Ever had a Blood Orange? When I was at the new Kroger I picked up a bag. The jury is still out. I have no frame of reference so I am not sure if the way they taste is how they are supposed to taste or maybe I just got a bad batch. They are very sour!
The Cherry Tree in the back yard is in full bloom!
I think it subliminal but when I make my afternoon ice coffee in a Starbuck’s cup it tastes a better. I love watching the milk swirl around just before I give it a good stir.

I am not sure if this is a praise or a concern. I posted about the Starbuck’s in the new Kroger last week. Well the mileage on the trip-o-meter measured exactly .5 miles to the Starbuck’s from the front of my subdivision.

I forget sometimes that I have a camera in my phone. We had to do some running around on Friday evening and we made a stop at Sam’s for staples items and there was a Steak N’ Shake just around the corner. I think this must have been the busiest Steak N Shake on the planet. I have never ever waited 20 minutes for a table at Steak N Shake in my life. It was good though and yea we came home with milkshakes, my hand dipped weapon on hip destruction is the Mocha Shake. I have half of when I get home and them put the other half in the freezer for another night.

There aren't many times you get to witness your parental influence paying off. I got a small glimpse of a bit of mother daughter heritage on Saturday morning. For a while now the DD has been asking for her own recipe binder. It is now on the list for our next trip to the Wal-Mart. She wants to start assembling her own cook book and she want to make sure she get full culinary rights to all her favorite dishes. I am not sure what prompted this spurt of domestic diligence, but she spent the better part of the morning and well into the afternoon going page by page through my recipe binder asking questions, making a list of all the recipe she was staking her claim to and passing over the less desirable ones. She now has her list formulated and on our next trip to the Wal-Mart you can be sure there will be a giant binder in our cart to get her started.
As I watched her diligently make her list and through out the morning answered multiple culinary questions, “What’s a brisket?” or “When was the last time you made that?” and “Did I like that when you made it?”
I was a small thing but I took comfort that traditions are being formed. One day she will have her own binder and her future husband may call out after dinner “Honey did ya write that one down?”
I also saw a future young mother sitting with her future child passing down the family recipes that have been gracing our kitchen table and family gathering for a long long time!
It was good y’all!
Well that’s it for me this week. I can’t believe I got a picture every day!
