Busy, Busy

I think I'm going back to Baby Sister's house. I just thought I was busy there. 

We have gone non-stop here today. We left early this morning to buy herbs for the garden. If you know me, you'd know I'm pretty much useless when it comes to yard and garden stuff. But it's easy to pretend you're a gardener when you see all the pretty colors in the displays at the store.

Thankfully Granddaddy humors me and lets me think I've helped when he's done nearly all the work. I picked out a few packets of flower seeds to sow behind the herbs and he put them in the ground. He also planted the herbs. I actually did help a little. A very little.

We even fixed a pot to put on Mommy's deck. Hopefully she will have fresh herbs in a few weeks for her cooking. Using fresh herbs makes people think you are a fabulous cook.

Then it was back inside to get busy in the kitchen. Our church is having a covered dish lunch right after the morning worship service for our members and to feed 70 volunteers who will arrive tomorrow for Salkahatchie Summer Service. 70 extra people to feed (many of them teenage boys) means we need extra food.

For things like that, it's best if I stick with the basics. Macaroni and cheese is always a winner at church dinners. And I discovered you can layer the noodles and cheese a day ahead. Tomorrow I will mix the milk and egg part and bake it.

These two dishes are done and ready to finish in the morning. I made a pan of brownies for good measure. I surely hope everyone else is home cooking, too.

Mimiiii.......  Where are you?????

Not back there....

Come bacckkkk.....

(At least I'm pretending she misses me.)
