    The Recipe Thread.

    The Fun and Games Lounge could use a recipe thread.

    Anyone have a good one that they are anxious to share with the rest of us?

    I could use some new meal ideas.

    Re: The Recipe Thread.

    My grandson likes my meatloaf, and I don't really cook where I measure things out.

    I take equal parts of ground beef, and ground pork and I mix that with some egg, Italian style breadrumbs, and ketchup.

    I mix that all together, and bake it in a 350 degree oven for one hour. The ketchup keeps it moist as well as gives it a nice flavor.

    Re: The Recipe Thread.

    This is one of the salads we did for my daughters wedding. But instead of the ramen noodles, we used the crunchy chinese noodles instead so you can leave off the butter because the noodles don't have to be saute'd. Its killer and I still make this when I have a pot luck to go to.

    Crunchy Romaine Toss



    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 (3 ounce) package ramen noodles, broken

      • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
      • 1 1/2 cups chopped broccoli
      • 1 small head romaine lettuce, torn
      • 4 green onions, chopped
      • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts



        In a jar with a tight-fitting lid,
        combine the sugar, oil, vinegar, soy sauce, salt and pepper; shake well. Discard seasoning packet from noodles or save for another use. In a skillet, saute noodles in butter until golden. In a large bowl, combine noodles, broccoli, romaine and onions. Just before serving, toss with dressing and walnuts.

    Re: The Recipe Thread.

    Here's one that even I can handle;

    1) Get can of soup.

    2) Open said can of soup and pour into a bowl, being careful to not slop a bunch of it onto the counter.

    3) Put bowl with soup into microwave oven.

    4) Set timer for 1:40 and push start button.

    5) Retrieve bowl of soup from microwave and set on table.

    6) Get spoon.

    7) Enjoy soup.

    Now that wasn't so hard, was it?

    Lol.

    Yep, I've been known to do that a time or two as well.

    That does look easy. I'll have to give it a shot one of these days.

    That's sounds really easy Jody.

    Most of the time, I use boxed cake mixes, and can frosting.

    Re: The Recipe Thread.

    Ok, here's my spaghetti recipe, also known as 'paghetti and meat bulbs'.

    In a deep-dish saucepan, cook up about a pound of hamburger. I usually get the lean stuff, 85/15 or even leaner.

    Making the hamburger into actual meatballs takes longer, so I usually just fry it up.

    Drain the grease off. If the meat was lean enough, this step can be skipped.

    Next, pour in a can of tomato sauce, 16 ounce.

    Also, a small can of tomato paste, 6 ounce.

    Now, all you experienced cooks feel free to laugh, but this is how I make it.......

    Next, dump in a bunch of sugar. 1/2 cup or so.....I don't know exactly, just part of a scoop.

    Mix it all together, and if the sides of the pan are steep enough it won't slosh out all over the stove.

    Kids love it, mainly because of the copious amount of sugar, I like the sugar because it counteracts the acidity of the tomato sauce and paste.

    That's right, no spices or anything like that, just plain and simple.

    Re: The Recipe Thread.

    Um... I've never thought of adding sugar... but tonight on Worst Cooks in America Bobby Flay had them add some sugar to cut the heat on one of the dishes... might have to try that...

    I watch Worst Cooks. I love that show, and Bobby Flay is great, as well as the lady too. My husband calls her Phyllis Diller.

    Re: The Recipe Thread.

    It's funny, my mom and dad have always added sugar to spaghetti, so naturally I did too. But you're right, I've never seen anyone else add it.

    My mom didn't make very good spaghetti. It was too soupy. I cheat, and use jar sauce. However, it is my grandson's favorite meal. I made some today.

    I was eating at a thai restaurant once and my soup was too hot (spicy). The woman at the next table suggested adding a little sugar to cut the heat. It worked perfectly.

    Turned out she was the owner of the restaurant and the chef.
