I have the SWEETEST sister....

My sister called me on Saturday and asked if I'd be home Sunday afternoon....she had something for me that needed to be refrigerated.  Well, for those of you that know my sister, she's an EXCELLENT cook and baker so I had a hunch it was something DELISH!!!

Well...she delivered it yesterday and it was OVER THE TOP...brought tears to my eyes!  You see...QT has been out of work since December and since I'm surrounded by BOYS...all of which eat me out of house and home, my grocery bill is one thing we haven't been able to reign back on. 

Here's what the SWEETEST sister in the whole wide world did....

That's right....she brought me the makings for Spaghetti and Meatballs, complete with Parmesan Cheese, French Bread, Salad and HOMEMADE Ranch (not pictured)....Homemade Gourmet Soups (3 of them - Enchilada, Chicken & Rice and Baked Potato) complete with the Chicken to go into the Enchilada Soup and Chicken & Rice....Biscuit mix...Cornbread Mix....
-----------------------
She also made my FAVORITE!!!!  Chicken Pot Pie (she also made this for me when I had my sweet little DD...I need to mention that she had her sweet little JHW only 10 days later so she was big, fat pregnant and she still thought of me and made me several casseroles to tide us over)...
----------------------------
and the icing on the cake....HOMEMADE granola bars!!! Who does that!?!?!  This is why I call her Martha Stewart all the time...lol
---------------------------
Now...since I'm off today because the Market is closed for President's Day....I plan on making a special thank you for her to let her know how much I appreciate her and LOVE HER DEARLY!!!!

What a fantastic sister you have. I know what its like to have your hubby off of work. Mine was off for 2 years then went back for 6 months and is now off again. My son eats a lot so I have to keep lots of food in this house. I hope everything works out for you and your sisters upcoming baby.

Awww...see this is the story I love to hear. My girls have been fighting for weeks but I know someday they will have this kind of relationship with each other. Give your sis a big ole hug for all of us too. Feeling a little sappy myself. :)
