STUFFED SWEET POTATOES

“It’s not plagiarism in the digital age, it’s repurposing.”  Kenneth Goldsmith I’m going to be honest right from the start and admit that I got this recipe from a blog called, dontgobaconmyheart.    Now who couldn’t love that blog name! However, this blogger topped his version of stuffed sweet potatoes (yes, it’s a blog by…

BACKJOY

“It’s bad news when you get to the age where your back goes out more than you do.” A few months ago I went to a shoe store to (are you ready?) buy a pair of shoes!  I did.  I was also introduced to these plastic things that they had scattered throughout the store on…

LAMB LOIN

“A year from now you may wish you had started today.”  Karen Lamb A dear person gifted me with two beautiful lamb loins.  I had never bought nor prepared lamb loin.  Would that stop me? I found a recipe that suggested using Herbes de Provence when preparing lamb.  Did I know what that was? Did…

GLOBAL WHATING

“Weather forecast for tonight.  Dark.” Here in the midwest we’ve just gone through a period of unseasonably warm weather.  Mid February and this showed up in my back yard.  We’ve obviously sent our snow to the east coast and the rain to the west.

MOVING A LITTER BOX

“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.” John Muir Well isn’t that a good quote to use with a discussion of a litter box.  I’m taking a break from a recipe today so you can refrain from cooking and sit back and eat up some of…

ZUCCHINI GRATIN

“Don’t feel like you have to follow someone else’s recipe.”  Ingrid Nilsen Time for a side dish.  In my world that would not be a vegetable that is simply boiled and buttered, unless I’m living with a lack of enthusiasm.  Roasted is OK, and often my preference when I don’t have time to fuss.  But…

GENTLY CURRIED CHICKEN

“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life.”  Gabril I had to bring a very positive attitude to this recipe.  You see, my husband claims he doesn’t like curry.  I seldom make curry dishes.  However, with all the shouting and stomping about…
