Zest----through your life

everything you do---do it with your own spin on it---do it with love ---do it with Zest---

whether it's a casual night at home or an important anniversary of some sort-----plan it---enjoy it---put some Zeal in it!

create what you don't have----don't be afraid to add a little something something---change it up---make it one of a kind---your kind-

keep em guessing---what's she gonna serve this time----

I smile as I recall one of my grandsons saying to me---"on the way over here--we were all guessing what nanny would have----and we all decided---it would be pizza or some weirdo casserole"----

yes sometimes we may disappoint we may not please everyone---but hey----you gotta get in there and try---

so I keep planning and dreaming---of having that once a month Sunday dinner----that occasional Saturday morning family brunch----so many ways to bring people together---

I hope you have enjoyed my theme this year and maybe just maybe I have nudged you into a little more food thought-----cause who knows----if you make it---they just might come!!!

  1. I was expecting lemon or lime zest. But, zest for life is good. :)

  2. Very rare to have anyone over to eat, they all like their own cooking... and I don't blame them. I'd much rather go to their house to eat!

  4. You've brought back some memories of my past in the south with your recipes. I'm sure everything you make is tasty. We called my mom Nanny too, since hub's mom wanted to be Nana. Congrats on finishing this year's A to Z, Lynn!

  11. Hello there.
    Congratulations on surviving the A-Z Challenge! I didn't get to visit your blog during the crazy month of April so I'm popping over today from the Road Trip. My goal is to visit all the blogs that linked up, before next year's challenge starts up again.
