    I got mine from Annarchy too. She has been peeking in my ornament boxes. LOVE IT!!! Mine are in the mail but since today is Veterans Day they are still sitting here in town. Everyone should have theirs by week end.
  5. With Some Warning - Short Straw

    I was telling DS1 about this and he told me to send him the link, he has an account on here. And he would read over mine again and help me fill in more of the security sections. I may copy mine off and continue the story. Oh this could be fun bring it up to date and all.
  6. Amazon Key

    Uhmmm no not happening. This is why I have packages delivered to work. Or track them online and since I am good friends with the UPS driver here make arrangements to meet him at my house. No one and I do mean no one unless I pushed out out of my whowho gets a key to my house.
  7. With Some Warning - Short Straw

    I had forgotten about this. After rereading it well, I have decided to add a pellet cooker to my stash. We have a friend that has one and we made cookies on it. Oh it is a hefty price tag but if I can cook on it without the taste of charcoal or having to buy propane then I think it might be a good investment for those "no electricity" times.
  8. beans, beans the musical fruit

    OMG let me tell you how I spiced up canned pintos. At the church where I work they have Wed nite dinner. Well the cook called in sick and it was Wednesday. So the pastor and I came up with Mexican Stack. Which is basically taco salad. So I ran to the store and bought everything needed. I got the bright idea to make charro beans and cilantro lime rice but couldn't find everything needed for the beans. So I though well what I have will have to do. Here is what I used... 1 #10 can pintos 3 cans of fire roasted tomatoes 1 onion diced 1 bunch of cilantro diced ham (bought a small pack of sliced ham and diced it) 5 fresh jalapenos (deseeded and diced_ lime juice from one lime. 2 tablespoons minced garlic 1 tablespoons chili powder 1 tablespoon cumin Put in the crock pot on high for 3 hours. They loved it. Had lots of calls for the recipe today. I am thinking this would be great using dry beans and a ham bone. Cooking on low all day. Serve with cornbread and you have a meal
  9. Need lots of prayers

    MtRider, it is just our area. Here people got greedy when oil was $150 a barrel and they over pumped. They basically flooded the market. We are small town /agri rural and yes the main job provider cut back big time which caused two plants here to do major cut backs and a lot of the little roustabout companies went where there was work or closed up shop. I still have my job at the church but well no benefits and the pay is good for a church but not enough to support a family on and make house payments.
  10. Home from Vacation

    It was AWESOME. If I ever win the lottery I think I could live in the mountains, it was beautiful.

    Wow, I missed it all. We were on vacation. Thank you ladies for getting everything back up and running.
  13. beans, beans the musical fruit

    How did I ever miss this post. I am bookmarking the link until I can go through it and print off some recipes. We are trying to add more dried beans to our diets and cut back on meats. This is wonderful. Thank you!
  14. poverty cooking

    When we lived in NC we had three college age boys at home. Man I thought it was tough feeding them when they were kids and played sports. I learned to cook just about everything from scratch. I remember one time Kroger had an AWESOME sale and I stocked up. My shopping cart was overflowing. I had like 5 5# bags of unbleached flower, cornmeal, all your basic supplies and this lady looked at my shopping cart and said "Do you know what to do with all of that?" I was floored. This lady was older than me (I was mid 40's at the time) I said yes I cook everything from scratch. She was shocked. She said I need to come to your house and learn to cook. I asked if she knew how to make pie crust and homemade bread. She said no she never learned. I just looked at her and smile and pushed my cart on down the isle. Even now with an empty nest we still cook 99% of the stuff from scratch. So much healthier.
