The Vedavoo Reel Service Project IV has kicked off.  If you don't know about the Vedavoo Reel Service Project, then you should.  I've copied and pasted the verbiage from the Vedavoo website below.  Entering is free, and donations are welcomed and encouraged!

Here's a blurb from the Vedavoo website.

Behind the creation of each of these beautiful and unique bags is a effort to get you to donate to Project Healing Waters.
In partnership with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. the REEL SERVICE PROJECT was initiated in 2013 to help raise funds for veteran-focused causes in the Fly Fishing community. That initial effort, which included a series of VEDAVOO packs made out of fabric provided by Patrick over at Recycled Waders featuring original artwork by Jeff Currier set the stage for events to follow.
Proceeds from Reel Service III were enough to pay for nearly 28 YEARS WORTH of FLY TYING COURSES AND MATERIALS for wounded veterans through the efficient use of funds by Project Healing Waters.
Having had the opportunity to receive each artist’s commitment – we are truly humbled and inspired by how quickly and passionately each has stepped up for the cause.  As before, VEDAVOO will lead the effort by providing the materials and labor to build the bags and each artist will provide their time and vision painting their signature aesthetic to each finished piece. This year’s event promises to be the best to date. Enter to win one of these very special bags. No Purchase Necessary.

I have mentioned it in the past, but my very beautiful and talented cousin Brianna has a food blog - Swinton Kitchen.  I'm not one for recipes, and usually just make things based on what I know works together.  Recently, I decided that I was going to give one of her recipes a shot.

I chose the Swinton Kitchen: Cucumber Salmon Bites, and let me tell ya...they turned out fantastic, and delicious!!!

My finished product. Devoured moments after this photo.
Next up on my Swinton Kitchen list to try are the Apple Cookies.  I'll report back.

Thanksgiving, again.

I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving.  Spent lots of time with family, friends, and food.  I know I sure did, and I've been trying to work it all off ever since.  I love the food on that day so much, I decided I was going to cook a few things that I enjoy eating on that holiday, so, I can have it for dinner all week.

While I was walking through my local grocery store on Sunday, they were having a sale on turkey legs, so, I picked up 4 of them.  I've never cooked a turkey, hell, I'm not very good with ovens.  I can cook on a grill and stove top no problem, but the oven always gives me issues.

While I'm not one for following recipes, and usually just make everything off the top of my head or however I think my Mom would make things, I had to look up the temperature and time turkey needs to be cooked.

I started by placing the 4 turkey legs in a large tin or whatever it's called.

Next I just added a bunch of herbs and spices that I enjoy to a little bowl to season the turkey.

Black Pepper
Lemon Pepper

Chopped up some yukon gold potatoes.

Cleaned and chopped up some carrots and a white onion.

After seasoning the turkey legs, I added all of the vegetables.  I also, added some extra virgin olive oil, and water.

I let it bake in the oven at 350 degree's for 2 hours and 15 minutes.

The finished product looked fantastic!

It tasted even better!

Good thing I'm doing double days at the gym again.  Need to get back in shape, and eat all of this delicious food at the same time.  It's not easy being me. :)
