My Shoes Did What?

I love shoes!
Pretty , pretty shoes.
These are my newest shoes, put them with a pencil skirt and gorgeous. Well, I wore my gorgeous shoes to church on Sunday a week and a half ago. Not the first time I have worn them. The third time actually.
I noticed a not so comfortable feeling while dancing down the hallways, it wasn't bad.


Until I got home and took them off.  Let's just say when I put my foot flat on the floor...YIKES, it was excruciating!
I told Papa that something was very wrong with my foot. I thought that maybe the screw in my foot from my bunion surgery had moved, broken, bent.. whatever. (Shhhhhh I don't want to hear you telling me I have no business wearing shoes like this after bunion surgery. SHHHHHHH I TELL YOU!!!)
Have you shut up?

O.k.
I will go on then.

Monday morning I called my Podiatrist and they could not get me in until today. So I have been wearing flats of course for all this time because well, my foot hurt.

I had X-rays. I could see the screw. It's fine by the way.
The Dr. also could see my broken toe. Yes. My second toe is fractured.
Fractured from wearing my shoes. The Dr. said he sees this all the time.
According to him when wearing high heels your foot is in a jacked up position to start with....then with all that weight on your toes, all you have to do is turn your foot funny and SNAP!

No I don't have Osteoporosis.

This is my sexy new boot.
Notice my virgin Bloody Mary. Papa loves me. He knows how to make me happy. Virgin Bloody Mary and a See's run. Mmmmm Hmmmm.

Summer Time And The Living Is Easy



I look at all these beautiful little people and can't believe they are mine.
It's seems like only yesterday my own kids were little like this.
In one month we will have another one.
Little Hash Brown. (Madison) She belongs to Zeke there on the right. Maybe after she is born he will actually sit close to someone in a picture.

Are You Ready For A Good Time? Cheese Fries

As promised here is my recipe for Cheese Fries. The original came from Miss Paula Dean. Usually I don't change anything Miss Paula does but, on this one I tweaked.


My Family are cheese freaks. We had this with our B.B.Q.'d steak and salad last night and Mmmmm. Mmmmmmm. It is yummy.

Here Goes:
1 28 - 32 oz. package frozen shoestring French fries, thawed and divided. I like the 32 oz. size the best.
1 16 oz. container sour cream
1 10.5 oz. can cream of chicken soup
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
2 1oz. packages ranch salad dressing and seasoning mix
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 teas. salt
1 8 oz. package shredded Cheddar cheese
1 8oz. package Mozzarella cheese
2 - 4 cups Cheddar, Monterrey jack mix shredded cheese.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 13x9x2 inch baking dish. Spread half of French fries to cover bottom of prepared dish. In a large bowl, combine sour cream, chicken soup, cream cheese, dressing mix, broth  and salt.

Spread half of sour cream mixture over fries, top with  the cheddar and mozzarella cheese.

Spread remaining fries evenly over cheese, top with remaining sour cream mixture, and then top that with the Cheddar, Monterrey jack cheese mixture. I load the top of the pan with as much cheese as I can possibly get on there with out it boiling over while it is baking. If you don't want that much cheese on top, just add less.

Cover, and bake for 1 hour. Uncover and bake for 10 more minutes.

I cut this into portions with a spatula and serve it that way. Easier than using a spoon. It is gooey delishisnous at it's best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
