Thanks Sammie, sounds good, will have to try it, with chicken, of course.

AJ, when will the cookbooks be available, and where might we be able to pick one up?

Hopefully, in time for Christmas gift giving. I'll have copies here at the paper.

This is the third one we Parrotheads (Jimmy Buffett fans) have done. I never expected to use the first two so much, but I find they're my "go to" recipes.

The recipes are a lot of fun, plus very tasty.

Thanks for asking.

This is for one of our own who is facing a heart transplant.

Here's a link to the website:

Thanks AJ. I will want one for sure. They will make good Christmas gifts too. Please let us know when you get them in.

Do any of ya'll like marinated olives? There's a recipe in the new coobook that is fabulous. I've made it three times lately and everyone has really liked them. You use any kind of olive you like, add orange juice, lemon juice, orange peel and lemon peel, oregano, garlic and red pepper flakes. They'll keep forever. Best served a room temperature.

With the holidays coming, they would make a great -- and surprising - appetizer -- for family get togethers and holiday parties.

I'll be happy to post it if anyone's interested. Yum-o.

Phabulous Marinated Olives
Vicki Britt - Fort Worth (the lady who needs the heart transplant)

5 cups assorted olives - black, green, whatever you like (I've made them with a mixture of black and green, but this time, we didn't have any black ones in the pantry, so I went all green and they're just as good.)
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 T grated lemon rind
1 T fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. grated orange rind (I use a little more)
1 T fresh orange juice
1 to 2 T minced garlic (I use 3-4 cloves, which is a little more - depending on the size of the cloves - because I love garlic)
1/2 tsp. dried crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp. dried oregano

(She also has 1 tsp fennel seeds listed on the original recipe, but I don't like licorice, so I skip this step.)

Drain olives and put them in a zip lock bag. Add everything else. Chill for a couple of hours - or not. Vicki serves them at room temperature. She also recommends olives without pits, but I've used ones with seeds in them and they tasted great. I'm eating them as I type. Yum-o.

This recipe keeps for ever in the fridge. Enjoy!

Thanks so much AJ!! Now I won't have to go to the VERY expensive deli (that is a little out of the way too!) to buy these marinated olives! We looove the combo of the olives, citrus, garlic and red pepper! :silly:

The first time I made them, I zested the fruit instead of grating it. Grating it is much better, both for taste and appearance ... they look almost festive with the grated rinds .... I think they would be really great for a holiday table.

You can use more red pepper flakes, but I would advise letting them sit for a day or two and tasting them before adding more heat.

I use the leftover dressing for a marinade ... it's really good on lamb chops.

Enjoy!

I just made another batch of the olives. This time, I added some extra citrus (I had more than 5 cups of olives) and I found some stuffed with jalapeno ... I also added just a dash of Tabasco.

The smell is divine. It fills up the whole house.

My brother says we should market them ... ;)
