Headed toward Houston Texas!

I am super excited! I went to Houston with my Aunt Kathy, cousin Melisa and her friend Morgan! We went to my Aunt Ginger's to visit with her. She isn't doing so good health wise. Kemah and Galveston Texas is always so much fun to visit . I love going over this bridge as I know I am getting close to The Gulf of Mexico! Here's me and Aunt Kathy We are on the boat enjoying the ride! I love boats and ships and all that float in water! This is at the Aquarium Restaurant in Kemah. I love going here every time I come this way! This is Melissa and Morgie getting dry after the boat ride we took! This was a great time for us!! We got home August 26 th.

Alisha is loving to bake!

Mr. C. left for his work week today. Alisha his 15 year old daughter asked if we had anything to make that is sweet. I told her I thought we had stuff to make the Millionaire Pie. I checked the pantry and we needed a couple of items so I gave her money to go get cool whip and pecans. When she got back she made up the pies. http://ts1.mm.bing.net/th?id=H.4507419010664426&w=207&h=207&c=8&pid=3.1&qlt=90 If you haven't made up the Millionaire Pie what are you waiting on? It is super easy and we got the recipe from Cooks.com. Millionaire Pie 1 can Eagle Brand milk 1 lg Cool Whip Juice of 1 lg lemon 1 can crushed pineapple, drained well 1 cup chopped pecans 2 graham cracker crusts Mix all together real well. Pour into two crusts. Chill. Can freeze one if you desire. garnish top with cherries if desired. As I was leaving for Houston Texas in several hours I only had one wonderful piece of her pie. Which is a good thing because I sure need to loose a lot of weight.

Memories

Sometimes I wonder how my brother and I have such different memories of our mom.  We were raised together but totally recall the past very different.  Tonight he posted a recipe he said mom use to make, I do not ever remember her making it.  I'm sure she must have cooked it but why don't I remember? Makes me sad to think I'm forgetting some of the past.  Sure wish I had wrote down more of her history including recipes and such.  I remember my dad always saying you can't redo your past, he sure hit that one out of the ballpark! I need to find a few old recipes dad made as well.  I would like to put together a cookbook of family favorites for my boys.  Just so they could have a taste of the   past.  Of course right now it might not mean much to them but later on it might.
