Regrow scallions

14 May

Re-growing Scallions.

Fridas Peach

I tried regrowing scallions/spring onions a little while ago and it works 🙂



All you have to do is put the white part of the scallions in water (roots + a little ekstra should be covered), set aside in a sunny window and wait for about 10 days 🙂

  • The more ‘white’ you cut away when using the storebought scallions, the (little) longer it takes to regrow to a usefull length.
  • I’ve seen good results using soil instead of water, but haven’t tried it myself.
  • Refreshen water every  3rd day, wash away the slimy stuff on the roots and make sure that the scallions are ‘standing’ – don’t use too big a container.
    A mason jar, regular glass or small vase will do just fine 🙂

For my kids Birthday Party I decided to make Shish Kabob Grapes as one of the appetizers. There were only 4 left from this plate after the party was done that totaled eight kids. These were simple, sweet and easy to make and gave a great fun colorful presentation for my children’s birthday party.

Thai Beef Salad Recipe

29 Jan


Homemade by Kathleen Heady

This is an all time favorite. I grew up with this dish. My Mom had a friend  from Thailand and she owned her own Thai restaurant where we lived when I was little and we would go visit her and have this Thai beef Salad dish along with some other great Thai dishes to include Tom Yum and Tom Kha Gai soup. Since then, I learned how to make this dish and I have served this Thai Beef Salad up for friends and family members.  And Everyone who has had tried it, has loved it!

So, last night for dinner I decided to make this salad recipe of mine for my family and let me say it was all gone by lunch the next day between two grown adults and two children.  We all had seconds and of course we all packed the salad for lunch. It was beyond delicious.  The meat can also be cooked three different ways Grilled, Broiled or on the pan. Make sure to marinate the meat if you decide to Grill or Broil this dish with a little bit of Soy Sauce and minced garlic and then Stir Fry it for 5-10 minutes with all the ingredients below.  Either way it is cooked, I promise it will be delicious. Let me know if you make this dish! I’d love to hear from you.
