New Year's Lunch with Us and a Recipe...

Our "Mamaw Hutty" checking her skillet chicken
and dressing to see if it is done...

Both were fabulous too! Moister than ever before...
Recipe? She never uses one but I watched this time...

Roasted garlic Brussels sprouts...delicious...
(recipe is on my blog...search for it...)

Black eyed peas with fatback and slab bacon...
Just note that we only add these seasonings on 
New Year's Day...lol...not an everyday pleasure...

Butter beans...

White kernel corn and seasoned turnip greens...

Mashed potatoes with melted butter...

Turkey roasted all night in the oven...
seasoned well
(recipe also on my blog...)

The turkey is always moist through and through...
placed homemade white sauce on the table and bbq sauce...

Although our two-legged family members aren't much into the dark meat,
our four-legged ones are...Beau and Chocolate are happy!!
You will see one of them in a moment...

The dressing of one pan...see...yummy...
eat your heart out friends...
My mother's dressing is amazing, only next to my
Crock Pot dressing of course...=)

Yes, Chocolate is napping nicely after
enjoying his meal...

Rita's Creamy Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes

5 lbs of Fresh Potatoes
6 qt Crock Pot
1 small can Fat Free Evaporated Milk
1 Tablespoons Real Butter
Salt

Peal the potatoes and dice them into small pieces. Rinse them well and place them in the Crock Pot. Cover them with water, sprinkle with salt and cook on low all night or 8 hours. Turn the Crock Pot off and allow them to sit for 1 hour to cool. Then drain the potatoes well. Spoon 1/3 of the potatoes into an electric mixer and pour 1/3 of the can of milk over the potatoes and add 1/3 of the butter. Mix well. Add another 1/3 each of the potatoes, milk and butter and mix well. Repeat this process until all is mixed well and creamy. Add spray butter to season. *A hand mixer will work well too.

~ This is less in calories too. "Fat Free" products bring good flavors to dishes but do watch the sodium content and sugar content in these items. Also, spray butter is a wonderful substitute for margarine and we have replaced all margarine with real butter and all oils with olive oil and cooking spray with olive oil in our home and the weight loss has continued. We don't use them often but when we need to these are our choices.  Finally, I don't add salt to the cooking time of my vegetables, instead I use a variety herbs. They are fragrant and add delicious flavors. Enjoy...


Happy New Year, Everyone...
Hugs, Rita
