Last weekend I decided to try Southernlady's recipe for Kentucky Woodford Pudding. It just sounded so delicious I could not wait to taste it. The cake was easy to put together and as it baked, I made the sauce. Southernlady couldn't have been more right, that sauce was out of this world, slap yo momma twice good! I kept some for us and sent some to work with my husband who said it was a super big hit. Hop on over to Southernlady's blog and try it out. You will not be sorry.
By now you might be wondering why I don't have a recipe this week to share (besides that wonderful pudding!). Well, I was planning on baking this week but after learning that my brother, who is in the Navy, is in Libya, I didn't have the heart. My stomach has been in knots all week.
He is assigned to the USS Kearsarge (photo above) and was in Iraq. No shocker there. And up until last Thursday, we could email each other pretty regularly. But then the news of Libya started coming out and the Kearsarge was mentioned on MSN as being assigned to head over. I emailed by brother who said "so much for operational security" but yeah, it is true. We emailed a few more times, with reassurance from him that they were just chasing their own tails in the water and nothing more. Then the weekend strikes started. I emailed him again but with no response. I was pretty worried so I found the Facebook page for the Kearsarge and all the relatives were saying the same thing, no communication from their loved ones on the ship. So we all are watching the TV news closely and checking Facebook for any word. It is good and bad that they mention his ship a lot. I know what he is doing but I am almost afraid that if Libya strikes back, they will focus on the lead ship. So it's many prayers and hopes that this will end quickly and I can breathe again.
I will try to get back to some type of routine next week, if my nerves hold out, that is! Hopefully by then, I will have something delicious to share.
