We made it to Houston!
Woke up in Hattiesburg, lunched in Beaux Bridge, ended the day in Houston with the love of my life.
After a year away from my husband and three full days on the road with MamaSchlo, all I wanted to do was cook a delicious dinner to share with my favorite people to celebrate this period of transition.

Guess who is NOT the biggest fan of legless/armless slitherin creatures?
Made it to Houston.
Enjoying "Wedding Wine",
Young's Barbera 2005
one of the three last bottles from the wedding.
Tonight Momma Schlo and I made a delicious dinner of chicken on
salad and stuffed dates with blackberry balsamic reduction,
quite a common thing in my kitchen.
For dessert I made cookie cups with sweet cream filling
and a blackberry topper, as seen above.
BTW they were all amazeballs.
My mom and I had been talking about doing a road trip together for a long time. Iam glad we finally did. We didn't kill each other, we have had a wonderful time. What a kind and open person, always ready to try to make my anxiety less by consoling me or to lend a hand to anyone she meets. She is an angel. Thanks Mom, for being so patient and kind.
I am glad to be back in Texas, reunited with my husband even if only for 5 days. I cannot get enough of him, I am smitten.
We unloaded my car and all of my worldly possessions are once again in one place. Whew. Now to celebrate the holidays and spend a few rummaging around in my boxes finding JUST the right things to take to Scotland...
Love & Light
