Mr. P’s Delight

I just copied this recipe from my mother-in-law the other day, and it looks like a recipe I definitely want to make. It sounds delicious. I hope to try this soon and will post a picture when I do.

I switched the green pepper that her recipe called for, with red pepper. Only because red pepper is my favourite and I am not that keen on green pepper.



16 pork sausage

2 apples, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
2 green onions, chopped

Sauce – combine the following ingredients and put aside

3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup apple juice
2 Tbsp soya sauce
1 Tbsp vinegar

1 1/2 cups rice


Cook sausage and cut into bite size pieces.
Add chopped veggies and apple, and cook 1 minute.
Add sauce, bring to boil and boil 1 minute.

Stir in rice, remove from heat, cover and let stand 5 minutes.

Who is Mr. P? He is my MIL’s nephew and this was his favourite meal.

2015 Groundhog Day Prediction by Spanish Joe

Spanish Joe Time.jpg

Everyone once in a while, Spanish Joe likes to show off. Face it, he is one special hog!

Being that he is psychic, he wanted to leave his predictions early (beat that Punxsutawney Phil), so he could get back to his road trip. He is on his way down to Phoenix, his presence has been requested at Super Bowl 49. Apparently only Spanish Joe knows who the winner will be, and he’s not talking! Although rumour has it that he is stopping over in Vegas.

Back to the story……

…… it’s six more weeks of winter!

Make a fish finder into a portable fish finder

It’s ice fishing time and hubby is going to do some crappie fishing. It is much easier to have a portable fish finder to move from hole to hole. Problem is, he only has regular fish finders in his boat and doesn’t want to buy another one. Solution? Make on yourself.

Wacky Cake (easy, moist and it’s chocolate)

My mother used to make this when I was young (many, many years ago LOL), it’s fast, it’s easy, it’s moist ….. and it’s chocolate! This recipe is sifted, mixed and baked in the same pan. And there is no eggs, no milk and no butter!

Some say this recipe was invented during WWII when milk and eggs were scarce.

We traditionally served a piece of this delicious cake, warm, and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.

For those special days, my mother would split the cake in half, add a layer of cherries in the middle and topping with whipped cream of course!  Huge yummy there!

Serves: 12 people   Prep Time: 5 mins   Total Time: 45 mins


1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
4 Tbs dried cocoa (stirred before measuring to remove lumps)
1 tsp baking power
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs vinegar
5 Tbs oil
1 cup lukewarm water


Combine all the dry ingredients in an ungreased 8 x 8 square pan

Make 3 wells (holes) equally spaced in the mixture.

Pour oil in one, vanilla in one and vinegar in other.

Add warm water and mix well.

Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 mins or until done

Spanish Joe Groundhog Day Prediction

Spanish Joe Groundhog Day Prediction

Spanish Joe, waking from a deep sleep, rubbed his eyes with his little paws, slowly rolled out of bed (hey, you don’t think this famous groundhog lives in the ground do ya?), and put on his slippers.  Looking outside, sipping his wild grass tea, he said, “that sure does look cold out”.

After throwing open the front door to greet his special day, he slipped on the ice, falling into a huge snow bank. Staring up to the sky, he looked down to make sure he didn’t break his darn leg, and there it was…… his dreaded groundhog shadow.

So it’s official……. six more weeks of winter!

I heard him mumble “how do these human types live in such harsh conditions” …. OK, there may have also been a few additional choice words, such as #*%&;#* and @&;*#*%, but Spanish Joe tries very hard to remain a family rated groundhog LOL

So Spanish Joe limped back into his warm house, kicked off those slippers that most likely caused him to slip on the ice, made a prank phone call to Punxsutawney Phil, slipped into his nice warm bed and went back to sleep, vowing not to wake up until all this @&;*#*% snow disappears.
