was able to get a 8:30 dental appointment, seems another crown came off.
Since my dentist is half way to Nashville and fortunate to have a driver we headed for Nashville.
(I no longer am comfortable driving the hour long drive in heavy traffic or the area's I liked to visit in years past) Not the Nashville I have known for almost 60 years, lived there for a while two different times
and liked it. Yesterday on the road viewing new buildings arising on every street, cranes high in the air,
traffic is horrible. Many high rise condo's being built
in past years. Every inch of land is being built on, new restaurants, shops on every corner, I have the thought
where are all of these people arriving from. I do know Nashville in the past has been an economical location
but not anymore. I believe many relocating from California, Foreign investors . Past homes
lived in prices have tripled and maybe more, taxes also.
Two small shops in a quiet area I wanted to visit and was pleased that I found what I was looking for
two large baskets to hold over 40 years of pictures, many past on to children and some now copied on my computer. Now images are down loaded from camera to computer - so easy and convenient.
Most of my pictures fit in these containers along with albums, some in another conainer also wanted a basket to place bydoor when family visits, most take their shoes off
T.J.Max never disappoints me and good prices.
It is so nice when my son visits and go to many of the newer eating places. Will have to wait until then.
While checking online yesterday saw a recipe for Corn Chowder and it reminded me of an old
recipe from my favorite Aunt Lucille, she past it on to me and noticed the recipe card dated 2003.
It is simmering on the stove with a few changes after reading the online recipe.
Lucille is where my Banana Bread recipe came from, enjoyed for years and my daughter's now bake.
Chopped potato, celery, onion, carrots are simmering
I reduce the recipe for me and enough for 2 days
when these are soft add a small can of drained cream corn
small can of regular corn that is drained
1 cup of milk
1 cup of shredded cheese
some garlic - s & p
and the main difference was
black beans and I added a cup
when done and serving
I add chopped bacon and a dollop of sour cream.
You figure how much you want to make
I add and delete along the way....
Corn bread would be good with this but do not feel like turning the oven on as the temperature is rising.
Smells so good and have corn chips and my sweet tea
and this is all I need.
Soups are so easy and nutritious for me and soon will be making several times a week.
Evenings I read, many of my old books, sometimes I do not read the whole book but look at all of the
many passages I have underlined and dated - find it interesting.
My youngest daughter, years ago told me she did not like reading my books because they seemed
like my diary with everything I underlined, dated and sometimes wrote comments:)
Still weary today from busy day yesterday
just the way it is...
