    Tonight the girls and I went to a banquet for the leadership program my oldest was in this week through JCC. They had it catered through golden corral and it was very tasty.

    I really enjoyed the green beans, mashed taters, gravy and roll very much. The green beans had that yummy southern stuff in them that gives them a salty bacony taste that I had never had until I moved to NC. The first time I saw fatback on the shelf in food lion I thought it was soap. lol

    And kudos to Johnston County Community College and their Workforce Development Center. They did an excellent job hosting this 1 week program for high schoolers and my daughter loved it!

    raesmom1612 - sending many more hugs.

    jdouglas13 - Yay for bakes ziti! That may be on the menu this weekend when it cools down a bit.

    Yes mom is super excited that we are coming and Rae talks about "Bufo" everyday lol

    Jdouglas ~ thanks, I'm sure I will call or text you before I go. And YAY on the Baked ziti........I had some for lunch today :)

    Thanks for the virtual hugs and well wishes for mom. Although she had a double leg amputation her spirits are pretty high which is good. Keep us in your prayers, she still has a long way to go.

    Raesmom, so nice to see you. I know how much you're looking forward to seeing your Mom. If don't talk to you before then, have a wonderful trip. :)

    Not to start a riot or anything, but tonight is going to be baked ziti, Italian sausage, garlic bread, and salad with freshly roasted red peppers. Looking forward to it, especially if I can convince my sister to make the garlic bread and salad.

    Hey yall I'm back :)

    Yesterday Rae and I made cupcakes in honor of RFB's bday :) Dinner was creamy pork chops in the oven with yellow rice and green beans (or beans stalks as Rae calls them)

    Tonight at the request of Rae we will be having pasta with meat sauce and left over cupcakes.

    Had to take a break from the blog bc I was going through a lot with mom and myself. We are heading up there 4th of July weekend to see her and the rest of the family. Cant wait :)

    YBAVERAGE2003- that plum tart sounds amazing!

    Tonight I'm making salads using the grass-fed sirloins from the Farmer's Market.

    Time to grill some chicken breast (Aldi, $2.29/lb), zucchini & yellow squash (also on sale at Aldi) and maybe make some cous cous. Going to make a plum tart (plums on sale at Aldi too) for dessert !
