Pineapple Jerky

Have you ever heard of such a thing? I was approached by Jerky.com to give it a try.

Honestly I didn't know what I was getting. I figured it was a meat jerky with a pineapple flavor. Boy was I wrong! AND VERY PLEASANTLY SURPRISED!!

This what I got:
This is BETTER than candy!!! It is tender and chewy, sweet but not too sweet!

What I’m most impressed about this product is the ingredients list. Pineapple and honey. That’s it. Which is very cool considering the long lists of weird ingredients you can't pronounce that you find on most snack packages these days. Plus the pineapples are from beautiful Maui in Hawaii so they must be good for you!

I am amazed by the products that they have on their website! Not just Beef Jerkey, but Turkey Jerky and great gift baskets too!!

Check it out.

Cream of Asparagus Soup

I made this soup last night and it was so easy. I literally threw it together and made up the recipe as I went......

Cream of Asparagus Soup

Cut 1 bunch of asparagus into sections about 1-2 inches long
Boil the asparagus in about 1/2 quart of chicken stock (that's all I had left in my open box, add a teaspoon of black pepper, salt and garlic.
In a microwave safe bowl melt 1 cup of butter (I used the new "I can't believe it's not butter" squares.
Add 3/4 cup of flour to the butter and make a paste.
I added some crumbled cheese to the paste.
Ladle out about 1 cup of the stock and add it to the paste, mix to make it creamy.
When the asparagus is cooked add the flour mixutre to the pot and combine with the stock. Use a wisk.
I added about 2 cups of milk to the mixture to get it to the right consistency.


There you have it. I was very easy and VERY GOOD!!!! My kids cleaned their bowls.
