    Good morning, everybody…

    It’s “Doughnut Appreciation Day,” today. I’ve made doughnuts, and I appreciate why Mother always called upon my sister and myself to help. The deep-frying, shaking, and turning out steps are tedious when done by oneself but really, really easy when you have three people doing them. I’m not going to post that recipe today, I’m sure I will one day, because it’s appreciation day not make doughnuts day. Instead, as yesterday, I’m posting another long-time favourite.

    From: “Miss Fluffy’s Rice Cook Book”

    Published By: Rice Council for Market Development

    (early to mid 60’s?)(It’s actually more of a pamphlet than book and there is no further publishing data listed.)

    Received: Compliments of DELTA RICE

    “Porcupine Meat Balls”

    1 pound ground beef
    1/2 cup uncooked rice
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    1 small onion, sliced
    1/2 green pepper, sliced
    1 tablespoon shortening
    2 1/2 cups tomato juice
    Dash of nutmeg
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Combine ground beef, rice, salt, and pepper. Form into small balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Place in baking dish. In a skillet, brown onions, and green pepper in shortening.

    Add tomato juice, nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour over meat balls. Cover baking dish.

    Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) about 1 hour, or until rice is very tender.

    Makes 8 porcupines.

    Notes from me:

    I add a 1/3 of a cup of sugar (white or brown) to take the edge off the tomato juice, but that’s just me.

    If you are uncertain of your oven temperature gauge, add an extra cup of water and turn the temperature to 400 degrees.

    One pound of ground meat is, to all intents and purposes, two tightly packed level measuring cups.

    Make sure the meatballs are covered by the tomato juice. If they are not, add enough juice until they are. This does not hurt the recipe, but leaving the tops “dry” does.

    I have often used the whole of the pepper if it’s not obviously too big. Again, it does not hurt the recipe.

    Put a sheet of tin foil between the lid and the pan and crimp it to the sides of the pan (whichever side up that strikes your fancy) . With the lid on top the moisture is sealed in. It makes the lid easy to clean too.

    On this day in 1895, George B. Selden was granted the first United States patent for an internal combustion engine automobile. He was a patent lawyer by profession and for a time represented George Eastman of Kodak fame. (Selden’s father was also a lawyer. He represented Susan B. Anthony at her suffrage trial after she voted for Ulysses S. Grant, coincidentally on November 5, but in1872.)

    The engine of the automobile was only one cylinder.

    As always, when it came to licensing and royalties, there were problems. The biggest came from, not surprisingly, Henry Ford and his allies. Selden won, and lost depending on the case.

    There is more information here.

    Wickipedia on Seldon

    Just as a side note, it is my belief that Alice went through the looking glass on November 4, the day before Guy Fawkes Day. I base this on her talk to the black kitten, Kitty, while chastising her for unwinding all the worsted.

    “Do you know what to-morrow is, Kitty?”

    “You’d have guessed if you’d been up in the window with me – only Dinah was making you tidy, so you couldn’t. I was watching the boys getting in sticks for the bonfire – and it wants plenty of sticks, Kitty! Only it got so cold, and it snowed so, they had to leave off. Never mind, we’ll go and see the bonfire to-morrow.”

    marg Lemon is also a great non-toxic, purifying cleaner, like baking soda is. ;-)

    Akenta I vote we celebrate Guy Fawkes Day today.

    Haven’t made those in a while! I used to love them, with ’smashed ’taters. Thanks for the idea. As always, I enjoy your recipes and tidbits of information.

    Good morning all!

    Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Parliament and the UK is celebrating by naming a holiday after him?

    @The Duke

    Chocolate is wonderful, but I prefer lemon on salmon.

    Guy Fawkes day is the day they burn an effigy of Guy Fawkes, if I remember my history correctly. I forget why. It sounds like something the LOCOS would do.

    JFRI, chocolate is a favorite of many.
    I also like lemon.
    But not both at once!
