My Lil Family

Here are some pictures of the babies to update you, just cuz I know you have been so wanting to see the lil boogers.  Well, my daughter is coming here for a whole month in October.  The end of October to be exact.  Her hubby is off in the great sand box desert playing war, poor baby, until February.  So she will be here with the girls.  I will be in NONNA heaven!!  I will have all my babies here for a whole month!!  I can’t wait!  LET THE NIBBLING BEGIN!!!

staying over and Nonna and Papa’s house!


Tomorrow is a big day!  My grand daughter Jordan is out of school for 3 weeks now.  So we are going to the big zoo up in Raleigh for the whole day.  It is about 2 1/2 hours away, and should be soooo much fun.  Sammy loves animals.  It is all he has talked about since we told them.  We will probably take the whole gang again in October. 


The weather has been cooler here. In the upper 60’s and lower 70’s.  It has been so nice.  Hope it keeps up. 


Well, let me know what’s been going on in your part of the world!!



Wow I can not believe that it has been almost a month since I have posted!!  WTH??  Why didn’t someone slap me?  Next time, someone better tell me, because there is just no excuse for that.  Being on a 5 week trip either is no excuse.  But I am home now and settled back into my routine again.  Whew, am I tired!! 


We just had an exciting week-end with our friend “Irene” who came to visit us.  She came ashore right here where we live in NC.  Just off shore about an hour from where I live is the outer banks.  The actual ocean is only 30 minutes from our home though.  We only got tree limbs down in our back yard and a lot of leaves and debris down.  No other damage to our property.  We did lose power for two days.  Thankfully, my in-laws had the fore sight to buy a generator years and years ago and we had that.  It saved us.  We had lights and kept the refrigerator going and some fans to keep cool.  All in all, we came out so much better than many in our area. 


Tonight I am making smoked grilled pork chops with stuffing.  Asparagus almandine, and garlic crisped potatoes.  My daughter, who used to sell Pampered Chef, sold me a grill pan with the press.  It is cast iron with the cast iron press, like for making panini  sandwiches.  Well, I went to the commissary today and bought rib-eye steaks, smoked pork chops and chicken breasts.  So for the next few days I will be experimenting on the grill pan.  Tonight is pork chop night!!  So, folks, that is what’s cooking at my house tonight.  What have you got going on in your kitchen?
