Here it is...PINK SATURDAY
A lot of us have been coming over to see BEVERLY every single SATURDAY for quite awhile.
Be sure to stop over and see all of the beautiful PINKS being shown all over Blogland...
 THE color PINK can mean a lot of things besides being a beautiful, soft and dreamy color.
It can mean
for those people stricken with the dreaded disease...
Chicken salad, filled with celery, pecans and sweet grapes....
and I'm serving our southern sweet tea in
thanks to SOLO for supporting the research for THE CURE.
We spent most of the morning parching peanuts....
Don't they look good in my vintage pickling CROCK...
My favorite Aunt Lillian gave it to me many, MANY years ago..
I sure would rather have my Aunt Lil than this ole crock !!
how I love PEANUTS...
NOW, I will be making
that is so so good...
and one of my favorite candies.

I DID make some PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES this morning...

Good morning my sister friend, I am off to Penny's blog party. I wish you lived closer so you could come.

Love your reminder for breast cancer awareness. Also, I admire your energy to make home made peanut brittle. Mmmmmmm.

Love you bunches.

Those peanuts look sooooo good! I love your crock...I have a couple that were my grandmothers and I treasure them....
I make chicken salad with the same ingredients and your picture made me hungry, so guess what we will be having for lunch! Wish I had some of those peanut butter cookies to go with it!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Blondie's Journal said...

My heat swells when I see those big ole professional football players wearing pink shoes!

Now I have to make peanut butter cookies!!! Yours look so good and I have peanuts, just sitting in the pantry calling out to me....Marla, bake with's time to start putting on your winter weight....

Glad you gave a big shout out to all the PINK we are surrounded by this month. We've all been touched by either a friend or relative that has been stricken with breast cancer.

Hey hey BJ, Just got home from a morning of treasure hunting and didn't find much but a fabulous old cast iron water sprinkler. How are you this morning? I loved your post today and how you did food and the pink cups and the big fight all tied together. :) Now what do you mean by parched peanuts? I loved boiled peanuts but not sure what parched ones are. I am thrilled you joined the party. :) Happy PS

Thanks so much for visiting me at my new blog - it's taking some getting used to, but I'm getting there! Happy Pink Saturday, BJ.

dana said...

Hi BJ! I LOVE all things peanutty!!! So, do you raise your own peanuts or buy them and parch or boil them? Your Aunt Lillian's crock is wonderful.

I sure wish I had that chicken salad croissant and a peanut butter cookie right now!!! I'm starving! Oh, and I LOVE those bright pink SOLO cups, too! I'm gonna have to look for them in our store!

I hope you had a wonderful Pink Sat....looks like you had a great evening at the fball game!!

L, Dana

Yum, peanut butter cookies sound good! I also make peanut brittle but only at Christmastime. Love the pink cups! Happy Pinks, Ms. BJ!


Atelier de Charo said...

Delcious cookies!

Happpy Pink Saturday!

Theresa said...

Oh I can smell the peanuts parching now! My Daddy used to parch them and they were soooooooo good! I remember how he grew them, we would pull them up, shake the dirt off, he would wait until the right time to put them in the pan. I can see him in my memory shaking that pan to get them all turned. Thanks for that memory! Love to you and hope you have a wonderful weekend!

LV said...

I may have to move further West and drop by for some of your good cooking. I love roasted peanuts and buy a bag once a month. The lunch meal is just my thing. My sister and I go to a tea room most every Saturday. This is kinda what they serve. I would love a plate of yours right now.

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

Beeeeej! You would be sooooooooo proud of me. I made some fresh chocolate chip cookies today. Ham n' bean and corn muffins, too! Of course, I eat the dough as I am baking them. I know, I'm not suppose to, but I have been doing that my whole life and I'm still kickin' Your peanut butter cookies look yummy!

Holly said...

You are my inspiration!! 72?!! Really? wow! Whenever I buy paper towels, etc., I am always looking for PINK in them and I love the SOLO cups too.
Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Donnie said...

Everything looks so yummy. I love MW peanut brittle but my crowns sure don't. Thanks for sharing some lovely pinks this morning and my husband said pass the

I wouldn't mind eating some of what you are sharing this week, it all looks yummy!! Happy Pink Saturday, Char

CHERI said...

It's peanut time here in south GA. Lots of digging going on. We prefer ours boiled...yummy. That chicken salad looks awesome. That is one recipe I just can't seem to get the hang of. Thankfully a local eatery has fruited chicken salad that I love and eat it often. Love the pink cups!

Sarah said...

Oh, that chicken salad looks yummy! Beautiful pink post, BJ. ~ Sarah

Elaine said...

I lost my husband to brain caster and now have two griends with breast cancer.. We need a cure,,,,soon

JEANNE said...

Hi bj, I just thought I would let you know we talked about you at Penny's party today. It was all good. You are loved by many including me. Smile.

I will post about it on Monday.

Lindy said...

Looks like fun...HPS

Lisa said...

Am I the only one in the world who doesn't have the three ingredient peanut butter cookie recipe? You MUST share it! :)
PS I'm coming to YOUR house for lunch.:)

Brenda Kula said...

I never seem to visit here that there isn't fantastic food making my mouth water! Love peanut brittle. I haven't had a peanut butter cookie in ages. Love the crock!

Karen H. said...

Good Morning BJ. Long time to see huh? LOL. Well I have been back blogging for a little over a month now, but I only blog on Sunday's right now. Those Peanut Butter Cookies sure do look good and would go good with my cup of Coffee I am drinking right now. I love Peanuts as well. Used to when we could afford it, we would go to a few Restaurants that would serve Peanuts from a Bucket and you would just put the hulls on the floor. It was real neat. I love the old crock that you put yours in and I used to have a Great-Aunt Lillian, but she has gone to Heaven now. My hometown's Football team had Pink Towels in their game this past Friday night and the Coaches wore Pink-Shirts showing their support for The Cure. I thought that was so nice of them to do. Hope all has been good with you and yours. Take care and come visit me soon.

Love and hugs,

Karen H.

Maggie B said...

The cookies and chicken salad look delish, just the sort of food that I love to eat!
Parching peanuts was a new term to me too, the things you learn whilst blogging.
Hope you have a wonderful week.

Interesting story you got here. It would be great to read a bit more concerning that theme. The only thing it would also be great to see on this blog is a few photos of any gizmos.

Hi bj! Thanks for stopping by. That IS a little coffee pot that you saw on my stove. Indeed it is!

I love the goodies you bake and always wonder where my desire to bake and cook have gone, at least for the most part. I enjoy it when I do it...I just seldom do it.

I guess I would rather come here and just LOOK! :)

Kerrie said...

Neat post! Love shelled peanuts, too!

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear BJ. You make every Saturday - and every day - special.

Love your new light fixture. It looks fantastic.

I didn't know there are pink Solo cups. I need to add them to my shopping list. And, I love chicken salad. Did you save some for me? And, I'd like a cookie to go with it. Please!

Kathleen said...

You are always making something delicious! And yes, let us pray for a cure!
Do your pecans get jealous of those peanuts in that great looking crock? :)
