Pardon me while I...

tell you about...
ok, BRAG about the dinner I made tonight.

First, a bit of back ground. I had homemade refried beans, left over roast and some cheese I needed to use up. I wasn't really hungry, therefore nothing sounded good. It's Monday.

So as I sat waiting for my last munchkin to be picked up I was trying desperately to figure out what to do for dinner before Big G arrived and uttered the phrase we that is worse than nails on chalk board for me.... We'd already had left over roast, soft tacos with it and no one wanted quesadillas. Somehow my brain came up with a casserole. Before I tell you about it I need you to just be proud of me. I don't care it you've made something like it before that was much better, more creative, healthier and ecofriendly. This was big for me.

Here goes:
Spray whatever size oven pan you're going to use with non stick spray.
Spread thick layer of refried beans in bottom
Next scatter a layer of your chosen already cooked meat.
Drizzle a thin layer of salsa
Top with lots of cheese.
Heat until cheese melts.
For those of you who only have a few crumbs left in the bottom of the corn chip bag...
sprinkle those on top.
Otherwise I'd have served it with them to be eaten like a dip
One son chose to put the hot, gooey, yumminess in a tortilla and eat it that way.
The rest of us used spoons.

Now if your Big G you'll be deeply offended at the corn chip on top.
and repeatedly announce chicken would have been a better meat choice.
 (I've learned to just nod and think he missed his calling as a restaurant critic)

Sorry, no pictures...I had no idea it would be worth "sharing"

I need a baby...

so I can have a reason for my sister to make me one of these adorable hats...

I guess it would also help if we lived somewhere it got really cold for
more than...a minute. 

To see more hats go here.
To see more of this adorable baby boy go here
I've very blessed to be the sister of these two talented
and very beautiful (inside and out) women.

To clarify...I don't really want a baby of our own,
been there, done with that!

Just what I needed...

I was blog jogging this morning and came upon this Words to live by
It was just what I needed to "hear".

Gotta love Google and Green

-1=14+15=i think my boys are crazy...

Let me preface this by saying: "My boys are rockin' the egg business. So much so I had to BUY, yes, buy eggs at the store. See, we've reached a point were demand it about to our pace our supply. We started last June with 25 chickens. As of Friday we were down to 15. We're not doing so great on the keepin' them on earth business.


We arrived home from a day in Atlanta and found that one of our chickens had died.

That means we're now down to =14

So Gar called a local feed store and found two weeks old Rhode Island Reds for sale. The boys paid for part of them and we covered the rest.

That means we are now the proud caretakers of 29 chickens. We'll see how long it takes for us to share some with heaven, again.
