Runaway Baked Onion Rings

Good Evening dear readers,  here's the other recipe I promised.  This one is definitely a keeper.  You want to know how I know because the boys ran off with the plate.  They have a very distinctive yummy flavor. I like the fact no frying was involved.  They were really easy to make.  I got the recipe from an old issue of Taste of Home.  I did change it up a little and  you'll like what I did to the recipe.  So here's what you'll need.

2 large sweet onions
2 eggs
1-1/2 cup corn flakes here's where I did the which I used frosted flakes instead
2 teaspoons of sugar only use if not using the frosted flakes
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt

Cut and peel the skin off the onion.  Cut onions into 1/2 in. slices;  separate into rings.  whisk eggs in shallow bowl.  In another bowl crush cornflakes add sugar, paprika, garlic salt and seasoned salt. Dip onion rings in egg mixture then dip in corn flakes.  Arrange on a greased cookie sheet and cook at 375 degree for 15-20 minutes.  Bon Appetite and enjoy.

No-Fuss Potato Salad-An MS Moment Fail

Good Morning dear readers,  I finally made the semi home made potato salad. It did not turn out the way I had hoped it would.  The potatoes were a little too thin and the sauce just wasn't there.  So I'm posting this has a fail you can try it and tell me how it went for you.  I like the concept of using the box potatoes because no stress on my bad knee.  You know me love easy no standing around recipes. So here's what you'll need.

1 package scalloped potatoes
3 2/3 cups water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
2 hard cooked eggs, chopped
Paprika, optional

Set the sauce packet aside to use later from potato box.  In a large pot add potatoes and 3 cups water bring to a boil.  Once boiling let simmer for 15-20 minutes.  Rinse with cold water drain and put in bowl, cover and refrigerate.  In another pot melt butter add sauce packet  and gradually add the remaining water stir until smooth.  Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Stir mayonnaise and mustard into sauce then add to the potatoes.  Add chopped eggs and sprinkle top with paprika.  

Note in talking with Conor I think we forgot to boil the sauce.  I call that an ms moment.

                                                       Boil it before putting it in the bowl

Rubber Stamp Thrifting Haul

Good Morning dear readers, when I went to get Frankie's stuff the other day I paid a visit to the thrift store. They never fail to surprise me. It was a pleasant surprise.  I've been seeing stampin up stuff online and been wanting to get some but with my budget got to watch it.  I found a package from stampin up of 11 stamps and the clam shell stamp from Michael's all for under $5.  I was in art journaling heaven.  So here's a pic and be sure and check your thrift stores you never know what you'll find.

Update On Frankie

Good Evening dear readers,  Frankie had his visit to the vet and yes he has another bad sinus infection.  He is currently on antibiotics and nose drops (ever try to give an 8 lb cat nose drops).  He is doing a lot better and his breathing has greatly improved.  He will be getting an x-ray after he's finished his meds to check for the underlying condition suspected Asthma.  Odd form of treatment is he's having to eat goats milk yogurt in his food, of course he gives me dirty looks when I put it in his food.  He does eat it and is doing fine.  Here's pic's of him feeling better.

Journal 52 Prompt--Tech

Good Evening dear readers,  Well Frankie is feeling better and I got to finish my page in time.  I based my page on my computer crash where I was offline for two weeks.  I ran into the thrift shop today and found a lot of cool rubber stamps which I will put in another blog post.  I gesso'd the page and then covered it with apple red acrylic paint and then ran a small brush of light green acrylic paint.  I rubber stamped around the edges in black studio g ink.  I then glued the pictures which I got from magazines and newspapers.  Then took the letter stencil and wrote out computer crash in yellow and didn't like how that look then changed to a black oil pastel crayon and now its done.
