Greetings to all, in the snowmageddon, whether it actually arrived, or blew a snow kiss your way, and those enjoying the warmer weather.

To Judy in Alaska, many thanks for the sauerkraut salad recipe. One very hot summer, I used my own homemade sauerkraut to make a salad just like this one. Day to day, I had trouble keeping supplies in the 'fridge, with 2 young teens, myself and husband in the household.

There was also always a big jug of gazpacho, that also disappeared quickly. Come winter, it was sauerkraut soup, and always some fresh made whole wheat rolls. It didn't matter how much I made, there were never leftovers.

I worked part time in a road house pub about that time. I mentioned the lovely sauerkraut soup I made at home. One of the other shift cooks demanded a sample, then more. A couple of quarts of it disappeared in short order!
For those who think they do not like sauerkraut, or are not sure, you really do not know what you are missing!

Madeira Sauce Recipe

4 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup dry white wine
1 quart lightly salted stock
2 tablespoons concentrated tomato puree
1/4 cup mushrooms
1/2 cup Madeira
1 small carrot
1 medium sized onion
few sprigs parsley
1 sprig thyme
1/2 bay leaf

Dice carrot and onion fine and cook in 3 tablespoons butter in a saucepan big enough to contain all the sauce. Brown the vegetables lightly, add flour, blend well and cook this roux slowly and gently, stirring constantly until it acquires a light golden colour. Allow to cool, and dilute with white wine, added little by little. Add 3 1/2 cups stock, tomato puree, parsley, thyme and bay leaf. Add mushrooms, washed and chopped fine and browned lightly in butter. Bring to a boil, stirring with a sauce whisk. Simmer gently for 45 minutes. From time to time, skim off the fat. Strain through a fine strainer into another saucepan, pressing out all the juices. Reheat, bring to a boil slowly and cook for 30 minutes, adding from time to time 1 or 2 tablespoons of the remaining stock. Strain through a cloth and put back on the fire. Cook down to about 2 cups. Add Madeira. Simmer for five minutes.

This is an easy and versatile recipe, as you can use so many different spice mixtures or blends. Whole chickens often seem to be on sale in our area. The recipe has been around for years. Any leftovers can be used to make chicken salad, sandwiches or soup.

Beer Can Chicken Recipe

1 whole chicken fryer
2 tablespoon lemon pepper or other seasoning or spice blend
1 12 oz opened can of favorite beer

Place 1 tablespoon of the lemon pepper in to the open can, then insert the can into the largest cavity of the chicken, making sure that the can opening is facing upright.

Place chicken with can still standing upright into a roasting pan and sprinkle chicken with the remaining lemon pepper. Wrap with aluminum foil and bake for approximately 20 minutes per pound plus and additional 20 minutes at 375°F.

Remove the foil covering during the last 30 minutes to allow chicken to brown.

This may be cooked on a grill or in the oven. Use any type of seasoning desired. This is a versatile recipe and the chicken always turns out juicy and tender.
