Happy Throw Back Thursday.......
17 years ago we had a downed tree and Jerry cut it up!
 

 
Mike is still working on my recent downed tree.... still lots to do...
 
 
 
 
Picture of the Day....
Photobombed!!
 
 
 
 
 
Easy Yummy Salmon Patties
 
  • 2 (15.5-ounce) cans red salmon, drained and flaked (skin and bones discarded)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except oil; mix well and form into 6 equal-sized patties.
     
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Cook patties in batches for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until golden. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter. Serve immediately.
Here's an easy dill sauce to serve with these patties: In a small bowl, combine 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon dried dill weed. Mix well and chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
 

 
A special birthday today, my Kristen and Brian's cousin David Dodge is celebrating. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE!!!

"I know what you're thinking. Did I fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?" Love it love it love it!!!!

Each year on May 31, National Macaroon Day is observed.  This day celebrates the macaroon, a small coconut cookie.
The coconut macaroon is most commonly found in the United States. Most varieties of coconut macaroons are dipped in milk chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate.  Almonds, pecans, cashews or other nuts are sometimes added to the cookie.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Following are two macaroon recipes for you to try and enjoy!
