    Steamed Hams should NEVER be made from turkey.

    And don’t forget the butter and mayo, Joy!

    Good morning, Crustwoodians.

    Yeah, that’ll make the old cardio happy. Can’t argue with bacon on anything though. Yum. And I’m soooo glad that Marlene washes her hands after making dinner.

    A few Ho-Hos after dinner…
    along with a big slab of that frozen banana-flavored “creme” pie with Kool Whip and hot fudge sauce…

    That’ll kill the nasty taste of all that healthy food.

    Don’t forget….
    gotta get Dale to eat some vegetables, too…

    Joy should tell Marlene how much Burl loves his vegetables when she makes her “special recipe” corn…

    You just take one small can of creamed corn,
    stir in a cup and a half of bisquick,
    half a cup of sugar,
    2 eggs,
    half a stick of melted margarine,
    and a quarter cup of Cool Whip,
    and bake it in a cake pan for 20 minutes.

    He eats it right up and doesn’t complain!

    Especially with cheese sauce!

    This is not a fib! We were in a (nameless) restaurant in the east Texas town of Coldspring having lunch. The special was a fried pork chop with grease gravy and two sides. The choices were: mashed potatoes, corn, mac and cheese or pinto beans. The beverages were iced tea (the house wine of the South) and hammerhead coffee. (So named because if you put a hammer in the pot, it will eat up the handle and float the head.)

    My stepson used to work at Applebee’s and he told me the recipe for spareribs calls for pouring bacon grease on the ribs.

    So THAT’S why they are so tasty!
    If you add bacon drippings to a dish, it automatically becomes “country cooking”. I like to save bacon grease to sometimes add to the dog’s food, (makes a shiney coat), or to season my cast iron grill grates.

    Having lived three years in East Texas, I ate in a few restaurants with menus you described.
    I was just telling my wife the other day, about every privately owned restaurant in Texas has at least one animal head on the wall and 2 in 10 have a jackalope.

    Joy and Marlene should watch the documentary film "Forks Over Knives… ! ! ! They wouldn’t even eat turkey…..

    I use bacon fat to brown the onion and celery for clam chowder, but today I just shopped for first week of my new “low fat vegetarian” diet (no meat products other than 1 cup of yogurt daily and egg white) also no cheese, choocolate etc and very little oil for cooking. I have enough nutritional knowledge to have sufficient protein without meat or cheese, but I am initially going to follow this plan for only one year before making further changes. I have 2 tubs of my Voskos yogurt (creamiest I’ve found) and a quart of egg whites (I’ll decide in future how much I need) and I have bulk wild rice and 3 different legumes as well as some quinoa fusilli and lots of yummy fruit and veggies.

    I’m sure nothing in (even my normal meat-lover diet) would appeal to the Penny’s.

    Remember when emu was “the thing?” I don’t know how many people lost their a$$es ranching emus but it was all of them.

    I’ve eaten turkey burger so long when I eat regular beef I can taste all the fat and grease and leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I guess it’s kind of how like smokers who haven’t smoked in years get sick smoking a cigarette and wonder “How did I ever think this was good?”
