July 4th 2015 Celebration



I’m back……………

Happy 4th to all our loyal followers! We are celebrating with some family members this afternoon and of course cooking on the grill!
Our kitchen counter-tops are finally finished and next week Husband will be doing up an article along with pictures. It came out so, so very beautiful that it looks like a professional job; I’m just so proud of him and the patience he had in doing it……


We’re going to do a couple of different things today and one of them is a pasta salad that I will be sharing with you next week also. Corn on the grill is a no-brainer and deviled eggs is always on the menu when it comes to a BBQ. Drunken Chicken with Mexican Rub will accompany the side dishes along with some Country Corn Bread! Watermelon is on ice and strawberry short cake awaits us in the frig!

Just picked this morning!

However some of our other favorites are homemade Cole Slaw, our homemade BBQ Sauce and homemade Sangria. bbqsaucejustaddsign

Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday and with my kitchen finally done, I hope to be cooking up lots more dishes in the weeks to come………..Happy 4th everyone!

P.S. I’m not sure what’s going on today, but we lost power this morning and now it’s pouring down rain, what next???????

Taco Meat Seasoning Revisited

Since today is National Taco Day, I thought I’d bring back an older recipe that I posted almost two years ago. As we have lots of busy days on our agenda with revamping the kitchen, watching that stupid storm Karen in the gulf  in case we have to hunker down and all the other day-to-day chores! So with all that great stuff going on, bear with me in case I miss a day here and there! Tacos are one of Kenny and I’s favorites and we enjoy them quite often! I absolutely love the taco shell baking dishes I bought which save a lot of money compared to buying taco shells already to heat and eat as I like my shells crunchy! This recipe for making your own spice mix for your tacos also saves a lot of money in comparison to buying prepackaged taco meat spice mix and as I said, they’re probably spices you already have in your spice cabinet.


National Taco Day!  Ole!

Taco Meat Seasoning Revisited
  • For one pound of hamburger:
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 teas salt
  • ½ teas dried minced onion
  • ½ teas paprika
  • ¼ teas onion powder
  • Dash of garlic
  • ¼ teas cumin
  1. Drain cooked hamburger of any fat; combine all ingredients and sprinkle over meat, adding about ¼ cup of water.
  2. Mix well and simmer until meat has absorbed all the liquid.


I don’t know where I got this recipe, but I have been using it for over 25 years! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Don’t forget to have a nice cold brew with your tacos, maybe a Corona?
