How come no one on GLP uses a bread machine?

It maybe costs $300 but the machine pays for itself after 6 months.

it's not that hard to mix and knead bread. You can use the opportunity to knead the heck out of the dough and pretend it's someone who's getting on your nerves...lol

Kasha:

This is a Slavic porridge. I quite like it and it's easy to assemble.

Pour half a cup of buckwheat into a cup of water. Mix in salt and vinegar. Allow this to sit until the buckwheat softens. Simmer the concoction on low for several minutes. After, you may wish to garnish it with spices, goat cheese, and olive oil.

Posca:

This is essentially the forefather of Gatorade, which despite its description, is tasty. The Roman legions and American railroad workers drank versions of this this out of their canteens.

Pour two tablespoons of red wine vinegar into 250 millilitres of water. Honey and coriander seed make great embellishments.

Cinnamon rolls using bisquick. I made these last night and they were pretty good.

3 cups bisquick
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
3tbsp butter
Cinnamon

Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.

Beat the egg and mix together. Makes a soft dough. Roll out to a rectangle, about 10 x 8 inches. I did this direct on the cookie sheet I used to bake it. I dusted the cookie sheet with a bit of bisquick so it didn't stick.

Melt 3 tbsp butter and slather onto the dough rectangle.

Sprinkle cinnamon on top of that. I like a lot of cinnamon.:)

Roll up, use the long side to start rolling. You'll have to keep bisquick or some flour on your hands or you'll stick to it.

Roll it up tight, then pinch together where it meets. Put the pinched edges underneath, you'll have to flip this long roll.

Then about every inch or so, slice the roll almost all the way through.

Bake until nice and brown and done in the middle. 15 to 20 minutes. Check middle and make sure it's done. If not, put it back in for a few more minutes.

This was quick, easy and cheap. Nice dessert for a little bit of $.

I use mine on the kneading cycle. :) But I bake the bread in the oven as rolls. I don't care for the loaves the breadmaker makes.

Also, you can get a breadmaker for way cheaper than 300 dollars.

Its only about €1 for a batch or pan here which would do you for 2 days. We also have products you can oven cook for freshness. Im a gadget queen but theres only so many gadgets and appliances you can own and store.

these're the shit


Bacon Wrapped Potato Bites

ingredients

1 pound small or medium red potatoes
2 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon olive oil
Freshly ground pepper
12 ounces to 1 pound thick-cut bacon
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1-3 teaspoons hot sauce
Salt and pepper
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Wash and dry the potatoes. Chop them into 1-inch pieces, keeping the chunks roughly the same size even if they aren't the exact same shape. Put the potatoes in a medium pot, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil. Season the water with 2 teaspoons of salt. Once the water begins to boil, cook the potatoes for 3 to 4 minutes, until you can stick a fork into them without too much resistance. You want the potatoes to be almost, but not fully, cooked through so they won't fall apart during the next steps.

Drain the potatoes and put them in a large bowl. Add the rosemary, olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and a few grinds of pepper, and toss until the potatoes are evenly coated.

Cut the strips of bacon into thirds. Wrap each potato bite in a piece of bacon, securing it with a toothpick. Put the potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil spaced an inch or two apart. You may need to cook the potatoes in two batches.

Cook the potatoes for 15 minutes, then flip each piece. Cook for another 15 to 20 minutes, until the bacon is cooked through and as crisp as you like it. Mix the sour cream and hot sauce in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Pile the potato bites on a plate and serve alongside the dip.

Oh, that sounds soooo good!
 Quoting: waterlily


I make something very similar using tater-tots! Very easy and a big hit!! I let them thaw just enough to get the toothpick through the bacon and the tot.

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
Agreed! Anchovies are yummy and I like to have one or two with a glass or red wine. I love fish, so I also like sardines and my Portuguese friends doing them on barbeque, delicious! Herrings are very popular dish in my old country and we eat them often. Here is my receipt and I call it “Polish Sushi”... LOL

HERRINGS IN OIL:

6-8 herrings fillets without bones
1 large white onion, chopped
1/3-1/2 cup oil
2-3 tsp. white vinegar
black ground pepper to taste
1-2 cornichons, chopped (optional)

- Wash fillets and soak them for 2 hours in cold water. Drain the water, rinse the fillets and soak them again for another 2 hours in fresh cold water to get rid of the salt
- Drain and cut filets in small pieces, approximately 3 cm wide and place them in shallow dish
- Put on top chopped onions and eventually cornichons
- Mix oil with vinegar and pour over fillets with onions

Marinate them at least 2-3 hours before eating and they are even better the next day. Can stay in the fridge for 5 days.

You can eat them with bread or with hot boiled potatoes. Do not heat herrings fillets! This is perfect side dish if you have quests over for vodka. LOL

:LIEDC: :BYWSA: :ORFDC:

You may substitute oil for sour cream of the amount of your choice, but then, do not add vinegar.

