RECIPES AND MONKEY GRASS
Blog post from July 4, 2017
A little secret about me…I love to re-live the moments when I have successfully poked fun at Cowboy. But I don’t love the moments where he “one ups” me…
For those of you that know me, know that I am not a chef. It has never been my claim to fame nor will it ever be.
When I first moved to Pidcoke my sweet neighbor, Lori, brought me a cookbook and she said to me “from what I hear, you’re gonna need this”. Apparently Cowboy had been blabbing his mouth about my limited cooking skills.
I can cook seven things…and only seven things. How did I settle on that number? The way I figure it is that there are seven days in a week. My recipes are made from scratch and mouth watering but there are only seven of them. So don’t act surprised if you come for a visit an eighth time and you get a repeat. Cause it’s gonna happen.
After much resistance on my end, I decided that Cowboy needs a little more variation when it comes to what he puts in his belly.
Something else you need to know about me is that I am not a gardener. Neither of my thumbs are green nor are any of my fingers. I kid you not y’all, I could kill a cactus. However, there is one thing that flourishes in my presence…monkey grass. Oh…I can also grows kids. Beautiful, kind, big hearted kids. A mom could go on forever and ever…sigh 💛
Last month I decided to be a little adventurous. My plan was to find a new recipe and surprise Cowboy at dinner as well as expand my horizon in the horticulture field and purchase a new plant.
Feeling pretty good about my purchases I made at the grocery store, I head home.
COWBOY: Need help unloading your car?
Me: That would be great. I’m excited because I bought a new plant and I’m trying a new recipe tonight.
COWBOY: (Chuckling) This could get interesting. Did you say that you bought a plant? I thought you only shopped at Lowe’s for plants so you can take them back after you kill them. And, what is your backup plan for dinner?
ME: Well aren’t you just full of positivity.
ME: How did you like the new recipe?
COWBOY: You’re still at number seven but keep trying.
There he goes again…”one upping” me.
’til next Sunday y’all- Tammy💋
