Songs and Sounds on Saturday: Johnny Paycheck - Take This Job And Shove It

This week I picked a song that reminds me of when my grandma quit her job at a nursing home. I was only four or five years old and sung this song to her boss. My family and I still get a laugh from it when we talk about it. There have been times, I like to would have sung it to the different bosses over the years.

The idea for Songs and Sounds on Saturday comes from Valerie. Please visitor her blog, A Mixed Bag.

Food Journey: Italian Bread

What you will need:

  • French bread
  • Butter or Margarine
  • Italian seasoning

You can make you own French bread or buy a fresh loaf at the store. I brought a loaf from the store. Cut the loaf of bread lengthwise. Spear the butter to cover both halves of the beard.

Then sprinkle the Italian seasoning over the butter.

Place in the oven with boiler on. Remove when bread is toasted. This will only take a few minutes. Let it cool for a few minutes. Cut into pieces and enjoy.

Enjoying Nature And Having A Relaxing Weekend

My friend, Seth, and I heading out to DuPont State Forest on Saturday with Rayna my dog for a swim and a hike. Before, we heading out to DuPont State Forest, we dropped a new refrigerator off to my brother Steven and ate lunch at the new Burgerworx in town. Steven lives in a group home and the small refrigerator we got him when he first moved in there stopped working last week. Seth helped me get a new one at the store for Steven and carry it into Steven's room. the new one is a lot bigger then his old one. Steven will be able to fit more drinks and snacks in it. After leaving Steven's house, Seth and I, stopped at Burgerworx on the south-side of Hendersonville. It was my first time at a Burgerworx and I enjoyed it. You can customize your burgers. The fries taste really good even when they get cold.

After lunch, we headed on up to DuPont State Forest. We went to the Fawn Lake Access Area to go swimming and hiking a little.

The entance to the parking area.

Fawn Lake were we went swimming. Seth and I enjoyed the water. Rayna did not enjoy it so much.

After swimming for a little while we head up the trail to the old airstrip. This is one of the many blackberry bashes we saw in bloom.

I notice they fixed up the old hangar at the airstrip since I was out there last summer. It looks nice.

View from the Hangar looking down to the end of the airstrip. The spot at the end is a group of bikers. There were a lot of people out with there bikes this weekend at the forest.

This a the view from the end of the airstrip. I am glad my camera has a panoramic setting. Click on the picture to see a bigger view.

Seth was kind enough to take a picture of Rayna and me at the end of the airstrip with the view in the back. Rayna enjoyed the hike a lot better then the swim.

Looking down the airstrip from the end to the other end.

We started to head back to Fawn Lake after taking pictures at the end of the airstrip. On the the side of the airstrip there was some daisies growing.

We headed back to town and picked up my mom from work. Then I dropped Seth off at his home and headed home myself.

Mom and I ordered pizza for dinner and eat dinner on the patio. While I was eating, was watching the squirrels feeding their young in the nest in the tree in my neighbor's yard. It was a end of on a day enjoying the outdoors.

Sunday was spend resting after church. I have a long week ahead at work with overtime schedule everyday and a meeting to go to on Tuesday. Thank God, next weekend is supposed to be a three day weekend.

Food Journey: Mexican Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwiches

I got the idea for this breakfast sandwich form BinomialBaker: Cinco de Mayo Breakfast Sandwiches. I did not have time to make my own guacamole so I brought some from the store. I skipped the salsa and used a different cheese in which Jodie's recipe calls for. I added the bacon.

Things you will need:

  • 6 English Muffins
  • 6 Eggs cooked your way
  • 6 slices of Habanero and Jalapeno cheese
  • 12 slices of bacon
  • guacamole

Toast the english muffins. Melt cheese on the top slice of the english muffin. Place a tablespoon or 2 of the guacamole on the cheese. Place the egg on the bottom slice of the english muffin with the two slices of bacon on top the egg. Place the top and bottom together and enjoy.

Please take some time to check out the great recipes by Jodie at BinomialBaker.

Special Mother's Day For Mom

Mom does a lot for me. Since she lives with me she does most of the cleaning around the home and the cooking too. Of course, there is all the love she has show over the years. I wanted to make this Mother's Day this year special for mom. I think I succeeded in doing it.

When mom woke in the morning she come into the kitchen to this:

A couple days ago I found an angel in one of the consignment stores I stop at once in awhile on my way to work. I saw a nice angel for $15. Mom loves to collects angels. I am always looking for angels for her.

On the way home Saturday night, I stopped and got a card and flowers to go with the angel at the store. I got a flower in a pot so we can plant it in the yard later. The flower fell over on the way home and got the card a little wet but not too bad.

Mom had to work a few hours this morning. After, church I pickup her up and took her home to clean up and change her clothes. Then we heading to Ryan's, which is a buffet restaurant in Asheville to meet up with my brother, Tim. We leave the choice of where to eat to mom. After lunch, mom and I visited my sister, Mary and her kids and then my brother, Stephen and sister, Lisa.

She was happy to see most of the family on Mother's Day.
