I know most all of you are following my blog for the recipes!  I promise that I have not stopped cooking…  My time lately has been making an all hand sewn felt pennant for my oldest son, Bobby.  Chad and I are so proud of his hard work!  Not only has he done so well academically but has earned a scholarship for long snapping at Pearl River Community College!!!  Way to go, Bobby!!!  I have thought about making a tutorial on how I made it.  If anyone is interested, just let me know.  Right now, I am making one for my youngest son Abe who is in the 6th grade and his first year as a Pascagoula Panther!!!  I will get the recipes back up and going VERY soon!!!

I am in the process of procrastinating on writing a cook book and even more so on illustrating it myself.  I have designed the cover which includes my plates, blue willow, my dining chair backs, my back yard chickens,  and fresh vegetables straight from my garden as well as my Louisiana Stainless.   When I thought of incorporating my art into my cook book, I thought that actually using elements from my very own kitchen, home, and garden would be great!!!  The pictures below are the  beginning stages of what I am working on!!!

     Several years ago, I decided to hand paint apron’s for my two best friends for Christmas.  We have such a good time in the kitchen!!!  The apron’s sort of speak for themselves….  Of course the food is ALWAYS good….  lots of tasting, talking, and most of all, laughing until we have tears in our eyes!!!   There is always a splash of wine… more laughing…more eating… and planning what we will eat next!!!  My friends are all excellent cooks hence the thought behind painting the aprons.  Now, if I will ever slow down enough to paint one for myself!!!!
