Love Your Neighbor Cookbook

A friend and fellow Vestry member, Randy Byrd, at Palmer has a blog called Love Your Neighbor Cookbook . Randy is one of the most faithful people I know. He loves working with the youth at Palmer and is a fantastic musician. He's a great cook and loves to be in the kitchen at church. Randy and I went through some 'stuff' together this year as ministry leaders and vestry members - it was not at all pleasant, but Randy held firm and was both faith and grace-filled through the entire ordeal. He and his wife Sherry have been married for 38 years, but you'd think they are still newlyweds when you meet them. They can't take their eyes off each other and it is so fun to see them together.

I'm pleased to say that two of my recipes are included on Randy's blog - neither of them is mine and he included that disclaimer with each recipe. He asked for the Oyster Pie recipe when he heard me talking about it after Thanksgiving last year. And he also included the Shrimp Pilau recipe that I made for the Vestry meeting this week. I've added a link in my sidebar.

Oh, my goodness! You're so kind.

I hadn't visited your blog in a while, but did today, as I was doing some updating to the "Love Your Neighbor Cookbook."

I had placed a link to the Merritt Family blog in my "Box" at Facebook. But recently, Box has been acting weird, and I decided to import all of my favorite links into my cookbook blog. While testing the links, I discovered this wonderfully kind post. You make me blush. Thank you so much for being a true friend.
