Hey! I have been very busy lately but never too busy to visit my Dad on a Saturday. And you know he has a great meal waiting for me. He has always liked the TV show "Hee Haw". There is a character on there called "Grandpa Jones" where he is asked what there is for dinner. So, I have the following for you...
Grandpa, what's for supper?
"Crusty onion cornbread and a big pot of pinto beans,
Peach cobbler and a plate of biscuits too!
Fried okra, corn on the cob and pinto beans,
Sliced tomatoes and cantaloupe...times two!"
Is your mouth watering yet?
My Dad grows sunflowers and gives them to me when they have gone to seed for my birds.
Okra is good to eat but the flower is also beautiful. To think that this flower becomes a pod of okra! (And if you think that fried okra is greasy, well, you have never had my Dad's!)
Oh dear, looks like SOMEONE got into this cake of cornbread before dinner time...okay, I confess...it was ME! It is just the best thing you can imagine, my Dad likes to put those sweet Vidalia onions in there and it is just right with the cornbread.
Peach cobbler. In Daddy's own words..."GOOD".
And he didn't have it today but very often, he makes macaroni and cheese and it is just perfect. (The secret is a MOUNTAIN of cheese, trust me, I have seen him make it!)
He has been very busy this summer canning many of the vegetables that he has grown. From as near as I can count, it seems that he might be getting close to 500 jars...yes, that is a correct figure FIVE HUNDRED. My wish is that you all have such joy in your life, or as my Dad puts it..."I have a little project I am working on just now..."
Hope you enjoyed the Saturday visit to Daddy's. (Wish I had his energy!)
