The Tiger Roared LOUDLY

(Just so you'll know, Lorelai had a little fender bender on the way to class on Friday morning...she ran into the person in front of her...everybody is OK...little damage to the other car...some to hers but repairs can wait until the Christmas holidays when she's home...)

What a fabulous day Saturday was in Clemson.  The weather was and perfect for football. The Tigers knocked Auburn (the reigning national champions) right off their two year (17 game) winning streak.  It was BEAUTIFUL to watch. The score-Clemson 38...Auburn 24.  Looks like they're missing ol' Cam Newton. I'm trying to get used to pulling for him in his new role with the Carolina Panthers.  Old habits die hard...

Since it was a noon game, we cooked breakfast.  Eggs, bacon, bagels, muffins, crisp red apples, frappacino, and mimosas. We fed 11 hungry Clemson guys and gals and loved EVERY minute of it.

I'm working on a pot of French Onion soup. Lots of red wine in it and my new secret ingredient...truffle salt.  (Don't tell anybody...) This is just the kind of Sunday afternoon I love...overcast and cool.  I'll get a bunch done today and believe me, I need to.

Enjoy a couple of pictures from yesterday.


  1. Gorgeous family! Congrats on the "V". By the way, when I start cheering for Cam Newton, you'll know hell has frozen over. . . That's all I'm saying about that ;-). hehe XOXO

  2. Great pics!! And I watched Cam Newton in the Panther game yesterday! I was impressed!! Yes, he made some mistakes, but hey, it's only the 2nd professional game for him! I'm excited to see what is going to transpire!

  3. I was thrilled to see Clemson win!

  4. Great win! Your breakfast sounds delish! Good pics too.



Please makes me HAPPY!
