I have been busy reviewing all my tail camera footage and found a white squirrel that hangs in the back of my cabin. I had posted previously another video of this cutie… you can click the underlined link to view it here.
Also, I will be adding new trail cameras within a few weeks to capture more wildlife. So stay tuned!
So when I first started making spaghetti squash I had no idea how to start. How to slice open a spaghetti squash was a complete mystery to me…lol. I would look forward to eating spaghetti squash at a favorite restaurant at the time when I lived in Minneapolis, MN. The rich and butter flavor of spaghetti squash had me captivated.
I was determine to learn to make one for myself at home. After experiment different ways to prep spaghetti squash, I discovered a super easy way of making the process go faster. I used the magic of the microwave and learned that softening the squash was the best way to enjoy making this lovely side dish.
These potatoes are so yummy…it’s like love at first bite. They are a perfect weekend meal when you are busy getting other projects done. Plus, it pairs well with other main dishes. I promise you it’s a win-win.
Hello Friends, I promised some pictures of the snowstorm from last week. I lost power and internet for two days. Trees are down because of the heavy weight of the snow. Overall, the beauty and serenity of the snow made up for the chaos. Love and Blessings, Debra Roinestad
When I first moved to the South, I wanted to try Southern Green Beans and it was absolutely delicious! I decided to add crispy oven-baked prosciutto instead of bacon. It’s the perfect combination of rich flavors that will leave you craving for more.
The word prosciutto translates to “ham” in Italian. It’s 100% natural cured ham without any additives, preservatives, hormones, gluten or coloring agents. Prosciutto had been a popular dish in Italy for thousands of years. So, if you love bacon then you should try oven-baked prosciutto.
During the cold winter months, I have been craving shrimp and broccoli. I love the sweet and tangy flavors that would melt into your mouth. I recalled how easier it was to place a phone order from one of the local Chinese restaurants when I lived in New York City.
Please don’t get me wrong, I love living out here in a cabin in the woods. It’s that the restaurants out here are too far away, and they don’t deliver food.
I decided to create my version of shrimp and broccoli. With a little bit of experimentation, I found the right combination of simple ingredients. So far, I have been pleased with the results. This recipe is easy and brings back all the flavors of an elegant Chinese restaurant.
A few days ago, I came across the scarab or popularly known as the dung beetle during my afternoon walk. I truly admire how poised the scarab sits in his/her space. This was the second time I encountered this cute and astonishing beetle. I feel lucky to encounter the scarab at the beginning of the New Year.
What makes this beautiful creature so sacred?
The sacred scarab was worshipped by the Egyptians as the embodiment of the sun god (the morning sun) Khepri. It is the most famous member of the beetle found in every part of the world except in the oceans and Antarctica. According to the National Geographic Magazine, there are about 30,000 scarab species. In Japan, they were kept as pets.
They are incredibly athletic with powerful legs. Their legs pull a whopping 1,141 times its own body weight.
Although they are not aggressive towards humans but do have a sneaky habit of destroying flowers, turf grass, and food vegetation.
What does it mean if you come across a scarab?
The scarab is a symbol of creation, resurrection, or new life.
