We have another grandkiddo to graduate this year – high school – which puts 4 of our grandkiddos in college – in the fall of 2014 we will have in college a senior, a junior, a sophomore, and a freshman. Stepping stones! And to celebrate we always gather together and partake of some bodacious viddles. This year we are mixing things up like I previously said and brunch will abound. Another recipe we will have will be one we will be drinking – Applewood Julep! If you have ever been to the mountains of Tennessee, you may have enjoyed this at the Apple Barn Restaurant. This is so good and refreshing. And just right for breakfast or brunch. Make some this weekend and sit out on the veranda (or your back porch or stoop) and enjoy the birds!
