Over The Moon party # 78

Welcome to Over The Moon Link Party. I am always so excited to have you join the party. Check out our features and then link up your posts. Hope you have a great week!


Yummy No Cook Side Dish

When the weather warms up, the last thing I want to do is heat up the kitchen. We are camping this Father's Day weekend and a number of friends are getting together for dinner. We all bring something and have great fellowship and fun.

When Given Bananas - Make Banana Bread

A friend of mine brought over a number of bananas from his tree. They were still green. I thought I would eat some but then they all started to ripe. Time to make some banana bread.

Ducks Find New Pond - My Driveway

If you follow me you know that we had major rain and flooding here in Davie, Florida last week. I showed you some pictures of my back yard here. The rain has stopped, the sun is shining and the water is going down slowly. 

I took some pictures of these ducks when my driveway was flooded. They thought my driveway was their pond as they swam around from my driveway onto the street.

I took the dogs on a golf cart ride yesterday and the birds were out in full force up at the other end of our street getting all of the bugs.

Eclectic Red Barn: Birds in the yard

Some were sitting up on the fence.

My neighbor put up this sign. (The sign is at the edge of his yard) He is so funny. You have to have some humor in all of this. Can you believe that this end of the street had more water than we did? (This is after 5 days since the storm)

Eclectic Red Barn: No Wake sign in yard

Some kids actually were in a kayaks on the street and the couple at the end raise koi fish and some of them got out and people had nets try to catch them.

This Great Egret was walking around my yard. I still have a lot of water.

He took off as I tried to get closer. You can see that the water is going down from my barn.

Each day I watch to see how much the water will go down today and hope it doesn't rain. My husband comes home on Sunday. I can't wait.  At least I don't have to cut grass while my husband is away. lol!

Over The Moon party #77

Welcome to Over The Moon Link Party. So glad to have you join us. Please share your posts and show a little love. 

Teriyaki Beef Skewers

The rain has mainly stopped although the water is still in my back yard and receding a little in the front. You may have seen my post on the flooding here in Davie, Florida. We were hit so hard we made national news. It will be sometime before this water is gone, especially since we are in the rainy season. 

I decided to grill out today (I wanted to be outdoors a little) and when I saw this recipe for Teriyaki Beef Skewers, I knew that I had to make them.


Eclectic Red Barn: Teriyaki Beef Skewers

I made a few changes to the original recipe, like adding some grated fresh ginger and mango/pineapple juice instead of just pineapple juice. 


Eclectic Red Barn: Teriyaki Beef Skewers

I marinated the beef for only 6 hours instead of the 24 it called for and they were still great. This would be great to do the night before so all you would have to do is grill them when you come home.

The recipe stated that the pineapple juice was optional, but I think it gave it added flavor, even though I used a mango/pineapple version.

Eclectic Red Barn: Teriyaki Beef Skewers

I love recipes that I can easily make changes to. Next time I am going to try chicken instead of beef.
