Gaining 5 pounds in a weekend

Every time I visit my hometown of Texarkana I gain five pounds. I blame it on my mom’s cooking! Or maybe it’s that we watch a lot of TV AND my mom’s cooking. Either way, it happens. Last weekend, I went home to see my parents, since my dad had a hernia operation (which went really well).

My mom made homemade spaghetti filled with veggies, peach pie and quesadillas. Yum Yum!

Like I’ve mentioned before, she is a pastry chef instructor, so the lattice work was all done expertly at home—I’ll have to make a video of it the next time I go home to show everyone how easy she makes it look!

Anyway, I just wanted to show off some of the meals we ate and how cute her kitchen staples are, with chalkboard labels.

Have a great weekend!
