Happy Sunday Everyone!

We wish you all a happy family gathering time! Is it hot where you are? We are really having  the heat here in South Louisiana. Temps today 103 degrees and everything is banned! Watering, car washing, etc. Burning and no fireworks! Stiff fines for violating the law. So, everyone is very upset about this, but what can you do? Better safe than sorry, huh?
  Our little grilling was done early trying to beat the heat, but it was 89 degrees at 6 am! Here's pics of what we managed to grill and cook in this heat.

I baked the cake last evening. It is a plain layer with butter pecan filling and frosting.

I didn't make the sauce this time around. It is "Sweet Baby Ray's" that was purchased at the market and very good

I didn't have everything for the eggs and didn't want to go to the store,  so I used Dijon and herbs. They were good! The cherry tomatoes are from Mom's bush she planted in a container.


  I'm not a big fan of smoked meats, so hubby only prepared enough for the two of them. I baked a cake, deviled eggs, made mac-n-cheese, and had baked chicken from the deli. Although I didn't cook it all in my kitchen, we do have a nice meal. Sometimes, you have to make do.
  Wishing everyone peace and happiness... please be safe in your travels! Until the next time...Keep Smiling! Hugs!



  1. Yum!! Your food always looks so good. Sounds like it's just too hot to do anything. At least we don't have the humidity here, but temps are expected to be about 90 tomorrow...worse at home..over 100.
    Have a nice holiday and try to stay cool:-)

  2. It's a Happy Sunday indeed and your feast looks so good. It was nice you got an early start to beat the heat. Everything looks so yummy and I got my eye on the cake and lots more :-)

  3. My goodness that's hot! Here on Long Island we are suffering if it gets as high as 90 and that's not that often. Your meal looks delicious!

  4. Your cake is beautiful! And I love deviled eggs and mac and cheese too!
