  • September 17th Dinner Post

    Good Morning!

    It is sunny with the high of 84 and the low of 65 along with the humidity rising somewhat.

    Fried cabbage with smoked sausage, last of the green beans from the garden, sliced tomatoes and plums are on the menu.

    What will be your dinner?

    Sunny. "They" say high 85 not sure I believe it. We haven't hit as high as they say in last 3 or 4 days. Humidity is up tho.
    Got chicken out couple days ago & things kept happening so didn't get to cook it. I will fry it today with mashed potatos/gravy and fresh corn. Think I'll make an eclair dessert/cake.

      g'day, rosie... you had me at "eclair dessert". There are not many people who can make a great eclair. I bought some in Canberra on our recent trip and although they were the most expensive eclairs I'd ever bought, they were also the most tasteless, bland eclairs.

      It was teaming raining again today... crazy weather. John and I watched the football and our team (Sydney Swans) are now in the Grand Final next Saturday. I so hope they will win. John was screaming at the TV so much during the game that he lost his voice... *LOL* It was a very close game... Swans won by one point.

      I spent some time untangling another Cabbage Patch girl... so tempting to take to it with a pair of scissors but I won't. It might take a few days. Also during the day I reorganised my pantry ready for my groceries arriving tomorrow.

      Dinner tonight was BBQ chicken, mashed sweet potato, peas and gravy.

        rosie,

        Just wondering if you are going cheesecake this time? DGS and I did, and it was so dang good. We decided that will be a favorite at the top of the list. Whatever flavor you make I know it will be delicious.

        Have a great day!

          Congrats on your team getting to the finals. tell John to be careful!!! LOL you have WAY more patients than I do with the hair. I am not making "eclairs" like I said not so much patients. It's just layered in a 9x13 pan. Graham crackers, pudding mixed with cool whip. 2 layers crackers and pudding. Crackers on top and chocolate icing on top. Quick easy mindless.



          LTB I have not been able to find cheesecake pudding. If I ever do it's goin happen

            If I still have cabbage in my fridge I may fry some with some bacon and shallot. If not I have Mac and cheese and salad ingredients.

              I made a really tasty soup yesterday for the first time from the Publix website called Nacho Potato Chowder w/smoked sausage. It called for smoked sausage, and I had the perfect sausage in my freezer, so I took it out to thaw. I put it on my outside grill and charred it nice and brown. Made the soup and it was delicious. The sausage I use comes from Alabama to Virginia. Publix is the only grocery store that I know carries it in my area. The brand is Conecuh. I had read about it a couple of years ago when the first Publix store opened in our area (we now have two). The newspaper did an article on the store opening and one lady they interviewed said how happy she was for the store to open locally because she loves Conecuh sausage and had to wait for her family to travel to North Carolina to get it. She said she would bring back around 15 pounds and freeze it. That piqued my interest and I found it. Well, I have to say it is one of the tastiest sausages I have ever had. I almost gag on ring bologna or kielbasa - no way I would eat that. I didn't put all the sausage in the soup but saved two pieces so we will have mashed potatoes and corn to finish it off.

                It’s really pretty nice today, still mid 60’s and mostly clear. I got my dead TV loaded up and took it to the electronic recycling place in town, just made a bit more room in the garage. My garage feels pretty empty now, only one car in 3 parking spots. My oldest son will be coming up in a month or so and he’s going to take the Quick Jack (push button power hoist that lifts up to 5k pounds) and a bunch of tools. I basically need one small toolbox with basic tools like hammers, pipe wrench, pliers and screwdrivers and there are 2 full rollaways out there. I think I’m going to kick back and watch the last 2 episodes of The White Lotus. I’d never heard of it until the Emmy Awards and it’s really quite good.

                I’m going to heat up a breast quarter of the chicken I cooked in my air fryer/rotisserie and I’m going to put Alabama white BBQ sauce on it, a baked potato half and some collard greens and that will be dinner.​

                  g'day, Vera... I've never had a soup that had sliced sausage as one of the ingredients. I probably wouldn't be a fan because I don't like garlic and most of those smoked sausage products have a lot of garlic in them. You have me thinking about a day trip to a town not far from here. This area was originally settled by German immigrants in the 1800's and named the town Hahndorf and built a German town right here in South Australia. It's now a tourist attraction with hotels, delis and it goes crazy during Beerfest! Within the area is the best jam and pickles factory that grows it's own fruits and vegetables and a shop to sell their wares. It's called Beerenberg Farm and is a family owned and run business. They have a huge strawberry patch and welcome people to go and pick their own strawberries. Back when Immy was younger, Tiff and Julia took Andrew and Immy to pick strawberries there. Andrew hated them and Immy ate her own weight in freshly picked strawberries... *LOL* Beerenberg charge a small amount of money to go in... children can eat whatever they want... adults pick what they want and they pay for them per kilo. It gets very busy around Christmas but I'll make plans to go there around February/March.

                  I started telling you all this because there is also a smallgoods factory that produces sausages like what you are talking about. Before COVID people could visit the factory and receive a tasting plate to sample what they make. I don't think they've started tours yet because COVID cases are on the rise in South Australia...

                    g'day, Chayote - I am not a fan of a lot of garlic. I like garlic bread and Italian food with garlic but don't like it overdone in other foods. This sausage has a smoke taste and I do not taste garlic at all. There might be some in there, but I don't taste it. Andrew doesn't like strawberries??? I have a good friend who won't eat peaches!! To me, those are universal foods everyone should love - I do.

                    Beerenbberg Farm sounds like a place I would love.

                      Andrew is a fussy eater... He has little quirks about his food whereas Hannah will eat just about anything anything. Immy loves fruit and also has a go at anything given to her to eat and then it's hit or miss. At least she tries everything.
