When my daughter and I were in Columbia the other day, we stopped at the 63 Diner for a bite to eat. It's one of our very favorite places in Columbia. The food is reasonable and good and they play my kind of music! Oldies but goodies...guess you can tell that by seeing Elvis and the rest of the decor! The Coca Cola seats on the inside of the door are where you can sit if you have to wait a bit to be seated. It's a very popular place and there is sometimes a long line of people waiting to get in. Most of the waitresses wear full skirts with the full petticoats we used to call "can cans" under them. If you just want an ice cream treat, I can tell you that the old fashioned chocolate sodas with whipped cream and a cherry on top are divine! Here's Elvis again:
My cucumbers are finally beginning to get big enough to eat although as my photo below shows the plants are not really very big yet. In spite of all the rains we've had, the soils looks dry since it's been so very hot.
I've look everywhere for my frozen cucumber recipe that I've had for many years. It is a good way to put up cucumbers if you don't want to make pickles. We like them very much. I found some recipes online that I might have to try. They looked very similar to how I remember making it. If they turn out well, I'll post the recipe. Hope my own shows up!
Of course I found where I had written down my frozen corn recipe in 3 different places. Doesn't that just figure...ha ha! It's a good recipe too. You cut the corn off the cobs and put in a kettle with butter, etc. To serve, just thaw and heat through. Very good. I'll share that one later. We didn't plant corn this year, I miss having it. Oh, heck...I'll just go ahead and share the frozen corn recipe now. Some one in blogland may have lots of corn already! It's easy and yummy, I've used this recipe a lot over the years.
16 cups corn (cut off cob)
6 cups water
1 cup sugar
4 tsp salt
Mix together and boil 3 minutes. Then add
1 1/2 sticks butter or margarine. Let butter melt.
Cool and put in freezer containers and put in
freezer. To serve, thaw and heat through.
Do you have a garden? We just planted some tomato and pepper plants near the house. Then a few cucumber plants and a couple of zucchini plants in the garden. Can't wait for the tomatoes! They're a favorite of mine. Think sandwiches!!
Until next time...
