Good news?

Leigh at Bloggeritaville has made my day.
She has listed my cookbook Starting Fresh as one of her 'Great gifts to Give' for Christmas. She recently won hers, along with an apron in our Bloggerverary giveaway.
Of course, I think it is a great cookbook... but it is always nice to hear someone else say it. I wrote this cookbook as our kids were going off to college and starting their own homes. It is a good cook book for beginner cooks or for those looking for simple good home cooked recipes. We also included some words of advice that we collected from friends across the country.

Today~ some of those words of advice may be worth repeating.

Choose your friends carefully; they can lift you up , but they can also drag you down.

and one of Fannie Flagg's~
"Some time's the cleverest thing to say is nothing at all."

Thanks Leigh for the good news of the day.

That's great news, Sandi. I'm gonna keep this in mind since I've done NO Christmas shopping and have lots of people to buy for. Buying online is looking real good right about now.

I saw Leigh's post! She is a dear dear woman.

The cookbook sounds great and the apron was adorable.

The fried green tomatoes were good. Hubby says that he wants to use the same batter and make some onion rings. He was really impressed. The store that we bought it from is a farmers market type store right down the road from us. I am thinking about making gift basket for our family for Christmas from that store and use the batter mix.

Have a weekend Sandi!
