To the 1st Annual Valentine's Day Boost-My-Blog Party,
Come on in, have a cup of coffee and sit awhile.
Winter is still with us here in Southwest Wisconsin.
The maple syrup season is almost here and I can't wait to taste the first batch of syrup of the year. With the drought we had this past summer makes me wonder how much sap we'll be getting. We are planning to tap some of our neighbors trees, so that should help some. This photo is from last year, our first sap run came in February, notice there was no snow on the ground then.
We eat a lot of beans here in the winter months. We buy our beans in bulk and I add my own seasonings to the beans. I have to say this is one dish I have a hard time making, so this has fallen on my husband to make. We usually have beans for lunch with homemade wheat bread. He'll add leftover meat if we have any, carrots, celery, and some of our dried potatoes and onions. We have a couple jars left of those and I can't wait for gardening season to begin again so that we can stock up for next winter.
Eating beans must sound boring to you, but we like it, and it's very healthy for you, and it looks like we'll be needing to get more for next winter.
Since getting beef from our neighbor I never buy meat from the grocery store, well at least almost never, and now I won't have to ever. I decided to grind my own ground beef from the cuts of meat that I have a hard time making things with. Ground beef or hamburger is something I run out of first. I cut almost all the fat off and when I browned it up I couldn't believe that there was barely any grease.
On the menu for the week which was supposed to be Monday, I made Trisha Yearwood's, Gwen's Old Fashioned Potato Beef Casserole. See I told you I never follow my schedule. I can't find the recipe on the Food Network website, so if you want it just let me know and I'll e-mail it to you. Again it's DELICIOUS!
I'd like to wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day!
