Love to play golf. I do have one hole in 1 under my belt so far, but not my last I hope. Having a hole in one is something no one can ever take away from me....Just like my Salvation.....No one can ever take it away from me EVER!
Bleed TN Orange and especially Tennessee Basketball & the Lady Vols.
My favorite things to cook
Canning.....I love to do canning. Making a recipe book to pass down to my grand daughters.
I make baskets with some of my canned goods, such as Chow Chow, Pickled Beets, Pickled Green Tomatoes or Pickled Vidallia Onions & My Mock Apple Rings, a big package of pinto beans and a bag of fresh ground corn meal from a meal. There is a mill not far from my house. I wrap it with a big bow as Christmas Presents. My family & friends love to receive one of my baskets as a present.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Fresh Apple Cake
I guess would be the most favorite thing my family loves for me to bake.
I think they would disown me if I did not make one or two for the special holidays, not to mention family gatherings...I always bring one.
My cooking triumphs
My family & friends love my cooking and canning. Canning Pickled Cauliflower. Came up with a recipe 3 years ago because my nephews say I could can anything...they love it. So crunchy and good. They love it spicy.
My cooking tragedies
Don't have many of those....
I make some pickles that I personally hate. I call them my Aunt Bea's Kerosene Pickles from the one episode of Andy Griffith Show. My grown nephews fight over them. I am ashamed to say I make them....however, they love them and I make several cases a year for them. I have had people offer to pay me to make them a batch. My nephews took them to their hunting cabin that his boss owns. They stole just about everything in it except they left a jar of my pickles and his boss was so happy they did not steal them....
We thought that was a hoot when we all got together to fish down in Florida and they told that story.
