My mom says that Susie Brodie was a fine woman. She was related (a bit removed) to my grandfather on my mom's side.

1/2 stick margarine melted

Beat egg and add to melted margarine
Mix sugar and flour
Add a little peach juice to make batter more creamy
Add 1 tsp vanilla

Serve with dollop of ice cream

And here's a couple awesome photos from my Dad's side of the family.
Bess was my Meemaw (my Dad's mother). She loved roses, camellias, hydrangeas, rhinestone jewelry, Hummels, Wheel of Fortune (and me). She tatted lace. Isn't her dress great?

Arizona Watenbarger Denton was Meemaw's mom. She got up a sunrise and milked the cows, got the chicken eggs, and started breakfast. They lived on the side of a mountain in the sticks of TN. She was still slinging chicken necks the week before she died at 85. I love that someone wrote that these plants were "her treasure".

I love old family photos. Those are delightful!

(Hmm... I should not read yummy recipes in depth while hungry... :d)
