Hillary..Bill..Arabs...& ..a Memphis Rub!

Wells Sir, no matter how ya cut seems that in some way or anuther "Slick Willy" is always screwin Hillary. Marriage, Monica and now the Arabs...ya just gotta laugh. In an earlier post today, I mentioned how Dick Morris broke the story on that O'Reilly feller's program last night that our "Good ol, boy" Willie has been a cozyin up with the Arabs and makin behind the scenes of which comes right back to the Dubai Port deal which evry one's got they're panties in a bunch over. I had a ton a cookin t'do fer t'day so in my earlier post I asked my feller blogger t'look inta this and sho nuff they got all the up t'date info. Seems Hillary didn't even know Willie was involved but....well.. y'all can read the whole thing at The Dread Pundit Bluto or The Jawa Report or Vince Aut Morire. Them fellers ran with it and got the whole story...good job. It seems t'me that Hillary shood be a buyin some a that thar petrolium jelly...but..I guess thats just my way a thinkin. Hey y'all...her's a great BBQ rub fer all your meats....I hears its reel great.......I just got it frum Andy Roy of Cicero, NY just a piece down the road frum t'is........Memphis Rub

¼ cup paprika
1 tablespoon firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 to 3 teaspoons cayenne pepper (I use 2)
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder

Combine all the ingredients in a jar or other airtight container and shake up well. Store away from heat and light for up to 6 months. Makes about ½ cup—enough for 4 to 6 racks of ribs.
I use this rub quite often in my home—it’s perfect for grilling steaks/ribs, but is also great on chicken. My guests love it. When I make it, I make it in triple batches so I have enough on hand.

Clinton, Ports, Arabs.... Quiche Provincial

WellSir...I'm just a country folk, but I do watch that thar O'Reilly feller regularly, and last night, amung uther things, he had on that Dick Morris feller (who I think is pretty smart political analyst). Mr. Morris was a sayin how his wife discovered (uncovered) the fact that our ex-president, Bill Clinton, is a wurkin for one a those Arab firms that, thru various connections and companies, is connected to the Dubai Port deal we're makin so much a fuss about...and a course he's a gettin paid fer his effurts( a course he didn't tell no one bout all this). Mr. Morris also informed everone that the money Bill makes on this c'here deal...Senator Hillary gets half a it cause they got a joint bank account...hmmm...she has been quiet as a late. Mr. Morris made a big deal out of announcing this c'here discovery by his wife but I cain't seem t'find nuthin bout it on any a his websites or Fox's News sites. Hmmmmm....if this be true...then I really be a thinkin it needs t'be envestigated by someone...maybe one a you adept political bloggers out thar.....but I guess that's just my way a fer all you Gourmet' fellers and ladies out there that really loves t'make and cook a somewhat involved recipee, but extremely deelishus frum what I'm a hearin, and well wurth the effurt...c'here's a top-shelf Quiche recipee frum Andy Roy who lives up near my way in Cicero, NY ....thank y'all Andy...I'll be a makin this one reel soon cause I truly do luv a real good tastin Quiche, and lately... I've had a non-stop hankerin fer Vicki's Quiche frum t'other day. th by...Y'all keep the recipees a comin...send em in to ....well... c'here's Andy's.................................Quiche Provincial


1¼ cup olive oil
8 oz. onion (one good-sized onion--about the size of your fist)
14 oz. canned tomatoes
5 oz. chopped green peppers (about ¾ of a pepper—don’t
forget to remove the seeds)
10 oz. sliced mushrooms
1 tsp. crushed garlic (I prefer 2)
14 whole beaten eggs
1 tsp. salt
½ teaspoon pepper
8 oz. diced ham (nothing smoked)
8 oz. diced Canadian bacon
8 oz. diced sausage
1 stick of thinly sliced pepperoni (about 6" long)
1 lb. mozzarella
4 oz. Swiss
2 oz. grated Parmesan
4 oz. cheddar
12 pitted ripe olives
1 tsp. oregano
4 deep-dish pie crusts (I recommend just buying a package
rather than making your own—it saves a ton of time and cleanup)

* I highly recommend you use a food processor to get the ingredients really blended, but in lieu of that, just chop up everything as fine as possible. If you have a food processor, simply use it to slice up all the ingredients one at a time. As each ingredient is minced, simply put it all in a separate bowl until it’s time to add to the hot skillet.


