Mr. Big Food made the variation for me. I do not care for peas all that much. This was last night’s supper. After the steak is browned in the iron skillet, and the remaining ingredients added, it bakes for two hours, affording Mr. Big Food and I the opportunity to fix ourselves an adult beverage,
Yes. Yes. I’ll clean the stove tomorrow. And then you wait around for two hours while it bakes in a low temperature oven. Believe it or not, I found more blackeyed peas while ripping out the plants. Waste not, want not. I don’t subscribe to Oxford American. Recipe to follow.
Someone else did that. Thank you, Someone Else!~~ As long time readers know, Friday is ‘Venture off The Farm, Go to Starkvegas Day.’ And although it didn’t work out quite as I had planned– I was running behind and didn’t get a single shot of Dunn (Main) Street– I did manage to snap a photo
Dang good food for a Friday night supper. I’m not kidding. This has got to be one of the best chicken salads I’ve ever had. We substituted New Zealand Spinach– which I picked after we got home from Starkvagas– for iceberg lettuce, and used the California Red French Dressing Mr. Big Food had made a
Last night’s supper– so I may update with a photo of leftover dilled pot roast. This is a slow cooker meal, served over noodles. It cooks for 11 hours. At about hour #2 you can begin to enjoy what you’ll be really enjoying later. Recipe below. DILLED POT ROAST 6-8 servings 2-2 ½ lb
Sorry no photo. This is one of the best lasagnes ever. Mr. Big Food substituted homemade Italian sausage for ground beef, and of course he used homemade stewed tomatoes rather that canned, and all fresh seasonings. If we were to have a lasagne contest, this would be my #1. Recipe below. BAKED LASAGNA SUPREME
Zucchini nut bread– without nuts– slathered with cream cheese This is one delicious zucchini bread! Quite different than the others we’ve baked in that it’s lighter, both in color and texture. Perfect for a snack with a cup of iced coffee, as the recipe begins: “Serve this marvelous bread in many different ways: hot with
Last evening as we were preparing a truly delicious– and simple– meal, I looked in the pantry and asked Mr. Big Food, “Do you know we still have dried lima beans from last year’s garden?” Mr Big Food responded, “Yes. Good thing, too.” ~~ Via Instapundit: CHANGE: Corn and soybeans hit record highs, stir food
For the third night in a row– in JULY in MISSISSIPPI– I’ve opened one of the Den windows. And it rained!
Rocky Missy And now… doggy nap time.
Poor quality photo. Sorry. She won’t sit still in front of the camera and I have a hard time changing the settings in the dark. Who here remembers the seat of your pants light speed to sound speed to distance conversion factor, with respect to lightening & thunder and miles? See a flash. Start counting,
While on a break from garden work, I came across this: One of the many great things about Paul Johnson’s magisterial A History of the American People is that he begins that history in the Sixteenth Century. There was an identifiable, culturally distinguishable American People long before there was a Revolutionary War, a Constitution, or
and it was over 80 degrees– in the shade– before 8:30. We have yard/garden work to do. We’ll be taking a lot of breaks!
Over a month ago, I realized I didn’t know where my Little Orange Book was. I looked, I asked, and yes, I accused. Who would have stolen my Little Orange Book from me? Today, I am pleased to report that my Little Orange Book has been found and retrieved from behind the bookshelf thanks to
There are times I need them to calm down but don’t want to restrain/restrict their movements too much. It’s their attitude, not their behavior, I want to affect. And I want them to learn. Toward this end, we’ve tried a number of behavior modifications treats things over these last few months. The one that works
down the Natchez Trace Parkway between Tupelo and Mathiston. We’ll see some lovely countryside and some of the damage done to it by tornadoes in April, 2011. A few tings before we get going… 1) No commercial vehicles allowed. But recreational vehicles are okay. 2) Speed limit 50mph. But 60mph is okay. 3) Guns are
Check yourself, your family and your pets regularly for ticks. If someone gets bit, ice the bite and call a vet or doctor, they may want to check for lyme disease or other infections. At AccuWeather. Yesterday, as I was ripping out the last of yellow squash, I noticed a tick on my leg– a
I am doing everything I can think of to do to help Rocky continue to assert his dominance over Missy. [Diagram that!] It ain’t easy. She outweighs him by roughly 20 pounds, now. When they play tug-of-war he still wins. He’s a pretty smart powerful little dog. But at some point, she will learn
The silk is almost as pink as… these zinnias!
It’s got a ways to go.
