Tidbits and Recipes
Hey y'all! I have been struggling over what to write lately. Cub Scouts and school volunteer work have kept me pretty busy, along with participating in my writing workshops and all. So, I decided to do a little plugging here, and to do it, I will direct you to one of my favorite websites, All Things Southern, with your host, Shellie.

One of the things you get when you visit Shellie on her porch in Louisiana, is a bunch of awesome southern recipes. Some from her, some from visitors to the Porch. Here is one of my favorites taken directly from Shellie's newsletter...

"A Plum Peachy Pie"

2 cups sliced and peeled fresh peaches
2 cups sliced and peeled purple plums
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon almond extract
1 and ½ cups sugar
¼ cup quick-cooking tapioca
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
¼ teaspoon salt
Two Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts
Two tablespoon butter

We'll start by peeling and slicing two cups of fresh peaches and two cups of fresh purple plums. Then we'll stir 'em together with a tablespoon of lemon juice. Next, we'll take a small bowl and combine one and a half cups sugar with ¼ cup of quick-cooking tapioca, a teaspoon of grated lemon peel and a dash of salt. We'll need to gently stir this in with the fruit and let it stand about fifteen minutes. We're almost there. Just take a refrigerated pie crust and it withtwith this sweet pie filling, dot it with butter, cover it with another crust, seal and flute the edges and cut a couple pretty slits across the top.

You've done it! We'll cover the edges loosely with foil and cook it ten minutes in a 450 degree before reducingheat toeatto 350 and cooking it another 35 or 40 minutes until its golden brown and bubbly. YUM! You've got to try this one, folks. It's a Plum Peachy Pie-- and it's good eating, southern style. ~Shellie

"I believe that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can not baptize cats." - Larry the Cable Guy

A Tennessee man and an Alabama man were both fighting in a war and were captured by the enemy.
"Before we put you to death," said the enemy, "do you have any last requests?"
"Yes," said the Alabaman. "Could you play 'Yeah, Alabama' before you shoot me?"
"Sure," said the enemy. "How about you, Tennessean?"
"Could you shoot me before you play 'Yeah, Alabama?'"
