I could easily see it was super juicy!!!:drool

 

LOL---I used to eat like that when I was a kid of your age, and even up to 60, but can't do it any more.

 

Enjoy piggin' out while you can!!Thumbs Up

Ok I admit I was a hog & ate the rest of the loin today so in order to have enough food to carry me through the weekend I had to make something else today - I began pondering   :33: 

 

 

While I was thinking I kept going with the pumpernickel rye bread.

 

 

 

Here is the starter I got going yesterday afternoon with the rest of the ingredients.

 

 

 

 

 

Here it is all mixed up & after a LOT of kneading.

 

 

 

 

 

Oiled & in a mixing bowl to rise...

 

 

 

It was at this time that I decided to use the rest of my dry cured country ham I was saving (I only have one left now  :frown:)  It was worth it though because I used it to make a batch of old fashioned country ham pot pie  :icon_mrgreen:

 

 

 

 

I put the rest of my country ham in for a couple hours

 

 

 

 

 

to get some great flavored broth.

 

 

 

 

 

While that was cooking the bread had completed the rise & was ready to punch down

 

 

 

 

 

& put in the loaf pans for the second rise.

 

 

 

 

 

By this time the ham was done so I took it out, peeled some potatoes, put them in the ham broth to cook &

 

 

 

 

 

started on the noodles. This is all the water I use in my noodles. I make up the rest with the great flavored ham broth - it makes for some mouth watering noodles!  :drool

 

 

 

 

 

I pulled the ham off the bone & chunked it up. The potatoes got done so I took them out as I finished the noodles.

 

 

 

 

 

Some noodles being made up

 

 

 

 

 

& added to the pot as I get them cut...

 

 

 

 

 

Then they cook on their own just like everything else to take on even more flavor  :32:

 

 

 

 

 

The bread finished its second rise

 

 

 

 

 

& I pushed it down for one final rise - the one on the right looks goofy but it will come right back with this last rise.

 

 

 

 

 

Final rise done & egg wash prepared.

 

 

 

 

 

I gave them a generous helping of oats

 

 

 

 

 

& put them in the oven.

 

 

 

 

 

The noodles finished cooking so I added the ham & potatoes back in & left everything meld together while the bread baked.

 

 

 

 

 

Bread out of the oven & cooling...

 

 

 

 

 

 

I decided to have a fresh slice.

 

 

 

 

 

I hadn't made this recipe in a while but it turned out really good.

 

 

 

 

 

Not bitter like most store bought versions are...

 

 

 

 

 

Close up view...

 

 

 

 

 

By this time the ham pot pie was ready to eat so...

 

 

 

 

 

I got myself a nice portion & chowed down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nice close look at the country ham pot pie... Yummmmm....   :drool

 

 

Now I am set with some good food to carry me through the weekend & can spend however much time is needed at my grandma's place  :icon_mrgreen:  If I'm not around have a good weekend everyone  :beercheer:

 That's good to hear man.

Thanks Bear - I'll keep that in mind  :biggrin:  Sometimes I just can't help it & by the time I realize what's going on there isn't enough left to bother saving so I figure I might as well just finish it & be done with it  th_anim_burp.gif     It probably happens a little more than it should!  th_dunno-1[1].gif

Thank you for your response Smoking B. You learned very well! Your cheesecake looks luxurious & I keep looking at it.

post #33 of 77

Is it a guarded recipe for ur cheesecake?

post #34 of 77

I've lurked around here off and on for a while but I had to join to say that that pot pie looks wonderful! That's the way my grandmother always made it too. Did you use a smoked ham to make it? Your breads, cheesecake and everything else you made looks incredible too!!

Thanks man - she did pretty good these last few days  :yahoo:

 

Trotters & noodles does sound good! I actually have a few hocks from a butchering party a couple months ago when it was still cold. I smoked them & have them in the freezer. I'll get them out & make something with them for you this week  :beercheer:

Thank you  :smile:  Yes I did use a smoked ham for the pot pie. It was a dry cured ham that I made.
