Strawberry Picking with the girls. We got 10lbs. You will be seeing lots of Strawberry recipes.

Leftover Beef Recipe #1

My husband looks forward to Saturday and Sunday because I always make a big breakfast. I let him and Alex choose what they would like. This morning I made him an omelet using the jalapenos I pickled and the left over beef from the roast.

I sauteed about 2/3 cp of beef with about 1/4 cp. of the jalapenos and I added some of the brine to keep the beef from drying out.

I used 4 eggs and a splash of h2o and put it in a greased pan. I added some chipotle pepper to the top of the egg.
I flipped the egg and let it cook for 2 more minutes
Added the cooked beef and about 1/2 cp of Cheddar cheese Flipped it onto a plate topped with a little more cheese and peppers.
Geoffrey loved it!

Pickled Jalepenos for Geoff

My husband loves jalapenos. He called home yesterday with some really good news and was basically floating. I wanted to make him something special.I pickled jalapenos for him. I tried them and they are very good. Geoff thinks that they need to be spicier....I am going to throw a habenero in the mix next time.

Pickeled Jalapenos

2cps. white distilled vinegar

2cps. water

1/2cp. olive oil

3 bay leaves

1 heaping TB of mustard seeds

3 dried red chillies

It is pretty simple. Throw it all in a pan and boil it for about 10 minutes. Then I washed and sliced my jalapenos and put them in a plastic conatainer (You can use a jar too and boil in a water bath to can). After the brine was ready I dumped them over the jalapenos and put it in the fridge....WHOOLA!
