Ooodles of Noodles!

I know, lately all of my posts have been about the meals we have been having. But when life is slow, weather is HOT and nothing much is happening... well I have nothing much else to write about now. :) I made homemade noodles for my wonderful hubby today. He certainly deserves it! They are one of his favorite things to eat & he has been working in a 125°F shop since 4:00 this morning. One small bit of news: On May 5th we had a horrible hailstorm! I have never seen hail so large in my life. My car, my hubbys truck & our camper all sustained hail damage. There was a bright side to it though... Mama got a newer car! I love it!!

Beans & Cornbread on the menu for supper tonight. It was 92, here on the prairie, yesterday & supposed to be even hotter today - no way I'm going to be standing in the hot kitchen cooking! Gotta love a Crockpot! Made the cornbread already, before things got too terribly hot out (we only got down to 70 degrees lastnight...). Beans and Cornbread... it always brings back childhood memories. Memories of a more gentle time, time with Mom, Dad, Joanie & Jason, all gathered around the kitchen table; times of laughter and fun, times filled with play and togetherness. *Sigh* I guess growing up is unavoidable, but I still have my memories!!
