    I only recognize the chicken pot pie and the meatball subs. And I also won't eat anything I can't pronounce! :rotflmao: :tooth:

    Me and alfredo....don't mix. I used to like it. Then, one time at Olive Garden both myself and an ex girlfriend got that. Next morning, both of us were puking our guts out. Once I un-eat something, I typically won't eat it again for a looooong time. I tried it for the first time in 15 years ago a few years back....nah. Can't do it.

    I get it. I haven't eaten in a Denny's since 1998 after a bad sausage.........

    Not too much. That is some tricky grammar there. Pasty= Meat/potato/rutabaga pastry. Pastie= singular boob cover. Pasties= Plural for both words.

    On an inspection trip through central Mississippi, I picked up a 40-pound lug of just-harvested sweets from a grower there. Fresh ones are awesome, microwaved with a little butter. Some of the ones in the store have been in storage since approximately the Eisenhower administration!

    Fresh sweet potatoes baked in the oven and given a good dose of REAL butter is good eats.

    Little known fact about baked sweet potatoes: If you don't pinch the ends off after baking and before eating, they will produce 10X the amount of gas and give the butt-trumpet a run for its money! Also, eating any kind of beans with baked sweet potatoes is like mixing nitroglycerine with C-4. :silly:

    My secret to awesome sweet potatoes is steam. I peel and cut them into appx two inch chunks and steam them for 30 minutes. Add butter and brown sugar.

    Dan, You lost me with the brown sugar. Butter is fine, then season them with salt and pepper......Robin

    I have been dieting for the last two weeks (8 pounds lost) and decided to make something similar to the Big Boy/Weight Watcher's cabbage soup recipe. Diet or no diet, I love this soup. The kids liked it and even had seconds. Mrs. Jerm doctored it up "her way" and added some chicken stock, a bit of olive oil, diced potatoes, and a ton of garlic. The "base recipe" I have below comes in at 112 calories for a 16oz bowl. Every time I get this at Big Boy, I add a buttload of pepper. If I were to deviate from the base recipe, I would add garlic and dill on top of my buttload of pepper:

    1/2 cup diced carrots
    1/2 cup diced celery
    1/2 cup diced green peppers
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 quart water
    1 envelope onion soup mix
    1 quart canned tomatoes
    1 small (or half a large) head of cabbage chopped coarsely
    1 quart tomato juice

    In a stock pot, sweat carrots, celery, and green peppers with a bit of water and salt until tender.
    Add the remaining water and the rest of the ingredients to stock pot. Bring to boil, simmer on low for an hour or until the cabbage is tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.


    When you first add everything together, the onion soup flavor is going to come out strong-- I almost freaked out. After it simmers for awhile, the flavor starts to mellow and everything tastes like it is supposed to. The above makes about a gallon of soup.

    Thanks for the recipe Jerm, It sounds great. I happen to have all the ingredients on hand. I'll try it tonight!

    Thanks for that recipe Jerm. Made it this morning and had it for dinner, followed the recipe to the letter EXCEPT I couldn't resist adding some browned cubed Elk steak and another packet of Lipton onion soup mix. Yummy!!

    Awesome! I always use recipes as suggestions anyway. It appears that you made the concept work for you.
