      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

any good spagetti sauce recipes?

Recommended Posts

I love spagetti and I don't have any good sauce recipes!

Does anyone have some good spagetti sauce recipes they would like to share? I like a fairly thick sauce, not runny. Not too much stuff in it, but not just tomato sauce either.

mmmmmm, now I am getting hungry!

I brown 1lb of ground pork with 1 med. onion, and a couple cloves of garlic. Sprinkle in a couple teaspoons of your fav brand of italion seasoning, and cover with classico tom & basil sauce. I let that simmer for a while and it is good to go.

I use the leftovers for mini pizzas too. Just slice some french bread butter and toast in the oven, cover with warm sauce and my fav cheese, and throw under the broiler to melt the cheese.

All good stuff, and much less time consuming than scratch tom sauce. Enjoy.

I have an amazing one that I learned from my mom, but I made some changes and it is even better! Sorry can't give it up.

Just experiment and think outside the box, but remember not to over do it on the spices lol I used to do that.

I too have a recipe that I cannot give out. It was given to me from a close friend who's 100% italian. It originally came from his great-great grandmother. Hand-made meatballs, and a sauce to die for. Original recipe served 50 people, so I had to break it down (that's a lot of meatballs!)

At thanksgiving, they don't eat turkey -- they have spaghetti. Now that's amore...

1 6lb 6oz can crushed tomato

1 6lb 6oz can tomato sauce

1 6lb 6oz can diced tomato

4 12oz can tomato paste

12 tsp. sugar

6 tsp. salt

4 green peppers chopped

2/3 oz.fresh Thyme

2/3 oz.fresh Basil

1 oz.fresh Oregano

1/2 oz.fresh Marjoram

5 large onions chopped

4 16oz. cans Mushrooms drained

2 Head of garlic peeled and chopped

Will make about 12 Quarts

Put in at least a 20 quart pot and simmer for 2to 3 hours

This is a recipe that I have been making now for about 10 years and everyone seems to like it a lot because of the great flavor the fresh ingredients add. I put the sauce in quart jars and vacuum seal them before freezing and fill to about a inch from the top to allow for expansion. I always stand them up in the freezer and have not had any crack the glass.

1lb ground beef non lean. Either roll into meatballs or just brown with onions, salt and pepper. Remove meat after browning and capture and retain as much of the animal by product as you can in the pan. Now add a small amount of water to this along with some brown sugar, your choice of catchup and a splash of vinegar. Simmer and adjust to taste by adding more of said ingredients and spices. Be creative.

To thicken, add small amounts of corn starch until desired consistency.

This is a very simple bottom end middle class Scandinavian/European recipe ranging from the 1950's.grin

Oh, it is a family secrete so don't tell anyone. wink

Good Luck...

Yea, it's pretty incredible. She won't even give me the recipe for fear I'll give it out. But it's awesome.

My brothers girlfriend has a family recipe that I am very slowwwwwwwly getting bits and pieces out of her. Amazing how tight those Italians can be with these old recipes but after having her sauce I guess I can see why. I don't know any way better to explain it but there is something about the depth and "subtleness" that is unbelievable.

Few reason for the tight lips.

In my family there is no recipe, you were shown how to make it so that is how it gets passed down. That being shown deal isn't a one time thing, it takes years of observation then an understanding on what and why its made that way. In the end you know what your trying to get for a finished product. When you got it down Papa will let you make the sauce. That means you have have the blessing to teach it. Oh, there are family members that try to make it but they don't get asked for a recipe by any Italians. They all know who makes it best and their kids will let them know that Punchy has the best sauce and they wish their dad could make it like his. That right there keeps the handed down sauce pure as you can't fool the kids.

I could give you a list of ingredients with directions but I can't explain how to adjust them because you will need to do that. Can't explain the consistency and how to get that by taking the lid off if need be. Can't tell you how to tell when its done by way of oil separation and it sits on top.

I'm not going to speak for all Italians families but the long line mine comes from isn't going to invest the time to show you only for you to end up making the slightest variation to the sauce. That would be almost as bad as you opening up my pot and sticking rosemary in the sauce. Lastly there are some that believe they have the best sause and think they could get rich off selling it, I know I do. smile

Couldn't agree more . Well said. I give a basic recipe out that my family used to use in a pinch, but I will never disappoint my aunt mary and give out the family recipe.

Traditional Spaghetti & Meatballs

Meatball Ingredients:

1lb. fresh ground Pork

2lbs. Fresh ground Chuck 85-93% Lean

3tbs. Dried Oregano

1 c. Fine bread crumbs (Progresso works)

1tsp. fresh cracked Pepper

1.tsp Garlic Powder

Sauce:

2-lbs. Pork ribs cut into single ribs(these are used for flavor primarily).

3-28Oz. cans crushed or pureed tomotoes

1-15 oz. can tomato paste

1-head of Garlic (Yes, 1-entire head, covers removed.

3-4 ozs. quality Olive Oil.

2-4 tbs. dried oregano (to taste)

Procedure:

in a very large deep (5-8 Qt.) heavy bottomed pan over med high heat, add olive oil and ribs, cook turning frequently and scraping the browned bits off the pan as you stir for appx. 15 minutes ,or unitl the ribs begin to leach juices from the marrow.

Reduce heat to med-low and add the crushed Garlic--yes all of it! Cook garlic for 3-4 minutes making sure it doesn't burn or it will get bitter.

Add crushed tomatoes and paste, stir well and reduce heat to simmer.

Next form your meatballs (I make 3" size) and brown them all over in a large non-stick pan. You'll have to turn them frequently to keep the shape and even browning. Drop them into your sauce as they are browned and they will continue to heat through while basking in your sauce for as many hours as you can stand before you cook the pasta and eat till you pass out.

