What's For Dinner Tonight?

Recommended Posts

:hugegrin:

 

Well, since we have such a diverse bunch of campers here at WildSurvive, I thought I'd start a thread of what we are all going to make for dinner. It doesn't have to be any special meal, it can be the everyday too. I thought this would be a good recipe exchange thread.

 

I'll start the first post....

Well............We had cropies, poppers, brocilli , and applesauce tonight for our supper. We had cropies two nights in a row, but I could eat fish 5 times a week.....Good stuff....

 

Uh Doro  :/  its crappies (fish) broccoli, and I have no idea what poppers are.

I picked up some dried New Mexico chili while I was in New Mexico and so I made some chili roja (red chili) or some know it as Chili Colorado.

 

The sauce is real simple, you start with a basic roux

 

2 TBL shortening

2 TBL flour

stir till bubbling then mix in 1/4 to 3/4 cup of chili powder (depending on your palette)

then stir in 2 cups of water (you can use beef stock too)

3/4 tsp salt

 

Stir and let simmer about 15 minutes.

 

Ok, now this red sauce is going to be used on an old old old recipe that is getting harder and harder to find. This was passed down through many generations in my family.

 

separate 8 eggs and beat the whites until frothy like meringue

 

mix a TBL of flour in the yolks and add a TBL of camarrones (dried powdered shrimp)

 

THen fold it all together

 

Heat up a few TBL of oil in a frying pan and drop mix (about three TBL full) into the oil turn and fry. this recipe will make about 12 - 15 little fried "eggs" and let drain on a paper towel.

 

Then gently mix all the fried eggs into the chili roja and simmer a minute or two and serve hot. Sprinkle grated asadero or cotija cheese on top and serve with refried beans.

 

If desired, you can top with fresh chopped  cilantro.

 

YUM YUM!!!!!!

That sounds really good Rocky.

 

Tonight dinner was a simple affair. Late last night I browned all surfaces of a three pound chuck roast in a little hot oil then put the roast, five carrots cut into 2 inch sections, six potatoes cut into quarters length ways, a couple of onions and a pack of McCormick slow cooker beef stew mix and in 1 and 1/3 cups water into a crock pot and let it slow cook for ten hours, turned down to keep warm for a while and vuala dinner, all you need is bowls and forks. Though this is normaly served with corn bread here tonight we had french bread.

Hey, you try making taco shells from scratch... with a whinning 9-month old hangin' off your pant leg and a slightly overweight dog drooling at your feet waiting for falling scraps.

 

Ain't gonna happen my friend.

 

Old El Paso is my friend and saviour!!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I did do that Blue! Twice!

 

It's easy Blue! Get a pie pan and put about 1/4 inch of white vinegar in it. preheat the oven to 300F. Soak the corn tortillas in the vinegar for about 2 or 3 seconds and then fold the tortilla around the middle oven rack (like hanging a towel on a rack) so it makes a taco shape. Do a dozen and bake until crispy. The vinegar evaporates and has not taste on the taco shells.

 

That's the "fat free" easy way.

 

El Paso aint so bad either.....

~ Tuna Casserole! :thumbsup: :P

 

two packages of Starkist Tuna Creations (Lemon Pepper flavored)

 

a cup or "so" of cooked noodles (whatever you have)

 

a can of english peas (rinsed)

 

a can of cream of mushroom soup

 

a soup can of Mayo

 

mix up all that junk....

 

butter a casserole dish

 

dump it in. (Oh... heat your oven to 350)

 

put some grated cheese on top (whatever you have)

 

I crunch up RITZ crackers on top of the cheese, and drizzel them with REAL butter.

 

and bake for about 35 minutes!

 

I feel that the crunching up of the crackers in my own hands lends a certain homemade flare to the dish. :smoke:

(Just wondering what a chef's dog eats.)  :P

That's a good question Taken...

 

~ Thanks! I thunk it up myself. :hugegrin:

 

My dogs eat Blue Wilderness dry dog food mixed with one half can of Blue Buffalo Venison canned dog food.   I mix it up, microwave it for exactly 45 seconds, and put it in their bowls. They gobble it up like it's fillet mignon.
