The hamburger looks kind of old. It looks edible though.

My $23 in food stamps was gone a few days after I got it.

But when I read your dish to the Landlady, she said she was going to emulate you, NJCher! I’m looking forward to it!

We’re going to our neighbor’s for dinner and all I know is we’re bringing red wine and Brie.

6. Pozole soup

Made with chicken bone broth but there’s no meat. Lotsa hominy and I added a sweet potato, lotsa garlic and onions. And every Mexican spice I own. Broth tastes good. It’s simmering. Will have topped with lime zest cilantro and sour cream. Corn chips on the side.

both put radishes on top of theirs.

It is hard to beat a good rich chicken stock or any well made stock actually

I have to laugh when I see "bone broth". We made bone broth before it was cool. What else are you going to do with that damn chicken or turkey carcass? If I wanted to make it and sell it I could make a killing. That stuff is NOT cheap

I like to roast beef bones a bit in the oven before making stock with them

tender and nice! Mashed potatoes and gravy, some leftover coleslaw, and chopped cucumber with fresh mint in a mixture of sour cream and buttermilk (since I didn't have any yogurt). The wine was a Hungarian Tokaji Furmint wine, dry but fruity.

Whatever it is, it sounds very good. Roast chicken regardless of method is hard to beat

by taking out the backbone. It makes it easier to get the dark and white meat done at the same time. Here's a video that shows how to do it: https://youtube.com/shorts/2Ewjt5Xmj50?si=_1vZNcjx0jlL_Z6b There are lots of recipes, many with videos too - just google spatchcock.

I also learned how to completely debone a chicken watching her
Did it once to see if I could actually pull it off

It was yummy.
Served it over white fluffy rice.
I put tomatoes in it, which are optional.

The flavor would be a bit different but I bet they would be good.

This is one of my favorite Indian dishes .
