24 Aug My Momma is Awesome
Elk City, Ok — Every year I think I say the same thing but it bears repeating! My Momma is such an excellent cook and I am amazed how she can keep up and find new things to cook. I like cooking, but the hardest part for me it to think of something TO cook. Mom has had years of practice and it definitely shows. Thank you, Momma, for doing what you do best. You keep us all in line and take care of us like no other. You are very much loved not only for your cooking, but because you are awesome and are worthy of a post of your very own. I thank God you are mine! Here are just a few things that we get to eat. No special reason for these amazing things, believe me this is her normal cooking.
These are called ‘Good-for-you muffins’. Basically its a bran muffin with walnuts and raisins, but it literally tastes like heaven. My favorite. What’s a muffin without lots of butter?!
This is the best pie in the whole wide world. My favorite upon favorites, ‘Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie’.
The 10th was her 60th birthday! We celebrated by a surprise get together with family at our local Mexican restaurant, Pedro’s. It was a fun time. Then we headed back to Granny’s house (aka Momma) and had cake and opened presents. The cake was a mutual effort between my sister Katie, Liz and I. I have to say it turned out great! Just what we all hoped it would look like.
A couple days later we gave her another birthday present. She’s been wanting to paint her kitchen. Well, job accomplished! She now has nice, bright red walls! Her favorite color. Happy Birthday, Momma. You are a special woman. I love you. Here’s to many more birthdays to come!
Be safe and God bless!
