Pickett House dinner

When I think of my MawMaw, I think of fried chicken. I have lots of memories of her, but the best have always been of when I was young and Sunday dinner after church. She had seven children and every one of them, along with their families, came to Sunday dinner.

Rosey

Rosey is a lovely little lady looking for a nice, new home. She’s as cheerful as a cricket and she would like to share her good spirit with you! Rosey is a 5-year old, 15-pound terrier mix. She has a white, scruffy coat and is quite adorable. Volunteers rescued Rosey from a local pound.

onions

I don’t know about you, but I would really miss onions if they weren’t around. They are so great at adding flavor and punch to cooked dishes, and crunch and zest in their natural state. Raw or cooked, you can have your choice from a small group of “alliums,” or members of a family that include onions, garlic and chives.
