Hope Rising.

"I would rather live my life as if there is a God & die, to find out there isn't,
than live my life as if there isn't & die to find out there is."
-Albert Camus
Blessed is she, who believes that The Lord will fulfill His promises to her.

Fish Stick Po' Boys

One of my absolute favorite sandwiches!

  • 20 Ounce Package Frozen Fish Sticks (About 30 Sticks)
  • 1/2 Cup Mayo
  • 2 Teaspoon Hot Sauce
  • 2 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • 4 Sub-Style Sandwich Rolls
  • 2 Cups Shredded Lettuce
  • 3 Tomatoes, Sliced
  • Lemon Wedges
First, spread the fish sticks out on a baking sheet, to cook, at 475 degrees, for the directed time on box.

In a small bowl, combine the mayo, hot sauce, & lemon juice; mixing well!

When the fish sticks are done cooking, remove them from the oven; replacing the fish sticks with rolls. Turn the oven off & then place the rolls in the oven, to get nice & toasty.

To make a sandwich, smear 1 side of each roll with the mayo mixture. Add a few fish sticks to one slice of roll, & top with lettuce, tomatoes, & then the other slice of bread.

Serve with lemon wedges & extra mayo mixture.

Makes about 4 servings.

Well hello!

Holy Macaroni.. You turn your back for a second & 5 months fly right by. So sorry! 
So much can change over such a short amount of time; way too much to even list in one post! So I will just try to hit the high points. (:
•These are my "pretty boys". {Sorry for the picture quality. These were all taken with my phone!}
Left to right they are; 
-Giddy Up Go Reno- "Reno" is my 2 year old Hancock/Driftwood dun gelding. He's wonderful! So. Flippin. Excited.
-Rock N Roll Roni- "Roni" is my blue roan yearling, who I just started working with. Also a Hancock/Driftwood cross, (Reno's half brother on top), & is gonna be rockin!
-Ranchstyle Beans- "Beans", (also known as Mr. Wonderful), is my 5 year old Hancock/Leo brown gelding. Poor guy is on the brink of being completely back to normal; after being told he had Broncho Pneumonia. But he still gets out & works for me even if he's coughing his little heart out. He definitely ain't no wuss. Which makes me glad. 
-Wyo Blue Kid- I had started riding "Chip", (Beans' daddy & a son of the late Wyo Blue Bonnet), back in May, when he was a stud. Since then, we've cut down our production herd & decided to cut Mr. Studly to keep around as a gelding. I keep telling my dad I'm going to turn him into a barrel horse. He is a turning fool!
•Back in May I turned 17 & got my first vehicle! Proud to be a Cummins girl! 

•Many late nights & early mornings! No one ever remembers the days where you got plenty of sleep. 

•My buddy Reno & I at his 2nd barrel race ever. We didn't compete or anything, but I told him he better get used to it. 
•Typical of Gem.. Many times that I've wanted to jump right in with him. 

•Family fun day at Gulches Of Fun in Deadwood, SD! 

•For of those who don't know, I love to work out. Maybe because I love the endorphins. Maybe because I love food. Not sure. But I love to work out. Insanity kicks my butt everytime! I also enjoy TurboFire & P90X! Get ittttttt!
•Fixing fence with my pretty mama. That's just how we do. 

•We've been very thankful for the occasional rain, keeping things green & happy! 

I'm not making any promises about keeping up with my blog. 
Mostly because I know me. 
But I will try. 
Blessing to you all! (:
