Cowboy Caviar

Well, I managed to get Avocado Chicken Salad made....and Cowboy Caviar made.... fruit salad will have to wait.

We're headed to the coast...a little town called Indianola that has a rich Texas history..It's now just a sleepy little fishing village after several hurricanes wiped it out...

We are going to a little fishing / bait stand that also attracts an evening crowd. Cool breeze coming off the bay, great scenery .... excellent music. If you're in the area and want to come kick back with us there's always room for RL friends.

What's Cowboy Caviar?

Here's the recipe. And I do mine very similar...and can't eat enough. It's an extremely addicting healthy food... :)

See you tomorrow!

Building a quilt

I love quilting. Not only can you create beautiful fiber art but you also create something that is useful and beautiful..for years to come.

This is a crazy quilt design I just started.

Another coop

Excited simply because it is Wednesday! Weekend ahead!

John is headed to El Campos this morning to fetch another large coop someone made and is selling cheap. It will come in handy...

Chickens..as you may well know..are clique'ish. If they don't like a hen...they'll torture her...to death.

From the babies we bought at New Years..there are two hens that John rescued from certain death. Each are in their own smaller pens. We usually reserve these hutch type pens for chicks ... they are big enough to lay now but are in a relatively small space with no room to make a nesting place.

John tried to reintroduce them - but no luck... So when this other coop came up for sale... he knew it was perfect timing.

Hope I can muster up the energy to work in the food plot a little this evening..throat is better but energy level is in the dirt ...LOL!

Have a good day..we'll be checking in later...
