Recipe: Carl's Junior
Dish Type: Main Course
Feeds: Me
Prep Time: Not fast enough
Primary Ingredients: Don't know they wouldn't tell me. Sneaking suspicion they didn't speak English.
Also Required: Car and middle school Spanish lessons.(passing Helpful, not required)
Instructions: Drive up order. Not understand what was being said. Pull up to first window not knowing what you've now ordered. Pay indeterminable sum of money for product your not sure on. Get home realize they understood you but forgot your fries. Wife yells at you for not checking because they never get it right anywhere. Drive back to Carl's junior w/ receipt. Explain in Spanglish how you no recievy the papas fritas. Waste time and money for something you could have made at home if it weren't for the fact that the wife really likes their fries. Tell her you can have mine, she complains you paid for them, you should get them. Spend one hour crying in the park before you go home complaining about the line you got stuck in.

I ate at Carl's Junior today.
It was soso.

This is a delicious recipe that is my current favorite. I did consider killing those who I have told, but then my generous nature overcame my temporary insanity.:D

Crockpot French Dip
3-4 lb. rump roast
1 packet dried Au Jus
1 packet Italian Dressing
1 can beef broth
2 t. Worchestershire sauce
1 t. garlic salt
1 1/2 c. dry red wine

Cook low for 10-12 hours, serve with the juice on deli rolls. I like to put swiss cheese and sauteed onions on mine. DELICIOUS!!!

Here is a serious junk food recipe that goes way back in my family.

Potato candy

Boil a potato until it's like a baked potato.

Peel the skin off.

Mix it with powdered sugar until it's the same consistency as a cookie dough.

Roll it out as thin as you can, but hurry up, it tends to dry fairly fast.

Spread peanut butter on it, and perhaps other things if you want, like chocolate or cinnamon.

Roll it back up like you're rolling up a big piece of paper.

Then slice it into little cookie shape pieces.

Maybe it's no wonder diabetes is so common in my family?

I used to cook a lot, when I was single. Then when I moved to Australia, I really cooked a lot. Imagine a world with no Mexican food. :eek: Just finding some of the ingredients (cilantro=coriander) was a challenge. If there was a way I could post my favorite recipes, I would. But most of the time, I just grab what I need and starting chopping, slicing and dicing. Perhaps my salsa recipe should be shared though.

Here are a couple of quick and simple meals that I came up with while traveling on the road. all you need is a rubbermaid bowl and a microwave to cook it in. Serve on paper plates. With plastic forks so all you need to clean is the bowl.

1 bag of the microwavable rice Chicken flavored
1 can of white chunk chicken
1 jar of chicken gravy

Cook rice as per instructions

Mix chicken and gravy, microwave til hot

Mix chicken/gravy mixture in bowl with rice

Serves 2


1 can of chili your choice
1 jar of con queso cheese dip
corn chips
shredded lettuce

Mix chili and cheese and microwave til hot

spoon over plate of chips, top with lettuce, salsa etc.

Serves 2 or more depending on how much mix you dump over the chips.


This one is more for cooking at home with a stove and all the good stuff.

Chili cornbread

1 cup cornmeal
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 eggs
1 can cream style corn
1 cup milk
2 TBSP vegetable oil
1 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained.
2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 (4oz) can of chopped green chiles
1 medium onion, chopped.

Sprinkle a table spoon of cornmeal in a greased 13 in. by 9 in. by 2 inch baking pan and set aside.

In a bowl mix the salt, baking soda and cornmeal. Mix in beaten eggs, corn, milk and oil. Stir just until moistened. Will be pretty thin so don't freak out. Pour 1/2 the batter into the prepared baking pan. Layer with beef, cheese, chilies and onion. Top with remaining batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown.

Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.

Yield: 8 servings. Can eat warm or cold.

I like this plain, my wife says plain is ok but she prefers to have some chili with it and uses the chili cornbread as she would use just plain cornbread. As it says this is good both hot and cold. I have found that when you put the remaining mix on the top of the layered meat and cheese etc. if you push it down a bit to mix the layered part and the cornbread mix when it cooks up it holds together better. It is a solid block instead of an upper and lower layer of cornbread separated by cheese and meat. So later when you pack it for lunch or trail it will hold together well and can be eaten more like a sandwich instead of falling apart and being a sandwich bag full of crumbs.

My family, as far as I know. Whoever made it up has probably been dead longer than anyone reading these words has been alive.
I'm trying this. What type of potato? What is the consistency I'm looking for? Fork tender or mush. Do peel them first, cut them down?
