I don't know what got into me this past week but I sure hope I'm delivered soon. Over the past week I've made Chili & Cheesie Potato Soup, breakfast for supper, pork sirloin roast, beef stroganoff and now tonight stir fry broccoli beef (along with yellow & zucchini squash cooked in butter and an asian salad seasoned with ginger/soy sauce). It's a good thing my daughter and her kids live with us, plus my son and his daughter only live about a mile away. Someone has to eat all this food. Enough already! I'm not cooking for the next week (maybe).

My house smells wonderfully delicious! I seasoned a 4 pound pork sirloin roast with a salt-pepper-garlic salt-chili powder rub then seared it in a large skillet. Added some ckicken broth seasoned with minced garlic and teriyake sauce to the skillet and then baked the roast for two hours at 325 degrees. (I love my large skillet cuz' I can bake with it too.) I just added some red potatoes, carrots and onions. Will cook it for another hour. Bought some fresh green beans yesterday at Fresh Thyme and they're on the stove ready to be cooked here in a little bit. Cut up some cantaloupe and watermelon and that's gonna be our supper for tonight.

Saw a new recipe on Facebook and thought I'd try it...my family loved it! The skin was really crispy which was a hit with my daughter and grandchildren.

Bundt Pan Chicken

Ingredients:
-one whole chicken
-four potatoes/slice each one in 8 pieces
-6 carrots/peel and slice each one in 4 pieces
-1/2 large onion/diced
-3 gloves garlic/diced
-one lemon sliced or can use lemon juice
-olive oil
-salt
-pepper

In the bottom of a bundt pan, put potatoes, carrots, onion, garlic (or anything else you can think of). Season with some olive oil, salt, pepper. Top with lemon slices or lemon juice. (I didn't measure but I wouldn't think more than 1/4 olive oil.)

Rub more olive oil, salt and pepper onto chicken. (Again, I didn't measure...poured some olive oil into my hands and rubbed it on the chicken.)

Cover the hole in neck of bundt pan with aluminum foil. Where the chicken cavity opens, put it on the neck of the bundt pan. (It looks like the chicken is sitting up waving at you.)

Bake at 425 degrees for 55 minutes. Note: The chicken wasn't done at that time which it said it should be, so I took the potatoes and veggies out of the pan and put chicken back in oven for another 15 minutes.

It was delicious.

Yeah I've seen those bags, but prefer the larger peppers. Picky huh? I also wait for sales. They are usually cheap at Wally's but they're so stinking dinged up and old. I can find them sometimes in Mx. at a good price.

They charge more for the larger ones here in Omaha too but I can buy a bag of the smaller yellow, orange and red peppers (mixed together) for $3.99 on sale. So I always wait for them to go on sale. There's usually about a dozen or so smaller peppers in the bag which usually is the cost for one large one.

Message
I had some Italian Sausage in the freezer that I needed to use up. Decided to make soup with it. Just started adding whatever I could find in the frig and it turned out fantastic! Hopefully, I'll be able to duplicate this in the future. This makes a HUGE batch. Yay!

Italian Sweet Sausage Soup

-3 packages Johnsonville Italian Sweet Sausage
-2 tablespoons olive oil
-1 container (48 oz.) Swanson Chicken Broth (I use the one with 33% less sodium)
-1 dozen baby carrots, diced
-4 celery stalks, diced
-1 small onion, diced
-2 cloves garlic, finely diced
-1 green bell pepper, diced
-1 yellow pepper, diced
-1 red pepper, diced
-1 can tomatoes (14 1/2 oz.)
-1/2 cup salsa
-1 cup long grain rice
-salt and pepper to season

In a large pot, brown sausage on all sides in olive oil for several minutes. Slice sausage into chunks after browned.

Return sausage to large pot. Add all the other ingredients to pot except for rice. Pour chicken broth over sausage and vegetables. Add water until everything is covered in liquid. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. When soup is boiling add long grain rice. Cover with lid. Simmer for one half hour.

I served the soup with biscuits and it really made a complete meal. I also made strawberry angel food cake for dessert. My husband was a happy camper.

