Yesterday we motored to Lacey Springs, Alabama to have lunch at Graves Grocery Store. Susan had seen a write up about it and thought we would enjoy venturing further afield. It was a beautiful October day just perfect for a ride in the country. We saw many pretty fields and home places along Upper River Road and Highway 36. We did note that it seems much farmland is being bought up by developers and that is troubling. We need those farms!!
Just as we thought we had missed our destination we saw it appear on the horizon!!
We all had something different for lunch. Deborah tried the special...meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans with a piece of cornbread. It looked yummy. I sorta wish I had chosen that!! I had a roast beef sandwich while Susan tried the salad plate.( chicken salad and pimento cheese I believe). We enjoyed our lunch and passed on the desserts though they look good. They came from the Mennonite Grocery store where I love to shop.
Last night we attended a Pampered Chef party at Susan's house. I am not a gadget person but I love the Pampered Chef products. I had a pizza stone that I know I purchased back in the early 90s and it fell out of the cabinet and broke into 100 pieces. At least it seemed like that many when I swept it up.! I was so upset but Susan told me not to worry she was thinking of having a party. Of course I will have to season my new one and it will take at least a year to get a patina on it. I used my stone to heat up leftovers in the oven. It did a great job at crisping up leftover food. I also enjoy my brownie pan which is rather like a muffin pan but has rectangular cups. No more brownies that tear apart when you cut them!!
I caught up with several ladies who I had not seen in a while. Glenda told me that she enjoyed reading my blog and that made my day. I am thankful for all you readers who enjoy keeping up with my adventures in NoAla.
I am off to MOPs today. It is CHOCTOBER...how can that fail to be a fun meeting with chocolate as the theme. And this afternoon Marvin and I will head to Chatsworth to check on the progress of the little house. Here is a sneak peek...Dry Wall is up!!! See you Monday!!
