Good Ole' Southern Dinner

Good evening lovely people, It has been a spell since I posted. You see, we had some problems after that storm that came through. The computer went to acting up, I couldn't get on the web. Course, you know they are closed over the weekend, so I had to wait. After they fussed over it over the phone, they finally gave up and sent a fellow out here to make the repairs. 

Loretta is doing a little better. Losing her friend like that was hard especially since she'd just talked to her. Lord, you never know when its your time, huh? My mother-in-law, bless her, has really been taking good care of us. This was our Sunday dinner she cooked. Loretta wanted greed beans with potatoes, (I think she can eat them every day) and Greek chicken. My mother-in-law made the best sweet tea, I had to give her a big bear hug!

She tried following Loretta's recipe but ended up making it her way. (I knew she would do it when she kept fussing) but, it was still good.  I wanted a pear salad, but I forgot to tell her I'd eaten the last of the cheese. See how I got my salad. Hahahaha! See where Loretta get her humor!

 Nothing fancy, just good ole eatin'! The old fashioned hot water cornbread was really tasty!

I added some creamy dressing to the salad and cracked some pepper

Then, it was on!

  When I asked granny where's the dessert, she held up her little finger. Hahahaha! That old gal kills me! Anyway, dinner was finger-lickin' good, but I show miss Loretta's desserts!

  Ya'll keep Loretta in your thoughts, it helps more than you know!
Hope you have a blessed evening. I'm signing off now, take good care!

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... Are you sure? Are you very sure? That when you asked for dessert... You who are supposed to eat very, very, very well!
    That when you asked for dessert, she didn't hold up the middle finger of her right hand?!?!?! Hmmmm? Hmmmm? Hmmmm?
