  •  Skunk Florentine (20+ / 0-)


    2 (10-ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach
    3 small to medium skunks (about 4 pounds), cleaned, de-glanded, skinned, cooked, boned, and shredded
    2 (10 3/4-ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
    1 cup mayonnaise
    1 cup sour cream
    2 cup grated sharp Cheddar
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1 teaspoon curry powder
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 cup dry white wine
    1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
    1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
    2 tablespoons butter


    Remove the outer wrappers from the box of spinach. Open 1 end of each box. Microwave on full power for 2 minutes, until thawed. Drain the spinach and put into a large bowl. Add the shredded skunk.

    In a medium bowl, combine the soup, mayonnaise, sour cream, Cheddar, lemon juice, curry powder, salt and pepper, to taste, and wine. Whisk together to make a sauce. Pour the sauce over the spinach and skunk. Mix well with a spatula.

    Place the mixture into an 11 by 7-inch casserole dish or 2 (9-inch) square disposable aluminum foil pans that have been sprayed with vegetable oil cooking spray. Pat down evenly and smooth with a spatula. Combine the Parmesan and bread crumbs and sprinkle over the top. Dot with the butter.

    Wrap the uncooked casserole securely with plastic wrap, then with aluminum foil. Place each pan into a plastic freezer bag and seal. Place into freezer.

    Allow casserole to thaw 24 hours in refrigerator. When ready to bake, remove the plastic wrap and foil. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes until bubbly.

      be the standard comment people would enter in response to troll diaries. It was a good practice, as at least something useful could be obtained from going to the diary.

      And it's nice to see tradition maintained; maybe one day fully revived.

        I ran out of good recipes years ago.

          (scale it up for Costco bags of pecans)

          Preheat oven to 350

          2.5  Tbs butter
          2     Tbs fresh rosemary, finely chopped
          1     tsp salt
          1/4  tsp cayenne (I usually do a little more)
          3     cups pecan halves

          Melt butter, then stir in rosemary, salt and cayenne.  

          In a large bowl, pour butter mixture over pecans and toss until they are evenly coated.

          Spread in a single layer on baking sheet(s) and bake at 350 until nut meats  are golden brown (look at some of the broken ones).  Usually 10-15 minutes, depending on the oven.

          Let cool and keep in an airtight container.  Yummy warm or cool.  If you've had them for a week or so, you can reheat them at 325 or so for about 5-7 minutes to recrunchify them.

          For my own indulgence, I usually make a large batch then put aside a small portion for extra browning - dark brown, about thirty seconds shy of burning.  Those are super great on salads.

          I did these at Xmas - they are fabulous!  I don't even particularly like rosemary, but it's perfect.

          Cats are better than therapy, and I'm a therapist.
