7/30 Euchre ... Tuesday Tip

I thought it would be FUN to have Tuesday Tips to share some interesting Euchre tips ... of course on Tuesdays!


Lead Trump When Your Partner Orders - 



Euchre Tournament 
If your partner makes the call and you have the lead, drop your highest trump on the table. This will help to draw the opponent's trump or force out a key high trump. Do NOT try to cash a side-suit Ace, as it may get trumped.

Oriental Cole Slaw Recipe


I originally got this recipe from my sister-in-law as it is one of our family favorites for holidays.  When she makes it, she cooks the Ramen noodles, but I prefer them crunchy. For some nice color or when having company for dinner, I like to add some red cabbage. The rice vinegar makes for a very light and tasty dressing and it has less sugar than some other similar recipes. Since it is so VERY easy to make, we enjoy it regularly ... I hope you do too!!


Oriental Cole Slaw
14 oz bag of shredded Cole Slaw
5 oz of shredded red cabbage (optional)
3 green onions diced
1 pkg chicken Ramen noodles (crush noodles)
1/3 cup sliced almonds or sunflower seeds

Dressing
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
2 tsp sugar
seasoning packet from Ramen noddles

Mix cole slaw with onions. Make dressing.
Right before serving, top with noodles and almonds or sunflower seeds and add dressing.


July Euchre Party Theme

Euchre Party
Here in the US, July 4 is our Independence Day and a reason to celebrate! I know our Canadian neighbors celebrate their Canada Day on July 1. So we can both share this party theme for July!

For this holiday, picnics are common with all the trimmings! This can be a fun Euchre party theme idea. Some possibilities are hot dogs, hamburgers, brats or ribs on the grill. Of course watermelon, baked beans and cole slaw are some of our favorites to include.

We have a great BBQ restaurant near us that sells already smoked meats such as grilled chicken, pulled pork and beef brisket by the pound. For my daytime Euchre group this is an easy way to have our July Euchre potluck. I order the main course of BBQ meats and everyone brings a dish to pass.  

Are there any traditions that you have to celebrate our July holidays that would fit well with a Euchre party?  Comment below and share them with us.

Don't Trump Your Partner's Ace - 


Euchre Tournament  

Why would you want to steal his or her trick? Make a discard of a side-suit loser. There are some rare exceptions: If you are forced to trump, you have no choice or you may want to take the lead.
