Hee hee hee 2% milk is what I drink!
I shudder to think where SKIM comes from --- but that's a story for an-udder day!
Oooh. Cool catch!
LOL good one!
Hahahahaha...what about almond milk? That's what I drink, it seems like it would be a real challenge to milk an almond.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha! LOL
I NEEDED THAT! Thanks!
Very cute Dale, @elvan I drink almond milk too, the latest from the Endocrinologist was I have to be lactose free and gluten free, low sugar and watch the fats, no red meat and what a joy to be alive...
But you know what, my Christmas dinner will be all about pig, smoked, fat, roasted, sausage too, cabbage rolls, and after that, we'll see! The smoked meat and smoked sausage is already in the fridge (from a German store I use about 3-4 times/year)
This is the Romanian Christmas roast a grew up with, and I crave every year (did not always make it, but I will next week),
That looks really good, yummy.
where does it begin and end? :-) :-)
It does not matter Dale, it gets finished in 3 days, give or take
ok. I can figure out the end. :-)
WOW, now that looks like a feast. I am planning to make lasagna for Christmas dinner...I am not sure where or when that started but I have been doing it for a while...YIKES, I need to get to the store to get the cheeses (they will NOT be lactose free so I will pay for that).
I'm making lasagna Friday. :-)
This seems to be the time of year Ricotta and Mozzarella are less expensive. I make 2 9x13 pans. I'm going to try the lasagna noodles you don't have to boil this time. :-)
I LOVE those noodles, it makes things so much easier. I used to cook the noodles and lay them on paper towels to get rid of the excess moisture and invariably, I tore some of them and ALWAYS burned my fingers. I will admit that I was terrified of the no boil noodles the first time I used them...all of that cheese and sauce and...YIKES, what if they didn't work?
So they must have worked for you?
I have a 10Ot pot. I was going to cook 1 1/2 boxes with some salt and oil and put them in a 10 gallon tub of cold water to separate them. I've never dried my noodles, just pull them out of the cooling water one at a time. I make 3 inch Turkey meatballs with egg and bread parsley and cheese and cook them in the sauce in a crock pot overnight. I cool them on a plate and slice them 1/2" think and layer them with the cheeses and sauce.
They DO work and they come out beautifully and reduce the time and effort that goes into the preparation. My lasagna has to be vegetarian...last year I had a request for a second pan of gluten free..that was where I drew the line. NO, you need gluten free, you MAKE it. I did make a huge pot of sauce for them, thinking I would get some back but they used all of it and I am not doing that again this year.
I just buy 4 25oz jars of marinara sauce for 2 9x13 pans
It was less expensive than tomato sauce. :-)
I make amazing tomato sauce.
I bet you do. I used to spend the time. do you put a pinch of sugar in your sauce?
I learned how to make sauce from a Jewish mom of a friend that had been taught by her Italian husbands mother.
Ever coat cooked rigatoni with a raw egg, parmesan and ricotta, salt and pepper? then the sauce. the sauce
and don't forget the sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley over the top
I absolutely do the sugar...fresh parsley makes a HUGE difference. I learned from my mother and then I lived next door to a young Italian woman whose sauce was ALMOST as good as Mom's. All five of us kids LOVE her sauce but I am the only one who can make it AND her cream puffs. My God I am tired.
Dale, jonescarp.aka.dale.Jan_2007, I don't know much about Italian cooking, but I've learned if you use oil in the cooking water for the pasta, the sauce won't stick well to it.
I too, switched to almond milk! It's way better for you! I can hardly tell the difference, but I think that regular milk was hurting my stomach! And since switching, my stomach feels better!
Cute post by the way, Dale!
