Check out my Slide Show!


On Thursday we went to the Jonas brothers concert at the Concord sleep train pavilion ,it was soo cool there were great pyrotechnics and the 3 brothers all gave a great show there were lots of flips,jumps, spins and Kevin's SOS dance !the stage really added to the show with rising platforms and an extra long catwalk.When Kevin asked for his bird house he got 4 of them and they played all their new song from their soon to be released album and a few song that are so new they didn't get on the new album.Nick even played "A little Bit Longer " a song about his diabetes .
Joe did his love bug dance which looks like tap dancing but was still cool. And as always the Jonas brothers were all ridiculously cute!! then after the show my mom was the best and bought Nina and I Jonas Brothers Concert tees

Any-who lol,

Memories of Beloved Recipies

My 97 year old grandmother, who is the most amazing cook ever and always cooked from memory has lost/misplaced her handwritten recipes. I am the only one who has the entire collection of these wonderful recipes. I had to sit by her side years ago to watch and measure her handful of this and pinch of that to get the true recipes, as she made these dishes.

So now I am returning the favor and mailing them to her. At first, I just put them in an envelope but then decided to make it into a folder deserving to hold such masterpieces. It came out lovely and I only wish I could see her face when she opens it and perhaps sit by her side as she cooks one of these delicious delights.

Her most amazing dish you ask? In my opinion: the hand tossed salad she made from her home grown vegetables with the vinaigrette she made in the bowl. A hand tossed dressing I could never duplicate. My brother's favorite, her turkey stuffing, my other brother loves her enchilada's and my husband and my sister, her red Chile pork. My children love her meatballs with spaghetti and my mom, her beef soup. Valerie
