Well, let me start this post off by saying my shoulder is so much better!!! I love my cortisone shots. I start rehab in a week. I am going to do everything possible to not have rotator cuff surgery. Thank you so much for the Facebook, texts, and email well wishes. It actually hurt to type last week.
Easter was wonderful in our home. It was also Eric’s birthday. I am sharing some of his Birthday/Easter meal with you today. He deserves only the best. I could have fed him corn dogs and potato chips and he would have been happy.
I can whip out cupcakes pretty quickly and with confidence that they will look pretty good. However, I am NOT a cake decorator. Cakes are a challenge for me. This cake was definitely a labor of love for my birthday boy.
I love pasta, it is my downfall for sure. I can never say no to a plate of pasta. My favorite pasta is penne. There is just something about those little tubes of carbs that make me do cartwheels! I have noticed lately that when I do a cartwheel I now see ‘stars’! I need to make a mental note to find another move to do when I get excited. Wait, I better write that down because I don’t remember my mental notes anymore. Wait, where is my pen??? Shoot, what I was I going to write down?! Help!!!!!!
This dish combines chicken, pasta, broccoli, red pepper, onion, garlic, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, and feta cheese. Yea, yea, you love me, I know.
Remember Dinner on the Ground that the country churches held on the last Sunday of the month? Boy, I do! Great food, fellowship and all you could eat! Well, Sir Streusel and I had our own little Dinner on the Ground this past weekend….by accident. I prepared a meal straight off of Betty Crocker’s website. It sounded so good, mouth watering delicious. I pulled the baking dish out of Edna, my beloved oven, and set it on my little table by the window to take pictures to share with you. I’ll just let this next picture speak for itself…….
I want to thank you for all the wonderful words of encouragement during my Mother-in-Law’s journey into Memory Care. So many of us have walked this path or we are in the process of walking the journey. It helps to share what we have learned with others. I read every response, text, comment, and email. Thank you from my heart.
Today I am sharing with you my Spinach Lasagne. So good. I mean, really, so good! It has a secret weapon baked in…..black beans! Oh baby those black beans make it mouth watering good.
It’s been two weeks of emotions all over the map to say the least. First and most importantly, let me share my Valentine present from my Sir Streusel. This was my happy point in the past two weeks. He had texted me the sweetest text earlier in the day and you can see my sweet response right back to my Valentine.
Are we the sweetest?! Well, let me share with you the diamonds I received.
And just like that love was blooming in our home!
Hey, do I have a romantic guy or what?! I love how we tease each other. If we do nothing else, we laugh…we laugh a lot. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. Life is too short. I loved my Valentine gift. I showed it off with pride. He knew exactly how much I would love lying in bed, eating my Pecan Log and watching any of the Housewives’s on Bravo. I can’t wait until next Valentine’s day. Continue reading Chicken Stew→
Baby it’s been cold outside! It has been a breath of fresh air and we were given the gift of no humidity for a few days. Oh my life is GOOD! Cold weather means coats and gloves, blankets and fuzzy socks, sweat pants and sweat shirts, but most importantly it means soup!! Cold weather and soup go hand in hand. This Tortellini soup is one of our favorites.
