Must tell ya one more thing before food business.. Hurley had a huge issue/problem while visiting us here in NJ... you see he lives in hot sunny Florida, and ventured into our NJ ocean, which he considers cold..wimp... He said Donna it was so cold, I needed a broomstick shoved up my ass to get my dIck back out. Dontcha just wanna be his best bud? You will laugh, you will eat, you will drink, you will be in danger. Oh yes, we laughed. This is my sis in law , Hurleys wife Sandy. He cut our damned heads off... see tequila effects you too big guy!Didja know my BIL Hurley is very consciously aware of our natural resources and our environment? One of his other famous Hurleyisms is If its yellow, let it mellow, If its brown flush it down. Ill miss you both, come back soon.
Here I have for you a couple of the buncha things we chowed down on while imbibing and partaking.. I offer you pan fried onion dip. Original recipe here. It has been a go to of mine for quite a few years, betcha have all the ingredients on hand. Simple to make, great flavor. Start by getting your onions, cutting them in half , then in 1/8 inch thick half rounds. Now heat your butter and oilin a large saute pan on medium heat. Add your onions, cayenne, kosher salt, and pepperand saute for 10 minutes. Reduce your heat to medium low and cook , stirring occasionally for 20 minutesuntil onions are browned and caramelizedAllow them to cool. Now place your cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise in a bowl and beat till smooth. Add your onionsmix well. Taste to season and season to taste.Serve at room temp. I like to double the cayenne for a little extra zing. Next up I have some peanut butter balls I made for all the kids. This is a favorite of all children, and most adults, even the fighters of flames enjoy these no bake treats. I believe they are also known as buckeyes. These always grace my cookie tray at Christmas.. I make about 15 different cookies each year, how bout you? To start get these 4 ingredients together,confectioners sugar, peanut butter, butter, and vanilla. Mix them well.
