Beer, Beer, Glorious Beer!

Right off the top, let me say that I am no great beer expert.  I HAVE been drinking more suds lately and enjoying them, but I am nowhere near as well traveled in beer as I am in single-malt whisky. …Continue

O my nerves!  I haven't had short ribs in YEARS!  Yummy-yummy!  (But then, I'm supposed to be avoiding beef....drat.)

Joan, you have me drooling again : )

Oh, you chefs have so many good ideas. I'm going to be sure to get tomatoes during my next grocery trip. 

I prefer freezing in glass jars, while a dear friend freezes in plastic bags.

Spanish rice, great with shrimp  Diablo 

Minestrone soup, 

Buffalo wings, I us Frank's hot sauce, 

Creole stew, 

Braised short ribs, with lots of napkins,

I was going to suggest a stew, but Chris beat me to it. One other option is to make it in batches in a slow cooker with pork, dried chili peppers, pinto beans, hominy, garlic, onions, oregano, and cumin. A variation on posole. I like Chris' idea of freezing portions for later use. Serve with tortillas and a splash of lime juice in the soup.

I was going to suggest a variety of canned (drained) beans, some kind of quick-cooking pasta, or alphabet noodles if you can find them, and  fresh zucchini cut into bite-size chunks.  (Cooked Italian sausage, if you want to get fancy.  Or saute' the sausage separately, and pour the soup over it when serving.)  Basil (must have plenty of fresh or dried basil!), oregano,salt, pepper, and a dash of red pepper flakes..If you have any fresh, or canned tomatoes on hand, chop them up and add with the zucchini.

AND...crusty Italian or French bread...whatever you prefer...on the side..

If you don't want to eat it like it is, make a stew with it; fill it up with all sorts of vegetables, mushrooms and beans, season with chilipowder, black pepper and whatever else you can find. Easy to divide into portions that you can freeze.

For some reason, I bought this huge can of tomato soup several months ago. I need to do something with it. Any suggestions?

Joan-I love Nigella. I use her How to be a Domestic Goddess book quite regularly.

Flying A-YES! It was Ciao Italia! Holy cow!

My sister is the chip and cracker fiend.  I may taste a new brand when she buys one, but I only get a craving for a handful about once a month or two.

D'ruther have popcorn.  Plain.  We have an old air popper that blows the popped kernels into whatever bowl you hold right under the exit vent.  No oil, no salt (unless you add it after the stuff is popped.)  My sister bought some flavored salt/powdered stuff to shake on popped corn.  *YAWN!*  .
