> I don't use cheese on my burgers

As a kid we always had hamburgers (sans cheese)
I'll never forget my first cheeseburger
(also I think my first trip through a drive-thru)
An epitome ! (not unlike my first rare steak)
As for M & C ..... Strong cheddar, jack, and some
chopped onion done right, and I can brag about it

This is funny, same story here. Why and where are we going to put this new gadget. Wings every week now. My wife's favorite is the Headbanger's Kitchen tandoori wings. YouTube Bill should like this guy.

Low fat pan shepards pie.

In deep frying pan with lid

mince two cloves garlic and one small onion
saute garlic and half onion in splash olive oil.
add two pounds ground turkey, remainder of onion, a pinch of sage, 1/4 teaspoon thyme and 1/4 teaspoon cummin. cook mix, stiring until fully cooked. Add drained can sliced or diced carrots and stir. Top with one pound package frozen broccoli florettes.

Thouroughly Mix three cups flour, 3 table spoons shortening or olive oil, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt and 3 teaspoons baking powder. Add liquid from carrots and just enough water to make wet sticky dough.

Spread dough mix atop mix in pan. reduce heat to lowest and cover pan.
(Sprinkle top with parsley flakes and paprika for color)

Cooking time will vary with total moisture, but by average around 40 minutes. Meal is ready when knife or toothpick comes out clean when poked in top biscuit mix.

Variations: vegetables of choice, grated cheese of choice. Works well with parmisan, asiago, gouda etc. Some like adding creme of mushroom soup or subbing mashed potatoes for biscut mix.

This is a variation of a dish my mother used to make using hamburger.... which was certainly NOT low fat.

The biscuit topping is a wetter version of cowboy biscuits she learned from mother in law in the 1940s. Basic rule: to each cup of flour add 1 tab sugar, 1 tab shortening, 1/2 t salt and 1 t baking powder. ~1/2 cup water. Cut shortening into flour, add sugar, salt and baking powder. Add wster while mixing to make sticky drop biscuits. Preheat oven to 375f. Oil còoking sheet and drop 3-4 tablespoon lumps of dough on sheet. Bske 30-35 minutes until peaks brown. Kids love them in winter with hot chocolate.

Yeah, I know I'm a barbarian....
Doc

A nice meal with friends tonight and it was my turn to cook. Sorry no pics.

Fennel gazpacho:

2 cucumber, a dozen tomatoes, 2 fennel heads, 2 onions, olive oil, vinegar, powdered fennel seeds, salt/pepper, some fresh flat parsley. The fennel and onions are first roasted in a pan, the tomatoes/cucumbers blended, then all the vegetables/spices brought together in a pot (with a pair of cups of water) to a boil for 15 min and then back to the blender. The mix is then passed through a sieve. In the fridge for 3 hours and then a small correction with vinegar and spices.

Fish and green vegetables salad:

Sear little pieces of fish (cod and salmon for me) in sesame oil with some zaatar. Deglaze with some soya sauce and reserve (let the soya sauce drip away).
Roast in a pan a melange of green vegetables (I cheat and use precut mix frozen bags): brocoli, beans, peas, etc. until slightly crunchy. Reserve. Do the same for a good amount of edamame (well roasted).
Bring together in a big bowl some roma salad chopped in big pieces, some hard boiled eggs and the vegetables. Add some sauce (anchovies, cream, a bit of mustard and some soya sauce) and toss. Drop on top the fish and serve cold.
I added as a side very small potatoes roasted whole in the oven.

The dessert was a sticky toffee pudding. To completely destroy any illusion of an healthy meal.

Count yourself lucky.

Nowadays it can be bought at some supermarkets here, wholesale stores, Chinese/Asian shops. :

- Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening 453g - Turks, Marokkaans
- Makro Nederland
- All Vegetable Shortening 1360 gr Crisco - Toko 4 All
- Antilliaanse Toko Crisco All Vegetable Shortening 454gr Bestellen voor €4.97 in Nederland

Still not cheap stuff, but at least a third less costly compared to the early days of Crisco availibity in this country. First regular stores that sold Crisco were baking supplies shops, sold at a premium.

Before the web order days, the single option for me to authentically prepare a recipe that contained Crisco, was to get a can at gay toy shops in A'dam.
(I did not tell the gents at the store that it was for cooking purposes only)

I learned that Crisco is excellent for seasoning BBQ tools and anything cast iron

Not sure that's a healthy choice, afaig Crisco over the last decade contains very little trans fats (partially hydrogenated oil), lard is lard.

(Vegan gays may still prefer Crisco)

Shepards pie with turkey!!! What kind of sheep herders use turkey? (Sounds like a nice substitute, mutton really is not a meat I am fond of.)

My wife recalls getting the goats and sheep down from the hills of Nanticoke PA before a storm -- her aunt had a farm up there -- I guess an old sheep is "mutton".

Yes, but here you are allowed to call it lamb. I made a batch of Greek style lamb shanks tonight I'll take them over a prime rib eye any day. In Chicago there is a Greek restaurant that gets mutton shanks I wish they were more available retail.
