Healthy and Yummy Dinner

I hardy ever use measurements when cooking ... that way every meal is different and a surprise! Most of the times a pleasant surprise :-) Like these Black Eyed Peas Vegballs. I used one can of Black Eyed Peas and mixed with cooked white rice (about half a cup), chopped yellow onion, tomato paste, old fashion oats and spices (salt. pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and Italian herbs). Then I shaped them into balls, fried them all around till slightly browned and then poured Marinara Sauce over to let them simmer for about 10-15 minutes. I served them over spaghetti with some grated cheese on top. Yum!

The Best Answer I've Ever Heard

The question: "What do you think about today's country music?"

The answer is Jim Lauderdale's: "You can't judge country music by what's currently popular."

Meaning that music genres constantly evolve. He also pointed out that rock music is not the same today as it was when it started out. What is popular always changes. My addition: Looking at country music as a whole, think about how rich it is with different sub-genres to meet (almost) everyone's taste.

Honoring Independence Day

This is the crafts project I did today to pay tribute to the Red, White and Blue:
I printed out eight flags on a sheet of paper and cut them out ....

... and then I cut a fishing line long enough to fit the window I wanted it at and a little bit more and glued the flags backside to backside with the fishing line in between ... and hung it up ...

Happy 238th Birthday USA!!!

Mmmmm ... fried green tomatoes ...

I recently had a veggie plate at Vittle's in Brentwood. I was thrilled to see that they have fried green tomatoes on their menu (when in season) and I surely and thoroughly enjoyed my first taste of the southern classic!
What I drank? Sweet tea of course :-)
