Sweet Saturday 


Miss Bella and I are enjoying a beautiful Saturday morning on the patio. The sky is overcast, the temperature is a comfortable 66 degrees and doves are cooing and various birds chirping all around. So peaceful. My coffee even tastes better. A wonderful way to ease into my day. After coffee, I think I’ll go for a morning swim and then I plan on QUILTING! With my longarm! I haven’t had a quilt on since I finished my 2nd grandson’s quilt awhile back. Also, since then we moved to a new house and that involved taking down my machine and setting it back up. This will be the first quilting since the move in January. I picked up a couple QOV’s at our last guild meeting and need to get them done and back to guild for binding and labeling. Our next presentation is in October. I’m excited to participate in such a worthy project. Wish me luck it’s smooth sailing!

A Friday Food Post


IMG_4175It’s been a minute, ok maybe a little longer than that, since I’ve paid my poor little blog any attention. Life has been overwhelmingly busy. Lots and lots of changes going on. I still intend to write a post about my father and our journey with Alzheimer’s disease. Father’s Day was pretty rough this year. But tonight, I’m just going to dip my toes back in with a simple post about food.

My own Tex-Mex-ish version of picadillo. This will be really yummy with a warm tortilla wrapped around it. I cook some hamburger and chopped potato together, seasoned with some salt, pepper and garlic. Tonight I had some yukon gold potatoes on hand, so I used those. Then I add some Rotel, and lots of chopped green chiles, and simmer it all together til the potatoes are cooked through. Heat the tortillas on the comal, and fill them up. Quite tasty.
