Thank you to all of you that visit my blog! This month is my blog’s 7 year anniversary! It started out that this was just something to do to fill up a lot of idle hours. I lost my left leg to Melanoma Cancer back in 2001. I continued to have to battle Melanoma until 2004 when at that time I was told I was Cancer Free! I beat some tough odds through some fine Doctors out of Pittsburgh (UPMC), a very fine Doctor here in neighboring Fairfield Ohio (That I’m sad to say lost his battle with cancer 2 years ago), and through the grace of God above!

 

 

 

So my life had really changed after all that and there was a time I was fighting boredom and depression. That’s when, while I was online, I seen that a cousin of mine had started an online blog. So I gave it try in 2010 and now its 2017, 7 years later and my blog keeps growing thanks to all of you! Now I look forward to looking and sharing new recipes, food news, and everyday life for me. I’m in a wheelchair,thus the name of my blog My Meals are on Wheels. At the time I’m writing this I now have 2,931 Followers, followers from around the World! That’s just so amazing to me. 2,931 new friends I would have had without my blog! So thank you again for all of you that follow my blog or for those that just drop by to read. Thanks, Mark (Ohio Cook)

Celebrate the Coming of Spring, Over-the-Rhine’s brewing heritage, and bock beer at the largest Bockfest in the Bockfest 25YearsUnited States. Join us on March 3-5, 2017 as we celebrate 25 years of the funkiest festival in Cincinnati!

There is something for everyone at Bockfest Hall (located at the Christian Moerlein Brewery at 1621 Moore Street, Cincinnati 45202)! Party Like a Bockstar on Friday night by watching the Parade, then enjoying live music, great food, and cold bock beer. Saturday morning kicks off with the Bockfest 5K, then you can sample Bocks, Bites, & Bygone Days with local and rare bock beer tappings, the Bockfeast dinners, a toast to WNKU, and unique heritage series and historic brewery tours. Saturday night kicks back into high gear with the Billygoat Ball with live music, more cold bock beer, and the Beard Baron and Sausage Queen competitions! On Sunday, we refresh ourselves with Bocks, Brunch, and Bavarians with a Bockfeast brunch, Bloody Mary bar, and Continental Sunday. Make sure to visit all the participating venues throughout the neighborhood with special offers all weekend long. The best part is Bockfest is FREE!

 

About Bockfest
Bockfest is first and foremost, a community event. In addition to throwing a great, three day long party, our goal is to celebrate and support our local community. We work to grow Bockfest every year, to increase attendance, to grow the parade, to add events, and to raise more money to spread the word. However, as enthusiastic as we are about growing the festival and sharing it with an increasingly wider range of America, we are unwavering in our commitment to keep Bockfest unique, authentic and local. There is no charge to the public to attend Bockfest and we work to include all types of local businesses because our goal is to promote Over-the-Rhine, its rich heritage, and the people who live and work here to as broad of an audience as we can reach.

Below are some of the delicious recipes you’ll find. So be sure to visit one of my favorite recipe sites, My Recipes (http://www.myrecipes.com/) Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

 

 

 

Best Slow-Cooker Soups and StewsMY RECIPES
Make a meal that feeds a crowd with these satisfying slow-cooker soup and stew recipes. These recipes feature the best flavor combinations that really meld together and fully evolve when cooked low and slow. The best part about these recipes is that once you prep, you’re done! Let the slow-cooker do the work and you’ll have dinner ready as soon as you get home in the evening. What could be simpler than that?

 

 

 

* Beef Marsala Stew
This is an ideal recipe for the slow cooker, where gentle, prolonged cooking turns tough beef into tender bites. Serve the stew over a mound of Fluffy Mashed Potatoes…..
* Slow Cooker Chicken, Bacon, and Potato Soup
This soup is perfect for ushering in fall: It’s hearty enough for the beginning of soup season, yet brothy and veggie-packed so that it doesn’t feel too heavy. Pair it with a slaw or kale side salad and crusty whole-grain bread for a light, satisfying dinner. This recipe is ideal for a weekend, when you can check on the slow cooker after just a few hours; though you won’t be able to leave the soup unattended all day, this still offers the benefit of hands-free, fuss-free cooking. Either baby red, Yukon Gold, or fingerling potatoes will work well here, as they’ll maintain their shape nicely during cooking…….
* Chicken and Cornbread Dumplings
Make a classic chicken and dumplings recipe even more Southern by topping the vegetable-and-chicken-packed stew with cornbread dumplings…..
* Slow-Cooker Recipe: Classic Beef Stew
Just like Mom used to make, our beef stew is packed with hearty chunks of meat and an array of vegetables. Be sure to have plenty of bread on hand to sop up the savory gravy…..

 

 

Noooooo!

Getting better….

I think I tried doing too much too soon yesterday. But I’m feeling okay today, just not doing a lot. Staying on a Soup diet for another day at least. A friend of mine and his family had the same thing and went to the Doctor. He said the only cure was to let it run it’s course and eat light for a few days. So hopefully the worst is over. Hope to have Dinner Posts back soon!

Feeling Better…

Sorry for the late posts and lack of today. I took care of Mom the past 2 days and it seems I’ve picked the Virus up now! About 9:00 I felt it coming on and I was sick to around 7:00 this morning. I rarely pick up anything like this but this one kicked my butt! Long time since I’ve been this sick to my stomach. But hopefully the worst is over and I’ll be feeling better later today or tomorrow. Back to bed for me!   Mark

Back up and running!

You can make these ahead of time and freeze them in resealable plastic bags, then add the sauce when heating them up. A quicker way to make these is to purchase a package of Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs or Jennie – O Turkey Meatballs and then when heating add your BBQ Sauce and Peach Preserve Sauce Mixture to them. Add Hot Sauce also to give them a little heat, optional. These make perfect appetizers for your upcoming Super Bowl Party or a treat for the family!

 

 

Cajun Meatballs

Ingredients
1 pound Lean Ground Turkey or Buffalo
1 1/2 teaspoons Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
2 tablespoons Cajun Seasoning
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Low Sodium Sauce
1 tablespoon Dried Parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped Onion
1/4 cup Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs
1/4 cup 2% Milk
1 Egg
1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
1/2 cup Smucker’s Sugar Free Peach Preserves

 
Directions
1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking sheet.
2 – In a large bowl, mix thoroughly the ground beef, hot pepper sauce, Cajun seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, onion, bread crumbs, milk, and egg.
3 – Form the mixture into golf ball sized meatballs and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until there is no pink left in the middle.
4 – In a small bowl, combine the barbeque sauce and peach preserves.
5 – When meatballs are done, place in a serving dish and cover with the barbeque sauce mixture. Toss to coat.
