September 26th, 1972 to 2022...50th Wedding Anniversary

I still remember most vividly, laying on the sofa, in our first apartment at Villa Victoria, asking Larry how our lives would look in fifty years...He was 24 and I was 21.
Lolol...He's now 74 and I'm 71. 
Two children and four grandchildren and one great-granddaughter later...we're still kicking.
We are Blessed.
The Kitchen Air Pro was my gift from hubby.  If you know me, you know I love to bake.  
A tremendous savings at Sam's Club!  $289!!!  It came with a 3qt and 6qt bowl, beaters for both, a slotted spoon for wiping the beater clean (works okay but I'm not impressed). 
Larry's still trying to decide what his gift from me will be...Lol...last words on it were coconut...and pie...lolol  Being married this long, you don't usually party hardy.  It's maybe lunch biggie.
As long as we are still able to here for each other and the kids, that's really all that matters.

Great Gran Sloane...

Our daughter and Sloane's Grandmother, Lolli...

I acquired this recipe from my sister years ago.  I've made it every Christmas since 1979.  Everyone loves the stuff.

These are those weird Butter Swim biscuits...good Lord they're good!  
Recipe here:

Then I made these Egg & Bacon English muffins for the freezer.

They freeze great for up to 3-6 months, if wrapped right.

Also...beef & refried bean burritos.  They also freeze well... to serve, thaw, fill with lettuce, tomato and cheese.  A serious yum!

A dessert of cream easy to make.

Hope you all are enjoying the last day of Summer, here in the USA.  
Fall is upon us although you couldn't prove it by in Texas today it's supposed to be 97*F, 36C.  Looks like it'll be hot up until week after tired of the heat.  It blasted us this year!  Our yard is simply straw...since we weren't able to water like we use to.  It's restricted watering.  The water is high here, as well...$130 a month, minimum!  The electric has climbed as well...everything has!
Have a sweet and peaceful week guys...see you next time!

Happy Anniversary, and 50 years is special, indeed. The food on here is amazing. I don't think it could last in my freezer for 3-6 months haha. Have never heard of Butter Swim biscuits. They sure look good. The first time I tried creme brulee was years ago, and it was so Yummy to me. I hope it gets a little cooler there. I know what you mean about the lawn. I'm on a big corner lot, so watering often would be too expensive. Baby Sloane is darling.

Happy Anniversary and congratulations on your 5oth anniversary! What more precious gift could you have received this year than the birth of that precious, precious baby Sloane? I love the color of your Kitchen Aid mixer! Those butter swim biscuits sure do look good as do all the food pictures you post! I swear I gain a pound or two just looking at them! Have a good week my friend! XO

Happy Anniversary! 50 years is a blessing. We are at 41 and I don't know where that time went.
Your mixer is going to be wonderful!
Your food looks so good. I should make some of the egg muffins for the freezer. So handy and good!

Sandra Cox said...

Happy Anniversary tomorrow!
After seeing those egg muffins, I may need to make one for supper;)

Happy HAPPY Anniversary!!! 50 years!! You and your Larry are so blessed with one another! Thank you for your sweet comment and words of wisdom on my blog post the other day.

That great grandbaby is precious! I have a 20 year old grandson and I am hoping to live long enough to see great grand babies!

I copied the Coke Salad recipe! Thank you so much for your gift of sharing recipes.

We are in Irving....are y'all anywhere near us in the DFW area?

Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby! It would been 52 years for my late beloved and I, this past June. Your new mixer is a beauty and the perfect gift for you. I loved seeing all your food items. The coke salad sounds really good! I agree, our Texas heat has been soooo long. I’m ready for some cooler temperatures.

Well first of all let me add my congratulations to the others -- FIFTY years of marriage is truly an accomplishment. So wonderful. If we can't keep our promises, what are we good for? A deal is a deal -- come H-E double hockeysticks or high water. WOW those butter swim biscuits ... I don't eat like that anymore but that picture makes me wish I did. I may have to try them anyway! Please share that easy creme brulee recipe! And wow, Baby Sloane is so precious. xoxo
