Re: Them stoles beef from stew!

Sadie Killmouski, believe me or not, I was not raised to be a forgiving soul. It took me decades to understand that rage is not worth it. I regret writing so much about it, but I thought it would be an tangential anecdote of my foibles and trying to [more]

Re: Them stoles beef from stew!

I can only say wow, that is some nerve for a so called friend to do. I certainly wouldn’t think it was hilarious, as a matter of fact I would still be mad and would definitely call that “friend” and present him with a bill for the meat and time I [more]

Unfortunately, someone I am still rather ticked off at for now, who used to be a casual acquaintance/friend, henceforth referred to as the "Beef Thief," or one of many names for meat stealers.

Them stoles beef from stew!

The morning after, my dilemma now strikes me as more funny than infuriating as my slow-simmering anger and disappointment of last night.

Re: XP: cornish hens (slow cooker/stove)

Hello Bob, belated thank you for your notes and tips. Eventually I used a slow cooker recipe posted on that other board and it worked out decently enough.

Re: Defrosting two cornish hens: now what?

Late update, but the slow cooker Cornish hens turned out really yummy.

Re: Defrosting two cornish hens: now what?

This one has potatotes, carrots, parsnips and mushrooms. I bet it would also be good with carrots, celery, and potatoes. And onions. I'd try this one. (I also sometimes put cabbage in with my chicken, that's always good).

Okay I was sick and tired of two frozen Cornish hens (thanks to a friend who was emptying out her freezer *last* year) falling down and hitting my toes when I shift things in the freezer so as of 12:10 PM (several minutes ago) now they are defrosting [more]
