Menu for a Travel-Crazy Week


Sorry that I missed you on here Friday; I was out of town and didn't have a chance to post my usual book review. I am, however, happy to report that while on my trip I found some antique cookbooks to review in the future. My favorites are called, "The Plantation Cookbook" and "Charleston Receipts". The books' covers have been wiped-down with a Lysol-sprayed cloth, pages have been aired, and are now officially part of my treasure trove of old books! I know, it doesn't take much to keep some of us happy (I even like the smell of old books!)

The coming week will be what I call a "comings-and-goings week" We will have one flying to Washington D.C., one going the other direction, to Louisville, KY and three of us just keeping the usual pace here in the great city of Lawton! I'm trying to clean out the freezer spaces, so I will be using items that I already have . I plan to fix a birthday dinner for a friend on Saturday (her birthday was April 2 when I was busy with company, so the dinner got delayed). Here's my plan:
