Hello, on my to do list was to deal with a bunch of jalapeños my husband grew.
For some of them, I used my friend Dawn’s recipe.
Dawn’s freezer jalapeño poppers
I think these will be so nice to pull out and bake some whenever we like.
With the rest of the jalapeños, I found a very simple candied jalapeño recipe and did that to the rest of them.
Candied jalapeños are really good on a cracker with a smear of cream cheese.
Supper was lentil tacos in crunchy shells with naked okra.
My grandsons that live on a farm gobbled up the lentil tacos. In fact the oldest grandson ate 4.
He is not a picky eater but he never mentioned anything about the lentil tacos being different from the beef tacos he has always had before.
I really think the lentil tacos would appeal to anyone that likes tacos. They are seasoned up just like beef taco meat.
Gavin and Braeden really do live on a small farm. Their daddy has beef cows and their momma has dairy cows. The boys help with both.
This is one of their guernsey calves right after they showed her at our county fair.
Yesterday, I baked 2 batches of cookies. Most of them are for this weekend’s cookout.
I used this recipe for the chocolate chip ones except I used semisweet chocolate chips and I made mine just regular cookie size
Cookie Madness is a great blog, written by a regular mom who won the Pillsbury Bake Off maybe 10 years ago. She bakes lots of cookies and other desserts and you can trust her recipes and advice.
The other is a recipe I’ve used for lots of years but I added homemade pumpkin spice blend. They have no real pumpkin in them.
That’s what’s been cookin’ here.
