Tonight I am having problems with keeping my internet online. There seems to be a problem in my alley that needs to be fixed. (Suddenlink has been here 5 times in the past year to fix it but still isn't fixed.) Wednesday Suddenlink will come and try again. Really frustating. My tV sound and picture comes and goes, my internet connection comes and goes and my phone line is there and then the signal is dropped. Hopefully it can be fixed correctly this time. If it isn't I will visit all my neighbors again, ask if they are having the same problems, and if they are I give them a sheet of paper with the phone number to call. The cable company doesn't see it as a problem until there are several complaints. After 8 of my neighbors called last time in it suddenly a problem that needed to be resolved. Last time it worked better for almost 2 weeks.

I am not the only one in Lubbock having problems. The problems began when some company (I think ATT) dug up the alley to bury fiber optic lines. When they dug up the alley with a big backhoe they nicked lines (in almost every alley in Lubbock.) It seems it is a big problem to resolve where exactly the lines were nicked.

We really like this for a change. I have also used cream of mushroom soup, but am sure you can use any of the cream soups.It calls for cut green beans, but I've also used the French-style.

Is there anything more satisfying that a good Salisbury Steak?
We enjoy the wonderful sauce over mashed potatoes, but would
be good on steamed rice or buttered noodles too.

Salisbury Steak Recipe

1-1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 can French onion soup
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 tsp. salt
Pepper, to taste
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. prepared mustard
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp. flour

Mix thoroughly the beef, 1/3 cup sour, bread crumbs, eggs, salt and pepper and shape into 6 oval patties. Brown in a little oil in skillet; drain. Remove from skillet. Add to skillet the remaining soup, ketchup, Worcestershire and mustard. Gradually blend water into flour until smooth. Stir into soup mixture. Add meat back to the pan. Cover and cook on low heat , covered for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. I turn the meat over half way through the cooking time. I usually double the sauce mixture for more gravy, as like putting it over the patties and on mashed potatoes.

We think this cake is really good You can invert it after awhile and cut when cold, but I just leave it in the pan.

Earthquake Cake Recipe

1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 chocolate cake mix
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar

In greased 9x13" pan; sprinkle with coconut and pecans. Mix cake mix according to directions on package and put batter over nuts and coconut. Cream together the cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar and spoon over batter, but do NOT mix together! Bake at 350 for 50 minutes. Will be a little "wiggly" when removed from oven, but will firm up as it cools.

1 lb. any-size raw shrimp, peeled & deveined or 12 oz. ready to eat cooked shrimp
4 cups chilled spicy V-8 juice
Garnish: shrimp or cucumber slices

Bring 2 cups water & salt & pepper to boil in med. saucepan over high heat. Dice cucumber. When water boils, add shrimp, cook 1-3 min. Drain, cool under cold running water. Dry w/paper towels. Cut into bite-size pieces. Mix shrimp, cucumber & juice. Serve in glasses or bowls; garnish w/shrimp or cucumber.

This is wonderful to take in a thermal container to the beach. We took it every day in California along with slices of cheese and bread.

(Note! Be very careful where the shrimp comes from— do not buy from most places except the US. I order mine from Vital Choice.)

Bread Mixes from The Prepared Pantry

Weight Watcher Corner

Saturday when I weighed in I gained .6 of a pound. Last week, I didn't do anything wrong on Weight Watchers just wasn't one of those week I lost and weight. In the  past, I loose weight then inches. It is one of those week I need to step up activity. With Muscular Dystrophy there are not a lot of ways to do that. May have to go back to swimming several times a week. The past week it has been too hot to be outside much.

This roasted cauliflower recipe can be easily adapted to potatoes or broccoli. I have tried it with carrots too. I cut the carrots in chunks, cooked them a couple of minutes in the microwave and then roasted them in the oven. I am sure it can be used with lots of different veggies that I have thought of yet.

Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

Cooking spray
1 large cauliflower head, cut into small florets
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, mix together the cauliflower, olive oil, black pepper and salt. Pour the mixture onto baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cauliflower tips are slightly brown and tender.

Hash Browns Recipe

1-1/2 tablespoons canola or extra-virgin olive oil

1 medium white onion, diced
1 Serrano pepper, with some seeds, minced

1/2 teaspoon sea salt, divided

1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Heat the oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower, onion, Serrano pepper, vinegar, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Stir to combine. Cover and cook until the cauliflower begins to caramelize, about 7 minutes, stirring twice during cooking.

Remove the lid and continue to sauté until the cauliflower is fully cooked and caramelized as desired. Add the scallions, garlic, rosemary, and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, and sauté for 1 minute. Adjust seasoning.

Stir in or sprinkle with parsley, and serve immediately.
