Good morning! I'm here!!! Sorry, been busy with Dega! We took him to the vet and it was his back! Dachshunds are notorious for their back problems. I have to keep him still and quiet for six to eight weeks! That's no easy task for a hyper dog. He's on lots of meds that are making him groggy, so that's helping keep him quiet. Doing everything possible to avoid the back surgery. He almost lost the use of his back legs, but he's much better now. Still walks like a little old man at times, but he's at least using his back legs. Scared me to death!! 8)

Be back in a few minutes to post a couple of "inspiration" recipes for you! :)

Thanks ya'll! Happy to report, he gets a little stronger every day.

Needless to say, I've been going the easy route with cooking lately. So this is what I've been up to this week.


Sunday, I made an easy eye of round roast. Seasoned the roast with 1 tsp. kosher salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp dried thyme and about 5 garlic cloves (chopped). Made a paste of that (a drizzle of olive oil to hold it together) and rubbed that all over the roast. Put it in a 500 degree oven for about 20 minutes. (Or 7 minutes per pound for rare). This is the best part of this recipe, then I turned the oven OFF. Do not open the oven door. Leave the roast in the oven for 2 1/2 hours. This has become my favorite way to make roast beef! Foolproof!

Monday, Labor Day, we had bbq ribs. I'm sure I've posted this recipe before, but in case you missed it, here it is again:

4 lbs pork ribs
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp hickory smoked salt
1 Tbs smoked Paprika
1 Tbs garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne (optional)
Your favorite barbecue sauce

Line a cookie sheet with two sheets of heavy duty foil. Mix all the dry ingredients together and rub on all sides of ribs. I like the pork country style, since they're already cut into ribs so keeps the prep work down to a minimum. Put the ribs on the foil, meaty side down, cover with another sheet of foil. Bake at 300 degrees for 2 1/2 hours. Uncover and brush on your favorite bbq sauce, run under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, flip them over and repeat. Easy ribs!

Tuesday, I roasted a whole chicken, stuffed with fresh thyme, a whole lemon (cut in half) and a whole pod of garlic (cut in half). Sliced one onion, one fennel bulb, several carrots and red potatoes. Threw the stuffed chicken on top and roasted at 400 for about 2 hours. Seasoned the outside with kosher salt, garlic powder, black pepper, a little paprika (makes the skin a pretty brown) and a little Cajun seasoning.

Wednesday (last night) we had steaks.


That's all I can remember! lol DH is out of town tonight, so I'll be having leftovers.

Lucy, hope you're inspired by something I've posted! :)

Everybody have a wonderful day!

What on earth happened? Please don't beat yourself up! I can't tell you how many disasters I've had in the kitchen! You can ask DH! He will happily tell you all my experiments that ended badly. And believe me, they are many! ;)

Was it the roast recipe you asked me about? :|
