There are many things that makes me recall memories of those who have past. I have been blessed with some great ladies in my life. I am pretty sure that they are my pull to things vintage. It keeps all those past good memories alive.
I also believe that food is a memory trigger too. I love re-creating recipes handed down to me throughout the years. This past weekend my loving memories have been in full force. At times making me a little weep eyed.
First I found a skirt that reminded me of my Grandma Vern. She would of paired it with a white blouse, a pair of pearls and a pair of her Grasshopper flats. You can learn more about this skirt, along with a few other of my weekend finds on our new "Latest Finds" page.
Then for the second time this week we made my Aunt June Bug's, famous rice, per my sons. I love it because its three only ingredients-Jasmine Rice (Aldi's), Kerry Gold Butter, and sweet condensed milk.
The Jasmine Rice is my new go to for rice. I have officially said good-bye to Minute Rice. Once you try it, you will understand why and I promise you will love it.
The simple recipe is as follows:
4-6 Servings of Cooked Rice
1 Stick of Kerry Gold Butter or butter of choice
1 Can of Sweet Condensed Milk
Mix together with cooked rice an wa la!
I hope you enjoy the rice and thank you for sharing my memories with me this Monday.
Till next time!
I hope this finds you all running and screaming excitedly into the weekend, like we are around here. Many things are going on today and the best thing of all is that our little Sweet Adeline will be arriving tonight with her parents. Dan and I so can't wait to spoil her in the upcoming days.
I am also excited that the door of Triple "R' is starting to open again. Reconnecting with all of you and taking our life long baby in some what of a new direction with great things on the horizon. As things unfold I will start to let the cat out of the bag so to speak.
We are excited to be on this journey in our life right now, even though it is stressful at times. So sit back and enjoy the moment with us as we start to kick open another door here on the ridge!
Have a great weekend!
Happy Mid Summer all! I hope this finds all of you well and happy.
