Cool Temps, Sun, A Book, And A Lovely Mug

Posted by terrepruitt on October 31, 2022

We do not need another mug in the house.  I have already said this on Twitter after I bought – yes, bought this mug.  I really liked everything about it.  The color, the design, the shape, the size, and the fact that the handle is high on the mug itself.  It is a great mug.  I like to use all our different mugs, but I do have a few favorites and this is now one of them.

And then last week I posted how I love our winters and was reminded by a friend that it is actually fall – snap!  My point was that our winters are mellow (not much different than fall/autumn) and both seasons bring temps that actually allow me to sit outside in the sun.  I enjoyed the rest of my coffee outside while listening to a book.

What I find funny when I look at the mug is, I bought it loving the bird on it, but didn’t even notice the heart until I got it and really looked at it.  There are a few hearts on it.  It is a great mug . . . even though it was not needed.  🙂

Does your household have a lot of mugs?  What are you reading/listening to?

Reminds Me Of Our Yard Roses

Posted by terrepruitt on October 21, 2022

This rose reminds me of our yard roses.  The ones we used to have.  When we first moved in we had a rose bush with very orange roses.  Over the years they have adjusted color.  This one is sweet.  And, yes, even though the roses are clearly labeled at the Rose Garden I did not take pictures or the placards or make note of them.  I was just snapping pictures for my Friday Photo posts.

Here Is A Bigger View

Posted by terrepruitt on October 14, 2022

Here is a view of a few of the rose bushes and the rows at the Rose Garden.  As you can see, yes, they all have placards, but I just get distracted by the roses and don’t think to take a picture of the names.

I think I have a few more photos I can use for my Friday Photo . . . I’m not done with the Rose Garden yet!

A Pasta Idea

Posted by terrepruitt on October 10, 2022

This is not a recipe at all . . . it is more of an idea. The other night I was trying to decide on a side to eat with our ground turkey (with mushrooms) and I decided to go with pasta since I didn’t want to turn on the stove AND the oven. Then I saw that I needed to use some Roma tomatoes that were going to start to go bad so I thought I would just add them to my husband’s ground turkey . . . I am not a fan of cooked tomatoes, but I thought he would enjoy it. But when I looked at the tomatoes I decided I need to use all three and not just one so then I thought, well, I will just throw them in the pasta after it has cooked and mix it up with a bit of cheese. Then I thought, I could just slice them and put them on top. Then I thought I could layer the mozzarella. Then I thought . . . dang, I could just turn it into a “bruschetta type” pasta and add basil and balsamic.

I have a recipe for Bruschetta Pasta and I love it, but it is more involved. This was just me putting some sliced tomatoes on the pasta . . . it was really good.

I cooked the pasta and put it on the plate, sprinkled with garlic powder and shredded mozzarella, then put the sliced tomatoes on top of the pasta, a little more cheese, a sprinkle of dried basil (fresh would have been awesome), and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.  Just an idea.  It was really good.  I loved it!

You Would Never Know

Posted by terrepruitt on October 7, 2022

By this photo you would never know how sweet this girl is.  Here she looks as if she is planning something not-so-nice for all of her “subjects” below.  She was really just up there minding her own business and then her mom starting shouting at her to get her to look at the camera.  Yeah, I would look like that too if someone kept yelling my name.

Here is our beautiful black girl, Teagan for today’s Friday Photo.
