My (IN)famous cooking skills

I remember many years back I had a friend who told me that she boiled the potatoes and eggs together when she made potato salad. OK, now you know that this is going to be a disaster, right? It involves two things that I am rather bad with. 1 - Cooking and 2 - memories. … Continue reading My (IN)famous cooking skills

If I sound stupid just make me count to ten!

I have been known to sleep walk. In the past. Lately however I have seen several videos of people sleepwalking or waking from surgery. My sleep walking was brought out again with the medication Ambien. I love the little commercial blurbs "May cause eating or drinking with no memories of the event" I had a … Continue reading If I sound stupid just make me count to ten!

NOT just a suggestion…

Maybe I can toss some of them. (right!!?). You sit and start with the pictures. The oooh's,  awww's … Continue reading Round and round the Mulberry bush…

Christmas Cheer?!?

Thinking that I would TRY to carry it on with the "Santa Clause" at the volunteer fire department in Kirk. I tried some divinity.... managed to put too … Continue reading Christmas Cheer?!?

Meager Today the "Daily Prompt" was meager. I looked deep into my soul and searched for a "meager"ness in my world. The only meager I can come up with is my cooking skills. With my meager cooking skills I will transform some plain egg whites, corn syrup and a little salt into marshmallow nirvana! (insert … Continue reading Meager…

As we (or at least me) come to an age when Mother’s are scarcer than hens teeth. Hen’s don’t have teeth you say?? Pretty scarce then aren’t they. I wonder how much of what we know is from the times that Moms tried to pass onto us knowledge and all they got for their attempt to … Continue reading Brown Sugar not just for baking anymore!
