Time For Dinner

Last night we had an old friend over for dinner.......he's not old we've just known him for a long time. He's a bachelor and spends most of his time working so a home cooked meal is a treat. It's so nice to cook for someone who truly appreciates it and tells you so. We had pork tenderloin (see recipe under writers block recipes tag) , squash casserole, butter beans, and tossed salad with the yummiest feta cheese. It pays to buy the real thing all the way from Greece. And for dessert....(drum roll please).....

....this absolutely fabulous peach and blueberry cobbler that Emily made. She served it with the only kind of ice cream we allow in our house because we figure if you're going to eat ice cream, eat the best. Anyway, Emily adapted a recipe that's in the current Southern Living and it was out of this world. Some people in our family (who shall remain nameless) even ate it for breakfast this morning. It's okay...I'm going on a long walk later.
The best thing that's happened to me all week is this:

Thank you, Tonja, from Gatherings for this award. Some people may say it doesn't matter, but it is nice to get encouragement with thoughtfulness and comments. It takes a couple of minutes and maybe there are times when that's too dear, but just a quick "Hi, liked this." goes a long way. So thank you Tonja for taking the time to let me and Andi, Teresa, Nancy, and Dianne know that you enjoy our little journals. Tomorrow I'll let you know who I'm passing the award on to.

I thought I was the only one to mix peaches and blueberries! But they come off here at the same time, we're picking blueberries now, I love them...and McLeod Farms, the peach farm herebouts has had a bumper them, too! Hope you have a great day!
