I wanted to take a minute and share a recipe with you. This recipe was given to me by Ms. Sue Holder back in 2014. I have made this recipe several times, and I think of Ms. Sue every time. How I miss talking recipes with Ms. Sue!

I can’t put into words what it means to me to be a part of this wonderful association; the friendships last a lifetime.

I hope everyone is busy cooking up something good and scrumptious!!!

Here is another one of my favorite quotes:

We cannot turn back time, but we can adjust how we “tick” moving forward.

Hope each of you has a wonderful day!!!
