Books. Reading. Trying to be more determined in my day/week to read and finish books on my “reading list”.
Three I HIGHLY recommend!
First, I’m just finishing “Tom’s Lists: 50 Commandments to Transform Your Life”…wow is it a great read. Seriously READ this book, it’s life changing..it’s funny, it’s serious, it’s soul searching..a great author!
Third, “More Tears to Cry” – A True Story of the lives of females in Saudi Arabia. If you have read the Princess Trilogy (all 3 are great reads), this is sort of a continuing story. Chilling. Jean Sasson is an awesome author!
When we were in Colorado my daughter-in-law, Sherry, served a dish during dinner that we loved! I’m sharing her recipe.
Texas Caviar! (or Black Eyed Pea Salad)
3 or 4 cans of black eyed peas
onion (sweet or green onion)
jalepeno pepper (remove seeds and skin with a spoon)
Rinse and drain black eye peas. Dice all vegetables and combine with the black eyed peas. Add approx 1 cups of dressing or less if you prefer.
Note: others have replaced 1 of the cans of black eye peas with white corn and/or pinto beans. The recipe above is wonderful as is! Others have also deemed this recipe as “addicting”…we agree. It’s YUMMY!!!
Oh if you check out my links at the top of my blog…my daughter Sarah now has a blog, as does Wayne :).
Our love story that began in 1974 when my husband and I married, a love story that still continues! It grew to include 3 children, a son-in-law, daughter-in-law, and 6 grand children. We are thankful each and every day for the blessings we have experienced. A life we relish, we have grown through it’s hardships, and times of pain, and seek the sweetness of life. We love our children, our grandchildren, laughter, long walks, chatting over coffee, breakfast out, early mornings, sunrises and sunsets, roaring camp fires, traveling, board games and cards, watching movies, remodeling, working in the yard, sitting on the deck sipping fresh brewed ice tea with a splash of lemon. We love laughter, sarcasm, jokes, politics, learning, reading. Always pursuing and seeking, spiritual truth, knowledge, and growth through Christ.
