SEE ALERT AD UPDATE AT BOTTOM>>I have two grown middle age children one son and one daughter my daughter lives in Iowa, I miss her dearly but she rarely if ever comes to visit. wrapped up in her world . My son travels and is not home much. have 2 grandkids that live nearby but don't see them as often as we would like, they are now teenagers and never come over always on their cellphones or Ipod have been married for 49 years! We used to live up by Hayward Wi for over 25years and miss the great summers, falls blue lakes, and all the woods but not the snowy icy winters,I hate the long hot, humid summers and falls here in the south , don't cool off much until just before Christmas. My ideal liiving arrangements would be living up north from mid april till Dec1. and then live south from Dec till April I used to laugh at the snowbirds,now I want to be one .. I love to garden both flowers and vegatables We had a small apple orchard up in Wisconsin where we lived on a small 40 acre farm right outside town complete with a huge machine shed and big silo had to tear the old barn down that was so beautiful with gentle rolling hills , Iused to grow these humongous pumpkins and tomatoes there and miss my farm fresh pies and fresh eating apples picked fresh from the 5 apple trees , had bushels and bushels never had a worm in any of them either, never even sprayed them , used to put a sign out by the road that read "FREE apples".. only bad thing was they attracted lots of wasps! ...My pet peeve is anyone who does not respect and is anyone who is unkind to animals I just can not tolerate cruelty especailly to a living creature that cannot fight back or speak up for itself .. My other pet peeve are drivers driving while talking on their cell phones I have had some very close calls because of this and have seen accidents with cell phones being the cause There should be stricter enforcements and penalities on these issues OK done ranting now LOL Fall2012.ALERT ALERT we moved back to a small town in northern Wisconsin this spring! live on edge of town Has to sacrifice and practically give house away to do it but We did it Grandpa lives to fish and hunt and go for rides in the Blue Hills so beautiful had to leave grandkids and son back south which makes me very cery sad they were up this summr 4 a few days ..just me & grandpa now .
Italian foods ,ethnic foods, good homemade soups and stews, extra special desserts that tastes greatand look fantastic made with simple ingredients. main dish meals made with fresh ideas and easy to get ingredients don't like mexican pizza or mexican lasagna these are Italian dishes and have nothing to do with southwest cooking.Mexican cooking is entierely different and when these are combined it is not an Italian dish nor is it Mexican. I love to entertain and invite company over for BBQs and dinners I love animlas especially dogs and Iam an animal lover my favoritecookbboks are the old BettyCrocker(Red Pie cover) and some taste of home books I collect cookbooks I have cookboooks dating back from 1878 have a wall of cookbooks of all kinds I read them like novelsand love to discuss and tread recipes.. My huuby and i love to go to Corinth to our favorite resturant New China Buffet it is great always at least 4 soups and 5 or 6 different kinds of shrimp We also love to travel with our beloved dogs one is 13 and she is starting to really slow down (we have 2) if we can afford it we love to travel but gas is just so high.. I make fantastic meatballs , lasagna meatlaof, cobblers BBQ pork and homemade pizzas The secret? i cook with passion!
