tonight will be leftover birthday dinner from last night, the boys were not as hungry as i thought they would be, but they got to take home some goodies so they dont have to cook tonight either.

Fall has come big time to the poconos, i think it might be time to make a fire to take the chill out of the house. Looking forward to some pumpkin picking on the weekend maybe….

I am also excited to be planning a little visit to the girls of, they will be having a weekend crop not too far from my house, so i think im going to pop in to do a little shopping and say hello to my girls……i miss them so much……

Well its time to start preparing my supper, have a great night my friends….

Saying goodbye to a wonderful lady………………

Tonight i am off to a wake for a wonderful lady that i had the pleasure of meeting soon after i moved to the pocono’s 21 years ago. Vinny was one of the sweetest most, gentlest, loving, caring ladies i have ever met. I am lucky to be friends with her 3 daughters, Margaret, Maria and Jeannie as well as their husbands and children. They are the most fun filled crazy bunch of wonderful people, my heart is aching for all of them today.

I also had the pleasure of working with Vinny for some time, she was the best snack bar lady ever, Everyone loved her, she was a funny lady. She shared some of her recipes with me and i will think of her everytime i make them. I just want to say Rest in Peace my friend till we meet again……………………..xoxo
