Happy Valentine's Month!
Random Musings of a Confused Writer
One of the really cool things about being an author is that friends give you presents that reflect your work. This wall hanging is perfect for my Hearts of Owyhee series and came from my friend Sandra Straight. Yes, it was for Christmas but I think it works well for Valentine's Month, too.
|Horseshoes and barbed wire. How cool!|
Speaking of Honey Beaulieu (okay, we weren't, but still), she's been hanging out with Bernie lately.

We're still in the throes of a kitchen remodel and it looks like we will be for quite a while. Spring is on its way and the growing season doesn't wait for carpentry work. But meantime I'm thoroughly enjoying my new stainless steel countertop.
And I've done a little cooking on it, too. We're totally loving some blueberry chia seed pudding. So yummy, and keto, too!
|A little goes a long way! And keeps you satisfied, too.|
One thing I've been craving lately is egg rolls. I really love them, but when you're allergic to grains finding a wrapper is somewhat challenging. I used to be able to buy tapioca skins, but we can't find them anymore, not even on Amazon. But these wrappers are soybean skins, and they worked out really well.
|Egg rolls made like my Thai friend showed me many years ago.|
And of course I'm always trying new things in my Instant Pot. This is paneer, which is the Indian version of queso fresco. I'm telling you, this cheese is soooo good! I've used in place of mozzarella several ways, including in fathead dough, and it's been perfect every time. It's economical and so easy to make.
|Paneer, so delcious!|
I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day. For a treat, read Aurora's Treasure: The Golden Legacy. And for a treat to moi, leave a review on Amazon! I'd sure appreciate it.
Next month, if I'm persuaded, I'll post a delicious low carb, high protein, low fat brownie recipe that's to die for. Meantime...
If you're on Snapchat, friend me! My handle is jacquierogers. You can get videos of Sassy's latest updates there. And goofy pictures of her scribe.
