11  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: 32 runner beans - help! on: August 13, 2008 10:39:08 AM
I LOVE pickeld green beans.  =)  with dill & lots of garlic.
You can even take a moslty empty jar of pickels from fridge & add beans either raw (I prefr raw) or very lightly blanched & well dried drop into jar & let sit in fridge a few days. great on there own or chopped on top of a salad.
Stir fry them:http://kitchen-parade-veggieventure.blogspot.com/2007/01/quick-side-simple-skillet-green-beans.html
Roast them:  http://kitchen-parade-veggieventure.blogspot.com/2005/05/day-50-roasted-green-beans_20.html

or wash eat raw after you chilled them in fridge, eat with a mix of sour cream & vinigar.  uummm.

Sunday: we all went out for dinner. I had a slice of pizza & grilled chicken salad with incredible homemade greek dressing.
Monday: I marrinated chicken in the rest of the dressing (brought abt half the salad home & asked for an extra side of dressing lol   tasty stuff!! ) from Sunday cooked that in a skellet with some green & yellow string beans. had concord grape home made jello for dessert.

Today: is my crock pot day. Making stewed tomatoes (from http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/search/label/vegetarian ).    UPDATE: Tomtoes were incredible, I used less butter than called for, I greased crock with butter then used 2 pats butter in crock. . I  could have eaten MUCH more than I did, I doubled the recipe. SO GOOD!!  I also added basil, & a bit of minced garlic. I used juice fofrm tomatoe cans to cook long grain rice. Had the tomatoes, & the oninions from stew over rice... a BIG bowl.

In other half of my divided crock pot making beef stew, very basic: stew meat, a bottle of beer, a couple whole onions, (don't like to freeze them, weird texture, leave whole so I can fish out) lots of baby carrots. I will take lid off to thicken gravy towards the end. I'll freeze up in smaller contaners.  then as I eat it I'll more veggies in each serving.  UPDATE:[/b] The rgravy (er...beer) wasn;t thickening at all....I should say I did drege meat in flour, salt & pepper & quickly brown in skillet before adding to crock pot. I scooped out abt 4 oz of the juices, gravy & shook that with pepper, & 2 table spoonsflour. then slowly stirred it back into crock pot. That did the trick to thicken it up a bit. I used one bottle of Sarnac Wheat Beer. Made for tasty gravy!!

In my smaller crock pot I have 11 granny smith apples chopped, a couple pats of butter, lots of cinnamon, a handfull of dried cherries &  a handfull of peacans.  I will keep that in fridge to heat up & eat for breakfast  or eat cold as a snack. I find just 2 or 3 pats of butter (it's a 6 qt crock)  is enough  to give it what it needs... with ot adding a ton of fat.  this is my first tiem making with out brown sugar.... we will see how that goes, I usually add just a couple tablespoons, but teyinh with out it this time.   UPDATE: Way to full to try apples, will have some tomorrow for breakfast.

So dinner tonight will be stewed tomatoes over steamed rice & chicken from mon.

What is nutritional yeast exactly? ... Isn't it a supplement almost that vegans and the like use.. and even as a condiment sometimes? Does it have much flavor?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nutritional_yeast     Very high in B vitamins, also a source of protin, low in sodum & fat.
It tasty kinda lime cheese, I like it on Popcorn, sometimes on steamed rice, or if i make a bit of taco meat to mix with baggies I put that on.... I'm not vegan or veg, but I try to limit my meat a bit, trying to eat more fruit & veg. More "whole foods". 
17  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Jar Mixes on: August 09, 2008 11:22:46 AM
I've tried saving spaghetti sauce jars before, but I've never been able to get the smell out of them.  Do you have any tips for that?[/quote]
I find that this works as long as there is not a lot of garlic in the sauce...  soak jars over night in sink of hat water & soap. peel of label in morning, rinse jar  then add some crushed ice & salt as well as baking powder to jar shake it gently, let that sit all day  then wash again with soap & water.

The cake mix & soda would be a great idea.  Maybe even get a couple of the smaller silicone cake pans from Dollar Tree & put in a basket with the jar.  you cute do a really cute give for less than $5
