Many of us who live and work in the country take note of when mesquites leaf out in the spring. For most people, this is just a casual observation of life around us and a promise that warm weather is around the corner.

If you are interested in killing mesquite with an herbicide, “bud break” on mesquites is a significant event and signals the beginning of your planning for a successful control.
Mesquites go through a fairly predictable life cycle every year. This, of course, changes somewhat with location, weather patterns, soils, and other factors, but the overall process is very similar wherever you find mesquite.

It was one of those necessary, yet very sad days in the life of a cattle rancher. We had to say goodbye to our bull, Frankie. We returned from the agonizing drive, and I felt compelled to sit down and ponder how to write an ode to a very good bull.

I have read all the rationale on when it is time to retire a bull. The average age for many ranchers is around eight years. Our Frankie was beyond his prime. We probably knew last year it was about time for him to retire. His lack of enthusiasm when he returned to the herd after his spring hiatus was a clue.

The very slow start to our spring calving this year, and cows that never conceived confirmed what we did not want to admit last year. It was time. Frankie was a handsome and gentle giant. A Charolais mix, but he could be fierce if he felt threatened.

Ingredients:
1 lb. ground beef
1 package of taco seasoning or 2-3 Tbsp
homemade taco seasoning
2/3 cup water
16 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
8 oz. sharp cheddar, shredded
4 oz. can diced green chilies, undrained
4 large eggs, separated
2/3 cup heavy cream or evaporated milk
1 Tbsp flour
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
1 Roma tomato, sliced thinly

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly coat a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat, then brown the ground beef. Drain.
Add the taco seasoning to the ground beef and 2/3 cup water. Stir well and let sauce thicken.
Transfer the ground beef to the prepared baking dish, spreading it into an even layer. Sprinkle the diced green chilies over the ground beef layer. Combine the shredded cheeses and sprinkle them over the ground beef and chilies. Set aside.
Separate the egg whites from the yolks, placing the egg whites in a medium-sized bowl, and the yolks into a separate medium-sized bowl. Add the heavy cream, flour, salt and cayenne pepper to the yolks. Whisk to combine.
