I have so many things to write about I don’t know where to start. Okay, I’ll go in chronological order … Earlier this week I was reading a devotional by Sharon Jaynes titled God’s Gifts in Dark Times.  I started out planning to skip through it, get to the end and move on.  However, right off the bat she laid out Romans 8:32.  Romans 8 is one of my favorite chapters of the Bible.  I got interested and started reading.  She wrote “I stood at Steven’s bedroom door, watching this now 17-year-old son asleep in a tangle of sheets and limbs. He was six feet tall, needed a shave and sported a mass of shaggy, thick brown hair.  I thought about how much I loved this boy.”    My mind wandered a little because  I have two boys who are grown men, but are still my boys.  I love them to distraction and felt that familiar sad tug at my heart as I read more from Sharon’s story.  You can click HERE to read it yourself.  I pray it will bless you as it blessed me.  Speaking of blessings … my cousin Jill and her husband Jeff stopped by this week!
Oh what a blessing to have these two in our home.  We laughed ourselves silly, ate everything from fresh homemade dinner rolls to my best Dittmer Meatloaf and threw in an Orange Lemon Chiffon cake.  Yes, we did some eating 🙂  I love making bread and especially love to have folks to share it with!
We visited Jack Daniel Distillery just down the road, then ventured on to Falls Mill where Jeff took some awesome winter/spring photos while we shopped for some fresh corn grits!  (The best around!)  I made Cheese Grits casserole and can’t believe I haven’t bragged, I mean blogged about it in the past.  However, when I went looking for the recipe via my blog I didn’t find it.  Well,  I will share the recipe with you very soon!  So many recipes … so little time 🙂

Speaking of recipes, The Brown Eyed Baker posted a recipe today that makes me want to go directly to the kitchen, do not pass GO, and do not collect $200.  I want to make these Homemade Snickers Bars.  But I can’t.  My husband is training for the Los Angeles marathon (March 18, 2012) and says I am impeding his running speed with my baking (!)  So I have made him a promise to keep the sweets and treats out of the house.  I am sure you may be thinking, “isn’t he a big boy, can’t he just so ‘no’?” when he doesn’t want sweets.  The answer is NO.  He cannot say NO.  So I have to help:)  Here we go again baking vicariously through some of my favorite websites.  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you:  Homemade Snickers Bars.
This picture really should be criminal. I think I will “Pin it”. Have you done any pinning lately?  I would love to have you click on the little red Follow Me On Pinterest button on the right hand side of this blog. Happy Pinning!  And so it is the end of the week and my weekend roundup.  Seriously, if you have dessert on your radar this weekend, do yourself a favor and make this Best Bread Pudding recipe.  You won’t be disappointed.  I guarantee it.
If yeasty dinner rolls aren’t your cup of tea, be sure and check out my double recipe post for Chipotle Sweet Potato Biscuits or Catherine’s Chipotle Cheddar Biscuits along with some Chicken Piccata.  Yum.

I wish you all a great weekend full of many blessings and happy cooking!
