Shrove/Pancake Tuesday

Tonight I made scratch made pancakes with some ready made sausages for the observance of Shrove Tuesday. This is a time where people consume all the high fattening and rich stuff in their homes before going into the season of Lent. I am a huge pancake fan and enjoy making them for breakfast on Saturday mornings to any chance to bring them into the supper realm is always good.

One Of My Favorite Asian Restaurants Closed :( #chattanooga

Red Bank’s Red Ginger Bistro is closed.

The sushi restaurant has been cleared out, the phone line is disconnected, and online ordering has been disabled. For more visit Red Bank restaurant closes

This restaurant was not the greatest Chinese/Japanese/Sushi place but it was convenient and it was tasty enough. It’s been several Asian restaurants over the years and it is a true hole in the wall. I will miss the food and the family that ran it. Fortunately there are many other places of its type around.

Mississippi Pot Roast

This pot roast is good in Mississippi or anywhere. Awesome stuff!

The Soup Diva

  • 1 3-4 pound chuck roast
  • 3-4 pepperoncini peppers
  • 4-6 whole peeled garlic cloves
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix
  • 1 packet onion soup mix
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Cornstarch and flour for gravy (optional)
Pat roast dry with paper towels and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Place in slow cooker, put all other ingredients on top of and around roast, and cook on low for 8 hours. Remove meat to plate and remove peppers (they will likely have split open during cooking, and you may squeeze out the insides into the pot if desired).
To make gravy: stir 1 tbsp cornstarch and 2 tbsp flour into the liquid in the pot until blended. Shred or slice meat if desired and put back into the pot until ready to serve.

The Soup Diva

There’s a reason why there are rarely any leftovers of this dish.

  • 1 32 oz bag frozen hash browns
  • 16 oz sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar
  • 1/2 stick butter, softened
  • 4 strips bacon, fried and crumbled (or 1/4 cup real bacon bits)
  • 6 chives, diced (can substitute 2 green onions)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Black pepper to taste

Place potatoes in colander in sink and rinse until thawed and separated; let drain. In large bowl, mix all other ingredients together until well blended and add potatoes; stir to incorporate. Spoon into sprayed 13 x 9 x 2 baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. These went really well with Mississippi Pot Roast.
