Taleggio Thursday / 2-21-19

Taleggio Thursday EveryOne
Ta-dah, ta-dah, ta-dah, It’ a wonderful wacky day in the neighborhood, but ready or not here it comes with all its knots and stumps and broken branches. Our mission today is to get off this mountain and out past the tree line before dark sets in and make it down without any broken bones or complete loss of mind. So before we loose control of things, let’s get those hikers pulled on and take hold of that staff as we are going to need it today. I have said and still hold to that Thursdays are the workhorse day of the week. It’s that day we need to round up all the loose ends, cut the projects are not going to pan our and reinforce the ones that are. We need to seek out those tail chasers, those choke weeds, those sap suckers and eradicate them, and take what’s left and get it going in the right direction. The journey for this week has gone though may trials and rough travels, but we are getting closer to the finish and we need to stay the course and keep on plowing forward. Life is not always easy and it is not what we do so much during the good times but what we do and how we handle the bad times. But there are those that the bod times have overcome them, and those that even worse has happened, When we come on them we will stop and lend a hand and listen and see them to the next care center. We are all one step, one heartbeat, one paycheck away from being in the same place so have some compassion and true concern is at the heart of our attention of those in need. Now, we need to turn our attention on getting going, finding that start line and setting our focus and eyes on what needs to be accomplished today and get to it. Let’s give it all we’ve got and in the process go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long.

