Foodie Friday

 Good Morning.  Are you happy it's 


I have had an odd week.  It's been hard to tell what day it is.  

The Cowboy went into the hospital last Tuesday.  He is stable but they are having trouble in figuring out where and what the infection is.  

Please say a prayer for us! 

And now here are the dinner plates I fixed myself . . . 

Frozen Chopped Collard Greens.  They were way better than I expected.  I cooked Bacon and poured half the drippings in and then covered with homemade Veg stock. 
I had Mushrooms sauted in Butter and some drippings.  And 2 pieces of Bacon. 
And here is a little better pic.  I was happy with this meal. 
My meal Thursday was O.K. I had this plan . . . 
I cooked my Rice and then went to get Chili Rellenos out of freezer.  

As you can see I ended up with a piece of Grilled Corn from freezer.  And Jalapeno Poppers the Cowboy bought.  They were not good. 

This was the Cowboys meal on Wednesday or Thursday . . . 
He ate a few bites of Fish and Rice but was not chewing well yet. 
Left over store brand canned Black Eye Peas.  The best I have had in a long time! 

So good I love fresh Spinach.  This is the last.  It sure doesn't go far.  A few Tomatoes brand an Egg Roll.  They cook great in the Air Fryer! 
Tuna Casserole for 1.  Wasn't it sure of ratios but it worked.  I used half a can of Cream of Celery which I liked much better than Mushroom.  I don't see a difference in flavor.  
I don't care for the bits of Mushrooms in the Soup. 

LOL this is the person that had Mushrooms as a main course!   

Dinner tonight? 
Stay tuned!

Wordless Wednesday Cruisin'Galveston


Tea Time Tuesday


Good Morning today I have a little  different Tea Time post.

For the last several  weeks we have been unable to go into our Music Craft Studio . . . 

I saw this on Fb . . . 

I thought it would be fun to collect some Tea Pot birdhouses to share  . . .

I love these clever ideas.  I think the Birds do too.

Happy Homemaker in Texas


Joining Sandra's party.  Here are her prompts . . . 

The weather 

It's warmed up.  Beach ⛱️ weather in Galveston.  A bit of occasional rain usually at night.  The island is a gorgeous place to live. 

As I look outside my window

The craft room window I can see the remains of the bird nest.  Occasionally they come back for awhile . . . 

Right now I am 

Multi tasking . . . 

Bacon in oven for Breakfast

Writing this post

Thinking and pondering 

About my son and his horse breeding/training business.  They were unable to get his Mare pregnant.  So they officially retired her.  Now he will only ride and show her. 

How I am feeling 

Super happy my kids.and grandsons (cousins) got to meet and have a quick lunch in Texas before my son and grandson drove back to Missouri . . . 

On the breakfast plate 

Haven't made French Toast in forever! 

 It was so good!
