Four Generations


Last Sunday we met my parents, Grandma and some other relatives for lunch on Mother's Day.  We almost walked out of the restaurant without taking this shot.

Can you believe it never occurred to us to take a four generation photo?  I'm glad I had my camera and made everyone get together right before we left.  The guys even got together for a "guy" photo, but I won't show you that one, you can pretty much tell they were miserable just having their photo taken.



Afterwards we visited some friends who happen to live right next to the restaurant we were at - many hours later we were back on the road!

The little man is such a stud.  Just check out his sunglasses and him crossing his leg like he's 45.  Love it.



While browsing around today, I happened to come across two recipes for homemade doughnuts.  So of course that meant I had to make some too.

Stay tuned.  These are either going to be really, really good or utterly horrible.  I'm hoping not the latter.  Do you eat doughnuts?  At least in your dreams?  I hope so.



Being a food blogger brings many opportunities.  Some good, some bad.  Its actually quite comical opening up my inbox sometimes.  I'll get random inquiries from kooks from around the country.  Many I ignore {sorry, but some of them aren't even worth developing a relationship with}, but many I listen to and reply back to.

In a couple of weeks I'll be working with Del Monte.  Developing a few recipes with some of their product.  Oh, and giving my readers some of their product too, did I forget to mention that?





Okay, tomorrow I'm spending ALL day in my friend's kitchen.  I think I've mentioned this but she is about 56 weeks pregnant with twins.  Like ready to pop any day.  Any minute.  So I am going over to her house, turning my kids loose to play with her daughter and making a zillion meals to stock her freezer.

Everything from soup, to marinated meat for the grill this summer, to breakfast burritos and loaves of banana bread.  I'm going to make sure her and her babies aren't hungry!

I'm doing this for my sister in a couple of weeks as well - she has a full-time job, two teenagers and a ridiciously crazy schedule with no time to cook or meal plan.

Maybe I should turn this into a little side business:)

    Great Idea Ally! I've thought about offering to do that for people as well, especially for expecting moms. I think they would totally take anyone up on the offer, I know I would.
