Well, it is officially fall. In Pensacola, we are still hitting 90 degrees with over the top humidity. We wear shorts and flip flops all year long. As I matter of fact, I wore a pair of flip flops to church Sunday. They were sparkly flip flops, but flip flops non the less. You can buy a bathing year round in our stores. You can find water floats, sunscreen, coolers, and anything you want with a flamingo on it. As much as I love my Florida life, I need a little fall! I need to pretend that there are pretty fall leaves on the ground. I need to wear boots and a sweater. I want a fire in the fireplace. So instead of having these wonderful fall transitions actually happen, I light an apple caramel candle, make myself a pumpkin spice latte and get a pot of soup simmering on the stove!
Easter is coming! Tradition is rooted in Easter Sunday. Families attend church together to celebrate the Resurrection. After church, families head home to enjoy a beautiful meal together. The finale of the day is the ‘Great Egg Hunt’!
Well, it’s that time when we are all getting our menus together for the Thanksgiving feasts that we will be gorging on very soon. I will have one punk home with Sir Streusel and me. I will take what I can get when it comes to spending time with my punks. I am going to love on him so much that he may sneak out during the night and head back to Raleigh to get away from his “Smother Mother.” Then again he may stay a tad longer after being waited on hand and foot. It’s a good life for the punks when they come home to their Mama and Edna. I wanted to share a veggie dish that is perfect for Thanksgiving, Creamed Corn. I have a freezer full of fresh corn thanks to a cousin that has a huge garden next door to my Daddy and sweet Mama in Mississippi. Daddy picked it for me, Sir Streusel shucked and froze it for me. I must say, it’s a good life for me with my Daddy and Sir Streusel. This dish can also use frozen corn, no worries. Of course I had to sprinkle a little, who am I kidding…a lot of parmesan cheese on top. Life is just better with cheese. Don’t even attempt to tell me different. We can’t be friends if you don’t believe in the power of cheese! When you are making out your grocery list for the big day, add these ingredients. Whatever you do, don’t leave the cheese off the list….I want us to stay friends forever! Continue reading Creamed Corn
