  • Pan Fried Potatoes and Onions - Lyonnaise Style

    Mar 4, 2021

    Lyonnaise Potatoes (sliced potatoes cooked with onions) are as beautiful as the name.

    Evelyn 'E.T.' Trevathan, Contributing Writer|Mar 4, 2021

    Well, it is a damp and rainy morning here in our little valley. The wind is really blowing hard and heavy rain and possible storms are on the way.

The cats have all eaten and are back on their bed for their cat nap. It is hard to believe that just a week ago, we had a big snow on the ground and 30 degrees. Now this morning it was 65 degrees.

    Dorothy Warf|Mar 4, 2021

    We’ve gone from a week of ice and snow to the month of March and storms beginning on Saturday evening and then off and on Sunday, with severe thunder and lightning and power outages every little bit. I have a monitor for the girls’ room and run a diffuser during the night and every time the power blinked it would go off and I would go reset it, but about the third time I moved them to the hall by my room on sleeping bags for the rest of the night. Glad that Monday is beginning with no rain and no thunderstorms. Hope it lasts through the week. T...
