The 4th was steak, home made scalloped potatoes, corn and the last of the squash. The steak got away from her and just a tad over done, but it was great.











Looks amazing!  Big steaks are hard.  We basically only do steak tips now because my mom gets stressed out about grilling them, and the steak tips come out perfect every time. 

Here was our July 4th spread: Homemade corn dogs, fries, and pea salad.

Yep. With a steak, you just wave it in front of the stove. If it actually feels the heat, it'd over done. :yes: :yes:

All right, after a brief sabbatical, I'm back in the game!  ;D  We had sausage sandwiches tonight with fresh garden basil.

Here's a smattering of food from this week.  I took a bunch of pictures but didn't have time to post them until now. 

BBQ rabbit, noodle mix, and pineapple salsa.


We usually freeze dry our surplus goats milk, but we can't right now because the freeze dryer keeps tripping the circuit breaker, and our handyman had one of his guys get COVID, so it's a two week wait until he can come out to put in a circuit for it.  As a result my sister was making lots of dairy products this week to use up the extra milk.  She has tried several times to make yogurt, but it always comes out way too runny.  She tried a new technique this week, and it finally worked, and it is delicious!  It's better than any store bought yogurt.  She sweetened it with my honey. 


She also made raspberry sherbet with our ice cream maker, and we topped it with some leftover sugared peaches. 


My mom also made a sunflower cake with an unopened package of Peeps we had left over from Easter.

A few weeks ago we were doing some work in Leavenworth Ks. Slow rolled some chicken, scalloped potatoes on the grill, stove top stuffing and deli pasta salad. There may have been pie for dessert.

After a day at the lake, we got pizza from one of our local pizza places.

Par-cooked red onion, tomatoes, garlic, yellow squash, zucchini, red peppers and yellow peppers so they wouldnt still be too crunchy when the shrimp was cooked. 

Shrimp kabobs, deviled crab, lobster tail and potatoes.

I like to boil small potatoes with a cup of salt in the water. Quickly and completely drain the pot, and a crust of salt residue will form on the potatoes when the remaining dampness evaporates. Top with some butter for the win.

Is it even legal to each that much different seafood in one meal?!  My mind is blown.  :o  Also, that way of cooking potatoes is GENIUS!  I'm passing that one along to my chef, uh, I mean mom.  :-[  :D

Get the tiny red skin potatoes. About 1 inch or 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Place a tab of butter on top. Once it melts, I roll a potato around in the meted butter in the plate and pop the whole potato in one bite.

Persimmon pudding
Firm enough to hold, but plenty jelly in the middle.

My grandmother’s recipe for Molasses Crumb Pie. It takes about 45-50 minutes in my oven. If the pie is moist and gummy in the middle it’s right, if it’s cake like, you baked it too long.
