Re: Mouse Fun

Anyone want to loan me their cat????? We don't have a cat, MEF, but we would be happy to lend you our dog. MrBrown says that she would go after it and she might get it in the same way she goes after flies against the window. He says that she would understand that it's part of her job as Protector o...

What do you call this?

My son, the BrownBoy, was waiting (and waiting and waiting and waiting) for us to get out to the car so we could get to where we were going. To make us go faster, he rang the doorbell and ran off. MrBrown asked who was at the door and I said, "no one, it was the BrownBoy playing [spoiler]Knock ...

Yes, the Mexican nut cookie dough does look similar to our crescent dough recipe. What kind of nuts do you use in them? I use a mix of almonds and pecans. Do you use coloured sugar for the festive ones? I make trees, both large (2 1/2 inch) and small (1 inch), so I can differentiate between the sug...

Spicy sugar cookies sound good. What kind of spices? It's a basic sugar cookie recipe with added spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and a pinch of cloves (the recipe calls for allspice but I don't have any). They're lovely and crisp and a very light brown colour. What a coincidence! The domestic goddess ha...

Re: Deep Fried Mars Bar

Well, I DID IT! I made battered deep fried Mars Bar thingies - they were great! The batter (flour & cornmeal with a bit of baking soda & milk) was light and crisp and the middle was just the right meltiness. 1 bar made about 6 or 7 of these delights; the rest of the batter made great crepes...

Ginger shortbread cookies and a microplane

:whee: Today I got to use my brand new microplane to grate the fresh ginger to make Ginger Shortbread cookies. I'm going to a cookie party in a couple of weeks and decided that while the Spicy Sugar Cookies in my Canadian Living magazine a couple of years ago were delicious, I think the ginger short...

Re: Mars Bars En Croute

I'm just curious, Mrs. Brown - have you ever tried a Mars bar En Croute? I mean, Mars bars taste good, right? OK, so, if it was served (say a small portion) like cannoli , or with a filo covering - wouldn't that tempt you? Why call this "vile"? A Mars bar en croute would probably be not a...

Horrible Food (and I use the term lightly)

CAM mentioned that people were bringing macaroni salads and marshmallow salads to a large group gathering. I've always wondered who actually eats those things and why people bring them. The people who bring them to potlucks must feel bad when they bring something that they think is delicious and nob...

But do you think it's too big in comparison to the others? :lalala: :stomp: :jump: :whee: No, it's a pig. Pigs are larger. Oh, but wait, they aren't larger than a cow. Hmmm.

food for large crowds

MrBrown has been on a bean kick for the last few weeks. I discovered the easiest recipe for baked beans that's also delicious and very filling (and cheap). It's in :arrow: More Easy Beans by Trish Ross and Jacquie Trafford. :bravo: Mexican Baked Beans :bravo: 1 tbsp oil 1 med onion, chopped 1 (I use...

We still feel quite smug

We didn't actually have to change the belt. When MrBrown looked underneath the drum, he discovered that the belt was off the pulley and that was what was causing the problem. We were glad that we didn't have to put a new belt on because that looked like it might be hard. We still felt smug for havin...

The internet is an amazing place

:jump: :jump: :jump: :jump: :jump: Well, aren't we clever. This morning the dryer started making a terrible sound. The BrownBoy turned it off and came to get me. I turned it on and then turned it off in that way that helpless technophobes do when they don't know what to do and then I called MrBrown....
