Happy Mothers day

Hope all the mothers out there had a nice day with their family and friends. I was blessed with 2 wonderful sons and  a sweet heart future daughter in law. Jason and Rob were both here to enjoy the day with me but Amoy had to work. But there will be others I am sure. I went to see my mom yesterday for Mothers day and took her flowers and some snacks to the nursing home. She is doing OK. We hosted a cookout today for Rodgers family for Mothers day. They all enjoyed the food. We had grilled chicken and I ended up frying about 8 lbs of pork tenderloin, potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans. All home made of course. All this done in the new summer kitchen which made it nice to not have to clean house afterwards.
So till next time, Happy Mothers day to all the moms, and ladies that have been the mom figure to some thing or some one, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

Catching up today on several of your posts-
You are so on the ball to log your farm so well.

I'm glad that you had a summer kitchen to use on Sunday! Tell me how you fry tenderloin; I need to know!

The crops are looking good, and oh, those volunteer potatoes!

Hi Mrs Mike, thanks, i try to keep up with things.
I usually try to get tenderloin that has been run thru the tenderizer, I think it jus frys up better. I have it sliced about 1/2 inch and then run thru the tenderizer, then in an iron skillet put about an inch of lard, season tenderloin to your liking, i like salt an a lil pepper, add to hot grease and fry till it browns a good bit. remove and serve. Also you can use the grease to make country milk gravy and scrape the bits off the bottom of the skillet. Put that over hot biscuits. dang it will make ya take back stuff ya didnt steal. lol
