Food from my garden, this week in fail

With oodles and oodles of squash and zucchini from my garden, we’ve tried a few “new to us” recipes lately. Some were good, some were not. This one, from Paula Deen, was not a winner. The flavors did not work well together, no one wanted a second helping, and we tossed the remainder. I made …

Garden Gab, Loss

My 1st tomato child (first tomato plant I planted) is dying. This year is the 1st year since I began gardening, 3 years ago, that my tomato plants have been fruitful. Tomatoes are hard for me for some reason. 😦 The leaves began to take on a golden hue. I went to my favorite garden …

I hope you all had a fun filled Memorial Day. I thought I’d give you a peek into how my family spent Memorial Day. My Mother was returning from a dog show in Oklahoma. She made it to just outside of the DFW area and then this happened. No one was hurt. The RV was …

Waiting…..

It’s after Midnight. My house is quiet, except for the noise from the T.V. I’m watching Watchmen, yes… I’m that sort of girl. Everyone else is asleep, I should be too. I know I should be, but sleep is always harder to catch when your mind is racing, at least for me it is. My …

The Tale of Two Salads, this week in FAIL

I am working on adding more greens and whole grains to my families diet.   Not that we don’t love nachos, chicken fried steak and creamy, dreamy gravy….because we do. It’s more about making wise choices about the food I feed my family. I made two salads recently with two very different results. The first salad …

Pumpkin Chips? This week in Fail……

Yes, I said pumpkin chips. Crisp and chewy….strange And I said FAIL. I’m down to two pumpkins left.  Can you believe it?  I decided to try something different with this pumpkin. After an evening of dinner failure, that resulted in a dinner out.  Okay, that deserves more of an explanation.  I planned to make a …

Today, I’ve got nothing….

Do you have blah days?  Total blank brain days?  Days where hot chocolate and a good (insert low impact activity here)  is all you desire? Days where being funny and creative for a blog post Just. Isn’t. Happening. Hello.  🙂  Me too.     Yep.  That’s me.  I’m feeling lazy today. It feels a bit …
