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

Amazing - Feel Good Friday Again

No doubt you are sick of hearing about green beans, corn, cabbage etc. However, I did get 60 ears of corn in the freezer this week and there are 20 cases of Mason jars sitting on my "back porch". Enough of that it's Feel Good Friday.

Sometimes the things that make us happy or "feel good" are great or funny memories. Some things are funny and somethings are hilarious. This to me was hilarious, but maybe you had to be there.

Eight or nine years ago I had mouth cancer and because of the chemo and radiation treatments I couldn't talk for several months. As you can imagine everyone was thrilled.

When I would go shopping or any place I always had my little dry erase board with me in case I had to ask someone a question. On this particular day I was in a department store looking for t-shirts in x-small, which I couldn't find. A really sweet young lady ask if she could help. I wrote on my board what I needed and gave it to her. She wrote back that I should follow her and she would show me where they were. I erased all of that and wrote that my hearing was fine. She wrote back and said she was glad to hear that. I said you don't have to write on the board and she wrote, okay.

I looked at her, she looked at me and we started laughing so hard we both had to sit down. People actually came up to us and ask if we were alright.

Every time I think of this I can't help but laugh. Even in bad times there is always something to laugh and feel good about.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend. See you next week.

  5. I am laughing so hard at that! what a great story... totally something I would do too.

    And by the way, I do not EVER get sick of your stories about your garden and vegetables. I feel like I live vicariously through you and your posts take me to a happy place. REALLY!!!

    I swear I could live in a small town except for one teeny tiny thing. I need 2 Targets about 5 miles on either side of me. See my dilemma?

  6. Bev - You are so honestly funny. I'm so glad you are my friend.