The Grand Mac and Mac Jr

McDonald's rolls out mini and mega versions of their classic burger

McDonald's is rolling out mini and extra-large versions of the Big Mac

Mac Jr. is made with a single 1/6-lb beef patty, with Big Mac accouterments

The Grand Mac is made with two 1/6-lb patties

That's compared to the normal Big Mac which has two 1/10-lb patties

How long they stay on the menu will depend on their popularity

The two new sizes of the Big Mac will be available for a few weeks in early 2017.

Whether they stay on the menu permanently will depend on sales.

Grandkids home today from school and I'm home from work (didn't want to risk driving 15 miles one way in an ice storm). I made them chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. Yummy. Smelled so good. I could only watch them enjoy the food cuz' of the gluten but as a kid that was one of my all time favorite meals...still would be if I could eat the gluten.

KFC SECRET RECIPE

THE ORIGINAL 11 SPICES SECRET RECIPE?

Prep: 30 minutes

Soak: 20-30 minutes

Cook: 15-18 minutes

Makes: 4 servings

2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 tablespoon salt

1/2 tablespoon dried thyme leaves

1/2 tablespoon dried basil leaves

1/3 tablespoon dried oregano leaves

1 tablespoon celery salt

1 tablespoon ground black pepper

1 tablespoon dried mustard

4 tablespoons paprika

2 tablespoons garlic salt

1 tablespoon ground ginger

3 tablespoons ground white pepper

1 cup buttermilk

1 egg, beaten

1 chicken, cut up, the breast pieces cut in half for more even frying

Expeller-pressed canola oil

1 Mix the flour in a bowl with all the herbs and spices; set aside.

2 Mix the buttermilk and egg together in a separate bowl until combined. Soak the chicken in the buttermilk mixture at room temperature, 20-30 minutes.

3 Remove chicken from the buttermilk, allowing excess to drip off. Dip the chicken pieces in the herb-spice-flour mixture to coat all sides, shaking off excess. Allow to sit on a rack over a baking sheet, 20 minutes.

4 Meanwhile, heat about 3 inches of the oil in a large Dutch oven (or similar heavy pot with high sides) over medium-high heat to 350 degrees. (Use a deep-frying thermometer to check the temperature.) When temperature is reached, lower the heat to medium to maintain it at 350. Fry 3 or 4 pieces at a time, being careful not to crowd the pot. Fry until medium golden brown, turning once, 15-18 minutes. Transfer chicken pieces to a baking sheet covered with paper towels. Allow the oil to return to temperature before adding more chicken. Repeat with remaining chicken.

"The original KFC chicken, I think, was better, because it had more breading to it," Ledington says. "It was individually hand-breaded and dropped in those pressure cookers. You cooked it until it started turning brown. And then you put the lid on the pressure cooker and brought it to 12 pounds of pressure for 10 minutes. And then you started letting the pressure off, and when you uncapped it and the pressure was off, it was perfect: golden brown and fall-off-the-bone."

I agree with you totally...homemade is much cheaper (and usually tastes much better too) - KFC has gotten so expensive. We haven't been there for several years because we can't justify spending that much money on chicken.

Hello
I am so sorry to announce that my "Video" of the Breakfast Club failed.
I will practice for the next time and find what went wrong and correct it.
It was my first time trying that app and I'll find one that I can use easily
before the next meeting on the 112th of November.

Joe I was going to put Cheryl's Speech on the Video and of course
didn't come out. Could you put a brief Message about her running for office.
We should give her our support.
Cheryl if you read this, maybe you could email something to our webmaster
and he can send out a bulk mail with your request. He is always ready to help
Mariners on their endeavors.

Again I appologize to everybody for my failed attempt.

You're probably right...I'd still have a garden too. My husband always prepares the soil. Some years he does the planting, some years I do the planting. The upkeep is mainly my responsibility though. He did have to help with the weeding some this year. We've had tons of rain and the weeds loved it. Only had to water the garden a couple times all summer long. The tomatoes and peppers didn't like the rain - a lot of rot - but still plenty of tomatoes to have my fair share and give some away.

My husband bought himself a pellet grill and I've been having a blast with it. I cook on it probably at least twice a week now and everything is delicious. After church there's going to be a fellowship meal so I have 5 pounds of pork tenderloin cooking on the grill now. Flavored it with a barbecue rub, pepper and garlic salt. It smells wonderful. The neighborhood will wake up craving meat and won't know why. Yummy!

