Well....


Well.
"Now that's a deep subject", my good friend would say.
Today, is hot and most of the visitors around the lake have gone home. We still have a few and it's great to see and hear the children having fun.
I am a great believer that no matter what, kids will find fun. They have such great imaginations when undisturbed.
I have been using my inner child to create so much this summer. I am currently working on several theatre scripts at the same time. It's WONDERFUL!!
It's always fun trying to keep up with my own ideas:)
Anyway, I am on a bow kick now. I have made so many hair bows that I had to force myself to stop.
I also have a puzzle mini album I am creating and will put up in my Etsy shop soon.
My Etsy shop is doing better than I expected. There are several of you out there that enjoy my "Onesie" chipboard mini albums. I think I will make some "Onesie" card baby announcements. I actually saw some in Wal-mart yesterday and thought, I could make that a bit better. We'll see.
Well, back to my work and fun. I suppose I will go play in some oil, canola oil that is. I am going to try and make some fried potatoes. This dish has been very difficult for me to master. It's fairly simple. Actually it's SIMPLE. I just can't perfect it. It's either to greasy or too dark, or just not good. I want to make the perfect golden potato discs.
I am armed with a new 5lb bag of russet potatoes and a great cutting knife so here I go again. If I get this right I will....

Enjoy Life!

Happy 4th of July!!



Well, I am here at the lake and we are having a wonderful time celebrating the 4th of July!
The celebration really began Friday and continues today.
I have several wonderful neighbors here and one in particular is a great cook.
She shared this recipe with me and it turned out great! This speaks volumes for me because while I can read, the dish does not always come out the way it should.
Anyway, this dish came out great and I was tickled pink about it.
You simply combine all of the above ingredients in a big pot and let it cook. Let's see now, the ingredients include, chicken breast, in a can, Texas Pete Wing Sauce, cream cheese, and blue cheese dress dressing. It's easy peasy:)
Put everything in one pot. I start with the cream cheese and move on from there. Once everything is in the pot and is melted and hot, it's ready. There is one very important thing to remember. Do not add the liquid from the cans of chicken breast. If you do, your dish will be "runny". This is easy to resolve if it does happen to you. You can do one of two things or both if you prefer. You can let it cook longer, so the extra liquid cooks out or you can add more chicken breast meat so it won't be so runny
Have a wonderful 4th and....

Enjoy Life!

July


I can't believe it's July! Oh my, please don't let the summer go so fast.
Many of my friends are preparing for the Christmas Holidays. I know it makes sense but it just seems to rush things a bit much for me.
I am watching old Maude episodes. I really think they are funny. The writing is sooo good.
I am going to hop on over to the online game of Second Life. It's just something that make me....

Enjoy Life!
