Squash, Roasted and Herbed

The Journey Home is a day shelter/Christian outreach here in Murfreesboro. That’s where I spend a lot of my time. Different groups come in to cook and serve our lunch each day. Today’s chef was Frank, and he fixed the best squash I’ve ever eaten. Baked on a cookie sheet, olive oil and lots of […]

Amazed at the presence of one greater than I…

Here I am…just a little thing.  I think I was pretty cute, though.  I like the way I have a smile on my face–I still try to keep one there.  My eyes seem to be sparkly and full of joy–I think they still are.  It’s amazing, isn’t it? When I was born, I was born […]

I Was Not Disappointed!

Spanish White Gazpacho.  Does it sound interesting?  It did to me, mainly because I don’t care for gazpacho and wondered how different this could be.  Sadly, many people have not tried this cool, smooth, and refreshing dish, and I believe it is leaving the menu at Max’s.  But for tonight, Chef James had some of […]

A Food Orgy

That’s the comment someone left that was on the website for the place I went today.  I began with the Newton Unfiltered Merlot.  It was full.  How else do I describe it?  It has a peppery aroma and a full-bodied flavor.  I am really in heaven.  The hostess, Jordan, answered my question of “What tastes […]

A Tale of Susan and Mac

He jumps at each one as it buzzes, which is probably almost painful for him when five or six are buzzing at the same time.  He wears me out as I attempt to walk him so he can relieve himself outside the house.  It is utterly frustrating.  Why can’t he just focus on the business […]


It’s just beautiful.  I’m guessing we have 3-4 inches of the white stuff.  It’s so clean, so soft, so pretty. I’ve put some black beans on the stove to cook for some soup that will taste so yummy when lunch time rolls around. I’ve noticed birds at the feeders that are never here.  I guess […]

Little Jupiter and the Great Big Moon

I see the moon. The moon sees me. Godbless the moon, and God bless me! The moon and jupiter are like people: Some people shine brightly, larger than life. Other people shine brightly, but when placed beside someone who shines larger than life, their light seems so small. Yet, both lights bring awe and amazement, […]


I think about food more than some people and less than others. I mean, I know that I should eat to live and not live to eat.  (The same could be said about the consumption of other things, like wine and coffee).  So, while I really have no problem with not letting food control me, […]


Something I learned a long time ago about my mother’s family…few people had one name. For instance, my great great grandmother was Jennie Kendrick Collins, but the kids called her Bonnie. Turns out she didn’t want to be called “grandmother.” Others–my great aunt: I called her Auntie, her given name was Mary, her siblings called […]
