Fun & Tasty Food Tricks

With another busy week (getting our septic tank back in running order as we speak), I thought I would just compile some recipes that have a little twist to them. Some of these I’m sure you have tried and if not, go for it as they’re great!

Our chickens are awesome!

Our chickens are awesome!

The first thing I want to share is the baked, hard-boiled eggs. They have been all over the internet lately and I just had to try them…. In a mad search to find my mini cupcake pan, I figured that I must have given them or loaned them to one of my granddaughters. Nope, found them hiding under a large pot where I didn’t look; Kenny is rubbing off on me, you know how men can’t find anything even if it’s right in front of their noses, ha ha! I am not fond of hard boiled eggs but husband is a huge fan and I don’t think I will ever boil them again. Just set your eggs in a mini muffin pan with the large part of the egg in the bottom. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 30 minutes, remove from oven and immerse into ice water to cool. No cracked eggs, easy as hell to peel and best of all, Kenny said they were wonderful. What a great way to fix a large amount of eggs with summer and BBQ time upon us.

I swear this will be done every time I make them from now on and one of the great things is that you’re adding another veggie to the mix. On dish dinner…….

spinach salad and muffins 001 Sticking to the spinach thing, with hot weather here what better for dinner than a nice healthy salad. Make a bed of baby spinach. Have desired amount of bacon cooked and crumbled along with chopped tomatoes for topping. Drizzle all with a little of the warm bacon fat and top with some feta cheese. Serve with some fresh dinner rolls and you’re ready to go.

I’m sure a lot of you have tried this but if you haven’t, make your favorite meat ball recipe and stick a Recotta puppies 007small cube of Mozzarella cheese in the center, covering the cheese completely so it does not leak out. Bake as you normally do and have some spaghetti sauce for dipping,,,,,,,,,,,,Oh yeah!

And finally, Kenny’s Bacon Cheeseburger Egg Sandwich that is great for breakfast, lunch and even dinner! Do I need to describe this? Just cook off your burger to desired temperature (medium rare for me and burnt to a crisp for husband), top with cheese and cooked bacon and then slap it on your cooked egg (over easy, poached or even scrambled) and serve in your favorite toasted burger bun, yes, yes and more yeses!

Loony Tune June Holidays II

Why I left this to Monday, I’ll never understand, especially after a Sunday holiday. However, I’ll try to put some humor in these crazy days that mark the last half of the month!

Besides Father’s Day yesterday the 16th was No Orange Clothes Day and I hope that the former President Bush was warned! I don’t know if anyone saw it, but Mrs. Bush gave a whole rendition of her husband’s odd habit of wearing crazy colored socks these days and Mrs. Bush had a good laugh along with the audience as she showed a lot of pictures of this weird habit that he has started!

Picture doesn't do the socks justice, they were really orange!

Today, the 17th, is Mud Pack Day, something our yard and ourselves have seen way too much of lately. It is now dry again thank God and although I like to have some rain, we don’t need 4 or 5 inches at one time! What happened to those summer showers we used to get in the afternoon here in Florida? I guess we should be thankful that it’s not like Noah’s time!

The 19th is World Sauntering Day, so? Eat an Oreo Day and Garfield The Cat Day also on this date, so grab up a big glass of milk with some Oreo cookies and read Garfield’s comic strip, it will put a smile on your face every time!

Yes, Monday's Suck!

Yes, Monday’s Suck!

The 20th is Juggling Day and I would dedicate this one to all the ladies out there, as we are always juggling things in our everyday life, the kids, chores, errands and cooking, just to name a few!

World Handshake Day is on the 21st which is strange in the fact that, we also have National Handshake Day on the 24th and just plain ole Handshake Day on the 28th. Why didn’t they just combine them  all to one day you ask, hell if I know! Today is also Take Your Dog To Work Day and I don’t think there are too many jobs out there where that would be appropriate. Can you see the butcher taking his dog Butch to the shop with him, there wouldn’t be anything left to sell in the meat counter!

So cute!

So cute!

The 22nd is Stupid Guy Thing Day, need I say anymore ladies?

On the 23rd we have Let It Go Day, don’t tell this to someone hanging off the side of a cliff, nope not a good idea at all! Today is also Pink Flamingo Day and living in Florida, you get your fill of seeing these EVERYWHERE in people’s lawns. I say it’s time to let the flamingo go people!

International Fairy Day is on the 24th. I can attest to fairies being real, as they left me money under my pillow when they took my teeth when I was a kid, really! Today is also National Go Fly A Kite Day, not to be confused with Go Fly A Kite Day back on the 15th, again why didn’t they make it all one day, I get so confused and that’s not hard for me at my age! And this one, Log Cabin Day is today or possibly on the 30th, two conflicting dates on this one but I’d take it everyday as that is one of our dreams.

We'll take it!

We’ll take it!

The 26th is a good one, Please Take My Children To Work, someone desperate must have come up with this one, for sure!

Well hope it’s your birthday on the 27th because it’s Happy Birthday To You Day, some of this stuff is just too silly!

The 28th holds yet another Gone-Ta-Pott Day, how many of these can we celebrate in one year?

Well that was a chore for me today and glad it’s over as I have more pickles to get into my freezer and another batch to put together. Hope you enjoyed, maybe next month I’ll be in better form!
