Cooking all Day

I decided to make some things to take home for after the funeral. I started making a Braised Beef Ragu…images-1so, I had to try some for dinner, I put it over penne pasta…Unknown-1It is so so good!

While it was cooking I made some spicy ranch pretzels…UnknownThey take an hour and a half in the oven, they are pretty tasty!

Afterwards I baked Oatmeal, raisin, chocolate chip cookies…


If you need any recipes let me know. I know you can’t wait to see what I whip up tomorrow.

My Father


My Father had suffered with dementia for a while now. About two months ago we had to move him into a home. His legs stopped functioning. Last week, my brother (who was the one making decisions on where to send him and talking to the doctors etc) called to discuss what was the next step. His heart was giving out and kidneys were going down hill. We all discussed and decided Hospice would be the next step.

God intervened and my Dad died that afternoon.

It is with a heavy heart that I, along with my Mother, brothers, Bill and Dave, and sister, Ellyn would like you to know of our sweet Fathers passing yesterday, October 18th.
All that knew him loved him.