¨ Using a cheese grater or the grating blade of a food processor, grate up all the cheese, placing it all in a single, large bowl
¨ Take the bowl of cheese and place in refrigerator; as you won’t be using the cheese until later, the chilled cheese will be easier to apply to the quiche. If you leave cheese out at room temperature, it will be all clumped up and not easily sprinkled on the quiche
¨ Heat up oil in a large frying pan or electric skillet
¨ Cook onions in oil until slightly transparent
¨ Add the green peppers and mushrooms
¨ Add tomatoes and garlic and cook mixture for 15 minutes in slow simmer; stir often
¨ Add salt and pepper and rest of ingredients (except eggs) into the frying pan. Simmer for another 5-10 minutes
¨ Take eggs and break them all in a separate bowl. Whisk the eggs rapidly until they are smooth and beaten
¨ Using a basting brush, brush some of the eggs (called a wash) onto the edges of the pie crusts. This will keep the crusts from burning when the quiche is in the oven
¨ Distribute cooked ingredients evenly into the 4 pie shells using a large spoon
¨ Using a ladle, evenly cover this with the rest of the egg mixture. You'll see the eggs seep in between all the ingredients
¨ Sprinkle the cheese all over
¨ Place in oven. Cook at 350 degrees 30-40 minutes until slightly brown on top (touch the center; if it springs back, it's done)
¨ Wait approximately 15-20 minutes before cutting the quiche into slices and serving; if you cut into it immediately, it’ll fall apart (much like a fresh pizza—you have to wait for it to settle before diving into it)
¨ Sit back and enjoy one of the tastiest meals you've ever prepared

All Kidding aside for a moment....

When I first started this blog a few weeks back, all I wanted to do was to spin a little country humor and wisdom (in a backwoods, VERY backwoods, style of writing & talking) into articles that ended with some kind of good (I think they're great) recipe' for y'all to try. I had absolutely no intentions whatsoever on becoming allied with any cause or movement. However, I have since discovered something that I did not expect to, nor was I looking for. The ACLU is much more powerful and active than I ever believed possible(I've never liked em much anyhow). While looking for sites to link up with to expand my baby blog, I began visiting the Stop the ACLU and the Stop the ACLU Coalition , along with other like minded blogs, and while reading their posts I discovered just how much in the dark I was. Folks....the ACLU is a very VERY dangerous organization when it comes to our traditional values, religious freedoms and rights. They are wreaking pure legal havoc with small and large cities and towns throughout our great country, and slowly, but surely, eroding our religious freedoms, hometown values and parental rights (and not to mention what they're doing every year at Christmas time). The more I read, the more I was amazed at just how legally and financially powerful they had become. People...this is no drill. We're under attack from within our own borders by people who now have the legal and financial wherewithal to eliminate our most sacred and loved religious, family and traditional values. I really would like for anyone reading this post to visit the above blog links I've provided and become more informed regarding these despicable people and there true agenda. PLEASE....they are truly a fast growing cancer on our society and culture and we need all the help we can get to halt their gangrenous progress....but..I guess that's just my way a thinkin..........Cookie

Stabbed in the Heart..Land....Vicki's Quiche

Well Sir...when I started this chere blog thing I wanted t'write about many differnt things a goin on around this chere country and the wurld...but...them damned ACLUers is a just stirrin up more & more trubbles and they's really gettin me good n pissed off. They just stuck a legal knife inta a real small town out thar in the nations Heartland (Missouri). Seems thay all a been handin out Bible's in an Elementary School (fur as I ever got in skool) fer some time, but now the ACLU say's they cain't do that n'more. I really do dislike them folks! Y'all can be readin more bout it at Stop the ACLU Coalition. Some good news though, seems them good folks out in Indian River, Delaware showed their Cajones and stood up t'them no good SOB's (ACLUers) and refused t'compromize with em. T'werent a victory, but theys willin t'fight em....Good fer y'all!! Y'all can be reading more bout that at the same link. If'n y'all r sick a whats been goin on in this great country, why dontcha go over to Stop the ACLU and join up...or at least give em yur support....but...I guess thats just my way a's a nuther recipee submitted by Vicki Yowans out in Kansas....thanks agin Vicki...oh, and by the way.....anyone who beleeves that real men don't eat Quiche....never had Vicki' t'is....Vicki's Quiche

