My Mama cooked whatever Daddy brought home and he brought home mostly game and fish.  But one time, he brought home some big ole frogs.   Daddy explained to Mama how it tasted like chicken and it would be fine.  Daddy nor Mama knew about the nerve one cuts before one puts those frog legs into a hot frying pan.   My Mama ran screaming from the kitchen and we kids ran to see what was the matter and there before our wondering eyes were frog legs jumping all over the stove.  Needless to say we didn't eat frog legs that night nor any night because Mama put her foot down and said NO MORE FROGS.  

For my mom
Happy Mother's Day In Heaven

Almonds have as much protein per ounce as red meat. Adding almonds into your diet has shown to help reduce the risk of heart attacks by as much as 50%. This result is due to the good-for-your-heart vitamin E found in almonds. Monounsaturated fats can decrease your bad LDL cholesterol levels and increase your good HDL cholesterol levels. Antioxidants help keep your arteries young.

We've started getting sweet corn in here in our South Florida stores.   You may not have it yet but keep this recipe until you do
Summer Corn Chowder with Scallions, Bacon & Potatoes
5 ears fresh corn
7 oz. scallions (about 20 medium)
3 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 Tbs. unsalted butter
1 jalapeño, cored, seeded, and finely diced
1 tsp. kosher salt; more to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
3-1/2 cups low-salt chicken broth
1 large Yukon Gold potato (8 to 9 oz.), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice (about 1-1/2 cups)
1-1/2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
2 Tbs. heavy cream
Husk the corn and cut off the kernels. Reserve two of the corn cobs and discard the others. Trim and thinly slice the scallions, keeping the dark-green parts separate from the white and light-green parts.Cook the bacon in a 3- or 4-qt. saucepan over medium heat until browned and crisp, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate. Pour off and discard all but about 1 Tbs. of the bacon fat. Return the pan to medium heat and add the butter. When the butter is melted, add the white and light-green scallions and the jalapeño, salt, and a few grinds of black pepper. Cook, stirring, until the scallions are very soft, about 3 min.
Add the broth, corn, corn cobs, potatoes, and thyme and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until the potatoes are completely tender, about 15 min. Discard the corn cobs.
Transfer 1 cup of the broth and vegetables to a blender and puree. Return the puree to the pot and stir in the cream and all but 1/3 cup of the scallion greens. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for a couple of minutes to wilt the scallions and blend the flavors. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve sprinkled with the bacon and reserved scallions.

Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And to pass it on to other folks.
When Dad Babysits

Moms know best
   I am five feet, three inches tall and pleasingly plump.
Recently, after I had a minor accident, my mother accompanied me to the emergency room.
          The ER nurse asked for my height and weight, and I responded in a serious tone, "Five-foot-eight, 125 pounds."
          While the nurse pondered this information, my mother leaned over to me ... "Sweetheart," she gently chided, "this is not the Internet."

The Pasta Diet and Your Health


1. You walka pasta DA bakery.

2. You walka pasta DA candy store.

3. You walka pasta DA Ice Cream shop.

4. You walka pasta DA table and fridge.

You will lose weight!

AND ...
For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat -- And suffer fewer heart attacks than the English.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat -- And suffer fewer heart attacks than the English.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine -- And suffer fewer heart attacks than the English.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine -- And suffer fewer heart attacks than the English.

5.. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats -- And suffer fewer heart attacks than the English.

Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12

Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”

Diamond Rio: In God We Still Trust -

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan Tribute -- Bel Air Presbyterian Church - YouTube

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
