This week’s Sunday Supper was so-Southern, so yummy and the the perfect end to an all around great day. I’ve made the meal a couple of times in the last year – both recipes come from Southern Living – and it not only does it smell divine baking away in the crock pot, but it’s pretty darn tasty to boot. And never fear, as with most everything I cook, only your basic culinary skills are required. So head to your kitchens, don your aprons and put some South in your mouth, y’all!

16-ox. package frozen field peas with snaps

This fed my lot of hungry boys and we’ve plenty more for leftovers tonight. Yippee!
Unlike last month where I had to fess up to my vampire addiction, I return with a much more respectful book… Boys Should be Boys: 7 Secrets to Raising Healthy Sons by Meg Meeker. While most of the book is really just common sense, it always helps me to reground myself in written words. As… Read More
I truly consider myself to be practical in product selection. I wear Bare Minerals makeup, use Purpose moisturizer and Oil of Olay cleanser. I do, however, once a year, splurge on Bumble and Bumble hair care products. Sister introduced me to this line three years ago and it was love at first shampoo. Oh my,… Read More
Last weekend we found ourselves in desperate need of a baby sitter on very short notice. Honey’s favorite Uncle J and sweet Aunt S were visiting from Texas and we wanted to enjoy a meal and conversation with them in a way that we couldn’t do with two littles in tow. So, I promptly called… Read More
Okay, so I’m kind of stifling my laughter over here as I, once again, consider the topic of pajama jeans. Remember my night out with bestie F and the five things I deemed you need to know? Well, last night besties C, S and I headed out to celebrate her birthday in our traditional fashion… Read More
Nine months into our basement renovation (just longer than the time it took me to bake a real live baby I’ll have you know), Honey continues to not only make remarkable progress, but to impress me with his construction prowess. While much of his work down yonder consists of things that don’t make much of… Read More
Hopsy over at Kappa Prep hosts the first blog I ever followed. (I learned of her on the Martha Stewart Lilly Pulitzer anniversary episode back in March of 2009. A delightful pairing of two of my very favorite things, it goes down in history as my number one hour of television to date.) So for… Read More
