Our Memorial weekend is probably going to be a wash out,
as in rain every day at least off and on.
Maybe fire up the grill for some fast meat that goes on a bun
only to whisk it into the house when it's cooked.
My dad would of grilled, a little rain wouldn't of stopped him.
He was happy to have the freedom to do it, even in the rain.
Most of the kids are harmless these days - I've had this pitchfork poked in the ground by the mudroom door for about 15 years - back when you did take your life
into your hands entering a home with 5 (at that time) kids.
I felt people should be warned. The kids had the freedom to run, play and be heard.
I have had to touch up the paint a couple times on the wood flag.
We also have a huge sign Brawn made when our oldest
and two of his buddies were in the Marines.
"Land of the Free Because of the Brave".
We hang it on a tree by the road (photo another time, it's raining 'ya know!).
Our oldest joined 4 months after 9/11 while he was in college.
He finished his last few months of college, got his degree
and headed off to do his part.
This weekend I have the freedom to be eating this............
The Grilled Pepper Jack Cheese Sammy
6 months ago I discovered this sandwich at the blog Uncluttered Lifestyle, which caught my eye as that's where I felt I was at with my home.....it needed some uncluttering. Since then I've spent more time hauling junk into my house and learning how to work with it (thanks to all you talented bloggers)
than I have spent hauling stuff out.
Every week Iesha inspires me to free myself and unclutter something,
But this weekend because of rain, I'm just inspired to eat.
This is my very favorite sammy. It has deli meat, tomato, grilled onions,
pepper-jack cheese, tastes great on any interesting bread you enjoy,
and I add avocado to mine which is sort of like the frosting on the cake for me.
You can find her recipe here.
Remember those lucky ducks Klous and Clyde?
They are getting really big and don't mind this weather at all.
My daughter has trained them to come when she calls.
She also had to build them their own pond.
When she can train them not to leave duck doo on the patio
they can swim in the pond back there.
I guess since we won't be enjoying the patio this weekend
Klous & Clyde could maybe have the freedom to do so.
The rain should wash the doo away.
Yes the land of the free because of the brave.
We don't take any of it for granted at Bliss Ranch.
