Gratefulness

I am thankful for little things. The other day in a writing group, we were given the assignment of writing a list of 100 things to be grateful for. It took a bit of thought to come up with that many. But once I got to the upper 90’s, even more blessings popped into myContinue reading “Gratefulness”

Of life and holiday spirits

Cure for bad-tempered cats: Pull on welding gloves. Grab bad-tempered cat and stuff into a large garbage can with lid. Close lid tightly. Place on four wheeler and drive rapidly to farm 2-3 miles away. Dump cat out and drive rapidly away in the opposite direction. Take a completely different route home so bad-tempered catContinue reading “Of life and holiday spirits”

Chimichangas with Cheese Sauce

I don’t have any fancy name for these. They are what they are, and don’t need an amazing handle. The taste speaks for itself. And as a real winner, they are fairly easy to make! You will need: hamburger meat salt and pepper onion powder or minced onion garlic powder cumin taco seasoning shredded cheddarContinue reading “Chimichangas with Cheese Sauce”

Charcoal-Grilled Meat Globes

These luscious smoky meatballs/hamburgers are a relatively-quick meal, providing you start the grill first thing! Maybe even go mow another couple rounds of grass while you wait for the charcoal to burn down to a white-hot shade. (Thawed-out hamburger also proves helpful although the defrost button on the microwave works in a pinch.) Learning howContinue reading “Charcoal-Grilled Meat Globes”

Three-Cheese Potatoes

The first time I tried these potatoes, I also conducted my first attempt at grilling chicken. Let’s just say that I did not have beginners luck of any sort. But Ross manfully choked down the dry, tough chicken and seems none the worst for it. But the potatoes…we will definitely focus on this part ofContinue reading “Three-Cheese Potatoes”

So here’s a list of quick and easy meals I’ve been turning to! These have been a few of our lunchesContinue reading “Quick Easy Meals”

Thoughts on Life, Spring, Food, and Miracles

…and getting locked in bathroom stalls at truck stops. Most times I think it’s great when the doors go clear down to the floor. Gives a person more of a feeling of privacy. But when you get locked inside one and the space down at the bottom is real small, you start rethinking. Thankfully afterContinue reading “Thoughts on Life, Spring, Food, and Miracles”

Quite the Week

It’s been quite a week or two. The days seem to run together and it’s hard to know when one week is starting and the other ending. There was the day I unknowingly dumped my dad-in-law’s one and only working grease gun into the trash pit along with the rest of the trash out ofContinue reading “Quite the Week”

What’s Your Tuesday Like?

What’s Your Tuesday Like?In my life there seem to be no normalities. One cannot plan in advance beyond the next day (if even that far) as all things in my world are subject to change. In fact if I want to plan on something, I can plan on changing my plans. With that being said,Continue reading “What’s Your Tuesday Like?”

Get To Know Me And Mine

Meet Buster. He entered our life a few months ago and wiggled and licked his way right into my heart. He is good at terrorizing the felines around the place, barking at strangers, digging deep holes in flower beds, and melting hearts with his endearing eyes. Oh and also, he is excellent at cuddling andContinue reading “Get To Know Me And Mine”
