Same.I wish my wife was as big a fan of mushrooms as I am. She’ll eat them but it’s not one of her top 10 foods or I’d cook with them a lot more often. That recipe looks simple and tasty.
Love the article on the history. Growing up in Virginia, I would declare the origin should never be in doubt!Could not get to sleep last night - it happens to me occasionally. So got up and decided to stay home today and work Saturday instead. Blessed with a cool boss who lets me do what I want
Wife works today and all weekend so decided to do a batch of Brunswick Stew. It's not a summer dish but nobody tells me what to do! The origins of Brunswick Stew are in dispute, as you can read HERE if you are interested. But basically, here in the Carolina's, it entails combining smoked chicken and pulled pork with some chicken stock. lima beans, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, and Worcestershire and hot sauce and slow cooking for hours until it is a thick soup.
It's one of those dishes you spend a day making and then spend a week eating. I love recipes like that where a ton of love goes into them. I don't know when it'll be ready since I just threw some small chickens and a Boston butt on the smoker. But I know it will be good.
Tbh I ate some squirrel gumbo before. At least my friend who cooked it said it was squirrel...You are likely correct - only makes sense since the origins are likely British to begin with. When I told my daughter what I was making she asked ‘Squirrel?’. Not this time honey. But you know, here on NC we use what’s available. Squirrel, possum, Democrats…
