Oh. You mean me?

We had a charming young woman from Baton Rouge come to stay this weekend for fun and relaxation.

Saturday night we had my brother, Lyman's son and the young lady to a dinner of boiled shrimp, baked onions, blanched Italian flat beans, stewed potatoes with garlic chives, mushrooms in Madeira sauce, and grilled T-bone steaks. (T-bones on sale this week for $4.99 a pound).

Sunday was quiet.

Yesterday we cooked fried fish, fried okra, fried potatoes, and fresh cucumbers in vinegar for Lyman's father and mother. He was out of pocket on Sunday, at a bank affair in Jena.

Fried catfish is a favorite meal for both Lyman's parents.

For dessert, I baked a huge deep-dish blackberry pie using a recipe from The Evolution of Cajun & Creole Cuisine. There was a problem, possibly using frozen berries, so the thing turned out runny but delicious. It should still keep them happy for a few days.

Big Daddy doesn't care for cake. It was his birthday pie. He turned 87 on May 30.

Next month those two will celebrate their 65th anniversary.
