I wonder, who wrote the book of Love?

Seems to me there is an oldie song to that title? You all know I am glued to the Oldie Stations (there are many) when doing housework or cooking, baking, creating, tweaking, eating, recipes and when home alone during the day! After a few hours I need quiet then. You ever do that? Sometimes I crack myself up laughing! You’d be doing exactly what I am if you were living in “my paradise”!!! Yes sir I believe that. Back to the issues at hand like where this husband of mine thinks he is taking me?! He is getting the biggest kick out of it too. Would it not be a hoot if I sent my oldest daughter (age 9 going on 21 y.o.) with him instead. Oh yes, I would too do that! Just because I can….Meanwhile Mom and Daddy are coming by for lunch today and I should get an up-date on Pepe for you all.

In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser. Have a great Day!

With lightning speed!

Greetings to everyone! I mean I was Mrs. Speedy this morning doing my errands and grocery shopping, Meat/Butcher Market, Seafood Market. I went much earlier this week to avoid running into people locally I know. Last week it slowed me down to a snail pace. I am use to flying through the stores. Getting the Specialty Markets done and getting home and putting the items away. All is accomplished now. I just made a new Smoothie and I am going to sit outside on the Lanai and sip away. It is another pretty day out, a little lower humidity, winds are about 12 mph from “My Ocean”. It is very pleasant out!

I hope you are having a good day! In closing, I wish you “Good Health”. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.

Another trip planned?!

Well for goodness sake this husband of mine is all together losing his ever loving mind. A trip again?! So, in my infinite wisdom I said where too? He chuckled and went on with his breakfast. Well really I thought as I finished up the children’s dishes and Daddy drove them on to school. My Father loves to take my family to school?! Okay, I am fine with that. Y’All I have done so much traveling in my life thus far I do not enjoy it as much as when I did not have children and with the Holidays and all my planning I do; he throws a curve ball each and every year. I think he enjoys that! He always says you work so hard each and every day with the home, gardens, cooking, domestic duties, blah, blah, blah yes, as a wife and part-time working mother I do this daily; it is not anything special it is life! I love every minute of it. I love my “paradise”!!!

In the meantime, I am tweaking some new recipes and posting them soon on TK. Mother is done with all the grandchildren’s costumes (finally). She is coming over for lunch today I’ll see what she knows about this next trip?! She probably won’t tell me she never does, she acts dumb. None-the-less on with the clipping of my herbs, picking some lettuce from my garden, carrots, potatoes, a few peppers and cleaning, rinsing and using them in cooking today. I had 3 limes, 2 lemons, 1 big fat grapefruit, 2 oranges and a small bunch of bananas. The yield today was plentiful. I love my gardens. Hey Sarah, of Sarah ‘n Spice I am so happy you now have your garden started! You’re going to love it!!!

In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.

It’s a new Day, a new week!

Hoping you each had a great weekend?!It is business as usual at my home. You guessed it… laundry piling up, changing bedding all that stuff. No, I really do not mind the housework; I am so use to doing it. The Ocean is calm and quiet. I see the Lifeguard Towers and their Umbrellas moving slightly with the Seabreeze. They are all in the color Red and easy to identify.

I have been cooking and tweaking some new recipes and posting them on Tasty Kitchen. Soon, I will begin the Christmas/Holiday recipes I want to share. It seems early to be talking about that but it really isn’t that far off is it? Yes, my favorite time of year is fast approaching. It is still quite warm here low 80’s and will stay this way for awhile yet! I have supper in the slow cooker a Pork Roast (pulled pork) for the Gang made it clear that is what they were hungry for. I can eat pulled pork (sandwich) anytime! Love it when it is so tender it falls apart. How about you? I will probably make a Cole slaw salad and some fresh fruit to go along with the Pork.

In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser. Pssst. Have a great Day!!!

Flip Flop Shopping!

Good morning everyone. Not that I need anymore flip flops my favorite Retail Store-Belks’ had a whopping good sale so Mom and I went over. She’s the sandal Queen I am the flip flop one! Mom found 6 pairs I found 11 pairs. We had fun and I am good to go. I am making lunch for us; then Mom is going over to my S-I-L to sew some costumes. I’ll probably take a swim then. Phew, this shopping is exhausting work, HeHe. How is your Thursday going? I am making a Beef Roast for supper tonight. The gang is hungry for homemade mashed potatoes. Soon I’ll be peeling away!!! All in a days work at my “paradise”.

In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.

Mustang Sally…

You better slow that Mustang down!!! A long line of Mustang’s this morning?! Not at all sure where they were headed (southbound) must be a rally somewhere nearby. I have a nice red convertible Mustang in our garage but NO I did not join in. Not a car show buff. I had shopping to do in the Family Toyota Van. Groceries, Seafood Market, Meat/Butcher Market, etc. It was fun seeing the different models and years though! The shopping is done. I am cooking and baking away. The herbs are clipped and houseplants are watered and happy! It is a pretty day out. “My Ocean” just as beautiful as ever, I never tire of the sights and sounds, smells! What are you all up to? Hoping your Hump Day goes well.

In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.

Live, Love, Laugh…

We are back from Church service and the gang tells me they are starving? I made breakfast at 7:00 a.m. for them. The service and Sunday School must have been terribly hard on them they are all giggles. I told them to (live) go swimming because I (loved) them, while I (Laughed) my way into the kitchen to prepare an early lunch. So I am cooking and baking.

An up-date on Pepe he will be discharged tomorrow before noon from the hospital. Jose the (Motel Manager) has found a sponsor for him to attend AA (it is a church member of Jose’s who has been sober 22+ years and is willing to help Pepe). I believe Jose will pick him up from the hospital and bring him back to the Motel. Daddy will keep me posted on his progress.

In closing I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser.
