  1. Thanks for your sweet comment Velva. I have been so busy lately with meetings, taking care of Grands, and getting ready for holidays that I haven't been able to post much on my blog. The Red Beans and Rice is delicious and I really like Emeril's recipe. Your cocktail sounds so yummy. Will have to give that a try. I love a good cocktail in the evening.Carolyn/A Southerners Notebook


  2. I have been wondering about that cocktail – it sounds so wonderful. It looks so pretty … and harmless. And I could go for a taste of summer right now… (she says as she plants spruce tops in the outside pots…)
