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

Save-Your-Marriage Supper

I wish I had a dollar for every time I've made this dish. This is perfect for couples, singles, large or small families. Adjust the recipe accordingly. If you have children leave the dinner in the foil packages, poke holes in the top of the foil to let the steam escape. They love their dinner in a pouch. Make a salad, bake the bread and your marriage is saved.

Save-Your-Marriage Supper
Serves 2 servings

1 large baking potato
2 lamb shoulder chops
1 teaspoon dried herb mixture (recipe follows)
2 large or 4 small carrots
1 medium onion, sliced
1 medium green pepper, quartered
Salt and Pepper to taste, (House Seasoning is better)

Rub 1/2 teaspoon dried herb mixture on each chop; let set 20 minutes or overnight is better. Cut two pieces of foil (about 12 x 18 inches). Split potato in half, long ways, and put in center of foil. Place chop on top, stack with other vegetables, and salt and pepper. Fold foil, sealing packages tightly. Bake at 400 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.

Dried Herb Mixture
makes 1 3/4 tablespoons, just double it. You'll use it on everything.

1 tablespoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled

Put all in a small container (4ounce jelly jars are perfect), shake container to mix. Use as needed.
