Right now we are trying to be on a low fat diet, but the temptations!

Jessaka, I only had 1 pound of ground beef and didn't feel like going to the store so I made half the recipe for the meatloaf. I think there was enough left over for one sandwich, and he ate that. The meat I used was longhorn, which is very lean. I will have to find another way to get longhorn meat. That was my last package.

I did get the pan, but I have not used it yet. After we have eaten healthy a few days, I think I will cook some rib-eyes. Your second recipe for green tomatoes with the cottage cheese looks really good. I will have to try that.

mkfarnam, here is how I cook corn beef hash from a can. I heard about this on the Waltons.

Eggs on Hash

Grease well a cast iron frying pan. Spread the corn beef hash on the pan. Season with salt, pepper, maybe some hot sauce. Then with a big spoon press little bowls in the hash for the eggs. Crack the eggs into the little bowls. Cook on medium high heat until the hash is getting a little brown on the edges. Cover the pan to get the eggs done the way you want them.
I'll have to use that cornbeef hash recipe peggy. It sounds really good. I love eggs. BTW, have eggs gotten as expensive up in Ok as they are here in Texas? $2 for a dozen eggs seems higher than it used to be.

Check some of the local butchers/packing houses. They know who is producing what in their neighborhood. In addition to longhorn, look for a Dexter producer. I found Dexter to be a great flavored beef, but we raise them on grass only, no general medication or steroids etc, same with our hogs and chickens. And the grass finish is part of what gives it that stronger flavor. Grain (corn) finish adds a lot of fat and marbling and tends to make for a more tender cut, but I still prefer using a lot less corn and more varietal grasses. I would offer you some Dexter, but the only ones we had that were butcher age are gone, and we only have calves and heifers now, and our bull, of course. We do have some hogs we need to sell, though.

Jessaka, yes I seasoned all of my frying pans the other day. It was a little smokey but they look better. Today I am fixing pork chops in my new grill pan.

Goodpasture, that sounds so interesting to be raising Dexter cattle. How many cows do you have? I read about them and they sound good. We used to have cattle, but selling the calves bothers me so I wouldn't want to get back into it. Not to mention all the work. Sounds like you enjoy it though. Once I bought part of a grass fed cow, and that was some good hamburger. I think people don't realize how much better meat used to taste.

We bought a FFA hog from some kids we know, and it is good. A better flavor and texture than store pork. Not as much fat, those pigs get a lot of exercise.

Mkfarnam, very funny.

Pears are ripe now. I fixed some baked pears the other day. I had a bottle of wine I bought at Sorghum Days a couple of years ago and decided to use it up since I was never going to drink it.

2 cups wine, or apple juice
1 cup sugar
5 or six pears, the firm kind

Cut blossom end of pears so pears will stand up. Put the pears whole in a baking dish with blossom ends down. Combine the wine and sugar and pour over pears. Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours, basting several times. Let cool and serve with the wine/sugar syrup.
