One of the reasons I decided to stay in Michigan after my initial move here to clear my head, was the cooler temperatures. Oklahoma summers last much more than the Michigan 3- month time period. I think my first summer here it hardly made it past 80. In Oklahoma I am used to triple digits with heat indexes making it well into the 120s. Yuck! It is an interesting sight sometimes, to live in a place where the government issues heat advisories and has the Red Cross set up on street corners to provide bottles of water to those who are out in the heat.

mmmmm I love Mexican food. I blame it on growing up in the south where good Mexican food is on every street corner. The other day I was craving tacos. Only problem was I didn’t have any taco shells. I wasn’t worried too much about ground meat of some kind because I had some leftover beans that I could easily turn into refried beans. [Read more…]
