Weather ~ Picture of the Day ~ Doubting Thomas ~ Italian Sausage & Pepper Sliders ~ Names/Professions ~ National Peanut Butter Day

Good 45ยบ pouring rain morning. 

Picture of the Day ... LOL! 

Answer: A doubting Thomas is a skeptic who refuses to believe without direct personal experience—a direct reference to Thomas the Apostle who famously doubted Jesus’ resurrection, telling the other disciples, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe”. Thomas’ moment of skepticism earned him the nickname “Doubting Thomas,” which has since evolved into a term for anyone who needs proof before they believe something.

From The Slow Roasted Italian...

Italian Sausage and Pepper Sliders are meaty, cheesy and gooey. They are the ultimate comfort food for game day, get-togethers of just a good hearty meal!
  • 12 slider buns, split (we love Hawaiian)
  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage (hot, mild or sweet)
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. On stove saute together your Italian sausage, peppers and onions until no longer pink and vegetables are tender, remove from heat, drain and set aside.
  3. Place the bottom half of your sliders in your baking pan and sprinkle with one cup of cheese.
  4. Top with your sausage and pepper mixture.
  5. Spread your marinara over the top and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Place top of your buns over your cheese.
  6. Bake, uncovered, 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and heated through.
  7. In small bowl mix together your melted butter, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.
  8. Spread over the top of slider buns, reserving just a little bit to brush on after they are done baking.

National Peanut Butter Day on January 24th recognizes an American staple in our pantries. Whether creamy or chunky, with chocolate or with jelly, peanut butter gets the recognition it deserves each year on this day. 
The early peanut butter made by the Aztecs and Incas around 1000 BC was more of a paste and not nearly as creamy as the peanut butter we know now.
Peanut butter didn’t become widely used until the 20th century. First, the peanut had to be considered more than animal feed, which was until the late 1800s. At the turn of the century, inventions that made planting, cultivating and harvesting the legume (the peanut isn’t a nut at all) made it possible to see the peanut as a retail and wholesale food item. (See more by visiting National Peanut Day -September 13)
Peanut butter is a good source of vitamin E, B6, niacin, calcium, potassium and iron, is packed with protein and is rich in healthy monounsaturated fat.
Bringing Peanut Butter to the Masses
We can thank four men for the inventions and processes that bring us the creamy, smooth peanut butter we enjoy today: Marcus Gilmore Edson of Canada, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, Dr. Ambrose Straub of St. Louis, Missouri and chemist Joseph Rosefield.
In 1884, Edson developed a process to make peanut paste from milling roasted peanuts between two heated plates. The famous cereal maker and health food specialist of the time, Kellogg, patented a process with raw peanuts in 1895. Dr. Straub is responsible for patenting a peanut butter making machine in 1903.
Peanut butter was introduced to audiences at the 1904 Universal Exposition in St. Louis at C.H. Sumner’s concession stand.
But the man who brought us the peanut butter we know and love today was Joseph Rosefield. In 1922, through homogenization, Rosefield was able to keep peanut oil from separating from the peanut solids. He later sold the patent to a company that began making Peter Pan peanut butter. Rosefield then went into business for himself selling Skippy peanut butter through Rosefield Packing. He also supplied peanut butter for military rations during World War II.
