when I featured him,I could not

find this picture.Isn't he the

Handsomest little thing?And that


Well,I found it,now you've got to

see it.Of course this was several

years ago back when the sugar just

dripped off his little neck.I do hope

your families talk like that or you'll

think I'm loco,huh?

Look at those tiny little hands.They

truly do grow up so fast.

Now it's time for Foodie Friday hosted

Saltgrass Steakhouse .It was delicious.

But the bread.Oh my goodness the bread.

All the nicer restraunts have wonderful


But this is wonderful on top of wonderful.

I don't eat much.Trust me.I always have a

doggie bag with lunch the next day in it.

Well,I ate


of my salad and steak and potato,but

....I ate,and ate,

'and ate the bread.James can eat.man

can the man

eat.We ate two loaves.Of course,they

are tiny.And took two home with us.

I figured they would protect the recipe

with guns,guard,and a six inch vault.Nope

I googled it,got it.That easy.

It's been on my mind.Can't wait any longer.

Let's go to the store.

Now,I'll tell you the rest of the story.

How observant are you?Did you notice
the beer is different?This is Shiner bock 100.
All they had and this was the "big'
grocery store was 12 bottles.
I figured I night use 2,maybe 3.How
different could the beer really be?
It is quite Different.This on is more
molassesy.If there's such a word.
But it too is delicious.But
I do wish I had gone ahead and gotten
the other.Next time..

Saltgrass Steakhouse Shiner Bock Beer Bread1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups Shiner Bock Beer (flat)2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour2 teaspoons dry active yeast1/4 cup warm water ( not hot )1/2 teaspoon salt1/4 cup honey1/4 cup vegetable oil1 1/2 cups all-purpose flourDissolve yeast in warm water in a large mixing bowl. Add honey and stir. Mix in wheat flour, salt and all- purpose flour in bowl. Stir in oil and slowly add flat beer. Mix all ingredients together. Place dough on a floured surface and knead for at least 10 to 15 minutes. The dough may need a little more flour added to it if becomes too sticky. The finished dough will feel smooth and spongy and will not stick to your hands.Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic until it doubles in size. Do not place dough in a draft or in an overheated area. The dough should be left to rise at room temperature.When dough has doubled, punch down in the middle and let rest for 5 minutes.Divide dough into four equal parts and shape into round loaves. Place loaves on a lightly oiled cookie sheet. Score twice on top of each loaf with a knife two inches apart and about 2 1/2 inches long. Cover loosely with plastic wrap until the loaves have doubled in size. Place in a preheated 350 degree F oven, and bake for about 30 minutes.Yields 6 servings.

I'm quiteing down.

Hello everyone.Thank you for
dropping by.I am going to
not post as nuch as I have
been.I will be around most
Alot of you know me from
Rate My Space and remember.
I have copd.Which is "Chronic
Obstructive Pulmonary
Disease."It just means my lung
are collapsing.They are basically shot.
And yes,I smoked .But mainly I was
a manicurist for 25 years and inhaled
the chemicals and dust from them.
Those of you who knew me before
know I was very sick and I got better.
My Dr.gave me a year to live a year ago.
I am still here.She also said,some that
she tells that live 1-3 yrs.
She has found a new procedure in
St.Louis she is trying to get me into
now.This can give me up to 5 yrs.
They work with my own lungs.Alot
less invasive than a lung transplant.A
lung transplant waiting list is 3 yrs,or l
I am on oxygen now.And NOW I am
so very much more comfortable.But
I tire so easy and I can't carry dishes
and such across the room.NOW that I am
a dishohlic.But my baby girl,Lucy
Jane(Debbie)ha will be coming to help
me out soon.We might just do one or two.
Meanwhile I can do WORDLESS
WEDNESDAY and as hard as it is to
find PINKS.I was overwhelmed with
requests to not quit doing PINK
SATURDAY.How cool is that?I was
impressed.But I will still be able to
do things that are strictly on the
This is why I have teased and said.I
"sneak out".It's because I really do.My Dr.
especially in the winter with flu everywhere
wants me to stay home.Most of the time I do.
But every once in a while a girls gotta do.....
And another mystery solved.This is why I
was painting and was going to wallpaper and
do all these things to my totally white house.
Physically I can no longer do it.But I can't inhale
the paint and stains.
I had one lady that just stayed on me on RMS.So
I told her I was sick.and she still kept harping.When
are you going to finish that bla,bla.I gave up...
So this is why .Again I will be around.I love Blogville.
I have made so many wonderful friendships here.
Most of us have been through so much.We now have
each other to lean on.
Thank you and God Bless.....

Thank you Ms.Diane for hosting today.
Lets just go down
her list for participants and see what
all the tresures everyone has found.Thank you.

My husband and I went to garage sales this
week-end.As we were headed down the driveway at
this one sale,we both were
headed to this.The lady had paid $50.00 last
year at First Monday.But she said she had moved
and it no longer fit her house.As you can see
it's not even dusty.I guessed she'd want $20.00
at least for it.I liked to have passed out
when she said$5.00.WOWOW.Yes,I did make one
last year myself.And I paid $10.00 for just
the ugly chair.This is unbeliveable.Mine is not
nearly as cute as this.And yes,James,I still need
the porch finished to put it on.My other one is
gracing the hall way.
We got several other things too.But I 'll
tell you all about them later.I have to tease some.....

I think she or he actually made the chair itself.
And most likely the birdhouse too.
Isn't the ribbon just precious?
Don't those flowers look like Spring?
Don't you just love it?Doesn't it look like happiness lives here?

Welcome,welcome.I'm so glad you have
dropped by.This is as we all know
PINK SATURDAY,where everybody is happy
and in there PINK.As always Pink Saturday
is hosted by Ms Beverly @
Today,I had to really scrap to find pink.
This maybe my last pink Saturday.Really,we've done
it all.Pink shoes,pink cars,I've even done gum!
Even my pic files are tired.I thought about pink
movies,there's only been three.Flowers?Beautiful,
but well.....And I'm afraid my googler is googled out too.
So today,this is the ones that were left behind.May
they go out with a big bang.I admit the collection
is definitely not like anyone Else's....