We've got lots and lots of zucchini and cucumbers from our garden. My granddaughter made zucchini bread. I grilled some on our pellet grill which were incredible and then fried some using a cornmeal mix. The tomatoes and peppers are struggling because we've had so much rain. Five pepper plants and only one small pepper so far. A few tomatoes but it's difficult for them to ripen because we've had so much rain. We haven't even had to water our yards yet this summer and the grass is still green. We should get lots of cantaloupe and watermelon because we have vines and flowers everywhere. We have four watermelon growing already...so they must like at this crazy rain. Will be making a cucumber/onion vinegar salad later today. Yummy! I love my little garden.

I made a pasta salad for the first time for a potluck we were going to. Thank goodness it turned out okay. I usually don't take untested food (especially if I didn't make it from a recipe) to these things but got lucky this time. My son makes incredible pasta salads and it's somewhat similar to some of his; however, his are more loaded and complicated than mine.

-1 package pasta (any kind you choose...I made mine with gluten free pasta...it looked liked a small sea shell, actually)
-1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
-1 package Italian Sausage, cooked thoroughly and diced into chunks
-1 can black olives, drained
-batch of green onions, diced
-1 bell pepper, diced
-1 package feta cheese
-1 cup Italian Salad Dressing (or more if you prefer...my son uses the entire bottle but that's too much for my liking)
-2 teaspoons minced garlic (in a jar but you could use fresh garlic as well)
-Seasonings to flavor (I used salt, pepper, seasoning salt)

Cook pasta a la dente according to instructions on package (pasta is done but still firm). Drain water off pasta. Put pasta in a 13" X 9" baking dish. While pasta is still hot stir in mozzarella cheese. While pasta cools, cook Italian Sausage in pan until thoroughly cooked. Dice up sausage into small chunks and put in with pasta. Add drained black olives, diced green onions, and seasonings. Mix until blended but don't overdue the mixing or your pasta can become limp. I made the pasta salad the night before. Right before serving I mixed in the Italian Dressing and then sprinkled feta cheese on top.

I like cheesy potatoes but my husband doesn't. I've tried various recipes over the years and he's turned his nose up at every single one of them. Until yesterday. I finally found one he likes and it's incredibly easy to make. Whoo-hoo. Now I can have my cheesy potatoes and eat them too.

Ingredients:
-1 can cream of chicken soup (I used a gluten-free can)
-1 1/2 cups sour cream
-1 pkg. 32 oz. frozen diced hash browns
-1 pkg. (2 cups)shredded cheddar cheese
-20 Ritz crackers crumbled (although I used gluten-free crackers)
-2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted

Mix cream of chicken soup and sour cream together in a large bowl. Add diced hash browns and shredded cheese. Mix well. Spray bottom of a 9"X13" baking dish with Pam. Pour potato mixture into baking pan. In a small bowl mix together crumbled crackers and melted butter. Sprinkle on top of cheesy potatoes. Bakes at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.

It was very good although I'm going to slightly change the recipe. Next time I'm going to add green onions and some crispy bacon to the potato mixture.

I'm hungry...not just for anything in general either. I want a big juicy hamburger on a gluten-filled bun with a side order of onion rings dipped in gluten then deep fried. I usually handle the no-gluten thing fairly well but today I want it. Oh, this isn't overeaters anonymous? Sorry, my bad. Just joking but I really do want the hamburger and onion rings dripping in gluten. This too shall pass.

Chocolate makes you smarter

People who eat chocolate at least once a week see their memory and abstract thinking improve, researchers say

It's good for your heart, reduces the risk of strokes and even helps protect your skin from the sun.

Now, another apparent benefit has been added to the list of chocolate's nutritional qualities: it makes you smarter.

A study, published recently in the journal, Appetite, indicated that people who eat chocolate at least once a week saw their memory and abstract thinking improve.

“It's significant – it touches a number of cognitive domains,” psychologist Merrill Elias, one of the leaders of the study, told the Washington Post.

Don't bother trying Burger King's new hot dogs, neither one of them.. YUCK! My wife described it perfectly, "It taste like those cheap drive-in hot dogs".

LOUSY! A waste of money. I'm sure it won't be long before they're discontinued.

