As you can tell, I'm from Georgia---a rather tattered old Southern Belle by now,
but still feisty, I'll have you know!! I've
been married to the same DH for 35 years, and we have two sons. My sweet and lovely
stepdaughter has given us two little grand-
daughters who are the lights of our lives.
We had an antique shop for 7 years back in
the late 80's, and I think we are getting
back into the Biz next month--not a regular
shop again, but just doing some of the shows
once or twice a month. I love to read(I collect biographies),do needlepoint and cross-stitch, go antiqueing, and visit the
grandbabies. My very favorite cookbook is
"The Joy of Cooking" by Irma Rombauer. I got
it at my first bridal shower, and it's still the best for just basic good cooking.
I have tried to get rid of most of my pet
peeves in the hope that other people will
overlook my many faults if I overlook theirs--that's not to say that I don't want
to scream at people who are in the turn lane and don't watch for the turn arrow, but, hey, I have my windows rolled up and
they can't hear me, can they?? Since we are
retired, I have the month off thingie, but
if I had the $$$, I would take the train ride across Canada from Montreal to British
Columbia, visit with I hope our-soon-to-be
in-laws in Vancouver, drive down the Cali-
fornia coast to visit relatives in San Diego
then drive across the U.S. stopping to see
whatever we wanted to see.
Can't go too long with-
out potatoes of some kind, and pork roasts-
oh, we just love it all!! I really enjoy making fancy desserts most of all. I am more tolerant of something taking a long time to make if it looks pretty and
is sweet. The thing I am always asked to
bring to every family gathering is Praline
Pecan Pie and my Grandmother Strickland's
Southern Cornbread Dressing. I always have to make extras so they can take some home or
I'm ostrasized!! My favorite restaurant is
the Olive Garden--may be a bit low brow, but
their tomato sauce is the best and we love
and adore Italian cooking--I'm just not as crazy about spending long hours in the kit-
chen making it when I can go out.(so what am
I doing here, you might ask??) I do still
enjoy cooking fancy or really "Southern" when we have company.
