Here she is not quite 2 months old riding with her Dad on his mule. She LOVED riding on the mule!

She loved sleeping on Jerry's little pillow on his side of the bed!

Ok, here's an easy peezy St. Pat's cookie ...
1 pouch (1#15oz) Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
½ cup softened butter
1 egg
1 T. all purpose flour
green food color
Betty Crocker green sugar


Oven 375º. In med bowl stir cookie mix, butter, egg, and flour. Roll dough by teaspoonfuls into 90 balls. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Roll balls in green sugar. For each cookie gently press 4 sugared balls together on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, until edges lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

If you have not seen this video "Paper is not dead" it. Hilarious!

As I said yesterday, Adele says she makes her corned beef with Guinness..... so I went shopping and got a corned beef, Guinness, potatoes, flat leaf parsley, cabbage, and bacon. Cooking Sunday! Then I saw this.... Will have to make it soon.

Vicky has made this drool starting beef pie.... with Guinness and beef, carrots, celery, mushrooms, cream, and Parmesan, and topped with pastry.

Finished my taxes yesterday. YEAH! Got them mailed off. E-filing the state costs $19.99~! No thank you. I put it in an envelope and mailed it....requesting a check mailed back to me! None of this "deposit to your account" stuff. I want to see and hold the check! (I know, I'm weird.) Then to Safeway where at the end of the deal, I was to get $40 back and I was asleep as well as Becky the checker...she gave me 4 $5's and I walked out. Didn't even realize it until I got home! Dummy me. So called the store and need to come in with my receipt. Hmmmm.... hope this works out. She should have been $20 over in her drawer. We'll see if I'm believable. She should remember... we chatted and she asked if "fives ok?". Sigh......

My DD (Daily Drivel) friend Judy down in So. Cal had emergency surgery the other night, a tear in her intestine. Not good. Prayers and thoughts to her. Then Trish, another DD girl, had her car hit and run. Thankfully she is ok. Scary California drivers!!! Big sigh of relief you were not hurt T!!


All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF! Ciao.
