A Renewed Commitment

I have a tendency to be a tad perfectionistic.  I like things a certain way.  Orderly.  Maybe to a fault.  Once Mama Train made fun of me because I told her my kids couldn’t play with their toys properly if they weren’t organized correctly. Some of you who know me and have seen my house […]

Thought I’d do a quick update on my Garden Project. After a couple of weeks, my first batch of seeds have mostly all sprouted.  Still waiting on the peppers, but I am beginning to see a little green under the dirt! So my next step is to get my garden tilled outside. Hoping to do […]

The Houston Blizzard of 2011

Fried Zucchini Strips

Fried Zucchini Strips

I had some zucchini in the fridge last week that I needed to cook before it went bad, and was having trouble coming up with something to do with it.  In the end, I tried something new, and the results were well received. I used a Julienne peeler to peel the zucchini into strips.  You […]
