It’s mid-September and we are transitioning into an absolutely gorgeous time of the year here at the lake. Temperatures are comfortably maxing out to the mid 70’s during the day and cooling down to the mid 50’s at night with very low humidity. It’s not quite feeling completely like fall but you can feel a subtle transition towards the season.

dsc_2997_easyhdr-natural

 

On the way to work this morning, I noticed the lake was free of any activity, be it boating or water sports. The winds, like most days this time of year, were very calm and the aura the lake gave off was both peaceful and soothing. It’s amazing how this affects everyone who lives and visits at the lake.  Everyone I’ve run into today has been all smiles with a common discussion about the beautiful weather we are so fortunate to enjoy.  I have mentioned this in the past many times, but if you can get here this time of year with your family you will experience a different and special personality of Deep Creek Lake. Maybe you need to unwind with your loved one and have a romantic get-away. This is the time of year where your focus can be crisp and clear like the weather surrounding you.

Book a long weekend here at the lake and let Betsy Holcomb show you homes within your criteria. Start planting the seed now for your home here at the lake so you can enjoy these special surges in the season.

Sweet Banana Pepper Mustard Recipe

Sweet Banana Pepper Mustard Recipe
Sweet & tangy with a hint of spice
Sweet Banana Pepper Mustard Recipe
“Three food processors” full of sweet banana peppers.

Sweet Banana Pepper Mustard Recipe. It is that time of the season! Canning, canning and more canning! While over at a friend’s house a few weeks back and tried an amazing sweet banana pepper mustard. I literally could not put it down. The next day I immediately went out and bought a fresh peck of peppers and got to work. Recipes online are all similar for the most part with one major fault in my opinion…too much sugar!!! Most recipes call for 6 cups of sugar which is far too sweet for me. Here’s what I suggest as a base recipe. You can’t go wrong.

 

Combine…

1 QT of yellow mustard

1 QT of cider vinegar

2 cups of sugar

2-4 Tbsp of honey

1 Tsp salt

1 cup flour

1 1/4 cup of water

36 large, 40 medium or 50 small banana peppers

Optional- 2-4 hot banana peppers

 

Directions…

  1. Seed and chop peppers
  2. Mix everything together
  3. Warm to a boil stirring constantly so you don’t burn the mustard.
  4. Ladle into hot sterilized jars. Cap with sterilized hot lids and snug rings and process 10 to 15 minutes in water bath.

 

Fall in love with this delicious snack! Eat it with pretzels, hot dogs, sandwiches, glazes on hams or whatever else floats your boat! Try adding your own flair to each batch if you like. I tried fresh ginger on my last batch and it was a hit with the family!

Substitute hot peppers if you like.

Boyhood wonder and excitement…

 

Thank you Firefighters, EMS and State and Local Police
Our professionals taking great care of our people.

 

 

Thank you Firefighters, EMS and State and Local Police-Deep Creek Lake! I just want to take some time to give a sincere and well deserved thank you to our Rescue Squad, Firefighters and State/Local Police. It takes special people to work hard in not only securing our safety, but also helping us when our families lives are on the line.

A couple of weeks back there was a bad accident on the Glendale Bridge and I came upon the crews handling it while at Arrowhead Market. The firefighters, emergency medical technicians and state police handled the situation seamlessly. The professional chemistry that these men and women showed when performing their jobs gave me a sense of safety and security for my young family.

Yesterday up in our Sandy Shores neighborhood my two young boys heard the roar of fire truck sirens heading our way. As you can imagine, there is nothing more exciting than young boys hearing and seeing firetrucks. Our home is filled with every type of rescue toy known to man.  Two trucks and one ambulance passed us on their way to a call. Both of  my sons sat in the front yard waiting and listening to the sounds down the street from us. It wasn’t too long before we heard the mighty diesels roaring slowly back up the hill.  My oldest went up the driveway to wave at the firefighter and was so happy and excited to get a honk from these kind folks. It made the world to him and that’s all he talked about for the rest of the day.

I am happy to see this positive interaction with the young children in our county. I believe in teaching my family respect for these honorable folks and show them the value of their actions. I feel fortunate to live in a town that has such a strong pillar of police and safety crews truly protecting and serving the good people of Deep Creek Lake.

 

Thank you Firefighters, EMS and State and Local Police Thank you Firefighters, EMS and State and Local Police Thank you Firefighters, EMS and State and Local Police

Springtime Weather Update Deep Creek Lake May 19, 2016. As the abundant and looming Springtime rain gives us a reprieve from its fury we start to understand again why Deep Creek Lake is such a special place to so many. On my commute to work this morning it was refreshing to see Blue Skies above me as the fog burned off the lake. You notice instantly all the springtime flowers that have been blanketed by rain over the last few weeks flexing their colors and reaching for the sky. The birds have come alive and are vibrant in their springtime splendor with the warm temperature returning like a welcomed friend.
