We just got back from a week of R & R with my parents, and it was so nice to have some time to reconnect as a family and have some long talks with our kids. Something about vacation, and being out in nature seems to bring out some fruitful conversations. It is so important to take that time out, because regular life can get so hectic and those moments seem fewer and fewer.
We also enjoyed some yummy foods! My mother makes these fabulous “Party meat pies” that are scrumptious!

She also makes the best bbq pork sandwiches that are so juicy and flavorful.

One night we tried a Taste of Home’s recipe for Turkey meatloaf, and it was awesome!
