I know, I know, I haven’t blogged in awhile but let me tell you. I have been less stressed in 2015. Not just because I am blogging less though. I am also just making better decisions for my schedule.
This past weekend The Mister and I went on a little weekend getaway and while we were out and about this cookbook caught my eye. The Southern Living Community Cookbook: Celebrating Food & Fellowship in the American South by Sheri Castle.
It’s so pretty to look at! I picked it up and shuffled through some of the pages and realized that I had heard about some of these recipes from one of my close girlfriends. She’s from Georgia. She’s southern. She’s hospitable. She makes me smile and she makes awesome food! You know, I’m southern too, just not the kind of southern she is and I recently told her that she needed to teach me all about HER south. So begins my venture into some southern cooking.
The Mister is on vacation and has actually been at home for dinner. Last night, in celebration of him being home, I made Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy from this cute cookbook.
It was sooooo good! I’ve never made mushroom gravy and oh my goodness! It’s divine!
I served our Salisbury Steak with broccoli and then we enjoyed a couple of episodes of Downton Abbey.
I chose to buy this cookbook because it actually had recipes that I would make. You know, sometimes you pick up a book and there’s like 2 recipes in the whole thing you MIGHT make. Not this one. I’m gonna be cookbooking it for awhile.
Get ready for some cookbook eats. I’m excited!
