Squash Casserole #2



I can remember as a child not liking squash at all!  Then something happened a few years later that changed my mind.  I began to like the way mama and grandmama would boil until tender,and then drain to fry them up in their trusty iron frying pans.  The flavor changed and was to me much better than the boiled to mush.  Yes, Southern Style vegetables were and still are at times cooked until beyond tender. Not any of the crisp tender vegetables that have found their way (from up North, lol ) to our tables. Which, by the way I love as well.

Today I'm sharing a casserole that is moist and delicious.  Chuck has oooed and ahhhed every time he put some into his mouth. There have been many recipes for squash casserole over the years.  They are all similar, some are a little on the dry side, some moist.  This one is moist.  I put the Pepperidge Farm Herb Stuffing in this one along with many other rich dairy ingredients.  This makes a huge casserole, so I would intend to have lots of leftovers or have for a family gathering.  You could also wrap well and place in freezer for having another day.  Hope you enjoy as much as we do.

Oven Braised Short Ribs in Rich Gravy



I can remember grocery shopping with mama when younger.  I would always ask why she bought that bone with a little bit of meat on it.  She would say "That gives the dish flavor, it tastes so good." She was right you know.  She would add it to her beef stew, soups, stocks and it was delicious. She was an excellent cook and made some of the best gravies in the world.

When you see the short ribs on sale, stock up on them because they can be quite expensive if not.  

Today I share one of my creations, give it a try I think you'll enjoy!

Duck Eggs!





I am waiting on Chuck to be my guinea pig.  Yes, I need him to try the duck eggs we are now finding in the coop.  Soon maybe, he will try them and I'll give you his taste test results.

Me try them first?  No way, I don't know why, but no way.

They are huge, very hard shelled pretty eggs and I am curious. Guess I'll do what anybody would do when curious about a certain subject, Google it!

This is what I've found out in searching today.

Me and My Chicken!


I Guess the title should read My Chicken and I, but this one just sounded better to me.

This chicken follows us every day.  As a matter of fact if he thinks we are up having coffee He gets angry.  If we haven't stopped to open the back door to speak, he will stand at the back door and crow until we do!  Today introducing a very special chicken and I've named him Comet!

It's Fall Y'all!




Hey, Fall Lovers!  It's here!  I am making a celebration of it too!  Right here by gardening and putting out things that would have made my Mama 'Dot' so proud!  You can see by my post picture that I had to start subtle in color.  You know the girls say, "Mama you only like the colors of white, off white, tan, beige with maybe a little light brown."  They are right I do, but am branching out and today celebrating right by myself.  I had a some help getting it to this point though, "Thanks Carly!"
