Busy Weekend

It started Saturday morning at 6:00 am.  I was on kitchen staff at church making breakfast burritos for the woman’s conference the way we make them at the men’s monthly breakfasts.  Hey, women need burritos, too.  Luckily, I’m ¼ Mexican, so I know how to wrap a burrito. After getting […]

Meaty Meat Saturday

Every month my church, Calvary Bible Church of Burbank https://www.calvarybiblechurch.org/, holds a Men’s Breakfast.  This month, we had a Men’s Barbeque instead.

How Thymes Have changed

When Kris and I got married, cooking was kind of a chore.  We didn’t really mind it, but it wasn’t particularly exciting.  We had our favorite dishes, and we would say we should try making something new, but we rarely did. Then we moved from an apartment with a small […]

Anniversary on a Budget

Yesterday was our 33rd wedding anniversary.  In past years we’ve taken a week-long trip to Baycon or Fanime in San Jose, then a stop in SLO (San Luis Obispo).  Or a couple of times just a weekend in SLO. This year, our budget being tighter, we stayed in town, but […]

My Leafy Babies!

  Back in May of last year, I had some disappointing jalapenos.  First, we went to Topper’s Pizza (my favorite pizza place) and ordered a pizza with jalapenos on it.  The jalapenos were disappointingly not hot.  Then I made a plate of nachos at home and added jalapenos to my […]
