For some reason, Chef Luigi's computer won't let me crop photos to put on his blog - so here are some from my netbook for you to see.  The other peeps will be putting more on the photo pages.
Carrie, sassy, Mike, bellepepper and midwestchef

Thank you, thank you, mwc! Hubs and I had a great time at the Bash yesterday! So fun to see our AR friends and we were happy to meet Carrie and her hubby! Love it when new peeps come to join us! Looking forward to our next gathering!

You put on a super bash, midwestchef! Your brand new house and your all your personal touches were wonderful! What impressed me the most is the organization of your utensils! You could easily compete with Martha what's her name! I think you, Cathill, Magnolia Blossom, Lady Sparkle and mickdee have my wife hooked on these roundups! She really loves all the people she meets. Of course the food makes her happy, too!

Well, thank you, Sir Mike; you are too kind! One might say I have CDO - that's Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in alphabet order - the way it should be. Can you say "anal." Did you give Linda the message about the corn casserole? Have her send me the cherry pie recipe, please.
Jun. 17, 2013 4:34 am
Phoebe, thanks for sharing! Looks like a great time was had by all! Cherry pie, yum, I may need that recipe.

Mike it is nice to see Mrs Mike looking so good. What a happy looking crowd. Cherry Pie? Next year just maybe I will get to make it.

Joey Joan - You must try to come; all the AR roundups/bashes are such fun, as you learned a few weeks ago.

Linda's cherry pie recipe is sugar free (and I usually don't like anything that doesn't have sugar!!) but she used Stevia and it tasted great.

Ya'll be sure to look at sassoldlady's "faux toes" on her photo page; she posted some good ones. Wish we could transfer others photos to our blog...
Jun. 17, 2013 7:52 am
What fun you all had! Nice to see a face for those who wander around the AR halls.
Jun. 17, 2013 8:20 am
What great "faux toes":) !! One of these days I'll surprise everyone (probably even myself, lol! ) and manage a visit. Looks WONDERFUL!!

About Me
Married w/ pets + three kids and six grandkids. Retired after 30 years of teaching grades K-7. Moved to NM 10 years ago. Loved it there. Moved back to Ohio to be closer to family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make soups. Chili, beef vegetable, ham and bean,and tortilla soups are our favs. I like casseroles - one dish dinners are the best! I think the slow cooker is about the best cooking aid in my kitchen. I love to try new recipes, that's what makes this a super website; that and all the cool contributors.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything I did with my grandmother! Thanksgiving at Grandma's house was the best. She wanted to do it all - and she was a great cook. Making taffy with her was such a treat! I remember the first time she made pizza (from a box). She wasn't too sure about pizza! But in the mid 1950's, none of us midwesterners were too sure about pizza!
My cooking triumphs
When I was 13, I entered seven different baked goods (mostly cakes) in open class at the fair, competing against adult cooks with great records. I took first place with all but one entry, which got a second place ribbon.
My cooking tragedies
Looking back over the years, my biggest tragedy was making gravy...but thanks to CindyLepp, it is no longer a challenge! She sent me packets of dry gravy mixes!
