My daughter just e-mailed me from Biloxi- She scored free tickets for Jimmy Buffett's Gulf Concert.
Here's the press release-
Jimmy Announces Free Gulf Concert
To demonstrate support for the people, businesses and culture of the Gulf Coast, CMT will telecast a free musical celebration live from the beach at Gulf Shores, Ala. CMT Presents Jimmy Buffett & Friends Live from the Gulf Coast will air on CMT on Thursday, July 1, from 8-9:30 p.m. ET/PT. Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band will be joined in the concert by his friends Sonny Landreth, Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney, Jesse Winchester and Allen Toussaint. A special souvenir tee shirt will also be designed for the concert and sold online and at the show. More info coming soon!
Tix sold out in 10 mins. so she's pretty psyched, as I'd be too.
Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney and the Zac Brown Band for starters-ought to be a heck of a show.
Great in the winter months, must have sweltered in the summer.
Nice little camp stove, not much different than the ones Coleman sells today.
I'll make you guess on this one.
Christine Campeau, the Museum's School Program's Manager/Museum Educator did a fabulous job with the kids (and the adults). She puts in a ton of hours in prep and her energy and enthusiasm are second to none. Thank you very much Christine!
All in all it was a great day. The Adirondack Museum is a must see if you've never been there, and take it from this guy, who goes at least once a year, there's always something new.
And this year it's about food, cooking and dining, doesn't get any better than that!
They'll have a lot of related activities to this exhibit this summer, click on the above link for the schedule.
Park residents get in free until the end of June. Go for it!
My friend Karen gave me this recipe last year for baked beans- they're pretty darn good-may have something to do with the bacon!
Baked Beans Super Sized
From Sue Moeller, via Donna Sloan, sweetened up by Karen Greiner
The original recipe called for less brown sugar and ketchup.
It had to strong of a molasses flavor for me, so here's my rendition.
This makes a large quantity and can be cut in half.
1 lb. bacon, fried, reserve the grease, save for the top
1 large onion, sautéed in a bit of bacon grease
2 lb. ground beef, brown
2 cans kidney beans
2 cans butter beans Drain, wash, strain
2 cans garbonzo beans (chick)
2 cans pork n beans
1 can B & W baked beans keep the sauce
Mix in separate bowl create the sauce
2 TBS molasses
3/4 cup ketchup, (or a dash more to your taste)
3/4 cup brown sugar, (or a dash more to your taste)
? cup white sugar
After frying the bacon and keeping it for the top of the beans, take out all the grease. I used a non-stick pan so I only placed a couple of tablespoons back in the pan to sauté the onions. Once onions are translucent, brown the ground beef. Add the sauce to the meat and onions to coat.
Combine all beans and meat mixture together in the pan you are going to bake in.
Top with remaining bacon, I broke it into pieces so everyone could get some.
