Another holiday, come and gone… seems like yesterday when I told my husband that I would be on board to put up the Christmas decorations early. Had we not done it then, they would be late now; how fast time flies. Our Thanksgiving holiday was great, as always, and in this glorious season, I’m making […]
Last Monday, I spend a good portion of the day at the Fulton County Fair. I will have to say that this is a very large county fair. It is also a real county fair, with all of the farm implements, crops and of course animals. There are food merchants galore, but I want to
I’ve been under the weather the past few days with a cold that just wouldn’t give up. My nose has finally stopped run 24 hours a day, and my throat is allowing me to talk with a normal voice again. No fever, no body ache, just headache, sore throat and a nose that wouldn’t quit.
My husband and I have been enjoying this snack lately, and it’s healthy and easy to make. You’ll need: Apples – Type is up to you – we think Granny Smith tastes best for this. I also tried it with Gala apples which are good, but I don’t recommend softer varieties like Red Delicious. Peanut

Saute onions and peppers when tender add broth and beef heat through. Drain, serve with tortillas, shredded cheese and salsa.
I thought I could just add a comment about my sandwiches this week, but why waste a good blog post. 😉 I’m in the mood for something different today, so today’s sandwich has no meat. I picked up some Portabella Mushrooms (the big ones), a sweet onion, tomatoes, and Munster cheese. For bread I
Now I want a sandwich. I’m watching a show about sandwiches. Roast beef of all kinds and now a ground beef sandwich that isn’t a burger. It looks like a sloppy joe without the sauce. Just cooked ground beef. It looks good. It is just amazing the number of ways you can make beef
Yes, I’ve heard that reaction to sushi on occasion. I think it came from my children. For the most part when they were growing up, and for some even now, they never wanted to try new food. From the limited diet of their childhood (not that limited, I did experiment in the kitchen), I have
