I have a recipe from my friend’s wife, and I asked if I could share it because it’s sooooooooooooo good and they said yes!  Woo Hoo!  Check this yummy stuff out!  It’s sooooooo good!

“Turkey Pecan Florentine

          with Bowties”

This is one of her family’s favorite dishes.   She makes this dish whenever they have any leftover turkey or when she roasts a turkey breast & there’s leftovers.  The pecans give this dish a wonderful taste and a nice nutty flavor!  mmm

    Hey Marie, I love those old photos! Happy Friday and enjoy the weekend!


    Mm… that recipe sounds delicious! We had a full day yesterday. We went down to my mother’s and saw her and my grandmother. We had to leave early because my grandmother’s old Pomeranian needed to go to the vet. Then, since it was still early, we stopped off at my brother-in-law’s, and chit-chatted with him and his wife for a while. Then we still had one more stop, and that was my daughter’s dojo. She had an aikido lesson for old time’s sake. We didn’t get home until 11pm. Had a great day


      I am happy for you that you had such a full and great happy moments day! Such quality time with your family is priceless. What the heck is aikido… lol I am so envious of you still having your gramma and mom around. Give them hugs for me and thank God you still have them with you. Seriously you should think what would you miss most if they were gone, and then do it with them or spend time with them doing just that and remember every minute, take pictures and then take an extra one. You won’t regret my friend, and that goes for all of you reading this. Thank God that the one you love most is still with you and take an extra minute for that extra look or hug. God bless you all.
