Sweet & Salty

For Mother’s Day this year, my {step}daughter & husband gave me both of Trisha Yearwood’s cookbooks.

Lately I’ve been watching her on her Food Network show, in fact since she started, this was the first weekend she was re-runs.  Ok so I can’t lie, my favorite between her and Pioneer Woman is still Ree Drummond, but I like Trisha’s show none-the-less!  It is set to record on my DVR at home.  Sorry I don’t like commercials!

My Mother-in-law watches her show too!  And on a recent episode she created Sweet & Saltines.  It just so happens to be in her Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood cookbook as well.

Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie left for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.

Nobody knows of the work it makes to keep the home together.  Nobody knows of the steps it takes, nobody knows – but Mother.

Mother – That was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries.

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts.  A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.

And remember that behind every successful woman….. is a basket of dirty laundry.

To all my bloggy friend Mothers!!!
