Caney Fork River Valley Grille

While we were in Nashville Tennessee this weekend for the World Archery Tournament we had the opportunity to visit with family and eat...We found this great restaurant close to where we were staying.  It's called the Caney Fork River Valley Grille.  

The decor alone would have attracted quite a lot of visitors but the food was really good.  The pulled pork was delicious and the key lime and peanut butter chocolate pie was just the best.

 And then there was the music...Real Country by some very talented musicians.  All in all it was a delicious, toe tapping experience.

Isn't he a handsome fellow?

The taxidermy was equally captivating.

Thanks be to God!


Please visit Judith at Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday and share in the beauty offered there.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
celebrating the beauty in
Giving Thanks.

must be open to it!
Thanksgiving Cinquain

Give thanks
For those we love
Gathering together


Thanks be to God!!!

A Friend In Need of Recipes...

There's really no grand story behind this recipe except that a friend, Theresa, at Aussie Coffee Shop is wanting some new recipes. Maybe you could help her by sharing some with her and posting them for us as well. So here is my offering...

Chicken Brunswick Stew

2 medium onions, chopped
3 large chicken breasts
2 (15 oz.) cans cream style corn
1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1 (12 oz.) bottle chili sauce
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can chicken broth
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup butter, cut up
2 tablespoons cider vinegar (or red wine vinegar)
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon pepper sauce (Tabasco Sauce)

Place onion in a 4 quart slow cooker; place chicken over onion. Add corn and remaining ingredients . Cook, covered at HIGH 4 hours or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken, shred and return to stew.

This is wonderful with Sour Dough Bread or warm French bread. It really is good any time of the year because cooking in the crockpot doesn't heat the house and yes, I do fix it all year round.

Wishing all a grand weekend!!!
Thanks be to God!

When you've finished posting your recipe for Theresa. Please link to it here so we can all share in the delights of you recipe box!

Once Upon a Recipe

I can think of no better way to send out the old and bring in the new than with a really scrumptious chocolate cake. Not just any chocolate cake but a BLACK MAGIC CAKE. For a number of years this recipe was on the box of Hershey's Cocoa. One day, I can't tell you why, I decided to write it down for fear the new box would not have the recipe and I would have thrown out the old. Hence, out with the old and in with the new (a very bad analogy!)

This cake has been a staple in our house for nearly 35 years. I started making it when we lived in Oklahoma and so it continues. Please enjoy!

Black Magic Cake
1 3/4 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup strong coffee (or 2 teaspoon instant coffee in 1 cup hot water)
1 cup butter or sour milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1t teaspoon vanilla

Combined flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt in large mixing bowl. Add eggs, coffee, buttermilk, or sour mild, oil, and vanilla. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into greased 13"x9" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

~sour milk= 1 tablespoon vinegar +milk=1 cup

Cake batter will be watery!!! I have never iced this cake. It is so rich. To decorate, when cool, I dust with powered sugar. It can be served with whipped topping or ice cream.

Enjoy ringing in the New Year. Then start the diet next week. Please as always share one of your favorite stories and the recipe that goes with it. Just attach it to Mr. Linky.

Thanks be to God!
