Julian’s 6th Birthday Party

EatingFamily

Julian had a terrific birthday party on Saturday. Lots of his friends and all of his grandparents, and others stopped by to join in the festivities.   His parents had games and many activities for the kids set up in the backyard.  Happy Birthday, Julian!  Click on the first picture to embiggen, and then click the right side of the pics to run through them.

Here’s a little video of Julian playing his new 3/4 size Squire guitar.

Don’t worry, Nick was not washed out to sea.  Here are few more pics – click a pic to embiggen

Gettin’ the Band Back Together

Well look at this.  The whole family was together Thursday, so we tried to capture this Kodak moment after dinner, but the sun was going down and (spoiler alert:  I’m an idiot) I didn’t know how to use the timer on my camera.  Amanda figured it out, but by the time we took the picture it was dark and the picture was pretty terrible.  Thank Trump for Photoshop!  A little playing around and it’s  not bad at all.  Click the pic to embiggin.

Bud’s Cowboy Beans

EatingRecipes

It’s supposed to be lucky to eat beans on the first of the year, or so says the “Organization of American Bean Producers.”  So, we started 2016 out right with a batch of Cowboy Beans using Brenda’s Dad’s recipe. Yum!

Like any good cook, Brenda’s dad had no written recipe for this, he just made it up as he went along.  It’s sweet, tangy, and bacon-y.  What’s not to like?

You need:

  • 5 or so slices of chopped, uncooked bacon,
  • about a pound of hamburger,
  • about 1/2 chopped onion,
  • about 4 cans of various kinds of beans,
  • about 1/2 cup ketchup,
  • 3-4 tablespoons of vinegar or more (depends on how tangy you want it),
  • 1/2 cup or so brown sugar,
  • a tsp of mustard (powdered or prepared),
  • salt, & pepper.

You can also throw in green peppers, molasses, chili powder, liquid smoke (hickory flavor), or whatever you have laying around that you think might taste good.

Cook the bacon, onion, and hamburger and drain.  Throw in everything else and play around until it tastes good to you.
