Looking For A Really Special Dinner Plan?

Hi Sweet and Wonderful Girlies!

Thank you so much for all the Hubbs' Birthday wishes.....

I printed out about 12 Happy Birthday signs on the computer and added artwork....after Prince Charming went to sleep I put them everywhere he'd go in the morning.....Yes, as a matter of fact, I WAS still sleeping......gotta get enough zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's!   :-)   I even put one in his laptop so when he opened it at work there would be a little birthday cheer.

And, we went out for Sushi....one of our favorites!  Gotta love some raw fish.    :-)


Now, about these recipes.....As I've said many times before, I'm not exactly the Queen of the Kitchen, if you know what I mean.  There are a few things that I make reallly well and then there's the REST.  :-)    YIKES!

Hmmmmmmmm...........I'm thinking I probably won't roast a squirrel anytime soon.

I used to collect vintage cookbooks...........now there's some fun!

I sold them several years ago on eBay....but I had these old pix in my stash.


Now, if you're in a rush, here are some time savers.

I especially like the Fricassee of Canned Whole Chicken.  YUM!   :-)

Don'tcha ever say I'm not full of good ideas now, will 'ya?


I'm soooo excited!  The BIG WEDDING is this weekend!

Well, actually it's just teeny-tiny, but we have a bride and groom that are over the moon.  Do you remember me telling you about Bobby and Susan?  My dear Hubbs has known Bobby since childhood.....we played cupid and introduced him to my sweet friend, Susan........And, the rest they say, is history!

I'm going to do the flowers for them, so I'll be putting them together on Friday......

I'll have pix next week.

And, my precious little Grandson is getting an award at school tomorrow---


Now, this is an accomplishment.  I'm so thrilled.  I wouldn't miss that for the world.

Bless his little heart.  I soooo adore this child.

Now, all of you little sweeties make it a great day!

God made it especially for YOU!


Huge huggies....

    Busy girl.

    Have fun and God bless.

  5. I'm so proud of your grandson! That's wonderful news, Spence.

    And I'm glad your hubby had a good B-day. Those recipes are a hoot, and I know he loves the squirrel. NOT! LOL!

    Sheila :-)

  6. can't wait to see photos of the wedding...congrats to the grandson on his award...

  7. You have a way of making the day start with smiles. I got such a kick out of those old recipes. My grandma used to fry sqirrel, though and as a child I had to struggle to eat it.
    Congrats to your friends and will look forward to pictures....that is just so sweet.
    Also congratulations to your grandson. That is a great accomplishment.
    Thanks for visiting me this week. Glad you liked my black and white window coverings.

  8. G'morn, Spencer ~ Not in your OR my lifetime would I try any of those recipes. Congrats on DHs birthday, what a wonderful award for the dimpled darling gr-son & joyous fun for the newlyweds.

    Happy St Patrick's Day
    Have a lovely weekend.
    TTFN ~Marydon

  9. I can't imagine being in such dire straits that I'd have to dine on squirrel, although I have eaten rabbit. ;-)

    Looking forward to your wedding flower pics.

  10. It would take a lot of squirrels to feed my family! I suppose there's a time and place for everthing though. Hope I don't every find myself there. LOL!

    Have a wonderful weekend. I'm sure the wedding will be beautiful. I like small intimate weddings. Give our best to the newlyweds.


Sweet and dear little Chickies....thank you so much for your comments. I read each and every one. I always try to make a return visit........sometimes I fail miserably... but you're alllll soooo special to me!

Many, many hugs!
