Keep Calm and Coup D’etat

Well it’s that time of year again: No, not for dog shaming:


And let me point out that it is NEVER appropriate to shame anyone for anything, regardless of whether they are guilty or innocent of the Trumped-up charges®.

Anyway, it’s time for our annual Christmas Recipe Exchange. Which is a generic term for sharing Christmas/Hanukah/Festivus recipes/traditions/stories. I’ve already shared most of my favorite things in the “feeds a yooge crowd” category – Mom’s Goulash and White Bean Chili – butt here’s one more “souper” easy one that will keep your tree trimmers and tipplers at bay:

Mom’s Souper Simple Sloppy Joes

3# hamburger

2 cans of Campbell’s Chicken Gumbo Soup

2 tbs Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp yellow mustard

1 bottle ketchup (more or less to taste)

Dash or two of Tabasco sauce or cayenne pepper (optional)

Brown hamburger and drain. Add all of the rest of the ingredients, stir well to combine and simmer for about 15 minutes. Serve on hamburger buns.

It’s one of those recipes that was probably born in a corporate kitchen sometime back in the 60’s butt remains in my power rotation because, well - quick, easy, and everybody loves them. How can you have too many recipes like that?

Then last year we switched gears to highlight cute food like snow weasels, mice and penguins:

 Well, you tell me: it’s your call. Just be sure to use your power wisely, perhaps by joining Trumps Army of Davids:


I see his army showed up last night at the rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan.


That is all troops, you may now carry on.
