MCJ (forever known to me as John). I have an explanation for my personal love affair with crock pots (also known as slow cookers)--Although I grew up in Seattle where all older apartments had gas stoves the fact is that all of the suburbs had only electricity and that was very much ditto for Sacramento and Los Angeles where I spent 30 years before I came back to the PNW--Portland seems to have gas in older neighborhoods and very new ones. So I've got an electric stove and electric stoves low temperature burners suck! AND even more important--I'm mostly not home and don't leave any kind of stove even an oven on if I'm not there. I can put together whatever I might be cooking in a crock pot and stick it out in the garage on cement--plug it in and feel reasonably confident that some sort of a gas line glitch of power surge isn't going to set the house on fire while I'm gone.

My father was born and raised in Brazil (Brasil to Portuguese speakers). I grew up on beans, Black beans, navy beans, red beans, cannellini beans. The list goes on ad infinitum....
LOL--I was pretty much raised as a latch-key kid by my mom who swore she'd never work for Boeing again (she worked as a turret lathe operator during WW2) so we ate lots of legumes (split pea soup, beans in chili, in soups, lentles etc) because they were cheap.

Quote:
My Jewish wife, never ate a bean in her life until she met me. Beans are a now a regular part of her diet.
Huh! That explains why my friend from an orthodox Jewish family (she wasn't but that's how she was raised) thought my chili was practically the best thing she'd ever eaten.

Quote:
I do own a "Crockpot". I use it for one thing only: Making Dijon mustard. (Don't everybody make their own mustard?)
Uh, remind me to tell you about my mustard experience--not only do I not make my own mustard (although my grandmother did) I don't eat mustard--I keep a jar of Dijon around for people I feed who do eat mustard. Took me close to twenty years to be able to put mustard on someone else's sandwich)

Quote:
So for all of you slow cookers and chili aficionados , I will come on later and disclose my recipe for feijoada completa. It is a slow cooked Brazilian black bean stew with fresh, smoked and cured meats. Kind of like a Portuguese cassoulet without the duck. I use chuck, ham hocks and a quality sausage , such as an andouille, a chorizo or a kielbasa.
Hmmm, the feijoada completa sounds quite a lot like a black bean stew (as opposed to chili) I make except that I don't use any smoked or cured meat--just chuck and any sort of pork--shoulder, loin--basically whatever is on sale, and occasionally throw in some hot Italian sausage--the base is similar to chili verde but has beans cooked into it...yum!

Sounds OK to me--dang! Now I'm going to have to go figure out something to put in the crock pot so I won't have to cook for a few days.

@ bug

I have a quart of split pea soup left over that I made a couple of days ago.

What makes it so good? Gartner's home smoked ham hocks! Make little ham hock stock, save the meat. Cook the split peas with the requisite vegetables and add the meat back in,

Me.... I always make croutons and liberally use reggiano parmesan cheese, as well as chopped parsley.

BTW. We were dirt poor when I was a young kid. I am guessing an average dinner cost about $1. My father was medical student, then an intern, then a resident, then partner in a practice that still thrives today. (He is 91). Rags to riches story. Of course, buy the time they got rich, I was leaving home for Oregon. Oh well...

Mmmmmmm--having dug around in the freezer and found a smoked ham hock (not Gartners but--it is a smoked ham hock) and looked in the tin where store beans and stuff and found a bag of split peas I have the beginnings of split pea soup--still chopping veggies to go in. I don't bother to make a broth out of the ham hock--I just put it in with the peas--and take it out near the end of the cooking time, pick the meat out, discard the skin and bone--chop the meat and return it to the pot.

Croutons--I never would have thought of them. My great grandmother was French--so my grandma and my mother always served toasted garlic bread with both split pea and lentil soup. Loaf of French bread--cut in slices, buttered and I cheat--I use garlic salt w/parsley (Lawry's) sprinkled on and yes, reggiano parmesan cheese sprinkled on and toasted under the broiler.

My mother would be horrified--she would have minced garlic and melted the butter and brushed that mixture on to the bread.

Gotta' go finish chopping up veggies--amazing how popular the stuff I was raised on because we too were dirt poor is regarded as "special" by my friends who ate rather differently when they were kids.

No fair Diane, you and everyone else in Florida is banned from posting temperatures until Portland, Oregon gets out of the basement.

I think the Thursday high was 46 and I know the low was 31 last night

So far the high today (Friday) has only reached 42

I don't care what the low is supposed to be--and the wind anywhere close to the Columbia River gulch has been 30 mph with gusts as high as 50-60--makes it feel a lot colder than it is.

I'm taking all the cats and going back to bed (the Toad got an extra dog bed starting last night)--I keep this house cold--but I think it's too cold for all of us today.

I'll get up when the split pea soup is done...

Aren't you supposed to have an emoji of a finger poking something here?

You can't make me feel bad--I'm happy with my split pea soup which is almost done.

But I'm a big fan of stroganoff too--it would figure--it's yet another of those farm recipe's--if you had a farm with a few dairy cows you'd have sour cream and you'd sell or fatten the bull calves so when you slaughtered the fattened calf--you;d pick through the meat and take some of the toughest stuff (which often is the most flavorful and slice it up a cook it slowly on the back of the wood stove with a bunch of onions and some garlic (and dig out the string of dried mushrooms and soak them to add at the end. Make some noodles (although I confess I like it on rice better than noodles) cook them and serve. More cheap food.

I have a stepbrother who is a chef (or he used to be) and went through school paying for it by being a butcher. He was telling a story one day and we all thought he was going to cry. He said he'd sold twenty pounds of prime filet mignon to a woman who asked if he would slice it into strips for her. He asked what she intended to do with it--she had her great aunt's recipe for stroganoff which was supposed to cook for many hours and she wanted to make it "special" so instead of buying the bottom round or chuck or whatever it was the great aunt made it with she intended to make it with the filet. He clearly could not believe anyone would so desecrate beef in such a fashion. His last comment on it was that it would taste like nothing and the meat would be mush.

