the trees are so beautiful, budding out and all, and the flowers too, and the pretty, green grass, but that pollen... it is not so pretty!! it has had me tore up!!, and that devilish purple stuff from the trees hanging..... wisteria... wisteria... it just sounds bad.. it does not like me at all.. but that;s ok.. the feeling is MUTUAL!!!!!!

i have been to the doctor twice in the past week. i have a double ear infection.. i have been on 2 different meds, and they are/have been making me real sick!!! I am feeling a lot better. we had our annual kick off to spring and the camping season this past weekend. we ended up at one of our favorite destinations.we love to go to this place. it is not too far away. we took the camper and the boat. it is so fun fishing with my sweetie!! he gets all excited for me when i catch fish!! and that makes me happy. we had a great time. it was a little cool it rained on thursday night, but we had so much fun, camping, fishing, and eating yummy food, reading, hanging some new organizing things inside the camper. we had some company on friday night. we had my niece and her fiance for a steak dinner.. we had a great time chillaxing with them and started talking about the planning of the wedding soon.. i can't wait for this wedding. it is gonna be so pretty.. it makes me so happy to know she is finally happy!!!

Breakfast Skillet

Every now and then, I see something on tv, advertising a certain product, this time it was the  ''simply potatoes''.. I get ideas that start spinning in my head..'' I would like to try that with this,''... I start thinking of different things to add or take away to make it my own. A few weeks ago, I had some time off and it was during the big snow..haha    the big snow that was gone by the next day!!! It sure was pretty while it lasted!!  I experimented in the kitchen a little.. I tried a new breakfast skillet.. I really liked it, and so did hubby. I served it with a side of bacon, but already have a new version for the next one...( haha) and I ate mine with a side of gave it a great added taste..


 1 bag of shredded hashbrowns
1 bag of sharp shredded cheddar cheese
6 eggs or 6 egg beaters (either one)
oil for the skillet

 heat enough oil to coat the skillet, add the potatoes.. (I added almost the whole bag).. let cook for about 6-8 minutes.. then flip in sections, and cook the other side for 6-8 minutes.

 after the second side is done, beat the 6 eggs, and pour on top of potatoes.

 let the eggs cook, add salt and pepper to taste at this time.

 when the eggs start to pull away from the side of the pan, scatter the cheese.
 this is when I like to see it get all melted and yummy looking!!!

 this is the final product!!!! It was so good.. next time I would like to add monterey jack cheese, diced ham, or the real bacon pieces, sauteed onion, and peppers.. mmmmm! It kind of reminds me of Waffle House scattered, covered, smothered.. you know!!! I also think this would be great when you have breakfast for supper, we love to do that !!!!
then it was time to go play in the pretty snow before it all melted !!!!!
