Nice Jan.  Simple, filling and provides several meals.

I had a steak and potatoes that I grilled over an open fire while camping. For dessert I have a glass of crown by the fire.

thanks Gregbo. Stealthy convinced me to start camping from his stories.  I’ve been lurking ever since.

While I had the pleasure of reading his posts, I unfortunately was unable have a conversation with him on the old site.  Here's a beer for Stealthy. 🍺

Tonight I am grabbing a box of Bachelor Chow.  I just need a quick meal and off to bed...

I love what's in that red box.  Made of real meat and potatoes, it tastes great with beer!

I am not sure how comfortable I would be testing out that product. And slurm sounds like it has the mascot on the label inside. Well, we just live once, pass me a slurm. 

This time, I made chicken with my personal mix of spices, that puts KFC to shame. As for beverage, a Michelob Ultra. I prefer Sam Adams, but that beer often feels like a meal in itself. 

If I were in a relationship with one of these demanding and ungrateful females of our generation, I would have been hearing nonstop fussing of how it is too spicy, she wanted wine, and the plates are heavy. Instead, my company included a puppy that was appreciative of what he was given and then laid on my foot and went to sleep, after finishing his food.

@ulynecro

That is a tribute to "Futurama" LOL.

Tonight I am making Chicken Ala King.  The main part is really a thinned gravy / thickened soup.

To make a cream soup (1 cup), the ratio is:

  • 1 Tbsp butter or oil
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1 cup milk

To make a gravy, the ratio is:

  • 2 Tbsp butter or oil
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 cup milk (or water, chicken stock, etc)

 

CHICKEN ALA KING by Old Buck  -  makes 4 servings

  • sweet onion, diced (or shredded with old style cheese shredder, my favorite)
  • 1 8oz. package portabella mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 large garlic cloves, crushed then chopped
  • 8 Tbsp butter
  • Olive oil
  • 6 Tbsp flour
  • 2 chicken breasts, diced
  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 2 Tbsp instant chicken broth (I use Orrington Farms)

 

I start with 2 Tbsp butter and a splash of olive oil to start sauteing the garlic, onions, and mushrooms.  (the remaining 6 Tbsp of butter is for the sauce)

Once the mix is browned nicely, add the chicken.

Once the chicken is cooked about 80% (barely pink inside) add the 6 tablespoons of remaining butter and powdered chicken broth.

When melted, add the flour.  Stir while cooking as it will turn into a paste and coat all of chicken & veggie mix.  Cook and stir until the paste turns slightly brown.  You are breaking down the proteins in the flour, creating a roue.  You may want to drizzle a little bit of olive oil to keep it a paste.

While the flour cooks warm the milk in the microwave for a minute or two, do not boil.

Once the flour has cooked a little and looks brown, start adding milk and stir constantly. 

Add the peas after pouring the milk.

Once the mixture starts boiling, turn down the heat and simmer for two minutes.

Turn the heat off and let the mixture cool, it will start to thicken as it cools.

Serve over rice, noodles, or homemade biscuits!

 

I do not cook with black pepper, but definitely add seasonings you like.  I prefer to add basil and oregano to my mix, but I kept the recipe basic in this post.  Add a sliced jalapeno with the onions to spice things up a bit!  If you like carrots, slice them thin and add with the chicken.

 

I use a similar base recipe for breakfast gravy, but I use breakfast sausage and bacon for the meat.  Cook the meat first, then use the grease to brown the onions and mushrooms.  I use a cup of coffee and the rest milk.

 

Enjoy experimenting in the kitchen!
