Talking Oyster Stew

Okay, maybe we should do a new thread for this, but here is another serious recipe.
1 pint select oysters
2or3 slices bacon
Two stalks celery (diced)
Two large yellow onions (diced)
Two potatoes (sliced)
1 tsp. Tapioca
2 qts. milk
1/2 lb. butter


Start milk heating in double boiler (when hot add Tapoica)(thickener)
add potatoes
Fry bacon in frying pan and set aside. (pour off but save excess grease)
fry celery, onion in bacon grease (set aside)
Add some of bacon grease back to frying pan
heat oysters in bacon grease til gils start to curl.
Remove oysters from bacon grease and add to milk along with celery, onion and then crumble bacon over mixture.
add butter on top of mixture and let it melt.

Took this to a party during my single days thinking only the guys would eat it. Wrong!! Women found it and ate all 2 gallons of it. It's GOOD!!

Never been able to eat the stuff!

I haven't touched it since then... Yuck!

When I was an infant and just learning to eat solid food, my mom said I would reach for some of her sandwich and spit it back out if it had mayo on it but eat it if it didn't. I have never been able to keep it down. Once when McD's was trying out a new marketing idea with an "adult" menu they had this wonderful grilled sandwich on a kyser bun. I always ordered it plain and enjoyed it; one day I forgot to say plain and got it with their secret sauce and decided to eat it rather than turn around and go back. Fifteen minutes later I thought I was going to have to pull off the road because I was so sick! The rest of the day I had stomach cramps and was nauseous. I can't even eat aioli or hollandaise.

I have met several people to have the same aversion to mayo that I have. A few in college and a couple in my current Sunday School class. One of my former bosses didn't like it much but would eat it in small quantities. To me it is just too greasy and tart. Mostly it is just gross. It even smells gross. I wish it wasn't because there are a lot of foods I think would be good if I could handel the mayonnaise.

My wife and I will mix sour cream and mustard to substitute for mayo in any recipe that sounds like something I would like to try. One of my favorite TV chefs is Paula Deen and she uses mayo in just about everything she cooks. She even put it in one of her soup recipes: BLT soup! Another of my favorite TV chefs made a wonderful suggestion: substitute plain yogurt for an equal measure of mayo in recipes. It works for me.

Cook your bananna...

Here is a good English recipe courtesy of "Boozy Nana" that sounds good for the campfire.....

Ingredients

1 banana per person
Rum
Brown sugar
Cream


Cooking Instructions

1) Bung the bananas on a BBQ whilst still in their skins,
2) When they have turned black remove them from the BBQ,
3) Carefully remove from the skins,
4) Cut in chunks and pour on rum (as much as you like!),
5) Top with brown sugar then add cream.
Calorie content horrific but who cares your camping!

German Pizza

I am adding our favorite camping meal here. My wife calls it German Pizza. I am not sure why, but it is a great one pan meal that you can cook on the stove or over a fire. It is great cold too!

Ingedients

Cooking oil
4 medium size potatos
1 large yellow onion
2 Peppers (you pick the color)
1 package of fresh mushrooms
1 can of Spam
6 eggs
6 oz cheddar cheese

Instructions

Peel (if required) and slice the potatos, onion, peppers, mushrooms (I buy them sliced) and spam (strips 1/2" wide).
Give the dogs a small strip of spam (they love it!).
Place a small amount of oil in the fry pan.
Make a layer of potato, onion, pepper, mushroom and spam in the pan.
Continue with the same layers untill the pan fills (3 layers).
Cover and cook over a low heat. High heat will burn the bottom potatos!
Check untill the potatos are cooked.
Scramble the eggs and pour over the top.
Cover and cook untill the eggs have stiffened.
Grade the cheese and spread over the top.
Cover and cook untill the cheese has melted.
Remove from heat and serve.

Hot Dog Octopii

I was watching the food channel the other night and just about fell out... they actually have a plastic gizmo that you can put a hotdog into then slip an eight sided slicer over and make real 8 legged octopuses (octopii, who cares). The program was called "Ham on the Street"

Trailer trash forever!

Anyone heard of Spam Jerky?

Simply cut Spam into thin strips. Season with black pepper and hot sauce.

Fire up the smoker and smoke/dry them for a couple of hours.

MMMMM good!!

Speaking of mayo, my staple lunch through grade school was tuna fish sandwiches. Tuna from a can mixed with mayo on white bread.

Why fire up the smoker when you have a perfectly good, serviceable, unit under the hood of your tow vehicle or the dog house of the motor home. Seriously folks we are forgetting a whole chapter of trash cuisine most fitting for we of the RV set. The cuisine of which I speak is that which can be cooked, or smoked, on your engine or exhaust while you drive. Take that spam recipe for example. You have 5 hours to place it on the smoker. But let's say that your exhaust has a small leak, simply tape the spam jerky over the leak and after 5 hours of driving, voila Spam jerky. You will also discover a special flavor not to be found in a normal charcoal or wood fired smoker. this flavor is one only we RVers can impart to a recipe thus making it a real trailer trash meal.
