Happy Throw Back Thursday...
1989 my cowboy in his new boots!

You know all of us who have AOL and had to take the new version AOL Gold are generally very irritated with what they have done to AOL. All the changes are not good. So many glitches. Now, DirecTV has done the same thing.

As of Tuesday they have changed their set up. Good grief. None of the new techies know what the heqq they are doing!!! Now we have another "learning process" on how to work the danged TV!!!

Here are some interesting road signs....

Now these sound delish!
Cajun Parmesan Potatos

  • 3 lbs. russet potatoes
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided (I use Kraft grated)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup water
Slow Cooker Size:
  • 5 quart or larger
  1. Wash and dry the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into wedges. My potatoes were on the small size, I cut them into eighths. If your potatoes are very large, you may need to cut them into smaller pieces.
  2. Mix the seasonings in a small bowl, mix. Pour the seasonings, olive oil, and half of the cheese on top of the potatoes. Stir.
  3. Sprinkle over the remaining Parmesan cheese and pour the water in with the potatoes.
  4. Cover and cook on high for 4.5 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

A burrito is a heavy tortilla wrapped around meat, cheese, tomato, rice, beans, vegetables, and sauces.  Burritos can be filled with ground beef, shredded chicken, shredded beef or shredded pork.  Bean choices often include black, red, whole or refried beans.  Vegetables can be grilled or fresh.  Cumin, chili powder and oregano are typical spices that are used to give the burritos an authentic Mexican flavor.  Chimichangas are burritos that have been deep fried.
  The word burrito first appeared in the Dictionary of Mexicanisms in 1895.  It is the term used in the Guanajuato region and means little donkey in Spanish.  It is possible that it stems from the appearance of the packs and bedrolls donkeys used to carry.  In other regions of Mexico, similar types of food are known as flauta.
The burrito was introduced in the United States in the 1930’s at the El Cholo Spanish Café in Los Angeles.
