I really like the Jalapeno ones.

I got started eating them as a kid out fencing with a couple of old hired men. :D


That all just sounds nasty! But Little H would love it! She loves oysters, sardines, kipper snacks, etc.

And are your porcupine meatballs made from porcupines or do they have rice in them?

Mrs H, I really do enjoy cooking ,baking not so much. Hubby is gone so much that when he is home I like to make something different and special .

Tonight I am going to try a spinach salad ,dressed with a yogurt balsamic dressing and topped with fresh blueberries. Will let you know how it turns out as I am winging it. I will be serving it with grilled pork tenderloin.

Since you have young children at home you should try the cheese stuffed hamburgers, kids and adults love them. You just take your ground beef and season lightly, make two somewhat thin patties and stuff them with your favorite cheese be it cheddar, gruyere ,monterey jack etc. Then seal the two patties together around the edges shaping them so they are not too thick. Grill as normally done and top with an accompanying cheese to the one you have stuffed it with a few minutes before they are fully cooked . The cheese flavor is basically infused into the beef. Use condiments as you usually would and enjoy. It is delicious, and picky eaters usually love it.

We like to use blue cheese on the inside and then top with a medium gouda or swiss. Because of the unique flavors of the cheeses and the beef I like to just add sauteed mushrooms on mine, nothing else . Hubby adds the works ,lettuce, tomatoe. onion, pickle, ketchup ,mustard and relish .

Spinach salad... mmm..

I invented a dressing last summer that we really like. You just make a regular oil & vinegar dressing, using the blender or food processor, but add a couple of strawberries to it. Then put it on the spinach with sliced strawberries, finely sliced red onions, and slivered almonds.

Simple and delicious. 8)
