What I've Been Up To...

...while making our little temporary house feel like home. :-)

A few simple changes were needed.
For instance, every time I opened the tiny pantry, I felt sad.

Just a little clean, white shelf paper -
and I felt much better! ;-)

Finally getting some meals on the table,
that didn't come out of a sack! Yay!

And I'm learning to cook on a gas stove for the first time and I like it! :-)

Our ~Grandy's Meal~ :-)

Growing up, one of my favorite fast food restaurants was Grandy's. :-) Fried chicken, baked beans, those rolls...yum! We don't have a Grandy's in our town, and actually the last time Mr. H. and I ate at one, it was before we had children and the establishment left a lot to be desired in the way of cleanliness and customer service! But...we still enjoy having "Grandy's" at home!

It is not a homemade meal in any sense of the word ;-)
but it's a super fast, go-to supper that the family loves.
Especially Mr. H. :-)

It starts with some really good fried chicken tenders, "fritter style".
These aren't your usual frozen chicken tenders!

Some good ol' fried okra, pre-breaded.

Instant (gasp!) mashed potatoes and brown gravy. ;-)

Baked beans, Grandy's style, with lots
of brown sugar and cracked pepper.

And those rolls...
Just a little butter and honey added to roll dough
before baking sure does remind us of those Grandy's rolls!

Our ~Grandy's Meal~ a favorite at Heritage Schoolhouse. :-)
