Easy Peasy Cheeseburger Pie

Cheeseburger Pie TabledLast week I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner. I was out of ideas and was hoping he had a hankering for something I hadn’t fixed in a while.  His answer surprised and dismayed me.  “How about hamburgers on the grill?” he said.  Ugh.  I asked him what he wanted and then I didn’t like the answer!  I hate it when that happens. 🙂

It was cold outside and a hamburger just didn’t appeal to me. However, I thanked him for his suggestion and went on my way to a meeting in town.  As I drove I remembered seeing a picture of a cheeseburger pie rolling around the data banks in my head.

The Gift of Time

Gently falling snow
Today I was given a beautiful gift. The gift of time.  For many of us our daily calendars fill up with running from place to place. From task to task.  UP and out of the house early, in and out of the car, home again and then off to a meeting or the grocery store!

So when a winter storm blows through sending rain, ice, and snow into middle Tennessee, those of us who can stay home  are wise to do so.  One man’s storm is another’s gift.  Icy roads have me grounded today and I am so thankful.  I am truly sorry for those who must go out and drive in the ice, slush and snow.  I am sorry for the hostesses who planned our garden club meeting for this morning. But for me, I am happy, happy, happy!

After a lovely devotional time this morning, which I shared with my husband, I set off to the kitchen.  There is nothing like warming up the house with something lovin’ coming from the oven! But wait there’s more! Click to continue reading

Thank you to all of my readers who have sent emails, left comments, and have taken the time to share words of encouragement for my nephew, Richard.  In case you missed it you might want to read “You Really Aren’t Going To Believe This”.

I decided it is time I get back to some sweet blogging.  2016 seems to be running at Mach speed in my life and this weekend I intend to slow it down a notch! So, let’s make cookies!


TWD Cookie Tower
Last fall I wanted to take cookies to a friend who was under the weather.  I remembered a particularly delicious cookie recipe that comes from Dorie Greenspan’s book Baking With Julia.

I asked my sous-chef dishwashing mom if she would mind making the cookies.  She quickly said YES and away she went with the project.

You Really Aren’t Going To Believe This

Our 51-year-old nephew, Richard, is confined to a wheelchair due to a degenerating spinal stenosis.  A couple of years ago a fall in his place of business rendered him a quadriplegic.  A life-saving surgery fused rods in his neck leaving him unable to move his head from side to side, but allowing his lungs to expand and continue providing him life-giving air!  Through the grace of God he has enough mobility in his hands to operate a power wheelchair.  It is a blessing to have a room and care in a skilled nursing home. But it is also a curse.  He is a young man in an old man’s world. But wait there’s more! Click to continue reading
