Big Family Day

Today is the birthday of my daughter who lives with me. It is also the 48th. wedding anniversary of my other daughter. Today, along with the four of us and a great grandson, we had lunch at the Dillard House in Dillard, GA I was a bit disappointed because there was no country ham on the menu today. That was the main item I was looking for.

Just south of Dillard is Osage Farms. I usually make several trips each year mostly for tomatoes and Silver Queen corn. I get the 25 lb. cartons of tomatoes. Those great big beautiful one pounders were $20. for 25 pounds. Resorting to my knowledge of the "goesinto" math, that indicates the cost is 80 cents per lb. The same size and quality tomato in a regular grocery store is about double that. Later on, I'll go back and get several boxes and share with the elderly residents here at the Downs.

It's about time for another jaunt to the mountains for a little R & R, so my daughter and I will go to Sugar Mt. NC, on Friday, where we will be joined by four of my female relatives. I just took a Turducken out of the oven which will accompany me to Sugar Mt. I should be back in time to learn who has committed during the "cook out".

Sounds like a great day, other than the missing country ham. Silver Queen is the best, but it's getting hard to find in our area. All the farmers are growing bi-color, it's good, but not Silver Queen.
