More fall cooking!

This weekend I am making apple butter in the crockpot (thank you very much, and apple fritters! I can't wait until I wake up in the morning and the whole house is filled with the smell of apple-y goodness.

My mama didn't make these kind of things while I was growing up, although she does make some kick-butt (!) fried chicken, lasagna, and german chocolate cake. I want my girls to grow up with a good sense of how to make their families happy. While I am definitely not one of those ladies who is submissive and compliant, I do want my family to know I put my best on the table for them everytime I can.

On a more somber note, no promotion for me...this time around. I took my day to be pissed off and hurt over it, and I am okay now. I feel like it really must be a 'third times a charm' kind of thing for me. We'll see, I don't know when there will be another spot open for me to interview but I'll be ready!!

*P.S. Do any of you have favorite recipes that your mama's made for you? I always love remembering my mama and my mawmaw (grammy) cooking for all of us when we were kids.

P.P.S. Go Colts, Go Cowboys, Go RedSox!!!


  1. I'm sorry about the promotion, friend. Bummer.

    And my mom doesn't cook. Period. And neither, frankly, do I. But mmmmm fried chicken mmmmm. I'm coming over now ;)

  2. When I left home, I sat down and copied out scads of my mom's recipes.

    Some of them are now my kids' favorites. But I STILL don't make them as well as grandma does.


  3. @Aunt Becky-thanks, I'm keeping my head up! I don't cook during the week hardly at all, it is just when I'm home all day.

    @The Mother-I totally get where you're coming from. I will never make lasagna as good as my mama's.
