Grown Children & Home Cooking

Today, AB phoned to wish me a happy birthday (such a sweet boy) and check to see if I received the gifts, two books, he sent my way. I've received one, Amish Society by John A. Hostetler, but still waiting on the mailman for the other.

During the course of our conversation, I inquired as to whether he's peeked into the blog lately - as it's a good way for those who live far away to keep up with things around here. His response was, "No". So, I began telling him about the updates I've posted since his last peek. Well, I, of course, went over our two week planned supper menu. Even though his favorite, spaghetti, isn't on the list, he still began drooling. (AB says mom's cooking is the best part of visiting home.) He got really excited about the tuna casserole and commented, "I haven't had tuna casserole in YEARS". So, tomorrow evening when I cook the tuna casserole, I'll post the recipe with a photo, or maybe two, so he can prepare it anytime he gets a hankering for it (hankering is southern for a craving).
In the above photo, he's preparing hamburgers and hot dogs for the cookout we had while visiting grandpa's cabin last summer. I am proud to say that he's turned out to be quite the cook. I really miss him and his lovely wife, KM. I wish they lived closer to us. I anxiously await Christmas time for their visit home.


  1. Ok, I feel just awful!! How could I have missed wishing you a Happy Birthday!!!??!!!

    TB ~ Please accept my sincerest apology for letting this slip by unnoticed. I am so sorry.

    H-A-P-P-Y B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y !!

  2. LOL - LOL - LOL - Laughing really, really hard ... please don't feel bad ... Monday wasn't even my real b-day. AB was ALSO late ... but I'm not complaining as he's the only family member who even remembered! - Not even Mr. B remembered ... he was busy thinking about his deer lease, hee, hee.
    Everyone forgetting just keeps me younger. Has anyone ever told you about the REAL fountain of youth? Whenever your b-day is forgotten, then you don't age another year - YOU GET TO STAY THE SAME AGE!! & at my age - that is a REAL blessing! When figured up all the years of forgotten b-days, that made me only 29!
    Awe, seriuosly - thank you so much for the happy wishes.

  3. Is the 18th your birthday too? We share a birthday, sweet sister!!
    Happy birthday!!! (((hug))) Belated as it is... ;)