:DCWEA:


HERRINGS ROULADES:

Same ingredients as in previous receipt. At the end of each herring fillet put 1/4 cornichon sliced long side and 1 slice of onion. Roll the fillets and secure each one with 2 toothpicks. Pour oil/vinegar mixture over.

:UHNDS:


POTATO – HERRING SALAD:

4 large red or white potatoes, boiled in skin
4 eggs, boiled
2 cornichons, chopped
1/4 red onion, chopped
2-4 herring fillets soaked twice for 2 hours each time in fresh cold water and cut in small pieces
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
salt and pepper
2 spoons of sour cream (optional)

- Boil potatoes for approximately 40-50 minutes, drain and remove skin when they cool down, cut in medium pieces and put in a medium bowl
- Boil eggs and cut in small pieces, add to potatoes
- Add cornichons, onions, herrings and salt/pepper to taste
- Mix everything with mayonnaise and sour cream

meatless chili

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp. canola oil
1 large onion, diced
3-4 bell peppers, diced
4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup chili powder
1 Tbsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground chipotle chili powder, or a few teaspoons of puree from canned chipotles in adobo sauce
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. dried Mexican oregano
Two 14 oz. cans diced tomatoes with juice
One 14 oz. can tomato sauce
4-5 cups cooked black beans
salt, to taste
fresh cilantro
diced avocado
fresh tomato
red or green onion

Instructions:

Heat the oil in a large stock pot. Add the onion and cook until it starts to brown. Add the peppers and garlic. Cook until peppers start to soften. Lower heat as necessary so garlic doesn’t burn. Add the spices (except for oregano) and stir-fry until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and tomato sauce. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pan really well and stir everything together. Add the oregano and black beans. Lower heat to a low simmer. Cover and let cook for at least 30 minutes, or longer for flavors to meld. Serve over cornbread with desired garnishes.

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
Here's one I just found and tried.

Monkey Bread

A great, tasty special breakfast or dessert idea is monkey bread. If you shop at ALDI, it's even cheaper than the grocery store.

1)Take 4 cans of regular-size buttermilk biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters.

2)Make a cinnamon-sugar mixture (1/2 cup sugar, 1 tbsp cinnamon) and roll biscuit pieces in mixture.

3)Drop pieces into a greased bunt pan

4)Pour a brown sugar syrup over top (stick of margarine melted in microwave and 1 cup brown sugar stirred in), and bake for 45 minutes at 350.

Pull apart with fingers or fork and eat while still warm. Put a lean salad with this and it could be lunch or supper.

I found another one that used vanilla pudding in with the brown sugar syrup. I think I might try that next time.

I did these in muffin pans, and have also used bread pans.
They cook a bit faster in the muffin pans, but are a bit less messy.

Very delicious!

Happy Birthday! Fellow Aquarius...;)

Buy fryer chicken for .99/pound on sale. Buy three or four and freeze the rest.

Chop up a medium onion, brown in 2-3 TBSP butter. Add one or two chic buillion cubes and a good spanking of sage. Keep stirring. Deglaze with a half a cup of water, let reduce until juicy not soupy.

Meanwhile, toast 3 or four slices of bread, cube in 1/2 inch chunks. Add to your onions/sage and set aside.
(my mama also used diced celery in her stuffing)

In the meantime you have washed and cleaned your chicken. I like to soak it in salt water for at least an hour while I am peeling the vegs see below. Nana said it drew the blood out & made for a more tender bird. I will also add that salt water does not agree with some bacteria such as salmonella. Staph likes salt...but not heat.

Wrap giblets in foil. Roast on the pan with the chicken. Give the kids or yourself the cooked liver when you are finishing the gravy. Pick the meat off the neck and give to the cats with the chopped heart and gizzard.

Put the stuffing in the chicken.

Put the stuffed chicken in a 350F oven for about two hours. You really want to cook it good, until you can "shake a leg"

Take your chicken out of the pan and put on a platter. During the last half hour, your have boiled a pot of cubed peeled potatoes until tender you bought last fall for $7 a 50 pound bag. Drain.

In another pot you have scraped and sliced a half dozen carrots and cooked til tender. Drain.

Put salt and a couple tablespoons of butter and a good splash of milk and beat your potatoes. Put a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of brown sugar into the carrots.

Put your roasting pan on a burner and reduce the juices until they look shiny. Throw in another chicken bouillon cube and enough flour to soak up the liquid, stirring, stirring stirrin.

SLOWLY add milk (or water) stirring constantly...if you go too fast you will get lumps. Once you have it going you can add the last bit of liquid in a rush and let it simmer stirring occasionally.

You now have a roast chicken dinner for four.

With any leftover chicken, you can pick it cold, dice the meat, add some raisins and chopped apple & mayo for the best chicken salad ever!

