Lizard Just Hanging Around

Loving the sunshine! Found this lizard just hanging around on the big whiskey barrel pot. Getting all warmed up. These are great because they eat the ants and other bugs. Spring is here as baby lizards have been out and around too.

Fall is upon us and there's nothing like a bowl of soup or stew. I created this crockpot green chili chicken and corn stew recipe today. A combination of hot and sweet, loaded to the max. There is not a lot of salt added, so you can add more to your liking. Created in the kitchen of Robin Harley October 24, 2016

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup diced green chili
