I assumed that you would share with others. Vanilla ice cream sounds like a nice touch.

Is that a Southern Recipe?

I don't think the apple cake was a southern recipe, but I tried another new recipe yesterday that was - cheese grits casserole. I guess I was off by a day, but I will be having the leftovers tonight.

The picture is deceiving, since you only sprinkle 1/4 cup cheddar cheese on top, but there is plenty of cheese in the rest of it. It was very tasty. Full of fat and calories, of course. I need to take an extra long walk today.

I hope that none of us get too frustrated today.

I've never had gumbo, but I very much enjoy fried okra.

Just another day in paradise
I was unable to find gumbo among the other soups in the market today but pumpkin pie was readily available and I am sure there are some local wines in my cellar so you see I am not totally frustrated at this time. I hope California wineries are able to recover from recent events.

In other news, I am happy to report that my retirement savings (checkout the contest link), along with other things I've accumulated over the years, continue to provide some peace of mind in case unforeseen expenses challenge my pension income.

Have a wonderful day!

Those are nice prizes that Capitol One is giving away!

Enjoy your pumpkin pie! I hope you got some ice cream or whipped topping to go with it.

I tried to post it as a new sweep but something went wrong.

Maybe you could try again. I know if you try to post a blog sweep and don't check that it's a blog, that it won't go through, but this is obviously not a blog, so that shouldn't be the problem.

I don't think I can celebrate No Bra Day, at least not out in public, but I would love to celebrate M&M Day.

Anyone who wears that bra should stay in air conditioning or there will be a melt down.
