The item number is #28-1401132, and they're $19.95.
I love the idea that you can customize them to say anything you want. Does this look like something that bebe Abby and Grammie needs? That's what I'm thinkin'...

I'm a huge fan of anything cast iron, and Lodge products are really good...

And how is your day going???? It’s raining in Heavensville, more rain predicted through the weekend, so that’s not helping Miss Merry Sunshine here.
I was making breakfast, reached up in the pantry for my sugar free syrup, dropped a bottle of dark Karo Syrup, splat on the stone floor. Yep, they still make the bottles out of glass, did you know that? Hell yes, it broke. And it was a full bottle, too. There was gooey syrup everywhere.
Thank goodness for hubby. It took him forever to get that sticky mess up. And just now, I’m drinking my morning coffee, yep, spilled it on my desktop.
And Mollie had to be dried with a towel after her morning foray into the wilds of the soggy yard, she was one wet little pooch!
And it’s only 11am. Oh joy, can’t wait for the rest of the day to unfold…

In our family we have breakfast, lunch and dinner, except on Sunday when the noon meal becomes dinner. I’ve always loved it, too. Just something about Sunday morning in the kitchen. But now hubby works on Sunday, there is no family at home, so my “dinner” is a soup and a salad “lunch.” And even that is scaled back because I took a walk on the wild side and had a sesame seed bagel at with my coffee at Donut Bank this morning. Grrrr! And all the time I was eating that damn bagel, I was watching all the other people scarfing down donuts, cinnamon rolls, long johns, muffins, all the good stuff. ROARRRRRRRR
But I remember when Sunday dinner was a big production, fried chicken, meat loaf, roast beef, wonderful veggies in butter sauce, hot bread, killer desserts. Oh, those were the days. We just ate and enjoyed it. Didn’t really think about the fat or the cholesterol, just enjoyed the meal.
Now that my brain is always conscious of what I’m eating, even when it’s bad, I don’t have that freedom that I once did, and I miss it.
So tonight, I’m having Sunday “supper.” I got some scallops at the store for hubby, salmon for me, a little garlic whole wheat pasta, a big salad, and voila, Sunday supper. Not quite the same as pork chops, mashed potatoes, gravy and biscuits, along with a warm piece of pie. :o(
Is it worth it? All this healthy eating? Sometimes, I wonder, girlfriends, sometimes I seriously do.
