Welcome Friends!

It sure has been a busy day. I guess it was the fault of the time change. Gotta blame it on somethin.

I had planned on postin a recipe but my son was here today, he's home on leave. My granddaughter spent the weekend and there was just too much commotion goin on. I did a lot of cookin but couldn't take the time to take pictures of food.

Here's my son and granddaughter, those two are buds. If you look close you can see my daughter in the background on the bench jawin on the phone. And no, everything is not still green here. We are in fall colors like everybody else. This picture was this past summer before my son left.

It was a beautiful day here. Temp was up in the 70's. Not too many more of these types of days for a while.

Since I'm not leavin a recipe I thought I'd give you a little kitchen humor.

I just loved this when I found it in one of my Mom's old cook books. I don't know where she got it from, it was hand written on one of the pages. She must have read it somewhere and written it down. SO TRUE

We may live without poetry,

music and art;

We may live without conscience,

and live without heart;

We may live without friends, we

may live without books;

But civilized man cannot live

without cooks.
