We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Meet Jennifer, Zephyr's first crush. Personally, I think she is beautiful.  He says he is going to marry her -- when he grows up. We love Jennifer and have to take him to see her at Super S in Three Rivers.  He has already asked her to attend his next birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. 

On the weekends, I like to make a stew or dish in the crock pot for Monday dinners. This is a three meat variety with beef, tripe, and salt pork.  Tonight I will add more vegetables, along with any seasoning it will require from the broth I will make a roux with some flour for thickening.  Then tomorrow it will be served piping hot to my hubby for dinner.  Anything not consumed will be put into the deep freezer in one meal serving packets for easy thawing.

Do you want to know what my definition of chivalry?

Simple:   it's when your husband does things to enhance your life without asking because, he knows your weakness, flaws, or limitations.  I can not handle raw potato thus he cleans and preps the tubers for my recipes.  This really melts my butter!

Hope Ya'll are having a super weekend even though, this heat is oppressive.

my first crush was Sir Slowhand Eric Clapton, back then he was a bad boy.
Too hot here too, but there are only so many cold dishes my family will eat before they revolt. I had to turn on the oven too, over the weekend.
Have a great week!

LOL No Joke Sharon, It is too hot thus the need for crock pot cooking. I think my husband is a treasure, I am very fortunate. HUGS

I think he had gorgeous green eyes didn't he, John?

Polly, I am in search of fall. I hope everyone is correct about the winter coming early this year. We have not had snow here in over 7 years.
