Bluebirds Love First Snow

Our first snow came 1/09/11. We got about 6-7 inches, which is a lot for us here in central Arkansas. Even more unusual was, it stayed around for a week due to continuing temperatures below freezing. The bluebirds were like kids (from the old days)flying around like they were playing chase & hide-an-seek. Odd, because I didn't see any kids out playing!??? I guess they would rather be in their warm & snug houses playing on their PS2's and what-not. I had a blast watching those little bluebirds. They were all, fat & happy. I had never seen so many at one time, they were all out there fluttering around, ruffling their feathers & cheeping. That made my day!Playing Hide-&-Seek

Look close, do you see the secret ingredient??...Do you see it?? Black-eyed Peas?! Yes, that's right...
Sometimes I wonder if eating black-eyed peas on New Year's day is good luck or not. Every year I think maybe I won't eat them, just to see what happens but every year I decide not to take a chance. I mean, why would you want to test the Good Luck Gods? I like peas & eat them on a regular basis so, why not just continue to put them on the menu January 1st every year. So, this year instead of second guessing whether or not to eat them, I decided to use them in a different way. My hubby wanted me to make pizza so I just added mine to my pie. Boy! That was a good decision. It was "de-lish" as my grandmother used to say!!
