My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

tuneful recipes

In the comments to my last post, both by email and on the blog several of you asked about the recipes for my soup and pie.

The more or less basic recipe for the Portuguese Bean Soup can be found on Diane's Recipe Blog here. Mine isn't just like her "recipe"...matter of fact, neither is hers as she & I share the cooking trait of never making things the same way twice! And don't ask cuz I have NO IDEA what I did to that pot.

As for the sour cream and raisin pie, that's easier. Because Subvet made it and he almost ALWAYS go exactly according to a recipe.

This recipe can be found in one of our Heirloom Cook Books....This particular book, based on its age was probably first my grandmother's. I got it from my mother when we moved into our house. Hubby has used it many times and always with very good results! Some things just can not be improved upon! Although he does say that some of the recipes use things that are hard to find such as a potato ricer or cake flour.

I took the kids back to the fountain park on Monday....AND I took my new camera too! So stay tuned for some fun pictures in a day or two!

In the meantime, I'm linking my Lafayette, La post to GrandmaK (aka Cathy)'s weekly linky fun Adventure Tour Express! Looking for a new place to visit? Just been somewhere fun you'd like to share? Come on down and link up too.

This would be perfect for people like LINDA who are always traveling around and blogging about the fun places they've been. ;-)

Off to bed before another 2 nights of work! Y'all enjoy your soup and pie......just remember, every fart must be followed by the acknowledgement that "I squashed a duck!"

I look forward to the pics!

My cousins always had a "rule" in their house; if anyone farted, "They could call out, 'Fart Freedom!'" and no one would bat an eyelash. It was awesome.

I have that cookbook. One is older than I am (was my mother's) and I got a new copy at Cracker Barrel! It has some really good recipes.