You can eat the rib meat off the bones or strip it off into the sauce. This stuff gets batter the 2nd and 3rd. time you eat it as it ages. It freezes well too, so that's why the recipe is large--leftovers and a fair amount of work, so you may as well make a pile of it.

    • Well, I didn't have any results anywhere close to that... we had a good time at the cabin we stayed at (got home Saturday), but fishing was very tough... if we end up going up there again next year I'll be in touch...
    • Do I need to answer to you? Absolutely not, especially when you are going to try to put together some physics logic behind why treadmills are good, completely neglecting to describe how muscles function with a protagonist and antagonist relationship.  Meaning when your quads are suppose to relax and your hamstrings are suppose to engage and vice versa.  When that doesn't happen over and over again due to the belt doing the hamstrings work, then you are developing an inefficient movement pattern (compensation) and you can expect pain, arthritis, injury, replacement, etc. (Familiar, I know the arthritis bit is) You are training yourself not to work like you were created to work.  Although for you Del, I completely understand if you think you are smarter then how we as a species got to be who we are today.  Or at least you can find something to copy and paste from somebody else whom feels the way you do, who also got dooped into buying a treadmill or pays a monthly fee to walk on a treadmill.  If you want to start judging me, I can judge you Del and this can be very fun for me but then all the snowflakes on here would melt because I brought some heat.  Your old timer buddies would come and save you, delete half my postings that expose you know absolutely nothing about this topic, you all can cry about how I am so mean and hate filled, and then not troll me for a few months until you are updated with one of my postings and then crawl right back into an argument where I make you look stupid all over.  Up to you buddy.   Dave, I got 32 seconds into that video, couldnt stand the guy and stopped it.
    • I'm no expert on this stuff but I'm guessing this is what Dr. Juice is alluding to in his own condescending way.....    
    • I am still waiting for something exciting on the Wild front...nothing yet that is for sure...just hoping the same old guys have some gas left in the tank at the end of the year and the "young kids" have finally graduated and can bring it to another level...it's all about the playoffs...getting in is easy...actually making any sort of run is the is where the rubber meets the road. Cullen making a "family" decision vs a "hockey" decision was lucky for Chuck that is for sure and Cullen is not going to bring us to another level...but will be an OK role player and 3rd or 4th liner..probably will fill the jersey of a young guy we have unfortunately..but it is what it is.
    • Which questions?  The one about your education?   Must have been a long time ago since I don't recall it.  I do remember you being a big big huge fan of Chiropractic.   Perhaps you could refresh my memory, it shouldn't take long to post your CV   And I guess you must have missed physics class as well, since in physics calculations of forces are the same no matter the frame of reference, yet you continue to suggest there is a difference between a frame referenced to a person's center of mass, and one referenced to the earth.   I did see this article from a newspaper.... The author must have at least as much qualification as you do http://healthyliving.azcentral.com/muscles-worked-out-using-treadmill-7727.html What Muscles Are Worked Out When Using a Treadmill? The treadmill is a versatile exercise machine that lets users walk, jog and run on flat or uphill surfaces. In addition to providing an effective cardiovascular workout, treadmills also help strengthen the muscles of the legs and butt. Depending on the incline, you can work the front or the rear of your legs more intensely; however, every treadmill workout strengthens both.   The Quadriceps People who walk and jog on the treadmill with regularity gain endurance and strength in the quadriceps muscles. The quadriceps are named for the four large muscles on the front of the thighs; they are the rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis and vastus intermedius. These muscles help the body jump and squat in addition to walking and running. As a result, treadmill exercise applies to more than just working out; it also improves the ease with which you go about activities of daily living. The Hamstrings Like the quadriceps, "hamstrings" is also a collective name for a muscle group. The hamstrings, comprising the biceps femoris, the semitendinosus and the semimembranosus, lie between the buttocks and the back of the knee on the rear thigh. The muscles of the hamstrings are used for power walking and running in addition to squatting and jumping, and -- in general -- the more you exercise on the treadmill, the greater your hamstrings' endurance gains will become. However, according to the University of Wisconsin, roughly a quarter of collegiate athletes who sprint injure their hamstrings. As a result, warm up on the treadmill slowly, and increase running speeds gradually. The Calves The calf muscles of the rear lower leg, comprising the gastrocnemius and the soleus, also work hard during treadmill exercise. According to a study from the Laboratory of Medical Physics in The Netherlands, most of the work performed by the calf muscles occurs as you push off from your toes while walking, running and jumping. You can increase the workload on your calves -- and your hamstrings -- by increasing the incline on the treadmill. The Glutes The glutes make up the muscles of the rear end and, like the leg muscles, help you walk, jump and run. "Fitness" magazine reports that people who set their treadmills to a steep incline increase the workload on their glutes significantly, which increases strength, improves endurance and burns fat and calories. Although the treadmill helps you gain leg strength, the machine is primarily known for its cardiovascular health benefits. As a result, if you exercise regularly on a treadmill you can expect health gains on the inside of your body as well as the outside.    
    • Talk about humor, the original post was from April 2013.    I'm sure the OP has already bought his treadmill, used it as a clothes hanger and re-sold it on C-r-a-i-g-s-l-i-s-t. 
    • Deer numbers on PUBLIC land in NW WI are very low.  Private land seems to be the opposite.  I hunt a number of public areas in Polk County for the last ~10 years or so.   You have to work pretty hard to shoot a deer there.  MFL land is also heavily hunted, but there are lots of opportunities.   Once you learn an area you might do alright, but it is tough if you are new to the region.   Don't expect to get permission to hunt on any farms, in my experience they are all tied up for friends/family.
