  1. I am planning a family keepsakes post on my food blog this week. During my recent trip back to Illinois, my grandmother gave me a family heirloom. It is a large ceramic bowl that was owned by my great-great-great-aunt. Apparently, she ran a "Railroad Hotel" somewhere in the LaSalle/Mendota area in Illinois. She used the bowl everyday to cook meals for those that stayed at her hotel! Definitely one of my most cherished posessions!

      My oldest started confirmation this year and I was able to show him his grandmother's catechism book...I am getting so sappy in my old age!
      Thank you, Terry!
