Sunday Dinner: Happy Birthday Ethan



Maybe his mother is right and he does need a haircut.

Born on the first of July. On Tuesday my nephew will turn twelve. He is the youngest son of my mother’s youngest son. All his life he has heard, “You look just like your Daddy.” And he does. Auburn curls, brown eyes, freckles, and extremely skinny. He isn’t short like his father. He is tall like his mother’s family. He caught up to his older sister quickly. He’s a funny kid. When he was about two, he learned he could make people laugh. He continues to be hilarious.


At Ethan’ request, we’ll celebrate with BBQ chicken and orange cupcakes with orange icing (also his uncle’s favorite). I’ll also be serving stewed potatoes, green beans, macaroni and cheese, cornbread, and fried okra.
