kitchen week. I didn’t plan it that way but it did end up that way. And I anticipate another busy week this week.My friend JLB gave me some antelope. I attempted jerky. It turned out okay but I think I can improve it next time. The flavor is not bad […]
I have mentioned in a previous post that one of the things I often do is prepare a meal that can be remade into future meals. Such as making a roast one night, the next night taking the leftover roast and making a casserole, and possibly the third night making a stew. This week on […]
I thought I would share with you how I make broth. If you are a broth/stock purist you will not want to read this post. If you are a busy slightly scatter brained person (like me) working with a tight food budget (also like me) then this might interest you. I make about a […]
I love doing my Tuesday Twister posts. It helps me to think back over what we ate, what was a success and what wasn’t. Plus I really enjoy seeing what others have been doing in their kitchens. I get the best ideas from all of you.
This was dinner Saturday night. Antelope steaks (actually […]
