Celery Root Carrot and Apple Slaw

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I can now say that the end is in sight! We are set to close on the house on the peninsula by the end of February. While this road has been long and a bit twisted with disappointments, we have found the perfect home for retirement!

The only thing left to do besides the actual physical move, is to get back to cooking.....

I am starting with this salad because it is delicious, and more vegetables at the table is always a good thing. I have become interested in eating more salads, especially non-lettuce salads. I also like a slaw type salad, but currently, I do not eat uncooked cabbage. This wonderful salad is the answer to both. Terry and I made this salad together, our cooking together is always a fun time.


Celery Root Carrot and Apple Slaw
adapted from: simply recipes
serves 4-6

1 medium celery root (the size of a BIG grapefruit)
1 large apple - peeled if desired, we do not peel
2-3 carrots - peeled

1/2 c mayonnaise
1 T real maple syrup
1 T dijon mustard
1 T fresh lemon juice
OR
1 T Quick-Pickled Onion Vinegar
2 T fresh chopped parsley - if available - make with and without parsley, it is always delicious!



Peel and shred celery root, apple, and carrots.


Combine dressing ingredients, whisking until smooth. Fold everything together.

Let sit while putting dinner on the table, and enjoy!

Update, I took the leftover slaw for my lunch with some crumbled feta over the top. Salty feta is delicious with the lightly sweet flavor and mild crunch of the vegetables. I will definitely make this again!

The top 5 of all time, in 2015

We are running a bit late in posting around here, with house selling and house buying. Here a couple of days ago, I finally got around to cooking our Christmas ham.....

But today we received word that our final offer to purchase, has in fact been accepted! 

So I thought I would take a moment to share the top 5 (of all time) in 2015. And away we go.....


Number 1, Homemade Laundry Soap, a powder. I have used this for years. Here recently I had purchased (I know, sorry) a similar product over the counter, but when my stock of this is done, will return to my homemade powder. Our new home is serviced by a septic system and this soap will be perfect for our needs, once again.


Number 2, Pineapple Raisin Sauce for Ham. I love this stuff, and it has a great memory attached to it, which just makes it taste that much better.


Number 3, Joe's Special. Everyone needs a quick, delicious dinner. And this one is just that, and apparently I am not the only one that thinks so.


Number 4, One Pan Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes. Another recipe that I hold dear. This is how my mother cooked. Now that I have one of the new 9X13 slow cookers, I can't wait to make this dish again.

and last but not least,


Number 5, Our Favorite Corn Bread. I could eat this everyday. It is slightly sweet and is wonderful grilled with a bit of butter the next day (try a little real maple syrup over the top too!).

I wonder what the top 5 will be in 2016, looking back is always interesting.

Our progress or lack of, so far.......

UPDATE:  01/18/2016 our final offer has been accepted, it is off to the bank we go!

It is raining to beat the band! We have received copious amounts of rain this year, and the end is not in sight. With all the work of looking, deciding upon and then waiting on the inspection, I finally cooked our Christmas ham last night.

Today I placed all the scraps into a pan, sauteed them with a bit of olive oil, about a tablespoon of thyme and some black pepper. When the juices had evaporated, I added some cooked beans in the freezer and a bit of water and now that is simmering on the stove. They will be very tasty tonight with some bread and butter and fruit.

At the moment we are waiting for our final offer to be accepted, we must hear back today, or we start again. I really enjoy this home we have chosen, but honestly it is about retiring at the coast and not a particular house. We will make any house we buy, into our home.

Keep your fingers crossed that we reach a final decision soon, on a home at the coast.

Yes it is true, we have made an offer to purchase!

Shared from such a busy backyard,

We have made an offer to purchase!

And our offer has been accepted.....

We have been so busy with the tree falling down, moving our belongings into storage and looking for our new home, there has not been much time for anything else. I hope that is about to change!

This home and property backs to a green way full of birds and squirrels and deer. You can hear the ocean when you step outside, and by car the Klipsan beach approach is maybe 3 minutes. We could easily walk in 20 or bike ride in 5. The backyard will be busy with raised beds for vegetables and berries, and retirement looks better all the time!

Keep your fingers crossed for the inspection, appraisal and all the other ins and outs of buying a home to go smoothly. Also.....

Thanks for continuing to visit, we do appreciate it. Soon we will have a new busy backyard.

This and that from far and wide, January 2016

Hello, we hope your week is going great on this first day in January. Take a look at what friends and other blogger are cooking up currently or have enjoyed in the past. So much information and recipes from current and older posts on just about every blog, today I am sharing these.....

Whole grain breads and rolls are on our list as preferred foods, these are on the must try list. I have enjoyed whole grain baking more with freshly milled flours. These are perfect to round out any meal, even breakfast when presented with butter and a selection of jams.

Blondies are a favorite bar cookie, since they are easy and delicious. I plan on trying these with walnuts in place of the chocolate chips. I love chocolate, but there is something about the brown sugar and walnut combination that calls out to me.

Salt and sesame seeds have been natural flavor partners for many years. I have purchased Gomashio seasoning salt and enjoyed a homemade version in past years. It is wonderful on vegetables and brown rice.

Pulled Ham was a new dish for me, but coming from a wonderful cook, one to try. This is perfect for large gatherings as well as, ease of serving. Ham Sliders on homemade rolls is a perfect way enjoy this.

One of the original convenience foods! Cooks from years ago, had some great ideas.....
