A Dab of This and That Ramble......

 I am really slacking these days when it comes to posting. Just realized it has been 2 1/2 weeks since I last posted.  Would like to say it is because I have been busy and accomplished everything on my ongoing "list",  but that is not the case.  If anything - I am further behind - What is new?!?
********
Remember  this not so small on going project?
I think she started this project in Jan., 2014, then with other things going on, which included major floor damage from a water leak, it was put on the back burner. Well - She started the ball rolling again. I am pretty sure she did not do much cooking while the kitchen was looking like this.
A Country Kitchen in progress....
The other side of the kitchen done before flooring had to be replaced.
 *******
Anyone tried these?
I have not, however, daughter did, and said they were good. I  like a baked sweet potato with lots of butter, or casserole with a yummy, cinnamon crunch topping with pecans, but not a fan of sweet potato fries, so not sure if would like these or not.
*********
What is for dinner after a busy day?   Having a wiener roast, and toasting marshmallows over a fire pit seems the perfect thing to do.
She said the sound of the cicadas was the background music for the picnic.   I have heard them where I am, but so far not as loud as in many other areas.
*********
How to waste an afternoon?  Spend it on the phone with your internet support system, trying to get "them" to  straighten out a problem "they" created.  I have enough problems trying to do the simple things on a computer.  Sure don't need someone with an extremely heavy accent, on the other side of the world trying to convenience me to buy a very expensive package, blah, blah, blah.
********
Just one of those Dab of This and That Rambles.
Have an enjoyable, fun filled , and safe Holiday Weekend !!!!

I understand what you mean about being busy and not blogging so often. The sweet potato with pecans cassarole sounds good. I would like to see the recipe.

Oh, I love the color of the kitchen cabinets. Looks great! I didn't know Triscuit was making new flavors. I find those flavored items in any brand are usually not good and full of chemicals. I too get so frustrated when I paid for an internet support service only to have them try to sell me something every time I call for help....and get through the thick accent too! Regretting ever signing up. Have a great holiday weekend!

Love the color of your daughter's kitchen cabinets. Lookin' good! If I had a dollar for every minute spent on the phone trying to work out internet and other related problems, I'd have enough money to hire someone to do it all for me:-)

They must be gluten free with the brown rice flour! I have to tell my daughter about them. No cicadas here yet but I hear it's going to be quite a year for them. Happy 4th, Glenda!
