 why is it that folks never ask for radish recipes? why the lack of love? its got good color, great size, easy to grow, cheap and one great tasting root. and folks like beets ?  the wife's cat was left out. loose dogs traumatized her spine. the dogs were lucky. instead of the wife being traumatized along with the flea-bag a couple of dogs would have been baptized. my gater got the only job she was  qualified for ( and everyone one else thinks they are qualified for that loves music.)  let's just say..i can see springsteen or  john lennon  ( yeah, i know..but, i can still imagine) when i can afford a plane ticket. the extremely heavy rain here in the deep south yielded a record crop of pecans. my back hurts :)...probably not as much as the cats'. i planted a fall garden. collards, brocolli, swiss chard, bush beans, and snow-peas. everything looks nice. i gotta find a compost to place around the beans that will be beneficial to the soil in the spring but also protect the bush beans. i had the wife take pictures of the trick or treaters as they came by. we will send the pictures back to the children before christmas. i think it will become a tradition around here. so many excited faces! it seems the blog section has been taken over by folks fulfilling their monthly recipe tasks. i think that is sad. so many good folks no longer participating here. i miss them. the wife is doing well, thank god! i hate turkey...but bird day is coming. oh, here's a food  item---slow cooked turkey breast is moist...i never said it was good. kinda tastes like flavorless wet cardboard with seasonings...but it is moist. i drove the new jag convertible. beautiful car, lotta fun. nope, i'm still holding out for the trans am from smokey and the bandit :). remember to help at your soup kitchen when you can. do you live in the place you want to?  regular gas here is 3.15, milk is is 3.89 a gallon, ground beef is 3.38 a lb, bscb are 1.99 a lb. here. tomatos are still fresh. pears and grapes are excellent , cheap and plentiful here. i wish i had room to grow asparagus. see there is some food talk here. but if you know me...i do think outside the box., especially the beets cilantro box!

When I was in high school my best friend had a black trans-am. We could fit the starting 5 off the girls basketball team and a few more in that car and go out for lunch. Your picture idea of the trick or treaters is great! Could be a nice tradition. I like beets and cilantro - but wonder why nobody asks for radish recipes. Do you have any??

I love radishes and if you roast them like beets they are sweet. .........My father owned the first Mustang sold on Long Island 1964, Chinese Red, 4 speed. And, believe it or not, he taught me to drive in that car!!!..........I am so happy the kitty is recovering!..........if you get your hands on NYNJ Springsteen tickets I will gladly put you up, and feed you too! ..........I spend a lot of time writing my blog to try and make it interesting and still support the sponsors and I am very grateful people read it...........I think many of the people we don't see here anymore have moved to FB..........The first thing I will be thankful for this year is my daughter is cooking and will have to cope with the leftover turkey, I'm not a fan either...........hug Claire an extra time for me!

My hubby loves radishes enough for everybody! I plant them every year, but they don't always come up or the bunnies top them. Robins decapitated my beets this year (and last). Hubby puts string down the rows so I plant straight lines. He doesn't like the way I cut grass either. The robin decided the string makes perfect nesting material and tries to carry it off, meanwhile zinging it across the tops of the radishes and beets.... I finally gave up after the second planting wouldn't come up this year.

Loved the blog! I love radishes but Jim doesn't... we were going to plant them in the fall garden... when we got home we had radicchio... I think he did it on purpose! Sorry bout the kitty! And yes I agree I miss the old timers blogs! Send some pecans my way!!!!!

hi bsm. i like radishes roasted with balzamic vinegar and red-wine.
Nov. 3, 2013 3:32 pm
oops, that earlier post was directed towards mother ann...dang it!
Nov. 3, 2013 3:40 pm
hi bsm! i hope you still have that stang! that's worth a couple dollars now! the gater is going to hawaii 1st then my wishlist commences...and i thought i knew music! i agree, i do believe many old timers have moved on, i guess i'm just stubborn. my gals will be here for the major holidays. it is so much better when i " suggest " a new recipe and they brainstorm a while and decide, yeah, let's do it. i , as well as you i'm sure love to see the progeny in the kitchen! good, bad or ugly recipes...i'll choke it down :)

Hi gderr. Try the radish dip recipe on this site. I made it last year and was surprised how good it was. Roasting is also a good way. Good on you for your fall garden.

hi sassy! i love radishes. we have ( now down to 3 fat siamese) s no hope on keeping the chipmunks at bay. we love birds. i love the idea of stringing twine over the tops. sacrifice the beets for the radishes! straight lines will help identify the beet loss. com'n...radishes deserve their time in a well organized garden too...don't give up!
Nov. 3, 2013 4:09 pm
hi terry! my back as reached a new LOWER level of pain. finally the wife admitted her back hurts. a serious bumper crop of pecans. i even found a siamese one/two. i wish i could post a picture of it! large and strange looking!! i'm gonna get the tech-proficient daughters to post some pictures of the different varieties, sizes and assortment we have pilfered.

hi linnie! a roasted radish recipe is right up my alley :) the garden has no choice but to produce...i'm practically pushing it out of the ground while singing to the seedlings.

