Marybeth at Finder Creations goes the extra mile this week by providing us with four tasty recipes for children. She prefers them with gravy; I think baked in a pie is still the best way to go. Then again, I'm a fairy tale purist.
David(aka Gullyborg) of Resistance is Futile! gives us a decadent chocolate mousse "cheesecake", which you'll make in the must-have for every kitchen worth its weight in calories: a springform pan. I think my waistline expanded while just reading the doggone thing.
Dale at Mostly Cajun uses the wayback machine to give us the real, honest to goodness, home on the range, cowboy chili. It contains none of those fancy beans or tomatoes, just beef and chili powder. Okay, onions too. That's all you need: beef, chili powder and onions. And maybe some cloves of garlic. That's all you need: beef, chili powder, onions and some cloves of garlic. That's all you need...(okay, I couldn't resist inserting a reference to one of the greatest movies of all time; sue me).
Also, I still feel like what comes out of the south end of a north bound camel, but now I'm at least a little chipper[after eating the roast], ya know?
A much tastier cure for the common cold than cough syrup.
Owlish of Owlish Mutterings puts his leftover blackeyed peas and tomatoes to good use by making an "enchilada lasagna" in his Crock Pot, cooking it for 3-4 hours, which coincidentally is the length of an NFL playoff game. I'm just saying.
The authoress of this particular Carnival gives us another entry in the roast category this week, although Beth decides to use the other white meat instead of beef, which makes it a perfect way to pig out. Oh sure, like you weren't thinking of the exact same rotten joke.
Got any leftover champagne? Me neither, but if you did, then this recipe from Punctilious of the Blog o'Ram will put it to good use. And you'll probably need it to wash down the Wicked Mustard you put on your baked ham.
If your time is precious to you, then this recipe from Triticale is just what you've been looking for. Put everything into your slow cooker and go enjoy the day. When you return, something warm and delicious will be waiting for you.
Here's another doubleshot of recipes, this time from Christina over at Feisty Repartee. The first one is for Sand Tart cookies. Those will be a great followup to the Sweet and Sour Pork you'll be having for dinner.
And I, your humble host for this week's Carnival, bring you three desserts. Why yes, my dentist does have a summer home in Palm Springs. Why do you ask?
Thanks to everyone who submitted this week. If I somehow missed yours, let me know and I'll update the Carnival.
Update: Okay, somehow I missed a few recipes. Here goes the first Carnival addendum. It probably won't be the last. Sorry to all you folks that I missed the first time.
Also, a minor correction to my verbiage about Hellbilly's recipe. Sorry about the mixup; it makes much more sense this way. I'm nothing if not easily confused.
Update: Caltechgirl was kind enough to point me towards this recipe for Ghirardelli chocolate chip cookies, which I missed the
first second time. I think maybe I'll do a little baking when I get home tonight...
Final update: Don't forget that next week's Carnival will be hosted at One Happy Dog Speaks.Posted by Physics Geek at January 7, 2005 11:54 PM Stumble It!
