Saturday Dinner 3/31

I'm going to make the stir-fry with black bean sauce, beef and mushrooms I passed on yesterday.

@ Bolas,

Good Afternoon,

How do you brine your turkey ? With citrus, or apple ? Fruit brines have such lovely aromas ...

Kind regards.
Margi.

I think it will be "big pot of chicken soup day" in the Beier house today.

We both have horrendous colds and are taking it easy to see if we can get better for Monday when the rat race begins again.

Blech on the colds, LP! Feel better soon!

After all the talk of beans and rice, think I will make, ummm, uhh, oh yeah! Beans and rice! Spelunking the freezer, I found some presoaked black and pinto beans, got ham and kielbasa, will try Patty's spice mix.

Edit: I did a variation on .40's TNT, much yummage!

Sorry to hear that you have terrible colds ... chicken soup is always healing ...
Try a touch of curry or a pinch of cayenne !!! It knocks it out ... or smoked paprika ...

Have a nice wkend, feel better,
Margi Cintrano.

Thanks, Margi, for the tip and the well wishes. I have used cayenne in my soup but never curry - going to try that one as we love chicken and curry!

Curry and cayenne are fab in fighting bacterias and colds ... Give it a try ... Glad that you enjoy curry ... It is very good for flus too.

Kind regards and speedy recovery.
Margi.
