Green Jacket By Amy C. Witt

From fishing to roping, I have never worn such a comfortable, functional and warm jacket. Olive green and silky, the Marino Bomber is rugged yet feminine and compliments well. The milk chocolate interior lining is lush and keeps the cold away on a nippy day. The olive green exterior is thick and rich with a pretty stitch. Along with its flexibility, it provides endless styling options and always makes me feel pretty.

The Ranch Riding Extraordinaire

“Both of the horses were dead on that day and it must have been my turn to win,” Meadows said. “I was grateful that I did it. That’s a cool thing and I don’t know if I will ever do it again. I’ve never done it before. It was pretty cool to add that to my resume that’s for sure.”

Ranching: A Family Affair

When my grandparents bought our ranch, more than seven decades ago, they started with two kids, 13 cows, and one heck of a dream.

Fully Loaded Taco Salad

I absolutely love salads. But not just any old salad, though. I love salads that are fully loaded with lots of toppings. Some people may think of just cutting up some lettuce and topping it off with some croutons and dressing. No way! Make them fun and exciting. There is absolutely no reason why they should be boring. Besides, making them well rounded also ensures that you are getting a lot of nutritional value out of it. (Protein, lots of veggies, dairy, etc.)

Slum Gullion

It always seems like there are particular foods that kids gravitate towards when they are really young. From experience with my niece and nephew and numerous cousins, I’ve seen it a lot. Lots of mac and cheese, grilled cheese, cereal, and premade lunches from the lunch meat and cheese department at the store. Trying to find something they will eat that is still nutritious can be a balancing act. When I was little, my mom made something for she and my dad that they liked and I ate a slightly simpler version of it. Her first rule was that whatever they ate, I ate too. She was not going to make me a special dinner. I think because of that philosophy I was never a picky eater. I did have certain foods where it was a hard ‘no’ to me eating it such as raw onions or tomatoes (I still won’t eat them raw for the most part). Her second rule was that I had to try everything at least once. After I tried it, then I could say I didn’t like it and she wouldn’t bother me about it again.
