My Mama!

My mama is one for the record books. She has gone through so much past and present. Haven't we all? As a child, I've seen all she's endured considering herself and her children. She birthed seven living children, two within the same year. Yes, a daughter in January and a son in December. We always ask Gramma how in the world she did that. Gramma simply says "She went out and got pregnant right after having the other one." Oooookay. Nuf said perhaps? 

Indeed I learned most my cooking skills from my mama. If you need a variation of cooking chicken let me know. As Bubba Gump had his plethora of shrimp creations, so did my mama with her chicken dishes. Of course, the best was fried chicken. My favorite growing up was the drumstick. Now, it's the wing. Go figure. Anyway, you may wonder why I elaborate on her chicken so much? Because we grew up 7 deep (7 children), didn't have much, and she sure could stretch meals with that chicken. Don't get me started on pork. 

I thank God for the strength I gained from her. I thank God for the lessons I learned from her. I thank God for my mama.

Happy Mother's Day Mama!

Grilled Peaches & Herb

Why not pair fruit with herbs? Why not grill them? Growing up, I used to listen to my Mom's records often. So, when I hear 'peaches & herb' I can't help but to remember the 1960s duo and their hit "Reunited". I came up with this grilled creation and dedicate it to 'Peaches & Herb'. GRILLED PEACHES & HERB                           INGREDIENTS :6-7 peaches (real peaches, not nectarines), 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 1/4 c. brown sugar (dark brown, light brown, it doesn't matter...just brown sugar), fresh lemon thyme sprig or 1 tbsp. (dry should be okay since the liquid from the peach will reconstitute the dryness) TOOLS & EQUIPMENT : knife, foil, grill YIELDS : approximately 5 cups STEPS : Rinse peaches Wash the fresh herb. See blog of "How to wash fresh herbs" Layer the ingredients, peaches first, in a foil pouch. See blog of "How to Create a Foil Pouch"  Grill for 30-45 minut

How to Spray-Paint a Leather Chair

Mr. B. wanted this chair from my Gramma sooooo bad. It's a plush, large leather chair she had as a pair in her entrance sitting area. She gave it to him like it was nothing. Hmph, what can I get so easily? Just kidding. She'd give you anything you asked for. I had no idea where this man wanted to put such a huge chair. With the Batcave project in planning stages, a spot was found for it. But how does a brown chair fit into a Batman/ batcave theme? Ah, old faithful spray-paint. Again, this chair was BROWN!  You must work with the paint as it is wet so the wet colors merge. Work in separate areas at one time if you're not quick enough. For instance, if you're too intimidated and find yourself working slow, work with the back first, then another section, and so forth.  I began by spraying the chair with the dominant color black.  While the black paint was still wet and at a distance, I sparingly sprayed the secondary color of the blue. The keyword on th

Four Hands & Nine Hours- A Pergola in a Day

I have wanted a pergola for years. The fancy ones, even in simplest structure, were a minimum of $1k and I always knew I could construct my own. I just had to do it. I use the community app NextDoor and a kind lady happened to post her desire to get rid of cedar wood left over from her pergola build, which was gorgeous by the way. I immediately responded that I would pick it up. Free cedar wood? Of course, I couldn't let that pass! I was going to blog the entire process of me building this thing, but it just wasn't happening. The sun was a total, brutal beat-down and my frustration level had far exceeded any hint of considering a blog idea. Forget that. The advice I can give is that you can do this project, too! The instructions I had, called for one size of something and I needed another size of something else. Plan your project and ensure you have all materials, tools, and help available!  My husband drilled the two holes for the post bases.  Me and my thirteen year old s
