Jyl’s Fruit Cocktail Pie


Today I'm happy to bring a guest post from Jyl. I was going to introduce her as "My friend,Jyl' but the more I think about it, it may be more suitable to call her "My accomplice, Jyl" because we're always scheming together over one thing or another. Between the two of us, we've just about got the whole world peace thing solved and figured out how to eradicate hunger and poverty. We're just waiting ... Continue Reading

Pecan Pie Cake & Why We Shouldn’t Wail & Carry On


Interesting things happen in my life every day. I don't share most of them with you because if I shared everything that I found interesting neither one of us would ever get anything done.  But today, today is different. This past Saturday, as I was taking my weekend special treat shower (that means I can take all the time I want, as opposed to the evening rushed shower), I looked down and saw ... Continue Reading

100 Reasons Why I’m Not A Cowgirl – August 26


So y'all may recall that earlier on in this shindig I posted that I felt everyone who broke both legs at the same time should be given a trip to Disney World. Naw, don't get all excited. That ain't happenin'. But having now spent over a month stuck in the house, unable to walk, yadda yadda yadda, HAS got me really wanting a trip to look forward to once ye olde legs start making themselves ...

100 Reasons Why I’m Not A Cowgirl : How To Make Brownies With Two Broke Legs


Decide you want to bake a little surprise treat for your family for the weekend. Go look in your pantry and see a box of brownie mix six feet above your head. Find a yard stick and spend the next ten minutes trying to knock it down. In the process, knock down a canister of oats, pack of salad dressing mix, several boxes of rice, and a small stack (only four or five boxes) of cake mix. BUT ... Continue Reading

100 Reasons Why I’m Not A Cowgirl – August 23


August 22 It doesn't feel too hot to me! So in my last post I told y'all that a sweet sweet lady was letting me borrow a portable ramp. Well the ramp is here and today we put it outside leading from the back door to the back deck, AKA my outdoor retreat that I have missed so much. I managed to get out there one time since the accident and it was a tumultuous undertaking for everyone ... Continue Reading

Angel Chicken Southern Plate

If you're on Pinterest or Facebook and could use one of those buttons above I'd sure appreciate it! If you've never heard of or had Angel Chicken, you're in good company! Until last week we fit into that category. Once we had our first bite, though, we were hooked. My husband kept saying "Oh man. Oh man. Oh man. You have GOT to get this recipe."

100 Reasons Why I’m Not A Cowgirl – August 20th


I've had a lot of people asking me why I don't update daily anymore like I did in the first week or so after the accident. It's simple : I want you to stay awake. Seriously, my life right now is pretty boring. I mean, I have two broke legs. I ain't going anywhere. I wake up at 4:30 or 5:00 and if I slept in the hospital bed I can get up myself but if I slept in my regular bed I have to wait ... Continue Reading
