This is a group where we can sit back and enjoy chatting with each other rather than on the recipes. Hopefully in return this will free up some of the recipe comment sections of unwanted chatter.

Thanks and have fun!!!

i ALWAYS TRY TO MAKE A WONDERFUL MEAL FOR MY HUSBAND ON FATHER'S DAY.Since both of our parents are gone on both sides. He never had that before, and since the 21 years that we have been a part of each others lives, I have always made a big effort especially on holidays, birthdays and special occasions just to let him know how special he really is. He claims it doesn't matter, but I know that it does, so I try to do what I can withing my limited abilities to let him know that he is still as special today as he was when we first started dating.

I always make a personalized card, and wrap gifts individually to seem like it is more than they really are, just to see the look on his face in wonderment of what is inside and underneath the wrapping paper, when I bring them into the room. Most of you know how much he loves great food, so I make many of his favorite food items on his special day as well.

This Father's Day I plan to make Grilled Herb Rubbed Rib Eye Steaks with Garlic Herb Butter, Baked Twice and Just as Nice Potatoes, Reduced Fat Stuffed Tomato Cups with Spinach & Feta, Black Truffle Oil Roasted Asparagus, Cukes N Sour Cream w/Sweet Red Peppers & Onions, Garlic & Herb Pull Apart Bubble Bread, & Peanutty Peanut Butter Cheesecake.

The only bad thing is my daughter won't be here until a few days later if at all. But he always loves it when ever she does come. One year we cooked his dinner together and it was so much fun. Cooking is fun for me, especially when I am preparing it for my family. I know many people enjoy going out and there is nothing wrong with that, but I know that my husband REALLY LOVES IT WHEN I prepare the meal and menu myself, plus I love doing it. What are you doing this Father's Day and what is on your menu?

Update on Norma DeRemer !!

Wanted to give you an update on our Dear Friend Norma DeRemer----

Norma has taken a turn for the worst and is now in hospice care receiving morphine for her pain for her cancer. She has been asleep most of the time.

Her family is asking for prayers. Please pray for Norma.

Thank you.

I have some leftover raw carrots, celery, and broccoli from a vegetable and dip tray I had at a birthday party yesterday. What else would I need to make a vegetable soup out of these? The simpler the better.
Thank you!

Our Friend Norma DeRemer needs prayers

Our friend and member of Just a Pinch, Norma DeRemer, has just given an update on her condition. Just today, she got news from her doctor that her five tumors have grown leading to her liver and are now ALL stage 4 cancer. One is very close to blocking her liver. They are deciding what the next plan of attack will be on these tumors. So PLEASE lets all band together and send strong prayers and thoughts Norma's way. She is very weak and sure could use our encouragement. Thank you all so much.

Wet, wet Christmas

We have had so much rain it is crazy. Lot of roads closed and flooded area. I am suppose to go get my mama in the morning she lives about 40 minutes from us for Christmas but I'm not sure we will be able to get there because of flooding. At least my brother lives in walking distance so he can take her to his house for Christmas so she won't be alone. Praying for the rain to stop
