    Thumbs up

    A few of my specialties are Homemade chicken enchilladas, Ham and sausage jabalaya, and the crowd favorite slow cooked pulled pork.

    Thick Cheese and Onion Sandwiches have always been a tradition on Day Duties in the UK...

    Curry...the hotter the better is the favourite night dish...

    Spaghetti Bolognase and Irish Stew are close runners up

    With BBQ's on those Long Summer Evenings.

    Oh my! It's sooooo good.

    A recipe for disaster:


    - 2 1/2 to 3 pounds corned beef brisket
    - 3 "Medium - Large" potatoes with the skin removed cut into chunks
    - 3 carrots, cut into smaller chunks
    - 1 "medium" sized onion
    - 2 Parsnips chunked up
    - 2 Turnips chunked up
    - 1 Medium cabbage cut into 8 or so wedges
    - Salt and pepper, as much as you desire. Usually 1 tablespoon of each is good.

    Bring beef to boil (With just enough water to go just over the top of it), then let simmer for 2 hours, add in your vegetables, and let simmer for another 30 minutes (at least!), or longer depending on how loose you want the beef to be. We usually let it simmer for around 45, instead of 30.

    Drain most of the "juice" from the pot, place meat on the platter, and serve it up. Some of the guys like to keep a little bit of the "juice" with the meet to keep it from drying if it's made into leftovers (not too likely )

    Oh, and serve it with some rolls. Rolls are good to go with it. A nice garden salad with the freshest of crunchy vegetables makes it all the better, too.

    Friday is my day to cook in the station and since I'm on duty tomorrow, it's me.

    We serve tradition up on Friday. Been that way for at least 20 years and since we only work Friday every three weeks, everyone looks forward to the meals.

    Lunch is Jambalaya
    Dinner is fried chicken, mashed 'taters, green beans, spicy/sweet corn and gravy.

    Chili, pastas and anything on the grill (cooked to perfection-not beyond recognition)

    Hot Italian sausage all cooked up in tomato sauce with all kinds of peppers, a few onions, and crushed tomatoes, and of course the secret blend of spices. Throw it on a hoagie bun w/ some sliced mozzarella or other cheese of your choice and it's awesome. Spices are only "secret" because I dunno what they put in it...whatever it is, it sure is good...
