Pecans and Kielbasa goodness..
I got a letter yesterday telling me that I was in the top 20 in the state for Ranch Sorting Points :)
I have a patient that I call Grandpa, he's also known as the spoon man, since he has like a thousand spoons glued to his old ford truck. and he also plays the spoons, really well! Well, he and Grandma shell pecans at night.. and he brings them in by the pound zip lock bag full, and I sell them for him....
But, I got some the other day for My Cowboy.. and he ate like two or three and asked me to roast them:
1 lb Pecans
4 tbsp salted butter
salt to taste
spread out the pecans on a baking sheet.
cut the butter up into small little cubes and spread out chunks over the pecans, then salt them.
Pre heat the oven to 300*F
Bake them for 10 minutes on one side, flip/stir them around and bake for another 10 minutes.
Viola... Roasted Pecans..
Crock Pot Kielbasa and Sauer Kraut
1 lb Kielbasa
28-ish ounces of Sauer Kraut
2 Russet potatoes
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp caraway seeds
Cut the Kielbasa up into chunks, and the potatoes into big chunks. Place them at the bottom of the Crock Pot, then put the sauerkraut on top of the potatoes. Sprinkle the caraway seeds and brown sugar on top. then place the Kielbasa on top of that... Put the cooker on low wait about 8 hours...
It was yummy!!
Yesterday I also rode Kizzy, I love that horse... My dad had came over in the morning and he rode his horse pokey.. We had a pretty good ride... the arena was a little mushy in places so we just did a little walk/trot workout..
That is about all that is going on around here...
We go to see John Anderson tonight at the Opera house :)
