Swedish Meatballs! A FLASH BACK!!

 This is for Ross, our son-in-law. He said his Grandma used to make Swedish meatballs, I had a flashback!!! I used to make these little yummy balls for my family when I was in high school and continued making them after I was working in the 1970's. They are quick and yummy! I am not sure where my recipe came from, as I was in Home Economics in high school, and think possibly it came from class handouts?? I remembered a lot of the ingredients and tweeked it, to bring it into this decade!!

Cutout cookies that do not spread!

We have 7 days! These are fast and good!
What I wanted was a cookie that didn't spread!!! I was making Giant ginger bread men cutouts for the kiddo's to decorate after the turkey dinner on Thanksgiving. I didn't want the baked cookie to spread or be soft. I researched on the internet and found many recipes that looked promising, but.....when I baked them, it was a no go!  Finally, I figured out a tasty, quick method!

Instant Pot Butternut Squash Soup- Jean George

This Butternut Squash Soup is Jean George's recipe, that I was privileged to observe in a cooking demo, years ago. Ten plus years later, I went to the famous Jean George's in New York, (Trump Hotel Central Park, first floor) and had this very soup!! Ever since then, I’ve fallen in love with Jean George's Butternut Squash Soup. I love the kick of the cayenne pepper!

Flemish Veal Stew

Hello! It's been a while! I took a month and a half break ....something I havent done in over 6 years! During my break, Wee Bear and I went to Nashville and Memphis ....LOVE! then we boarded a newly built paddle boat down the Mississippi River....I highly recommend this trip aboard the Duchess on American cruise line, we had the owners suite, however, all the suites and rooms or lovely on this boat. (not a ship) We met lots of fun people and ended the cruise in New Orleans. After arriving home in Seattle, we had five days to pack up and start our commute to our Winter home in Scottsdale. We took our time visiting family and friends the entire way, also, spending 4 nights in Laguna Beach(one of my favorite places). I'll post a couple photo's below.
