Happy Anniversary

My Mama and Daddy would have been married 72 years today!  I can't even conceive of spending that much time with someone, but . . .

Good that they did get together though, or there wouldn't have been a little ol' me!

Daddy wanted to send me back because I didn't have any hair, but they finally decided to keep me!

Many years later, I flew over to Arizona from Honolulu to throw a surprise 50th anniversary party for them, with the help of a couple gal pals!

Since I'm writing about food now, this is one of my favorite recipes from Mama's collection.  Daddy was basically a meat and potatoes kind of guy, and Mama was a terrific cook.  I have a lot of her recipes still, but this Christmas treat is the best!  Reading it over, I might just have to make them now, even though it's killer summer weather!  If I do, I'll add pictures!

My mouth is watering, but I don't have any coconut in the cupboard right now.  Drat!

Happy Anniversary Mama and Daddy, wherever you are - probably on the heavenly golf course!
