Flag Day, June 14, Indian River Life Saving Station, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware, Sussex County

100_4281

Miles of beach, up and down the Delaware Coast, the surfmen were the keepers of our shores.  They patrolled the desolate and dangerous beaches, looking for shipwrecks and warning vessels of the imminent dangers along the coastline.

100_4269

The years were 1876 – 1915.

100_4273

The Indian River Life Saving Station is located south of Dewey Beach, Delaware, and a mile north of the Indian River Inlet.

100_4245

Built in 1876, it is the only station in Delaware still standing in its original location.

100_4252

The U.S. Flag flew over the station and this particular flag has 38 stars and was the official Flag of the U.S. from 1877 – 1890.

100_4265

Today is Flag Day, dedicated to celebrating the adoption of the American Flag by the Second Continental Congress in 1777.

It is believed Flag Day originated in 1885.  More info.?  Please visit http://www.usflag.org/flag.day.html.

The Indian River Lifesaving Station has many fun and educational programs throughout the year.  When visiting us, here, in Southern Delaware, it is definitely a must stop.  More info?  Please visit http://www.destateparks.org.

Have a great day!!

Recipes Begged, Borrowed, or, Stolen, Roasted Butternut Squash with Corn, Red Onions & Cranberries, Rehoboth Beach Eats, Meatless Any Day! Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

The gates are beginning to open…..Summer 2015 officially opens next week.  Yikes….a new way of trying to figure out when to go here or there.  Welcome to the Delaware Beaches!!

“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure.  In cooking, you’ve got to have a what-the-hell-attitude.”   julia child

Even though my recipes can, at any time, be begged, borrowed, or stolen….this recipe was given to me as a gift by my friend, Jody.  It is totally delish and you can serve it by itself for any meatless day; with a salad for a complete veggie meal.  Or, just let it sit by the side of beef, chicken or fish.

The main ingredient is a butternut squash.  This fruit/vegetable is full of Vitamin C, A, & E.  It is also a good source of manganese, magnesium and potassium.

dscn4937

Butternut squash can be roasted, toasted, pureed for soups, or mashed and used in casseroles, breads and muffins.

2 new sauces for this recipe, and they are easily found at Peppers on 176 Coastal Hwy. #1 in Lewes, Delaware.  The Garlic Pepper Sauce made out of aged red peppers and garlic and the Peri Peri Pepper Sauce which is a blend of Moroccan flavors.

dscn4941

ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH CORN, RED ONIONS & CRANBERRIES

1 2 lb. butternut squash, peeled with a veggie peeler

1 large red onion, chopped into bite size pieces, not diced

4 Tbsps. Olive Oil

2 Tsps. Garlic Pepper Sauce (Mountain Man)  Taste it and add more….I did.

2 Tsps. Peri Peri Pepper Sauce (Warrior’s Potion)  Taste it and add more…I did.

1 Tsp. Sea or Pink Himalayan Salt

1.5 Cups Frozen Corn or steamer bag of “honey roasted corn”

1/8 Tsp. Cayenne Pepper

1/2 cup dried cranberries

3/4 cup chopped cilantro

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Chop the peeled butternut squash into circular disc pieces then cut in cubes from the discs.  Lightly toss the pieces in olive oil or in coconut oil and a bit of salt.  The smaller the pieces are, the faster they will roast in the oven.

dscn4938

Put on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.  Bake in batches for about 10 minutes.  You want them tender but not mushy.

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and saute onion.  Add corn, hot sauces, salt, and cayenne to the onions and stir for a minute or so.  Then add cranberries.

dscn4943

Add the roasted squash cubes to the mixture and stir for a few minutes to allow the flavors to blend.  Then add the chopped cilantro.

dscn4945

This recipe has a very good combination of flavors….a little heat, the sweetness of cranberries, and cilantro.  As usual, make it your own.

Enjoy.  Talk to you later.

Meatless Monday!! Black Bean Burgers, Easy, Tasty, Rehoboth Beach Eats, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware, Recipes Begged, Borrow & Stolen

I don’t even know when I decided to put recipes for Meatless Monday.  Some Mondays I do not follow this global movement.  But others, like tonight, made me want to construct a Bean Burger….The recipe is stolen, adding my own twist.

Meatless Monday started in 2003, launched in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.  It has been catching on.  The movement is active in about 36 countries.  Every nation brings its uniqueness…culture, customs, and cuisine to the table in meat free dishes.  To learn more, please visit http://www.meatlessmonday.com.

Monday is the chosen day because we see it as the beginning of the week.  I get it, I get it….I always start my diets on Monday.  It is a fresh start.  Yeah, and at times is downhill from Monday on.

This recipe is so easy.  A little bit of this and a little bit of that.  I am sure you can make it your own, as well.

A BLACK BEAN BURGER FOR MEATLESS MONDAY

2 cans black beans, divided, rinsed and drained (I bought low sodium beans)

1 small chopped yellow onion

1/4 cup chopped parsley

1 minced garlic clove

2 teaspoons cumin

1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt (optional)

1 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons oil for frying pan (your preferred oil)

3/4 bag of frozen peas and carrots

1 cup panko (I bought Chipotle Panko)

2 eggs

Puree 1 can beans, onion, parsley, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper in a food processor until smooth.  Mine looks a little chunky because I do not own a food processor.  The blender was a pain, but I did it, somewhat.

dscn4478

To the burger mixture, add the other can of beans, the peas and carrots, the panko and the eggs.  Mix to combine.

dscn4479

Heat a skillet to medium heat.

In the meantime form the burger patties.

dscn4482

Place them in two batches in the skillet and cook until browned.  About 4 minutes on each side.

dscn4483

Serve on rolls….I chose this Pretzel Roll.  Add lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard and avocado.

dscn4489

Or serve on a salad if you are not eating carbs.

dscn4492

Enjoy!!

dscn3034

It was early New Year’s Eve in Rehoboth Beach.  The Boardwalk was quiet and it was 29 degrees…brrrr!!  Downtown Rehoboth Beach was so clean and ready for those revelers that would be celebrating the beginning of a New Year.

dscn3045

“Genuine success comes only to those who are ready for it.  So, never step back and always have courage to accept new challenges.”

dscn3000

I wish you a Very Happy New Year!!

dscn3003

My hope is that it brings to all of us peace and health.

Resolutions?  I always start the New Year with wanting to lose weight, be a better person, and a better friend.

dscn3038

I stayed home with my children.  I love Shrimp Creole based on Chef Paul Prudhomme’s recipe on New Year’s Eve.  I make it my own, though.  The step by step recipe can be found on AboutMyBeaches.  Just click on the month of January, 2013 and scroll down to the 29th.  It is an easy recipe that most can be made ahead of time.  Add a spinach salad and you really have a beautiful meal.

Michael decided that his strawberries were blog worthy.  Here they are!!
