If you're a long time reader here at Diane's Place you're familiar with the Sunday Dinner graphic there at the left. If so, you're also familiar with that question mark and what it represents.
I ain't cookin' no Sunday Dinner this week. I don't know where we'll end up eating or what, but I'm all cooked, partied, snacked and celebrated out.
Don't misunderstand me; I love the holidays as much as anybody, but enough is enough and I'm about on overload here.
Whether you're actually cooking Sunday Dinner this week or going to Grandma's or eating out, if you'd like to participate this week share your plans in the comments.We had a wonderful Christmas and I am more than blessed.

with their television. My in-laws are the
proud owners of one of the oldest console
TV's in captivity. It's 25 years old and
has an actual channel selector and
knobs. Here's Emmy examining their
Born in the age of television remote
controls, Emmy had never seen a real
live console TV with knobs.
I guess I should say, she'd never really
noticed the knobs because she's been

Y'all have a blessed Sunday. May God bless you with all you need, and enough to share.PS: I feel somewhat pretentious using this particular signature graphic,
considering that the high here today was 75F and we were under a

Ah, weather in Northeast Arkansas.
You want variety?
