Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

He Could Not Tell A Lie

Happy George Washington's birthday! To celebrate this historic day I made a cherry pie. Look, Nana! I tried out your recipe for sweet and sour red cabbage. It's a German dish and it honestly tasted better than when my Grandma made it. (sorry Grandma!) I had a big head of cabbage so I added a little more brown sugar and vinegar. Get the recipe from Nana if you'd like.
Not exactly a low calorie meal but oh so good. Comfort food for sure. I put the green beans in front so it'd hide the mashed potatoes and gravy. Doesn't a picture of meat always look so weird?

That cherry pie looks divine and the plate it is on so pretty! Love the box you ordered from Lisa. She is so talented and generous. What a fun box to receive with all the extra goodies. Enjoy! Blessings, Tammy
