I simply do not have room on my counter to have the cookbook there to follow the recipe. So if it is a dish I am not familiar with, I make a copy of it on my printer and use my little recipe clip to hold it. If I don't have all the ingredients, I try to remember what I can use it place of it. Or I use the recipe to make it my own. But for me, if the ingredient list has 15 or more ingredients, that is a deal breaker for me. That recipe will never get made in my kitchen. Sometimes a recipe will have ingredients that I never use. Like anything hot. Whether it be a sauce or peppers. I don't do hot foods. My innards thank me for that rule. The Pirate and Spike love hot foods. So they can add their own hot sauce.

casserole, garden stuff, recipe

It has no business tasting this good casserole Ok, I threw together this stove top cooked casserole and it tastes sooo good. Here's what's in it, most picked fresh from the garden this afternoon. 1. Sweet full sized tomato, diced into bite-sized chunks. 2. overripe snap peas, threads removed, washed and shucked, about a cup. 3. fresh onion, diced 4. several perfect cherry tomatoes, with that great balance of sweet and tart. 5. 1/2 cucumber, diced. 1 cheese packet Kraft, cheesy southwest chipotle cheese sauce mix. 6. one and one-half tbs. ap flour 7. one and one-half tbs. butter 1/4 cup whipping cream milk. Black Pepper 1/2 lb. ground beef Melt butter and add the flour to make a roux. Lightly salt, and lightly brown. Add cream and stir in until absorbed. Add milk until you have a beautifully smooth sauce. Grate in fresh pepper to taste. Add all ingredients except the ground beef. Brown the ground beef. Season lightly with salt. Add the meat to the veggies and sauce. Cover and simmer for twenty minutes. Add the Kraft cheese sauce mix and stir. Add a little water if required. Cook for ten more minutes. Serve over toast, or in a bowl. Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North 3 stars 1 reviews
