Of course, I cooked for the game. I ended up making chicken empanadas with chicken and carmelized onions and a chicken salad spread over crackers with the left over chicken. Along with that I made a plateful of beef teriyaki strips and a pan full of pizza burgers, and some ham and cheese quesadillas. Quite the mix of ethnic foods ... but all quick and easy... fill your plate and stay out of Mom's way .... the Super Bowl is on and she's not standing in the kitchen to watch it!!
Took a little drive yesterday ...
I went down by Crowley Dam to see if the river was open ... it was ... but just for a little ways then it's frozen again where the current slows down. Although... by the Six Mile Landing I noticed a lot of slush on the river already ... so I would be careful snowmobiling along that stretch. The rest of the area though is still going full bore for the snowmobilers. The river down by us doesn't get traveled that much by snowmobilers; but up on the lakes and the flowages it does. There's still a good three feet of ice on the flowage.
This is looking down the steps by Crowley:
Slim started a new batch of bacon today. Right now it's getting a dry rub cure put on ... then in a few days it will go into a wet brine ... then the smokehouse.
Surprisingly ... this bacon comes out so lean ... but you wouldn't think so by looking at it in it's early stage. lol ... kinda like me. haha Too bad I can't be eating this stuff anymore ... all that salt and fat ... are no no's for this girl.
Time to go for a walk ... do some laundry ... and who knows what.
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
