Years ago when I was dating my husband Jim, I had him over for lunch to show him my "mad cooking" skills, hoping to impress him a bit. I remember I made a recipe for dill chicken salad with whole wheat popovers from one of my Southern Living Light cookbooks. Well, considering we celebrate our 24th anniversary next month I guess that chicken salad/popover lunch worked it's magic on him.

My son Tyler is home from Oklahoma State this weekend and somehow it just ended up being the two of us for lunch today. I have been eyeing this recipe for some time over at ourbestbites.com and decided today (the first day of Fall) was the day to try it. As he does every weekend Ty was skyping with his friend Kari who is 1/2 Thai and telling her we were having a Thai Coconut Soup. She texted back......TOM KHA KAI!!!!!!!!!!! LOL! So........here is our Easy Tom Kha Kai Soup. I can't tell you how flavorful yet easy this soup is. This one's for you Kari!

Monday is my son Tanner's 19th birthday! I seriously can not believe he is already 19! Here is a picture of the two of us at his high school graduation a couple of years ago. He is a now sophomore at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater and doing great. I'm a very proud mom!

Awhile back our friends Kevin and Jennifer came to spend the weekend with us. I love when they visit and I always try to think of something extra special for breakfast. This gorgeous bread boat that I found on Pinterest (but tweaked into my own recipe) was delicious and definitely company worthy!
Luckly I have a Panera Bread not too far away because I adore their breads and their little asiago cheese demi was perfect for this. I was tempted to try the regular sized loaf but I'm glad I resisted the urge. Once cut into pieces the size is a perfect serving for breakfast. I served it with my Stain Glass Fruit Salad and it paired together wonderfully!

The other day I wanted to make some comfort food and was craving
tuna so I decided to make an old fashioned tuna casserole. I haven't
had one in years! Then I remembered that I had 3 cans of DongWon
spicy Korean tuna in the pantry. If you haven't tried tuna in kimchi
sauce let me tell you that it's fantastic! It has such a great depth of
flavor, it's a little spicy and the tuna is in nice big meaty chunks. I
keep it on hand for making kimbap, the Korean version of sushi.
