The Three F's

No, no! Not those kind of F's. These kind...Family, Food and Flowers.
Last night our oldest grandson spent the night with us and we had his most requested meal: Boney chicken, edamame beans, corn, mashed potatoes, gravy, green salad, strawberries and blueberries. He also requested biscuits, but I drew the line at those. For those of you unfamiliar with boney chicken, it's simply "normal" roasted chicken. When he was quite a bit smaller he'd only had boneless chicken breasts. The first time I made chicken for him he wanted to know how I got the bones in there...hence the boney chicken. It's a standard now! All was yummy, we had an early bedtime after reading some of Paddle to the Sea. It was a lovely evening. Hope yours was too.

Boney chicken?? That is TOO cute! Must be a treat to have grandchildren. My mom used to say it was WONDERFUL!! She said with a grandchild you could play with them, fill them with candy and soda pop, and when they got too wired send them home to their parents:-)Looking forward to my turn!! Happy you enjoyed your little fella...and a bedtime story...awwwwww...E, you are making me SMILE BIG HERE:) Have a great day.
Hugs, Marylou

Thanks Ellen for the update on the squirrels. I have reported my own theories on my blog:-) Ya know, you and I could certainly consider the CIA or FBI as a post retirement side job...we could gather up all sorts of wildlife and start our own defense department. We could probably do a better job than the boys in DC are doing now:) Hey, raccoons are already in disguise so we could start with them...maybe call us the JFA..Jobs for Animals:-) I know, I tend to get carried away. It's the A.D.D......hey look, there goes a squirrel. I better go make sure he is not a SPY!!!
Love ya, Marylou

I love edamame, it is the one thing my daughter will eat when we go out for needless to say we don't go out for sushi much, unless I bring along a PB&J in my purse :) Glad you had fun with your grandson, he is lucky to have such a cool grandma!
