Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

Menu Plan Monday - February 1
WHERE ON EARTH DID JANUARY GO? Seriously, I am stunned!
Last week, I was pleasantly surprised with how good the food I purchased through Angel Food was. The only disappointment I had was probably the roast, but at 1.5 pounds, really there wasn't a lot that could be said. However, the gravy that came of cooking that little bugger all day was superb! In fact, I was able to parlay it into gravy to go with the baked chicken breasts I made, and I am going to use it for my first recipe this week. We were pleasantly surprised with a pie brought to our home from one of the pastors of a church I visited last week (a friend's husband was getting baptized). That made a wonderful dessert addition for Saturday evening's chicken and Sunday night's barbecued baby back ribs.
Now on to this week. I have a pretty full freezer, so I am going to work on taking it down a few notches. :)
Simple Shepherd's Pie - Basically this is about as basic as it gets. Ground beef cooked with garlic powder, chopped onions and pepper combined with frozen corn (left over from Angel Food corn) and the leftover gravy from last week's roast, topped with mashed potatoes (hoping that I have enough potatoes to succeed in this endeavor).

Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
