George Cooling off

Our furry friends have a hard time cooling off when it is warm outside, so George stretches out on the lawn. One of his favorite places.

My Pineapple Sage

I am enjoying my Pineapple Sage, but the leaves at the bottom of my plant keep turning yellow and falling off, or come off easily. Moved it to get more sun today.

Want it to last till Christmas time, since I will get beautiful red blossoms which will draw Hummingbirds.

If anyone knows why the leaves get yellow, please let me know.

"It is almost a miracle that modern teaching methods have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for what this delicate little planet needs more than anything, besides stimulation, is freedom."

George Kicking Back

I guess I can say that King George rules our house. He is an old man that requires high maintenance, but we do not mind. We enjoy each and every day with him. After all, he has given so much to us over the past 17 plus years. A well deserved rest after watching the cat peeking through our fence shown in my Post below.

George and our Neighbors Peeking Cat

I enjoyed watching and photographing George today, as he watched the next door neighbors cat through the knothole in our fence. He has not been moving around too much and not interested in much, but this cat had him up, moving around, watching and oh so curious.

And My Blog Becomes A Bit More Diverse

I was sitting on the edge of my pool as I started my therapy on my foot. I looked to the sky and it was unbelievable. I knew this needed to be a post to my Blog to share with all. I hope you enjoy what I saw as much as I did.

Week 2 Recipe Challenge Chicken Tostadas

The photos that I have posted show all of my ingredients. Make the rice separately per the instructions, in the pot that you will mix everything in. Next, use 2/3 of the taco mix and put it in a skillet with the amount of water on the package, adding your chicken. Saute this mixture for about 10 minutes. We have been cooking a whole chicken, and using most of the breast meat for this recipe, cut up small. When the rice is done, add the chicken mixture, beans (drained), 2 tomatoes (skinned and cut to your liking). Mix all together and let simmer till it is all warmed up. You can add cheese to your liking at this time or wait till you build your Tostada.
Spin a taco size corn tortilla in a very warm pan top and bottom (a few seconds each side) just to warm it up. Put tortilla on plate (I use a paper plate) then mixture to cover the tortilla, then cheese to cover the first layer, then another tortilla, then mixture to cover the tortilla, then cheese to cover the mixture. The rest is up to you. I spread sour cream across the top, and have used avocado on it also. You can also use onion in the mixture that you make. ENJOY!!!

Week 1 Recipe Challenge (catching up)

I am starting my part of the recipe challenge on a blog that I follow created by Carol, called Cocoon.
I will attempt to post a new recipe each week. This is week 4, so I have some definite catching up to do.

This is a favorite recipe of mine and of course the chicken is loved by George. Make your favorite Pasta Roni (my photo shows my favorite), cook a boneless skinless chicken breast (we barbeque it with a little garlic powder). Cut up the Chicken, giving George some on his own plate, then put the rest it in a bowl. Top with as many noodles as you like, and cut it all up in the bowl. You can also make some garlic toast on the side or have some fresh french bread. A Delicious Dinner.