Dang! Now I'm going to have to make a batch of stroganoff.

I have a good recipe for stroganoff. Just sayin’

But I don’t LIKE split pea soup. My mom cooked it very well, from all accounts, but yuck!

Ain’t nothing you can do to make it taste good.

Random cartoon for the day,
brought to you by XKCD:




Sure, taking a few seconds to be respectful toward someone
about something they care about doesn’t sound hard.
But if you talk to hundreds of people every day
and they all start expecting that same consideration,
it could potentially add up to MINUTES wasted. And for WHAT?

Man I hope we don't get a lot of snow this year. Woke up last winter to 18" over night snow fall. That's a drop in the bucket if you live in Buffalo, but in Portland, it paralyzes the city for weeks. I was on crutches (pre hip replacement) but still way more mobile than most. With my Jeep Rubicon set up like it is, I can go anywhere anytime. But, it still got old very quickly. Especially when my furnace went out at 6 am and I had too drive all the way across town to get the part to fix it. Good thing they were open! took me 2 hours to do a round trip that is normally 40 minutes. The good news was that it only took me 20 minutes get the furnace up and running.

So... I like snow as much as the next person. But I prefer that is stay on our 11,000' mountain that is only 50 miles away! LOL

STJ!

Oh,BTW. I was on Foxfire's Facebook page today and saw that they had recognized Toad (Bug's oldest) on his 12th birthday. Pretty cool

Nitey nite.....

Basement Gas Furnace
About 8 years ago, our 17 year old NG furnace went for a crapper...when we lived in city.
- sort of the life expectancy of the Keepwright brand, but it was 7:00 on a Friday night
- in the middle of January, and we just got a cold spell of freezing temperatures & wind factor
- and I knew the local Furnace wholesalers, where closed on Saturday / so a weekend without heat...
- my furnace guy was scheduled for a new RUUD install, at 8:00 Monday morning

I had a 5,000 watt/240volt electric heater to supply the whole house and a 110v.
- plugged the construction heater into the 30amp Dryer receptacle, in the laundry room
- and using physics, heat rises...but man-o-man the 2nd floor bedroom was cold
- at night the master bed, got extra blankets
- and Amy the family Doberman slept under the blankets tightly between mom & dad, trying to keep everyone half warm
- our bedroom was about 15^F colder than normal, but we braved through the cold...all weekend
^^ Come Monday morning, I was glad to see a nice DC direct drive furnace going in.

4x4 - you did well, getting your furnace up & running with a new part...in a few hours time.
- our old Keepwright always had the gas igniter fail, about every 4-5 years
- our new RUUD worked wiithout problems
- we put in the same furnace brand RUUD, in our rural house we are living in now

When we rewired our reno house 5 years ago / the 5,000W heater was put on its on 220v breaker, in furnace room.
- just for heat backup, and will keep water pipes from freezing
- its set to come on automatically, if there is a big drop in basement temperature...go insurance
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Speed Queen
Our sons old Kenmore washer and dryer, humping along (on last legs).
- dryer has a belt noise / washer "on switch" starting to act up
- dryer was taking 3 cycles, to get closes dry ... sometimes a few hours to do a load, instead of under 1/2 hour
- so Dad sourced him new laundry units / Speed Queen commercial washer & dryer...installed yesterday
- they only have mechanical switches and no computer boards
- I saved him $1,300 on the pair, finding a Toronto wholesaler that sells to consumers without extra markup
- Speed Queen is designed for 25 years & easy to fix / much like the old Maytag quality, decades ago

We didn't junk the old Kenmore's - just moved off to side in basement.
- if he ever moves, the Cadillac of laundry equipment will move with him...the old one can stay, with condo

A good wife, a good horse, a good
dog. That's all a man needs and I'm thankful to have all three.

I was on crutches (pre hip replacement) but still way more mobile than most. With my Jeep Rubicon set up like it is, I can go anywhere anytime. But, it still got old very quickly. Especially when my furnace went out at 6 am and I had too drive all the way across town to get the part to fix it. Good thing they were open! took me 2 hours to do a round trip that is normally 40 minutes. The good news was that it only took me 20 minutes get the furnace up and running.

So... I like snow as much as the next person. But I prefer that is stay on our 11,000' mountain that is only 50 miles away! LOL

STJ!
STJ (definitely STJ this morning even though I generally know him as John) Please, PLEASE don't let's even think about 18" (or even 4") of snow on the left hand Portland--even though I can drive in snow (and put on and take off chains--all by myself) most of the Portland proceed to "keep Portland weird" by proving that they have no idea how to drive in snow. (Shades of when I lived in Los Angeles and re-discovered every winter that SoCal drivers had no idea how to drive in rain).

We are scheduled to have at least another week of clear, dry and windy weather here...

Oh,BTW. I was on Foxfire's Facebook page today and saw that they had recognized Toad (Bug's oldest) on his 12th birthday. Pretty cool

Nitey nite.....
A friend of Toad's (and mine) just sent me a package of all of the responses to Michelle's Happy Birthday Toad--it got well over 400 replies--I've said for years that dog knows more people than I do. I still get e-mails from total strangers who saw Toad at a show or trial somewhere and wondered how he was.

Thanks John--it's a good thing that people who know me (even if it's just from the internet) keep me up on things like the Toad's Facebook presence. Yeah, I just plain don't "do" social media (well, except for DT--but that's because of the chickens).

I'm shortly off to a dog show--and Christmas shopping for the dogs today.
