Another twist on a favorite.
In high school we had a favorite place to go for lunch, or I should say two places, one was Knox’s (great burgers, no longer there) and the other was the Round House. Yeah, the restaurant was/is round. My sister and I loved their “combination salad” which consisted of head lettuce, tomato, boiled egg with cottage cheese and covered with a French dressing that was so good I still make that salad for my husband and myself.
I haven’t met anyone that has ever eaten cottage cheese and boiled egg on a salad and […]

Good with chicken too!
Have you had a big reunion yet for either high school or college? My 50th high school union was last year and this year was my husband’s (yes, I have to admit I was a cougar even before that was even a word referring to marrying a younger man; he’s only 9 months younger though.) and I have to say it was so much fun seeing everyone. Our high school, (in Caruthersville ) back then may have had 500 students total, so it was easy to know just about everyone in the whole school.

On a trip to Savannah back in the spring we tasted some wonderful southern food. I made a list of several I wanted to try and recreate and I’ve already attempted a few of them successfully.
My twin, Terry, and Pauletta and Judy (high school friends) had a great time sampling some of the local cuisine. We had so many different things to choose from that it was a challenge every meal for me to make up my mine on what to order.
Belford’s Grill was our last place to eat before catching a ride to the airport and […]

Take advantage of your summer harvest.
I’ve been doing a lot of pickling lately; first my roasted yellow pickled beets and now this pickled yellow squash.
Even if you don’t have a garden you can take advantage of finding great deals on produce and then canning some to enjoy in the winter. I didn’t find a great deal at the farmer’s market; their yellow squash was $3.00/lb. I bought one pound of their squash and then went to my HEB and bought 6 lbs. at $.99/lb. Now that’s a deal.
My mother and dad both use to can things. […]

All those fresh summer vegetables in one salad.
Don’t you just love the taste of arugula? The peppery taste is delicious mixed with tomatoes and I love it on sandwiches in place of lettuce or sautéed a little bit and put into an omelette.
This salad was another idea I had one night when faced with a refrigerator full of vegetables and a brand new package of arugula and after looking on the internet I found others had beaten me to the punch or should I say, recipe. I used Bobby Flay’s Vinaigrette recipe but my own farm truck […]
