Most mornings find me sitting in front of the computer reading blogs. This morning I found food inspiration!
I read A Home Grown Journal and she has a post on potato salad. So I got up, scrubbed some potatoes and put them on to boil. I put 9 eggs in a pan to boil--4 will be for hubby's lunches later in the week. My potato salad, made with some of my own pretty bread and butter pickles is now in the refrigerator and I'm hoping I can stay out of it until dinner time.
While waiting for my eggs and potatoes to cool, I put my jerky (found the recipe here and have modified it for our taste) on 8 dehydrator trays. This will go into individual serving zip bags and into the freezer for hubby's lunches. I do have to hide some of it or it will be gone in a few days. I can make a 5 pound roast into enough jerky to fill the dehydrator twice and it will last for quite a while. It's always a surprise to him when I find another package.....you'd think after all these years he would catch on. Maybe he has and he's not saying!
And then I went to Mama's Minutia and read To Rival Popeye about her green smoothies. Sounded good, I hadn't had breakfast yet so I got up and made myself a green smoothie!! My reaction was OMG, DELICIOUS! Be sure to check out the super cute pictures of her niece. They will bring a smile to your face.
Wonder what I can find next........maybe I'll go find some cookies!
