A Great Weekend


















My "Sweet Honey" got home yesterday from his hunting trip in Kansas City. My "sweet daughter" and I picked him up from the airport yesterday and then went to eat at Macaroni Grill before heading home. He was worn out from the trip. No deer, but he had a great time. We sure are glad to have him back home. Today we cooked him a Sunday lunch mostly from the garden. He was really wanting some vegetables. He missed my home cooking. I fixed Grilled chicken breast, fresh green beans, fried okra, mashed potatoes, squash casserole, & homemade biscuits. Maranda fixed the squash casserole. It was my favorite out of everything. The day before, she fixed her dad a sour cream pound cake that will melt in your mouth. As you can see, we have already ate half of it. After we ate lunch and cleaned up the kitchen, I got busy and sewed my "sweet grandaughter", Alyssa, a cute little outfit. I really enjoyed making it. She will be so tickled. It was a great weekend.

It's no wonder your hubby had missed your home cooking...look at all that delicious looking food!!! It's a shame he didn't get his deer but I'm sure he still had a great time. My dad was a moose hunter and he'd always go hunting for 1 to 2 weeks this time of year...how exciting it would be when he'd come home with a moose:-)

Love the little outfit you made for Alyssa...it's so darling, she's sure to love it! I wish I could sew but hemming pants is about the only thing I do with a needle and thread! lol xoxo

Sounds delicious. I've been to the Macaroni Grill once and it was great. But your home cooked meal looks and sounds even better!

I luv Alyssa's new outfit! I hope to see you this weekend. I will only be there on Sunday. Charlie will be there all weekend though. We are staying until Monday afternoon because Charlie's dad is having surgery on Monday morning. I can't wait to see you.

Hi,
I've looked at all that homemade food and my mouth is watering - especially for some of those biscuits!
I notice you have a grandbaby on the way - me too - May!!
Thank you for your visit and I do hope you'll come back again.