Something Different & Easy Skillet Fish Dinner / 2-20-19

Normally I would give a story, a tip, something else. Today, is a little different, as we got the world this afternoon that my niece, at the age of 36 has passed away after a multiple years battle with cancer. She and her husband were pastors at a Presbyterian Church in New Jersey with 2 younger children. Life is not always fair, and this is one of those times that we all hate to hear about. My Mother, passed away at age 58 (also my age at the time or writing) of colon cancer, which was bad enough, then about 7 years ago we lost my younger sister at age 60, no kids and a performing pianist who perform internationally. My Father who is still with us at nearly age 92 is in fairly good health, hey look at any 92 year old jalopy and you’re going to find some things going on it no matter how good it looks LOL. But has now said goodbye to 2 wives, a daughter, and now a granddaughter. As I spoke to Dad today about my niece Becky passing away we both were able to reflect a bit, grieve, and laugh together. We understand that there is for many of us a higher calling and hope that this is not all there is, and our hope is not early based. This concept may be foreign to some, “too religious for others, and just ridiculous to others. But this is what we hold to, and it is what enables us to see past the ugly of today into the beauty of tomorrow. For us life is not necessarily about the finite, relatively short span we have here on this earth but about the infinite eternal with the one who made us. Some of us do not take the time to spend thinking much on this, we push it to the back of our minds, until something like this happens. But her and her husband were so committed to it that they gave their lives to spreading the hope of tomorrow and the peace of today in being co-pastors. Talk about were the rubber meets the road, do they abandon what they have believe because of caner or do they hold onto harder what they believe to give them comfort through it all. So young, so much from out eyes ahead, but the one who made her called her home. Now what do we do with it from there? Do we heed the call or do we craw back into our holes ignoring the signs hoping it never effects us. The bell will sound, the time will come, when the time is up, what will we give in accountability for what decisions we have chosen while here on this side of the eternal. Something to ponder, something to think about. death is not a lover of life and gives no regards to age, creed, religion, race, life’s preferences, it will come, what will be your response? I pray you do not have to deal with this, or that when the time comes your ending is a peaceful one, and until then you are able to live life to the fullest.
And may that fullest be able to include some wonderful times right here on old Cape Cod.
Local businesses, this week I have been really hungry to go out, first for breakfast and one of the places that I love to go to is the Hole-In-One in Orleans. Only problem is working so much during the week does not allow me to go out much. Working out of my home I do not go out and drive by someplace that I would stop in. So I have to plan my weekends and Saturday mornings is when I like to go and this time of year is the best because I don’t have to wait long so I get to sleep in longer before going to eat. Hole-in-One has great food, great baked goods and great atmosphere. And they have good parking out back and I have several different ways to get there. And best of all is they don’t brake my piggy bank to enjoy a good breakfast. All right in the heart of Orleans.
Another place we love to go to when we are out and about is DJ’s Family Sports Pub in Hyannis right behind the railroad tracks off Willow. My problem is I love their wings so much that I forget that have so much more. So from time to time I have to force myself to look at the rest of the menu, and behold the ribs, are total YUM, and their burgers are excellent as well. I could just go up and down the menu and brag on it all but hey, why don’t you just go and check them out for yourself, and don’t forget then do deliver (limited distance).
There are so many places I want to try and so little time and not enough money to do it with. If only I could win the lottery or make the right investments or, this or that or, or, or. Really? I also good well enough that why spend all my money on eating out when I can cook it myself. LOL. Anyway We all need a kitchen break from time to time so get out while you still can and visit some of our local best and enjoy a good meal out. We have so many excellent places that really there is no excuse to say you can’t find someplace good to eat.
Welcome my friends, and I hope that this visits finds you in good health. As we look at the wanters around Cape Cod, the months of February, March, and April seem to have been those that have seen the most in ship wrecks then other months. It is said on several sights that 50 mile stretch from off Chatham to around Provincetown contains over 3000 shipwrecks over the years. In February of 1942 it is suspected that a cargo ship went down as the result of being torpedoed. In February of 1952 a tanker broke up about a mile off Monomoy Island. And back in February of 1907 a schooner caught fire and sank northeast of Nobska Light. (You can check out Wikipedia, National Park Services Site NewEngland.com and more on these and more.) Lately we have not had to worry about much going on around us and for that we are most grateful. But the dangers are still there and quite real to smaller crafts and fishing vessels and we need to keep them all in mind when this time of year comes round. We do not need any fatalities due to negligence or not being aware of the changes that have been going on through the winter months. The winds that howl echo the voices of too many spirits with unsettled business and seeking loved ones that gets very eerie sometimes, and we don’t need to add to those numbers. There are those evenings like this week with the rising of the full Snow Super moon that it seems to be the most active, and from time to time one can grab a glimpse of a spirit within the spray of the the beacon light, of the fog and haze that is illuminated by the light of the moon. They are there, then not, than a voice, a cry, then silence. You just feel bad for them hoping that sometime somewhere they can find what they are looking for and lay down for eternity in rest. Not all believe in these, but they have not spent much time with me is all I can say. Anyway, I hope the weather does not play bad tricks on you and take you places you wish not to go or end up in situations that are not of your planning. And may the winds be still and sun rise higher and higher and be the warmth on your back. Time to get back to the chores around this station, I hope you great week ahead of you and may it be even better if you can do it right here on old Cape Cod.
As I noted last month this year it is a surf & turf year, the odd months we will do turf and the even surf. So fish it is for this month. With as much as I cook and as much as my mother cooked, and knowing that I used to be a fish monger in a meat and fish market outside Philadelphia many years back, the one things I feel the least skilled at in the kitchen is cooking fish. This year I am looking to add more fish to my diet and not by going out more to eat either. A couple Sundays ago I got some monk fish and baked it and turned out pretty darn good if I don’t say so myself. But I will be seeking out other recipes like the one I have today to offer. Also sheet-pan, one pot/pan, and even crockpot seafood recipes. My all time favorite however is the oven just because of the ease of it and the lower calories. So, I hope you join me this year as I get more comfortable with cooking seafood, cause we know I have no problems eating it. Now on with the show:

This week’s recipe: Easy Skillet Fish Dinner

2 ribs celery, chopped
1 cup green pepper, chopped
1 cup onion, chopped
2 tsp olive or canola oil
4 each plum tomatoes, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
dash pepper
1 lb cod, haddock, or other white fish
1/2 tsp seafood seasoning (my favorite Old Bay)
Hot cooked rice
Hot pepper sauce

In a skillet, saute celery, green pepper, and onion in oil until almost tender. Add tomatoes; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with fish fillets and sprinkle with seafood seasoning. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 6 minutes. Break fish into chunks. Cook about 3 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Service over rice. Service with hot pepper sauce if you like.

