OOHH! Even after living 19 years in south Texas, I have never made tamales. That could be fun to try.

I usually season ( we like spicy ) leftover pork ( shredded) then freeze to make tamales at a later date.

What to do with leftover roast?

I made a pork (we don't  eat beef) roast and have a lot left over. I usually make a salad type thing with chopped roast, onions, celery and mustard/mayonnaise. I also could cut it up and make a soup or something. Basically I am uninspired....need ideas.

Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

1 cup dried cranberries hot water, enough to cover the cranberries 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or sea salt 3 cups old-fashioned oats 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

How to Make It
Step 1
Soak the cranberries in the hot water for at least 15 minutes. Set aside.

Step 2
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the oats. Set aside.

Step 3
In a mixer, beat together the butter and brown sugar until well combined, about 1 minute. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined. Drain the cranberries and stir them into the batter. Chill the dough for at least 1 hour or up to overnight (the dough can also be pre-scooped and frozen for future use).

Step 4
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a couple sheet pans with parchment paper. Scoop the heaping tablespoon sized portions of the dough onto the lined sheet pans, spacing them about 1 1/2-inches apart.

Step 5
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned. Let them cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Been raining here in the woods of Washington State all week. Got a roof over our heads, house is warm and bellies full. Who could ask for anything more other than Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Welcome Mimi58. Glad to see you joined us.

The rain finally stopped for a few days. Thank goodness. My dog has cabin fever and keeps bringing me different toys to play with. I have played tug of war and throw the ball down the hall over and over. Maybe he can run in the yard soon.

Official Chili Recipe from TBD. Prunella Farquar's Texas Chili
2 lbs lean beef, chunked
1 lb pork, chunked
1/2 tsp ground cumin seed
2 onions chopped
7 cloves of garlic
4-6 Tabs bacon fat
2 cups mighty fine beef stock
1 cup chopped canned tomatoes
6 -10 Tabs of chili powder (However hot you like it)
2 Tabs flour
1 bay leaf
1 tsp dried basil
In heavy chili pot, brown the meat, onions and garlic in hot bacon fat. Add boiling beef stock and tomatoes and bring again to a boil. Cover and simmer very gently for about an hour. Blend chili powder and flour in a little hot liquid from the pot and then add this back to the pot along with the remaining seasonings. Continue gentle simmering until the meat is tender and the chili thickened.
You may want to keep your beer ice cold and have it handy.
