HELLO fall cooking and football........this past Saturday it rained "cats and dogs" all day long. Hubby was so glad that it was the beginning day of college football and he kept himself busy watching it pretty much all day long. I decided it was a good day for cooking so I threw together a pot of pintos with lots of seasonings, then added cooked ground sausage and a little rice. I made a pan of cornbread and it was the perfect dinner. This is my version of Red Beans and Rice, a good Cajun dish, but I always use pintos instead of red beans and I use ground sausage instead of link sausage. But, either way it is good! And, our Tigers win was "the icing on the cake."
HELLO hunting season........yes, hunting season is just around the corner and Hubby says that preparing for "the hunt" is almost as much fun as "the hunt." Tommy is a BIG deer hunter and has over 50 years of experience. He knows the woods and the habits of deer like the back of his hand. No joke, he's probably one of the best hunters in "these here parts." And, he's patient and that's a trait that a good hunter has to possess. Anyway, I went with him this weekend and watched while he cleared out an area he'll be hunting. I just cannot see sitting in a stand , watching and waiting for just the "right one" to come out, and being still and quiet as enjoyable. But, hey, different strokes for different folks. And, he loves it and that's really all that matters!
