      Rock salt. Slurp, swallow. Enter heaven through pearly gates.
      I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

        On that analogy, I'm glad I don't.......

          (Sorry in advance, doc)

          I'll gladly slurp and swallow salty things, but oysters would not be my first choice of heavenly appetizers.

            lol... I have a feeling your students could probably teach you a thing or two about slurping and swallowing... so I doubts you will do much warping..

              Wowzer, you are right about that one! I use my SIL, and by extension her three public-school kids, to keep me informed about the latest harmful and/or illegal and/or completely inappropriate fad. There are a lot. Unfortunately.

                Instead of the old ones on 'ere?!

                Doc, silly question, but what type of sausage casings would you recommend, or is it a bit of a trial and error job?

                  Depends on what you prefer. I normally use natural casing, but it is a little more difficult to work with. I prefer it to the collagen casing. The size of the casing also depends on what kind of sausage you are making. Since I don't make bologna (though I have been told I am full of it) I don't use the really large casings. I usually use the 32-35mm casing.

                    Cheers, I'd much rather use a natural casing, even if it is a bit harder, the collagen ones don't seem right to me!

                    Will probably get an assortment of skins when me snag maker turns up and have a play, even if a few skins get trashed in the learning process, it'll be worth it, thinking about it, me local butcher might be worth asking to see if he does them!

                    • Weekend was prety good. Got alot of work done. The 5 yr old grandson came out Friday night for an overnight stay. On Saturday, I took him out on the tractor and let him drive a bit, sitting in my lap while we cut the grass. He had a blast. the wife made some gluten free cookies, one is a coconut and rasin the other was a fudge cookie. Both were pretty good. Made a peach smoothie for the grandson and his cousin. It was pretty good, but not something I will do alot of.... waaaaay too much sugar in the orange juice and the peaches and cranberry sauce...... A nice refreshing treat....
                      I harvested some red beets, and the wife oven roasted them.... pretty tasty. I pulled some golden beets and she roasted them on Sunday.... oh how frikin yummy! They have the same "beet" flavor of a red beet, but they are sweet. I can eat those... and I think I need to plant some more of them!
                      I also took some rutabaga, peeled them, sliced them thin and fried them in some olive oil. They worked pretty well for a potato substitue for breakfast on Saturday.
                      Harvested my first zucchini this weekend too! And a bok choy that is bigger around than my head.... as well as the first of the Napa cabbage. Looks like the stir-fry season is here!

                      Sunday was a 6 mile run. It was humid and fairly hot, so I didn't go as far as I usually do. The humidity just sucks the life right out of ya...

                      This week is gonna be a busy one. I have to make a trip in to town to get some maple so I can make a footboard for a bed for my granddaughter. I made a crib for her and I have a set of plans that convert the crib to a daybed, then in to a twin sized bed. So, I need to get that project done, since they will be here to pick up the bed in a couple of weeks. I also want to make a maple cutting board for my daughter for her birthday. Grandson graduates from pre-school this week too. Add to that my normal egg deliveries, garden stuff... this is gonna be a fast and busy week! Tiz OK.. keeps me off the streets and outta the bars, which keeps me outta trouble with the missuz!

                      • That rutabaga idea is a doozy, as I like rutabaga. I have been eating too many spuds lately - they are still a house staple for everybody else in this house, and too easy to eat.

                          I'm learning to like them... have never really eaten them, so any experience with them is a new one...

                          • Woo hoo The paella book came in today....... I have read through it, and will go back and flag soe of the recipes that sound interesting to me..... and there are a bunch! There are some simple desserts and tapas as well. Next I take a look at the tapas cookbook. I will have to make a trip to the store and find the right rice and some spices for the pallea. Oh heck, I might turn in to a foodie if this keeps up!

                            • For goodness sakes... just don't turn into one of those rigid types that MEASURES things according to recipes all the time.

                                I usually use a recipe until I learn the technique, or get the hang of the ingredient mix, then I start playing with the proportions and ingredients etc..... I'm not that rigid.....
