Tried 'em all and buy a new brand whenever and wherever I find it. IMO best Andouille remains Country Pleasin'. Have no association at all with Cooper's.

Looks yummy. I too prefer the Country Pleasin sausage.

Country Pleasin has an incredible butcher shop with high quality fresh pork and beef on 49 South, but they still put nitrites, nitrates in their sausage, so I pass on that and buy other brands preserved with celery extract.

Please use a larger type on the recipes. I love to cook and would love to get these recipes, but they are too small for me to read comfortably.

Beans, beans, the wonderful fruit;
The more you eat, the more you toot.
The more you toot, the better you feel;
So eat those beans for every meal!

You don't need to search for anything. It's right there! You can also go to browser settings and adjust the screen zoom; or, use windows magnifier.

But, asking the publisher to change the way documents are published is nonsensical.

Among legumes, black beans & pinto beans are most gassy and red beans close. Black eyed peas are least gassy, so I experiment substituting them into Mexican dishes instead of pinto and black beans. The black eyes work best if meat is pork and are incredible with poblanos, jalapeños, onions plus Mexican spices.

"But, asking the publisher to change the way documents are published is nonsensical."

What's nonsensical is assuming it could be the duty of a publisher to correct the super-small font being submitted by a contributor.

I'm on a desktop computer and see none of what you've mentioned.

Stuff About ZeroBear PolyBear said...

Folks, The way Kingfish posts my stuff is the only way he can, because of the number of photos I use. Very few blog posting options will allow what he accomplishes and I appreciate him allowing me to post my stuff here.

As others have said, the program he uses (Scribd) has a full screen option in the bottom right hand corner of the enclosed box. Click on this and you will get larger print that will be easier to read.

I am sorry the print is small, but there alsolutely is a way to make it large by switching to full screen option of Scribd.

Regarding the open gaps between the words and photos, I will work harder on future posts to make the photos a little smaller so there are fewer open gaps from page to page in the post.

It will get better. Maybe.

That's Why They Make Beano... said...

I hate when people suggest ways to improve on a recipe I'm gracious enough to provide. It always happens. Ahem, 4:34 and others.

I've used my long deceased grandmother's baked bean recipe for decades. Once gifted it to a friend on the occasion of his wedding, along with a kitchen appliance. He went about changing the recipe up and had the gall to tell me how to improve on her recipe. I never spoke to him again and hope he has unending gas.

Country Pleasin' andouille is really good, but it's not actually smoked to any great degree. If using it definitely use liquid smoke. I like to take some beans after they're done, and run them through the food processor and add them back into the whole cooked beans. That adds a creamy texture to the mouthfeel of the whole beans.

Thanks, Zerobear - this is very similar to what I make, but the liquid smoke and sugar will be a nice addition - plus some ham hocks! We crumble cornbread in if it's liquid enough and splash on more hot sauce. Great recipe!

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
