My first post on the Mac without assistance. I believe I can do this! I thought I would share a picture of my clematis. I think it is very pretty this year. Very exciting day today. We will finish language for the year. Yeah! I will be spending most of my day washing clothes. The wringer will get a work out today. We have had rain all week. I put off during the laundry hoping for sun today. We’ll see. Right now it doesn’t look too promising. The wringer is kinda fun to use though and I am getting faster at it. It requires more attention than the automatic machine. Last nights supper was baked chicken, green beans, stuffing, sweet potatoes and home made rolls. Watermelon for dessert. I am experimenting with using less salt in our food as I have been having some high blood pressure issues. I marinaded the chicken in a Mrs. Dash marinade(no salt). It was really good. I have a cookbook that tells how to make different types of seasonings. The other night I made a taco seasoning to use on our chicken tacos. (Chicken was on sale this week at our local grocery) I did not put any salt in the seasoning and honestly could not tell it was not there. Here is the recipe I used: 2 tsp minced onion, 1 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp cornstarch, 1/2 tsp crushed dried red pepper, 1/2 tsp minced garlic, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1/4 tsp dried oregano. If you want to use salt, the recipe calls for l tsp. As I said, I used no salt and could not miss it. I got this recipe from my (and Jessica’s) all time favorite cookbook. ”Mennonite Country-Style Recipes & Kitchen Secrets” by Esther H. Shank. This is a marvelous cookbook. If I had to choose only one cookbook to use, it most definitely would be this one. Well, my friend the wringer, is calling to me. Take care and God bless.
