More kitchen shrapnel.

A while ago, I posted a short little ditty on how pyrex can rapidly fail when it's placed into a state of thermal shock. I'd mentioned that it'd happened to me before. Well, I try to keep this blog about things unrelated to me, but I thought it'd be a nice follow up to that story to mention that I had a pyrex dish explode on me. That's no big deal, I cleaned up the resultant mess, and was back about doing my kitchen chores. And then I took a step where I shouldn't have, driving a 3cm shard of pyrex into my foot. Ooooow. Guess I missed some shrapnel! Now I'm hobbling around like I've been shot.

I had moose stroganoff instead. Here's how to make it:

2 cans (min) Cream of Mushroom soup
1 cp of mushrooms (if you can get mushrooms that aren't awful - which means most of AK is out of luck)
1 cp onion (flakes work).
1 squirt ketchup.
Worcestershire sauce to taste.
2-3 lbs of moose stew meat or beef steak cubes.
1.5 cups (min!) of Sour Cream.

Add everything but the sour cream in the morning, put crockpot on low. Stir once before leaving it alone.
Wait 6-8 hours. At the end, add the sourcream and put the crockpot on warm. Serve over rice/bowtie noodles.

You can skip the sour cream if you want to keep a slim figure. Me? I need the fat. :)

I've had 2 of those pyrex things implode while I was holding them, and got bad cuts both times. I won't have it in my house anymore. I've made a similar crockpot recipe (beef, moose is not readily available Down Here) -- a definite crowd pleaser!

Dang, that's gotta hurt.

I make my stroganoff with not only sour cream but with double cream too, also.
