About Me

My photo


Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scraps and Snippets ~ What's for Dinner?


 Sometimes nothing sounds good for dinner. Honestly, I would probably be content with popcorn or oatmeal most of the time. Or standing at the sink and eating a tomato like an apple and letting the juice run down my arm. Or hummus smeared on something. Yeah. But when you know you have to put some effort in to make someone else satisfied, well, that's where I gotta think things through. 

We still have tomatoes, and a few cucumbers, thanks to our crazy weather. Not all of them are beauties, but we still have some to pick and eat. So chopped cucumber and tomatoes with balsamic vinegar. Yum. 

Since trying the Harmony Valley dehydrated "hamburger" last week, I've been wondering if the sausage was any good. Wonder no more. I added the water, let it sit and fried it up in a pan sprayed lightly with coconut oil. Then I crumbled a few patties over crescent roll triangles, rolled em up and baked them as per the package. Okay. We were hungry. But darn, they were good. 

Harmony Valley dehydrated sausage? Yep. Going to be ordering that again. I'm thinking overnight breakfast casserole, shredded potatoes, some chunks of bread, a tofu "egg" base, non-dairy cheese or "cheese" sauce, onions and Harmony Valley sausage. Going to have to get to work on this very soon.
