On Wednesday's and Saturday's there is a local Farmer's Market in our town. I really love to go and buy fresh produce from the local farmers. Not only do they have amazing produce, but the quality and price make the trip so worth while. This is just one picture I snapped with my cell phone a few weeks ago...pure awesome!

By the time this posts, we will be checking into the VA hospital for the 1st of 2 procedures this week. Usually on VA days we reward ourselves for completing the task at hand by eating at a restaurant that we don't have locally. The past couple of trips we have visited Jack In The Box. The food has been so good, and the service so fast and friendly that we just keep going back!
I don't really know how tomorrow will go and I am prepared for a trip home to recuperate and prepare for procedure #2.
On a recent outing here in our hometown I spied this sticker on the front door. The food at this place was unbelievably good...the service, ehhhh. The food alone will have us as repeat customers, we just may choose to make our orders To-Go.
Hope you are each having a wonderful Tuesday!!

My Mom made these delicious chocolate and oatmeal, no-bake cookies every year for holidays. Christmas. Easter. Thanksgiving. 4th of July...Family reunion - a true family staple. As a child, these were my favorite. I couldn't hardly wait and would often volunteer to "help" just so I could sneak an early bite (or two). In Mom's cookbook, this recipe is labeled quite simply: No-Bake Cookies (Candy). I have decided to start calling them Mudpies. Yes, yes, I know this is quite a common recipe and many households have prepared and shared this recipe for generations. My Mom would both appreciate and be amused by our name-calling of these yummy treats. Knowing her grandsons got to enjoy these "Mudpies" would just be the icing on her cake. Thank you for sharing with us Mom, we love and miss you!
