Last weeks blizzard we slow cooked a fat hen, boned it and made a stew. Carrots, onion, cabbage, celery and thick noodles. Used some of the excess meat for chicken salad. Hot in the pot we were on full,feed during the blizzard. :)
Now, we have another blizzard baring down on us. Don't want to do the chicken thing again so soon.
Give me some ideas for blizzard food? :cowboy:

We don't have blizzards but each year we make brunswick stew and freeze it in gallon bags for later use. Its really handy on those cold days and is delicious as well. Does take some time to make so its best to get you a campfire going outside and make it an event.

Beef Stew -

Salt and pepper a chuck roast and bake till tender. Put some onion, green pepper, carrots in while baking.

Take the drippings and add taters, celery, carrots, onion, maters, garlic, green peppers or jalapenos or both. Salt, black pepper, maybe some basil. Simmer till veggies are about done and add meat back to the pot.

When the roast has cooled, tear the meat apart and add back to the vegetables.


I always liked chicken and dumplings when it was cold.

Good pot of chili goes good too.

Chili, vegetable soup, chicken soup, and such. I normally make about 3 gallons at the time. Eat on it for a few meals and baggie the rest for freezing.

Another tip, use the large ziplock bags and lay them flat and neat in the freezer when freezing. Amazing how many of these you can stack in a freezer when the shape is uniform...

I've got beef vegetable on the go right now.I am boiling my short ribs first and when they are tender I will add the rest. I like pasta in it instead of potatoes. Mr. Hd likes it because you need a knife and a fork to eat it.. ;-)

When he's home I usually always have a big pot of something on ,it is great for winter days .

I know what taters are but what are maters??????

what goes down well in our house is Ox-Tail soup and Irish stew, but it would seem that Lamb is not used much in the States, so Irish stew might be hard....a good cut of neck of lamb, parsnips, swede, turnips, carrots, onions, potatoes, handful of pearl barley, and rice. Gravy cubes salt pepper and a few mixed herbs, top the pot up with water and bring to the boil, and let simmer for as long as possible a good few hours, stir occasionally so as not to stick to the bottom, then leave to go cold skim off the fat and reheat and enjoy.

I will tell you that a ''mater'' is a tomato if you will explain what a ''gravy cube'' is :tiphat:

For me anything hot will do, but chili was the first thing that came to mind. Ham & beans usually hits the spot on a cold day, too.

Vett I had to think on that as well. I thought it was tomatoes. Great recipe by the way ,I will have to try that with the jalapenos.

I think the gravey cube is a bullion(sp) cube.

Isn't beef a wonderful thing.. :D

Good bullion is the reason I bake the chuck roast first. It makes a really rich bullion. A real big difference from boiled or stewed meat.

If you don't have to watch the carbohydates, adding noodles or penne pasta is good. Can make a roux to thicken it up a bit.

I think that you should just head on down to Dairy Queen and order a Blizzard... They don't last nearly as long... There's a different flavor featured every month... And you can even get one in the dead of summer.... :D

This turned out to be a wimpy blizzard. 6-7 inches of fluff, a little wind at first then just a breeze now. Wind chill is at a rather pleasant 28 below.
