Crap ILS, I forgot to mention the chili, now you've really made me hungry. I'm going to pull out the powder, onions, jalapenos, cumin, cayan pepper, a pound of deer meat.........gather up some herbs from the garden, get the black iron skillet heated and ready for some honey cornbread baking, and conjure up a nice pot of Texas chili with beans.

When's the last time you had a thick steaming bowl of Texas Chili? Well .........that's too long!

Not tried Parsnip mash but have a great love for mashed swede with a big dollop of butter.


You may like parsnip mash. My personal preference is for one part parsnip per two parts potato - with butter. Use smaller parsnips for a sweeter taste. It’s very tasty with honey and mustard sausages.

I am sorry,but sweet potato is wrong on so many levels.I think possibly the best meal in the entire universe is a full English Breakfast with a big mug of strong tea!

Nope.....Steak, well done with steak sauce.....with potatoes, either fried or mashed(with gravy then) and some cornbread with butter....Washed down with a big mug of strong tea, without milk...... Now thats a manly breakfast to get you up and going in the day....

If you are doing breakfast then it's scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, chorizo, and some cheese all wrapped in a warm flour torilla with some nice salsa on the side with a Dr. Pepper.

Pecan pie.

Or for breakfast mayhaw jelly on buttered biscuits.  We have a couple of mayhaw trees/bushes.  Wife makes her own jelly.  Also have a pear tree that produces well and wife makes pear preserves and pear butter, but the mayhaw jelly is the best.

One of my favourites is Steak and Kidney pie,cooked very slowly for about 4 hours.I had a German friend,who was rather interested in English Traditional food,and didnt understand what kidney was,so he translated it.................and came back with "i am not eating pissfilter pies".So now we call it Pissfilter pie.LOL

Chesapeake bay blue crabs steamed in beer, with a beer on the side, followed up with scalded oysters, and a beer on the side, after a while use the left overs for Maryland style crabcakes, with a beer on the side.

You can't beat it........make that a Gunthers beer on the side.

Carne Adovada is a favorite here in New Mexico! You can serve it up with your eggs and potatos in the morning, wrap it into a burritto for lunch, layer it in tacos for a quick snack or serve it over seasoned rice as the main meat course for dinner - don't forget the sopaipillas!!

OK, a South Texas Dovehunt on Saturday produces a limit. So....what do I do with the 15, I'm thinking....experiment time! So, 15 go into a brine. Dove, as you all are aware, are a lean, small bird, mostly a grain eater, but the breast can be ohhhhhh so good, as long as you make provisions not to dry it out while cooking, ie. the brine solution. Now...next day, I pull half, well OK 8 breasts out of the brine and go hunting for Jalapenos out in the garden, slicing the breast and incerting a wedge with a final wrap of bacon on the outside.......guarantee to prohibit dryness.

The pit is ready, and on the 8 go, mesquite bark to supplement the smoke supply and twenty minutes later after a ten minute multi basting with honey BarBQ sauce, its time to chow down. I get 6, the Mrs = 2.......You just don't want to know.

What to do.......the other 7. Bam! Buttermilk from the local HEB(grocery) and they go for a soaking, two days....was not the plan! But OK, heat the grease, a little over 350, powder those noses....err...I mean breasts with flower, pepper, salt mixture, and 5 minutes later, golden brown with a slight coating. The Mrs = 0, I got all seven, Yum...It's good to be a South Texican!
