Tradition still exists!

My daughter & son-in-law were married last Saturday. She picked an old church with a pastor for the ceremony. It was a simple but beautiful wedding. The marriage of a man & a woman still exists in this world. I am so thankful that they chose to have their marriage blessed by God from the beginning. I hope & pray that God will continue to bless them throughout their lives together.

I love to cook! I also love the old tins of spices that they use to have. I can smell the pumpkin pie cooking on Thanksgiving and the cinnamon toast in the morning.  I am finding that more & more of the kids today don't know how to cook. It amazes me that they haven't got a clue about it! It has been something I have  done since I was little & had to help make lunch for the farm help that came. Sometimes 10-12 people around the table! We had a neighborhood of farmers that helped each other out when needed. I remember peeling what seemed like mounds of potatoes. When the lunch dishes were cleaned up then it was time to get coffeetime stuff made.......cookies, pies, etc. It was a lot of work but I learned a lot from that experience. How many of you remember cooking for farm help?