Abertam Wednesday / 2-20-19

Abertam Wednesday EveryOne
A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh A-weema-Wednesday it must be. (Thank you Lion King Song), So time to get up and be a Weeble that may Wobble but does not fall done, regardless of the rocks and rubble and grubble we need to climb over and around and through to get to the top of this hill. It has been one long week already but by the half way mark of today we will be halfway through the week. One step over the line sweet Jesus, One step over the line, (Thank you Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) we will be closer to the finish line that we will be to the starting line. So let’s get those hikers pulled on and take hold of that staff and our pack and let’s go getter done. Yes we will need to be aware of those who are in deeper need than us and be open to stopping and listing and lending a hand to help in whatever way we can. Then moving on and making the most of what is before us. So remember when we get to the top of the mountain take the time to look back and note just how far we really have made it to this point, then turn and survey where we need to go and then move off the backside of the mountain cause the day will only be half way done. Now we have a job to do , and we need to do it to the best of our abilities, and we need to go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long.

Emmental Tuesday / 2-19-19

Emmental Tuesday EveryOne
So you decided to come back for another round of torment today, LOL after yesterday I think some of us would rather be seeing this as Friday and not Tuesday, but life is what life is and we must go one. Time to stop and take account of some things, first most of us had a warm house we are in, we have food in our refrigerator, we have cloths to wear, we are not living in fear of our lives looking for a refugee camp for shelter and the list goes on. So what the heck are we hubba-ba-looing about, we need to pull on our big boy and big girt plants, pull on those hikers take hold of that staff and get it going. We should be so grateful to have a chance at what is before us, a new adventure, a new journey, new opportunities, why do are we so down? Why are we so in the dumpers? We need to take this week by the horns and ride this bull all the way to the end. Yes along the way we are going encounter those in much deeper pain then we are, and yes we will take the time to stop and listen and help in any way we can and see them to the next care center. Then we will move on and keep it going, not cause we want to but because we need to and are able to do. Regardless of what has happened, is happening or will happen we will keep it going and make the best of whatever comes our way. Now, let’s get it together and go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long.

Manchego Monday / 2-18-19

Manchego Monday EveryOne
OK, I have to admit, not every week when I sit down to write these letters and go to pound out the keys to put thoughts onto virtual paper does it happen easily. For whatever reason the ideas are slow to come, or near none excitant, and looking at a blank page is not helping. Monday mornings are a lot like this sometimes, you look for any motivation possible to kickstart the day let a alone the week, and the harder you look the less you find. But somewhere down deep, you know that you still have to find and go with it. It may not sound pretty, look pretty or even smell pretty but you have go to do it. So you pack up the bags, get the hikers pulled on and take hold that staff and head out to find the starting line and all the others that you need to plaster on that smile and do your best to give it your best. You know along the way we will encounter those that are in a lot worse case than we are and that we will be called on to stop and listen, and lend a hand in whatever way we can then move on. Life does not stop because we have issues, because we can not, “get it together”, because we can not find the left sock for the right shoe, but we find a way to collect ourselves, get to the line and give it our own. We have a mountain to climb and a journey to travel so let’s get this show on the road and go make the best of what lies before us, and in all we do let’s go make us a most Happy, Happy all day through all we have to do.

