Pimento Cheese, the most beloved sandwich spread.
What was your sandwich of choice when you were a kid? I could never turn down a bologna sandwich on WHITE bread with mayonnaise or mustard and a handful of potato chips added before putting on the top slice of bread and then it gets a good press down to crunch the chips up. Or, one of my top picks would have to be a pimento cheese sandwich on toast with a side of Fritos and dill pickle slices. I was never a peanut butter and jelly kid. I don’t think I […]

Isn’t this a beautiful spiralized salad.
Wow, my blog caught up with me. I had this salad ready to post but had not written anything about it. We had an earlier than I thought trip to Austin to welcome our new grandson (#6). Our daughter was in labor all of about 30 minutes before delivering little Frankie. He’s just the cutest thing.
Then we had a trip to Missouri to check on my mother-in-law and spent a week there, all the time I never looked back at my post to see what was coming up.
So, here’s my newest salad […]

Who doesn’t love chicken wings?
I love, love, love chicken wings. Put a bone in it and I like it. Pork chop bones; great to try and get all the meat off it, chicken necks (yes, fried chicken necks; that’s the best part of the chicken.), and those crispy little wings. My favorite part of the wing is actually the flat part and not the little drummy part.
Seems like years ago when people made buffalo wings they put a flour coating on them kind of like KFC and then I started seeing “naked” wings advertised. I don’t like […]

What is easier than a stir-fry?
This dish started off as a sous vide steak. What’s a sous vide steak you say? Look at the link I just gave you because Chef Steps can explain it better than I can.
The Joule sous vide was a xmas gift from son, Scott and so far I’ve cooked an egg, steaks two different times and some coconut custards. In case you didn’t read the definition, sous vide is a way of cooking food in a bag in water. The pan or even plastic container is set on the counter, not the […]

Feel better with some soup!
I love making soup and cool weather or not, if I feel the urge, there may be a pot of something on my stove.
It’s a wonder we don’t stay sick all the time here in Texas. I just took a look at the weather channel for a 30 day plus outlook. Well, our temperatures may be 60’s, 70’s and 80’s for the next three months. We were 80 here just a couple of weeks ago and next week it’s up and down all week. The freezes we had this winter killed about 1/4 […]
