Twasn’t a cooking week this week. It was a lot of leftovers and my husband’s chili. He is a pretty good cook as well, and no one can hold a candle to his chili, chicken cheese enchiladas, Spanish rice, or fideo’s. He made a big pot of his chili this past Sunday. Perfect for the… Continue reading Queen Egg Roll
The weather was just right on Saturday, and a little challenging on Sunday. My chore list for the weekend was to close out some yard work and the garden. It wasn’t a long list, just a list that could take a little while to accomplish. Before I could get to the closing out part, I… Continue reading Closing Out the Season
It started out slow. So slow in fact that no one took notice. The pace was as the tortoise goes. A right taken away here, a story buried deeply inside the newspaper, so insignificant as to not be of much notice. Then 9/11 happened and the pace quickened a little. More rights stripped of the… Continue reading Heil GOP
All of us are quite familiar with the number of ads that come across our social media feeds. The data collection is so well-honed, the programs think they know us better than we know ourselves at times.

Walking the dog at 9:00 at night with the sun still shining has long passed. Several of us think we are going to have an “early” winter, well early by today’s standards, and… Continue reading Passing of Another Summer
Yesterday during a conversation with a friend, we got to talking a little bit of politics. While talking, she said something that hit me hard for a couple of reasons. She said, paraphrasing, in talking to another woman the day before how odd it felt that they would go to bed with reproductive rights and… Continue reading Here Yesterday, Gone Today
Papa Joe is an excellent cook! I don’t think I’ve ever had anything he has made I didn’t like. He has been a great teacher as well. Some day I hope to feel as confident as he does in just grabbing some things and whipping it up into a treat of a meal. When we… Continue reading Lasagna Time
I have a major data analysis project due by Thursday. Trying to figure out best way to present the data, which takes lots of time. Wish me luck as I sort through the many data fields.
To get the ingredients for my birthday dessert (yes, we are celebrating a little later than usual due to a Gala Event we attended on my birthday), I had to make a grocery run this evening. In some ways as I walked around Kroger, it reminded me of the run on supplies during the height… Continue reading End Times?
We are having a strategic planning meeting tomorrow at work. At the last one there were some candies and mints for us. I have to admit I had hoped there would be a donut or muffin waiting for us. I know it was wishful thinking; I will say though I always try to have a… Continue reading Double Oven Kind of Evening
