Getting Ready for the Wedding

I’m going to take the the week off because I’m getting ready for the wedding! Pete & Andi will be tying the knot in a matter of days and I’ve got so much to do! But before I go I want to tell you all about how things have gone since the kids first announced they were getting married.

Early Morning Heartbreak

Almost every day I get up before the sun and take a cup of coffee to the front porch. I sit and listen to the birds and watch the bats in their last frantic effort to feed before sunrise. But my real reason for sitting out front instead of in back is that I can watch our foxes romping on the wide expanse of grass across the road. That was not the case this morning. Instead of enjoying the beginning of the day it was early morning heartbreak for me.

Dijon Swiss Cheese Cream Sauce

If you want a delicious sauce that works equally well on chicken, beef or fish you need to try my Dijon Swiss Cheese Cream Sauce! It’s a rich, silky sauce that turns an ordinary entrée into something special!

Simple Woman’s Chicken Cordon Bleu

Every once in a while I want to make something really special for dinner. But I’m a simple woman. So I created Simple Woman’s Chicken Cordon Bleu as one of the dishes I turn to on those occasions. It’s sumptuous, delicious, and still inexpensive and easy enough for me to make.

Memories of My Father

It doesn’t take Father’s Day for me to have memories of my father. I think about both of my parents daily. Although Daddy has been gone for 25 years now the things we did together are still fresh in my memory. He was an excellent father and the times we spent together are treasures I keep close.

In The Vegetable Garden

With the flower beds in front of the house looking so much better I was feeling pretty good about the work so far this summer Even after getting rid of the weeds and planting the first round of new flowers there was still work going on out there. But in the vegetable garden things were not going well at all!

A Very Busy, Happy Day

We all have days that are very busy and we all have days that are very happy. Unfortunately sometimes those days aren’t the same day. But I just had a day that was a very busy, happy day! And it made me think about what I need to do to have more days like it.