Deacon Friday / 2-15-19

Deacon Friday EveryOne
Wake Up, Wake Up and dance a gig of joy, we have arrived on this fine feathered Friday Morning and we are ready to rock the house to no end. But we have go to go it going and we need to finish strong. Fridays are not for the faint of heart or the weak of knee, let along the hazy, crazy, lazy ones who just want to find a rocking chair to waste away the day. We have come too far and spent too much time and resources to just let it all go to hell in a hand-basket. Before we get this day going, we need to trade out the hikers for the sprinters and put the staff away and get the visor out. Come as you are come as light as you dare to bare, the lighter the load the freer you will be to make this marathon sprint easier to handle. As for the theme of the week, these are all types of fish, yep fish, like the kind that swim in water? You got it, you might find them in different houses of worship but they are swimming in the right direction we hope. Any-who we have a race to finish a journey to bring to a close. The finish line is a days diligent work ahead of us and we need to finish strong. So point the nose to the finish and keep your eyes on the prize and let’s kick this thing down from beginning to end. Does this mean we get a pass on help those in need, absolutely not. They still hurt, they still have needs we can not fathom, they still need us to stop and listen, lend a hand and see them to the next care center. Then back on track and take it all the way to the finish line. Make sure you do not sacrifice quality for quantity, they both must coexist together in harmony and work well together or it will all fall apart and end in calamity. So let’s get to the line and give it all we’ve got and go make us a most Happy, Happy all day and all weekend long.

Preacher Thursday / 2-14-19

Preacher Thursday EveryOne
Morning, morning, morning how do you do, are you ready to go, go, go? It’s a wonderful day to be alive and well and it is going to be a great and glorious day if we chose to let it be and we do what we can to make it be. Thursday that workhorse day that make our way down off this mountain and out past the tree line, determining what is going to make it and what is going to be cut. What just needs redirected and straightened out and what is more crooked than a West Virginia mountain road and needs plowed under. So as we get ready to take on this challenge of this day, let’s get those hikers on and take hold that staff as need to head out to meet the party at the starting line. Did you ever thing that the adventures of life could take us in such a direction? I know some of you are scratching your heads going, have you really seen my week so far? It’s been dull, boring, as exciting as watching, well grass grow this time of year. But still you can always find a journey in even the boringest of days and weeks. Life is mostly what we make of it, what we do with what has been dealt us, and how we react to all that is going on around us and to us. So whether your weeks and days have been boring, mixed or exciting, the question is mainly what are you going to do with what has been given you? For me, for us to those we come on that need our help we will stop and listen and lend a hand then see them to the next care center. For me it will be practicing that attitude of gratitude, as it does not come naturally or easily. For me I will do what I must and try to take advantage of every opportunity that is placed before me no matter where the journey leads me. Are you with me, then let’s get it together and get this day on the move and let’s go make us a most Happy, Happy all day long.

More Life on the Cape. 2-19 & Curried Corn, Zucchini, and Bell Pepper Salad / 2-13-19

