complicated recipes

44 posts in this topic

I made some meatballs tonight.  As they were cooking in oven for a bit I dinked around looking up some meatball recipes on line.  Holy cow!  I was intimidated just looking at the ingredient lists.  Seems to be about 15 items long, no wonder so many people don't cook.

I happened to use some venny and pork Italian sausage so I didn't have to add any seasoning but I took about a pound of meat, maybe 3/4 or less cup of cracker crumbs and an egg and a bit of milk.  It couldn't have taken 5 minutes.

If I would have followed the first recipe I looked up I would have been at it for 20 minutes and would have had to look at the recipe 12 times.  It doesn't have to be that hard is what I'm saying.

Just pretend you're making meatloaf...dump your meat (did that sound right) in a big bowl, and have all your spices, Worcestershire, eggs, condiments, etc, uncapped, uncorked, chopped, and lined up in front of the bowl, and throw in one at a time while kneading. Roll the meatballs. Should be able to do it all in 10 mns easy.......

I envision a Smurf standing on the ice and casting until his fingers are bloody.  Every once in a while changing lures until he decides trolling may be the ticket for the day.  He's got a blue stringer and a big landing net that never gets used either.  At the end of the day he pulls the dresser drawer out and hops in and gets a good nights rest to do it all again the next day.

    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
