Hello friends, a couple of weeks ago, wow where does time go? I mentioned I would try my fried grits recipe in the air fryer. I did, and it took about 4 minutes on each side. You can see the results in the photo below. I didn’t change anything in the recipe itself other than spritzing with a little canola oil on the air fryer basket and the tops of the grits.
The air fried grits were just as crunchy as the oil fried, but not as firm. A few of them crumbled a bit in the air fryer. But it didn’t stop us from eating them. (smile) Right side is air fried.
Thoughts on March
Our boy Izzy had a birthday on the 3rd. I can’t believe he’s 10 years old. We love him so much!
This time of year has me looking forward to continuing the great purge, and of course, spring cleaning. Although that’s still a few weeks away. I’m sticking with the 2 year rule for my purge. If it hasn’t been worn, used or looked at in 2 years it’s being donated, or sold ( I’m still selling my teacup collection). I find myself thinking a lot about the flower garden, and the not to hot, not to cold weather. Spring is the season of new growth.
Did you know March is Women’s History month? It is a celebration of women’s accomplishments that have made significant changes, discoveries and contributions. You can read about it HERE

We won’t be planting anything yet, we still have snow on the ground and another storm is on the way. My spring daffodils, crocus and tulips are peeking through the snow. The flowers in our garden have been very confused by our crazy weather.

Please take a moment to pray for the people in the Ukraine, and those in Russia who are protesting ( even though they know they may face dire consequences). Pray for all of the countries that are welcoming the refugees, and the people who are welcoming the Ukraine refugees into their homes. Pray for those who are sending money and supplies that it all arrives and is used properly. side note-please verify you are donating to a legitimate place, like the red cross. Pray to stop the insanity of it all. Pray for Peace.
