Summer Salad


We have so many tomatoes from our garden…it really is on its last leg.  My fridge drawer is overrun so I decided a Salad would be the best thing to do.  Also, fried up some bacon this morning so BLTs will be on tap soon.  As I was shopping my juices were flowing to get this salad ready as soon as possible.  And after a bit of prep time the outcome is just what I was hoping to have!  #scrumptious

Loving Lately: Coffee

I cannot take credit for any of these photos which were found courtesy of Pinterest.

Now that that is out of the way…

I love coffee. I started drinking it at a very young age, a watered down version that would make an appearance every Sunday morning along side donuts, at a fellowship gathering we would have at church before services began.

I love it in the morning when the air is cool…


I love to have a cup with my breakfast.


And any time of day to accompany dessert.


I take mine black, but do not object to the creamy froth that (depending on the process) can accumulate on top.


I love to talk with friends over a cup of coffee, at home or catching up at a café…


I probably have a dozen apparatuses for coffee preparation. As far as I’m concerned there is really no wrong way to prepare…

Paleo Breakfast Delight


Straight from the Farm…Eggs, Ham & Chives…

The only thing needed was of course No Salt, Pepper & a light sprinkle of Original Mrs. Dash…perfect.

This, along with a scrumptious ‘cupajo’ … Heaven in all this heavy rain…

Oh BTW, don’t you love my dessert plate?  Y’all may realize by now that I do enjoy using various eye catching dishes! 😉


Jackie O’s Blog Friends Brunch


I’m so glad to join in.  I had such such a fun time preparing to celebrate my first year of Hostesses as a Premier designs Jeweler.  Without them & the customers they brought to the table during all those Shows my business wouldn’t be the success it is.  Rather than tell all about I’ll show you some pics.


So…how do you like my submission for Jackie O’s Brunch? 💞



You’re Cordially Invited to Join in….Brunch will be more fun with you!

Are you new in the town of Blogosphere?

Are you relatively young in Blog-Land?

Hello and welcome.

I know what it feels like to be a new kid on the block, wondering how I can find my footing and makes some friends.

Sometimes, it seems like a drag and takes ages, but we are here to support each other.

This is one place you can hop in and meet some awesome, lovely, friendly blogger friends of mine.

You get an opportunity to showcase yourself, interact and gain some confidence.

It shouldn’t be a worry that you don’t have so much going on in your blog at the moment.

Remember that ‘iron sharpens iron’ and you can get inspired from seeing what others are doing by mingling with them.

We are quite a supportive bunch to hang out with even if we do get to paint the town red a couple…

It is Soooo Good


Can this Paleo Diet be this good and this good for you and the same time?

Here’s proof! Tell me!


I say a resounding YES!

This is probably one of the easiest and most tasty I’ve done.

Crockpot Chicken Vegetable Soup

3 skinless chicken leg quarters

1/2 lb. baby carrots

4 stalks of celery, cut to your preference

1 yellow onion, julienned

Water, just to cover

No Salt, Pepper, Mrs. Dash to taste just sprinkled over top, layered according to order I listed.

I let it cook about 3 hours on high, then added 2 cups of hot water with 2 bouillon cubes dissolved, poured in at the side, then let it cook about another hour on low.

I let it cool enough then to dish up in a souffle casserole dish and refrigerate overnight.  Had this for lunch….the next day.  Excellent.  My husband made a pot of rice on the side to have with his.  I love it just the way it is.  It’s breakfast time right now as I type this.  May have that instead of eggs. Hmm. Well, maybe I’ll have it for lunch after Church!

(Oh, I know it’s not tomorrow but I had that post in my Drafts a couple days and didn’t realize it.)

Bless us O Lord, in these, Thy gifts, which we are about to receive.  In Thy Bounty, through Christ our Lord, Amen! (a table blessing we often said during my childhood)

It’s Chicken Tonight


Paleo Lifestyle still ROCKS!

I baked skinless chicken leg quarters with Lemon Pepper, No Salt & pepper; Hubby grilled skinless chicken leg quarters adding BBQ sauce; I have chicken leg quarters in bottom of crockpot with veggies & broth making soup for later.  We did have some cut green beans with our chicken.  I had the baked, he had the BBQ grilled.  Soup, yep, still on!


I’ll let you see it tomorrow.


And today I was able to, along with my sweetheart, begin by guiding our 18 year old in some Adulting moments!  We know it can be challenging but has to be done.  1st step in building his own credit, signing his life away including getting his own Insurance Policy…Tag within 5 business days….Thankful he has a good job….almost through with High School.  Looking forward with great responsibility.


Political Luncheon Event Today.


You really can eat out, have what you like customized to your taste, and not stand out!  I have always loved cheese, sauces, chips, bread, etc. dairy, let’s not forget lots of dairy products.  I am however, enjoying Paleo so far (Cavewoman) Rah!

Taco Salad (Chicken) with no dairy…Awesome!
