{Beaching with the Girls}

Good Sunday afternoon everyone. I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and that tomorrow, July 4th, that you enjoy your red, white and blues. I just returned from from a short getaway to Fernandina Beach with my three daughters and we had such a wonderful time. We had one shower of rain but needless to say, I was a drowned rat! But oh did it ever feel so good and I simply just give praise for the much needed rain and time away with the girls. I for sure got the biggest soaking but then I can't move as fast as my girls! LOL!  Web image We had a lovely meal at the Boathouse one evening. We had about an hour wait so we walked around the historic district for a bit and oh my! I found the cutest little Christmas ornament shop. I can't believe I did not take any pictures. Especially when I LOVE ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS.  There is nothing like the sound of the ocean and the clean salt air to me.  We had brunch one morning at Sliders and one can never go wrong with Grits and Shr

{Chicken Alfredo with Spaghetti Squash Noodles}

Dear friends I have not forgotten about sharing my recipe with you for Chicken Alfredo and my new favorite, Spaghetti Squash Noodles .  You can pin this post if you want to try this recipe.  As most of you know this was our main course for our romantic dinner outside for two for Valentine's. You can see the post here if you missed it.   So for starters I picked a few fresh herbs from my little herb garden, washed and I pat them dry with a paper towel . Then I just pick off what I think I might use.  I'm a fan of fresh herbs and I like variety in most anything I cook. So, I have picked parsley, oregano, and a little sage. You can use whatever spices you like. This is what I had so this is what I used. And I just used a few sprigs of each. I went ahead and mixed up my toppings. 1 1/2 cups of P anko bread crumbs 3 tablespoons of dried parley 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt ( I used M

{Sharing my birthday with you}

WOW , it seems that I just celebrated a birthday and now here I am celebrating another birthday! It's just crazy I tell ya! Time waits on NO ONE!  But praise the Lord for another day of life, right? God is good!  My three daughters carried me to Biscottis for brunch. You have your choice of what kind of meal you would like but we all chose brunch and it was so good. Of course as soon as we walked in the door these two little ones eyed the dessert case. They are well known for their luscious desserts. Their number one seller is their bread pudding with ice cream. I would have thought it would have been one of their many cakes. My daughter Melissa ordered the bread pudding and said it was the best she ever ate! Now when she picked their bread pudding over MINE I knew that meant I would have to step up my game on my bread pudding! LOL!  YUM brunch was delicious. Some of the best cheese grits ever! My granddaugther Kyleigh helped me to eat them all too !

{Romantic Dinner for Two}

Nothing like avoiding the hustle and bustle of the outside world and just enjoying a dinner for two at home outside with God's beauty for a special Valentine's dinner.      Nothing fancy or elaborate but a table for TWO is always romantic!  I started us out with a simple appetizer than my man loves... stuffed mushrooms . I went with a two-cheese and garlic stuffing and needless to say...I AM SO GLAD I DID NOT FIX ANYMORE THAN THIS! YUM!  Next came a simple salad made up romaine, carrots, celery, black olives and dressing. Awe, then the main course... Chicken Alfredo over spaghetti squash noodles . YES, I do want you to have my recipe...You will love me for it later!  And this bread in which my man loved.  Nothing like ending the meal with chocolate covered strawberries .   A nice ending to a romantic dinner was followed by a little outside fire ...  With candles burning.... surely suited
