Chocolate pie, rain and homemade soup.


Since it was a very windy and rainy day and John couldn't go golfing he got in the kitchen and made homemade chocolate pie. The whole pie was made from stratch and it is so good. 

 Ahh......his master piece. LOL 

We had thunder, lightning and some heavy rain.  Fred was not a happy camper. 


Woke up to light rain and 49 degrees.  The rain finally stopped around lunch time but the high today was 53 degrees.  This kind of weather is just right for homemade vegetable soup so that is what I made for supper.  The only thing missing was the cornbread.  I ran out of my Martha White cornmeal and have not been able to find any in this area so we had crackers instead. 

The soup hit the spot.  Sadly, there was none left over.  Homemade soup makes me think of my Grandmaw Burns everytime I make it.  I can still remember enjoying a bowl of her homemade soup. There was nothing better. 

The forecast for tomorrow indicates warmer temperatures and sunny skies.  Sounds good to me. 

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe. 


  1. Wanted you and John to know that I did call A & E, and during the conversation confirmed (3 times) that they will work on the fridge in the motorhome. I'll have the guys on the refuge take it out and put it in the middle of my floor. Thanks again for your help.

    Today's weather is a great improvement, isn't it?

    1. Good to hear Judy, safe travels to LA. Finally the sun comes out.

  2. What is it about firefighters and their cooking?? If that is a pre-requisite it's a good thing Dennis is retired...He isn't a cook, BUT he is a grill master if I do all of the prep!
