It's weaning season around here:
That means - yep, you guessed it - I'm in the kitchen again, but before the crew trailered the calves over from the north side of the ranch last week, Skeet and I walked out into the pens after breakfast and added Corid to the water troughs:
Hubby and I had put out 12 big bales of hay in the pens the previous evening:
I cooked Wednesday - Thursday - Friday last week.
And Wednesday - Thursday - Friday this week.
I haven't tried any new recipes so nothing to share - just tried and true favorites, but I've linked to posts of previously posted recipes.
Breakfasts are always hard for me. I struggle with variety for the crew. I make Scrambled eggs - Sausage - Biscuits - Gravy - and fruit one day. I have a good Breakfast Pizza dish - bacon - biscuits - fruit another day. Breakfast Burritos - Fruit and Cinnamon Rolls or Donuts the last day. Scrambled eggs - pancakes / waffles - syrup -bacon - fruit another day. Scrambled eggs / Migas - sausage - breakfast potatoes / hashbrowns - biscuits - fruit the next day. Repeat. Sometimes I throw in a Honey Bun Cake or Pecan Pie Muffins or Blueberry Muffins into the mix.
I'm just making a list here for future reference:
2. Barbecue Sandwiches - Roasted Seasoned Potato Wedges - Pimento Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos - Corn on the Cob
3. Cornpone Pie - Taquitos - Homemade Salsa - Salad
4. Brisket - Baked Potatoes - Cole Slaw - Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins - Jalapeno Poppers
5. Steak Tapequena - Mashed Potatoes - Corn - State Fair Yeast Biscuits
6. Fajitas - Refried Beans - Salsa - Chips
Plus DH got an Apple Pie in between that he didn't have to share. 😉
The weather has been amazing. About 32° in the morning and 70° in the afternoon. Today they needed dinner at 10:30. It was so nice out that I had a hard time going back into the kitchen after grilling the Flank Steak for fajitas
and although I do love cooking for these boys, the thing I am most looking forward to now that we are done is leftovers...and a nap! Kitchen is closed. 😉
