Aysha, If its my cheeseburger pic you're waiting for, you'll have a long wait. My husb has a digital camera but I don't feel like asking him for any favors right now. Guess I should get into the 21st century, but when I take pictures, I go out and buy a disposable one. Pathetic, I know.

Leftover cheeseburgers tonight. We make 4 with a pound of meat and make it last 2 days. A few years ago, a pound would have been gone in one night, and we would still be hungry!! We've both lost weight and got into much better shape since then, despite the added empty calories of the booze.

Hey, sorry I've not been on this thread much... Had parents out to visit last week

We did xmas with my kids and my parents yesterday! It was a blast! Alas, I had to drop off my kids with my ex last night... It's her year to have them on xmas day

Anyway, for xmas dinner, I bought one of those smoked spiral-cut hams. That sat in the oven for a while, and then half an hour before it was done I cut a pineapple into chunks, put two cups or so of the pineapple in a ziploc bag and crushed it, and then poured that into a saucepan with melting butter and a whole bunch (prolly 2 cups) of brown sugar. When that started to boil I poured it over the ham.... and put the rest of the pineapple in the bottom of the pan.

Along with that we had broccoli with cheese sauce (I don't even bother to buy broccoli unless my dad's in town.... he loves it... no one knows why). And sourdough bread... Always love that stuff.

OH! If you like making cookies, see if you can find the "taste of home" xmas issue. It's thick and costs about $10, but it's worth every penny.

I've made about 5 batches of the pecan sandies with chocolate fudge topping. They vanish.

I welocme any and all cheeseburger pics but I had posted one in a post a few back. It was stacked high and thick as heck.
But its just a photobucket error pic now.

Well I had leftover chicken fried steak and mash. Had chicken nuggets and fries for lunch with the kids. Never too old for those.
And breakfast was a yogurt and an egg and cheese on an everything bagel.
I really need to change my eating habits. Especially since I am just flopping around the house now.

I love spiral ham. And your glaze sounds amazing.

VC,

I got a trip to Costco later today so count me in, in spirit if not body! I'm betting it's a mad house today.

We are still undecided on turkey or ham for Christmas day. Anyone have a good recipe for oyster dressing? I was thinking for Christmas Eve...baked trout would be good.
We have a good seafood shop here.

Love,

Lenina

I've been shopping at Costco so long I sometimes have to get reminded not to call it "Price Club"

It's an hour and a half from my house, so in the summer I have to throw a large cooler in the bed so any meat I buy doesn't get too warm.

Gotta drive to Detroit tonight... it's a city I've spent very little time in. Actually I think I've spent more time in the airport than anywhere else. But I'll be in the city during dinner time, so hopefully I'll find a nice restaurant to go to.

To prepare Baccala, rinse the salt off it and soak it in cold water or milk for 24 hours, (refrigerate it in hot weather), changing the water 2-3 times daily.

Drain the cod, rinse it, and drain it well.

Once it has soaked skin it, pick out the bones, and it's ready for use.

Ingredients for Baccalà salad:

* 1 lb salt cod, soaked and drained
* 2 cloves garlic, chopped
* 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
* 1 lemon, juiced
* 1/2 cup whole cured black olives
* 1 celery stalk, diced
* 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
* 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Method:

1. Place pre-soaked salt cod fish in a medium saucepan.

2. Add enough water to cover cod fish by 1 inch.

3. Bring the water to a boil and simmer for 3 minutes or until the fish flakes easily. Do not overcook.

4. Remove the cod and drain the cod well.

5. In a bowl mix the garlic, olives, celery, and black pepper, red pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil.

6. Break the cod apart in medium pieces and add to the bowl.

7. Toss the cod with the garlic-olive mixture.

8. Refrigerate and let sit for at least one half hour before serving.

9. Serve Baccala salad cold or at room temperature.

Chunk

If you guys make me any more hungry, here at the office, I'll bite off a chunk of my desk.

Does anyone have any ketchup or salt or worchester sauce?

Thanks Vicious. I just found this one online. Can't I buy boneless Bacala?

Start this two days in advance to allow time to soak the fish.


3 pounds dried baccala (salt cod), cut into 6 pieces
Pepper, to taste
1 jar (32 ounces) Pepperconi green-vinegar peppers
1 jar (32 ounces) Cherry Peppers (take seeds out)
1/2 cup top-quality olive oil, or more to taste
2 cups pitted Kalamata olives
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves


1. Two days ahead, cover the baccala with cold water. Refrigerate for 2 days, changing the water 2 times a day.

2. Set the baccala in a large pot of water. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 45 minutes or until tender. With a slotted spoon, remove the fish from the water; let it cool.

3. Cut the baccala into 2-inch pieces. Place on a platter. Sprinkle with pepper.

4. Drain the peppers and tear them into 1-inch pieces. Set them on the baccala. Sprinkle with olive oil - there should be enough to moisten the fish. Add olives and parsley.

OMG I'm so hungry myself Kelly
