Thanks for the stuffed mushroom caps recipe HL.  Will make them on Tuesday when my wife gets home.
One stuffed recipe deserves another so here is one of mine:

STUFFED PEPPERS

4-6 green or yellow/orange peppers
1 pound lean ground beef .  (Ground chicken or turkey are good substitutes as Zhatar tends to enhance their flavor)
1/2 cup grated onion
3 tablespoons uncooked rice
1 egg
3 tablespoons water
salt and black pepper
Zahtar (available at any ME food store)

SAUCE:

2 tablespoons oil
1 cup chopped onion
20 ounce can tomatoes (chopped if possible)
3 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons sugar


Prepare peppers by cutting a circle in the top and pulling or cutting out the seeds. Rinse and set aside. In a bowl mix together the meat, grated onion (place a chopped onion and the 3 tbs of water in a food processor and process until pureed), rice, egg, 1 and 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper, heaping tbspn of Zahtar.

Stuff peppers with this mixture and place in a roasting pan. In a saucepan, brown the chopped onion in the oil. Add all other ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes so that flavours will blend. Pour sauce over the peppers making sure that some of the sauce stays on top of the peppers. Cover and bake at 350 until done (45 minutes) basting once or twice. Tastes even better when reheated.

Thank you Mud for being the first one to sign up to buy a cookbook.  That is very generous of you to support Army.ca, especially when you find out what the introductory price will be.   ;D  Now run along and tell all of your friends about it too.

You sure you want to let that secret out?

Oh, what the ..., yeah, I'm betting there are a lot of FNG that want to follow in the footsteps of those gallant experimenters that finally got it right....(don't mix with antifreeze I would think might be one caution)

Okay let's do some Mexican...shall we
I had this last summer in PEI with a friend who was raised in the Southern states and it is more than worth the effort...

Pozole  Pork and Hominy Soup

1 kg pork shoulder, cut into large pieces
3 litres of water
2 x 500 g cans hominy or corn kernels, drained
2 onions, peeled and finely chopped
1 tsp salt
2 c shredded cabbage, or 1/2 small cabbage shredded
8 spring onions, finely chopped
2 carrots, peeled and grated
2 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and finely chopped
3 radishes, chopped
3 limes, cut into wedges
3 fresh hot red or green chillies, finely chopped
chili sauce, readymade or homemade

Place pork, water, hominy, onion and salt in a large, heavy based saucepan.  Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2 -3 hours, or until the meat is tender.
Remove the pork from soup and cool. Shred meat.  Skim fat from the surface of cooled soup.
Return shredded meat to soup and reheat.
Serve cabbage, spring onions, carrots, tomatoes, radishes, chillies, limes and chili sauce in separate bowls for each person to serve themselves.
You can substitute 2 medium chickens or 1 small turkey for the pork

So, does HotLips get her own section in the cookbook? or maybe we should build the sections around her so she has a recipe for each.   :D

How about some drinks  ;D

Margarita

1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
coarse salt
1 1/2 Tbsp tequila
1 1/2 Tbsp curacao or Cointreau
1/2 c crushed ice

Moisten rim of serving glass with lime juice and dip in the salt.
Place tequila, curacao, remaining lime juice and ice in blender and blend until slushy.
Serve in prepared glass.

A variation is fruit Margaritas ( I like these they are good for you  ;D)

Add a combination of fresh fruit (strawberries, pineapple, mango or bananas) and blend with tequila, curacao, lime juice and ice.
When making fruit margaritas no need to rim the glass with salt and lime...although I have seem them rimmed with coarse sugar.

Enjoy

I pared down this thread, mostly on the first page. I also removed the Betty Crocker recipes, who wants their brownies from a bag anyway?

Gimme more booze food.

And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.

borrowed from the Mrs...........

Poached Salmon with Scallops:

salmon fillets (however many people you are going to feed)
white wine
dill weed

Poach the salmon fillets in the white wine and dill weed until done (flakes easily)

Meanwhile, saute scallops with a little minced garlic in butter

when the salmon is done, move to a plate, pour scallops over and sprinkle with sliced green opnion

Adjust the quantities according the number of people being fed!   Best enjoyed with a nice white wine!!

Not a lot of palm trees here....other than the vision of me cracking open a coconut with a dull hatchet...is coconut milk available any other way?
