fall food flops-- special birthdays-- follies-- and other news

the weather last couple of days says fall is officially here here----

let's see what do i have to share---well one thing i will share in a video on this blog later------

i haven't made anything too interesting for dinner last week or so---except for beef stew and a surprisingly awful rendition of my before famous loved chicken casserole----i don't know what happened but it was not well received and much of it was thrown out

i guess it does matter what vegetables you choose--although every other time i have put all kinds of combinations ---and for some reason we could not for the life of us-get those biscuits to cook all the way---

over the weekend we celebrated my dad's 90th birthday-----he seemed to enjoy it---and got 2 jackets among his gifts-----

funny thing---my brother was kinda interviewing dad about lots of events in his life---and some history on our church--of which he and mom are charter members--

when asked about some details of the past leaders and such----my aunt interjects about a certain someone---"didn't he run off with some other woman"

did i mention we were recording---

robyn and dillon are anxiously awaiting their baby---all seems well---

yesterday the pastor had robyn and dillon announce what the baby will be----i tell ya---dillon looked like he was gonna explode with joy---

speaking of church---as some of you may recall---our church has an annual event known as the "fall follies"---the next one will be in a couple of weeks------

over the years (when i used to organize it)i  have had to steer some people away from their desired acts or songs--

this one year i was unable to deter our then very pregnant music director from singing "i'm just a girl who can't say no"----now i am wondering if robyn could revive that one-----


  1. haha they may be becoming mine too :)

  2. 90 years--wow! Happy birthday to your dad!

  3. Yesterday I made enough chicken casserole for three days. I must have copied your original recipe Lynn because it is so tasty. I think the combination of the fresh green beans from a friend and the supermarket's winter vegetable stew pack (first week on the shelves) did the trick.
    I must find my DVD of Oklahoma and watch Gloria Grahame again.

  4. i haven't given up on the chicken casserole-- yours' sounds really good-- i haven't put green beans in mine before-- i might just have to try that :)

  5. haha i just got your oklahoma reference ;)

  6. So glad your parents are still there, looking great, and that your brother is hearing/recording the stories of their lives. That is a gift that will always warm your heart.
    I have ruined many a meal in my day, when the kids were little. Now we buy take-in, or I make my stand-by recipes.

  7. Your beef stew looks really good. That's so funny about that song, even if I do have it stuck in my head now. :-)

  8. Happy birthday to your dad!!!! I shall have a slice of cake in his honor :)

  9. What a fun party! You're making me a little sad that the rest of my family is on the other side of the country, but no, I'm not going to be sad. Happy birthday to your dad! (And you know that offer still stands to have you come be my live-in cook. ;)
