Life is a gift... celebrate it

If you don’t fit… please don’t sit!!!

Big Boy in a Booth

You know my ass is getting OLD and cranky. While visiting a relative in the hospital… I ate a simple soup/salad lunch out today with mom and was comfortable in a booth I had PLENTY of room between my chest and the table. I don’t condone fat bashing as really I have no room but […]

Careful with medicine, alternative treatments, and pets.


I have a friend who rescues kitties who told me a very sad story about a poor little white kitten who needlessly died because of a popular alternative therapy treatment… a treatment that was 100% natural and organic.  Her owners tried to treat  fleas with tea tree oil.  While it is true that tea tree […]

Worst Experience Ever – Express Scripts


While at physical therapy today, my therapist asked me to describe exactly what my migraine headaches were like.  There really isn’t anything I can compare it to as the pain is not like anything I have ever experienced.  He offered to try a few things that might help the headache, but the were almost the […]

Thai Basil Chicken


Oh my… oh my… I just got my CSA box and there’s a fragrant bag of fresh basil in it.  Tonight I think I’m going to make some Thai Basil Chicken.  It’s often served in restaurants with chicken that has been ground like hamburger meat… I do prefer boneless, skinless chicken breasts. This one has […]

Fruit Pie Tacos from a muffin pan


Hopefully someday soon we will see some peaches or apples from our CSA.  This sounds like a winner of a recipe.  I’m sure it will delight your family.  I have baked things like this on our gas grill to avoid heating the oven… just watch your temp and check often… your mileage may vary. Have […]

Peacamole – A New Twist on Guacamole


I found this one in the New York Times and can’t wait to try it.  I’m nothing but traditional with some foods, but this actually seems like it would work.  I am hoping to find some avocados to try it out this weekend.  Peacamole adds the flavor of sweet peas to traditional guacamole.  It is […]

Sweet Potato Pancakes


Sweet Potato Pancakes are a savory southern comfort food.  They are not to be eaten with syrup… but savored with other veggies.  They are delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  The redder the sweet potato the better.

Far Too Long since I’ve Posted


I’ve had a heck of a first half of 2015… I’ve struggled with my headaches and other illnesses terribly, but I am surviving.  I am very limited as to how long I can spend on the computer… sadly I’m lucky to make it 1 hour a day in 15 minute segments.  I did get my […]

Dill Butter Squash Saute


To all of my CSA Friends, I hope you are enjoying all that squash you are getting.  Try this! This is a different angle on an old veggie. Even the kids will eat this one! If you’ve got fresh dill in your garden, substitute 2 to 3 fresh sprigs dill for the dried dill weed. […]

Why I have been so quiet…


My dear friends, Many of you guys have wondered why my blog has fell silent… and for the past three years I have not been able to speak of what has went on in my life due to a lawsuit.  My lawsuit has been settled and now I am trying to pick up the pieces […]
