Up And Running

My Etsy shop Molly E. House is up and running. My friend Susie is currently working on a logo and header for me and my photography friend Valerie has been gracious enough to help out with some picture taking. My shop is filled with mostly vintage housewares, patterns, clothing and luggage. Spread the word!

My New BFF...

...the crock-pot! I've used my crock-pot off and on but the last few weeks I've been working later and coming home at 7 or 7:30 and making dinner from start to finish just takes to long and I don't have the energy.
I've been throwing meat in the crock-pot before I head to work and when I get home all I have to do is fix a vegetable and dinner is done! I thought I'd take a couple posts and share some of my creations.

Blackberry Pork Loin

Sprinkle the pork loin with salt, pepper, dried thyme and rosemary and drizzle 1/2 cup of honey over the top.

Next dump a jar of blackberry jam over the top (I used some I made last year) and cook on low for around 8 hours or 4 on high.

It turned out really well and I sauteed some kale with shallot and white wine to go with it.

Hominy Grill

I found an article about the Hominy Grill in a magazine before we went down to Charleston and it was in the top places to eat breakfast in the south. We thankfully had enough time for a romantic breakfast before the wedding on Saturday. It's been in the New York Times, Gourmet magazine, Food & Wine and many more great publications. Thanks to some pouring rain we were seated right away...from what they say that hardly ever happens!

Shrimp sauteed w/ scallions, mushrooms & bacon over cheese grits.

Salmon potato cakes with poached eggs.
Mimosas & Coffee...yummy!

Their little slogan is "grits are good for you". I had to get a t-shirt....especially given where we live now. No one here knows what grits are here!!!

Whirl Wind Weekend

Last weekend we took a quick trip down to Ga & SC for friends Jonathan & Bonnie's wedding. It was a lot of fun and we managed to squeeze in a few hours with both or our families.

Here are some pictures from the weekend.

With the Nieces in Statesboro

Don't ask me why I've been craving this but we can't get it in Iowa.

My grandparents used to take us out to Krystal on our birthdays when we were young.

The rehearsal dinner...low country broil & oyster roast. Yummy!

Brandy & Houston's sweet Elynore

Nathan with mini Jeremiah
I've never seen a kid that looks so much like one of his parents.

Wedding time!
The chapel was beautiful.

The boys waiting.

Quick picture before we had to return the tux.
(not sure why my shirt was tucked in so tight)

At the reception with my besties!

It finally stopped raining on Sunday....we really miss trees!

Old church in South GA

Had to take a picture of our rental car. We called it our egg yolk.

Most of the brothers.

Wes looking like he stepped out of my dads year book.

I thought the boys were looking very dapper in their wool and tweed.

Daddy and the rabbit...

The trip was short but we're very glad we got to go back and visit. Hopefully next time for a bit longer.
