Taco soup tonight. Cheap easy and it just gets better after a day or two.
I've never made it, but my mother makes it and I love it! Taco soup is definitely on my bucket list. That looks awesome BTW, nock!
When you make you a bowl. Throw some some cheese and a glob of sour cream on it. Good stuff.
I'm glad you made the taco soup post last night.. otherwise I wouldn't of had this today! A cheap, and VERY satisfying meal for a cold day.
Talk about cheap eatin', I literally made this for peanuts!
That the stuff ,that’s hard on the mouth and diabetes ,but just can’t put it down when I start on it.Whats your recipe ,I just finished off a big container this week,
My beloved grandmother let me mess her kitchen up starting when I was really, really young, like 6 or 7 years old. I would do wasteful experiments with food whilst she watched my every move, then she would clean up my mess while I took a well deserved nap. Not once did she ever say one word to discourage me, often, she would actually encourage me to cook.
My grandmother was probably the best cook I have ever known, but she never once opened a cookbook that I ever saw. She had a few OLD cookbooks I found in a cupboard once while I was plundering (her word) around. I would pick a recipe out of one of the books, and she would help me read the list of ingredients and instructions, and I would cook it. Most of the recipes didn't turn out very well. But, I would always show my mother what I had made that day when she came to pick me up after work. I would always make her taste it. Almost always my mother would take a small taste and go, UM that's really good while heading to the back door to spit it while I wasn't looking.
That changed the day I stumbled upon the peanut brittle recipe I found in one of the old cookbooks! That day mother tasted the peanut brittle, then got another taste. Then she asked where it came from. I told her I made it, she looked over to my grandmother, who was nodding yes. My mother then, reaching for another piece asked where I got the recipe. She made me show her the exact recipe I used, and she sat at the kitchen table and wrote it down before we left.
I remember making peanut brittle for my mother several times over the next few years when she asked me so she could take it to work.
Anyhow, I love peanut brittle, but have only made it a handful of times over the years since. My wife, out of the clear blue mentioned it this afternoon, so I made her some. It's a foolproof recipe.
1/4 cup of water
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Bring these ingredients to a boil over medium heat, and when the sugar is dissolved, add 2 cups of peanuts. Continue cooking until the mixture reaches 300 degrees. Remove it from the heat and stir in 2 tablespoons of butter, and 1 tablespoon of baking soda. Pour the mixture on to a lightly greased cookie sheet and let it cool.
Thanks Barney we’ll give it a try,wife got this I had from Sams ,it was pretty good,but I like anything homemade better than store bought.
You all are making me hungry!
I love peanut brittle!
You've never seen a pawpaw? I love'em we've go hundreds of'em. Wish I had saved some seeds.
When pork sirloin roasts are 89¢/lb., soup is cheap, especially if most everything else in it was home preserved. I paired it with some homemade pimento cheese made from some manager special cheddar cheese, and frozen red bells from the garden.
I also made some YUGE fluffy cinnamon rolls topped with cream cheese frosting for dessert. I've found for best results, cinnamon rolls need to be made with a high gluten flour, and the dough well worked to get a good rise and texture . I also use real butter, and only egg yolks.
Them cinnamon rolls looks high dollar good.
There's never even a morsel of one of the cinnamon rolls left on a plate..
Dang gum it. I gotta move closer to Barney an Pentail
