January 30th – Kitchen Duty

The last couple of weeks have been rather hit and miss when it came to home cooking so it is time to get back to pulling some kitchen duty.

Dan was home last night so it was a good evening to cook up a package of (frozen) shrimp we picked up last week. They were smallish shrimp so they were not the best – and they were a pain to clean, but overall the meal was doable. Dan helped by de-veining the shrimp and slicing up the garlic, onions, and mushrooms. 🤗

Frying a bit of garlic in butter to start the shrimp off with.
Sliced onions and mushrooms were added to the garlic.
Seasoning a small beef tenderloin that we would share. (Small but THICK)
Supper is served – Shrimp, garlic, mushrooms, onions and herbs on a bed of Fettuccine Alfredo, grilled steak and asparagus on the side. With ice water. 😊

Being Sunday, we started today off with a brunch of bacon, eggs, and toast. To be honest, we started the day off with coffee and by the time I had the bacon cooked, it was brunch time. (Ok! It was lunch time but we still called it brunch.)

I always cook more than enough bacon so we have some on hand for Caesar salad and the like. (This past summer I discovered egg salad sandwiches with bits of warmed bacon sprinkled on the eggs – SO GOOD!)
Brunch is served!

That’s it for today. Take care and have a great day!💞


September 23rd – Quality of Life

A large ‘piece of my mind’ has been busy struggling to get in and stay in a good place lately. I could go into any number of situations that have been driving this recent funk.

  • Federal Canadian politics
  • Saskatchewan provincial politics
  • City of Regina politics
  • People who whine about taxes
  • People who whine about everything they want the government to pay for (with taxes)
  • Covid – Version 4.0
  • Cranky Facebook people who whine about everything
  • Family issues
  • Health issues
  • FALL – dreary, dusty, chilly, FALL
  • Upcoming holidays 🎄🎃🎉🦃

So many reasons to be funked! But the bottom line is LIFE is PRECIOUS! Too precious to be wasted being funked out for any reason. Nothing on the list is worth more than the quality of my life.

So once again, I am just going to focus on LIFE! and the things that matter. Because life is too precious to let it slip away unappreciated. 💞

That is it for today folks!

Take care and have a great rest of the day!💞
