Little traditions & a recipe

Every Sunday night as far back as I can remember... we make cookies! I think this might have started the very 1st Sunday we were married! I didn't know how to cook... in fact, our 1st day home after the honeymoon... Brad got up and asked if I would just fry him up an egg or 2 and he would jump in the shower. Well... YIKES! HOW ON EARTH DO YOU FRY AN EGG??!!! So, not to make a long distant phone call, I quickly called his sister and asked her. She laughed and laughed... I thought I could never get her to quit laughing before Brad was out of the shower and found out I didn't know how to FRY AN EGG!!!!! She finally told me and I quickly fried up my new hubby a couple of egg and made him some toast. The young women thought this was so funny that they put that in my camp name one year.... Grneggznhair.... standing for GREEN (my favorite color at the time) eggz (for well, the story I just told you) 'n hair (coz my freaking BIG hair. Anyway, I might not have known how to COOK, but boy could I bake! LOL.... Anyway, that is a tradition of ours... cookies every Sunday night. BUT, there ARE those Sunday's that I just crave something besides cookies. And, since I AM the once baking... I GET TO CHOOSE. AND, tonight was one of those nights.... so, they got peach cobbler. This is a YUMMMY EASY recipe that I got from my mom years and years ago and I thought I would share it with you. So, here it is....

Peach Cobbler

melt one stick of butter in your casserole dish

1 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 c. milk
1 t. vanilla
2 t. baking powder
dash of salt
Mix this together in a bowl and pour it over the butter. Do not stir.

Then open up a lg. can of sliced peaches and with a fork set the peaches around on the batter. Then pour the peach juice around over the top. (again, do not mix)

Bake at °350 for about 30 min (until golden brown)


Do you have any fun family traditions to share??!!!

Cute story!

By the way...I have natural curly hair and it looks just like yours in your header picture-Mine is brown though and it has a mind of it's own! :)
Enjoy that yummy looking cobbler!

I just got some peaches. Oh my this looks good. We use to have scrambled egg sandwiches growing up on Sunday evenings watching the Wild Kingdom.

We have popcorn most Sunday nights. But I was craving chocolate all evening. So I had a cup of hot cocoa.

linda said...

Boy does that cobbler look delish...I just may have to make it soon!

What a fun tradition. Our Sunday tradition has ALWAYS been to have dinner together. With all of the kids activities things really used to get busy during the week...but come rain or shine...I made sure we always had Sunday dinner together. Good times and good memories.

Back to School fashion show
Thankful tree on Thanksgiving
Looking at Black Friday ads on TDay evening
Black Friday shopping
Chinese food when bad things happen

that is funny about the Fried Eggs. When Spencer and I were first married he asked me to make him 2 eggs OVER EASY! and he happened to mention that he is VERY picky about them. Then he was OFF to the shower!!!

i Freaked.
I'm a southern girl and i am SUPPOSED to know how to took anything & everything!!!!

but....over easy???? what tha?? so,

I had to run downstairs to the computer, look up OVER EASY EGGS online really quick, then run back upstairs to the kitchen to try it out!

When he took his first bite....he SMILED so big & said that "THESE ARE THE BEST OVER-EASY EGGS I HAVE EVER HAD."

You should give out your cookie recipe! Everyone loves those when I make them!

We always kneel for the evening prayer on dinner

Mechelle said...

I made this exact recipe last night. Except I think I forgot to put the salt in now that I think about it. And I stir mine. Interesting that you don't.

So did he like the eggs you cooked him up? Did he know that you didn't know how to cook? I am sure you have cooked up a few thousand eggs since that morning. M

Hey Shaila,
Papa taught me to make a cherry pie, while he was on the couch and he told me what to get in the kitchen and how to make the cobbler. your Peach cobbler looks delicious- it's one of my favorites! We make cookies or brownies on Sundays too, maybe not Every one though. Love, Kelley

Letti said...

That looks so yummy. I am going to have to try that this Sunday. I love that tradition except that I don't like to eats sweets taht much but my dh sure does. Maybe thats something I can start with my two girls.

wilma said...

This was also one of MaMa's receipes and we always wanted a scoop of vanilla ice cream while it was hot. It's not all that good the next day but we rarely had any left over. LOL

nikkicrumpet said...

OK...the egg story is pretty dang funny. I bet your sis-in-law still needles you about that...I know I would lol.

Cute. We bake cookies every Sunday too. We just started this year though. I love that you've been doing it for so long.

I thought you could cook a turkey raw, straight out of the freezer into the oven. A very NOT happy Thanksgiving. dinner.

I've been thinking about you lately. Hope you're doing okay.

This is too funny. This is MY mom's old favorite peach cobbler recipe. I made it twice last week. I had a bunch of peaches I need to use. It's soooo yummy with melted ice cream on top. :-)

Jodi said...

Mmmmm...I wish I could taste it through the computer screen!

My first apple pie I didn't know you were supposed to peel the apples and so I baked the peel right in! Hubby was so nice and didnt even say a word! lol

Hey I tagged you on my blog!

Bren's Life said...

I am the same way. I love to bake, but hate to cook!
That looks so good! An I love your tradition. What an awesome one. But I'd eat all the cookies...

lance n sarah said...

Oh my gosh I LOOOOOVVVVE peach cobbler. I'm gonna make this tonight. Gotta go buy some ice cream too. mmm mmm mmm I added this recipe and stole your pic to our new blog. Have you checked it out yet?

Ms. Tee said...

The cobbler recipe sounds so good - there's just nothing like warm cobbler. :) I am so sorry to read about your father. I will keep him my prayers.

That was funny! I actually went to the store (many moons ago), got a chicken (alreay cooked) and some sides, threw them all in my dishes and tried to pass it all off as my own. Thank goodness it was for someone who had even less taste than I did!

I honestly didn't know the first thing about cooking back then. Those were my skinny days!

I can't wait to try your cobbler recipe - sounds yummy. I found it through Merrianne's blog. When I saw it, I just had to stop by to get the recipe. Thanks for sharing :)
