    Corn Meal Uses - suggestions please?

    I saw that show, it was a repeat. LOL I made it last week. It was very rich. Michael Chiarello (sp?) also made polenta, I made his too. Emeril made polenta too...and guess what?! I made it. I have been making polenta for a week and a half so far. I think I am done now

    Corn Meal Uses - suggestions please?

    Yes, stirring was necessary. To date I have been adding stuff to the mix before I pour it into a loaf pan. Sausage, bacon, sun dried tomatoes have worked nicely. I have fried the slices and baked them as well. Its been a nice change from the ususal starch sources. I was hoping to mix things...

    Corn Meal Uses - suggestions please?

    I thought of the usual topical uses such as for fish and other meats. What I really wanted was to "make" something like a bread. I have been searching the web and so far I have some lawn fertilizer and a couple facial mixtures - LOL@me

    Corn Meal Uses - suggestions please?

    I bought a bag of Instant Corn Masa Mix and made the creamiest polenta I ever had. Since I bought this product for the polenta only, I am curious what others use corn meal for. This product is a fine mix like flour, unlike other corn meal products I have purchased.

    And if you were a prisoner, you were not fed lobster more than once a week as it was considered inhumane.

    Your favorite restaurants off the beaten path...

    I spoke of Pizzolanti's before on theis list. Its a small family restaurant outside of Buffalo in Farnham, NY...or is it Irving? Both are equally small towns. One has a water tower, the other has the post office LOL Pizzolanti's chef is a woman close to her 90's! Real down home atmosphere...

    So imagine you could put your own food business...

    There is a small town in Potter County Pa called Austin. There's a building for sale and i would convert that to a Bed & Breakfast, catering to the needs of hunters and fishermen. I'd live there and construct my daily menues....and pack luches for the 12 (?) guests I have from spring through...

    any foods you're hooked on?

    I was pretty hooked on Beer-can chicken for a while, but since the season changed and the grill is put away I got over it. Now I am still working on that ham salad you guys helped me make. PS - Brother is 43 today and I turn 45 Monday! Life is good!

    Tonights Midnight Snack

    I was watching Tombstone for the 100th time and it struck me around 1:30am - I had to have some tenderloin and a pinch of horseradish on a slice of toasted Italian Bread. I cut it into small triangles and savored every bite.

    what to do with Ham?

    Many thanks to all - these ideas are great and I made some notes. I do have the bone waiting for soup. Its in the freezer until after the new year. I was really stuck in the traditional bean or pea soup. Now with our storm coming in and terrible riving weather, I will have plenty to keep me busy

    what to do with Ham?

    I have a ton of ham leftover and it was a little on the salty side...any ideas on what I can do with it - aside from a bean and potato mix. I thought of quiche, but it doesn't appeal. I am hoping for some ideas here, thanks

    Your favorite non-alcoholic beverages?

    I like mine with a splash of olive juice on the rocks. If I add the vermouth it would be a dirty martini - but that's all I am saying...for now

    Well its offical I'm in charge of Thanksgiving Dinner

    My sister was overwhelmed with the thought of cooking her first bird. I reassured her by reminding her that she is really only intimidated because it is such a large thing to cook. Once you are over that, its a walk in the park.
