Turkey Quesadillas and Mexican Mashed Potatoes

The Saturday after Thanksgiving and I still had a fridge full of leftovers.  We where tired of leftovers! I got creative and made Turkey Quesadillas and Mexican Mashed Potatoes. I took a flour tortilla put it in a frying pan with a little vegetable oil.  I added diced leftover turkey, cheese and green chilies on…

Crockpot pork and apples

On a busy day, nothing any better than a easy meal.  Just two ingredients, pork and apple pie filling. Early in the morning, I put a pork roast in the crockpot and poured a can of apple pie filling over the top.  I let it cook on low for at least 8 hours. The pork…

Abandoned Buildings

I haven’t had much time lately to get out and take pictures.  So we have been doing what we call, “out the window photography.” I got some shots of abandoned buildings recently.  Thought I would share a few. Please follow me on Instagram @paulapc70 for more of my “out the car window photography.  

A beautiful Saturday Evening

Usually this time of year its getting cooler.  Not this beautiful, warm day in late October. We had a great time watching the clouds and the sunset. Take some time today and look around.  Beauty is all around you.   Follow me on Instagram:  @paulapc70    

Yep, that is an owl in a bucket.

Nothing any cuter than an owl in a bucket.  Well, except two baby owls in a bucket! We heard there was an owls nest in a local park.  We had to check it out.  Cuteness overload!  I guess the park put this large bucket in a tree hoping something would nest in it.  Sure enough owls moved…

My Favorite Christmas Songs

I was sitting here listening to Christmas music and thought I would make a list of my favorite Christmas songs.  If I found a link to a video for the song, I included that.  It was kind of fun to look back at old videos. Not in any particular order. Enjoy!  Merry Christmas!   Here comes…

Squirrel probs, again

Well, that didn’t take long.  Three weeks to be exact.  I got to enjoy my front porch pumpkins for a little while this year before the squirrels ate them.  Shellac does not work, at least for my hungry squirrels.   They even put pumpkins guts and parts in my chair.     Check out my…

Fall Décor and my squirrel dilemma

Fall is here and I love to decorate my front porch with mums and pumpkins every year.  For the last 4 or 5 years, we have had some hungry squirrels move in the hood.  They have plowed  right through my thoughtfully placed fall décor, leaving a mess and pumpkin guts everywhere for years. I have tried a…

Day Trippin’ -Antiquing

I love antiques.  We decided to take a drive to The Heart of Ohio Antique Center in Springfield, Ohio. http://www.heartofohioantiques.com The place was great!  Clean and well organized.  I wasn’t looking for anything in particular.  We just like to roam around and look. I do love Milk Glass and just recently started to collect Hens on…

Eagle watching

It was a good day to photograph the Eagles by the river.  We watched him take a bath and then just chill.

Thrifty Thursday – Longaberger Finds

I thought I would stop by the thrift store the other day.  I wasn’t really looking for anything, I just like to stop in every now and then to see what they have. My eyes quickly went to the large pumpkin basket.  The fabric looked really familiar.  I realized it was a larger version of my Longaberger basket…
