Then a name! I love names and they hold much value to me. Naming my children was an arduous process because 1. I love names so much 2. They set the tone for who they are known to be 3. They are forever. Cup-a Cup-a came to me as I was pondering my intention of swapping ideas, recipes and finds with friends. I was inspired by the recipe sharing that was done in the film Steel Magnolias of the cake recipe. Clairee, my favorite, asks Truvy for the recipe for her Cup-a Cup-a Cup-a. She told her she didn’t need a recipe it was just “a cup of flour, a cup of sugar and a cup of fruit cocktail with the syrup, stir and bake in a hot oven ‘til golden brown and bubbly. I serve it with ice cream to cut the sweetness.” Now I’m not a big fan of canned fruit cocktail but I am a fan of southern women and sharing what you know.
So here I am. Terrified and elated, brain busting with all of the “posts” that are backlogged in my mind from the past decade. What have I got to lose? It might even be fun!
