    Senior & Not So Senior Discounts

    Senior & Not So Senior Discounts ****Updated**** In this day and age when the price of EVERYTHING seems to be on the rise, it’s always nice to be able to get a little bit of a break. As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy’s recently, I heard him ask for his senior discount. The girl at the register apologized and charged him less. When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me that seniors over age 55 …get 10% off everything on the menu, every day. (But you need to ASK for your senior discount.) This incident prompted me to do some…

    Simple Homemade Tortillas These tortillas come together so quickly and easily that you will be wondering why you ever bought them from the store. We were just talking the other day about how Aileen’s family goes through Tortillas like crazy which made me think…. “Why are we buying these things? They can’t be THAT hard to make.” We are both all for being able to make something that doesn’t have all the chemicals “unpronounceable ingredients” in it. Here is a recipe for flour tortillas that I found originally at Jazibe’s Recipes. Easy…easy…easy! These are not very flexible when cool so try to warm them before using them. makes about 35…

    Homemade Turkey Pot Pie

    Homemade Turkey Pot Pie Hey Y’all!! Here it is, the Home Made Turkey Pot Pie Recipe!! Well, it took me a bit to get this blog post out as things around here have been rather hectic these past couple of days. Now I want to say that there are two ways to do this. You can pick your vegetables from your garden and cut them up to use, which is fantastic. Or, you can grab a bag of frozen “mixed vegetables” from your local grocery store and use those. Both work just as well and we are well aware that there are those of you that work or don’t have…

    Creamy Coconut Custard Pie

    This Creamy Coconut Custard Pie is the only pie you will ever need and it makes its own crust! I have a confession to make, I hate making pie crust!! I just never feel like my pie crust comes out good, even though I have been told it is delicious (Ok, I am kind of a perfectionist). That being said, Coconut Cream Pie is one of my absolute favorites. When I originally came across this recipe I just HAD to try it as it makes its own crust… magically!! Then I realized it was a Custard pie, well I had no choice but to make it. Coconut, Custard, and a…

    Proper Southern Manners Part 10 – (Telephone Manners)

    This is Part 10 of the Proper Southern Manners Series. In this part we will be covering Telephone Manners and Etiquette. This is a great tool to use with your children when teaching them proper manners and etiquette while using the phone. Have you ever phoned someone only to have one of their children answer and you hear… “Yeah?” or “Yo” or “What’s up?” As we have spoken about previously, first impressions are huge and you only get one chance. Many times the phone call IS the first impression. My EX husband, El Conquistador, has a real pet peeve with people that do not use the words “can” and “may”…

    Proper Southern Manners Part 9 – (Table Manners)

    As we have explained to our children, table manners are essential!! To get them to understand we spoke with them about going on dates (the opposite sex when speaking to teenagers is always a good way to get them to pay attention LOL).  Good table manners are something that will be important and carry through all our lives including dinners with family, going on dates and impressing that your man or woman you are out with, dinner parties as well as business dinners. Of course as we have pointed out throughout the Proper Southern Manners series, this is by no means all inclusive. It does, however, give us a starting…
