"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born - it's an idea, a state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, high school football, country music, and acoustic guitars. It's being hospitable, being devoted to front porches, magnolias, the good Lord, and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way."


Meatless Monday??

I haven't done a Meatless Monday post in a while. We've still been doing Meatless Monday at home, but my recipes have been pretty boring stuff.
And then yesterday, we skipped Meatless Monday because we were fundraising at a local restaurant for Elayna's All-Star softball team!
For everyone who told their server they were there for the All-Stars, 10% of their bill went to the team.
We handed out tickets at the door so that not only the people we invited participated, but anyone eating that night could help out too! We also got a few straight donations from people who weren't eating at that restaurant, but just walking by.
So we, of course, ate there also. The little kids got the traditional kids meals of mini corn dogs and a cheeseburger, and Shelbie and I shared a Cheeseburger Wrap (which is SOOOO yummy!).
We are so wrapped up in softball right now! I never realized what a serious business this can become.

Ain't that the truth!
