Some of my happiest memories are those when we were gathered around a table enjoying a wonderful meal. I love to cook and invite family and friends over for a meal. Sometimes I get carried away and invite more people over than I have available chairs.
Yesterday we gathered around our "meals on wheels" table and shared a meal of Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini with an old friend and her partner from junior high school! We sat and talked and ate for hours!
My daughter and daughter-in-law were always asking me for recipes, so I put a book together for them. I'm still adding to the book little by little. Now when we have a family gathering, they just turn to the book and tell me what they are going to bring to the table.
I'm going to share the book with you, my faithful blog readers. You have given so much to me over the years with your support, love, and laughter. I appreciate you more than you will ever know. Click HERE to download the cookbook.
Thank you for the recipes and your continued friendship! My sister just made a soup similar to this one, My mom loved it, Thanks again. Ready to shovel more snow this week?ReplyDelete
Yes, our shovels are at the ready. We also have new mud and snow tires.Delete

Thank you for the cookbook, those recipes look delicious. Fish tacos, yum. Merry Christmas from Maine!ReplyDelete
A good friend of ours doesn't like fish. He stopped by one day out of the blue and we served him the fish tacos. He loved them!Delete
I wasted no time and printed out this wonderful gift. I am looking forward to trying new recipes and making new memories.
We share another couple of things in common:
1) lemon meringue pie... my grandmother also had the knack for a perfect meringue, I think practice made perfect (they also ran a poultry farm, so had plenty of eggs to crack).
2) my maiden name was Ross. Grandfather directly from the ol' country (Scotland).
Merry Christmas my friend.
Give hugs to Gail, Sharon McD
We should wear the Ross tartan the next time we meet! Wouldn't it be wonderful if we were related!!!Delete
Have you seen that plaid? It is quite the eye popper. Related: yes, I would say we've been cut from the same cloth! 🤣Delete
Yes I have! Maybe I should work that into my fabric line.Delete
