New recipe blog
I'm working on a new recipe blog.I haven't updated my old one in ages so I thought I'd just start fresh with all my old ones and some GREAT new recipes I've found. I love trying the new stuff but it's funny how I go back again and again to all my old favorites. I made a taco salad recipe yesterday that I've had for more than 20 years and it still tastes great and brings back many memories of my family,friends and so many dofferent occasions. When I make certain dishes I can literally put myself back at that Christmas dinner or one of the (many!) baby showers that we've had through the years. Those are very special memories for me.It's funny how we can taste a food and be transported back to a certain time or even a feeling. So,anway I'm going to work on that new blog hopefully soon. I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday weekend! Back to the normal day to day.;p
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
