OK, I have gave this some thought, if we can get some "oysters" for the next muster, I need to make some soup for the same meal, could do a tribute to the Vaquero (Not not the Ruger one) and do menudo. ;D

And why do we need soup someone might ask,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,wel look at my sig, the one line is Latin, it's a sayin' as Gus would say. ;D

Can be translated several ways, but the one I like is "everything from soup to nu,,,,,,,,,,,," er never mind. ::)

Jeff, How am I gonna learn about C&B revolvers and how to load em and shoot em.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Pard.  However, I'll bet there was some jaspers that WERE able to attend who know as much - or more, than me.
 ;D

But I'm goin' on record here:  I don't want to be on River City John's "deep doo-doo" list - or any others, so I'm already workin' out details. 


 ??? I wonder whut the gas prices will be NEXT year ... seein' as how they're a couple bucks cheaper than a couple months ago!


And th' ONLY nuts I wanna eat better say "Planters" on the can!
 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

NO oysters fer me, mi compadres'!

Nope, it's good any time, but I think if we do it, we need some sort of soup with that meal. ;D


Whut about peanut soup?  I had some, from the King's Arms Inn in Williamsburg (VA.) once, and it was GREAT!!

Gotta remember them Chinee railroad workers prolly brought some peanut recipes out west.  Wheather er not they got their hands on any peanuts out here is a differnt question.  They worked the mines too, I'm sure they had some good cozies.

Maybe...
According to the Peanut Institute the peanut plant is thought to have originated in Brazil or Peru. Portuguese explorers transplanted it to Africa, and from there it was brought to America as an inexpensive, high-protein staple, later to be consumed by soldiers during the Civil War.  Many pre-Columbian cultures such as the Moche, depicted peanuts in their art. Evidence demonstrates that peanuts were domesticated in prehistoric times in Peru. Archeologists have thus far dated the oldest specimens to about 7,600 years before the present

Peanuts are grown mainly in eight states: Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma and Texas.

Got busy with a customer and cut it short.  Have not seen any referance to it on the Northern Plains.  Perhaps among some of the Black homesteaders, but of course the peanuts would have to have been brought in, so most likey for a treat rather than more steady like down south.

But I don't like peanut soup, how about we spit the differance, use Legumes and make split pea and ham. ;D

Don't forget the peanut is a member of the Legume family.

Yep, part of the comprimise, use a different one. ;D

Now if anyone wants to bring salted in the shell peanuts to eat and throw the shells in the fire when the cookin' is done, go for it.

Ain't it at Camp Legume where the Marines git trained?

(No offense meant, pards!  I had the extreme pleasure of attending M1A1 Tank Master Gunner School with 4 of our Brother Marines.  It's an Army school that a "few of the best" get sent to, because the Corps doesn't have a big enough program needed to field their own school.  They were sharp. And fun.)

I have references to the post trader at Ft. Hartsuff having oysters (saltwater) shipped here for Christmas. I would think that peanuts might have been on the shipping list too. I'll try to find it and share it.

Real salt water oysters were a common item shipped in all over the west.  They were considered more of a delicacy than they are today.  Besides the calf fries which are 'spossed to taste like oysters, often Salsfy often called oyster plant were used as a subsitute when the real thing was not availible.

I am rather loathe to disrupt the current culinary discussion ..... ;)

However, I finally received copies of the pictures taken my "batman", Roger, and thought I'd post a few of them ..... 

(Turns out he was waiting to give them to me on a CD for my birthday.   Also, he obviously took very much to heart my comments about not having very many pictures of me actually shooting at past Musters ..... although it may not look like it, I've actually had to eliminate most such pictures from this selection!   ::)  )

(Click thumbnails to enlarge ....)
