Red Sky in Morning…


Red sky in Morning..Sailors take warning.  Red sky at night…Sailors delight.  Yeah…watched Deadliest Catch last night.  Gotta love that show and the crew of the Time Bandit…and God be with the rest as well.

Almost 80 today, but weather headed down hill for awhile.  Suppose to rain and snow, but the low is suppose to be 30…so won’t be too bad.  Hate to see the sunny skies leave though.  Decided to make a bunch of salads today, so the rest of the week is simple. 

First of all, I made a potato salad.  Everyone has their own recipe for tater salad, so I won’t bore you with mine.  I also made a pasta salad…pasta, bunches of fresh veggies and zesty Italian dressing…very simple.  Then made Sunomona…Randy style.  Then made a tomato salad.



chopped Roma tomatoes

chopped red onions


sour cream

dried dill weed

salt and peeper

All amounts depends on how much you want to make.  I use Romas because they aren’t as juicy, but more meaty.  Usually two parts tomatoes to one part onion (if you have some cucumbers…throw them in too).  I use equal parts mayo and sour cream….salt and peeper to taste as well as dill weed.  I personally like the taste of dill…so I use lots of dill.


Add ham and you have a wonderful dinner.  And enough variety all the gkids are happy.  And for dessert…brownies.


1/2 cup butter

3 oz unsweetened chocolate

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

2/3 cup flour

1/4 tsp baking soda

Melt butter and chocolate over low heat.  Cool and the add sugar.  Add eggs one at a time then stir in vanilla.  Add dried ingredients and add to sugar mixture until just combined.  Spread into greased 8X8 pan.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Cool in pan on wire rack.  Cut into bars and frost.


1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

6 oz softened cream cheese

1/2 cup powdered sugar

Melt chips over low heat and then cool.  Stir in cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
