Total Eclipse…

 As the day approaches I have noticed many signs in store windows closing for the day or partial day?! So, if you must get out and get the items you need go today if possible, who knows what will be open or closed? Bit odd to me.

Schools in our area are keeping the children late (with parental agreement)-I don’t think so… everyone has an opinion on the subject matter what’s yours? Just another day in paradise, making history, not caring one iota? Indoor observer, outdoor observer? What’s your thoughts?

Hope you have a splendid Sunday!

Cucumbers to Pickles!

The baby cucumbers (as I love to call them) have been so plentiful in my garden. I have been making pickles, some more pickles and pickles! LOL These are seasoned garlic ones (with sliced sweet white onions) and are they ever delicious! Pickling juices of many varieties are so fun to make. I like sweet and sour bread sliced pickles as well. They’re great on a sandwich.

They stand well in the refrigerator, tightly jarred for a few weeks!

Make yourself some you’ll be happy you did!

"Cheffie Cooks" Favorite Original Recipes

win_20161106_14_33_40_pro-3A really reasonably cut of beef that we just love. I use a season mix of onion salt, garlic powder, black pepper, cumin and rub the outside of the Flank Steak (about 5 pounds), place on top of an aluminum foil  lined baking pan, drizzle with olive oil and worcestershire sauce and place under the broiler, keeping the oven door ajar. we love new red potatoes with rosemary butter as a side dish, and a slaw salad. Make any side dishes you love!

Cut the Flank Steak (after it rests) on the bias (against the grain) with a sharp knife.

Its a truly flavorful meal! Hope you enjoy.

Citrus Frozen Fruit Pops

I made a huge batch of popsicles and every single one is gone! The are so refreshing in the hot months. I made lemon-lime-orange, cherry and pineapple.

They are so inexpensive and easy to make. The molds are ones my mom used years ago and I bought the wooden popsicle sticks and just let them freeze overnight. Tart, sweet and delicious!

Give them a try you’ll love them too.

Fluffy Mashed Potatoes

Ever wonder how many dishes go with creamy mashed potatoes? I do! They are a favorite here. Add butter, sour cream or cream cheese, milk, cream, s & p, whip them until fluffy. They disappear in no time!

I have tried every pre-packaged mashed potato on the market and nothing compares to the real thing. Take the time to peel, dice and boil. you’ll be glad you did!
