My valentine to you is a recipe of delicious Mexican soup!

Just throw in a can of Mexican corn,
a jar of Salsa,
a can of diced tomatoes,
a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies,
a can creamed corn,
1 or 2 cans of black beans,
a box of Zatarain's Yellow Rice,
and approximately 2 - 3 quarts of chicken broth.

Do NOT drain cans. Put into a large stock pot and bring to a boil.
Simmer until the rice is done...about 30 to 45 minutes. Serve in bowls with finely grated cheese on top. YUMMY!

Back in the Groove!!!

Well...I think I'm finally back in the groove...working on my jewelry. Back in November, I got busy on Christmas gifts and my "jewelry making days" went by the wayside...and after Christmas, I was busy planning for and going on vacation. So...maybe now, I'll keep on working.

Copper and Silver Earrings, I worked with some copper discs on silver earwires. I made a couple pair...and tried to antique one pair but I think my liver of sulphur's a bit too old.

Coral Earrings

I haven't been working on any jewelry since November...too many Christmas gifts to work on. My friend, Pat, came over yesterday and we started working on our jewelry again. Here's a pair of earrings I made from some coral that I bought while on vacation in Mexico.

WOW! Snow!

The weather man was certainly wrong this morning in our forecast for this morning. He said it would rain...but we've got snow and such a big flakes, that it covered the ground in thirty minutes. How beautiful...and what a surprise!
