Meals On Wheels

This is one of my favorite toys I got last year for Christmas. I love it, you would not believe how handy this lil wagon is. I use it all over the Ponderosa. Haul all kinds of things with it.
But my most favorite thing to do with it is
Turn it into Meals on Wheels for Mom and Pop :-) I like to cook for them. But I do not have a table for all of us to sit at in the mole hole so I do the cooking in the mole hole and then haul over to their house to eat it. Mom, says when she sees me getting my wagon and putting a towel down in the bottom of it. (nope not for sanitary purposes..but so that my wagon doesn't get scatched LOL) That they are about to get something delicious to eat. Yesterday was that day for meals on wheels on the ponderosa.
For this meal I am preparing some rice
Moms has set the table for us...look at the view will ya :-)
Mama is cooking the corn bread
Mama is buttering the corn bread trying to hide behind the spreader..LOL
It is Red Beans & Rice today folks, with 2 links of Hillshire Farm sausage and half a honey baked ham in there. It's so good (YES, I know I am the cook - but child have you seen a picture of me.. I am an excellent cook) I sometimes throw some chicken breast in there too but I left the chicken out this time and went more ham.
It was a delicious meal (yes me still tooting my own horn)and very enjoyable with the folks.
Yes and notice Brat here gets the best view for eating too :-)
Please NOTE there are NO flowers on this post Otin!!
Nope the ones in the background to count!

Do the Meals on Wheels travel to New Jersey??

Becky said...

Great idea!
I have a little cart I use all over the farm, but it's not as cute as your wagon.
Boo has one that he no longer uses. I'll have to comandeer it!

How far can you pull that little wagon full of food? 'Cause it's a long walk to Chicago, but I've got time to wait.

Dar. . . this looks like a lovely spread! I think this is awesome!

Joanie M said...

Oh yum!! I'm actually starting to cook more often again. John's ex was a gourmet cook. So I'm sometimes a little intimidated when I cook. John swears he loves everything I make.
