Decided last Thursday that I was going to fix a decent meal on Monday, and had a hankering for something oriental- – which worked out well because I could include a trip to The Asian Market in Starkvegas Friday. It was delicious. Quite easy to make so long as you prep everything ahead of time.
So we had fried bologna sandwiches and macaroni salad. Very satisfying. Recall, fried bologna sandwiches are on the list of classic Southern food.
Homemade chorizo, naturally. Recipe here.
20+ lbs. Good to go for a few months.

I kid you not, I had never had Hoppin’ John before. Liked it. Seriously easy, too. Just go get you some blackeyes and tomatoes from your deep freezer, bacon from the fridge… Recipe calls for canned peas. We used 1lb. frozen.

Most weeks, I’m responsible for cooking one night. I failed to take this responsibility seriously last weekend when Mr. Big Food was working out the menu for this week. I knew I wanted a veggie plate, and I did have a hankering for spinach so picked some up when we did the shopping. Beyond that,
Originally posted late June, 2016. The French Potato Salad was an integral part of tonight’s Marica Cooks Monday Cold Supper. Earlier this afternoon I was recounting the making of this potato salad to Miss M. She asked what made it French. Good Question. I had no answer. But the recipe did instruct to do something I’d never
Originally posted late June, 2016. This was spectacular! I changed up the recipe– from Serve it Cold! A Cookbook of Delicious Cold Dishes (1968)– a bit and I’ll make note. The recipe makes extensive reference to fat– trimming it, skimming it. We just bought a half fully cooked smoked ham, like a Jeno turkey ham

If you are unfamiliar with Plate Lunches, they are a southern staple, served at fine restaurants and dives alike. Usually they consist of a choice of meat and choice of three side dishes. With the advent of vegetarianism in the south, some years ago, “vegetarian” plate lunches became available. You will soon see why the

(More info here; similar recipe here.) “This bread may be frozen and decorated
The Home Economists of the Crisco Kitchen at Proctor & Gamble recommended serving Seafood Neptune, Creamed Chicken, or Chow Mein over Fried Noodle Rings. Unfortunately, the pages for the first two recipes are missing from this crappy old paperback cookbook, so we’ll have to settle for authentic 1949 style Chow Mein. See the recipe for
The Crisco Kitchen is a practical sort of kitchen. Our team of Home Economists are more than scientific. They themselves keep house and understand the problems of preparing home-cooked meals. All of these recipes were tested in the Crisco Kitchen. Practically all were tested at home, as well. Forward to New Recipes for Good Eating
I don’t like it when the folks who write the blogs I read go into great detail about their health issues. And so I will spare you the details of my left sinus. I’m hoping the onions and garlic will do the trick. H/T to Dining with Donald for the periogie inspiration. Homemade. What a
Fancy Thursday! Man, it was good! Check back later for the green bean recipe, must be on Mr. Big Food’s computer. Do note that to the greens he added four stalks of fresh asparagus– and by fresh, I mean I walked outside, took out my pocket knife, and cut four stalks of tender asparagus. Variations
