NANO Recipes Project Update


I am coming OK with my personal recipe book ideas.I am converting large recipes into 2 serving meals (or meals that can be frozen).

Day 1: I tried to find BREAKFAST recipes.I also found many SMOOTHIE recipes.

Day 2: I researched SNACK ideas and recipes.

Day 3: I located different CHICKEN LEG and CHICKEN THIGH recipes.

Day 4: I found PEA recipes.

Day 5: I hope to find POTATO and SWEET POTATO recipes.

I still want to find GREEN BEAN recipes… CORN recipes … BLACK/ BROWN BEANS recipes… STEAK/ BURGER recipes and DESSERT recipes. If any of my online chefs have some more catagories for me to look at … PLEASE let me know.

I love SLOWCOOKER recipes, CASSEROLE recipes and a thing called DUMP recipes.

NANO Project #3


How many of you are trying the NANO (National Novel Writing Month) this year?

I decided to break mine apart into different writing projects.

My first project was to complete my personal CELEBRATION blogs for the year. That project has been completed and has been checked off the list.

Project number two was to bring back on-line my weekly flash fiction writing challenge: FLASH FICTION FOR THE PRACTICAL PRACTITIONER. I finished that project this weekend. (This project will go live the last week of Decemeber.)

My third writing project is to collect and print my own personal COOKBOOK. I hope to compile 100 recipes that I know and have tried often and I love for this project. I suspect it will take more than the month of November. I hope to have it ready for my own personal Christmas present by December 25th!

We will see?

National Cookbook Month

Walmart.com

During the month of October I will be purposefully trying to celebrate MORE OFTEN. I am a middle school teacher (or a former middle school teacher) and I would like to find something to celebrate (great-or-small) every single week. I still do.

This month I will be blogging about different ways you can celebrate EVERY DAY for the month of OCTOBER.

I will send the weekly list in advance … so you can PLAN to ENJOY THE CELEBRATIONS with me!


Today’s Celebration

National Cookbook Month

Today is a day that I will enjoy.

For the last two years I have been trying to become a better cook.

I have spent hours online searching for new recipes that might have a different way to prepare/cook/season vegetables.

I grew up in a meat-and-potatoes house. Not much had changed for 60 years.

Now, I am trying-to-try a few new things.

Happy Celebration!

I could hardly sleep last night…

Dreams of spaghetti and meatball meals (yesterday)… and now today… CUPCAKES.

I am so glad Walmart opens early.

Is it OK to have cupcakes for breakfast?

Happy Celebration!

Today’s Celebration

National Cake Decorating Day

One of my favorite desserts…. CUPCAKES!

I freely acknowledge, I must be one of the densest people on the face of the earth.

I only decorate birthday cupcakes, and I used to find that difficult.

I would pinch-drop my sprinkles on my cupcakes… and I would have a mess!

Now with these two pictures… DUH!


Bake yourself a few cupcakes today… and add some sprinkles!

Happy Celebration!

A fun new recipe book.

I was able to find Chocolate Peanut Puppy Chow – which sounds tasty. I also found an assortment off ‘granola’ bar recipes.

I am looking forward to trying them.

COOKING MADE EASY: 9



While stumbling through Google the other day, I fell upon these videos.

I am NOT a connoisseur-type chef. My specialties are peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, Deli meats, and microwavables.

I do have a crock pot, and I have a few recipes that I have been successful at preparing.

The Simplified Saver Cooking Blog looked not only easy to do, but they looked very tasty.



Here’s the catch… I hate eating things when I don’t know ahead of time what they taste like. (Yes, I’m a baby. … I’ve heard it all before. … Water off a duck’s back.)

If, during quarantine, any one you have the ingredients available, and are so inclined, to test out a few of these delicious-looking treats, drop me a line.

I don’t think that I will attempt any of them until after quarantine.

New foods to me, stressful you see. (You thought I was a baby. … Really, I’m like a wise, but ever-compassionate Yoda.)


FYI: I’ll probably drop one of these each week, just seeking a helpful connoisseur.)
