  1. We pulled out a jar of beef this weekend and this is what I did with it. All the kids LOVED it I took one qt jar of beef cubes and drained the broth into a sauce pan. Heated it up with some dehydrated onions and some garlic powder. When it was almost boiling I added a bit of flour to thicken. Then I added a can of cream of mushroom soup. After mixing the soup in well, I added in the meat, let it come to a light boil, then turned it down to simmer. Served over egg noodles and everyone ate it till it was gone. I've been experimenting with cooking noodles right in the sauce lately to save on water. You might could cook the pasta in the broth will a little extra water and not need to add the flour. That would save an extra pan to wash and the water to boil the pasta in. I might try that next time.
  2. I would like to, ever so politely, BEG for a pretty sig! Please please please? I not picky, I homeschool (I know "duh") we can, and I like to crochet. I'm not into pastel colors though. Thats all I can think of.
  3. Quote: I make macaroni and cheese, then add a can of tuna, a can of cream of chicken soup (or mushroom) and a can of peas! I'm coming to your house for dinner! YUMM
  4. I save mine for storing pasta. Though they make really nice sun tea! Yummy
  5. I tried it ONCE and the smell alone was enough to knock you down. BLECH! I would suggest frying it normally, then crumbling and running it through a dehydrator. I was gonna do this, but figured that buying the big bag of this from Sam's was cheaper in the long run. But since you already have the bacon, you don't have to worry about that.
  6. This recipe come out of my old betty crocker cookbook. We use this ALOT with leftover mashed potatoes, but I've also been known to mix up some lukewarm instant potatoes and use those. I use it for cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls, bread sticks, and we sometimes wrap it around hotdogs and cheese. It lasts about 4 days in the fridge, though I've used it alittle old for rolls, and they were kinda sourdough-y. Refrigerator roll dough 1 package active dry yeast (or 1 and 1/2 t bulk yeast) 1 1/2 c warm water 1 c unseasoned lukewarm mashed potatos 2/3 c sugar 2/3 c shortening 2 eggs 1 1/2 t salt 6 - 7 c all purpose flour Dissolve yeast in warm water in large bowl. Stire in potatoes, sugar, shortening, eggs, salt and 3 cups of the flour. Beat until smooth. Mix in enough remaiing flour to make dough easy to handle. Turn doug onto lightly floured surface: knead untill smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl: turn greased side up. Cover bowl tightly: refrigerate at least 3 hours but no longer than 5 days. Punch down dough: and use as normal.
  7. I saw this a while back, but didn't like the fact that you have to put a hole in the lid. I just bought the jar sealers from foodsaver. They aren't too expensive. I think I bought mine from ebay for less than $10 a peice. You can also vacuum seal alot of stuff just by placing the filled cans in a warm oven just long enough to warm, then putting the lid and ring on and letting it cool on the counter.
  8. Has anyone ever canned mushrooms and onions? I was thinking of just dropping some whole button mushrooms and sliced onions covering with boilling water. Has anyone ever tried that? I wonder how the texure would be.
  9. Out here in my neck of the woods, if it were a dog, it would have been put down. I'm not sure keeping it indoors is such a bad thing really.
  10. Went to Sams this weekend and got 10 lbs of egg noodles 5 more big boxes of dry milk (thats all the extra I'm buying, now I just have to buy as many as we use and rotate! YEAH) 3 big boxes of instant potatoes 5lbs mozzarella cheese (vacuum sealed and frozen) 5lbs shredded chedder (bagged and frozen) still can't beleive that this is cheaper shredded than in a block) 4lbs butter (again vacuum packed and frozen) 5lbs honey big container of italian seasoning 1 pint of vanilla 40 rolls of TP big container of cocoa I bought some frozen broccoli, I'm gonna try and dry it. We shall see how well it works LOL I was hopeing to find a good deal on fresh corn, but the stores still want $1 for 4 ears, I'm not paying that much Dollar General 24 cans of corn 24 cans of grean beans 3 jellies 12 cans tomato sauce 12 cans spaggetto's I also reorganized my prep storage (2 big closets in the guest room) I found that I had alot more of the big tube shaped pasta (cant remember the name) and not nearly enough macaroni noodles. (good thing I checked) I also need a bit more white and brown sugar (plenty of powered) sugar. Everything else is looking GOOD!! I've about run out of containers for pasta and rice. I've been using any big container I can get my hands on. I started emptying rice into 2liter bottles so I can have the containers it was in for pasta that won't fit in the bottles. I'd hate to break down and BUY containers!! LOL
  11. I cut off the excess stalk and put it right into a ziplock bag, husk and all. We like to take it out, soak it in cool water till thawed then grill it! yummm
  12. And the ring could hold water in it, and rust the lid.
  13. So today before the dreaded dentist appointment I was reading this thread, and turn to DH and said "how would you like to have a goat?" He looked at me like I had 3 heads and said "what for?" So I went on to say that first it would be less yard for you to mow. Then I said if we had a few goats we could have fresh milk, and even meat. He, not changing that "you have 3 heads" look, cocks his head to the right and says "are you nuts?" Then he went on to say that the only place we would have room for them isn't set up for live stock, going on and on about theres no fences, no shelter, no water, ext ext ext blah blah blah!!! LOL So no goats for me LOL
  14. Just got home from the dentist, lets just say it was horrible,
