Hey Y’all! How ya doin? How’s your mama and them doin? My day got off to a slow start yesterday, then I got very busy cooking and going to the grocery store. Yesterday, I got an email saying my blog was nominated for an award! Ema Jones over at Food 4 Your Mood nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. (Insert fan girl squeal here.) My first thought was that my hair is a mess and here I am getting nominated for a award. Then I felt like poor ole Aunt Pittypat, from Gone with the Wind, begging for my smellin’ salts.
Now if you haven’t checked out Ema’s blog, you better get on it. Rather she’s whisking us away to a food or wine festival or she’s just sharing her recipes for Chicken Sausage with potatoes and sauerkraut, she will have you begging for more. A few of her brilliant recipes with colorful pictures had me licking my screen. To be nominated by such an amazingly awesome foodie is truly an honor. Thank You, Ema!
Rules for winning this award are very simple, here they are:-
1. Thank the person who has nominated you. Provide a link to his/her blog.
2. List the rules and display the award pic.
3. Include 7 facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers and let them know that they have been nominated.
5. Display the award logo and follow the blogger who nominated you.
Here are 7 facts about myself:
1. I never follow recipes unless I’m baking.
2. I’m a glutton when it comes to grown up cartoons. Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, American Dad
3. Most of my favorite singers/bands are dead. Janis Joplin, Mama Cass, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Patsy Cline, Etta James
4. The first meal I ever made was from a Dolly Parton country cookbook that my sister bought for our mom at Dollywood. I made fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and home made biscuits. The biscuits were little hockey pucks!
5. I hate sports, especially college sports. I know that’s not very Southern of me, but hey, we all can’t like the same things.
6. I had never made a cheesecake until I started watching marathons of The Golden Girls late at night. Subliminal messaging at it’s finest.
7. This is the funny one so brace yourselves. When I was a kid, we didn’t have much money. We weren’t poor by any means, but we surely weren’t rich. Well, my mama often bought our clothes at Sears at the local mall. I remember her buying me this long sleeved blue polo type shirt. I wore it to school the very next day. I got home and took it off, when she noticed a big white stamp on the back. I wore a shirt all day long that had the word “Sample” stamped on it.

I don’t follow many blogs that stay current…so I will do my best here.
