    Crock Pot Chili

    2 lbs lean ground beef (I'm using some venison next time)

    1 can black beans

    1 can pinto beans

    1 can diced tomatoes

    1 packet chili seasoning

    Throw it all in (if the meat is pretty lean you don't have to brow and drain first) and cook on low at least 10 hours (or remember that 1 hour on high = two hours on low)

    I serve it topped with a bit of cheddar cheese and make the Marie Calendar cornbread mix to go with it.

    Bacon Potato Corn Chowder (you can adapt this for the crock pot, just throw it all in and cook for 10 hours on low)

    8 pieces of thick sliced bacon, cut into 1/2" pieces

    16 oz package frozen corn

    1 cup sour cream

    1 1/4 cups milk

    1 can cream of chicken soup

    About 6 red potatoes, diced

    Small can of green chilies (optional)

    Cook bacon until crisp, and potatoes and cook until fork tender. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for about an hour.

    I usually do the crock pot version since I am short on time, and sometimes don't even cook the bacon first.

    Could I substitute the 'dillo I hit the other night. Dumb animals. He went between my tires I thought he would be OK, then I here him hit near the back. Must have jumped into my spare tire or something. DUMB ANIMALS!!!

  5. Just saw a great recipe on the Food Network. Twinkie Tiramisu!

    I'll report back when I've tried it....tomorow perhaps. I think it fate cause just yesterday I saw the Twinkies were on sale and I bought a box for the boys lunches.

    Hmmmmm, I guess I could have served up some pounded deer cutlets from my little fiasco of yesterday, but, I was never really that fond of road kill.

    Speaking of twinkies, I was at a craft show once where they were doing the deep fried twinkies. I guess they freeze the twinkie, dip it in some sort of batter then deep fry it. I was out of dough so I didn't try it, but I have heard they were outstanding. The also deep fry snickers bars too.
  10. And Oreos, and cheesecake, at our state fair. The fried cheesecake is awesome fried!!! Oh, and I had fried Ice Cream once, and It was pretty good, too.


    :reindeer: :50cal:
  11. Oh heck yeah. It was great. I posted about it in the FOOD forum. Here's a link to the recipe... http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,1977,FOOD_9936_33273,00.html
    The only tweeks to the recipe I'd suggest would be to cut back on the espresso quantity a little....if you use the suggested ammount they twinkies will be soaked and will totally disinegrate...it would be nice if they maintained a little more of their original consistency. You want to get them mostly colored without drenching them. Also, make sure you dont whip the cream too stiff or it will tend to tear up the twinkines while you try to spread it since, of course, the twinkies are pretty friggin sopping with espresso.

    So I saw this on the Food network the other day and I had tivo save the episode..... the next day I made it up in the afternoon.....than night my wife is watching tv and started the episode I had saved. So its desert time, I've got this resting in the fridge, she's watching they guy make this, she says "wow, that sounds great", I'm IM'ing Sharon and I say "she just said "wow, that sounds great"", then I go and whip it out and she's like "WTH!!". Pretty good stuff.

    The 'dillo would be just as good, and you wouldn't have so much hair to singe off. Plus, those shell sections would make good chips for frog egg dip.

    Since they're both throw-backs to another time they would be about the same, nutritionally. The one advantage of the possum is that it has that little change purse built into its belly.
