      Is this "T gators" white sauce ?

      Alabama White Sauce
      Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q in Decatur, Alabama, is credited with introducing this mayo-based barbecue sauce to the world. Our recipe is loosely based on the version chef Sean Brock serves at his restaurant Husk in Charleston, South Carolina

        little carrot shredded
        in a skillet cook all that till the onions done with olive oil
        Put potato in micro wave to cook cool and cut up into cubes
        milk and butter to cover it.............1/2 & 1/2 can take the place of milk.

            He just does it by feel. He cooks the first things in a big pot and then cover it all with the liquid stuff. Usually ends up with half a gallon or so. He is like me he dont measure much just goes by how it looks................Dad's fish chowder I guess

                  Crock-Pot Chili - the absolute best way to make chili. - Chili takes time at low temps to meld all of the flavors together. Also, chili is better after it has sat a couple, or more days (in the fridge of course)

                  Prep time: 15 minutes
                  Cook time: 7 hours +

                  1 lb ground beef (you can use more/less depending on your liking. I usually use lean ground turkey, once it's cooked you cannot tell the difference)
                  1 Green Bell Pepper (Red, Orange, or Yellow can be substituted - this will make it a lil sweeter and add color)
                  1 Small Onion (I typically use yellow)
                  1 Large can Bush's Chili Beans 27 oz. (or 2 small cans 16 oz) - I use the mild pinto's in chili sauce cause my kids don't eat really spicy food
                  2 15.5 oz cans kidney beans (either color)
                  1 28 oz. can Whole peeled tomatoes
                  2 14.5 oz. cans Diced tomatoes
                  2 packs McCormick Chili seasoning - Original (this can be changed to your favorite chili seasoning mix - I like it hotter, but the kids don't, so I add heat to mine after cooking)
                  Optional for heat - Jalapeno fresh diced (to taste)

                  1. turn the Crock-Pot on low
                  2. brown the ground meat in a skillet, drain (or you can add the fat, if there is not too much)
                  3. while the meat is browning, dice the bell pepper and onion into 1/4" squares, and open all cans

                  place the onion and bell pepper on the bottom of the Crock-Pot
                  add the rest of the ingredients in a layering method - usually I'll add a can or two of beans on top of the pepper & onion, then some tomatoes, then some of the browned meat, and then a packet of seasoning, then more beans, tomatoes, etc... - do not drain the beans/tomatoes, add all of the liquid from the cans to the mix, this way no additional water is needed (which dilutes the flavor)
                  I do not stir mine until it has cooked a good 4 hours or so, if I stir it at all.

                  The Crock-Pot should stay on low and the lid should not be removed more than once during cooking
                  It should cook at least 8 hours to meld the flavors together. It will be ready after 4 hours if you're in a hurry - the smell will drive you crazy.

                  For those who don't like to clean - :raisehand: - Reynolds makes Slow Cooker bags to line the pot keeping it clean. You can pull the bag out and put in a bowl in the fridge if there is any left over and store the Crock-Pot away, or reuse. A box of 4 bags costs about $2.

                  I make a lot of soups/stews this way during the fall & winter, set it up in the morning before work and it's ready when I get home.

                    Chili is one of the very few good things about winter. You need to post your recipe on our Official Pepperplate Recipe Webpage

                      Best thing about yesterday (since the game was no fun) was we cooked catfish for my mother-in-law's birthday. Had a mix of filets and whole channel cats. Followed the recipe for the fried fish (lemon juice and Everglades seasoning) but crusted it with Louisiana mix. Three gashes of each side of the channel cats and all turned out nice, firm, and crispy. Made both homemade tartar sauce and cilantro-lime crema (in the recipes) and both paired nicely with the fish. Even fried a pint of oysters as an appetizer. Had fresh home fries, cheese grits, cole slaw, and hush puppies. Little Miss c2 made a sour cream layer cake with chocolate icing from scratch. All in all, we had a really good meal and were able to forget about the disaster in Arkansas!

                        I will try that this winter. I love some good chili. I also make lots of homemade soup in the winter. I experiment with different meats and veggies.

                            • 1 1/4 cups uncooked regular grits
                            • 2 cups chicken broth
                            • 2 cups milk

                            • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
                            • 1/2 cup butter, cut into cubes
                            • 1 (10 oz) block sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded

                            Instructions
                            1. Bring grits, chicken broth, and next 3 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes or until thickened. Stir in butter and cheeses until melted.
                            2. Gradually stir about one-fourth of hot grits mixture into eggs; add egg mixture to remaining hot grits mixture, stirring constantly. Pour grits mixture into a lightly greased 2 1/2 quart baking dish.
