Made with people or made with animals?

Thank you, I'll be here all week...

Ah, I was hoping someone would ask (because I did as well)!

Okay, sorry. For people. In fact, there are some for people recipes I think that could be fished out the dog recipe section.

<span style="color: #339999">Cindy's Warm Pasta Salad
What you’ll need:
(this is all according to taste of course ~ just make sure you have lots of ingredients!)

Sun dried tomatoes
Olives (black or green)
Two bunches scallions
Mushrooms (canned or fresh)
A couple garlic cloves
Extra Virgin (or light tasting) olive oil. About ¼ cup for pan & finishing.
Garlic powder, salt & pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. Fresh grated Parmesan or other hard Italian cheese.

1 pound pasta (I like angel hair or bowtie)</span>

<span style="color: #6633FF">Cook 1 lb pasta according to directions. (I use the kind in the yellow box or the purple box – half whole grain type).
Cook asparagus & set aside.

You may have to soften the tomatoes … just soak them in warm water for 10 minutes or so before frying them.

Simmer in large frying pan cut up scallions, mushrooms, garlic cloves & anything else you have until onions & garlic are soft.

Toss the Sun dried tomatoes & asparagus into the frying pan for several minutes – then transfer whole concoction to pasta.

Add Olive Oil, garlic powder salt & pepper to taste.
Top with grated cheese while warm.</span>

Jeanne Mancini's Osso Buco recipe.

2 veal shanks
1/4 c. flour
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 T. buitter
3 T opil
1 c. onion, coarsely chopped
1 c. pared sliced carrots
1/2 c. diced celery
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1 c. dry white wine
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp thyme
3 parsley sprigs
1 bay leaf

2 T. parsley
2. T. chopped celery
1 T grated lemon peel
1 tsp. crushed garlic

Have butcher cross-cut veal shinbones into 3-inch pieces (make sure they have plenty of meat and marrow.). Tie each piece with string to hold meat together.

Combine flour, salt and pepper, and rub mixture into veal shaks, coating them well all over. Heat butter and oil in a large pot over medium heat, and brown shanks well on all sides, about 30 minutes. Remove meat and set aside.

To dripping in pot add onions, carrot, celery and garlic. Saute, stirring until onion is tender. Add tomato sauce, wine, basil, thyme, parsley and bay leaf. Bring to boil, reduce heat and add veal. Place in upright position so that round marrow bone faces up (best done with tongs). The liquid should come halfway up the shaks. Simmer, covered, 2 1/2 hours or until very tender.

Prepare gremolata: combine all ingredients. Mix well. Add half to the veal shanks and simmer 5 minutes. Remover strings from meat, arrange on serving plate, and add rest of gremolate on top.

Spicy curry chicken with a mango/coconut puree

Spicy curry chicken with a mango/coconut puree
This is a FAV at my house, I make it once a week and it’s ridiculously easy.

2 Mangos, peeled and sliced, divided
1 can of coconut milk
4 teaspoons vegetable oil
4 teaspoons spicy curry paste (I use Patak’s curry paste)
1 lb of chicken cut in pieces
4 medium shallots, sliced

Place half of the mango slices into the bowl of a blender with the coconut milk. Blend until smooth and reserve for later.

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the curry paste, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add the chicken and shallots; cook until the chicken is done and the shallots have softened, about 5 minutes.

Pour in the mango puree, and cook until heated through. To serve, stir in the remaining mango slices.

Tator Tot Casserole


1-2 pounds of ground beef, browned and drained
1 can of cream of chicken soup (do not dilute)
1 can of cream of mushroom soup (do not dilute)
8-12 ounces of your favorite shredded cheese (I use colby jack)
1 bag of frozen tator tots
salt and pepper (and or other seasonings) to taste

Combine the browned ground beef with the two cans of soup and spread the mixture into a 9x13 casserole dish. Sprinkle the cheese liberally over the mixture. Top with the frozen tator tots. It's up to you how many tots you use. Line 'em up in a row all nice and neat or toss the whole bag on top and spread around.

Bake @ 375 degrees for 40 minutes or so. You want the tops of the tots to be brown and crispy.

Note: Because I live down here in the South, I brown up some onion, garlic, celery and bell-pepper first and then add in my ground beef. You may also use ground turkey or ground pork. Or... heh.. all three if you want.

This meal is cheap if made by the above instructions. On average you'll spend roughly around 10 bucks for the ingredients. It's tasty, quick, cheap and most all kids LOVE it.
