A Week of (Mostly) Healthy Eating

How many of you try so hard to eat right only to have it completely undone the minute your oilfield man walks in the door? I don’t blame my husband; I blame my complete lack of willpower. So, imagine my surprise when Hubby comes home and says, “I think we need to eat better. I […]

The Oilfield Cafe: Pumpkin Muffins

  Recently, while I was going through my recipe book, I found this recipe for Pumpkin Muffins tucked away between the pages. With it being the season for pumpkins and all, I thought this would be the perfect time to share it with you. I have no idea where this recipe came from originally. The copy I have is hand written […]

Oilfield Cafe: Mississippi Roast

Picture and recipe found at bergcentral.blogspot.com I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: I love my crock-pot.  Any day that I can put everything together in the morning, turn on the pot, and then walk away is a great day.

Sometimes it is hard to keep up with kids, pets, dishes, laundry, and all those other little chores that can not only make the house look dirty, but smell unpleasant as well. One of the newest, greatest Pinterest addictions for […]

Favorite Football Foods- SCORE!

If your oilfield man is anything like mine we live, eat, sleep, and breathe football in our home from August to February. Living in Colorado, we obviously bleed blue and orange, but on Saturdays we are a household full of Peanut Heads!  Football, in a way, brings our little oilfield family together; everyone has their […]

The Oilfield Cafe: Wash Day Beans and Rice

Living in a camper not be the most traditional of lifestyles, but I do happen to be a traditionalist about some things. Doing the wash on Monday happens to be one of them. With all the carrying, washing, drying, folding and putting away that has to be done I like to cook a simple meal […]
