That is a sweet little set up, What are the floor dimensions of it? I may use it as a template for my build when I put one up as wind destroyed my canvas on my greenhouse. Im going to guess about 8x12??
That's 12' x 16' using 2'x8' 4x4 post 1' in the ground. It was just a quick easy method to do and it worked out nice.
I had to cook instead of getting the garden planted, it's always something here. My niece and her hubby went crabbing and didn't have enough to feed 9 people so we had to add a sack of crawfish, of course we had all the sides too.
The weather was great today and it was a crab stew, boiled crabs and crawfish. This is how the poor people eat here.
I did something like that last night to make a beef soup. I tried Pho and hated the anise flavor so no more for me but I really need to go eat some in a restaurant to see how bad mine was.
I used oxtails and shanks
browned them down
added 3 onions to the pot to break down into a french onion soup
made a big pot of concentrated beef broth
Took some out this morning and made a smaller pot of soup. I used ginger, brocolli, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, snow peas and garlic then I topped the bowl with cilantro, green onions, hoisin and sriracha sauce.
Thanks for the compliments!! I hope we can keep this going so we can look back and find dishes we haven't had in a while. Sometimes deciding what to cook it harder than cooking. I love this food part of the forum, so many good dishes.
I'm sure everyone knows we in Louisiana will make rice and gravy with any meat available, tonight i made one of my favorites using beef shanks. It makes a nice beef gravy and when cooked right it's hard to beat.
seasoned and pan fried hard to make a dark gravy
add onions and cook down till almost a french onion soup color
add water or stock till it's tender and season if needed
Navy beans with smoked turkey wings, I like to cook dried beans my way and freeze them. It's so much betterr than canned stuff.
tomatoes are fresh from the greenhouse but those cukes are from thr GS. Simple old time dressing just vinegar, sea salt and fresh ground pepper
Pickled beets and I'm ready to eat, I did add Sriracha sauce to spice it up.
