I'm in the kitchen this morning cleaning my best buddy... The oven. And not to forget his side kick the microwave. I turned on the self cleaner last night. It helped the house stay nice an cozy during the cold weather that is coming through. Blessings CLAP

Buckboard bacon:

A seven to ten pound pork butt roast

Brine in enough water to completely cover the roast. Add 1/4 cup sea salt, 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, crushed garlic to taste, red pepper flakes to taste; brine for 4-7 days.

Drain well and smoke using your favourite technique. This one was smoked in a pit for 36 hours using mesquite.

Buckboard bacon

Sliced.

4 DOZEN OYSTERS SHUCKED, DRAIN BUT RESERVE LIQUID

1 1/2 t SALT

3/4 t COARSE BLACK PEPPER

1/2 C FINELY CHOPPED PARSLEY

MELT 8 T BUUTER IN LARGE POT OVER MED HEAT. ADD FLOUR..WISK CONSTANTLY FOR 3 MINS. STIR IN ONIONS/CELERY. CONTINUE COOKING AND STIR OCCASIONLY FOR 4 MINS.

STIR IN MILK, OYSTER LIQUID, AND GARLIC. SEASON WITH SALT/PEPPER TO TASTE. ADD SHERRY.

Hannah and I just made the easiest and best Crockpot Chocolate Peanuts.

CROCKPOT CHOCOLATE PEANUT CLUSTERS

16 OZ DRY ROASTED PEANUTS (SALTED)

1 BAR GERMAN CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE, COARSLY CHOPPED

16 OZ SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE MORSELS

LAYER IN CROCKPOT AS LISTED. DO NOT MIX. TURN ON CROCKPOT TO LOW. KEEP LID ON AND DO NOT LIFT IT FOR 2 HOURS.

AFTER 2 HOURS, STIR WELL. DROP BY 1/4 teaspoons* ONTO WAXED PAPER. COOL TILL ROOM TMEP THEN PLACE IN FRIDGE WITHOUT REMOVING THEM FROM PAPER.

AFTER A FEW HOURS, IF THEY ARE FIRM, PLACE IN AN AIRTIGHT CONTAINER AND KEEP IN FRIDGE.

TAKE WHAT YOU NEED FROM FRIDGE AND LET SIT FOR 15-30 MINS TO SOFTEN. I LIKE MINE TO STILL BE A BIT CHILLED.

MAKES 75 OR MORE BITE SIZE PIECES.

*YOU WANT THEM TO BE BITE SIZE BECAUSE THEY WILL MELT ON YOUR HANDS. BITE SIZE SOLVES THIS PROBLEM SINCE YOU ARE NOT HOLDING ON TO A LARGER CLUSTER.

MAKE SURE YOU PUT THEM IN A BOWL AND NOT HOLD SEVERAL IN HAND. IT IS THE HEAT OF HANDS THAT CAUSE MELTING. THERE IS NO MELTING ON A NAPKIN OR IN A BOWL.

YOU CAN USE MILK CHOCOLATE, WHITE CHOCOLATE, OR ANY YOU PREFER. YOU CAN ADD FRUITS OR MARSHMELLOWS OR ANY TYPE NUTS.

I PLAN TO MAKE NEXT BATCH USING TOASTED WALNUTS AND CRASINS. THEN NEXT BATCH USING CASHEWS.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL RECIPE TO MAKE YOUR OWN. AND THE EASE IS FANTASTIC. PLUS, THE MOST IMPRORTANT FACTOR...SUPER YUMMY!

My Younger son says he wants to go vegetarian, so today I'm making Gyros with a meat substitute, Tempeh. this is a soy product from Indonesia. I've had it marinating over night in the fridge. Tempeh can also be used to make burgers. Take a look at the picture of this product

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempeh

We had this recipe at a vegan restaurant we visited. CLAP

The meat substitute was very good, it was all in the spices. Nothing unusual lots of garlic and onion. Here is the recipe. you will need to marinade over night. CLAP

Oh my....so much food. I was trying to go thru all of that and i know i used to fix a pork butt in dr pepper in the crock pot and some other similar foods. These kids have about ruined me. One won't eat fish, another won't eat chicken - no crock pot food - one doesn't really like pork - the list goes on and on. That's what comes of trying to finish raising kids who come to you high school age. My husband is early diabetic and my dr tells me very little sugar, and to eat low fat and high fiber.

All that food sounded so good.

This makes me want to go back to cooking again. I'll have to substitute some ingredients and not look at the desserts too much (yes i cheat) Yum!!!!!
