My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. Remember "Gluttony" is a sin, except on Thanksgiving. I know I read that somewhere. Be kind to Uncle Arthur, even if he drinks and talks too much. Don't forget to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade while you're cooking.

Eat, until you think you're going to die.

Take a little nap.

Now it's time to watch those Cowboys, the ones with the cute butts, kick a few Saints behinds. By half-time it will be time for a turkey sandwich and another piece of pie, or cake, or whatever.

That's why it's important to eat early so you can eat twice.

Most importantly let us all remember to thank God for all the blessings in our lives, our family, friends and our many blogging and FB buddies who have become so important to us all.

God Bless You All.

Show up tomorrow, we are making Turkey Bone Gumbo!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving, my friend! I hope your day is filled with love, good food (I know that's gonna be the case!), family, laughter and no tummy aches!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Thanks for checking out our blog. Looking forward to following yours :)
