Two weeks ago today my newest grandson was born. Our family has established a tradition of orchestrating a schedule to provide meals to the family for the first two weeks at home. I am a very enthusiastic participant for several reasons. First of all it gives me extra time to spend with our newest family member. I just love being able to cuddle with the tiny little person. Of course the added bonus is being with my daughters and their other children. All of them add so much joy to my life.
Today is one of my self designated days to provide a meal to the family. Even though the weather outside is predicted to be sweltering I’ve decided to prepare a meal filled with comfort foods. The wonders of air conditioning are what will make it all possible.
Of the items on the menu are Chicken Parisienne (a family favorite) and a recipe from Betty Crocker called Angel Toffee Dessert. To round off the meal I will add a vegetable as well as some type of fruit. I realize that this may not be a menu that would be added to the list of healthy options but I don’t care. It’s my last scheduled meal train visit and I’m going to make it a comfort food extravaganza.
Here are the latest photos to be added to my family photo album.

Time for me to get organized and set this meal in motion.
Thanks for being a part of my day! I look forward to your next visit.
Last Fall we learned that we would once again be grandparents. We were overjoyed at the prospect of adding another grandchild to our family. Since I had made quilts for my other grandchildren it only seemed natural to plan and create a quilt for this child as well.
I chose the same pattern that I used for the other quilts, Cathedral by Villa Rosa Designs. The fabrics were a joint venture by my daughter and myself. This is what we selected.
My intention was to complete the project before the new grand-baby arrived. I did after all have, give or take, eight months to meet my goal. Unfortunately, as the saying goes
the best laid schemes of mice and men often go awry
and go awry mine did. On July 6th our newest bundle of joy came into this world. While I am absolutely overjoyed that Mr. B has joined our family I am sad to report that his quilt hasn’t even been started. I’m certain though that the absence of a completed quilt from Nana has not even crossed his mind. He won’t even be able to acknowledge that one does or does not exist for quite some time.
Looks like I better get rolling!
Please give a warm welcome to my newest grandson Mr. B
