Do you have your own business?


Do you try to have healthy meals on the table at an hour that every one wants to eat?

Tonight was a prime example of throw together, write blog and do ten other things at once, kind of night.

I have a large collection of cook books, it always seem to find another one that looks like it might have a great recipe to try. The pictures are so enticing and things look so delicious.

I think I have two book shelves full of ideas. Anything from healthy cooking, light cooking to the good stuff like cookies and deserts.

Dinner tonight was Spaghetti and Texas Toast.  First of all, I thought I had two half packages of meatballs in the freezer.  Thawed them out to put in the sauce and they were not both meatballs, one was chicken tenders.  Oh well a little short, back to blog while this warmed up, then the noodles decided to go all over the counter and the floor.  Managed to save enough to boil.   Oh well, back to blog.   I had a good idea and had to get it done.

All and All….We had a good meal and I got my blog done.  Lesson learned,  do one thing at a time.  Yeah right!


Come see what I came up with to share out of the collection I have, then share at the end.

  1. I collect vintage crockery but never use it as I am too afraid to break it. (I have two young boys) I also collect vintage cut glass when scouting around in the charity shops I just can’t resist if I see a vase!

    1. I remember having kids run around the house. I feel for you. The day will come for you to get creative. Don’t resist. I know how you feel. I get that way, as you can tell from my blog, but I also can’t resist purses, and shoes.
