A New Look

In an effort to make Sassy Condiments easier on the eyes to read, I have updated the look.

It was cheaper than refurbishing the livingroom!

All kidding aside, if this is easier for you, I would like to know. 

Then again, if you don’t like the new, it definitely isn’t an improvement and I must know!  Some day, I will learn to design my own site and fix it up all organized and spiffy.

I want you to feel at home when you stop by for a visit.  My goal is for you to enjoy your stay, the way you feel when you have on your favorite jammies or hide-me-in-the-closet jogging suit.  Feel free to bring a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night.  Well, then again, maybe it’s the other way around? 

Thank you for coming into my world.  I just wish I could meet each and every one of you.  When I sit back and think about it, life is really amazing through the world-wide web.  We each make new friends, visit new places and sometimes we learn about each other.  Sometimes it’s good, sometimes corny, sad, happy or just plain silly…but isn’t that what friends are about?

Thank you for sharing with me!

YOU are my Sassy Condiment!

The site has been changed back to this warm, comfy feeling.

Three people voiced their opinions and I responded to their wishes.

Thank your for your responses!

I love giggles!

Grandmother about a month after she moved in with us. 

She had gained back about 30 pounds during this month, she wasn’t as frail. More

Love your family, love your children.

Sassy Condiments

When I originally named this blog, I had in mind the fun and tantalizing condiments we eat on our food.  There are so many variations of even just one condiment, let’s say mustard.  You know the list; yellow mustard, honey mustard, Dijon, fruit mustard, wine mustard, beer mustard, mustard, mustard, mustard!  Have you ever stopped to think about how would life be without mustard, much less all the other delightful condiments?

After pondering this, I decided that life itself is spiced with condiments, the little things in life that spice up our day.

In December, my 92 year old Grandmother moved in with us.  She is no longer able to take care of herself.  The Sassy Condiment in life since then has been the dementia and Alzheimer’s slowly trying to make their appearance.  I would call this a Sassy Condiment, sassy being the key word here.

Neither disease is something we look forward to but it does give the taste of life a new flavor.  We learn to take this new condiment and work with it.  When you are going through recipes and you find a condiment that sounds intriguing, you then have to decide what to do with it.  How are you going to serve it? What will be the best meat or veggie to go with this?  Well, daily we are trying to decide just how to do this with the Sassy Condiments we have been given.

Enough for the dementia and Alzheimer’s for now.  This blog is about life, recipes, the ups and downs, the crazy, zany delightful thing called life and everything in it.

Welcome to my world and I hope you enjoy your visits.  I can promise some days will be top of the world and others will be the pits.   Just remember, not all condiments are created equal.
