Cucumber Salad


We are in the midst of the growing season in the South so the cucumbers are plentiful. What do you do with all those cucumbers? Top salads, make pickles, slice them and sprinkle with a touch of salt for snacks. Yes to all of those, and of course, make the classic old fashioned Cucumber Salad. It's likely you remember your grandmother making this cool summer side dish. When it's hot, cool refreshing side dishes are always welcome.

Smothered Chicken


Smothered Chicken, a delicious homemade meal of fall off the bone tender chicken in gravy. We love our fried foods in the South and we love gravy too.

Best of all, it's a simple recipe and most of the work is done in the oven.

Starting out, so far so good. I did notice however we were walking downhill. That's when I realized at some point there was going to be an uphill climb. The trail is 1.3 miles long and should take about an hour. 

My husband walked along at a faster pace being more experienced outdoors than myself and I'll admit it, more physically fit. I was making a point to participate in more outdoor activities, exploring and enjoying nature, while getting exercise. If I am going to exercise I would much rather have beautiful nature to enjoy than some gym wall. 


I was careful of my footing, looking down quite a bit to where I was stepping, because of all of the