Oh what a wonderful season we are having, if only I were a hibernating bear or ground hog. The craziness with the temperatures are killing my electric bill and even with my wood burning insert it could be doing better if it was not either feast or famine. Meaning going light on the wood or trying to bounce it up when it get colder, but the bigger problem is that I started burning in mid November and normally I don’t start burning till sometime in December. So I am starting to get a little antsy and hoping I make it through March with the wood I have. And before you ask, no I don’t have the extra funds to just buy another cord, so I am stuck going month to month with higher electric and gas bills. Yuck, and I know some people would just die in my house with it being way too cool for them. But fortunately we do ok with it and have never been folks to have to have a “hot” house to live in. But life is what it is and we have to learn to adapt, even if that means putting on an extra blanket at night or putting on a heavier outfit during the day. And there is no escaping it as I work out of my home so I do not get the luxury of allowing someone else to pay for my daytime heating bill. At least I have a roof over my head to keep me dry and out of the elements, food for my stomach, and bed to sleep in. Too many, even here on the Cape do not have even that, so for that i am grateful. I now get it why so many head south for the winter of all ages, and after my back surgeries, and the cost of heating bills could almost pay for a winter place in one of them southern states that you rarely need heat, during these months. Ok I am laughing at this, as I do enjoy having 4 seasons and all that they bring. So before anyone goes off on why did you move here in the first place, can stuff that thought in your oil tank and second I came without knowing I would be experiencing back surgery and all that it brings on. Again, life is life and we all must cope with it and take the bad with the good. Even when it means we sacrifice some things to enjoy others. Life is good here on Cape Cod even if you have to look hard for it sometimes. No different than many other places in this state, part of the country, and further on, except we get to do it with sand under our feet. Hope you have a great and wonderful wherever you are but especially if you can do it right here on old Cape Cod.
So local business report, let’s take the on the Jelly and Jam makers. The Cape seems to have an abundance of not just good but great Jelly & Jam makers. Each has their own followers and groupies, but Im not sure you could go wrong with any of them. So not sure how to do this, but make a list check it twice and then load up with the English Muffins and go for broke. Some have brick and mortar stores others you will find their products in other shops and finally you have the artisan and crafter showers. The key is don’t get stuck on one and forget the rest, find a favorite then experiment with the rest. I am going to just put out the name, you will need to google or facebook or instagram them to find out
One of my favorites is Chatham Jam & Jelly Shop on Rt 28
Then there is Cape Cod Cranberry Harvest, find her online and in stores and at the summer shows.
Next up Bog Lily Kitchen, Jams & Granola, does mostly shows spring through fall. Really good.
Green Briar Jam Kitchen out of East Sandwich, a physical shop, and online.
Treasure by the Sea Jam and Jelly out of East Falmouth.
Preserves of Cape Cod, out of Osterville, find them online or in local shops.
BriarLane Jams & Jellies in Wellfleet and online. Great little place in summer right off Rt 6
As noted there are so many small kitchens that make it as a side business and do no advertising, dont have a facebook page or even a website. You just need to be at the right farmers market or crafters show, or even some of our local business friendly shops carry some of these smaller kitchen creations, so check the general stores as well. So hope I have given you some ideas and hope you find something sweet and tasty to share with friends and family or take home with your on your next visit. These are some very sweet treats.

Hello again, and glad to see you are surviving this crazy weather we have been having. These are the days and times that we who are the guardians of the beacon get our workouts. We need to be sure the lamp room is clear of any debris, there are no critters taking refuge up there. the windows are clean and clear, and the beacon is at full power. Then we take the trip down to the ground level and outside we go and make sure the fog horn is clean and free of any debris, with all the winds we’ve had over the past several days a lot of sticks and leaves have gotten sucked into the bell of the horn. Also this time of year the little critters like to take refuge in and around the horn as it gets them out to the direct weather. But if that thing goes off with then in it, it could be life threatening. at the worse. Those snow white outs can be as bad as dense fog, so we need both ready to go. What many don’t realize that even the lightest of snow blowing hard can cause near zero visibility so the shipping industry counts on that beacon to be at its best in these conditions. Surprising we also serve the community with those on the way home, being able to see the beacon and know that their home is nearby. Of those service people who are out and about knowing there is a beacon of hope through the evening. We are here in hopes you never need us but if you do we are at our best. Well folks I would love to stay and chat more but I need to make a check on several weather reporting stations and get them turned in. We will see you next time hopefully not as hectic. Don’t forget to check in with the Mrs as I know she has been baking again and take something with you. Hope y’all have a safe and stay warm, and especially if you’re doing it right here on old Cape Cod.
This weeks recipe is a vegetable based salad. I always find that more people will eat veggies in a salad than cooked. Most of the time that is because growing up their cooked veggies were mushy, over cooked and tasteless, or worse burnt. So they have developed an adversity to veggies, but put it in a salad, whether cooked or raw and even the veggie haters will give it a try. So give this one a try, the only cooking is for the dressing that goes over it, not the veggies themselves, so they remain crunchy and fresh and with flavor. Now on with the show before I start salivating all over the keyboard.

