Do you make your own sweet & sour pork?? If so, would you mind sharing this recipe? I've always wanted to make it but the recipes always seem so darned involved.....

Good Sunday morning all my foodie friends.

MWBW, looks like you have yet another faithful follower! Your writing seems to memorize us all! It takes us away from our everyday everything and let's us enjoy a little time in your world! Thanks!

Nomad, happy to hear you were able to find something that filled and pleased you both for dinner!

For everyone else--I never would think of so many of these dinner ideas without you all planting the seed--Thanks! Keep 'em coming!

Dinner tonight will be chicken that has been marinated in soy sauce and then baked. I'll make good old mashed potatoes and some corn on the side with our usual sliced tomatoes and water melon.
Have a great Sunday!

This all needs to be minced finely, Dad used a big wooden bowl that had been his mother's to chop it up with a round blade chopping knife with a wooden handle...the bowl had the stains of the years . Sometimes Mom would put it all thru the old crank style meat grinder....if she was making it .... instead of chopping.

Then a black cast iron fry pan.... was heated up and some salt pork rendered for some grease....and the chopped hash is put in the pan....and flattened out to cover the bottom of the pan.....as it heats it will bubble a bit and need some tending to keep it from scorching on the bottom....Dad would then use a spatula to turn it the best he could....it doesnt flip like a pancake by anymeans.....and then put the pan in a hot oven to bake and heat through.....

In our house it was often served for a Sunday night supper ..... with fried eggs and bread and butter and chow chow relish and yes Nomad....ketchup.

This isnt a real recipe it is more a memory.....altho I do my own version from time to time.

here's a link to a real recipe for hash.....New England, Yankee, Red Flannel Hash Recipe
Oh, Elston, you take me back. We also had one of those crank grinders for hash. I had it for years, but don't know what happened to it. The only reason we never eat hash is that there are never any corned beef leftovers around here.
I think I'll make it a point to cook double corned beef next time.

G'morning, all.

WEll, it's Sunday, so hubby's off to B&N. Don't know whether he'll be home for dinner or what we'll have whether he's here or not. Guess it'll just be a catch as catch can day.

Lots of little things to do today, so I guess I should go do them so I can justify my trip to the pool!

Enjoy, all.

Well, the wedding went pretty well! No serious drama at all... just under the breath and under the table.... LOL.... it was actually quite nice. We had a good time and I have ton of pics... Hope you all had a great Saturday!

In terms of food for the wedding.... well... it was a buffet... and it was alright. I really could have just taken my plate to the salad bowl and loaded THATup and it would have made me the happiest.... HAHAH but I think you all pretty much knowTHAT by now. They had Italian Sausage and I risked a headache and ate that--- after munching on pepperoni (oops) and sharp chedder cheese.... and drinking two glasses of wine.... AAHHH it was a wedding and I could be bad!!!! and yes I did head home with a bit of a headache but it was worth the fun. Sometimes ya just have to ignore the rules and eat what ya want....

Have another Family get together today but it is for MY side of the family !!!! I am very excited to see everyone. I missed the family reunion yesterday. I was bummed out. So today is another big day and we are going out to celebrate. ALL the relatives.... I think there will be about 50 or 60+ of us.... I will report back on the food later... have a wonderful Sunday! Hope it is cheerful....

Oooo...'sketti sounds good, bella and joco. I've been craving it, but it'll have to wait 'till the kitchen's done. Bummer.

Glad you had fun, skbs.

Morning everyone!

Say, wanted to share a marinade that I think is one, if not the best, for barbequed chicken.

Very simple:
Soy sauce and hoisin sauce for 1/2 hour before grilling. It's very good! Equal parts or maybe a little more soy sauce - doesn't really matter. Have a great Sunday!

Coincidentally, I am meeting a group at an East Indian restaurant. Two days in a row and probably not again for at least six months.
