Well I have gone to the doctor and got some meds and am feeling a little better.  I will go be going to work today.  I work part time at a local grocery store.  Tonight we are going to have leftover steak sandwiches.  I didn't feel like eating a whole lot yesterday due to my  throat feeling like it was on fire. 
Last night, Joe and I went and looked at a car for our daughter.  I know she won't be driving it by herself for about 9 months, but it doesn't hurt to look right?  So we ended up buying her dream car!  Can you believe her dream car is a 1967 chevy impala?  This is car is in great shape and we didn't have to pay hardly anything for it!  Abby is so excited, it's just like the car on her favorite tv show Supernatural! 
Well have a good day everyone!

About Me
I learned to cook watching my mom and my Grandma's cook - who all are the best in the world! I have huge garden and I can a lot of stuff for winter. My daughter would'nt dream of eating a pie that was store bought! And we raise chickens. There is nothing that compares to farm fresh eggs. They just make your baked goods taste better.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food! If it's fattening, chocolate or salty I'm in! I love to take leftovers and transform them into something wow!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always made sugar cookies with us kids at Christmas time and do the same thing now! I used to love to pick out a recipe and Mom would let me got to town in the kitchen! At Christmas I also make tons of candy's, breads, and cookies that I give away to neighbors and family for gifts.
My cooking triumphs
I love to enter canned goods and baked goods in the county fair! I have won quite a few ribbons! I recently had a recipe published in Nebraska Life Magazine's cookbook. I was so excited.
My cooking tragedies
One time I tried to make pierogies when I was about 15. Well I didn't realize how much a cast iron skillet would smoke when it got hot! I ended up filling the house with a lovely smokey aroma! I never have made them again! Another time I tried to make chicken satay, and my husband and daughter about gagged when they tried the sauce. As they said peanut butter doesn't go with chicken! But I loved it. They were scraping the sauce off the chicken. They won't let me live that one down!
