Hi everyone! I have been keeping myself busy lately with the bounty of my garden. My tomatoes actually decided to turn red this year so I figured it was about time I teach myself to can. Yay! The purpose of this blog is to keep a record for my own safe keeping, get ideas and tips for future… MORE

Bacon Pea Salad
Had originally planned on making tuna salad and had already boiled the pasta when I realized-out of tuna. I found this doing an ingredient search for peas and bacon. So I easily adapted it into a pasta salad. I had already chopped some pickles and carrots so I threw those in. I ended up using only 1/2 c of peas. Turned out great. I agree with other reviewers to wait until the end to add the bacon. Quick, easy, and budget friendly. Served with cheeseburgers and potato chips. Looking forward to taking leftovers for lunch tomorrow

Zippy Summer Shrimp
Delicious! I found a great deal on fresh never been frozen shrimp at my local seafood market. I used half butter half olive oil add added a splash of pinot grigio. I had a bunch of shallots so I minced them instead of the sliced garlic. Use a good paprika. I used Hungarian half sharp paprika and it made all the difference. It added a wonderful zip. Served with pasta and a salad.

Cabbage, Potato and Baked Bean Soup
I wasn't in the mood for a super thick soup so I chose to thin it out. I simmered a very meaty ham bone in much more than 4 c water and eliminated the potatoes. I cooked it for about 2 hours. Then just dumped all the veggies (with the addition of carrots and corn for color) and simmered another 20 mins or so. Added the pork and beans when the veggies were tender. I tried a bowl without apple cider vinegar and it was good. Then I added a splash to another bowl as suggested by another reviewer. I liked the addition very much. I enjoyed it very much and I would like to make it just the same way. Great use of a cheapo can of pork and beans!
