It's official! As of 5:53 p.m. yesterday evening we were hooked up to, and using, "city" water. It took awhile to get the old salty well water out of the pipes and hot water tank, but we are good to go today! There is lots more pressure and the morning shower was divine. I've been busy scrubbing faucets and sinks and shining stuff up; emptying the water cooler on the counter and getting some badly needed counter space. Life is good.

And this is a picture of the New Orleans Gumbo I made this past week. I've never made or eaten gumbo before, so it was a fun project. I loved it! The recipe was in the Feb/Mar issue of my Simply Delicious magazine and used chicken, kielbasa and shrimp, along with canned tomatoes and seasonings. I even used the Cayanne pepper and it was very good. I used instant wild rice for the rice and with the onions, celery and garlic it was delicious! I will definitely make it again.

That's all I have for today. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Until next time, take care and God Bless.

Glad you have your water up and running. If they ever ran a city water line out my way I would consider hooking on just to have water when the power goes out.
I can relate to your salty water because we stayed on an island off the outer banks of NC one year and the water had sulfer in it. I thought I would never get that washed out of my hair and clothes.
Have a blessed weekend
