Makes 2-dozen cookies.
You better use some popcorn now - before they use it all to make gas for our RVs.
this recipe is not approved by anybody's wife!
OK, try this:
5-7 minutes later, you probably have something edible (and I think, tasty).
Make several. The wife will probably want one too.
Who says husbands can't cook.
We can do anything! (And sometimes it works the way it is supposed to.)
I like to cook. It’s fun – I just don’t like recipes!
I fully expect that someday one of my ‘inventions’ will result in a new form of plastic or a perpetual energy source. Still, I have about an 85% success rate. People usually tell me that my stuff tastes pretty good (until I tell what the ingredients are).
Here’s one for diabetics and weight watchers…
1 medium butternut squash
1. Cut it in half
2. Place it face down in the oven or microwave
3. Cook it until it is tender.
4. Set it aside to cool.
An 8 or 9 inch deep pie pan (I like the glass ones).
5. Spray the inside with non-stick spray.
6. Coat the inside with cornmeal.
7. Reserve the left-over cornmeal.
Remove the meat from the squash with a spoon and place it in a mixing bowl. Mix just a little bit.
Mix in 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon, dry ginger, and nutmeg
and the left over cornmeal.
You can also add a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice if you like it spicy.
Add “Splenda” sugar substitute to taste.
I start out with 8-12 packets, taste, and then add more until it tastes sweet enough.
THEN ADD 4 EXTRA PACKETS
– we’re not finished adding ingredients.
I like to cook. I;m not such a great chef - but I like to cook. People often like what I cook but my best friends have learned to not ask what's in it.
I once made barbecue beef for about 300 people at a festival in our community. Cooked it too long and scorched it.
The first few people asked what it was and I told them barbecued beef. They didn;t like it - threw part of their sandwiches away.
I put up a sign: "Brandied Barbecue". Thereafter EVERYBODY liked it. It was all eaten. They knew that scorched barbecue didn;t taste good, but "Brandied Barbecue", now that was an experience for the palet.
My next experiment will be to drain the juice off of two cans of pork-n-beans. Dice up a couple of green apples and a some sweet onions (Vidalia, etc.). Put it in a baking dish. Then I will stir it all up, sprinkle sliced almonds on top and bake it until the almonds are toasted.
It could work!
I’ve been told that my great-grandfather, Thompson Hopper, invented a way to use popcorn as a cereal. Don’t know what his secret was but here’s mine...
