Interesting menu choices. I'm not a big turkey fan either but have to do it traditional at least once a year. The last of it goes in the soup pot tonight

There must be a thousand pasta shapes! I ran into some Coriandoli which I hadn't seen before so I made it into a pasta salad with mozzarella cheese, banana peppers, turkey breast, green and black olives, bell peppers, artichoke hearts, grape tomatoes, fresh basil, and Italian salad dressing.

Love that Italian pasta and your ham bone soup, although I dont think I have ever made that, it sure sounds good.

looks good Mike, But when you post things like Pćo de Queijo? a link to what the heck that is may save us the time of looking it up

Did you use tapioca flour? and what cheese did you end up using.

The Pćo de Queijo sounds good, like the cheesy rolls at Red Lobster.
They do have a Red lobster cheesy roll mix in the store.

oddly enough a guy I went to high school with and his wife are opening a Brazilian restaurant and said it would serve "Brazilian food" and we were like "What is Brazilian food"
Pćo de Queijo Brazilian cheesy rolls......

You're right Skip, I could have added a link. I did use tapioca starch (aka Cassava, Yuca, Medioc or Mandioca) but it was in a mix I bought from Amazon. The mix has some cheese solids in it but calls for more cheese, I used Parmesan cheese because I was trying to get rid of it and it worked out well. They are very light, not quite as light as an unfilled cream puff

I do find myself looking up a lot of the things you post as they are new to me.
Always like learning new food things.

We cook more home cooked (American home) or diner type foods.
Many of the more exotic ethnic foods at times have ing we don't care for like curry
or juniper berry's ect.

But we went to Mexico and had fries at a McDonald's that were cooked in animal fat and they were the best fries we ever had!
So we love Mexican food and fries.

At times we do like fake American versions of ethnic cooking.

Kinda like tiki, the fake American version of Polynesia / Hawaii.

Skip, Concerning the McD's fries...all USA Micky D's used beef tallow for their fries until a wacky 1 person health crusade stopped them in the early 90's. You can still buy beef tallow...here--on Amazon.

I think a lot of the Mexican restaurants in the area still use pork lard for cooking (we are 15 miles from the border) and it has a lot more flavor than the bland vegetable oil. I can see that a steady diet of lard probably wouldn't be so good for you though.

"a steady diet of lard probably wouldn't be so good for you though.'

That may be the reason that Amish lady's tend to be heavy.
This is what makes going to Der Dutchman so great I am not the largest person in the room in fact they make me look small by comparison.

I find beef tallow and pork fat in the stores here, Pork lard is great for pie crusts they say.
Going to make one some day.

I consider that a compliment, you seem to have a pretty rounded food knowledge John.

Nothing exotic here - Tuscan Chicken and Balsalmic Snow Peas with Mushrooms and Peppers. No pasta or rice, still trying to avoid the carbs.

Thanks Mike.

I cannot imagine not being able to cook.
The pre made food at the stores is most times ok at best even restaurants don't have food that is that good many times.

We have to eat may as well find out how to make good food we like.

Barney Fyfe put it best....
"I like good food, I'll take good food over bad food any day, Why eat bad food when you can have good food, That's what I always say"

Learned to cook one day when my mom called the restaurant and told me to make the bean soup I had never made bean soup so she told me how over the phone.
So I had no choice.

"I'm not a big turkey fan either"

Blasphemy!

Yay Turkey!

Cranberry jelly mold.
Remember when Jell-O was though of as a salad.
I'm late, this was Thanksgiving.
