Things to Do with Stale Bread

If you make croutons and then have left overs. Use them as breading/ coating for chicken or pork chops. Then they are seasoned and you use the bread a third time.

Brining beans? Yes!

I like this idea will try next time. Dry beans are so much more economical than canned beans. The price has jumped even on the dry ones. Can you tell me how to can my own beans? I have planted a garden and will have plenty of beans. Most will be dried but would like to know if canning them is an option.

Cobb Salad Dip

Yes add the tomato and hard- boiled egg and the idea of layering is great. You could add a small amount of shredded cheese. Serve with tortilla chips.

Chili cook-off

Here's more information: The cook off is for our church group to raise fund for the missions we support. I went to the CASI site but it was just forms. Here is what we have thought of so far..... Advertise in the local paper for cooks and on the local radio. We would ask some local pastors to be the judges since it is a church event. We are thinking of charging a 25$ entry fee for teams and then sell the chili for a dollar a bowl to the public. A question that has been asked is how do we get a crowd to come and see the cookoff? I thought a car show might be good. Keep all the comments coming it helps alot.

The Savvy Wedding

ladylizzard if you have a year to prepare if you can buy things on when they go on sale that will save you money. Without the details it's hard to tell you what to do. All of the summer stuff is on sale now at draztic prices if you need a tent or summer motif things now is the time to buy. If you are having a bar catch the wine on sale and the hard stuff too. Buy it on sale is the best advise if you know what you need.

Homemade BBQ Sauce - Do you?

BBQ sauce is easy. My kids wanted some sauce for short ribs. I just knew I had a bottle in the pantry.Nope nothing. So I'm looking for something and there in the fridge is ketchup well thats a start. So into the pan it goes on low heat a nice dash of onion powder and of course brown sugar. If I had some liquid smoke I would have added that. I did add worchester sauce. It was better than store bought and quick for what I needed. And I got rave reviews!!!!!
