|Thanks, M & J!|
When my friend Kathy comes in for a visit, we usually have a luncheon with her sister, Maureen, and her childhood friend, June. Since Maureen is planning to move to Virginia by early 2012, I decided to do a 'Southern- style' luncheon; or what a Yankee girl thinks is that style :) .

Since I was on my "staycation", I was interested in easy breezy entertaining. I think we all had a really good time.
There is a supermarket here that makes the best fried chicken, and if you give them a day's notice, it will be piping hot out of the fryer for you at whatever time you ask to pick it up; my "baked" beans of choice are Bush's (that Irish setter knows what he is 'talking' about); and even Paula Deen herself has been known to use a canned biscuit (I know 'cause I watch her show!). I did exert myself a little bit, and made my potato salad. I couldn't give you specific measurements, it is way too much fun to "eyeball it" and have someone else (in this case, Kathy) do a taste test.
|I needed a second look, ah, memories!|
Let's talk dessert. I was happy to bid on two items lovingly baked by the very talented Concetta of the Cafe fame, who was one of the participants in Baking Up A Cure sponsored by Lark's Country Heart.

I won both, and they arrived in time from Florida for this luncheon, and it was the win that kept on giving, as each of the girls took some home! I was able to sponsor a walker for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk. (I lost a dear friend 13 years ago to breast cancer.)
