Jan, try those greens with maple flavored bacon.My gal,who is a terrific campfire cook, bought some by mistake. Being all she had handy, she flavored the greens with them. WOW!! She made enough greens to feed an army, but 3 of us ate them all and were begging for more !! The best greens I have ever had, and I lived in Florida for 25 years !!

We are having deer and veggies soup. A real big one, so I can freeze some small containers for small meals later. Yum, yum.

I made a big pot of fresh veggie beef soup yesterday so it would be ready for today and tomorrow
Cold weather and a good soup go good together. Warms the body and gives you great healthy food.
Dixiecrat sammiches tonight...
Jan 7, 2014
Forgive my stupidity, J.J.-What exactly is in a Dixiecrat Sandwich ?? Sounds like you're filleting Southern politicians !! Not a bad idea,mind you, but they generally have too much fat and not enough substance to 'em- LOL My curoius mind would like to know !!
LMAO John. That is what it sounds like
Sounds good to me!
We call that type sandwich a wrap around.
Jan 8, 2014
J.J- Sounds good and the name is appropriate. Lots of pork covered up by something else and wrapped in a blanket !! LOL- Is this a sandwich or a new bill proposal ?? LMAO
Sunday Meatloaf. And baked potato. And Corn with Green Beans and Bacon.

Not sure yet what we're having tonight. Something fast though. Got to get ready for a big tv night. NCIS at 8:00 and then the new Mini Series Klondike at 9:00.
It's turning colder, so I'm cooking a chicken and smoked sausage Gumbo.
Craig, now I want a meatloaf and baked potato!!!
Well, we ended up having Country Ham, Egg and Cheese on Biscuits (everything is better with cheese).
Gained to much weight lately: so I have been cutting down - Cereal in the morning, soup for lunch, a slimfast shake for supper - and that's about all. Lost 4 lb since the Crusie.

Ron, I've been wanting to put up a recipe for a Cajun Gumbo but I'll have to measure everything I use, first. You see I have been doing it for so long I just throw everything together without measuring. The next one I cook I'll try measure.
The boys are swimming hard the last two weeks getting ready for a meet in St.Louis this weekend. I am having a hard time feeding them!! I asked them what they wanted for supper and my 9 year old Bryce, said dad I really want some meat!! I said how does pot roast sound? He said that will work!
That looks good, Brian.
we're having something "Mexican".
Robert, Cass and I are anxious to have that Cajun Gumbo recipe. We love Cajun food!
Okay Craig, I'll try get one going for ya'll.
Craig, do you know how to make a Roux or do they sell it in your area?

Homemade Bean soup - from the Ham bone from Christmas.
I love bean soup. Is it white bean soup?
Yes, white beans and it is delicious
My father was a bean salesman, well he sold B.F. Trappeys Cajun food products. I tell everyone my dad raised me on beans. Thing is I still love beans.
Blizzard conditions here today, snowing and blowing, up to 20 degree but dropping to 4 tonight. I have to go get corn today.
Homemade Chili today.
Jan 25, 2014
Got home OK, used 4 wheel drive, roads drifting. I put a TM Salt Block on a shovel and pulled it back in the woods. 10-12" snow at the farm. Just 3 1/2 miles from the house. Good to be home - can't wait for the Chili.
Homemade Chili sounds good Ken, -4 degrees dont LOL
It's supposed to sleet tonight and snow tomorrow. We are not use to this type weather here in south Louisiana. I am gonna cook a shrimp and Andouille Gumbo for supper. It will help keep us warm.
Jan 27, 2014
Suppose to get -9 here by morning. That's to cold. We had leftover Chili with Spaghetti in it. Man was that good.
It hit 67 here today.
Weather guy on the radio said that we've got 100% chance of SNOW tomorrow into Wednesday...
I'm gonna have to make me a pair of snow shoes....lol Ken -9, that's just too cold. Please everyone, stay safe and warm.
