OKTOBERFEST. Cheers To The German In Me

Yes, it’s a fine beer, and made locally, which is extra nice! So what if it’s not October. Fond memories abound. Germany 1968. Tour of Europe. Why October? It was cheaper. Most tourists were gone. Rows of picnic tables outside the backs of restaurants with patrons wanting to eat outside. Sounds like us. Mom andContinue reading “OKTOBERFEST. Cheers To The German In Me”

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. A maple shot please. You mean… Yes, maple syrup. Now that’s an ice-breaker that gets everybodyContinue reading “Maple Syrup Shots”

Beetology Juice

The study of beets I’m assuming is meant by beetology. Beet + Cherry flavored is the one Steve brought home knowing I liked both. No time for a glass, the bottle is the glass. Even removed the label that had no glue on it by the way to use for another purpose. The bottom ofContinue reading “Beetology Juice”

RAINBOW JUICE

Well today, this morning, I decided to juice pieces of stuff I saved and other stuff that I still had to prep. Beets, carrots, celery, basil, and the juice of 2 oranges, hand juiced (the oranges). That’s what we had in the morning and we have enough to have a glass each this evening. That’sContinue reading “RAINBOW JUICE”

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”

BEET JUICE

Beet juice is quickly becoming one of my favorite juices, and beets my favorite veggie to juice in my juicer machine. Steve keeps reminding me to buy beets, so he’s feeling good about it too. The yield is surprisingly high, given the hardness of the vegetable. It makes a lot of foam, but it’s good-tastingContinue reading “BEET 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!?”
