1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Do Clams Exist in Chicago? on: September 24, 2008 10:30:51 AM

There certainly are, I had a buddy that could even find live crawdads for sale in Chicago!  Sadly, I don't know where, just a note of encouragement....

The cloves sound like an interesting flavor.  It's getting up on stew season, and that one is going to show up for dinner.  Thanks.

I like the idea of the honey, too.  Done Rosemary before, but not in conjuncition with honey.  Thanks thanks!

Tacos.  You can feeda ton of people with tacos and they are a fun, social meal.

Brown some meat, a pound for every 4 people or so.  Season with tacos seasoning or spice it how you like.

Salad:
shredded lettuce head, 1/2 head for every 4 people
diced tomatoes, about 2 per 4 people

shredded cheese

Beans:
use either canned refrieds, canned reds or pintos, or even cheaper, but slower would be dry reds or pintos, or even make your own refireds (I like to add diced chiles to refrieds) or you can put out more than one kind

Salsa-
make your own if you can swing it
tomatoes
lime juice
salt
cilantro
onion
hot peppers

tortillas
whatever you like

You can make bean dip or cheese dip (like Ro-Tel) to go with if you want

just put it all out and let everyone fill their plate with fixin's that they like and fill a tortilla and eat it.  Repeat until you are stuffed.

I don't have that one, I'll have to look into it.  Thanks for the tip.

Not the cheapest but a great way to cook for a group-cajun shrimp boil.  Use outdoor propane cookers and do it up!  I also use my propane cooker for corn on the cob, and other need-to-boil-a-ton-of-water-really-fast recipes.  (Like pasta for a ton of people, for instance.)  Any chance any of your group is a hunter?  That could really defray the cost of meat...

The Complete Venison Cookbook: From Field to Table by Jim Casada and Ann Casada

Not for everybody, but man they have some good stuff in there.  Another one I use a ton is:  Dressing & Cooking Wild Game: From Field to Table: Big Game, Small Game, Upland Birds & Waterfowl

That one is especially good for the beginner as it has a very good photographic section covering everything from beginning field dressing to final butchering.

The recipies in both these books are outstanding.  I can't tell you how many pages are dog eared and post-it tabbed.  Every recipie I have tried is a winner.

Hard to beat chicken wire!  Easy to bend into whatever shape you like, cheap durable...it's just ugly is all...

How about a PILE of habanero peppers?  Mama didn't know what they were, and planted 5 plants of them, and now we have a ton of them sitting around ready to burst into flames any minute.  Can you dry them?  If so, how?  One little perpper does a whole batch of salsa up right.  What to do with the rest?

I am sure that there is a section somewhedre discussing this topic, but I have yet to find it...

Does anybody go completely old school and go to Fur Rendezvous and re-enacting festivals, etc?  It seems like there is probably a market for handmade clothing and goods at these things.

Anybody?  If you go, what is your niche?  How authentic are you in your methods and materials?

Thanks,
HB

I can't help with your current situation, but as for an ounce of prevention, you could use undyed leather.  I know about begging and choosing, but if you wanted- oh I don't know, say some deer leather in it's natural color, there is probably some way to get some...mentioned in another post...by me...in this room.

Just a thought.
