Dinner is at 6

It is hotter than 40 hells outside and I have had my oven on since 10:30 this morning. The ac is on and the ceiling fans are keeping it a nice 74 degrees in here, better than the 100 degrees outside. Company is coming for dinner, so I thought I should give dinner a little bit more attention than my usual 30 minutes. Cooking is not my favorite thing to do, you have nothing to show for it when it is all done and cleaned up. I would much rather be in my studio and have toast and have some great pieces to look at at the end of the day. With that being said there are some dishes that I really enjoy making and one of them is homemade macaroni and cheese. I do not follow any particular recipe but do use a variety of cheeses for a deep flavor, it is always a big hit!

So anyway we are having a nice Southern meal tonight for our Yankee friends...Slow roasted pulled pork, homemade barbecue sauce, macaroni and cheese (my fav!), corn bread, fresh tomato,cucumber and feta salad and lets not forget some yummy lemon squares for dessert. Stop by if you can, I am sure to have extras!


  1. boy do i wish i could be there! you made me smile, i'd take toast and sit at my table anytime!

  2. Hummm Nashville is about 4.5 hours...I could be there for a late desert. The dinner sounds yummy!

  3. That all sounds so very delicious. Being a southern girl myself, it's just right! I'm intrigued by the tomato, cucumber, and feta as I've never heard of it with the addition of feta. Sounds great. Makes me wish my husband would eat tomatoes or cucumbers. Enjoy!!
