Seriously, this one is kind of rough. I'm home from work, it's been more than 24 hours, no sign of letting up. Yuck.

LadyDi Funny...I was just thinking about the "AJ Special" ...just yesterday............

Scott forbids me to make anything spicey or that includes Taco seasonings.............back during the early years of our marital bliss...........

I used some taco seasoning to make some dish......Scott was in a fetal position for 3 full days.

Scott is no longer a team player.........he will no longer eat spicy foods.........at all......

Lannie what cha got ?

Where is are Lannie??????? Come back to yeeee flock............
Oh yeah, I love biscuits and almost anything--butter and jam dripping off all sides.

And Kenny--I used t love biscuits with gravy and sausage until I ate some that was being served with the free breakfasts at some motel at a dog show--they were advertising biscuits and gravy with sausage. Oh boy--my friend looked at it and said it looked like it had been sitting there for awhile and passed on it. I should have. For the next 24 hours I had the next best thing to whatever it is you get for things like potato salad that's been sitting out on the picnic table in 90 degree weather for several hours.

Kind of put me off biscuit with gravy and sausage.

I missed a whole page somehow--had to go back and find it and all the stuff about biscuits, chili etc.

And here's a recipe for a quick and dirty dish that my Mexican friends call Mexican bean soup. This is just to prove I'm not a purist when it comes to canned beans.

One pound (more or less) of hamburger browned, drain fat
One can each of three kinds of beans. One has to be kidney beans the other two can be anything--I usually make sure one is chili beans and the other is either black beans or pinto beans.
One can of corn
One onion chopped
Two cans of diced tomatoes with chili's (Mexican style)
One package of medium or hot taco seasoning
One package of ranch dressing mix
If I have some around I also throw in some sweet peppers--green, red or yellow.

When you get to the package of taco seasoning follow the package directions--heat to a boil reduce heat to a simmer for awhile.

The original recipe I got was for a vat of this stuff--calls for multiplying everything by 2. I divided that recipe by 2 to get it more reasonable for me--and I generally freeze a couple of containers of this--it freezes well.

It takes more time to open the cans of beans, corn and tomatoes than anything else. But it's fast and easy for the unexpected van load of people who were at the dog show with you and came home for a visit and we all ended up starving but didn't want to go out.

ABTLH

Oh yeah, the weather forecast--dull and cloudy had rain overnight and more predicted for today and tomorrow (but it's supposed to reach 60 degrees--in the meantime it's cold in here--I'm taking the cats and the dogs and going back to bed--I've got a good Nancy Kress novel (scifi) to entertain me.

Guilty as charged, Kenny. I hurt my lower back in the gym when I was about 22 or 23...My friend and I were doing heavy squats and instead of us going all the way down which is bad for your knees, we put a bench behind us and we would slowly go down till we barely felt our butt touch the bench which meant our upper legs were parallel to the floor, then go back up. Well you-know-who was feeling his oats that day and I put on another 50 pounds. I went down and ended up going too low and sitting on the bench which transferred all the weight from my legs onto my back and that's all she wrote. The next day I had my then-wife take me to the ER because I couldn't even walk by myself but the military doc, bless his heart, did absolutely nothing except touch the bottom of my feet and ask me if I could feel that and then he gave me the magic pills, 800mg of motrin. No X-rays, nothing. Since that day, I can't lay or sleep on my stomach, and the littlest thing can cause my back to go out on me and go into spasms for days. Every now and then the sciatica joins in on the fun. Good times LOL. It is one of the reasons I go on as many hikes with Mocha as possible - I *think* walking helps build my posture and helps with my lower back. Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it

dobebug Denny,

I feel your pain--it's so hard even when you know it's the right thing to do.

I got cured the hard way by the stray that came to apply for a live in position at the house we swore had a sign out front for indigent kitties. I kept her--I had her for 8 years--she was the odd eyed white cat I've talked about here--California isn't the ideal place for white kitties who like to hang out and sleep in the sun. She lost both ear tips to cancer--my vet cropped her and she ended up with ears that looked like little bear ears. And she didn't get to be an outside kitty anymore--no more lounging in the sun.
And she developed IBD later in her life--she lost a lot of weight (a small cat anyway she was 3 pounds when I bit the bullet and took her in for her last trip to the vet.

I really, really didn't want to let her go--and swore I'd never ever keep any one of my pets beyond their time. So I really do know how you feel...

There's never ever anything easy about losing one of the pets you've had for most of their life (or in the case of one of my cats who lived to 21--had lived with me through a lot of good and bad times and 30% of my life was with that cat).

I'll think good thoughts for you--I'm sorry it's come to this for Striker....

TN,

You need to have the magic back brace that the surgeon who gave me the bad news about the fact that my sciatic (and the cause of it aren't going to be fixed via surgery) Ordered me up a cast iron back brace--which I wear if I'm doing a lot of active stuff. Mowing lawns, working in the clinic, going for long walks (my dog doesn't even want to go for long walks any more--he's almost 14--older in people years than I am in dog years), pulling weeds, raking leaves, dragging stuff around I shouldn't be moving by myself etc.

