This is SERIOUS business people.....

When it comes to food....the Moody's don't mess around.


I first fell in love with food after we remodeled our kitchen about 4 years ago. We did what the experts tell you to do.
We bought the worst house on the best street.

But it was bad.

I mean BAD.

The kitchen, and especially the oven and stove, were bad enough for me to wave a big white flag and say...I GIVE UP....I'm not going to try to "cook".
We lived on pasta, bagel bites (which I still love), and those fantastic Costco pot stickers that you find in the freezer section.

There isn't anything wrong with any of those things. I still serve them up from time to time...and we enjoy them. But feeding 4 hungry guys...I needed more... and when your stove takes FOREVER to heat up and even longer to cool down and never quite gets to boiling...or just burns.

Forget about it.

Cookies that stay raw in the middle, cakes that don't rise.

Why bother?

When I was planning my kitchen I chose to splurge on my oven and stove and scrimp a little on my floors and cabinets.

I have no regrets.

Once the kitchen was done I jumped into cooking, full force, and loved it.

I still love it.

It's relaxing and enjoyable...and it doesn't hurt when you have 3 young men....and an old man....who love to eat.

So tonight....we go with grilled cheese and short rib sandwiches with pickled caramelized onions and arugula.

I love bon appetit magazine.

I love their photographs (who knew their was such a thing as a food stylist), their readers' favorite restaurant recipes and their Quick Everyday Foods section.

Would you like to come for dinner?

We would love to have you. But you aren't allowed to do the dishes.

Thems the house rules!!

Bon Appetit !!

p.s. The recipe for the ah-mazing short rib sandwich is here...YUM!!!

Mark your calendars....

February 14 will be the start date for The Feather Tree Auction in honor of our Sweet Home Alabama Girl...Penny McAllister.

You can read all about it here...and stay tuned for more details.
Please note...all proceeds will go to the Acute Leukemia Chapter.
