Where’s My Grill?

I may or may not have shared that my husband and I have sold our home and have moved to Central/Northern Arizona back in May.  Technically, we’re still “In the middle of the desert”, now it’s the High Desert.

As we were packing up all of our things in preparation for our big move, I made the decision that my Weber Little Smokey Joe grill would not be coming with us.

So I made up some handwritten “FREE” signs for him and his pal Weber Rapidfire Chimney and took them out to the main road from our place. I also left in the Chimney, the remains of the bag of charcoal and the stick lighter on the side of the road at a predominate intersection.
I bet my DH that they would be gone within 5 minutes… guess who won the bet?
They weren’t there 3 minutes (I clocked it) and they were GONE!

So, here we are going into Fall, and I still do not have a grill, neither charcoal nor propane.  Why do I tell this story at this juncture?  One of my blogging pals, Patrons of the Pit, was astonished that anyone could last this long without grilling.  My husband has already stated, numerous times, that the first we buy once our home is finished, is a pretty new grill.

Butter? I Don’t Like Butter!

EWWW, I don’t like butter on or in anything!”

Yup, that’s what my husband says, oh but add a whinny 12 year boy’s voice to that and you’ve nailed it!

Now, why am I telling you all this?  Well, the last couple of times that I’ve dashed into the Dollar Store to pick up some inexpensive plastic serving plates or bowls, he’s come in with me to “look around”.

Butter Cookies

This is what he’s bought from himself, each time!

Happy Saturday!

It’s PJ’s Sunday

It’s Sunday, a kick-back kinda day.  Like, maybe have some Pancakes and BACON!! for brunch, yes brunch not breakfast.  Oh, and there’s Sunday Football on television or you could possibly watch your favorite Baseball team; actually read the entire Sunday Newspaper, or simply snooze on the sofa all day.

But it’s DEFINITELY a PJ’s day, all day!

It's PJ's Sunday!

…and let’s not forget that comfy-snuggly-warm robe and some socks!

Another reason that I’m going to wear my `jammas all day is in solidarity for one of my “friends” that I’ve met through my blog.  Mrs. Beans aka Rita.  Rita’s blog is Whats2eat2day.  Rita and her husband are going through a rough patch right now and today Rita has proclaimed Total Pajama Day.  In support of my “friend”, I will stay in my PJ’s as well.

Happy Total Pajama Day!

Very Strange Weather

How wacky is this?


This is what our mini weather station said today.  When we woke up early this morning, it was 36 degrees fahrenheit.  AND THEN, this afternoon it got all the way up to 102!



We Will Remember!

I Found A New Wine

<Edit: WOW! One really should proof read when they are not tired! The title was “I Found A Wine Wine”, say what?!>

I was at the Green Grocer, aka Sprouts, today and something caught my eye …

A new wine!

Hatch Green Chile Wine

Well, I’m not too sure about this one, but we’ll see.

Chicken With 40 Cloves Of Garlic, In The Slow Cooker

I have seen this recipe many times, done in many ways through the years, but I’ve never made it. I was really sick last Summer and my Cooking Light Magazines (along with others) got back logged…I just couldn’t concentrate enough to make it through a single page.

This Summer, we are in a rental apartment, as we have sold our home and are waiting for our new home to be built; we have NO TELEVISION, GASP!!  What better time to catch up on some recreational reading.
