Monday...From Recipes To Spiders!!

      I haven't done this in a while, and doing it on a Monday after a bad weekend seems like a good time to do it! :-) Do what, you say?!...Share a few things I'm loving right now, of course! :-) I don't know if these things will end up being trends or not, but I like 'em, so that's all that counts around here! ^_^
      In the header photo is a wooden cutting board that you can write your favorite recipe on! Isn't that a great idea?!...Although for me it would be hard, because I have so many favorite recipes, that it would be hard to commit ONE to the permanency of a cutting board! O_O 
      What are my favorite recipes, you ask?! LOL...I know! You really didn't ask, but guess what?!....I'm gonna tell you anyway! Ha! Ha!...My favorite recipes are: 

-- my Shepherd's Pie, made with ground hamburger, onions, hot pepper flakes, corn, mashed potatoes (REAL potatoes, Y'all! Not those boxed things!!!), cream of mushroom soup, and sharp cheddar cheese!

-- Homemade Turkey stuffing, made with the boiled and chopped up giblets from a whole turkey, corn bread (cooked and then crumbled up into the mix), chicken broth, onions, red and green peppers, eggs, buttermilk, olive oil, browned sausage, and milk. {You basically have to re-bake it like you do corn bread when it's all mixed the second time!)

--my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies...I'm NOT gonna tell you my recipe secrets for this one!! LOL I may write a book about it one day though! :-))

--my Homemade Cheesecakes, made with Philadelphia brand cream cheese, eggs, vanilla, etc...and a secret ingredient! ^_^... No! I'm not gonna tell you what this secret ingredient is either, but it's fooled some cheesecake connoisseurs over the years!! ^_^

--and last, for now...because I could be here all day!... ^_^ Curry Chicken with Peas and Pearl Onions, made with curry...chicken...peas...and pearl onions! LOL..In fact, that's what we had for dinner last night!...and I just had a little bit for breakfast too! ^_^

      Okay, let's move on to the other items I'm loving right now!...

      How cool is that bag, right?! :-] It gives new meaning to 'brown-paper-bags'...and hummingbirds too, for that matter! ^_^

      And how cool are these pet bowls!...

      They're a long shot better than the brown, cracked, and warped bowls we used to use for our doggies...back in the day when we had doggies! :-] I wouldn't be ashamed for visitors to see these!! ^_^

      And if you visit this blog any time, you already know my love for black and white!...

      Oh!...Sooooo Cool! :-)

      And lastly...EWWWWWW! It's A Spider!!!! LOL...

      I'm not a fan of a spider...EVER!!!! But this 'crochet pattern' amazed me!! I mean, look at the detail!!!...Who has that kind of patience?!...Clearly...not me!! LOL But I think somebody will love it, so I'm sharing it! ^_^

      As for me, I'm crocheting...but not spiders! ^_^ I started another wedding shawl. It's not the same pattern that I did last time though. This one is more lacy looking. And it's more tedious too. Basically the same pattern over and over...and over and over...and over and over again!! O_O I hope I can hang with it until it's done...Not like a certain rainbow baby blanket that I started...and put down...and still haven't finished! *sigh*
      Okay Y'all, have a good rest of the day! :-)