Turns out it really makes a difference--it isn't so much my back but my sciatic nerve starts screaming about how it's being treated if I don't remember to use the brace.

2. I love black beans, and would much rather have good homemade borracho beans than those nasty refried things.
You'd love the Oaxacan Baked Black Beans I make--another one I make n a crock pot since they are supposed to cook for 10 hours. Really a simple recipe but I've taken pots of it to get-togethers and gotten rave reviews.

3. I dot chili around on corn chips, lots and lots of very sharp cheese (detect a pattern here?), a few fresh sliced jalapenos, and microwave to make a version of nachos. Served with sour cream of course. I suppose some people would include some fresh salsa heaped on top after the microwaving, but why try to make the meal healthier?
I slather a spoonful of black bean chili on a warmed corn tortilla--put some extra raw onions and some really sharp cheddar on it and fold it up and eat it leaning over the sink. Oh yeah--and sour cream (I almost forgot)

4. Apple jelly and peanut butter make a good sandwich; apple butter is good with peanut butter too. If you're really feeling decadent (and if I eat peanut butter, I'm usually feeling decadent), add butter to your sandwich...it cuts the stickiness and complements the flavor. IMO
I'm addicted to sourdough bread so I like peanut butter but prefer marionberry jam to apple jelly--now you know why Toad's favorite treat is sourdough bread dripping with butter and marionberry jam). I like apple butter better than apple jelly. And I have a friend who taught me to make butter, peanut butter, mayonnaise and lettuce sandwiches--taste a lot better than they sound.

Quote:
5. We use tabasco, but generally prefer a hot sauce with a little less vinegaryness (that's a word--right?). We also have a jar of ghost pepper sauce which sneaks up on you and then there's nothing you can do but live with the burn for a half hour or so. Too hot for me, and even a bit much for my son I think (though he would never admit it.)
Actually I don't really use tabasco--I may call it that but it's a hot sauce labeled in the store "Louisiana Hot Sauce" or if I'm in the store that doesn't stock than one there is another one that is almost identical (I recognize it on the shelf but of course I can't remember the name) But it isn't as vinegary as real tobacco--and I'm sure vinegaryness is a perfectly good word.

Quote:
6. I'm taking a new medicine which requires that you take it on an empty stomach about an hour before you eat (or a couple of hours after your meal) So I get up and take it right away and then wait for breakfast. I never was that much of a breakfast fan and was never particularly hungry in the morning (no comments from you guys about my sleeping through breakfast, please ), but now that I have to wait, I get up ravenous.
I'm one of those freaks who wakes up starving and a couple of guys who knew this about me (and who knew that I'm a diehard lark and am awake very early would call me (sometimes because they hadn't been to bed yet) at really early hours and ask me if I wanted to go have breakfast (my answer was always "Yeah, sure--let me just put some clothes on--am I picking you up or are you picking me up?")

Fortunately the meds I'm taking now all require that I have food before, during or immediately after I takem them.

Geeze Mel, I just got my geriatric girl delivered for this week and along with her normal pills and food I got a carton of eggs (I guess someone told Ken that I always give my dogs an egg for dinner along with their kibble and pills) and some chocolate chip cookies made without wheat flour (because the other half of the batch was going to our friend Nancy who is a full blown celiac (and that's why I know how to make two kinds of pie crusts using no wheat flour)--so instead of the normal wheat flour these were made with almond and some other kind of nut flour--YUM! Really good cookies.

I think we're going to keep the table but the chairs definitely have to go. The material started rotting from being outdoors all this time so 2 of the chairs have big rips in them. You would think that OUTDOOR furniture would be built to take abuse like sunlight and rain, wouldn't you?

Kenny just thinks he can't quit laughing--I bet I outlaughed him. I used to like stuff a lot hotter than I do now--I still like it really spicey with a fair amount of heat but not fire alarm hot. A long ago SO who not only loved my chili he loved it even hotter than I did. But it didn't love him so much--and I got the brunt of it in the bedroom--I'd wake up in the middle of the night because Bruce was tossing and turning and yanking all the covers off of me and then slinging them back over me.

And my eyes would be burning and I'd be gasping for air. Eventually I'd wake up enough to open all the windows and the slider to the patio and escape out to sleep on the couch in the back room where the television lived (so that it was close to the kitchen).

Putting the hot sauce on the table and the ground up red peppers didn't fix the problem for him--he'd be ladeling hot sauce (and it wasn't actually tabasco but a hot 'Lousiana' sauce) and spoonsfuls of red pepper--I'd be saying Bruce--"you're going to regret that"--everyone else at the table would laugh and someone was sure to say "Not at much as you'll regret it..."

Edit: hmmm now I'm wondering if that suggestion came from the FB group...oh well, doesn't matter
