Turkey Chili Boats

I discovered another yummy recipe from where else? 
Gina's Turkey Chili Stuffed Acorn Squash proves that comfort food can be healthy.
I made this exactly as her recipe read and wouldn't change a thing. 
The slightly spicy chili mixed with the super sweet squash is a tremendous match.
I added cheese to SPF and Hubby's and forgot the cilantro on all. 
Regardless, it is a winner!
Even if my dreary photos aren't.

Oh well.

The Girls and the Boys

Thanksgiving with  my family has been spent at my sister and brother in law's home and this year, we were all there.
That isn't always the case with college and jobs, but this year it was.
It dawned on me as I was planning on updating the photo with my dad, that we didn't have a picture of the three generations of ladies..
We do now.

As well as all of the menfolk.
I am a happy and blessed girl.

Pepe and the Men

Who knew that a grandfather surprising his two grandsons at the park in 1998 would spark photo ops for years to come.

Time Flies

This photo popped up on my Facebook Feed a few days ago.
 It was our Christmas card photo in 2005.
I still remember buying those shirts at the grocery store of all places. 
It was apropos since  I was working on our Christmas cards for this year. 
What a difference 12 years makes!

Peace and Quiet

Living off the main road as we do offers an abundance of peace and quiet.


Until you have a police chase, after dark, involving your driveway and for a moment you feel as though you are watching a scene from The Dukes of Hazzard from your family room window.
And then...peace and quiet again.
Not a peep in the paper, radio or police reports. 
Only a vague mention on FB of a chase.
It's a mystery.
LPP thinks we all imagined it.
Same dream X 3.
The tire tracks narrowly missing both our domestic and ag wells beg to differ.
Ahhhh, life in the country.

Now You Know

A question.
After lots of practice for a gymkhana,  
a visit from a sister who is the horse trailer whisperer
and an equine bath....
...what does one do when this happens when loading the trailer for a very early morning the following day?

 One sleeps in.
