It is a cool, drizzly Saturday morning. Hubby is off to work by 6 am and I go back to bed for 2 hours. I wake, get MIl's breakfast and meds, kids are still asleep. I decide it's a perfect time for the Farmers Market. I haven't been in quite a while. I am excited to see what they have for MORE

About Me
I'm Quickly sliding toward my 50's. I have a loving husband that I have been with for 22 years and counting! We have 3 wonderful children and are semi empty nesters. I am Enjoying this time of my life! We have 2 dogs. I am a lunch lady at a high school 3 blocks from my driveway.
My favorite things to cook
I Love to BBQ and Grill and the family seems to love it as much as I do! :] I pretty much cook everything. I love to try new things... Like out of cookbooks and such, although some do fail miserably! i keep trying anyway.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving Dinner. Which always includes oyster stuffing (delicious) I ONLY make it at Thanksgiving. My family recommends it. I make mashed potatoes that my mother-in-law taught me, and she's been making them that way for YEARS! They are delectable! :D
My cooking triumphs
I could say that my green chicken enchiladas never fail. They are pretty triumphant. hahaha
My cooking tragedies
There have been some downers, and heartaches. I really can't name them all but one was one that I found in a cooking mag. that my family HATED. I will never do it again... but I can't seem to remember what it was... and I don't think I want to!!! I make a mean grilled pizza and am working on my bread making skills thanks to this site! I am forever addicted to the people and recipes on here! OXOXO ):