The 11th Commandment....Marinated Catfish

Well Sir...there be some folks out thar that just never did learn the good ol 11the Commandment...Thou Shalt Not Whine! Seems that a Rev. Barry Lynn, who's affiliated with the Americans United for the Separation of Church and State is rollin on the floor and a kickin his feet cause Justice Sam Alito wrote a thank ya note to the good folks over at the Focus on the Family. His note thanked them fer there prayers and support when he was goin thru all them confirmashun hearins n such. He's a pissin n a moanin that that note definatly shows just where Judge Alito is a comin frum....Well Reverand....too late...and too bad....Whaaaaa. Stop beetin a dead horse.....and by the way...bein a Reverand n such, how come ya never did lurn that Commandment? But I guess thats just my way a thinkin.... now, if'n there's some folks out there that really enjoys their Catfish, here a reel great soundin Catfish recipee frum Nedd over at Stop the ACLU.............Marinated Catfish...MmmmmMm

One or two pounds of catfish nuggets.
Soy Sauce
Vinegar and oil salad dressingShake the vinegar and oil dressing before pouring maybe 1/4th cup. The vinegar and oil dressing can already come preseasoned. Add garlic powder and a couple dashes of celery salt, if you like. Add a couple tablespoons of soy sauce and mix well.

Put catfish nuggets in aluminum dish suitable for broiling and pour the mix over the catfish. You can marinate for 15-30 minutes but it's not absolutely necessary. Broil at maybe 425 degrees for about 5-10 minutes per side til lightly browned at least on one side. Pour the juices and mix over the fish when turning the fish over.

See how that works. That's my fish favorite. Works better on catfish than other fish IMO

Amazing Grace...times 2......

It's a very sad day here in the Cookshack in upstate New York. Within the past two days, 2 fine Law Enforcement Officers were shot and killed in the line of duty. Two days ago, Officer Joseph Corr of the New Hartford, NY Police Department was shot and killed while attempting to apprehend robbery suspects who had just held up a jewelry store for over one million dollars in diamonds and jewelry. Officer Corr, age 30, a 6 year veteran of the New Hartford force, left behind a wife and a baby daughter who had just turned one year old two days prior to his being shot and killed. The suspect in Officer Corr's murder was later shot and killed in a shootout with US Marshals in Philadelphia, PA as they attempted to arrest him (how sad). My kind of swift justice. Today, in Big Flats, NY, near Elmira, NY, New York State Trooper Andrew Sperr, an 11 year veteran of the New York State Police responded to a bank robbery in progress call. While pursuing at least four suspects in the robbery, Trooper Sperr became involved in a shootout, managing to wound at least three of the suspects (gee...too bad...I mean too bad they were only wounded) before being shot and killed himself. The fourth suspect is still at large. If you've a mind to, please say a prayer for both downed Officers and their surviving families. The sound of Amazing Grace being played by a lonely piper on a high hill in the cemetary is a very sad sound indeed....Cookie

Arkansas Deer Camp Breakfast (or Heart Attack in a Skillet)

Ground Sausage
Cast Iron Skillet

This recipe is done according to how many you are feeding
or how hungry the group is. The cook just kinda flies by the seat
of his/her pants on this one. Most of the time done over a campfire,
but can be accomplished on a stove.

Slice, dice or chunk Onion
Start Fryin' up the sausage
Throw in the Onion
Slice, dice, chunk, or grate your potatoes while Sausage & Onion is fryin'
Throw the Potatoes in.
Start crackin' open the eggs into a bowl and whisk
Cook until Potatoes are golden brown
Dump eggs into pan.
Cook until done.

You may drain the grease when & as you see fit, if you are doing the cookin'.
Just remember the next morning when someone else is cheffin' not to complain.
Fairly fast, easy & filling.
Now the only thing left to do is get everybodies full belly up & going out for the
reason you are out in the woods in the first place. Deer Season!

"BARNEY"...On "Eternal Patrol"....

When a submarine fails to return from a mission...She and her crew are said to be on "Eternal Patrol". Borrowing that concept and sentiment...America recently lost one its most loved and watched comedians...Don Knotts. Don played the spindly, nervous "Deputy Barney Fife" on the Andy Griffith show in the 60's. This writer grew up watching and anticipating each new weekly episode. Deputy Fife patrolled the streets of "Mayberry" encountering and becoming involved in various situations which usually ended with his boss, Andy Griffith having to diplomatically (and gently) resolving the comedic mess that usually resulted from Deputy Fife's interference. We'll miss Y'all Barney......God Speed to yur "Eternal Patrol" of the streets of Mayberry.
