Henderson County Now

I was so excited that I got the chance to sit this week and chat very briefly with my own “little superstars” called the Athens Hornets baseball team and Head Coach Dallas Robertson.

As you all may know already, they are on the road to the regional quarterfinals. Up next is an opponent that happens to be the defending state champions: Pleasant Grove. After coming off an exciting comeback Saturday afternoon in game 3, Athens sent home the Crandall Pirates in a 13-10 area round series win.

The team will be playing at Northeast Texas Community College in Mount Pleasant Friday at 7 p.m. Game 2 is at 1 p.m. on Saturday and Game 3 is 30 minutes after if needed.

I call them my “lil superstars” simply because they are so young, but they are also so talented as they have shown Continue reading “Kendall Sanders visits Athens Hornets on eve of Regional series”

First of all, before I start hounding you about lambsquarters for the third week in a row, I have to tell you that my gorgeous and brilliant granddaughter, Ariel Humble, just graduated from TCU! We are very proud of her. Yayyy Ariel!

Now, back to lambsquarters: I want to be honest with you and tell you that the reason I am still on this kick is because I couldn’t think of anything else to write about. But I promise you, this is good information.

What to do with lambsquarters

First pick you some. I am more than eager to share mine with you. Take it home, discard any tough stems, wash it. Put it in a pan with some water. You don’t really have to cover it with water, because it will cook way down. Simmer till it is tender, which won’t take long, then drain it and set aside. Chop you a bunch of onion, start sauteing it in some olive oil or coconut oil or butter, then throw the lambs quarter in there and saute it, too. Salt it and maybe add a little vinegar. Eat it with some beans and cornbread and onions. Yum yum.

Now, if you are lucky enough to have some left over, this is when it gets even better. Warm it in your microwave. With a spatula or back Continue reading “Around Malakoff: Great recipes for lambsquarters”
