Ham in the oven and I'll fry a turkey soon. Not so much traditional sides because as a family we are pretty much low carb and/or gluten free. We'll hve baked winter squash, cauliflower mash, saute veggies and a goat cheese cake. All  my kids and grand babies are here. The meal is just icing on the cake.

I may not remember everything but there was Shrimp Gumbo, Ham, Potato Salad, and various Casseroles.  Desserts included Lemon Icebox and Coconut pies.  Some tried to eat it all but I settled on Gumbo and a slice of pie.  There will be plenty left over to go to the Cabin for a few quiet days.

69,

   Sounds like all you were missing were the grits and swamp cabbage.

Sous Vide 13 pound rib roast 22 hours then season and under the broiler for 3 minutes. Complete meat temp 133 degrees throughout. Best and most tender I have ever had. Cut with a spoon.
Candied yams, baked green beans, kitchen sink mashed potatoes with extra garlic, home baked dinner rolls. Fresh baked triple berry pie and pound cake with vanilla ice cream and strawberries.
Sue Ann's daughter and Grandson flew in from the frozen north yesterday afternoon to join us for a week.

I went to the fishing boat dock today and got fresh scallops and shrimp to go with some catfish and snow crab.

Thanks a lot Bill!  We don't have fresh seafood here in the frozen middle USA  :).  I was sick through most of the weekend but still got plenty of chili, hamburger soup, roast, and of coarse homemade bread with all the other fixin's that go along.  Haven't used the smoker in awhile but I'm getting this itch, hmm.... :new_year: everyone!

SG21,

   I suspect Swamp Cabbage, if any, in BC is vastly different than that in southern Fla. Swamp cabbage I'm talking about is the heart of sabal palm. You cut the heart out and peel similar to artichoke hearts as I understand (Not a big fan of artichoke so I can't swear to this) and cut the bottom tender bits off. When the bud starts to get tough you peel off another layer or two and repeat. If you cut too far up it starts to get bitter from Quinine in the plant. (I've heard that was reason Seminole Indians did not get malaria as SC was part of their staple diet.) My grandmother used to add a little sugar to counteract the bitter.

   You can eat the hearts raw in a salad or boil like green cabbage. My favorite cooking method is to fry a couple of strips of bacon to grease the pan then fry the cabbage in the bacon/grease. (Regular cabbage is also very good prepared this way.) Add a little salt and pepper eat to your hearts content. Warning - this a very high fiber food with the resulting, sometimes beneficial, sometimes embarrassing results. Eat in moderation until you know your tolerance levels.

69,

   You need to spend more time down south and less up in New York. :D

Took my corned venison out of the brine yesterday.
12 good sized pieces, bone in buck neck total of 35 pounds.
Should last all year after giving a few away to friends and family.
Plan to do one  in the crock pot on low all day tomorrow and add cabbage, potato and carrot for the last hr.

Raider Bill, in what did you heat/cook a 13 lb roast in that would keep the temp @ 133?

   Corned venison roast, boiled taters, carrots, cabbage and cornbread wedges with a big old glass of unsweetened iced tea. (Ever since my wife found out I prefer the corner pieces of cornbread she has made it in a round pan just for spite. Now that's a mean women!).

You can get brownie pans that are all corners. Would probably work for cornbread, too.

Dave,

  She definitely would not want to let me use that! :D

    The leftover corned deer will be used to make sandwiches. I should get some rye bread and make a Reuben sandwich. I'd have to use cole slaw instead of sauerkraut which I do not like.

Jambalaya.
 

 
Last week I was enjoying a bowl of hot Gumbo and tonight a plate of Jambalaya along with coleslaw and a couple of "catheads".  Jambalaya has basically the same ingredients as Gumbo such as rice, shrimp, and sausage but it is a drier dish where Gumbo has gravy.  Both good Coonass dishes.   food6
