This is based on an old family recipe. I've changed it to suit my taste and items that are available today. Feel free to add your own touches and favorites.
My Mamaw used canned manderines instead of the oranges that I use and there was usually a version with shredded coconut and one without. Pecan halves are also a good addition.
This makes quite a bit. The yield is an estimate. It makes a good side dish for a barbeque! It's mainly based on a dish Daddy used to make on the stovetop when I was a kid. My version is a bit different though.
I found this at http:\www.oldetimecooking.com a while back. I finally got around to trying this last week. It's a keeper. The my two teenagers even ate leftovers OMG! I had mine over a large baked potato. They the kiddos and DW had it on buns.
I don't really remember why I decided this would be good to try. The family loved it so I kept fixing it. I also do these on the grill/smoker sometimes. If using a grill set up for indirect cooking. You could also use lemon, but my DIL seems to love the lime taste.
This is named for my SIL's SO, Dan. He wanted to fix nachos for one of our
pre-Christmas get togethers so he and I went off to the supermarket to find
ingredients. Since then I've modified it slightly, but it is pretty much
what we put together that day. (Use Ragu cheddar sauce)
This my version of a dish my family has served for Thanksgiving and Christmas every year for as long as I can remember. It's easy to prepare, but is always a hit. The yield is a guess because with all the dishes served on the holidays everyone takes smaller portions to sample everything.
I wasn't able to go grocery shopping because Rita had caused bare shelves
in the stores so I looked into the freezer to see what I could use. There
was a pot roast that seemed just the ticket. I thawed it out and this is
the result! DW Sue really liked this one.
I was looking for a potato side dish to go with a meal and found this one that I had collected on the internet sometime in the past. I didn't have time to follow the oven directions so I cooked it in the microwave for 12 minutes. The family seems to really like paprika, they ate this up.
I did some searching and the creator of this must have been a writer for TOH.
This is what we had for dinner tonight. I've made dishes similar before, but haven't measured out the ingredients so others can duplicate it. Feel free to improvise. Water could be easily sustituted for the tomato juice.
About half way through the cooking time taste the sauce for acidity. Add a pinch of sugar if needed to cut the acidity of the tomatoes.
Memorial day I was at my son, Chris' house and he was using some moderately expensive rubs on his barbecue and was disappointed that it didn't have the kick he wanted. So I came up with this one.
This is a bit too hot for the little one's or others that can't handle much heat. Reduce the cayenne and chili powder.
