    I tried that brand, pretty good straight out of the can. I beer battered and deep fried some for lunch along with some mussels. (Just because LOL) The fish is pretty good but the mussels are great.[​IMG]

    I braised a whole 99¢ pork butt to bring in this new year. Lightly browned, then slow simmered in a half gallon of Roma maters, bell peppers, cayenne, onion, garlic, bay leaves and a dash of oregano salt and black pepper.

    4 1/2 hours later it was fall off the bone tender, and the braising sauce thick as gravy. It was served with mustard greens and turnips, mashed Pontiac taters smothered in the sauce, and a cornbread pone made from freshly ground cornmeal!

    Good start to the new year. A week's worth of country ham and cheese biscuits. 20200101ggg_220518-980x2016.jpg

    Is a chili bun even a thing anywhere but eastern KY? I know when I was a kid every Tasty Treet had chili dogs and chili buns on the menu, but I've not seen them elsewhere.
    Anyway..

    Chili bun and lard fried Kennebec chips for lunch today.

    My church growing up in Barbourville had a Xmas Bazaar put on by ladies in the church. The lunch menu featured my families chili bun recipe. About the whole court square business community (weren't no big city) would show up for that lunch.

    That's about the only way I'll buy beef these days. Nothing tastes better than half price!
