A friend and I are doing corned beef and cabbage tonight. We just hope that the stores aren't all sold out of corned beef, seeing as how we are buying it at the last minute.

Haha, I'm doing corned beef and cabbage as well!

i think 90% of North America is doing corn beef and cabbage today

speaking of which, ill have a great lucnh tomorrow! corned beef sandwichs! (that is if i dont eat it all tonight! :oops:

I think most of North America goes out boozing instead. I bet up in New England though there are a lot more corned-beefers (down here in the south it's all about getting drunk off green dyed beer).

I'm going to a party tomorrow that needs people to bring snacks, they already have desserts.
So I was wanting to make an appetizer type thing but can't think of anything good (I'm not very good at coming up with appetizers anyways).

It would have to be something that can be properly served at room temperature and easy to serve (individual servings would be nice). I don't want to make cheese dip.

Crackers, lunch meat slices, and or cheese, or anything veggie with ranch sauce.

Hummus, tabbouleh and pita - should be easy enough to buy and bring
Guacamole, salsa and chips - again, easy to pick up at the store or make your own
I make a pretty awesome black bean dip - just black beans, garlic, cumin and olive oil thrown in a food processor and then topped with feta to serve
Bruschetta is always yummy
You could also consider making a pasta salad



I recently fell in love with this cooking website:
http://www.saveur.com/

Nice ingredients but often simple preparations. You might find inspirations there.

I guess what I meant by "I don't want to do cheese dip" is I don't want to do ____ + crackers. :( I love meat and cheese platters but I don't feel like doing that.
It's not a high class party or anything. It's just an anime club party, a "free food" university event. I think meat and cheese platter is in the right direction, but something a bit nicer.

What about spirals? I've never made them before and everyone loves cream cheese.
I am also now entertaining the idea of mini meat pies, I like this idea...


I might try making this for Vanifae some time :D

I almost did bacon wrapped hot dogs covered in brown sugar, but those are really not good if they aren't warm :(

Haha, nothing super high. Going for a good mix of quality and quantity, leaning towards quantity.
I normally do cake balls for these things (make a cake, crumble it up, mix with frosting, make small balls, refrigerate, melt chocolate, dip in chocolate, refrigerate again, win), so about that much effort. Meat pies would be like the meat equivalent, make meat with seasonings and vegetables, shape crusts, put meat filling in crusts, fold over, bake, win. Meat pies are a lot better warm though, but room temperature is tasty too, but this might be because I just love meat pies...

I'm on some sort of a pie high right now.
The meat pies last week were amazing, I did them with vegetables (carrots, potatoes, peppers, onions), cheese, and beef. I ended up having to make my own crust since Walmart didn't have any rolled crust for some reason. It ended up being a ton more work than I wanted to do, but it was worth it. Because I had so much filling (5 lbs of beef) and relatively little crust (8 pie crusts :V) I ended up making miniature meat pies using a cupcake sheet. These were adorable and great (just filled the cupcake thing with some crust, put filling in there, baked).

I'm making a chicken pot pie right now, I'll edit this later with how it turns out. I've never made one before, I just kind of cooked chicken, threw it in, added cream of celery soup and vegetables, covered it, and it's baking now. If it comes out tasty that would be wonderful because everything in it is really healthy (chicken breasts, vegetables, fat free condensed soup) except for the pie crust.
Edit: Pretty healthy chicken pot pie turned out amazing. Make sure to season it, I used seasoned breadcrumbs and I think that gave it a good flavor, but the cream of celery and vegetables give it a good flavor too.

Bacon Explosion. It might just end you, but it's worth the risk. Google it. :)


I have made this and It is Delicious. My wife, myself and a Buddy of mine did it last summer. Very tasty. we had 2 pieces of it each, about 1" thick per. So about the size of a Fillet Mignon. Everything was fine until we each finished our last bite. Bacon Hangover... I had to go lay down. I am glad the couch was near buy.

I suggest everyone do it at least once. Seeing bacon basically woven into a textile still has not lost its novelty to me.

The shapes of those remind me enough of arterial walls that I think I'd hesitate to bite into one. :)

I've been trying to learn more things that can be cooked over and open fire. We went camping last weekend, and will be going again next weekend.

I used the camp stove for lunch - Brats, baked beans and potato salad. I would have done the brats over the fire but we didn't want to make one just for that.

For dinner I did everything on the fire. I put asparagus, olive oil and seasoning in a packet of foil and placed it on a rock next to the fire. Eventually I moved it directly onto the hot coals. I soaked corn in the husk in water and then placed those directly on the coals as well. That came out good, but I could have let them cook longer. I also made steak, which came out ok. The grill-type thing that you could swing over the fire was really rusty and scary looking so I improvised by placing the steaks on a disposable pizza pan. It worked well enough but it prevented the steak from really getting seared. I'll have to tweak that a bit next time.


Does anyone have any tried and true camping recipes they'd recommend? We park the car at the site so luckily we don't have to haul everything around with us.

My Wife likes wiggly bacon too. Is it a Female thing? I could go into some psycho Babble about Frued, and how your desire for limp bacon blah blah blah... leaves me concern for Aergis.
Anyone care to share Bacon Preference?
I prefer Crispy, but will take it anyway I can get it other wise. Super Thick Cut on the BBQ is exquisite too.
