Thank you to the talented tattooist n the person that is enjoying this piece of art on their being.

Playing with Ramen

Sautéed Green Beans and Carrots in Butter with Garlic. Cook til tender add some Chicken(is you have any leftover from something else) or not 🙂 , Balsamic Dressing, Scallions, the season pack from the Ramen and a touch of Lemon Juice. This is just one of the many Ramen creations my kid makes.

FYI: To my Vegetarian and Vegan followers just skip the Chicken, Butter(use a good quality Oil of your choice) and the season packet. Maybe add some Teriyaki or some Bragg’s www.bragg.com/products/bragg-liquid-aminossoy-alternative.html 

Til next time…..find the time to play 🙂

This meal is 100% Farmer’s Market.

wpid-20140706_190942.jpgMy Guy likes Sausage. I’m not a big fan. But, there is a terrific Lady at my Farmer’s Market that has the absolute best Pork

wpid-20140706_175417.jpgScallion, Summer Squash, and Corn. I decided that the Sweet Pepper just didn’t sound right to be in this dish.

How to:

1lb. High quality Sausage-If Vegan/Vegetarian just skip the Sausage and season with your favorite Herbs and Spices.

1 ear of Corn Cut it off the Cob

Beans- I had lots to choose from. So, I used a few of each. Trim to bite size.

Scallion or Onion.  maybe a Slice or 2. Chopped fine.

5-9 small Potatoes

a couple small Summer Squash

Cut everything into bite size pieces. Cook up the Sausage and set aside. I always rinse my ground meat after I cook it. It gets rid of fat as well as lightening up the meal . So, you don’t have that heavy feeling after you eat.

Cook the Potatoes til you like them. I wanted a light crunch. Set aside when done.

Steam or Microwave the remaining Veggies til tender. Throw everything  into a large Skillet to talk for 10 minutes or so……Done.

Great for leftovers. If there are any:). Packs up and reheats for Weekday Lunches as well.

 

I would like to start a RANT. Have you noticed that all my Corn from the Farmer’s Market is gorgeous??? I notice that people peel back the ear for some reason. Yes, I know the reason to check if the Corn is good or not. At the Farmer’s Market the Corn is no more than 48 hours old. It’s all good. Peeling back Corn at a Farmer’s Market or any place is just wrong. It is a waste and costs the Vender $$$!!!!!!

To check if the Corn is good. Gently squeeze the top of the Corn. If you feel Corn buy it. The worst case scenario is that you have to cut off the top of the Corn Most of you do anyway. So,what’s the big deal about being courteous and aware that Farmer’s Markets are people’s livelihood?????

 

Til next……I’m off to play in my room.

 

 

 

 

 

It’s Friday and I’m in a goofy mood. I thought I’d share a few treasures I’ve found.

The Garden sign is from Amazon.com. It included a Stake and it is also set up to be hung. SWEET!!!!

The Blood Splatter Spoon Rest and Cutting-board are sold individually at ThinkGeek.com.The Spoon rest is over sized and I like that it isn’t breakable. The Cutting-board drips over the side of the counter. These things make me smile.

 

Til next time……SMILE 🙂

 

A friend of mine was single for a couple of days this week( Meaning his other half was away on travel) So, what’s Guy  to do??? Fire up that Grill and Chill the Beer.

imageBeautifully Grilled  Kebab  (Store bought) and a couple of cold Flat Tires.

imageHis version of a balanced meal 🙂 As he pointed  out to me there is Applesauce.  Not so sure about his choice of Beer for this Dinner.

Did you notice the how nice the table is set? I’m impressed.

 

Til next time …..HAPPY FRIDAY 🙂
