lemon pound cake

Sweet Child of Mine

So our boy went back to school this weekend and while the thought made me sad leading up to Saturday, I didn’t cry any tears upon our departure. On the drive to Ft. Worth, my son played appropriate songs for my distraction and enjoyment—the playlist included some George Strait hits and notably Andrea Bocelli’s “Time to Say Goodbye,” “Don’t You Forget About Me” by Simple Minds and Guns & Roses’ “Sweet Child of Mine!” I couldn’t cry for laughing so hard. He’s going to have another great year as a Horned Frog.
But I have to share with you a poignant list from my dear friend’s post on Facebook that absolutely hits a homerun in describing why moms cry when they take their babies off to college. Sniff.

I have heard you and I aim to please. You may have noticed the past two weeks’ menus have included two salad options and the response has been good. This week I’m down to one salad because I snuck a yummy summer soup in… there are also notations for gluten-free (GF) and vegetarian (V) menu options. If you are interested in smaller portions, you must follow the link to order online where you have the option in some cases to choose a half-size entree item.

One other item of note for this week’s menu – if you’ve seen the Spiralizer that was trending earlier this year – the pasta salad features Zucchini Noodles AND Pasta Noodles for all of the zoodle-noodle-kit-and-kaboodle fun you can handle!!!

As always, I’m here for you if you have questions, concerns or suggestions. Have a great week! -Ruth 214-675-1932
