I have put salt on my corn along with the butter since I've been knee high to a grass hopper, but in my older age, I'll settle for butter only.
My father-in-law always had to have his wife cut the corn off the cob in order for him to eat it. I oftened wondered if he missed eating it off the cob.
I would love to have daily, buttered corn on the cob, home grown tomatos with fresh Basil and watermellon, (salt omitted) and I would definately think I was in heaven.
My tomato plants are slow growing, I am wondering if I will have any. I love picking the first ripe tomato off the vine and wiping it ever so slightly on my shirt while anticipating the taste. Biting into the juicy succlent meat of the tomato, taste better than any steak would to me..In case I don't have luck with my tomato plants, I can always go to the Farmers Market. Thank goodness for those farmers working their farms.
I have a delicious receipe for Blueberry Jam. It's easy - if I can do it anyone can. If your interested in the receipe let me know and I will send it to you.
Here is something different some of you might want to try. I found this in the Country Woman magazine. If it is as good as the Fried Pickles at Max & Erma's, than it is sure a winner.
Ready for this?
Kool Aid Pickles
1 jar (32 oz.) undrained whole Dill Pickles
2/3rd cup sugar
1 envelope (.14oz) unsweetened Kool Aid mix, -flavor of your choice
Drain pickles, reserving juice in a small bowl, combine the reserve juice, sugar and Kool Aid
Stir until sugar is dissolved. Set aside
Slice pickles length wise or leave whole and return to jar.
Pour juice mixture over pickles. Discard any remaining juice.
Cover and refrigerate one week before serving
Yield - 3 cups
I plan on making this the week before we leave for vacation, so I won't be able to tell you how it
taste till after that. NOW if any of you who may be reading this wants to try it, please let me know
how you like it.
Do you like a cup of Tea? I enjoy having a cup of tea on my patio in the early morning. It's my little haven, tho most mornings I share it with a little wren who's nest is just above the patio door.
She's not afraid of me at all. She just goes about her motherly chores of bringing worms to her family. I can see the worms hanging out both sides of the little wrens mouth as she first perches on a ledge a little bit away from the nest. Just when I wonder what she is waiting for, she flys faster than light up into the nest - - - I love watching her. I can't see the little ones at all, I have no idea how many are up there or how big they are.
My youngest son and family have this beautiful white duck on their farm. We all love to listen to him quack and watch him waddle while following the chickens around. If the chickens go fast, he waddles faster, funny to look at but cute. He was a little fledging and we watched him develp into a beautiful duck. We were sad to hear from Jeff that he is missing. Anything could of happened to him, a animal might have got him, like a fox but we are hoping he went on a little trip and will be back soon.
Do you have Oak kitchen cabinets? What do you use to clean and polish them with?, I am unsure of what to use, but they need done and the sooner the better.
I hope you are enjoying some lazy, hazy, crazy days of this summer. I have been on vacation for two weeks, one shared with my husband and one by myself. It's been a working, relaxing and fun couple of weeks. I have another vacation week coming at the end of July. We will be going to Myrtle - this vacation I am really looking forward to. We will be with all of our grandchildren, I am so excited about this.
If you could keep our son's girl, Chere in prayer we would be very thankful, She had a heart valve replaced about 3 weeks ago and recovery is going slow. Also for two of our grandaughters to have a safe trip going back with their grandparents to Fla. to spend a week with them. For a special intention of mine, God will know my special intention. For a young woman who is paying her dues and has a long way to go before they are paid, pray that she and her family have piece of mind., for all of those who are suffering in some way, for our men/women in the service, for ourselves and our familys. and whoever else I might not have mentioned.
May God bless you all with good health, peace of mind, and quiet of day <3
Many hugs to all
Dee, Dolores Rose, Dolores, Mom, MeMaw, Hon, Mrs.C, Dee
