OK, so I couldn't make up my mind which one to cook...chili or gumbo...so I made them both! Took a little longer in the kitchen than I wanted, but they both turned out pretty tasty, if I may say so myself! Even got pictures to prove it. We've got this rule. Someone does the cooking, someone else does the clean-up...I couldn't do it to 'em. What a mess I always make when I cook. So, I cleaned up like a good girl.
I even got to have a visitor today! Gweny, the next door neighbor, dropped in. Yes folks, I actually have a witness. It was ME doing the cooking! On a more somber note, Gwen was telling me about the loss of her 22 year old nephew to the Dragon...cancer. So full of life, so short a time to live it. He was a beautiful child who will always be loved and remembered. These Angels bring so much love with them from Heaven...and the best part of it is, that they leave that love with us when they go home. We're never alone. Not for an instant...So here's my sending out lots of love and hugs and prayers to the family. Bless their hearts...
So, on that note, I'll leave you with a bit of useless information:
The term maverick came from Texas rancher Sam Maverick, who refused to brand his calves.
