Rock N Roll Sushi

This entry was posted in Foods, General Musings, Health & Food by Snowfoxx on

While awaiting a very long day of waiting for Cleave to get through a root canal up in Dothan, I craved some Japanese food. Due to his allergy to GMO corn, Japanese cuisine is just about the only kind he can eat when going out, and Dothan has its fair share of these kinds of places. It was a day of wait, wait, wait…. Fox News and puzzle video games that were much more interesting than Fox News, even if they were pretty much Candy Crush clones with a bit more challenge to them.

After getting the procedure done, we headed to Pet Smart to get some catnip and cat grass plants for our little calico stoners, Mouse and Shelley, and decided to try out Rock N Roll Sushi. I was just amazed by this place! It featured two of my favorite things, classic rock and alternative music and sushi! The walls were decorated with paintings and photos of great bands and artists from the 60s thru 80s of rock, and featured a black, red, silver and white decor that is the perfect atmosphere for such offerings.

Mead Recipes For Your Enjoyment

The following is from a very VERY old site I used to have, Celtic Voice, not up anymore. It shows 2 of my recipes for the alcoholic beverage known as mead, or honey wine. I am sure those in the SCA will remember some of this.

Peanut Butter Candy

Recipes_From_The_FridgeWhile making a standard Southern version of No-Bake Cookies, Cleave tried the originals, and found at first he didn’t care for them because of the oats in them, but changed his mind after the second day. The he couldn’t help himself. He then suggested I try making them with some other kinds of cereals. So I tried toasted oat O’s, then he suggested we just don’t use any grains at all, and set them in a 9 x 13 pan and cut them like fudge. Just WOW! Using E.S.P (Experimentation, Sensibility, and Practicality), we came up with an amazing candy that was an instant hit! Hope this works out for you as well as it did for me.

Peanut Butter Candy

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup peanut butter

Bring sugar, milk, and butter to a boil on medium heat. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add vanilla extract and peanut butter. Mix well. Pour into parchment lined 9 x 13 pan. Will set quickly. Cut into 1-inch squares when set.

Rho’s Sausage Casserole

This entry was posted in Foods, General Musings, Health & Food by Snowfoxx on

Recipes_From_The_FridgeI was looking for a new kind of dish to make for a wintry night, and had limited choices as to what to use for my main ingredient. Chicken and pork chops were frozen, but then i remembered that I had purchased some fresh market made sausage, great stuff, only four ingredients, pork, salt, pepper, and fennel! from Brickyard Market earlier that week, and it was still there, unopened, and soon the Taste Of Home casserole book was set aside for my own creation….

1 lb fresh sausage
1 cup macaroni
1 large carrot
1 cup broccoli
1 cup cauliflower
1 cup shredded cabbage
1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp flour
water
1/2 cup sour cream
salt, pepper, garlic powder
1/2 shredded Colby jack cheese.

preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook sausage in skillet or wok till done, prepare macaroni according to directions on package. Stir fry carrots, broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower and spices into sausage. Mix, flour, milk, and water as for making a gravy, add to sausage and vegetable mix until thickened, then add sour cream. Add cooked and drained macaroni to sausage mix, mix well, and transfer to greased 9×13 pan. Top with shredded cheese, then bake for 1/2 hour.

Maple Blondie – A coffee cocktail

This entry was posted in Foods, General Musings, Health & Food by Snowfoxx on

Recipes_From_The_FridgeWell, I’m sure we’ve all felt the clipper this week, but here is something sweet and warm from Musings to help you heat up this weekend

Maple Blondie

8oz hot coffee
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp sugar
Dash of vanilla extract
2 tsp half and half
1 shot of silver rum

How to mix this is very simple. You will first pour the half and half into the mug then add the maple, the vanilla, and the sugar to the half and half. Pour half the coffee you are going to use into the mix, the add your rum, and then stir in to rest of the coffee. A simpler recipe there could not be for a cold winter’s day or any day of the year!
