SHARON’S CHEEZY BEER COCKTAIL

While living in Portland, Oregon years ago I knew a waiter who drank tomato juice and beer in the morning. I think she thought everybody did.  She was from Canada. It was a new one on me. I did try it once however and it was good. Who would think tomato and beer? But weContinue reading “SHARON’S CHEEZY BEER COCKTAIL”

Maple Syrup Shots

All you need is: 1 – a shot glass (sparkling clean) 2- a sugared rim 3- a shot of Grade A maple syrup, room temperature or chilled I’ll have a “123”. That’s code for maple syrup absent the alcohol.

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU GET A DUD WATERMELON

JUICE IT! That’s all you can do, unless you throw it away, or suffer through eating it, because you paid for it. Steve loves watermelon. A couple years ago, the grocery had great watermelons all summer. Steve bought one – small one – and sometimes not so small – every day. Lots of people did.Continue reading “WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU GET A DUD WATERMELON”

GINGER JUICE

Alright, this is a tough one. Juicing ginger. First I peel, then I don’t, it doesn’t seem to matter. You need to start with plump ginger. Just because ginger is a root, doesn’t mean that it’s suppose to be dry. Ginger root, unless it’s too old, is not dry; it’s wet. It’s juicy. However, becauseContinue reading “GINGER JUICE”

STRAWBERRY BANANA PROTEIN DRINK

Every now and then I make myself a protein drink. I’ve had this container of pea protein from NOW SPORTS for about a year, that’s how seldom I make one. And I have a back up in the pantry. This one is almost empty, however, so at least I’m using it, albeit slowly. Recently IContinue reading “STRAWBERRY BANANA PROTEIN DRINK”

FRESH STRAWBERRY MIMOSA

Okay, it’s that time of week again. Our day off. I stuck with the juicing. I’m not quite organized with it, and I’m not even sure if I want to be so structured that I begin to resent it. Let me just say that I’m juicing, not every day, but close. We don’t always haveContinue reading “FRESH STRAWBERRY MIMOSA”

I’M JUICING – AGAIN!?

Over the many years I’ve probably had 3-4 juicer machines. Each time after not much time, they all ended up at a garage sale. It just didn’t seem worth the time nor effort to get so little juice and so much pulp that I didn’t use out of the laborious process. That was back whenContinue reading “I’M JUICING – AGAIN!?”
