Delicious Blessing

Unfortunately, I have succumbed to a nasty cold. I suppose it was inevitable with the stress and going in and out of the hospital for weeks. However, I was able to get some rest yesterday when more family was here. My sister even did some meal prep and she put a meal in the crock […]

Food Processor

It was a snowy day, so seemed like a good time to try out the new food processor my son got me for Christmas. I had already unboxed it, read all the instructions, run all the parts through the dishwasher, and even watched a couple of videos on how to work it. For lunch, I […]
