I am wishing you luck. I hope your dinner turns out wonderful as with company coming, it can sometimes be stressful, at least for me. It’s the running around with the head cut off syndrome here.

Ah, you must have been watching Ina Garten with me yesterday when she did this tried and true winner. She told of her friend being taught how to make it by the famed Julia Child. I’d love her in my kitchen too. Enjoy your meal, sounds wonderful.

For our dinner tonight, I'll have to report back later as I've not quite been able to come up with an idea yet.

We are having chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, green beans. I made these five layers bars yesterday from Paula Deen, so will have them for dessert.

Uncle Bob, you have me drooling, too! These are two of my aboslute favorites, when done just right, and I have a hunch they will be!

No Red whiskey from Kentucky?

You caught me! No, actually, I can't even handle the smell of whisky. I had a really bad experience with it in high school. A friend and I drank a lot of it out of a squeeze bottle (trying to hide what we were drinking--my gosh were we dumb!!!) and were sicker than dogs!

I dug out the Martin Yan Quick and Easy cookbook I received for my birthday two years ago and discovered a dish called Crunchy Apple Beef that sure sounded like it should be made with cubed pork butt instead, so I will try that tonight, if I am not too tired from cat adoptions* this afternoon.

Well, this is the first night I've had off since my birthday. I've got some coconut-breaded shrimp prepped up, a couple 24 oz porterhouse steaks to be grilled, some plantains that I'm going to fry, and who knows what for the veg. I'm going to my Paula Dean's Double Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake in a little bit, after lunch.

We had paninis for lunch. No clue on dinner; maybe buffalo wings.
