I moved from a large Metroplex (Dallas/Fort Worth) to a very small town in Georgia. Honestly, this town would make Mayberry RFD look like a hugh Metroplex. It was quite a culture shock. Before I moved my dear friend and I were talking about opening a catering service and due to circumstances, that never worked out. My way of cooking has changed quite a bit since I am from Texas and this is the Deep South. Coming here to "retire" was one thing but after a year my daughter and granddaughter decided to come here and they moved in with us. She works part-time as a substitute in the elementary school and since I am disabled it's a blessing she is here with me. I have a Son and Daughter-in-law in Dallas with two other grandchildren that I miss dearly. I love to bake but I, myself,am not a big sweet fan. Have to have a real craving. Since I had such an extended array of friends and family back home I still have trouble cooking for a smaller family but isn't that what we have freezers for? I also now have a garden and love to do canning. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
