Paper Plates....SUMMER


 My girl bought these adorable watermelon paper platters
for me and I think they are too cute...


 and, of course, I had to make something delicious for my first meal
on these cuties....


If you haven't tried your favorite Chicken Salad on a 
Hawaiian Roll,
you really should.

I remember once, many years ago, I took 5 
of these to one of my grandgirls at lunch time at school...
She was in 5th grade...tiny....
and she ate all 5 of them....!!
LOL
She kept saying, "Don't you want one, Memaw?"
and I said, "O, no, honey...I'm good."
...and I was so hungry by the time I got back home,
I don't remember HOW many but I ate quite a few myself !! 😙

YUM YUM

Lemons.....♥ ♥ ♥

This is about a cake from my 
Blog Archives...

I am reposting it because it's such a great cake to have thru hot summer months
and I am getting ready to bake another one.....yum

A pretty red bundt cake pan and 

 





fresh lemons
can be the start of something 
WONDERFUL....

and truth be told,
your pan doesn't even have to be RED......

but you DO
have to have
FRESH LEMONS..🍋

 OH  HONEY


Hug your cake with fresh lemon slices and fresh lemon zest on top...
your family will love you forever.

No recipe here, ladies...
just a lemon pound box cake, cooked in a bundt pan
using buttermilk instead of water...and an extra egg, of course.
It goes without saying that I added extra Vanilla
and may or may not have touched a dab of it behind ea ear....
just like my Aunt Lillian used to do..😌



Glaze is powdered sugar and lemon juice with a touch of cream.

I added drops of yellow cake coloring for a luscious color...a very pale yellow...
(looks totally white in these photos)


This is soooo delicious if you are a LEMON LOVER...


...another lemmon thing we love around here is
LEMMONADE
 ( i know, i spelled it LEMONADE all my life..)

A few years ago, a couple of grandgirls,
Brynna and Deeds
wanted to have a Lemonade Stand...


 I'll bet most of you thought
Lemmon
was spelled LEMON.....
well....
now ya know....😁


Their little cousins,
Tristan and Bradon
came by to hang out under the big shade tree....
every now and then getting a little more LEMMONADE in their cups...


 They had quite a few customers....
enuf that it gave them a little moola for their pockets...




I had the perfect
tee shirt to wear
at the
LEMMONADE STAND....
 ...and then, BROOKS stopped by to hang with us...
he was 15 here...
so sweet...
so handsome....

I love 'em all so so so much.
