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

Marinated Vegetable Appetizers

These are the Marinated Vegetables I referred to in the Drunken Cocktail Hot Dogs post yesterday. They are sooo easy and can be made the day before serving.

A nice addition to this is a small jar of those marinated roasted red peppers that you made. Okay so buy a jar then. I know I forgot to post the recipe.
