Shirts, Snakes and Suppers

It's funny because I always say "dinner" but I used "supper" in my title because I like alliteration. Maybe it's a regional thing? Do you say supper or dinner? Anyway, I wanted to share these cute shirts I got at Walmart. 

Click HERE to order, but do it now if you want one because they're going fast. They're also available in stores.

Here's what I like about them, aside from the $8.88 price. They're short sleeved and thin, which makes them a year round piece around here. Also, see how they're a hi-low shirt? Meaning the back is a tad longer than the front? I love that because then I can wear them with my Old Navy Pixie pants or even leggings and they cover my bum. :) And look at all those colors! I got it in six different shades. 

Here's a little PSA about Walmart. Did you know they offer free 2 day shipping on orders over $35? Yep, and there's no annual fee, unlike Amazon Prime. Which by the way, did you hear Amazon is raising their annual Prime rate to $120? Ugh. I remember the good ol' days when it was "only" $79/year. 

So, I went for a walk around the lake the other day and look what I saw...

He had an identical twin too. :) I actually stopped long enough to take a video. They were really graceful together.

So, y'all know I've been slacking in the cooking department, right? I rarely cook dinner anymore. (See...dinner, lol!) But for whatever reason, I made three meals this week. They were very easy and tasty too, so I thought I'd share. 

First up is Paula Deen's crockpot mac n cheese. 

Click HERE for the recipe. It's really easy and so very tasty! We usually fight over the leftovers. 

Next up is another crockpot recipe. This one is potato soup. It's made with frozen hash browns and is really easy. 

Here are the only ingredients...

Obviously I pulled this pic from an old blog post. :) 

To this day, it's still one of my most popular posts. Click HERE for the potato soup recipe. 

And my third meal of the week was Spanish rice with sausage. I just used these ingredients...

Two packets of Mahatma Spanish rice, jalapeño sausage, diced green chilis and diced tomatoes. I ended up not using the tomatoes though. I just followed the directions on the rice package and added the sausage and green chilis at the same time I added the rice. The green chilis added a lot of flavor and heat to it, which I love. 

Oh, and I made STACEY'S MAGIC BISCUITS. Y'all...these will literally MELT IN YOUR MOUTH! Trust me on this one. If I'm willing to turn on my oven in 90º heat, you know it's good. :) The best part is they only take about 5 minutes to prepare. I think her recipe says to bake 15-18 minutes, but I only bake mine for 11, but maybe that's just my oven. And I've used both light sour cream and regular and they're both great. 


Y'all be sure to click HERE for more of Stacey's yummy recipes. 

One more thing. I'm making this Peach Crunch Cake this weekend while we celebrate my mom's b-day and Mother's Day. 

Would you just look at that homemade vanilla ice cream melting on top? Oh my! Click HERE for the recipe. 

Are you hungry now? Wishing all of you a Happy Mother's Day! 



  1. You are so sweet! Your meal looks amazing. I have to tell you...my mom makes a dish very similar to the one you made with Mahatma rice. Hers is very similar to yours but it has chicken too. We love it!

    Your crisp looks right up my alley. :)

  2. Hi Lisa, I say dinner, ha! Those biscuits and peach crunch cake look amazing!
    What day is your mom's birthday? Mine is Friday, planning to go to Galveston and have some seafood for lunch! Happy Mother's Day!

  3. Yum Yum! I think I gained 10 pounds just reading the recipes lol! Those biscuits would be my weakness. I love a soft and crunchy top biscuit anytime. Love those tops I will check them out and the price wowsie! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Yikes, I hate snakes! I hope you were way far away. Of course, here, it would be rattlesnakes (they can swim, too)...I've lived in AZ for 30+ years and have only seen one in the wild!

    That peach dessert looks delicious! I love a good biscuit but haven't had Bisquick in my cupboard for years....guess that's a good thing!

    Hope you are having a great week!

  5. I really like your posts about everyday life! Thanks for blogging.

    1. Thank you so much, Joanie! I appreciate you reading! :)

  6. Yay for cooking! I'm curious to try the biscuit recipe. I've never made homemade biscuits. They always seemed so intimidating to me.


I love hearing from all of you! I try to respond to all comments and questions via email as quickly as possible. If you are a no-reply comment blogger (no email address) I will respond in the comments section, so be sure to check back for a response. :)
