St. Patty’s Day, a great day and yummy food 2017

Oh My…..Way too much food but yum yum yum!!! It was most definitely a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!  Per the request of my husband for something besides just Corned Beef & Cabbage(he won’t eat the cabbage, lol) so I googled and found a couple new recipes and tweaked it to how I thought they should be, YUM YUM YUM…….

Corned Beef Shepherds Pie……Extra Stout Guinness Pulled Pork Shepherds Pie plus extra Seasoned pulled pork that’s super yummy, a little spicy but slow cooked (on high) in extra Stout Guinness w/onions…yum…yum…yum!!!  Hope everyone else had a wonderful St. Patty’s Day!!!

Where there is a will, there is a way……try New Things as you NEVER until you try it!!  thanks for Reading my Thoughts……..Robin Robinson

Christmas Eve Day Mishap and I’m still LAUGHING at myself!! 

DISCLAIMER: DO NOT ATTEMPT THE FOLLOWING What do these ingredients: Tequila, Peanut Butter, Lime & Serrano Pepper (cut in pan) have in common? 

It was Christmas Eve Day and the food prep had begun. One Serrano Pepper (seeds & membranes removed) cut up for the corn. NO spice at all so time for Serrano Pepper #2 but this time while thinking to herself, Robin decides that maybe some of the membrane and/or seeds should be included but first she should double check for any heat. (As she takes the smallest piece of membrane possible to test she is debating on wether this is a good idea or not but because the first one has NO heat to the Pepper at all it should be ok.) The small piece of membrane was slightly touched to the tip of her tongue and there was nothing at first followed by the most intense, on fire, burning sensation possible (Robin is a pansy when it comes to spice and this was WAY over the top!!) 
As Robin knew better than to drink water she fumbled around for something to help!! She found saltine crackers, a cookie, coffee, summer sausage and finally resorted to an ice cube to hopefully numb the pain!! While the ice cube was on the tongue the pain was relieved but once melted the intensity was in full force and had spread to her lips as she had been moving the ice cube back and forth and had apparently touched her lips with her on fire, Pepper oil laced tongue!!!! 

NOW WHAT?!?!?! No what was she suppose to do?!?! NO milk in the house to try and the burning pain was unbearable (kind of funny because deep inside she knew it was a dumb idea)!!!! GOOGLE!!!! GOOGLE was the answer, there must be some info on what to try online!! She quickly googled it and found a chart of “Do’s and Don’ts” and went into action with a giant jar of Peanut Butter!!

She quickly took a giant spoonful of Peanut Butter and plopped it in her mouth. She then smooshed it ALL over including on her lips in an attempt to help the burning sensations and control the flames that she was surely throwing out in every breath! (Terry and Zach were a lot of sympathetic help as they obviously laughed with her during her time of pain…insert heavy heavy sarcasm.) As the Peanut Butter was melting and liquefying in the heat it wasn’t helping!! So Robin decided it just sitting in her mouth and on her lips was NOT working so she quickly (as quick as possible with gooey sticky Peanut Butter) swallowed the Peanut Butter!! To her surprise the pain and burning had slightly subsided but was still extremely prominent and painful….what was next on the Chart that she had on hand? TEQUILA!!!

A “DO” for relieving the heat was Alcohol!!! (Please note that a big DON’T is Beer but Hard Alcohol is good.) “Time for Alcohol”, grabs the warm tequila and cuts a piece of lime. (You have to have lime with Tequila as it is yummier but NO time to chill just have to down warm!! Robin is apprehensive about Alcohol but willing to try anything at this point! The worse that happens is she just has to cook a little tipsy, she’s done that before so no big deal!!😉)

Here goes and down goes the shot after a quick swish around the mouth followed by the lime…..Hmmmmm, WOW!!! The intense Fire, Burning and Pain was gone from her tongue and just a little slight sting was left on her lips!! HURRAY!!!! HIP HIP HURRAY GOOGLE, PEANUT BUTTER & TEQUILA SAVED THE DAY!!! 

DISCLAIMER: While the above scenario is True and Factual, DO NOT ATTEMPT to Repeat just to see if Peanut Butter and Tequila really work!!!! LoL 

Just thought I would make a few of ya smile, chuckle, shake your head and/or laugh out loud by sharing my mishaps on Christmas Eve Day!! Hope you ALL had a wonderful Christmas!! Luv & Hugs to you ALL!! Thanks for reading my thoughts……Robin Robinson

Valentine’s Day Thoughts…….Share and feel the Love year-round!!!

Day after Christmas thoughts….

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!! I have scrolled by this countdown Christmas Countdown a few times but yet I stop and pause……  

I cannot help but be SO thankful for the family and friends that we have in our lives both near and far!!

I am also emotional but extremely grateful for the people who have touched our lives throughout the years that are no longer with us but still in our hearts!!! 

 I know where I am right now but I wonder where we will ALL be next year, next Christmas Season……

What are your goals? Where do you want to travel? What are your hopes and dreams? What do you hope to achieve in 2016? 

YOLO….You Only Live Once so why not make the best of it?!?!? 

Try new things….Do the things you’ve always wanted to….See, travel and experience new adventures….don’t let life slip by with “I wish I had tried or done…..”!!!

Where do you see yourself next year and what will you be doing?!?!?! 😉😊 

 Just some thoughts on this cold winter morning the day after Christmas as I feel so ever blessed and grateful!! 

 ****I will comment below and would love to see what you have to say!!!  Thanks for reading my thoughts…….Robin Robinson

2016—I see traveling and visiting friends and family that I haven’t seen in awhile…..I see a few new adventures and places visited that I have not been before…..I will be a stronger less emotional (crying bawl baby at everything) kind of woman (wishful thinking but worth a try😋)…..I see the Christmas Season next year visiting or getting together with all my boys (Zach, Tucker, Tyler & Wyatt and maybe others) somewhere different and out of the norm…..I see myself being happy, enjoying life and being surrounded by loved ones near and far!!!!
