My Week In The Blogosphere!

Posted on Updated on

Ashton Villa is where the proclamation was read.

Galveston Island had  our very own special holiday over the past week!  It’s called Juneteenth.  It was a big deal this year as it was the 150th anniversary of Juneteenth.  We celebrated it here in a big way!  There was a Ms Juneteenth Pageant.  We had our annual Al Edwards Banquet.  This was a fundraiser for education.  I went to the Juneteenth Gala on Thursday.  It was honoring several people who has made the day one that is celebrated on a national level.  Through this all, we spent time registering people to vote and educating them as to the importance of voting.  I am posting the link to the blog post that I did a week ago.  If you didn’t get to read it then, it will help you understand what Juneteenth is!

Here is this week’s blogs that I am following and really like!

The Chatterbox Chick is funny.  She is totally irreverent, and pretty thought provoking.  Plus I like her pic of TBBT!

I just had to follow My Little Rock when I saw “organized kitchen”.  I am trying to learn that one.  Then I glanced at some of her recipes.  Some I can already eat as a vegetarian and some like Dr Pepper Pulled Pork and Chorizo & Cheese Quesadillas that I can make vegetarian.  Yes you can make vegetarian pulled pork!  And I live in Texas where Dr. Pepper is the state drink!

Trkingmomoe has some great recipes.  And they actually grow their own pineapples!

And my posts of the week are:

And I just had to share this poem.  Denise just got back from D.C. with a side trip to Arlington Cemetery.  I was there in April.  She expressed so beautifully what I felt.

Here are this weeks recipes.  All are being tested in Chez Casey.  And they have the Jim Casey seal of approval!  If you didn’t get a chance to see them, here are the links!
