    Aiiyii! I left out a pretty important step in my fry bread recipe! I've added it in - Let RISE 1/2 hour before frying!

    If you have bacon grease or pork handy you can do a lot of tasty cooking with very simple ingredients. Pork has so much flavor. You have to be wary of the salt in some varieties as it can be overwhelming (had some issues with salt pork before.) Beef is bland by comparison (heresy, since I grew up in a beef producing region of the country. :frown: Was great when I was a boy and a picky eater.)

    I'm warming to lamb and goat for the same reason...I'm thinking the meat goat is the answer to raising livestock in the rougher stretches of the Ozarks; I see some near where I grew up when I travel through. And I love making spicy Mexican recipes...or Indian (as in East Indian) or North African/Mediterranean. Of course, venison has a lot of flavor, too...

    I want to thank all of you for making the Food Forum such a success. I am really glad it now stands on its own as a forum. I think this will make it easier for all of you to find. Please keep the posts and recipes coming. Again thanks so much.

    I want to share a verse about cooks that I feel should be the part of this forum.

    "We may live without poetry, music and art;
    We may live without conscience, and live without heart;
    We may live without friends; we may live without books;
    But civilized man cannot live without cooks."

    By Edward Robert Bulwer-Lytton.
