I've been sitting here in front of the computer for an hour trying to decide what to cook for Sunday Dinner, and I finally came to a decision. We're having one of my faithful standbys, HAMBURGER SOUP and MY HOMEMADE PAN BREAD. (Click on the bold links to go to the recipes on MY RECIPE BLOG.)
What's on the agenda for your Sunday Dinner? Share your plans/menu in the comments if you want to participate this week.One reason it was so hard for me to decide what to cook for Sunday Dinner is that I'm full as a tick!
My sister CECIL'S hubby Brian has been gone for 6 weeks training for a new job, and he was home for the weekend. He's living 3 hours away and has been taking classes and testing for his job. Brian wanted to get together for supper tonight before he has to go back to work tomorrow, so he and Cecil invited me and Lamar and Brian's sister and her son to eat out, Brian's treat. We went to a local Japanese hibachi grill restaurant in Jonesboro and the food was great!
Cecil was nice enough to drive me to one of our favorite specialty coffee shops so I could get a white mocha (with 4 shots! Not that I'm hyped up on caffeine or anything like that!) before we came home, and that definitely contributed to the fullness factor.
But for some reason, because I'm so full nothing sounded good for Sunday Dinner. Does that ever happen to you? When I'm full nothing sounds good, but when I'm hungry almost anything sounds good.
Thanks Brian and Cecil for the supper! It was great, and so was the company. :-)Lamar's family reunion went well this past weekend, and the last of his out-of-state family left going back to Michigan on Tuesday evening. Between visiting with family and some other events I'll share in a bit, it's been extra busy around here this week.
I took quite a few pics this past week and I'll share some of them with you.
This pic was taken at the actual reunion the Saturday
before Easter. That's Lamar's brother, Mark,
in the center of the pic in the black shirt,
sitting down.This is Mark and Lamar.
evening at a buffet in Paragould, Arkansas.
We'd never been there before but I have to
say, it was excellent. They had fried catfish,
fried chicken and all the trimmings, plus
much more than I can name here.
That's Lamar's cousin and his daughters
from Dearborn, Michigan in the first pic.The next one is Lamar's Mom and 3 of her sisters.
Lamar's Mom is the one on the back right.
The one seated is the one visiting from Michigan.After we all said our goodbyes, the Michigan
crew left from the restaurant on their long
drive home to Dearborn.These pictures were taken on Easter Sunday
of Jessica, Jason and Emmy. They left church
Sunday morning going to be with Lamar's
family before we could take any pictures
with my side of the family.Jessica and Emmy.And a few that were taken in our yard
this past Tuesday. Emmy loves being
outside, as you might gather from
My sister Sue and Emmy.Still working on that "learning to walk" thing...And I had to throw one in of Grandma and Emmy.
Yay! Only thing, most of the things in there had to be moved to get the new freezer in there, then moved again after the freezer was settled into its final place. Bless her heart, Jessica worked like a fiend, sweeping, mopping and moving things.
Thanks, babe! :-)
After the dust settled, literally, and everyone was gone, I got in there and did some rearranging, sorting, tossing and more cleaning. I'm pretty satisfied with things in there now. My nephew Danny and his wife Mikki came and picked up my old chest freezer to use until it kicks out or they get a better one.
The old freezer still has a lot of use left in it but I've wanted an upright for a long time, and my dear, sweet, handsome, intelligent and loving son in law, Jason, got me a good deal on this new one. He's an assistant manager at a rent to own place and he's been keeping an eye out for me for a freezer.
Thanks, babe! :-)
But, after getting my new freezer settled in, my fridge was looking awful compared to my clean new freezer, so I
Thanks, babe! :-)Coming up next week I have a Steven Curtis Chapman CD giveaway planned, so be sure to check back in to see if you might be interested. Here's a link to a video of CINDERELLA, one of the new songs from the CD I'll be giving away.Whew! That was a marathon! I'll try to make time to post more often rather than heaping a whole week's worth of posts on you at once.
Y'all have a blessed Sunday. May God meet all your needs, and may you have enough to share.
