Cleveland Mississippi

Let take a trip to a Delta State Football Game! GO FIGHTING OKRA!

If you didn't already know, I work for sports communications of Delta State University. With an All-Access pass to every game in tow, I am required to record the participation of every young athlete that plays.

As I arrived to the field the vastness of the bleachers was a little daunting. Knowing that I had to make my way to the top did not help my fear of heights.

The backside was even more impressive.

I stopped by the athletics department to gather my thoughts.

As I made my way up I found myself breathless by both the view of the field and the steep climb up.
I took some time to regain my composure and snap this beauty of the some players preparing.

The Mississippi Delta is a vast flat land of mostly agricultural businesses and forestry. It is a great place to both live and work. 

The enemy prepares for the brawl.

Our boys rally in full force; ready to take on their opponent!

The Delta State marching band shows their support at the halftime show. A video of some of our sounds of the delta will be available shortly.

What seems to be a forest fire in the distance is only a hard working farmer burning his field so that it will regrow even more fertile.

Having played well into the night, our team was victorious 28 - 21.

I hope you've enjoyed this trip to the Delta and there will be many more photo shoots in the near future.


Today there will be a new element introduced to this land of giveaways, designs, and recipes; PHOTOGRAPHS!

I hope you enjoy my new collection, all taken from the Mississippi Delta!

Sunday Dinner

          My mom has been working so hard to get my little sister ready to start school that I decided to make sunday dinner for the family. Seeing that I go back to college next sunday, today was my last chance. So tonight, I will be preparing the healthiest sunday dinner my family has ever eaten. Usually, I do not turn to recipes for cooking instructions, but my family may not be ready for my extreme tendency of replacing salts and fats with garlic and spices! 

After some scouring the interwebs for some interesting ideas I found this:

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

  • 1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 onion, cut into wedges
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Thai chili sauce or hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs


  1. If grilling, preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil a sheet of aluminum foil. If baking, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and lightly oil a baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash black beans with a fork until thick and pasty.
  3. In a food processor, finely chop bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Then stir into mashed beans.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together egg, chili powder, cumin, and chili sauce.
  5. Stir the egg mixture into the mashed beans. Mix in bread crumbs until the mixture is sticky and holds together. Divide mixture into four patties.
  6. If grilling, place patties on foil, and grill about 8 minutes on each side. If baking, place patties on baking sheet, and bake about 10 minutes on each side.

I only hope this tasty looking sandwich can help you and yours as it helped me and mine!!!
