I'm going to have to google hominy as I have no clue what that is. Sorry! I remember moving to the west coast and having no idea how to eat an artichoke, no I'm a pro! I love Oregon but everytime I go to visit I miss the amazing bounty of produce we have here in California. You don't realize what you have until you leave it!

Hominy is whole dried corn that's been soaked in (the olden days) a mixture of water and lye to soften up the kernels. Not so sure if thats what they do to it now though. My grandparents used to make their own and that's how they did it. Soaked it in big pottery crocks. Lye was used alot back then for different things. Granny made her own lye by pouring water over her woodstove and firplace ashes and used it to make hominy and lye soap. After a visit you were clean inside and out...Whew!

I remember my mother telling me about making lye soap when they were kids.

And I love your signature line! LOL!

Slight hi-jack...

I still make lye soap. (And I'm in my 30s)

Only I used bottled lye instead of ashes and bottled oils instead of tallow or lard... but basically the same thing.

Ravioli, steamed green beans and garlic bread. It is only 2:00, and I am hungry.

not sure what's for dinner...we had chinese last night (it was my b-day, so no cooking for me!) and I had root canal work done today, so whatever it is will be soft and easy to eat...ravioli actually sounds perfect...hmmmmm

I've never been big on grits or cous cous...I'm pretty plain jane...potatoes, rice, pasta -- those are my carbs

lye -- isn't that that stuff you hear on those crime shows, to clean up after a murder, or make the smell go away or something???

Sure is. Also used to make meth... which means it's impossible to find in stores anymore.

It's highly caustic in its raw form... I think it's used after a murder to dispose of the remains.... though you'd need a lot of it.

When you mix lye and oils you get soap... it's a chemical reaction and is no longer either lye or oils. It's a pretty precise formula to make sure you use up all your lye molecules with oil moluecules to make sure your soap isn't lye-heavy.

O.K., this is turning weird really quick, lol, but I used to work for a ship chandler and once a ship came in from Greece and one of the crew members had died and they ordered a bunch of lye to preserve the body until they got back to Greece. I'll never forget that.

Denise, can you tell us how to make the soap? [maybe in a new thread?]

my g'ma used to make it and I'd like to learn. I signed up for a class at a local park but it got cancelled due to lack of interest.

And where to you get lye now if you can't get it in stores?

You can order lye from various hazard chemical distributors. Also, many soap supply companies carry it in stock.

Some hardware stores still carry it, but it's getting harder to find.

Soapmaking is not for the timid... It's a careful chemistry experiment. There are lots of soapmaking sites on the internet... www.fromnaturewithlove.com is one of my favorites - they have a lot of good how-to articles and a lye calculator. It's sorta like stamping - easy to get carried away with all the wonderful oils and scents and colors and all the possibilities!

My favorite soap I make (keeping this food related) is a coffee soap that I use coffee bean butter in. It's YUM!!!!

We WERE supposed to have grilled cheese and tomato soup tonight (that was after the ham and scalloped potatoes got nixed due to Emberlyn being sick), but that too got nixed. I was supposed to have an ultrasound at 6pm, we had to take Emberlyn to the ER and were in and out of there rather quickly consider, but diagnostics were running at least 1.5 hrs behind schedule due to 2 emergency ultrasounds. So I had to cancel and tell them I'll reschedule. Went to get her Rx filled and it was taking at least 1/2 hr at WM (the only pharmacy open), so we grabbed Arby's for dinner. Blech.

We had skinless boneless chicken breasts, baked in salsa, with rice pilaf ( seasoned with freeze dried shallots- ooh! yum!) and green beans. To appease DH (sissy man) it was made with Pace extra mild salsa, because he told me Pace mild is a little "edgy" for him!

Thanksgiving in a pan- modified.

Here's the recipe in my book:

1 package stuffing mix (I use 2- we like our stuffing)
2 1/2 cups cubed cooked turkey (I use chicken and about 2 lbs of it)
2 cups frozen green beans; thawed (We decided to use canned super sweet corn; drained)
1 jar (12 oz) turkey gravy (I use two)

Directions:

Prepare stuffing according to box. Transfer to a greased 11 x 7 pan. Add chicken/turkey, green beans/corn and top with gravy.

