Peanuts n Pepsi

An old friend from North Carolina reminded me recently about an ol’southern tradition.   First – get an ice cold Pepsi in a glass bottle—- put in a handful of regular salted peanuts –after they settle on the bottom and a few swallows later a couple will come out while you are drinking— the taste is an original southern desert!   One that even Barbara Mandrell sang about.  Bottoms up y’all!  Enjoy!

Spring in Oregon can be anything.

We have had the most amazing spring here in Oregon this year.  However yesterday the weather seemed to turn to the more typical rain.  I welcomed the rain, even welcomed the chilly weather and threw the winter blankets back on all the beds…. and for dinner, I created the perfect soup to complement the weather.   Here is a favorite of mine.

Creamy Potato & Bacon Soup

Enjoy!

P.S. – the sun is back today and I’m re-packing those winter blankets…again.
