A Little Catching Up

Monday, of course, was Memorial Day so what better way to kick off the summer than with a b-b-q. Of course there's nothing like firing up a hot grill in almost 100* weather to put you in the mood to celebrate. However, when it involves food, we'll make the sacrifice!

Last night was graduation for our high school seniors. It was such an honor to watch these young adults walk across the stage to receive their diploma, some of whom you've known since they were youngsters. it was a joyous occasion yet a little saddening as well. When you look across the field and know that some students, that should be there, are just breaks your heart. Some may be missing due to untimely death, some may have failed to pass while yet some have opted to drop out of school completely (but it's never too late to go back and finish.) It really tugs at your heart. Congratulations to all the 2011 graduates.

To top off the week, I received another Gooseberry Patch book, "5 Ingredient Family Favorites." Not only is this a great book because of the wonderful recipes, but I am a little biased's great because I'm in it! Yes, I am proud to say, I have had another recipe published by GBP. Seriously though, this is a great book. It has a nice section for gift giving ideas that are just great.
