I got a good price on a big thick london broil.
With my grandmother it's any kind of berries and cream.
You are so right, Misty, about the dishes connecting you to a person.
OMG, you bring back the memory of meals when we were on Relief....
FYI for all you youngsters, RELIEF was an early version of welfare.
Hey, I remember when I had 5 little kids and I would have been happy to have some trotters in the pan but we ended up with boxed mac and cheese...I never could stand that stuff and now I won't let it in the house......lol
My mom used to bake bread and my dad was the milk man so we had butter...but she would make white gravy and we would have bread butter with white gravy for supper.. I still think of the times when we had meatless meals....but then we also had canned veggies, everyone had a garden back then.....
To this day Del would rather have bread and gravy than potatoes and gravy....
Oh yes, I also take a knife to big cuts of meat.
I knew I shouldn't have come in here before lunch......lol
If someone dumped a bunch of thick mean here London broil would only be one of the things to do with it.
There is no reason just because it is thick you can't take a knife to it....
I was in the store the other day and they had a whole pork tenderloin....very cheap. I got it out today, I am going to cut a couple pieces for marinated fried and then put in the oven chop type supper with mashed potatoes.
Then I can have a roast out of part of it, I might cube some for hash in the morning, Maybe make some soup out of part of it....I don't know I just love getting something that I can cook so many different ways. For the 2 of us I will proably have at the very least 6 meals.....that is unless company comes....lol....
Even though they say on tv that skirt beef or flat iron steak is very cheap, around here it is not. And most people in this part of the country wouldn't even have eaten it if it hadn't been for Food Network...isn't that strange?
I am not a fan of beef round...even when it is made tender by stewing mainly when I was younger that was the cheapest part of beef we could buy... now I can get tenderloin for not much more......just seems funny to me....how things change..
