Time Change

I always feel  a little cheated when time changes….and we lose one hour. I guess wait until spring and we get it back, but I am sleeping in tomorrow anyway.

I grew up on a dairy farm and we never got to sleep past 7 am. I couldn’t wait until I was grown so I could sleep as late as I wanted to..<grin> Isn’t life grand when your a child ?? If we knew then what we know now we would have never been is such a hurry to grow up.

I am posting another “healthy” recipe that we enjoy and I hope someone tries it (??) We have used this recipe a couple of times and will continue to make it. We found it to be very good. It is a side dish Here it is and I think it’s a keeper !!
