This weekend feels like a holiday and even though it’s Cinco Di Mayo, it feels like Memorial Day. Today my husband and I cooked up a tasty home cooked meal. Hubby smoked the Ribs and corn. I made deviled eggs the evening before, and baked up some cornbread and a delicious Lemon Pound Cake for our dessert. I haven’t mastered potato or macaroni salad so they are store bought. But boy oh boy was this a delicious home cooked meal!

Attempting to grow a flower pot garden for the second time in my lifetime. In all honesty, I bought the plants as sprouts, and all I had to do was keep them living. Apparently I planted too early. We had two hard freezes after my planting. I moved all the pots I could indoors, and covered the plants with plastic outdoors. Before moving indoors my strawberry plant was flowering and had a red berry. I had a nice looking bell and a jalapeño plant, the bell pepper and the basil died along with the strawberry plant. The jalapeño plant lost its leaves but still has a green stem co ing out of dirt, maybe I can revive it. The Romaine, tomato, chives, oregano, cilantro, and marigolds are doing good. I feel like I’m barely hanging on to my lavender, and petunias. I attempted to start carrots and some basil from seeds, they were sprouting and outgrowing the container, so I took off the lid, and they all died.
Today I enjoyed a turkey sandwich with Romaine lettuce straight from my garden! It is so rewarding actually getting to eat what you have grown! Stay tuned for more updates in the months to come!

My kitchen isn’t big enough to store all of these coffee pots. Hubby bought the Ninja in October last year. I kept trying to tell hubby we needed to try the coffee pot cleaner, instead of vinegar. Vinegar wasn’t working, and three pots with the same issue, what is the likelihood of that? Your cup fills to maybe 2 Oz of coffee, when you are trying to get any of the choices. The Ninja cleaning light would come on constantly we would clean it, and a few days later, same thing. Apparently the NINJA has had this manufacturers defect for about 2 years and refuse to recall the machine, they keep profiting off sales, seriously it does look, way cool! Lol! I didn’t want it either I knew I had the Keurig from the RV, and The Cuisanart, name brand machines that needed to run some other tests before I gave up on them. Over the weekend. We did just that. We bought two jugs of the $13. Coffee pot cleaner. It says use one bottle, we tried that in all machines. The NINJA did its usual 2 oz. filling, the Keurig said it’s needs water, and the Cuisanart said it also needs water. Ugh! So we reused the mix and put both bottles through all machines. Repeatedly until one seemed to show us some results. Using a glass measuring mixing bowl with ozs., the Cuisanart started giving the exact amounts we were asking for. Today my morning cup of joe is brought to you by Cuisanart. ;)
