Got these the other day from Bubba Tim, for my Easter meat-fest. Trust me, we had veggies too, but my series of pics were decidedly meat-oriented. Got nominated for the Bubba-Tim Approved Carnivore Meat Dish Award by LC (according to the awards committee), and shortly thereafter was informed of my winning.

The Loot

Not a bad haul, eh?
Thanks much, Bubba-Tim and LC.

Believe it or not, almost all that meat was wiped out easter day. I sent the ham bone home with my dad last night for his annual mega-pot of pea soup. I think I will do something similar with the lamb bone. Some gravlax is left, some pate', and that's about it.

For lunch the other day i had my wife's home made croutons (about an inch square) slathered with pate'. I wonder what my cholesterol level is this week?

Here's the OP, and thanks again.

    mom always gave us campbells scotch broth when we came in, cold and wet, from playing in the snow.
    lamb and barley stew with celery and carrots.
    i googled , read a bunch of recipes and adapted to my taste.. it was good .

    the inebriated diminutive canadian replied to my post that his grandparents were Scots and it was part of his past as well ,, he may have an actual recipe.


    p.s did your horseradish sprout?

    Holy Moly, I think I gained 10$ just looking at all those pictures!! 8 - ),,,
  • stikestike Posts: 15,597
    i have two fine looking horseradish plants coming up. each end of the row you gave me. i wonder if the others are going to come up?

    i was going to mention it, but was saving it for another post... looking forward to it.

    i will check out the scotch broth. sounds good.

    maybe the diminutive canadian will send me a copy. he's not talking to me until i give him his underwear back.

    it all went, too. mostly.
    i put the lamb out as dessert was being served, and saw a lot of dessert being eaten. came in to find the lamb bone completely denuded. GONE. and that was after everything else. ravenous, like wolves they were

    Congratulations stike! I somehow had missed your original post but am glad I have seen it now. Not only were your culinary efforts worthy of reward but your photography was as well. Outstanding! Thanks for sharing.

    that's it... now that you have tasted fame and soon to be fortune we will be left in your dust to say "I knew him when" I assume there will be an autograph session at the New Hampshire egg fest? B) for 50 cents can we see the pins in person?
    LOL well deserved awards Jeff :kiss:
  • BobSBobS Posts: 2,485

    Congrats! You earned it. ;)
    Talent, pure talent.
  • stikestike Posts: 15,597
    are you giving out photography awards? :)

    thanks for the praise. i just try to work with the limitations of my set-up here, so they (pics) tend to look similar after a while.

    there are some good photographers on the forum, and i've tried to get a little better at it. if i'm going to take the time for a pic, it's worth trying to make it a little better.

    here's a few older pics, prior to trying :laugh:

    took me a while, but i pulled it off.
    i think the average weight of meat among the btcmd winners is something like 50 pounds-plus. i honestly just barely qualified :laugh:

    #1 It was a great cook. Congrats. #2 bill's horse radish doesn't grow worth a darn in the South. #3 bill's mother gave him the scotch to sedate him not keep him well and #4 why do you have the little drunk Kanuk's underwear? :blink:
  • Congratulations!

    That cook was incredible!! Great pictures too!!
