Hello. I hope everyone enjoyed the 31st Times-Gazette Homemaker’s Show. For those of you that did not make it to the show, you missed a great show and entertainment.
Southern State Community College President Dr. Kevin Boys and longtime local entertainer and radio personality Herb Day put on a nice show. Not only did Dr. Boys fix his delicious bread pudding, but he played the mandolin and sang. He was awesome. Everyone enjoyed it.
Thank you so much Dr. Boys. Not only are you a great Southern State president, but you are a friend of the community, great cook, and you play a mean mandolin. too! We will see you next year.
Keep these recipes coming everyone.
