Zac Brown Band and the best song ever...

I love happy songs, feel good, make you smile songs...this one is right up there on the top of the happy song list. What is better then chicken fried and a cold beer (wine) on a friday night and a pair of jeans that fit just right??? Nothing, nothing can beat that!

Fall Fun and Fabulous Finn!

Got to go to a few concerts, Tanya is always on the ready with our super secret ticket source...
Rod Stewart, Jim Belushi, and The Zac Brown Band!
Rod still sounds amazing!

Jim was ok, nothing spectacular.
These guys are out of this world AMAZING!!!!
 All were good but the Zac Band blew us away, if you get the chance run right out, they sang everyone, not just country, classic rock from Queen to Led Zep to Van Morrison!
It was awesome, the crowd LOVED them. I ran right home and got the albums on ITunes!

I also made eye contact with a Betta fish in walmart, he was so happy to meet me, of course I had to bring him home.
I had the aquarium from the fish fiasco of a few months ago, Ethan brought us a goldfish from the carnival, after I spent 50.00 on supplies he only lived 3 days. So I cleaned the tank and said no more pets.
Well, that did not last long. Once I met Finn it was all over, he is so beautiful! I got him some real plants and bridge to play under, he seems happy and healthy! long live Finn!!!

Fabulous Finn!
His Home Sweet Home!
Hope you are having a wonderful fall!

Scrapbook expo Ontario

Just got back from scrapbook expo in Ontario California!
We scrapped, we ate, we drank wine!
I got some nice pages done in my Scandinavian Cruise book.
Travis, Rebecca, and Della came out one day to have lunch!
So good to see them!
Taking the rest of the year off to snuggle down for winter, I have 4 scrapbook trips planned for next year, wheeeee!!




Hmm, someone runs hot and someone runs cold!
 I always bring a scarf, hat and my fingerless mittens!
Those warehouses get mighty cold!

Fall can be fun????

I pinned a recipe for a creamy chicken soup, not your ordinary chicken soup, something new, will try it when it gets a little colder here. If you are cold enough where you live just go here to get a jump start but let me know how it turns out! Creamy Chicken Soup

I am cleaning and organizing getting ready for the winter hibernation period...I love that I can walk on my treadmill at night with the garage door open and the chill in the air coming through...
I have many new recipes to try this winter so get ready to get fat!

just about what happens when I am on the treadmill....hubby thinks I am running...hahahahaha!

I am going scrapbooking soon with Christy and Mary and we will scrapbook, drink wine, eat good food, and just relax. I love my scrapbooking trips....they keep me sane.

Not much new going on here, just gearing up for winter, cleaned out my closet and switched out my shorts and tank tops for turtlenecks and corduroys! I love my cords, Victoria's Secret makes the best corduroys in the world!

yeah, that's what I look like in them...bahhahahahaha!
I am old school, love my cut-offs in summer and my cords in winter....

Keep smiling and keep working hard and praying for a brand new day...

Okie Tacos

Sorry if that title is not politically correct but that is the only name I know these tacos go by!
It is a family recipe handed down from some okies from Muskogee...
Alene Edminson I believe was her name...

My mom had a boyfriend and that boyfriend had a mom that liked to cook big meals for everyone on Sundays, if we all went fishing at little rock dam, she would cook up trout and catfish, with Pappy's famous hush puppies, but if we did not catch anything we ate Okie Tacos, and I was sure glad when we did not catch anything cause them there Okie Tacos are to simply to die for!

Taco fit for an Oklahoma king!
Here is how you get yourself one of them there Okie Tacos:

1 pound ground beef
1/2 onion chopped
1 medium can kidney beans, drain and smash them a bit
1 medium can Las Palmas enchilada sauce
1 small can sliced black olives drained
1 jar cheez whiz-do not leave this out, it makes the damn taco!
lettuce chopped
tomatoes chopped
sour cream

some 8 inch flour tortillas and some Crisco oil to fry them up in

Brown your beef and onions, add sauce, olives, beans. Bring to boil then turn down fire to simmer for about 30 minutes. Then heat up the Crisco, about 1/2 cup full in a large cast iron skillet, just enough to coat the bottom and fry up your tortillas until crispy and brown, lay on some paper towels to drain, once you have your meat mix cooked and your tortillas fried up, just grab a tortilla, ladle a big ol spoonful of meat mix in, top with a line of cheez whiz, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, fold up and enjoy, sometimes if it gets too messy you have to eat with a fork! This will make about 8 tacos, but they are big and filling, so you don't need much!

And there you go, Okie Tacos! D-DamnDelicious!! YeeHaw!!!
