3 beaten eggs
2 16 oz pkgs frzn white corn thawed (definitely not canned)
1 cup shredded Jack cheese
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
1 2 oz jar pimentos drained (to make the kids wonder what I'm serving them!)
Combine ingredients in large bowl. Bake uncovered at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly.
(I won't be adding the pepperjack myself, since two of our kids don't like any sort of heat (alas – sniff), so I'll just be using 2 cups Jack.)
2 lbs cranberries
4 cored apples
4 peeled orages
4 cups sugar
Food process the first 3 ingredients. Stir in the sugar. Tastes best after sitting in the fridge for a day.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. I hope you'll be surrounded by family, friends, love, laughter and warmth.
Take Good Care,
1 c. sugar
1 c. water
1 16 oz bag fresh cranberries
1 cup chopped apple
1 cup chopped walnuts
½ cup raisins
juice from ½ orange
juice from ½ lemon
¼ cup Grand Marnier
Combine sugar and water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Ad the cranberries and return to a boil, the lower the heat so that the liquid simmers. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 10 – 15 minutes.
At this point the recipe says you can add 1 teaspoon each of ground cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg. (Frankly the thought of spiced cranberries doesn't sit with me right so our cranberries will merely be drunk!)
Then let the sauce cool
1.5 lb fresh ground Lean sirloin burger
1 small sweet onion (vidalia, red, etc.)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne powder and a scant pinch of habanero power if wanted.
pinch of salt (blue cheese will add enough of it's own here.)
A few twists of your favorite pepper.
1 cup crumbled Blue Cheese
Place ground beef in a good mixing bowl.
Dice onion finely and add to ground beef.
Add a dash of garlic powder to beef.
Mix beef mixture with your hands until well mixed and smooth.
Form your patties and place on a piece of wax paper on a baking sheet.
Add garlic powder, cayenne pepper, habanero pepper salt and pepper into a mortar. (You can substitute blackening seasoning if you like).
Grind thoroughly to a fine powder rub with your pestle.
Smooth a pinch or two of the rub to the tops of your burgers and lightly press into the surface.
Cook your burgers on a medium, medium hot grill to taste.
Just before they're done, add a couple of teaspoons of the crumbled bluecheese to the top of each burger.
Close the grill and let the cheese melt.
Get a bottle or two of your favorite beer.
Put a little blues on the CD.
Get some friends over.
