Believe it or not, I already have my Sunday Dinner menu well in hand this week. I boiled some eggs and some whole potatoes in the jackets and they're cooling in a big pot of cold water so they'll be ready to peel in a little while. Those will become homemade potato salad after I add some mayonnaise, chopped onion, sweet pickle and dill pickle relish and few other ingredients.
I have a pot of white beans (Great Northern beans to you non-Southerners) that I just seasoned with salt and a little oil. They're cooling now to go into the fridge for the night.
I'm also going to make some of my TEXAS HASH (click on the bold link to go to the recipe on MY RECIPE BLOG). To save a little time in the kitchen tomorrow I'll cook the hamburger and onion tonight and refrigerate it until I get home from church tomorrow afternoon.
As soon as I get home from church the beans will go on the stove to warm while I'm cooking the macaroni for the TEXAS HASH. As soon as the macaroni gets done I'll drain it then add the ground beef and onion, a big can of diced tomatoes and the seasonings. By the time the Texas hash comes together the beans should be warm so all we'll have to do is pull the tater salad out of the fridge and set the table.
So there you have it: White beans, TEXAS HASH and a big bowl of my homemade tater salad is what's on the menu at Diane's Place for Sunday Dinner.
What are you doing for Sunday Dinner this week? If you want to play along just share your plans/menu in the comments.
Daddy died of cancer right before Christmas in
2004 and we love him and miss him still.
I don't know if I've ever posted any
of these pictures before.
Sorry these are so dark and grainy.
They're all scanned and some are over
30 years old.
My sister Ducky took this picture at her
trailer in Blytheville, Arkansas, Summer '72.
That's me holding Ducky's son, Danny,
Cecil squeezed in between me and Mom,
and Daddy. I was 8 and Cecil was 7 here.I love this picture of Mom and Dad.
I took this picture in the Summer of '85.
Notice the cigarette in Daddy's hand?
He died of cancer that metastasized to his entire body.This next one was taken in March 1986 on
Mom and Dad's anniversary.

Lamar's Dad was out of the picture when he was growing up. Wayne and Lamar made peace about 20 years ago and Wayne died this past October. Wayne lived in Fort Worth, Texas and we live in Northeast Arkansas, so for the most part they'd had a long distance relationship the last 2o years. Not terribly distant, but not all that close either. Lamar did see his Dad when he went to Fort Worth to visit his brother, Mark. Jessica goes to Little Rock early Monday morning for her appointment about her bad pap smear. She has to be there at 7:30 am so she'll have to leave here at 4:30 am. I'm going to keep Emmy all night tomorrow night and all day Monday, until Jessica gets home from her appointment.
Your prayers will be welcomed and greatly appreciated as Jessica travels back and forth, and as the doctors do tests and decide what needs to be done for Jessica. Thanks in advance, because I know I can count on y'all to hold Jessica in your thoughts and pray for her.
I'll let y'all know just as soon as possible if we find out anything Monday, but I really think they'll order more tests and it'll probably be several days or longer before we find out anything new.
I still have to make my tater salad and cook that burger and onion for tomorrow, so I'll post this and wish a wonderful Father's Day to all the guys who read my blog. I know there are several, though they don't always comment.
May God meet all your needs, and may you have enough to share is my prayer for you all.
