Pumpkin Pie

Halloween is here, and everyone is getting there pumpkins carved and ready for the big night.
Just a reminder that after the guts are removed and seeds are gone, you can scrape the pumpkin with a spoon and get all that good meat from the inside to make your own pumpkin butter, or add in for pumpkin bread, pancakes, muffins, pies, and so much more.
Also, by scraping the pumpkin, it makes it easier to carve for the younger ones.
If you search around, you could always find a helpful pumpkin like this one to help you...

Happy Halloween !

My A-1 Steak Sauce

Let me tell you, I don't care what kind of sauce it is, or who makes it, when you want something on your steak, you reach for A-1.
Nothing even comes close.
There are some cuts that I just want a little salt and pepper with, and I cringe when I look over and see someone drown a perfectly good piece of meat with ketchup

Most people will agree with me, and will refuse anything else on their meat.
Here in the past few years, A-1 has been advertised as a topping on burgers, and as an ingredient in meatloaf.
I haven't been that far yet, but a few years ago, I got something started at the place I frequent for breakfast, and I always hear a little noise about it when someone new decides to join us to eat.

I always get the scrambled eggs and fried potato's, but depending on the day, depends on what I get with it.
I am in a rural area, so sausage is available fresh, so is the bacon, and some mornings steak.
One morning in particular, our favorite eatery had a surplus of strip steaks, and had put them on the morning specials.
Happy Day ! Steak specials all around !
Naturally, when I applied my A-1 to my steak, I went ahead and and covered my taters, and said what the heck, covered my eggs as well.
This has stuck, and to this day, no matter what I get with my special, you can bet I am covering my eggs with A-1.
There is always the noobie that sits down and looks with the strange face and always makes the comment, but always has to try it.
