Clear Sky ~ Geese ~ Bacon Pickle Fries ~ Corned Beef Dinner


Good 29º icy clear sky morning....
 
       
Yesterday we had sun for a couple hours and the rest of the day was cloudy and gloomy and we warmed to 50º. 

 
When I left here on Saturday heading to Taprock, "my geese" were walking down my driveway and not worried about my truck, just taking their time. I think they knew it was me, as at times when I am driving up or down the driveway and they are close by I open the window and talk to them. I always call them "goosie goose" and they know it's me, the cracked corn lady!

Later the corned beef I cooked in the crockpot with the Guinness beer and colcannon was dinner. Super good! Cooked the beef on low for 9 hours. Perfectly tender!

National Chocolate Caramel Day

It’s National Chocolate Caramel Day! The union of chocolate and caramel is arguably one of the most popular and decadent flavor combinations. These two ingredients appear in countless candy bars, ice cream flavors, confections, and desserts.
Did you know that Milton Hershey began his career at a caramel company? In the late 1800s he began experimenting with ways to improve caramel candy and found some German-built machines for manufacturing chocolate. His attention would eventually shift completely to chocolate, but Hershey’s first product was a chocolate-covered caramel!
To celebrate National Chocolate Caramel Day, enjoy some of your favorite goodies made with chocolate and caramel. Enjoy!
  • March 19, 2018 is also St. Joseph's Day
