  • Baked Carrots - Another "Happy Accident"

    OK - so as I get older either my arms are getting shorter or the print is getting smaller on the durn labels at the grocery store or I need yet -another- pair of glasses (right now it's one pair for the computer and one pair for everything else).

    I get sent to the grocery store - get bacon, I'm told. Get bacon but DON'T get the maple syrup kind. I agree - the bacon with the maple *flavoring* already injected into it is nasty. (I love REAL maple syrup - not that "flavoring" junk)

    So I'm looking at the meat case - "Bacon - Hardwood Smoked" says the big print on the label.

    Yeah you guessed it - really itty bitty print at the bottom says "with maple flavoring". Bleh. Not discovered until I got all the way back home, opened it, starting cooking it, smelled that awful maple flavoring smell: so we're stuck with it.

    I'm also frugal (well ok - a cheap so-and-so), and I'll be darned if I'm going to throw the stuff out. It doesn't taste bad but the smell when it's frying is really overwhelming.

    About the same time, we ended up with an over-abundance of large carrots. So, Tainee takes about a pound of carrots - peels them, cuts them into 2" long pieces and arranges them in a single layer in the bottom of a 9x9 pan. Then she chopped up 2 slices of the bacon, sprinkled it over the carrots, covered the pan with aluminum foil and put it in a 350 deg over for about an hour.

    Now, that was goot stuff and a new favorite of mine!

    Cracked Heels
    by wyo_rose
    I have suffered from cracked heels and cracks on the ball of my foot for years! It was pretty gross and painful as well. During the winter it gets a little better wearing socks all the time, but spring is almost here and I'm going to wear sandals until it snows again.

    I'm just posting...

    Food Preppers
    by wyo_rose
    I've always tried to save stuff for a rainy day...bordering on being a pack rat! After seeing the "Hoarders" show on TV, I'm trying to cut back.

    But now that Doomsday Preppers is on TV, I'm seeing validation for storing food. I try to keep my cupboard full, growing...

    Best Beef Ribs Ever
    by wyo_rose
    Well, I'm really not a rib fan, cuz it's so hard to find good ones. But I can't resist a good sale either and bought 8 pounds of ribs for $4.00. It's getting a little cool for the outdoor grill, but that's what helped the ribs cook slower. There's probably just as good in the oven. A smoker would...

    Uses for Duct Tape....
    by DaCotau
    What was your strangest or most creative use of duct tape?

    I once used it to hold my horse's shoe on. It held damn good all the way back home! And yes I always carry it with me riding. I have also used it to hold a bridle together that busted once.
