Something Old, Something New


It was a perfect Houston day, a blue, no cloud in the sky, low humidity kind of spring day. With a little Buble-Sinatra mix on the stereo, we set out to make something old and something new for dinner. We fried up some shrimp with my Nana's recipe that I have made time and time again, an old southern classic batter made of buttermilk and cornmeal. For dessert, we tried something we have only had in restaurants, Tres Leches. It turned out scrumptious, using a recipe from Texas Highways magazine. The girls and I "styled" our cake with strawberries and a dusting of cinnamon. The man in the house was horrified that we did so.

Remember November

"You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time." Abraham Lincoln

Remember November: "so that we can return America to its founding principles of freedom, personal responsibility and economic liberty. We Remember November so we, our children, and grandchildren can live with the freedoms our founding fathers intended.
