Kev’s Daily Take On 05/14/2023

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!  For all of you Moms, Stepmoms, Grandmoms, Great Grandmoms, Fur-baby moms, and those who fulfill the mom role. We give you a tip of the hat, a big hug, and all of our love.  Able to leap a teenage attitude in a single bound, faster than a glass of milk falling off the table and able to keep everything and everyone together, moms are superheroes, medics, cooks, boo-boo kissing, discipline giving, all out heart loving, women.   We also give our mothers who have gone on before us a warm memory that brings on a smile.  May all of you have the most wonderful day and to my mom, we miss you every day.

Celebrate You with…

NATIONAL DECENCY DAY reminds us that since we are all in this together, we might as well treat each other with kindness, respect, and compassion.  It is not always easy, but some things are worth the effort.

On Today’s Menu…

Serious Eats

NATIONAL BUTTERMILK BISCUIT DAY has us reaching for the sausage gravy.  Biscuits for breakfast are a natural with butter, jelly, or honey.  Mom used to plop the raw biscuits into a frying pan of oil, take them out and shake them up in a brown bag of powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar for some homemade doughnuts.  You can also use this tasty bread for pizza crusts, as a sandwich or served with just about any meal.
