Well, it took me 3 weeks to get back but, I’m finally here. It was the hard drive on my computer. The good news is I got it fixed, all of my baby (Grandson for those that don’t know) and Army (my son) pictures were saved. The food pictures all were corrupted by the virus…boo!! The most important ones were saved and for that I am truly thankful. It also only cost $35 and I didn’t even know he could save the pictures, he just did it!! Woot! I would highly recommend him 🙂
That was the 3rd or 4th hard drive (I lost track) I have put in that computer though and it’s only about 2 1/2 – 3 years old. I wasn’t too keen on putting anymore hard drives in it but, now I have it if I ever need it. I have wanted a Mac for years and I broke down and finally bought one. I have a friend that is knowledgeable (thanks Jay!) about computers and such techy things and he told me what one he would buy, so I bought it! Should that money (income tax) be used towards hospital bills? Sure, but I’m tired of paying on those each month and having barely anything left for me. So, I got a lil crazy and bought a Mac. Yolo right? 😉 (That’s for you Biz!).
I have to say I love this Mac but, it does take time to learn things. I really do need to buy the book “Mac for idiots” instead of continually bugging my friends with Macs…lol!
Anywho, I’m back in the game and have missed all my blogging friends and your blogs! The recipe I have today is for Matzo Ball Soup. I have seen it on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives about 49 times and it looks so good I finally had to make it myself. I still cannot make dumplings to save my life but, I CAN make matzo balls! I couldn’t find matzo meal here and had to order it online, here is the link if you need it.
Let’s get cooking shall we…
Matzo Ball Soup
1/2 c. matzo meal
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 T. reserved chicken fat or vegetable oil
1 t. salt
1/4 t. black pepper
2 T. chicken stock or seltzer (I used seltzer)
3 quarts chicken stock
2 1/2 c. shredded, cooked chicken
1-2 carrots, thinly sliced
a few sprigs of dill
In another pan let your carrots, stock and dill simmer on a low boil until the carrots are tender. Once tender add your chicken and turn to a low simmer.
In another medium pot bring 1 1/2 quarts of well-salted water (should taste like the sea) to a brisk boil.
Reduce it to a slow boil. Run your hands under water so they are thoroughly wet. Form matzo balls by dropping spoonfuls of matzo ball batter approximately 1 inch in diameter into the palm of your wet hands and rolling them loosely into balls.
You can see how the matzo ball mixture firms up…
Note: Once the matzo balls are done if you have any leftover put them in a separate bowl, if you leave them in the salt water they’ll get soggy and sink and no one like soggy balls. You can also use rotisserie chicken for this recipe.
This was a combination of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives recipe and also from here.
Have a great weekend y’all and a wonderful St. Patty’s Day too!
