    Default WIP: Tourtiere

    Impending snowstorm moved our travel up by two days. Eeeeekk!
    I've made the tourtiere filling and, damn, it's good! Possibly the best
    ever.

    Red cabbage is on the stove, made by Himself. When that's done and
    I've got the right burner, I'll fry rosettes.

    We're staying home, just the two of us, or possibly David's son will come
    by. We decided against the usual traditions of beef roast, ham, or
    turkey.

    I made a roaster full of holupki last night (I like when it's been sitting
    in the fridge for a couple of days). We'll have that with mashed potatoes,
    and a cucumber and onion salad.

    Thursday morning I will bake chocolate chip cookies for David (his very
    favorite), ginger cookies for both of us, and a pecan pie for myself (no
    one else here likes it).

    Have a safe trip, Barb!

    Holubky are best after a couple days in the fridge, IMO. they also
    freeze very nicely. When I make a batch, I freeze them in pkgs of 3.

    The rosettes were an f'ing nightmare. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!!
    Another thread for that.

    I tried making rosettes with a friend at their home. Never again! I feel
    your pain.

    Speaking of tourtiere, about 30 years ago my oldest daughter was
    working in Waikiki and she sent me a Hawaiian cookbook for Christmas.
    I have to chuckle every time someone mentions tourtiere because this
    Hawaiian cookbook has a recipe for French Canadian Torture Pie.

    Got the batter over the top of the mold did you?
    All those little pried off pieces still taste OK.

    LOL! Funny how things get lost in translation. Thanks for the

    I bow to you and your predecessors, the Ladies of the Church Basement
    Socials. Who the heck thought up such a nightmarish endeavor? They taste
    wonderful, but you need all the Kitchen Fairies on your side. 'o}

    It's been a long time ago and I don't really remember, but that certainly
    could have been the reason. I do remember geting them off the iron was
    difficult.

    LOL!
    This is the first year I haven't ground the pork myself. I didn't need
    the aggravation. My meat guy ground it for me -- a couple pounds of pork
    butt, what I've always used.

    A little batter over the mold (twice only, Mr. Smartass) was **the
    least** of my headache. I've just posted the story.

    Difficult only if you get batter on top of the mold. Fried rosette
    comes right off the mold. Sometimes the first one is a dud, like
    pancakes can be. Didn't have "first rosette dud" problem, though.

    I did it only once, no problem getting them off the iron. I just hate
    frying and don't particularly like eating fried foods.

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    What went wrong with yours, Wayne? I love making them, but nobody
    close wants sugary treats, the office staff is already stuffed, and
    they don't ship well. I may make some, anyway, just for the heck of
    it.