This week’s recipe: Curried Corn, Zucchini, and Bell Pepper Salad

1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
2 Tbsp fresh curry powder
2 cloves garlic, flattened
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ground pepper
2 large red bell pepper
5 large zucchini, quartered lengthwise
2 Tbsp olive oil
8 ears corn, or 2 -10 oz pkg frozen corn, thawed
1/2 cup red onion, chopped

Combine vegetable oil, curry powder, and garlic in heave small skillet. Stir over medium-low heat until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Cool Completely; discard garlic. Whisk mayonnaise, sour cream, honey, lemon, salt and pepper to blend in small bowl. Stir in curry mixture. (can be prepared a day in advance.)
You can grill or steam the bell peppers and zucchini, then cut cooked veggies into bite size pieces. Cut corn kernels from cobs. Add peppers, zucchini, and onion. Pour curry mixture over vegetables till coated. Cover and refrigerate. (can be done up to 6 hours ahead of time.) Bring to room temperature before serving. They say services 8, I would go with 6.

Bishop Wednesday / 2-13-19

Bishop Wednesday EveryOne
Hip-pity Hop, it’s time to get up, it’s time to get this–smorning. Rise and shine as we will shortly be on our way to that half-way point when we reach the middle of the day. That’s right folks, when we reach the top of this mound of ground of earth and rock we will be half way through the week. When we plan our flag and take that first stop off the back side we will be closer to the finish line than back to the starting line. That in and of itself is worth the effort to get moving out of that slumber lodge your cranial brainial are wanting to snuggle deeper down into. Hump-day, Over the top day, and a host of other names it can be called the bottom line however is that it’s another day for adventures, journeys and opportunities. So let’s get those hikers on and take hold that staff so we can get this day rocking as soon as possible. Wednesday is always a bag of mixed goodies, still dragging the donkey up the front face of the mountain, then once we get to the top and take the time to survey were we have come from and where we need to go, we just pray the trip down is not a long slip-n-slide ride gone bad. This is that day that we see those in need that are hurt from loosing foot, from trying to do things beyond their means, from pushing in directions that were not ment to go. Be ready to stop and listen to that the needs are then lend a hand and see them to the next care center. Then back on our way. This is just another day, we need to be grateful for all we have been given and take account of what we do with it. From doing our jobs to helping others, to bringing sunshine into the lives we come in contact with all day long to taking advantage of all the opportunities that are given us. As we get ready to tackle whatever comes our way may we go through it making us a most Happy, Happy, not just to hoard all for ourselves but to share with everyone what crosses our path today and everyday. Now let’s go do,

Cardinal Tuesday / 2-12-19

Cardinal Tuesday EveryOne
Well so glad to see that you survived the beginning of the week and that you are back again for another go-around. Tuesdays always seem to be my tough days to get through. Monday’s you are coming off a high from the weekends normally, Wednesday is,, well,, you know,, Thursdays, although are busy they are the day before Friday and well Friday is finish with a party day. But Tuesdays what good are they? Ok that’s the kind of attitudes we are trying to eliminate, and thoughts to chase away. Tuesday are just as full of adventures, journeys and opportunities as any other day and we need to stop looking at the negatives and start looking for all the positives that are ahead of us today. So let’s take that positive step and get those hikers on and take hold that staff and let’s start making our way to the pack. No I am not going to blow sunshine up your booty, by telling you it is going to be an easy day or that we will no encounter issues and problems But we will take them on and learn from them and we will make the best of whatever comes our way. So along the way we ill come on those who have lost hope, lost there way, lost the will, short of lost their lives. We will take the time to stop and listen, help in whatever way we can then see them to the next care center for the full help they need. Now we have a day to conquer, to take charge of and make it what we want to out of if. So let’s go make us a most Happy, Happy, all day long and spread some attitude fo gratitude wherever we go and in whatever we do.
