Big Weekend

My stepdaughter graduated from high school this weekend. For the record, I am way too young to have a daughter who has graduated from high school. My husband is much older. Anyway, I had nothing to do with it, but I am proud to say she is off to Tulane this August. As you may recall, I spent 4 fantastic years living in New Orleans, so I couldn't be more pleased for myself and proud of her. Oh the fun we will have. She has already said that she is going to pretend like she doesn't know my husband and me when we go to visit her. Which is fine. Anyway, I cry at the first note of pomp and circumstance. So an emotional weekend was had.

Also, I promised my son that if he ran two miles with me I would get him some lego. I am not above bribing. And he did. So there we were at the mall at the Lego mini figure kiosk FOR A VERY LONG TIME. Emphasis on the very long time. Because this is a big decision, you know, which Lego mini figure you will select. So I left him there but I didn't want to wander too far away. This left me wandering Talbots (again, I am too young) and Brighton. Oh Brighton. Brighton typically reminds me of middle class Dallas homemakers. Yet there I was. And I found this . . . Dear God yes please. So a successful weekend was had by all.

In re White Trash Cooking . . . we've also been successful there. Indian Succotash is lima beans, corn and cream. Southern comfort food. Just the very reason I set off on this venture; that is, to find a recipe like that. I see many repeats of that dish in my future.

  1. The Succotash sounds good! And I like your new lego, er, "find" :)
