I used this burgundy wine that I buy from the Navy Exchange. I hope I don't offend anyone with this picture. Our family never drinks wine but I do use it occasionally for cooking. (Cooking wine has too much salt.) I also use this Livingston Cellars wine because most other wines use casein (dairy product) in the production of wines. LC does not.
Tonight at 9 pm, I finally took the corned beef out of the oven, and it was delicious! Tender but not falling apart. The recipe calls for 2/3 cup of red wine.
Anyhow, the burgundy wine gave the meat a really nice flavor. Hubby loved it!
Here's a quick picture of a jello mold I made yesterday. Hubby and I loved it...but my children couldn't even swallow it! It contains lime jello, cucumber, horseradish, vinegar, onion and salt. As I read the recipe to type this, I learned that it also contains mayo! I forgot to put it in...and it was good without. Oh well.
For you local folks who sew, Mary sells gingher scissors for excellent prices. Even cheaper than Joann's Fabrics' half off sale. If you want directions, send me an email.
The week is flying by. Today is the last cold day before a gradual warming up. I noticed the amish are tilling their fields in a big way. Won't be long til spring!
Many blessings ~ Kathie
