Truth in Palmyra

It’s Your Birthday Girl!

Today is the girl child’s 19th birthday. Oh my, how did I get to the point where my youngest child is 19??!!


Of course, family gatherings are really just an excuse for Nana and Poppy to see our baby


What’s for supper? Pretty much what any holiday supper is around here. Steak!


This is catering, Southeast Arkansas style. Cook at our place, transported by ultra-modern catering equipment to the old folks home LOL.



Hey Grandpa!!! What’s for Lunch?

I don’t get to the City much, so David’s Burgers is always in order for lunch when I do!



Hey Grandpa!!! What’s For Supper???


The Skillet

It needs no explanation around these parts. Other than I only get to eat this when it’s just me LOL.


Yum!!! Yum!!!

Hey Grandpa!! That Supper Stinks!!!

This is so pathetic. I worked all day, and the family all went down to Monroe, LA to do some shopping. I am tired and lazy. My supper is frozen pizza rolls and orange juice.

This is so NOT Yum Yum.


Hey Grandpa!!! What’s for Supper???

We all had a lot going to today, so simplicity is the order of the day. Thank Him for crockpots! See, Christians are NOT anti-technology!

Cheesy chicken Crock Pot chicken breasts

Turnip Greens(of course!)

White rice 

This was so easy. A can of cream of chicken soup, a can of cream of celery soup.  Salt and pepper to taste. Mix in any shredded cheese you like. Onions if you like. Put the chicken breasts in the crock pot and cover with the soup. Cook on low for about 5 hours. About an hour before done, put MORE shredded cheese on top. That’s it!


YUM!!! YUM!!!

Hey Grandpa!!! What’s for Supper???

Today is my lovely bride’s birthday, so just a few of her favorites. Except for the dessert, she has never had that.

Ribeye steak on the grill

Baked Potatoes

Simple Salad

Quick and easy Faux Apple/Cream cheese cobbler

I presume I don’t need to tell anyone how to grill a steak or make a salad, right? I do have some thoughts on baked potatoes, though.

Wash them, Rub them down will some olive oil. Rub them with salt. Chuck them bare on the shelf of the oven at 425 for a bit, until they are soft feeling and sort of crispy outside. Look, DON”T wrap “baked,” potatoes in foil. Those are NOT baked; they are steamed!

The cobbler thing was sort of pieced together ad hoc from other recipes:

2 8 oz packages of cream cheese

1 c sugar

2 packs crescent roll dough.

2 – 21 oz cans of apple pie filling

1/2 stick butter

Cinnamon and brown sugar to taste.

Soften the cream cheese, mix in the sugar. Put the first crescent roll dough on the bottom of a sprayed 8 x 13 pan. Spread the cream cheese mixture on that, top with the apple filling and spread that out. Put the other crescent roll dough on top. Melt the butter and pour it over the top, and sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon to your taste. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes until the crust is good and brown.

You can do your crust and filling from scratch and have a “real,” cobbler but seriously, why bother?

And finally, the finished product.


YUM!!! YUM!!!

Hey Grandpa!!! What’s for Supper???

It’s just me tonight, they all went to a movie. So, I do what I want.

Tuna, cheese and tomato sammiches.


Yum!!! Yum!!!

The Maiden Voyage of the Grill

Well, as you may know, I purchased a new grill the other day, and today was to be the maiden voyage. It was sort of a special occasion, being our youngest’s graduation from High School, and our daughter in law’s Nursing School Graduation. So, I got drafted to cook for the occasion. Not that I mind, of course!


The command and control center; it’s never too warm for coffee, I say

The menu, for tonight: steak, baked potatoes, and fresh corn on the cob. Homemade peach ice cream for dessert!

The grill in action


Time to eat!

A fun time with fun people

And, finally, nothing like a bit of a snooze


My New Grill is Sick, and Must be Cured

Okay, it’s not really sick, but it still has to be cured. As in…prepared to be used to cook! Blogging is not the only thing a bit of time will let me do!