Cover and put in a 350 degree oven for 30-35 mins until heated through.

Here's what it looks like (I forgot to take a picture on my plate so I took one of the leftovers in the bowl ):

Thank you!!

Jac - sorry you had to go to the ER, but glad you've got some answers...hope she feels better!

We wound up having leftovers... 1 had spaghetti, 1 had a different pasta, not sure what DH had...and I had some vegetable fried rice...

we have a parade tomorrow -- so it will likely be something on the road, or quick when we get home...

The church dinner was cancelled because of bad weather, so instead of heating up the kitchen, DH stopped at our favorite sub shop on his way home from work and picked up sub sandwiches. Thinking baked salmon and a salad for tonight...something light.

I think tonight we'll have the ham and scalloped potatoes. They are forecasting a high of 54 for today. I think it must be late September, but what REALLY SUCKS is that I'm still pregnant. Plus I have out (erm I mean in) laws in town, talk about stressful.

That's interesting, I've never heard of calabacita squash. Around here, we eat a mexican side dish called "calabacitas", which is a combination of squash, corn and green chili. It is delish. Maybe that's the type of squash they use over there? We use pretty much any variety.

Do you ever eat posole? Hominy is what's in it, usually with pork or chicken and either red or green chili.

I needed something sort of low cal tonight as I had nachos for lunch which consumed over half my daily calorie allowance. Gaining weight is so much more fun than losing!

We had baked shrimp with diced tomatoes and feta on top, rice, and asparagus.

It is still hot here and will be for quite some time, so I really need to plan out some meals that can be grilled or crock pot.

Yes, the store bought ones just don't measure up to a home grown tomato. Ours are finally ripe enough to pick and enjoy. We did pick some green ones to fry...love those as well, but my favorite way to eat them is on bread with Dukes mayonnaise and a little black pepper.

We make what my Mom used to call "Jam" sandwiches- you fry up a pound of bacon, and jam it into 2 sandwiches. None of those 3 slice BLTs for us, no sir! And I have to have onion on mine, too.
As to the green tomatoes, we always dice green tomato and add to okra when we fry it. It doesn't taste right to me without the green tomato! I've even got my Brit picky eater husband to eat okra! Can't convince him on cabbage, though.

Hello!

Hit the Farmer's Market this morning and bought some fresh halibut for the grill tonight. I want to cook red potatoes on the grill too. I think we will have steak tomorrow as hubby is probably craving some red meat since I didn't cook any this week.

I hit our farmer's market this morning too but all they have is chicken and at $9 each- that's alittle too high on my price range.

I did pick up some pickles and broccoli and my MIL gave me fresh green beans. Tonight I have broiled chicken cordon bleu's on my menu but my old roommate and his girlfriend may come over... If they do I may stick with my menu or make hamburgers with onions in them and hotdogs with creamy pickles and green beans. YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tonight we're having a BBQ with Ryan's grandma, an Aunt and a family friend that are up from Detroit. Hot dogs, brats and chicken.

I'm on bed rest so they are doing all the work, HAHHAHA!

Michelle - There is a steak vendor and it was $25 a pound for a ribeye. The fish is more in line with any place.

Jaclyn - Sorry to hear you are on bed rest. Hope your BBQ food is yummy!

I'm trying to decide how to cook our halibut. I usually foil packet it with butter and herbs but I'm trying to cook healthier so I may marinade it in something instead. I like to put a cliantro, lime, butter and ginger all together to top it. Ugh! Darn cholestol.

My old roommate and his girlfriend was here when Joey and I got back from our neighbor boys b-day parties so I ended up thawing hamburger in the microwave and making 8- 1/4 burgers.

4 with onions 4 without and hotdogs. Jesse grilled them all up and I also cut up the pickles and made them with mayo, sugar and vinegar then the green beans and also made a chocolate pound cake for dessert all within an hour.

I am not sure what I am going to make tonight. Alex is taking a nap right now- 11:57 am and when he gets up we are going to Space Aliens for lunch which more than likely won't be until 1.

So with eating a late lunch I will not make the pork roast which is on my menu- I think that we will just have what is left from last night. Which is fine by me- I've got lots of cleaning to do.
