Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Hey we are both early birds and used the same template for this weeks TT.
I make liver+onions now for my dad, me and mum hate it!
I love the dumplings, chicken or beef stew for me.
Hungry now.

PJ said...

Hi there, I love chicken and dumplings. I haven't had pancakes for years, but I may have to try some tomorrow morning...

Robin said...

I used to have to leave the house when my mom cooked liver! Still do in fact. Dumplings on the other hand...

Have a happy TT.

Ooh, sounds like you're a Southerner! I've actually never had things like chicken and dumplings; I'd like to fix that one day.

Happy TT!

Just from reading that, and not knowing a thing about you, I'd have to say you're a Southern girl! :-)

Christine~Are We There Yet! said...

My husband loves fried Okra. Sorry it's not my food of choice. The chicken and dumplings sound wonderful. Just like Mom used to make.
Happy Thursday!

Carrie! :o) said...

Cute list! Believe it or not, your list brought back my childhood memories. LC pizza! That's the only pizza we ate growing up, LOL!

Kelly said...

ok.. can't believe you left off Salisbury steak, and Godfathers pizza. So many things off this list would be on mine plus I make alot of them for my 3... thanks for sharing.

Southern Girl said...

Oh gosh, you've made me so hungry now! Except, not for the liver...not one little bit for that. ;)

Chicken dumplings is a favorite of mine too, and wow, I hadn't thought about Quincy's in YEARS. Ooo, and Western Sizzler, did you have one of those?

Fun TT! Mine's up, too.

whenn said...

Hmmmm, Little Ceasar Pizza. Yummie.

Just a question: I have no idea what a fried okra is??

Gela said...

Love your T13! There is not a favorite childhood memory for me that does not involve some kind of food - and some of them are on your list, too!

What kind of dumplings? The doughy bread kind or the noodle kind? I love them both!

Thanks for stopping by - have a great T13!

Tink said...

Yummy, I'm hungry now! Wonderful list, amazing how food triggers memories...
Thanks for visiting my cat quotes TT!

Babystepper said...

My husband and I used to eat Little Caeser's Pizza at least once a week in college. Hey, it was $5 for a large which lasted three meals. You can't beat that on scholarship budgets!

HighlandAmy said...

My husband makes the BEST CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS EVER! I love them. I also love sweet tea. Like REALLY sweet tea. In fact, it's more like I'd like some tea in my sweet ;)

Happy TT :D

Nancy J. Bond said...

What a great list...I remember a few of these from my childhood, too. I'll add my Mom's scalloped potatoes...rich, creamy and a recipe I've been unable to duplicate. :) Thanks for the stroll down your Memory Lane. Happy TT!

Sparky Duck said...

I love #1, especially the Cracker Barrell recipe. And Okra is yummy, much better then liver, yick

Amanda said...

great list! I love fish sticks. Pancakes are a kid favorite here along with waffles.

Tendrils said...

i love fried okra! :)

My grandma used to make liver for spper,but I would only be there in the afternoon so I'd just smell it! It smelled SO GOOD! (Later in life, I tried it..ICK!)

Great Grandma made the BEST dumplings! I still use her recipe! YUMMY!

Mommy the Maid said...

Chicken and Dumplings are a childhood favorite of mine too!

Great TT! Mine is up and all about Spring time.

annie said...

That's awesome! Reminds me of my birthday dinner... hot dogs (no bun) macaroni & cheese (Kraft) and spinach! Yummm!!!

annie said...

And I forgot to say that Chick-fil-A reminds me of my teen years working at the one on South Cobb Dr.... hehe. I thought you'd laugh!

I love waffle fries with honey to this day! And a large sweet tea!

Leigh said...

That's Fried Okry in my neighborhood!

Starla said...

Mmmmm... Little Ceasars. I still love their Crazy Bread!

Such a childhood favorite.

L^2 said...

Great list! Pancakes definitely remind me of my childhood too. my mom used to make them for us early on Sunday mornings. But we loved them most when she made them for supper! :-)
Happy TT and thanks for visiting my list.

Mercy's Maid said...

I'm with you on the chicken and dumplins. Best comfort food ever!

Heather Rae Scott said...

Your list made me so hungry--LOL.

Happy TT

Julia said...

Your list are YUMMY! I love anything pizza and spagetti when I was younger...and still love them today :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Happy TTs and I hope you have a wonderful day!

April Decheine said...

Liver and onions, I use to dump my plate in the dogs bowl when my dad was not looking. Sweet tea I only just tried the last few years when I traveled south. The first time I was asked sweet or un sweet I was like, HUH?? (Or whatever they said :-)My boss had a good chuckle! #2 for me here

Rose said...

I recall many of those. I loved my Mother's Chicken and Dumplins. I'll never make them like she did.

Janene said...

That's so funny ~ my dad liked liver and onions and we wouldn't eat it. :) I love fish sticks, mac and cheese and peas!

Great list ~ I'm off to make something for dinner! I'm really hungry now.

Happy Thursday!

Julie said...

I like your TT for this week! Yet another idea I haven't thought of for a topic! :) Mine is up to if you wanna swing by!

Ctina said...

I'm so glad you remember Quincys! My family and I lived in a hotel before we bought our house in Florida (yea for government moves; they pay for everything!), and there was a Quincy's right next door. We went there all the time! Thanks for the comments! Ciao

Michelle said...

Seriously, I think my stomach just growled in response to this TT! I've never had fried Okra and don't know what Quincy's is but I love a lot of those other things.

Thanks for visiting my TT!

Bee said...

My mom used to make liver too, but we had to at least have a few bites - ICK!

Jacqueline said...

I hope I did the Thursday Thirteen correctly!

Amy H said...

What a fun 13. For me it's liked canned fruit and meatloaf. Weird.

Gummy worms remind me of my childhood. Gummy worms and Alf...but Alf isn't a food. -smile-
