Awesome! I had a lot of fun! None of us caught any fish, but we saw 2 bald eagles, so that kind of made up for it.

Hey guys, I made Scorpio's "stuff with the hashbrowns" last night. It was really good! I made a couple of changes to it, because I didn't have exactly what it called for. I used a can of mexicorn instead of regular corn, next time I'll use 2 cans. I didn't know what size bag hashbrowns to use. I had a bag of 1 1/2 lb., used that and used 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup with 1 can milk. I cooked it on high for 4 hours in my crockpot. The guys said it was a keeper! I think so too!

I used 2 cans of soup 'cause I was afraid it would be too dry with all those hashbrowns. Now I've forgotten what page it was on, I think it was 49.

Hey guys! I just got back from the farmer's market and completely gorged myself on home grown heirloom tomatoes. Here's my recipe:

Tossed Caprese Salad

4 ripe, fresh tomatoes(heirloom have the best flavor)
6 oz real mozzarella cheese (the kind sold in balls)
6-10 fresh basil leaves chopped
1 t good sea salt
1 t fresh black pepper
2 T barrel aged balsamic vinegar
2 T garlic infused olive oil

Cut tomatoes into quarters, remove most seeds, then continue to cut into bite sized pieces. Sprinkle chopped tomatoes with sea salt, place in container with airtight lid (I used a 1 quart ziplock container with a screw on lid). Cut mozzarella into same bite sized pieces, sprinkle with sea salt and place into container. Chop basil, place in container. Add balsamic vinegar, oil and black pepper to container, place lid on tightly and gently shake for a few seconds. This will coat everything lightly with the balsamic vinegrette. Try not to eat all of it yourself like I did!

You can also make a balsamic vinegrette dressing for regular salads with the same recipe, just leave out the tomatoes and cheese and place the sea salt in the container. It it much tastier than the bottled variety and so easy to make.

note: buy the best balsalmic vinegar you can afford, preferrably barrel aged. It will have a much stronger and sweeter flavor!

Here is something I made up in my head at work today (while I was starving LOL), made for dinner, and it was a hit with the family!

*Easy Recipe
*Total prep time - 5-10 minutes
*Total cooking time - 15-20 minutes

Ingredients
Small flour tortillas
Chicken breast
Italian dressing
Fresh mushrooms
Grape tomatoes
Fresh mozzarella cheese
Garlic salt
Cooking spray

Directions
Saute mushrooms in pan on medium heat with some cooking spray and garlic salt to taste.

In separate frying pan, heat about 1/2 cup of Italian dressing on medium heat and cook chicken breasts in the dressing until juices run clear. (I used the thin-cut chicken breasts and it took about 3-4 minutes per side)

Spoon extra dressing from pan onto cooked chicken, if desired. Add additional dressing as needed while cooking. After chicken cools, cut into strips.

Assemble chicken, mushrooms, chopped grape tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese into flour torillas, fold, and eat!
----------------------------------------------------------

These were awesome and so flavorful!

I already have additional ideas for different vegetable combinations and also different marinades that could be used for the chicken to create a lot of variations on this meal in the future.

I entered the ingredients above into a calorie-counting website (with 1 serving being 2 tortillas, 1/2 chicken breast, 1/4 cup mushrooms, 1/4 cup tomatoes, 2 tsp Italian dressing) and it came out to under 450 calories, so with a side of fruit or additional vegetables, it's a fairly light dinner.

Hey guys, I got some more simple Southern recipes for ya.
remember those snap beans that comes out of your garden?
Well here's an old way of fixing them.

1 to 2 pounds trimmed and washed fresh snap beans or green beans.

1 package of country ham chips or the country ham slices, rinsed.(you have to wash some of the salt off.) it's usually a small package.

5 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered. (Keep them in a bowl with some cold water so they don't turn brown.)

1/2 medium onion, diced.

salt and black pepper to taste.

First, fry up the ham slices or the ham chips in a cast iron frying pan, move to a plate and cover. Cut up the ham slices into small pieces. If you get the ham chips this step in not needed. Next, brown your onions in the ham grease until they start to brown, remove from the heat.

In a large Dutch Oven or a large cooking pot, add the green beans, onions and the ham pieces and all the grease drippings in the pan. (This is for the flavor!) Add enough water to cover, and set on high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium high and cook the beans until they are tender about 1 hr or until they are done. Taste the broth and add the salt/pepper to your liking. Add more water if needed.

Drain off the potatoes and add them to the beans,cook until tender. Turn off the heat and cover the pot,let the beans and potatoes finish cooking for at least 15 or 20 more mins.

I can usually make a meal out of this by itself but they can be served as a side dish for anything else.

This sounds similar to the PA Dutch Ham and Stringbeans.
They use smoked ham hocks, and simmer the hocks in water for an hour. Take out and simmer the same ingredients, then when cooled, cut the hocks into small pieces and put back in the pot.
It's all good!

Last night we went out to dinner for our anniversary. I had a lobster roll, not the cold sandwich type - it was a sourdough roll that had lobster with a white wine, garlic, and parmasean sauce. Creamy but not like alfredo sauce. It is one of the best things I have ever eaten. Anyone have a recipe for a sauce like that?

Yes, I do too. It's great!

I only grow a small patch of corn approx. every 5 yrs. because of how much it takes from the soil, but there was a market that had corn as much as you could fit in a paper grocery bag for a dollar. Got mah frezer filled with enough to last the winter now. Have some yet to dehydrate and eat fresh too. Next best thing to fresh in a long, dreary winter. rockon

 Quoting: Patrick Bateman


I haven't made any BLT's yet this summer. They are so yummy on a hot day, with some corn on the cob and stawberry shortcake for dessert. A roommate of mine shared her strawberry shortcake variation with me years ago and I have used her recipe ever since.

Homemade Strawberry Poundcake
1 pt fresh strawberries sliced
2 tablespoons Amaretto (or any sweet liquor)
1/4 cup sugar
1 t real vanilla extract
slice of pound cake (can be store bought)
vanilla ice cream

Slice strawberries, add amaretto, vanilla and sugar. Stir until sugar melts, then cover and place in the fridge for at least one hour. When berries are ready, in a bowl place a slice of pound cake, a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream and then top with strawberries. Make sure you get some of the sauce from the berries too, that's the good stuff.

I find I like the ice cream more so than whipped cream, and the pound cake absorbs that wonderful sweet strawberry sauce. Easy and yummy. I usually do the strawberries before I start dinner and when dinner is over, its a quick and easy assembly.
