This is just a sandwich. But it is a sandwich with home smoked pulled ham. I had it in the freezer and it or something like it is always available. It is way better than the plastic sliced meat they sell at supermarkets and is way cheaper than the products from a good deli. All the while, it tastes great.
So, if you want to have great food, eat better, save money and be healthier, cook your own food. Prepare meats, breads and other foods for your freezer.

A kind friend gave me some Tagine spices for Christmas. She knew I like to try different dishes. I finally got around to trying them. Continue reading Chicken Tagine, Gourmet Village Seasoning Mix
When you have a sourdough starter, it is sort of like a kid or a pet. It wants attention. If you don’t do something with it every week, it stops functioning. As a result, I was looking for a different sourdough recipe to keep my Sourdough Sam going. Continue reading Sourdough Oatmeal Raisin Muffins, A Good Way To Start the Day
I slipped on the ice and hurt my back. Nothing serious but a four course meal was out of the question. It was time for our fall back emergency meal, pizza. Continue reading Emergency Meal, Pizza
I noted this story on the CBC news site:
Nutrition labels on food packaging under microscope in U.S., Canada.
In case the link dies, the story notes the US is proposing changes to food labeling. Two of the significant changes are putting the calorie count in large bold print and requiring serving sizes to be more realistic. Who eats 10 potato chips?
These are welcome and significant changes. I wholeheartedly support changes that give more usable information to consumers.
Unfortunately, they don’t go far enough. When you can put a very small amount of whole grains in bread and call it multigrain bread or call a powdered drink mix natural, there is still a major problem with honest labeling.
Hopefully, this is just a first step that will be followed through on. If we can’t count on our government to protect us from misleading labeling, who do we look to?

I got a coupon that gave me a discount on cheese. With that coupon, it only cost me a portion of the national debt to buy some. Continue reading Time To Smoke Cheese!

I was honoured to be asked by 4H to judge a speech contest. It was a wonderful experience.
The young speakers were talented and spoke with a confidence I didn’t have at their age. They were very impressive.
One of the speeches was about production of food and the addition of antibiotics, steroids and treatment at the feed lots. I learned a lot about commercial production of food, not all good!
I am so impressed that the 4H organization is not just growing our future leaders but is helping them learn and communicate this kind of information.
