Eggs and Bacon Recipe Cards

Yay! Blogger is out of read-only mode. I've been trying to log in all day to post these.

3x5 inch recipe cards- print 4 to a page. Quarter ruled. 300 dpi, click on the image for the full sized version.

4x6 inch recipe cards, 2 to a page, 300 dpi, click on the image for the full sized version. Also quarter ruled.

8x10 page, unlined, good for recipe scrapbook pages, or if you prefer to keep a recipe looseleaf binder. 300 dpi.

The last few days have been *gorgeous*, so I've been outside working in my garden and reading. Yesterday I read a homesteading book that I'll review tomorrow. It's excellent. 
Today, looking at the "weeds" which have overtaken part of my yard, my son decided that a dandelion green salad was just the thing. He picked and rinsed a big bowl of tender leaves, and served them with a vinaigrette. I pointed out where the fireweed was coming in, and said "You can make something that tastes very like honey using that and clover flowers." My mom used to make it. He thought that was interesting. He loves honey. Then it occurred to me that Mom's old "Homesteader's Honey" recipe could probably be made in smaller batches using raw sugar for a decent honey substitute for vegans. So when the flowers bloom, I'm going to try that.  I'll also need to try it with other kinds of flowers. Not everyone is lucky enough to be living in an area with rampant fireweed.
I hope you're enjoying your summer as much as I'm enjoying it here. After all the rain last year, I'm determined to enjoy the weather while it lasts, and if it holds, I'll enjoy it all summer long. 


  1. No kidding? Well who would've thunk it! We have a local winery that makes dandelion wine from the fresh opened dandelion blooms. I'll be looking for homesteader honey.

  2. When I was a kid, one of my favorite treats was deep fried dandelions. You pick the blooms when they are open and big, and pick off any stem on the bottom. Dip them in tempura batter and deep fry them. Serve with a little salt or a dipping sauce. They are so good.
