Dancing days

Miranda had her first ever dance recital.She danced to Lionel Ritchie's Ballerina Girl. Here she is with best freind Ally.


Here is her Heaven Hop tap costume


She was happy to get THREE bouquets of flowers!!

Home on the kitten ranch....

I had my third litter last month....They were the best. The kittens were so so cute. The cutest ever! And they were unbelievably playful and friendly. They were all adopted quickly....

Here is the runt, Snapple, with his mom, Lacy.

 And here's Blizzard. He was my absolute favorite.
 Litte Toffee loved my shoes.
 And the only girl of the litter, Chachi. She was beautiful!!!
Like I say, the all got adopted. And i was kitten free...for a whole week. Now I have a litter whose mother was hit by a car. Neighbors saw the accident and noticed the baby kittens nearby. One kitten died, the others are with me. They seemed shy at first, but are coming along nicely. I was just up there playing with them. They aren't available for adoption just yet...i was waiting a few days to gauge them and see how they do and if they'd make good pets. I think they would. I will post pics of Timmy, Billy and Creamsicle as soon as I find that darned camera!!!

Long time, still cooking

Long time since my last post. I have been having mucho problems with my computer. You know what the culprit was? Dust. I took apart the tower and used air spray and sprayed the crap out of it. Tons of dust flew everywhere. And my computer has worked ever since. Marvelous!!

I wanted to share this weeks cooking adventures WITH pictures, but my camera seems to have dissappeared. Lovely. Love how my children take off with my 800 dollar camera. Well, anyway, I was in a summer mood this week. I made ...

a new potato salad recipe that was more healthy. Nobody cared for it. It's okay. I won't make it again.

corn salad. It was okay. I would rather have plain corn.

citurs salmon...not great. But the salmon was not the freshest.

rice salad...kids did not like. It's okay.

broiled steak....the steak was easy, and it's a hit. I will make this easy steak again. I don't cook steak often, but this was delicious and simple.

BROILED STEAK

Heat broiler with rack in top position. Place steaks on baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Broil till done. Let rest about five minutes before cutting.

And the perfect sides?? Texas toast and watermelon slices. Perfect summer meal.

Pictures will arrive when i see my camera again.!!!

Tomorrow i am cooking more fish, and a canteloupe salad. I am very excited about that salad. I love summer produce.
