    gbrown replied to a thread Dutch Oven Help in Cookin' Recipe's
    I was always told 2 X diameter of Dutch oven, less 3 as MT Gianni says for 350 degrees. Using fire coals, I make a good fire, have a big bed of coals, set oven on about 1/3 of them and place 2/3's on top. More on top aids the browning effect to...

    Thank you, MaryB for the recipe/suggestion. I'll give it a try. Little cabbages always taste pretty bitter to me.

    Sadly, you are correct that some areas don't have great opportunities. Many places in Tx don't. Many times its a choice between family and friends and opportunities. Hard choice, but one that has to be made. My oldest grandson is a young CPA for...

    There is a lot to be said for a college degree, if it is in the right career path. Engineer, doctor, nurse, business administration, accounting, etc. Just get a liberal arts degree or something like art or music and the going gets tough. Of...

    Yeah, my buddy always said, with enough cheese on it, you can get a kid to eat anything. He fed his kids vegetables all the time, with the veggies swimming in cheese. Me, I was raised on veggies and love them. Especially cabbage. Only veggie I...

    gbrown replied to a thread Be careful please in Our Town
    Thanks for bringing this up. IMHO, really important for all of us. In the military, we had risk assessment procedures. Whenever planning a mission, all risks were identified, a value was given to them, i.e., 4, little or none, 1, very...

    I was always told that slumgullion was a soupy stew, made up of any leftovers available. Just clean the fridge. My buddy's wife used to have a big plastic container in the freezer, and whatever meat or vegetables were left over from a meal were...

    I have this very die and am now swageing hundreds of bullets in order to feed my .40's for IDPA shoots. Very nice set up and it enables me to mass produce bullets for plinking with 1 pull of the handle on my press. If I so choose (and I often do)...

    gbrown replied to a thread Pre 64 Winchesters in Our Town
    I have 2 Winchesters in 30/06. One that was made in 1954 and my Dad bought it a year later in Colorado to hunt elk. Then a Post 64 I bought a couple of years back. I think the serial # shows it to be early, like during '64. Can't remember for...

    Got worried the other day, as I have already eaten 3/4 of a pint of this. I could eat it on ice cream! Had it on cabbage, broccoli, moussaka, eggs and some more. Got some more green tomatoes and tomitilla and got after it. Wow. This is good,...

    Most of the articles I've seen about the Winchester suggest the name change, from 30 WCF to 30-30 came around 1950. Still, I've seen nothing really definitive about it. About the same time, Winchester changed a couple of other caliber names, IIRC,...

    I'm not sure of all this, as I hear and see thoughts which seem logical, but apparently are based on interpretation of scripture. I have always been raised, and believe that there is not big sin or little sin--it's sin. It is we humans, saddening...

    gbrown replied to a thread Cabbage steaks in Cookin' Recipe's
    Cabbage rules! (In my house, anyway) Might think about searing them on a hot grill or in a cast iron skillet before seasoning and wrapping them. I'm not someone who likes veggies taste hidden by cheese, so I'd leave that off, just my taste. Good...

    OMG! I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Tears in my eyes! Thanks for the post. Reminds me of a time when I was about 13 or 14 and made some homemade black powder with sulphur, charcoal, and other things I can't remember. Put it in an...
