The first Friday of every month is going to have a different bread recipe – the Bread of the Month. Last month I shared Olive Cheddar Bread. For the third bread I wanted to do something with oats. So I mixed up this bread with the intention of using it as a sandwich bread. It was great for sandwiches, but it made great toast too!! We ate it way too fast. So here it is …
Any dish that is ‘hearty’ is a number of things. It’s rich, so it’s going to be fatty. It’s meant to be served with big portions so it has to have ingredients that go a long way but don’t cost a lot. So you’re looking at dishes in the stew, casserole and roast categories. These are categories which are dominated by certain cultures, such as the UK, France, the U.S. and Canada to name a few. It’s because they have very cold places in their nations and that means, there’s a need for an entire meal to be on one plate, in one serving.
Boy can things change fast! 2020- Lets just fast forward and be done with you!! I was supposed to return to work this coming Monday – As much as I’ve enjoyed working in my yard, I do miss the people I work with, staff and families. But things have changed.
After multiple doctor visits, my husband’s health would be put at risk to go back and work with children and families that are also out and about in the communities. So I continue to shelter in place. Working in my yard and cooking.
But when I’m tired from digging and I haven’t thawed anything out, where can I get some quick ideas for a meal? Well right here!! There are so many delicious ideas shared at this part, we all can know…

When I was growing up mom used to make a dish she called Goop. She explained to us that during the depression, meat was rationed. People had to stretch the little bit they had for every meal. My maternal grandmother (Grammy) made this recipe up during that time and it’s become a family tradition.
It had some meat, rice, little noodles, and some veggies all cooked together in the same pot. And the flavor was so good! I even loved it cold. We thought mom had never actually written the recipe. She just knew hot to make it.
After she passed we thought we’d never have Goop again. My sister tried to reproduce it, and she got pretty close, but it just wasn’t the same. Well low and behold my Aunt asked if I wanted the recipe. Wait, what?
My mother had given Aunt Kathy the recipe when her and my paternal Uncle were first married and on a budget. And she’s had it all these years! I’m so excited to share this dish with you. She sent me some other family recipes too. Can’t wait to try them all!
We love ribs, but getting out the smoker and smoking them takes a lot of time – time we don’t have these days! But we love the flavor of smoked foods. Although this is not a replacement for real smoked ribs, they do have that delicious smoky flavor and are a lot easier to make.
