BACON!!!

Who cares what they look like as long as they taste good!!!!

I love bacon!!!

Gonna have to try this (minus the celery! I hate celery!)

Yeah. We went light on the celery. The second time we chopped it up very small in the food processor. That helped! Smiley

Yeah! A george forman grill will save your butt!  That and a toaster oven. I mean, seriously, even if you don't get the grill, get the toaster oven. Its an oven, just tiny. Great for one person sized food. You can bake in it like a regular oven, even broil a steak up!

There is carb free pasta out there, though I don't know how you could boil it without a stove. Hm. has anyone ever tried putting a pot on the george forman grill? I wonder if it'll boil water. I know its slanted and all... MacGuyver (sp?) where are you!? Wink

You could add some chicken to a salad. They sell canned, cooked, white meat chicken. I know it sounds gross, but it isn't!

Marinades are also great... well, the ones that don't have carbs. I believe wishbone or kraft makes their italian dressing with 0 carbs, or a version of it. Marinate some chicken breast in that and stick it in the toaster oven to bake!

There is a lot you could do. Smiley I would recommend you find something to cook meat outside of a microwave, though. Meat just comes out spongy and eeew from a microwave.

This is *SUPER* easy. Duck sauce chicken legs/wings. Kids *love* them and it couldn't be easier.

Get chicken legs or wings (or any piece of the chicken really). Place spread out on a cookie sheet. Cover each piece with some duck sauce (easily found in almost all grocery stores). Sprinkle with a bit of salt. Will give you a sweet and savory taste. Bake in the oven on 425 until chicken is done, somewhere around 20 minutes if your pieces are defrosted. Halfway through, turn the pieces over and put some of the run off sauce back on the pieces. When they're done, the duck sauce will start to brown/carmelize and it will LOOK TASTY! Smiley

We even save the packets of duck sauce we get from chinese delivery and make a batch of these when we have enough packets!

Yes, yes, tut it up Smiley  I'm dying for one of these! We have our plastic bags in the cabinet, on top of the lazy susan that holds the spices. The damn things keep falling down on us every time we turn the lazy susan looking for spices! OY!

Woah! You are one productive woman! Smiley  *jealous* Wink  Seriously, though, they look amazing. Nice attention to detail. Smiley

I'm sure someone's posted it already, but I'm too sleepy to run through 9 pages of replies!  The mockup can be called a toile, a mockup, or a muslin...depending on where you're from and who you learned from. Smiley

You did a great job on that dress, too. It looks professional, and it fits you SO well!! Congrats Smiley
128  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Bacon Stuffing Balls! on: November 26, 2007 05:40:50 PM
I found this recipe in one of my grandmother's cookbooks from the 70's. Whipped it up for thanksgiving and it was DELISH! ... and I don't even like stuffing! Wink Give it a try!

6 slices of bacon
2 stalks of celery, chopped
1/2 medium onion, chopped (more if you'd like)
2 eggs
1 1/4 c. chicken broth
1 tbsp parsley flakes or fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
6 cups dry bread cubes

* In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove from skillet. Crumble bacon & set aside.
* Cook celery & onion in bacon drippings until tender, not brown.
* In bowl, combine egg, chicken broth, parsley, poultry seasoning, crumbled bacon, cooked celery & onion.
* Add dry bread cubes. Toss lightly until well mixed.
* Add more broth if the mix is too dry. It will dry out a lot in the oven.
* Form into balls. Put in greased muffin pan.

Bake @ 325 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes. Makes appx 9 stuffing balls.

Since I haven't posted enough to post images, here's a link to the photo of the stuffing balls we made: http://www.randomology.org/thanksgiving072.jpg. We didn't ball these up well enough. These are more like half serving stuffing balls. Smiley We did another batch and they came out perfecto! Don't have pictures of those, though. We ate them up :\ This will have to do. Smiley

Shocked Thanks!! I'm going to try this recipe next week! Cheesy
130  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Soupily challenged on: November 18, 2007 05:43:45 PM
So I'm soupily challenged. I only like chicken noodle! I have been trying to find different kinds of soup to try, but so far I haven't come up with much to work with. I like warm, salty or savory soups... ya know, something that'll warm you to the core during a snowstorm. I'm allergic to cow's milk, so heavy creamy/cheesy soups are questionable.  I can substitute milk with soy milk, and can easily tolerate peccorino (sheep's milk cheese) or goat's milk cheese. So there *are* options.

Anyone have any ideas? I'd be in your debt! My devotion to chicken noodle will remain forever strong, but I've gotta spread my soupy wings!  Cheesy
