Garden Gab week 19 ~ Food for my family

I’ve been negative lately about the heat. I need to work on that. Gardening makes me happy. It provides food for my family and friends. It relieves stress, and it’s my “thing”. I’m 19 weeks in to gardening this season. 19 weeks seems like a lot, but in gardening it’s very little time. My carrots …

Cornbread Taco Pie

Making dinner from leftovers does not have to be hum-drum. I had cooked ground beef (left over from taco night) and corn (left over from another meal) what to do…what to do. Roast the corn, make a taco pie and cover it in yummy corn filled cornbread. Sounds like a perfect plan, and lucky you…you …

Cream of Mushroom soup~~Slow Cooker Style

So, I bought mushrooms when I was at the farmer’s market on Monday.  I was all caught up in the excitement of buying produce and I forgot 1 important thing.  I remembered that 1 very important thing once I got home. What was that thing? Um, I’m the only one in my house who eats …

Weeds in my Life Garden

I’m recycling today.  It’s good for the environment (right?) I’ve had a nasty headache for the last 36 hours, no break (except for sleep).  It SUCKS!
