If any of you read my other personal blog-you know that the transition to becoming an Arizonan has not been easy.

Black Friday I nearly died-literally.  My beloved PT cruiser gave her life for me.  I’m very battered and bruised, but grateful to be here.

Obviously cooking has been on the proverbial “back burner“.  The first few days had me throwing up non-stop.  It was from a mixture of painkillers, trauma and probably an undetected concussion.  Whatever-I’m here, but not doing very much at all.

Yesterday I actually cooked.  My husband purchased some beautiful beef ribs.  With his help in the lifting department I rubbed them with a mixture of cumin, cinnamon, brown sugar and sea salt.  I had him cover them up and just sit in the fridge and enjoy themselves for the day.  I also had some help peeling and dicing a butternut squash and made Hungry Girl’s “you won’t believe it’s not sweet potato” casserole.  

Before the accident I bought some french vanilla snowman marshmallows for our grandsons’ hot chocolate for a treat-used some of those and I added a teaspoon of ginger to the spices.  It was pretty yummy with the ribs.  

There was an added bonus of having enough left over for dinner tonight too!

I have no car, but the rest is kind of getting together.  The backsplash we chose for the kitchen has me finally thinking that once other things take place.  Arizona will feel like home.

That and once my family stops looking at me as if I’m going to break.

Love it
