Mismatched Shoes – At least they’re the same color

Two mismatched shoes both black

Halfway through a photo session in a client’s home I decided to remove my shoes to make sure not to cause damage to the floors.    That’s when I realized I was wearing mismatched shoes.  Same color but two different shoes.  Fortunately they weren’t a tie-up and a slip on.  Some people may have noticed, some may not have.

I still had a full day ahead and knew I would not have a chance to go home and change.  Also, I was not going to go buy new shoes just for the day.  I went on to do the other things I needed to do with the mismatched shoes on and said it wasn’t really that big a deal.

Nevertheless,  I did make sure I went home and changed shoes before going to pick up my grandson from the daycare learning center.  I certainly would not want the good folks there to think I was a bad influence on the lad as he learns to tie shoes and dress himself..

I must admit I did this one other time in my life about 10 years ago when I went to church with two different shoes on and the good Christians enjoyed it way too much. I thought that would be the last time I would ever do this.

Tell me I am not the only one with this little issue.   Check your shoes before you leave home!

You’re only as good as your last biscuit

My cheese biscuits....At least they look pretty.

I recently learned how easy biscuits are to make or thought I did.

Last week I went online and found a recipe for cheese biscuits and made what turned out to be great biscuits even though I didn’t quite have all the ingredients that the recipe required.  Since I had no buttermilk I just used whole milk.  I had no shortening so I used butter.  I had no cheddar cheese so I just used what was left in a package of mixed shredded cheeses used for making Mexican dishes and though it was not quite the quantity required it was ok.  I followed the recipe and what resulted was some excellent cheese biscuits that were all eaten within an hour out of the oven.

Later in the week I was asked to make them again.  It was the same situation except this time I did have some cheddar which I shredded up.  I threw a little extra cheese in and added some herbs.  They turned out even better and I was so proud of myself. Continue reading