My husband had a "sweet tooth" last night but there wasn't much in the house. Then I remembered something my mom made when I was a kid...homemade donuts from biscuits. Made a hole in the biscuits, deep fried the suckers and rolled them in a cinnamon sugar mix. Mike and the grandkids scarfed them down. And then I remembered my mom made crispy tortilla chips from corn tortillas. Yep. They ate all of those too. Not the healthiest of snacks but the family is happy. And now the cupboards are bare. I really don't like to go grocery shopping.

If you like Sauerkraut you'll love this recipe...take a 4-5 lb. pork tenderloin (we wait for the sale prices) and brown it on both sides in a skillet. In slow cooker, put a jar of sauerkraut and onion soup mix and mix together. Put pork tenderloin in and cook on low for 7-8 hours. The sauerkraut tenderizes the meat and makes the best pulled pork we've ever eaten. (In fact, if we don't tell people we cooked it in sauerkraut, most don't even figure it out.) 4-5 lb. is a lot of pulled pork but when I take it to fellowship meals at church, it all gets eaten.

It's here. Pass the cherry puffins, pizza and popcorn please. They're not calling it a blizzard because the winds are only blowing at 35 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. The winds aren't blowing hard enough to be considered a blizzard just yet, I guess. I plan on eating my way through it.

Female brain is not wired for weight loss, scientists conclude

Hormones responsible for regulating appetite, physical activity and energy expenditure work differently in men and women according to new research

For women, shedding the pounds can feel like a unending struggle of dieting and exercise with little results.

But a new study suggests that there could be a reason why females find it more difficult to lose weight than men.

Researchers say hormones responsible for regulating appetite, physical activity and energy expenditure work differently in the sexes.

The discovery could change the way obesity is tackled through targeted medication, experts at the University of Aberdeen believe.

Working with teams from the University of Cambridge and the University of Michigan, they used a mouse model to study how weight gain differs in each sex depending on physical activity and energy expenditure.

During the study, researchers were able to transform obese male into lean, healthy mice, but the same transformation did not occur in the female mice.

Current obesity medications stimulate the production of POMC peptides in the brain which regulate appetite, increase energy expenditure through heat and encourage movement. But researchers found in female mice the hormones only regulated appetite - they did not have the extra benefits.

The project was led by Professor Lora Heisler from the Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health at the University of Aberdeen.

She said: "The World Health Organisation reports higher rates of obesity in women worldwide, reaching twice the prevalence of men in some parts of the world.

"Currently there is no difference in how obesity is treated in men and women. However, what we have discovered is that the part of the brain that has a significant influence on how we use the calories that we eat is wired differently in males and females.

"Cells in this brain region make important brain hormones called pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) peptides that are responsible for regulating our appetite, physical activity, energy expenditure and body weight.

"What we have discovered is that not every POMC neuron performs the same function.

"While the subset targeted by obesity medication lorcaserin influences appetite in both males and female mice, in males, this subset has the added benefit of also modulating physical activity and energy expenditure.

"In female mice, this source of POMC peptides does not strongly modulate physical activity or energy expenditure.

"So, while medications targeting this source of POMC peptides may effectively reduce appetite in females, our evidence suggests that they will not tap into the signals in our brain that modulate physical activity and energy expenditure."

Currently around 66 per cent of men are overweight or obese and 57 per cent of women. However 74 per cent of men will be overweight or obese by 2030 and 64 per cent of women.

Weight gain is a risk factor for many health problems, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke and some cancers. Obesity and diabetes already costs the UK over £5billion every year which is likely to rise to £50 billion in the next 36 years.

The research, published in the journal Molecular Metabolism, could lead to the development of new sex-specific medications.

Prof Heisler added: "More than half of people in the UK are overweight and one in four are clinically obese.

"This is an enormous percentage of the population and given the links established between obesity and serious medical illnesses including cancer, heart disease and diabetes, it is essential that we strive to find new methods to tackle this epidemic to improve our health.

"This study reveals that a sex difference in physical activity, energy expenditure and body weight is driven by a specific source of brain POMC peptides.

"This could have broad implications for medications used to combat obesity, which at present largely ignore the sex of the individual."

Popcorn. Check. Cookies (gluten-free, of course). Check. Hot Cocoa. Check. Chips. Check. Green Tea. Check. Ice Cream. Check. Pizza (of course, gluten-free). Check. Okay. I'm ready for the blizzard (and I'm not talking Dairy Queen here) with 8 - 12 inches of snow predicted. See you on the other side in a couple of days, although the action really won't start until this evening.
