I'm back!

Our trip was filled with multiple stops at Steak 'n Shake and the local ice cream stand. I worked hard and felt more physically fit, but found that I had gained a few pounds when I returned home. Muscle weighs more that fat, right! We had a good time eating out and taking turns cooking in Grandma's kitchen one last time.

I didn't end up making anything new while I was away, but I'll be looking for some recipes to share with you soon. Until then I give you some food for thought:

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity. ~Voltaire

Amen to that!

Far, Far Away

I've been gone now from home (far, far away) for over a week and have several more days to go on my trip. I went to help my mom and her siblings clear out Grandma's house and get it ready to sell.

I am computer-free on this trip, but had fun scheduling posts to get us through the even days of June. Hope you had a good time right along with me.

I will be taking a break from posting recipes until I return. If you are lurking (cause most of you aren't commenting *smile*) then I will probably be back online sometime after the 10th of July. I'm taking a few new recipes to try on my relatives so I should be able to share them with you when I get back.

Until then, enjoy your summer!
