this is the first time I ever used smoked turkey bacon - not bad though not as tasty as regular bacon

but it is low fat and about the same price as regular - will keep using it for a while

Gumbo a la Mike
Ingredients:
3 cups chicken stock,
3 cups sliced okra
3 Andouille sausage, sliced while still half frozen
3 Boneless skinless chicken breasts, BBQ’d or fried with Cajun spice.
2 Bell peppers, chopped
1-2 Jalapeños, seeded and chopped
1 Onion, large, chopped
2 Celery stocks, chopped
4-5 Garlic cloves, chopped
1 Tablespoon thyme
1 Tablespoon chilli powder
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 Teaspoon cayenne
1/2 Teaspoon cumin
½ cup of Roux = ½cup butter+½cup of flour
Preparation:
Sauté vegetables, slowly, don’t burn them you just want to meld those flavours. Also add the garlic last, never mind why, it’s just better, set aside. Cook chicken and slice bite size, the exact size should be determined by the size of your mouth, of course. Slice sausage. Measure spices into a bowl, don’t get to **** about the amounts just watch the cayenne... Prepare chicken stock. Got all that? OK, now you be ready.
In a large stock pot start making the Roux. Heat butter on med-high and stir in flour slowly, this takes constant attention and patience. The butter should be bubbling not boiling into a burnt mess.
When the Roux turns a lovely shade of golden brown add the stock, vegetables, meat and spices. Stir in and bring to a boil briefly then simmer for ½ an hour then dial that **** back. Check the spices, add what you think you need. Simmer it real slow like for minimum 1½ hours to 3 hours. Stir it once in a while, you’re not that busy.
Get crusty bread for which to wipe your bowl and fill yourself

Ya, it is a bit of an undertaking but boy is it good.
Rosemary chicken is a favourite of mine. I recently made an entire chicken like that.
Awesome really.
The recipe for that is dead simple. Stick a piece onion and some rosemary inside the chicken (and a piece of lemon if you got it). Then rub some olive oil on the chicken and rub in some rosemary and S&P all over. Bake in an open dish with a cup of water and an onion. Boom, yummy. You can make gravy too of course and it is divine.

YUM that sounds good eh1eh...I never make a whole chicken any more as I only eat the white meat...he will eat a bit of the dark but not enough....maybe though I could try a small chicken because it sounds wonderful...thanks

Left over Shrimp Creole on jasmine rice. Cheese cake, black berries, rasperries and blue berries with whipped cream. Can't wait for dinner.... may have to eat early.

It tastes better with prawns cause the meat is sweeter and their bigger, but we are out of spot prawns and our local...supplier is in the process of moving.

Yorkshire pudding and roast beef gravy are my favouritest of all meals. There is no better delivery system for gravy then yorkshire pudding and there is no better meat for making gravey then roast beast.
