Just got my 1st crockpot!!

So, fingers crossed pork (loin!) with leeks onions carrots with sage and tarragon. Put a few bits of potato, hoping it will thicken a bit.

More excited than is reasonable :)

mmm, that sounds good (as does most of the stuff you all post here!). Would you mind sharing the recipe?

This was in reply to the comment yesterday about cheeseburger chowder. I tried to quote that post, I don't know why it didn't show up that way)

Hi Wheeleez! Um, I don't actually measure anything, so here goes.

For huge pot o' chowder:

2 lbs ground beef

1 5 lb bag potatos (I used two to make homefries first, so up to you)

2 onions

bunch scallions

Brown ground beef in big soup pot, season the crap out of it, add chopped taters, onions, scallions, and enough water to come one inch below food. Boil until potatoes are tender, add:

1/2 & 1/2 (about a pint)

pile of cheese.

You're done!

It's always better the second day. Would also be good with broccoli... hmmm....

Italian sausage slices fried with onion, green and red peppers. Sweet potato fries with paprika and cinnamom.

Rice for the others.

I am having dessert tonight for a change. Ice cream with caramel topping and may sautee some apple slices.

I found trout on sale today at the store. I have missed fish these past few weeks so I am very excited. I'll probably just fry it up on the stove. I think maybe some sort of potato with it and some fried green beans too.

My peppermint cocoa pebble treats are awesome! I don't think they'll survive long.

Have you tried any of the venison yet? If so, is it very gamey? Sometimes I find it deplorably gamey but other times it can be very good. I love good venison and one of my favourite ways to do it is to make a blackberry (or cherry or other slightly tart berry) gastrique. A loan recipe that is very good is Roasted Venison with Blackberry Sage Sauce...very appropriate for your cut.

http://leitesculinar...sage-sauce.html

Please let us know what the flavour is like. I am very curious!

welcome back, love2! this is the last of the venison in the freezer he got last year, so i know it is tasty :) i grew up in northern nj and whenever i ate venison from up there, yes, it was pretty gamey - people would soak it in milk overnight to get the gamey taste out. i was not a fan!! but down here in east tennessee, he hunts up in the mountains and for some reason there isn't a gamey taste to the meat. almost zero fat and mostly anything you can do with beef, i use deer for. he gets ground meat i use it for sauce for spaghetti, chili, burgers <although i usually add some other kind of meat to burgers to hold them together. also roasts: perfect for sauerbraten or pot roast, etc i will also cut it into cubes and make stew or slice it & marinate it for grilling on skewers. that blackberry recipe looks delicious but i think i will save it for when we have all those blackberries coming in next summer! :D making mushroom's suggested recipe tomorrow night (still eating leftovers tonight lolz) to feed the hubs and then he goes back in the woods - between trucking and hunting, if he ever leaves me i probably won't notice!!!! ;)

Glad you found a recipe you like. My dad was a big game hunter so I was raised on elk and moose. My husband used to hunt when he had time. Sometimes I would go along with him to camp (we have a camper). I would stay in the camper and read and cook and have steaming hot chocolate ready for him when he got "home" from hunting, often with snow on the ground as there is right now.

I love a good elk burger.

At any rate, I had a cheese wrap with a big bowl of broccoli.

I am making crispy baked fish (cod) and chips with a light batter and crispy coating. Oh, and onion rings, too. Crudites with Green Goddess dressing.

Dessert? Today I made pecan cinnamon buns you ROLL out. Delicious. You can actually peel the layers apart.

Turkey day today! I'll make cornbread pudding (from the new Living Without holiday issue), mashed taters, gravy, and pumpkin pie shakes. I'm far too lazy to make a real pie on top of actual cooking.

When I start my gluten-free compound/settlement Lovie has to come cook for us! Probably give her the main house cause it will have the best kitchen.

Can't say what I'm having. :ph34r: Irish told me I can't say left-overs or a meal with less than 3 ingredients. :P

Steak with fried onions. Juice. And a carob coconut bar. My dad just came back from a trip and brought me those fabulous treats, as well as my always favorite soy chocolate aaaaand 2,5 kilos of almonds. Which makes me happy because I starved last week since I didn't have any almonds to make butter and neither could bake goodies with flaxseed flour (since I have to rotate the flours I bake with and the almonds were an hour away by car).

So I am a happy girl with my carob coconut bars and 2,5 kilos of almonds. I have almonds for the rest of my life.

Temptress! You kill me. :lol:

I love good fish and chips - the real thing, not the fake insipid purchased icky commercial stuff. Oh, and did I neglect to mention my homemade tartar sauce with lots of capers? Oh, man. I almost can't stand it.

The pecan rolls are good but need a couple of tweaks. At least they unroll like they should... :rolleyes:

And you know you would always be welcome here (as long as you and Sylvia shovel for us! :lol: )

Lovie will most def be our "chef" and we will give her whatever she needs. (I can help)

Sylvia will shovel the snow (that's a given--she promised) and I can't (whine whine--my arms. my shoulders)

And let us be clear...I said we call it "encores".

You told me a real meal has more than 3 ingredients. :)

And we would have a tractor or truck with a plow so you could " shovel"

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
