Currently – December 2019

Currently – December 2019

It’s time for CURRENTLY!  Anne at In Residence supplies five prompts, and we all share what we’re CURRENTLY up to based on those prompts!  This month we have:  wrapping, baking, lighting, sending, and enjoying.  Here we go! I am CURRENTLY… wrapping:  my brain around the fact that December is here.  I’m certainly not wrapping gifts because I’ve barely begun my shopping!  WHAT?!?  I almost ALWAYS make a point of doing all my gift buying before Thanksgiving.  Not this year! baking: …

Pumpkin Chili! Yes, Really!

Pumpkin Chili! Yes, Really!

YOU GUYS!!!  Yesterday I promised you a recipe for chili with a surprise twist, and this is it!  PUMPKIN CHILI!!!  I would never ever have thought pumpkin and chili in the same recipe would work, BUT the amazing Bri McKoy is the one who created it and shared it, and I trust Bri completely! Here’s the thing, this chili is packed with flavor, and/but the pumpkin plays nicely with all the other ingredients and doesn’t scream its presence.  Really! My…

Autumn Adventures 2019

Autumn Adventures 2019

What happened to Summer Adventures, you ask?  Heat.  Heat happened!  It’s just too hot here in Coastal Georgia to do much.  Also, since we made our big anniversary trip to England and Scotland in May/June, we stayed pretty close to home this summer.  Oh, and I had foot surgery.  (More on that in a minute.) Then autumn started, and all our attention was focused on our son’s wedding!  HOORAY!!!  It was lovely and beautiful and amazing!  Two weeks after that…

Currently: The Hurricane Dorian Edition

Currently: The Hurricane Dorian Edition

Note:  I wrote this over the last few days as we were waiting (and waiting) for Hurricane Dorian to approach the Georgia coast.  I’m VERY happy to report that we saw very little of Dorian in our area, and all is well here.  I’m currently (HA! but seriously) praying for the Carolinas who are getting roughed up by Dorian as we speak and for those brave, exhausted souls in the Bahamas. That said, let’s get to the actual post! Hello…

Currently – August 2019

I totally missed last month’s Currently link up. I was going to do a UK Vacay Edition and might still backtrack and do it.  For right now though, I’ll play along with this month’s prompts from Anne at In Residence. I am CURRENTLY… ordering:  espresso powder.  I’ve been wanting some for months now and finally ordered it.  Now I just need to bake with it!  Hmmmm.  Any suggestions for a chocolate recipe that can be amped up with espresso powder?…

UK Vacay – The Food!

UK Vacay – The Food!

Today I want to share some of my favorite meals from our trip to England and Scotland.  Poor England has a bad reputation for food, but we really do like most of it.  We’re all about pub grub! Speaking of pub grub, fish and chips is always a good go-to. Jacket potatoes (baked potatoes) are also a reliable choice. Let’s go ahead and address the haggis issue!  I decided that I really couldn’t spend a week in Scotland and not…

CharcuterWHAT?!?

CharcuterWHAT?!?

You guys.  Have you discovered the magic of charcuterie boards yet?!?  My first charcuterie experience was at Sweet Grass Dairy‘s Cheese Shop in Thomasville, Georgia.  I was smitten.  Cheeses.  Jams.  Pickles.  Nuts.  Oh, man! Lately I’ve started creating my own charcuterie boards for my evening meals on days when I’m hungry, don’t want to cook, and want to keep things super simple.  I use a small bamboo cutting board, and I add berries, a few pieces of whatever cheeses I…

This month’s CURRENTLY prompts are:  admiring, playing, borrowing, remembering, and finishing.  Right now I am CURRENTLY… admiring:  all things green!  Gene and I went camping last weekend, and I just could NOT get over all the lush greenness everywhere!  I mean, LOOK at this!   And these green sneakers too!  I’ve been admiring them for weeks now!     playing:  The Story of My Life: Lea Salonga Live from Manila.  As I told you guys earlier, we saw Lea in…

Voilà! The Good List – April 2019

Voilà! The Good List – April 2019

All of these things are rocking my world right now, and I can’t wait to tell you about them! Did you know Steven Curtis Chapman has a BLUEGRASS album?!?  And it’s GOOD!  I’ve played it on repeat this week.  Some of the tracks are his earlier works that he’s spun in a bluegrass direction.  Some are old hymns.  Check out the new ending to “Cinderella!”  (Makes my heart so happy!)  My faves:  “My Redeemer Is Faithful and True” and “How…

Currently – April 2019

Each month I link up with Anne’s Currently challenge.  She provides five prompts, and participants share what they’re currently doing relative to those prompts.  I enjoy writing these, and I hope you enjoy reading them!  It’s fun to see how everyone interprets the prompts and replies to them. This month’s prompts are experiencing, appreciating, wish listing, posting, and considering.  I am CURRENTLY… experiencing spring in Georgia, both the good and the bad of it!  There’s nothing like all the shades…