Leftover gravy and chicken? chop the chicken, add the gravy, drop by spoonfuls into bread crumbs shapeinto patties and fry each side until brown...best chicken croquettes ever.

My nana would have offered jello for an inexpensive dessert and cheese biscuits as well...(dice up cheese of your choice and put in your biscuit dough)

Happy Birthday.

Roast chicken dinner stuffing addendum!!!

I forgot to explain...

Put the HOT stuffing in the bird and put the bird right in the preheated oven. DO NOT put cold stuffing in the bird! DO NOT pre-stuff the bird and let it sit around OR refridgerate it!

After the bird is cooked, it can rest a half hour or so, but then remove the stuffing and eat it, or remove it and refridgerate it, and then THROROUGHLY reheat any leftover stuffing.

The issue with bacteria is they like warm temps, if you put the hot stuffing in and put the bird right in the oven, you give the bird a jump start to cooking.

Bacteria want about four hours of warm temps...your bird will be cooked through by then.

and if you try and cool the a stuffed bird it will take too long, so get the stuffing out while it's hot.

If you feel uncomfortable about stuffing the bird, the stuffing is great right out of the pan.

Here's one I just found and tried.

Monkey Bread

A great, tasty special breakfast or dessert idea is monkey bread. If you shop at ALDI, it's even cheaper than the grocery store.

1)Take 4 cans of regular-size buttermilk biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters.

2)Make a cinnamon-sugar mixture (1/2 cup sugar, 1 tbsp cinnamon) and roll biscuit pieces in mixture.

3)Drop pieces into a greased bunt pan

4)Pour a brown sugar syrup over top (stick of margarine melted in microwave and 1 cup brown sugar stirred in), and bake for 45 minutes at 350.

Pull apart with fingers or fork and eat while still warm. Put a lean salad with this and it could be lunch or supper.

I found another one that used vanilla pudding in with the brown sugar syrup. I think I might try that next time.

I did these in muffin pans, and have also used bread pans.
They cook a bit faster in the muffin pans, but are a bit less messy.

Very delicious!

If you are sick of the same old sloppy joes, bake some potatoes, then put slop on top. You can add cheese, sour cream, chives, etc. Add a side salad or green beans and you have a completely filling meal.

This way it is not as sloppy and you don't have to eat 2 sandwiches to get filled!

So many great ideas! cheer

SMOKE MACKEREL SPREAD:

salt and pepper to taste
olives or slices of cucumber for garnish, optional

:LEJYG: :YHDRF:

4 Tbsp. yellow cheese, shredded
1-2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
sliced tomatoes or radishes for garnish, optional

- Repeat preparation as above

:GWLOR: :UGESC:


1 smoke mackerel, bones and skin removed

1-2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
1 cornichon, finely chopped or shredded and drained from juice before added to the mackerel mixture (or) slices of cornichon for garnish, optional

You may just mash mackerel with mayo adding salt/pepper to taste and put slices of eggs on top of your bread with the spread and have cornichon on the side, optional, of course :))

This smoke mackerel spread is much tastier than tuna salad. And is perfect for sammiches!

Re: GLP Recession Proof Meals - Cooking goes a long way in lieu of buying crap
Really good:

2 Cups Cooked Ham (diced)
1 Med. White Onion (diced)
1 (4oz.) Diced Green Chilies
3 TBSP Flour
1 C. Half/Half
4 Eggs
1 1/2 Cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Salt/Pepper Butter

Preheat oven to 350

Start by melting 4 TBSP butter, pour over the hash browns, stir until well coated. Add in salt/pepper to taste. Now FRY in a skillet until brown and crispy. Place into a lightly sprayed 9×9 inch pan. Saute onion, chilies and ham in the skillet until onions are fork tender. Now place this mixture over the hash browns in the pan. In a small bowl beat together the eggs, flour and half/half and cheese. Pour this over all the other ingredients in the pan. Bake for 40 minutes, or until golden brown around edges. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

This is too easy to be so good:

Raisin Pudding

1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 C. Milk
1 C. Raisins
3 TBSP. Butter~ melted
1 C. Sugar
2 C. All Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Cinnamon

4 C. Water
2 C. Brown Sugar (packed)
1/4 C. Butter

Combine the first (9) ingredients together. Pour into a lightly greased slow cooker.

Bring the water, brown sugar and butter to a boil. Then pour over the batter in your slow cooker.

Cover with lid, set on low for 4 hours -- remove lid the last 30 minutes of baking.

This magically makes a cake with a raisin pudding underneath. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

How come no one on GLP uses a bread machine?

It maybe costs $300 but the machine pays for itself after 6 months.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 53656511


it's not that hard to mix and knead bread. You can use the opportunity to knead the heck out of the dough and pretend it's someone who's getting on your nerves...lol

 Quoting: old guard


This recipe works every time. It is the BEST bread and requires no kneading -- just a few hours of foresight.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH:
Alan Isaacman
The People Vs Larry Flynt
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."
