Back home....10 pounds heavier!

Ahhh, back home. I had a great trip down south to see the fam. It was hot, but lots of fun! I managed to make it there and back without losing any of my kids or killing them.....not bad if I do say so myself. Applause anyone?
Well, before I left I had a blog entry that included all the wonderful food that my sweet southern home has to offer. I am now proud to say that I was able to enjoy each item on the list at least once. I enjoyed about 30 pounds of crawfish total. I only went 3 times so you do the math. My dad has a tab at Shane's (best crawfish in Shreveport) because he sold Shane some security cameras. I guess I owe my Dad and the existence of "high" crime in Shreveport for the many pounds of those dirty, but delicious critters! It was Heavenly!

I don't know how many Southern Maid donuts I put away during my 11 day stay, but I can honestly say it was not enough to tide me over to my next visit. I miss them already!

You can't go to Southern Maid without getting an icee too! I enjoyed quite a few of the wonderfully slushy treats. They just don't make them the same up here. I blame it on the altitude, because that's what I blame everything else on up here.

Ahhh, Nicky's! I love me some good mexican food! Is was only able to go to Nicky's once, but it was sooo good!

One of the first things I picked up on my grocery list down there was Blue Bell ice cream. I was amazed at all the new wonderful flavors. The first tub I went through was the one pictured called "Good Heavens". If you haven't tried it, I would highly recommend it. It has a mixture of Homemade Vanilla, Dutch Chocolate and Cookie Dough. Ummm, umm, good!

I have to say I was very happy with the fine selection of goodies, down there in the southern states. I'm never disapointed! Thank you to all the people that contributed to my gaining a good 10 pounds over the last two weeks. I will never forget you!

I can't believe you only gained 10 pounds. Now I know what my problem is.....I live in the south! If you want another excuse to visit and eat, Uncle Rowland and I are getting remarried on July 4, and we're gonna have a big Texas Bar-B-Que, Bluegrass Band, Fishin Tournament, Skeet Shoot, Homemade Icecream cookoff.....Wedding Texas Style. You can even wear your jeans! Visit my blog, too! Love ya! Oh, and Caci says that I am her favorited aunt, but Windy said it first....it's just that Caci's older and so I've been her favorite longer. What's your take on all of this?

I understand about missing Southern food. Oklahomans wouldn't know good food if it hit them in the face. Glad you're back!
