My goodness! Is there not a food pantry somewhere you could take the excess? I hate throwing away perfectly good veggies too!

Check the internet for some really great recipes for cabbage with sausages as a one dish meal. Can't find mine anymore!

Fresh broccoli is so easy to freeze. Cut it up the way you like to serve it. Blanch by dropping into boiling water for about 2 minutes. Take it out and immediately put into a sink full of cold water. If you are doing a bunch, you can add a bunch of ice cubes to keep the water cold. This stops the co...

If you mean the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage, here is how I do mine. I use the KISS method (keep it simple stupid). Instead of covering with water and boiling on top of the stove, I put it in a big covered roaster with about 3 inches of water and roast with the lid on (I think technically tha...

When I was in college (um... like 40 years ago!) we made what we called Sh_t Pot Casserole. A can of Spaghettios with meatballs and a can of pork and beans. Mix it all up and heat or eat cold. Cheap. Actually sorta good!

Well, no...... :P I don't think you'd get the same result if you just mixed the two meats together! The beefalo is a specific breed of animal developed through many years of cross-breeding.

It's sort of unusual and you can find out more here.

No, beefalo is a breed developed after interbreeding buffalo and beef. It's all pretty complicated, but I think it's something like 3/5 beef and 2/5 buffalo in the breeding. You can find a lot on the internet about it. Supposedly it has saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium etc. at a level that is less...

Well, the pot roast sounded so darned good I made it for supper tonight. Dug a big old beefalo roast out of the freezer and grabbed a bag of sweet corn frozen from the garden last year while I was at it. Sophie, I was going to add a bit of red wine to it, but the only one I had here is fairly sweet ...

Can't wait to hear how it turns out! My theory on the better gravy is that as the liquid in the roaster simmers off it creates the brown stuff that good gravy is made from. Like I said there is a trick to how much. I wouldn't let it get below 1/2 - 1 inch of liquid. Then only add as much every 20 mi...

No, you don't have to preboil the veggies. You can also make this in a crock pot, but the result isn't quite a good as in a roaster in the oven. Just do pretty much the same thing and cook it on high for several hours. I think the difference is in the gravy at the end, but the crock pot method is al...

This my favorite way - it's the proverbial pot roast that every wife served on Sunday in the 50's and 60's. I use a nice big chuck roast and you will need a fairly big roaster and about 3 hours. I have an ancient old blue speckled one I use. Brown the roast in a skillet on both sides with a little s...

Kids absolutely love it and you can use whatever their favorite ice cream flavors are, not just sherbert.
