Not a food post but we’re proud to introduce our newest members of the family, Jack Earle (pronounced Early) Frost and Sam Elmo’s Fyre, born August 29, 2014. Sam is the one on top. They are Coton de Tulear- “the Royal Dog of Madagascar.” When they are fully grown they will be 12″ tall, 18″ long,15 lb bundles of long flowing white hair, mustache and beard. They do not shed, are hypoallergenic, easily trained (they use them as circus dogs) and have a wonderful disposition. They will come home with us around Halloween and everyone is very excited to have them home. Of course, there is a lot of work to do to make the house puppy proof and puppy ready. :o

There is something I just love about primal cooking over direct fire, even if it is the modern convenience of a gas grill. :o I love the outdoors, the fresh smell of nature and the joy of watching all the little critters that visit our little backyard. So, when we get the opportunity, we grill and dine on the porch under the arbor. Grilled tuna chalupas with crazy corn (Baby Lady’s name for Mexican Style Grilled Corn on the Cob (Elotes Asados)) and grilled green onions. Pretty nice spread, don’t you think?
Yes, you heard me right. Pickled cherries. Sweet and sour with the nice cherry flavor that always comes with cherries. If you like cherries, you definitely need to give these a try. If you like pickles, you need to try these. Same if you like sweet and sour. Whatever you like, try these!!! You won’t believe the flavor. Continue reading
