Tuesday Tipz

KITCHEN TIPZ

A loyal reader shared the following list:

Chop strawberries (and other soft fruit) with an egg slicer.
Quick frozen meat defrost: place meat in a plastic bag, then put it on top of an upside-down aluminum pot. Fill another pot with room-temperature water and set it on the meat. In five to ten minutes your meat will be defrosted (because the metal conducts the heat).
Use an apple cutter to slice potatoes to bake as wedges.
Pie crust: grate a stick of frozen butter then toss the shreds with the flour instead of cutting the butter into the flour.
Clean your blender: fill it one-third with warm water & add a few drops of dishwashing liquid, run for 10 seconds. Rinse and dry.
If your baked cake falls apart: make a trifle. Layer cake pieces with fresh whipped cream and fruit in a pretty glass bowl.
Cut corn off the cob by setting it upright on the hole of a Bundt pan and slicing downward along the side. The corn and juices collect in the pan.
Fill a turkey baster with pancake batter and squeeze out custom shapes on the griddle. Color your shapes by applying layers, such as: draw the outline of an autumn leaf, let it brown before filling the rest of the leaf with batter.

VET BEANIE UPDATE

I have now made a beanie to represent each Military organization. 
Eight beanies have been made so far, my goal is at least 20. 
Turn in date is before Oct. 5. 
I like all of the color combinations.
Which one is your favorite? 
(The LED lights make the gold and orange look yellow.)

GARDEN FRESH STUFFED PEPPERS


It's time again for the peppers and 'maters
in the garden.
That usually means at least one or two crock pots
full of Stuffed Peppers.
This recipe is from my Mom,
but I have tweaked it bit.
It smells like autumn when it is cooking!

Fresh green peppers
Fresh tomotoes
Fresh onion--if available, optional
Ground meat, any kind
Worcestershire sauce and Ketchup

1. Brown the meat with onion,
    chop and drain.
    Add Worcestershire sauce and ketchup to taste.
    (Mom used to make meat balls to fit into the peppers.
     Kind of like mini meatloafs.) To save time, I just
     chop up all the meat to fill the peppers.

2. Cut tops of peppers off, and scoop out seeds.
    This will make 'bowls' to fill with meat.

3. Skin the tomatoes, chop.
    (In the winter a quart of canned 'maters can be used.)

4. Place as many peppers that will fit in a lined crock pot.
    Fill with meat mixture.

5. Pour chopped tomatoes around and on top of peppers.
 
6. A small amount of water may need to be added to crock.

7. Cook on high for a few hours, then turn to low until peppers are tender.

8. Serve over rice or pasta.

9. Leftovers freezes well.

KNITTING WITHOUT NEEDLES

Joann Stores has introduced a neat new
yarn with loops. This is way to knit without needles.
At some point, I will probably try this,
but for now the cost is prohibitive,even with good coupons.
One skein is around ten dollars, and a small pillow pattern
takes 4 skeins.

To watch a video on this new product,
go to the following link:
