No Words Just Photos


  1. Old NFO - pretty hard to beat a good biegnet

    oldokie - it was a gift from his parents and very much appreciated.

    Mark - thanks!

    OldAFSarge - yes, indeed, I always enjoy the time I don't have to be living out of a suitcase.

  2. This recipe makes a large batch, but the dough can stay refrigerated for a week. Much tastier than Cafe Du Monde's box mix, and easy to prepare.

    The recipe is from a friend named Bernice:

    11/2 cup warm water
    1pkg yeast
    1/2 cup sugar
    7 cup flour
    1 tsp salt
    1 cup evaporated milk
    2 eggs
    1/4 cup softened butter
    Dissolve yeast in warm water
    Add sugar,salt,eggs,milk and blend well
    Mix in 4 cups flour, beat til smooth
    Add butter, then remaining 3 cup flour
    Cover and chill overnight in fridge
    Roll out dough 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured counter
    Cut into 3 inch squares
    Fry in hot oil (350-375)
    Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
    This makes quite a large batch, but I fried up about 1/4 of
    dough at a time and held the rest in the fridge
    Enjoy!! eat some for me! Bernice

  3. WOW! Being a long-time assistant to numerous Canines, as a Human Personal Assistant, I have NEVER seen the intensity of a gaze/stare than comes from a dog intent on tasting what People are eating! My Sadie has that same look in her Baby Browns when she sees I am eating ANYTHING tastier than beach sand! And I have NO resistance, even though I keep a list of NEVER FOODS FOR DOGS right there in my kitchen! Sadie doesn't get anything on the list, but she is managing to get (at least a taste) of items not on the list!

    BTW, Sadie is five-years-old, and her Vet says there's not an ounce of fat on her 65-pound frame!

  4. You mean you LIKE that chicory coffee?!?!

    1. It may be an acquired taste, but coffee with a little chicory added is delicious. _Especially with beignets :-)

  5. Thanks for the recipe Reg!

    Murphy - she's got that look down.

    Peripatetic Engineer - I haven't tried it yet, but I know Partner enjoys

  6. Looks like my dog when she smells the sausage on my plate. I'm such a sucker for the pitiful look...
