Yesterday was a big day, my birthday I am the wonder 53 years of age and proud of it!
Hubby took me for a ride for the birthday and it was a beautiful day high up in the coast range where most do not get to see.....
thought I would share a couple of pictures of the coast mountains on highway 26
These were caught in the Columbia river! yum! were they great grilled with a seasoning I made up to put on them!
My son's holly terror! yes he is I came home yesterday to find all my phone books tore up! Bucky must have thought it would make a neat birthday present for me!

I did have a butter milk pancake mix and began to think I bet I could make muffins the dough would rise well with out the soda or powder.

so this is what you will need:
2 cans of Garlic fire roasted chopped tomatoes
1 can of black beans
1 can of corn
1/2 cup of chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup of sliced Mango frozen Mango works the best
1 1/2 cups of Cilantro
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp of Cayenne pepper
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl starting first with the tomatoes and adding the peppers last mix well do not drain any of the canned items. You can make this hotter by adding more Cayenne pepper or a Jalapeno pepper sliced up! You can also add different kinds of beans along such as white beans or pinto beans. You can freeze it also up to 2 weeks in a freezer just place into a freezer container and thaw when you are ready to use it. This is what I do because this recipe makes quite a lot so I freeze about half and put the rest into a container in the refrigerator.
I love it because its an easy way to get some yummy salsa quick!

So in the mean time I did this goofy video of my Pot Pie! and I played around with photo or video add ins's it turned out a bit fuzzy but thought I would share it anyway.
I plan to share some new ideas in crafting, quilting one my favorite easy stew casserole's and lots more!

Well I am back at the sewing machine and I thought it was about time to make some froggy's. This is Curd and Bletch and they are 10 inch small frogs from cotton quilting fabrics.
The pattern is a free pattern from Judi's Dolls http://judisdolls.com/index.html
I have make the frogs a bit different from the instructions, I am using the quilting fabrics, black beads, ribbon and buttons to make frogs.
I love frogs! and where I am located I get to hear the tree frogs sing from Feb-June and I have not done any frogs up so here is my first attempt for croaking up some ideas for frogs!
