This is My Day

Changes, changes, changes.  I wanted to make a pecan pie on Saturday,the recipe that Me Maw made.  I was sure it was on my blog!  Looked and looked but could not find it.  What I did fine were lots of memories and tiles.  So yesterday I decided I would accomplish something!  So many tile verses that gave me a boost at getting started.

I am very happy with the way it taste.

1 bag chopped cauliflower
1 small onion chopped
chili seasoning to taste
tomato salsa from a jar or rotel
garlic powder
1 T oil

Stir fry the onions and cauliflower until crisp tender.
stir in seasonings, and salsa.  Add water.
Simmer until hot.

Can't believe all the changes that have taken place since 2016.  Many changes that I like and many that I don't like, but that is the way life of life.

I am still painting tiles, but have also moved into cards and 2x2 fridge magnets.  They are fun to do.

Choose Joy .

Home grown sweet potatoes

Today is the day I am eating my garden fresh sweet potatoes..I can not believe how good they are.  In fact, I am already planning next year crop.  I saw a recipe on Pinterest for tots.  Well, do I ever leave a recipe alone.  No! What fun is that?

First I baked my little potatoes then let them cool.  That didn't take long because mine weren't that big.  After they cooled I pealed the skin off and gave them a mash with a fork.  I also tasted..they were so good, but I had in mind tots.

Next step...instead of flour...what to use as glue?  I know! Oatmeal soften in water! In it goes along with garlic power and season salt.  Formed into ball and roll in Panko bread crumbs.

As I write, I am waiting for them to toast a little.  Can't wait to try.