Gderr-I thought my husband was the only one who loved radishes. I wish I could eat them, but radishes give me heartburn. Now, there are organic radishes, I might try some. As you can guess, no garden here this year. I really miss the garden I had at my old house. Our new house needs to be landscaped and maybe next year there will be a place for a garden. I know there will be radishes in the garden. Nice blog.

Hate radishes, love pecans. I will trade you avocados for them! I was beginning to wonder why most of the blogs were nothing more than commercials lately. Overkill! How many ways can you prepare a tatertot? I love turkey, but if you could choose something else for the main course what would it be?
Nov. 5, 2013 7:37 am
Those pecans would be superin my fruitcake, Gary! And those radishes? Dipped in a little bit of Cajun spice and they become a treat for a king.
Nov. 5, 2013 3:38 pm
hi lela! i only have a small garden. it's more expensive, troublesome and time-consuming...but it's just a big dirt pile i can play in and the cats use as a litter box...if i'm not watching. yeah, get a container garden of herbs if nothing else. any garden ( like any type of boat) is food for the soul.
Nov. 5, 2013 3:41 pm
hi susan! avocados not on the same page :) grilled steak but i know i'll make a pig butt and be happy. you wouldn't believe how grateful i am when i can give away the fowl!
Nov. 5, 2013 3:44 pm
hi mike! hope that problem is in full remission! e-mail me at cderr@aol.com you do make an impressive door stop :)
Nov. 5, 2013 7:22 pm
gderr...love radishes...we plant them every spring. the crop is a little iffy. hard trying to find them out of season with any flavor. i have never had them cooked. guess i'm scared...lol pecans? love them. would love to be able to grow them here! :-)
Nov. 6, 2013 12:39 pm
LOLOLOL! How did I know this was your blog?! You know what? I used to not like radishes but unlike those lowly beets and cilantro, they have captured my palate. Can't say dear, dear Mike's fruitcake ever will no matter how well he makes it. gderr, I have been remiss in blogging. I have just been in a slump. I have a blog languishing on a back burner. It has waited 2 months to see the light of day. I will get it done TOMORROW! If you don't mind I will send you an email about the next one I wish to post. I think you will like it. It is too bad that at the end of the month the ambassadors must fulfill their assignments but then it is advertisement and the world doesn't seem to go round without it.

Hey Big Shots, wow, my very first car was a 1964 1/2 Mustang, auto with a 260 CI V8 which was what I ultimately learned those early 'stangs' were released with. I bought it used in 1977 for 500$. I remember thinking it had a replacement engine because it had a 260 badge on the side, which I knew as a 6 cyl designation. Gderr, I like radishes, I do but man they are a testy little vegetable aren't they? They don't play well with others and they resist traditional methods of cookery. I have a radish recipe if you want it, for roasted radishes, one of the worst dishes I've ever eaten yet others reviewed it favorably... go figure. I too take some umbrage with the product endorsements but what can ya do?

hi nj! radishes really don't get any respect. i love horse radish so i guess it's just the first step. i don't know why, but pecans here have gotten expensive. it's crazy considering the amount of pecans can pick up for free. i do wish i had a new york cheesecake tree :)
Nov. 7, 2013 2:30 pm
hi cat! you have been remiss in your MANDATED blogs :) we do share a similar type of humor! poor mike and his door-stops, he sure makes an involved, attractive, and drunk door-stop though. i gotta jog over to your blog and see whats been shaking!
Nov. 7, 2013 2:34 pm
hi raedwulf! hey that 260 v8 really was a v8...i'm pretty sure. rare car now!!lol, about your radish recipe. i make the slow-cooked cream cheese turkey from here...these folks love it...tastes like greasy turkey to me. i agree the folks must post their blogs...advertising pays the way here.

About Me
i enjoy cooking. the wife considers it a chore. i hate yard work. she loves it. we mesh. i love bass fishing, reading, music, baseball, college football and my family.
My favorite things to cook
i love vegetables, soups, and italian cusine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
holidays are a big deal! christmas is my time to shine. i try to add a new recipe each year, but the family demands pretty much the same menu. kinda frustrating!
My cooking triumphs
i cared for my mother in law about 3 months when she had shattered her shoulder. i didn't work, so money was tight. we survived on only wife's paycheck during that time. ma-n-law had diet restrictions. it was difficult to make cheap, nutritious meals everyone would eat. we prospered as a family and learned alot about each other's strenghths and weaknesses.
My cooking tragedies
a stove top fire. i explained that one already. the grill falling over was another one...oops grill season is here! i love the tragedies...those are the ones that i'll always remember!
