If you have any questions, just shoot me an email. Thanks.
As with so many of the old fashioned recipes, the ingredients are few and easily what you have on hand.
My Mom requested these during her visit. I know they are easy and anyone could figure out how to make them, but just in case, here you go!
Have a Merry Christmas!!!!
Beef & Barley stew...

With as crazy as everything is right now, I figured I better get it up there early or I'll miss the deadline all together! ;-)
A holiday drink
Out of sheer boredom around the house this morning, I came up with a tasty beverage:
Mountain Dew and Cranberry Juice.

Carnival Entry From Laughing Wolf
Thank you for hosting this week! My entry can be found at http://laughingwolf.net/archives/001755.html and is below as well. Take care, and Merry Christmas!
Carnival Of The Recipes: Oatmeal
Most Americans have never had real oatmeal. If all you have ever had were the instant or five-minute kind, then you have never had real oatmeal (same holds true for grits).
The real stuff is flavorful, has some texture, and is very good for you. It is also easy to fix, and can even cook as you sleep.
First off, find some good non-instant oatmeal. My personal preference is for Scott Porridge Oats or Mornflake, which can be found in shops around the country. Second,sit back and relax. Cooking good oatmeal is like penetrating enemy airspace: take it low and slow.
I follow the directions on the package in terms of quantities, but cook it as low and as long as circumstances allow. Alton Brown of Good Eats suggests using a
crockpot and doing it overnight, which if you are cooking for more than one is not a bad idea. The longer it cooks, the better it will taste and the more of the fiber gets into play – or so they say. I can and will vouch for the former part.
My other suggestions are: 1. Don’t add salt until almost ready to serve; 2. For
richness, put in a small amount of real butter; 3. For really rich taste, use milk as part of the liquid; 4. For really true richness, put cream on top as you serve; and, 5. Add some good cinnamon to it right before serving.
To be honest, I usually just eat it out of the pan with cinnamon and a small pinch of kosher salt. It is quite tasty, hot, and filling. Not a bad way to start a cold winter’s day.
My submission to Carnival of the Recipes is
"Recipes past, present, and to come"
I've included Mrs. Beeton's Christmas Pudding recipe, a Christmas Eve tradition of our own, and a link with some notions of what the future has to hold.
Please do not have a Merry Christmas. The original meaning of "merry" is active. Instead have a restful, blessed Christmas.
To you and yours.
The Glittering Eye
Here is my recipe for the week - Grandmother's Rock Cookies
My recipe for this week (Armenian Bulgur Pilaf) can be found at:
If you are looking for a quick last minute dish to serve with those
gingerbread pancakes on Christmas Day here is an easy one.
Or maybe Picama Jickles
... and that's it! I'll submit my modernized plum pudding recipe next week after we've tried it out, if it's as good as we hope!
Have a Happy HoHo!!!
