Hi, I’m Jessie {Hello, Jessie} And I’ve never eaten a fish. I don’t think.

Oh wait, that’s Dory.

Um, yeah. I’m Jessie, and I’ve definitely eaten a fish. And a whole lot of other stuff, because I’ll try anything once.

I started Vanderbilt Wife in July 2006, and I’m pretty sure it was going to be a personal weight-loss diary. Well, that lasted approximately three days, and it’s morphed into a place where I write about food, life, and God, among other things.

In October, I had a sweet baby girl (see above) so now I guess this is a mommy-blog since I don’t really have another genre. But mostly, it is an upbeat place where I like to chat with you, share my life, and talk about food. Lots of food. I’m also very cheap, and I like to talk about how cheap I am and good deals that I get.

I host Family Recipe Fridays, where I feature those treasured recipes that have been handed down over the years. I hope you’ll join me this week and submit a wonderful recipe.

That’s about it for now. I can’t wait to read all about your blog through Robin and Jo-Lynne’s Blog Hop! I hope you’ll surf around and leave me a comment so I can check out your blog as well.

{If you’re a regular reader, thanks for sticking with me. I love you guys! I’ll be back with Family Recipe Friday tonight at 8:30.}

  1. Hey there – if you're posting family recipe's, try your Dad's rice noodles.

    Take a whole chicken and boil it down to get proper chicken stock. You need about 2 cups of chicken stock.
    Soak rice noodles (1 pack) in warm water until they get soft.
    Stir fry about 1/2 lb. each of steak, shrimp, and pork strips until almost done. Set aside. Stir fry some pea pods,bok choi, cabbage, and bean sprouts in a wok. Throw in the rice noodles, the meat, and the chicken stock. Add soy sauce to taste, and add a fried rice seasoning packet.

    Bring to a boil and cook down the liquid until it thickens up, but not too long or the rice noodles will be chewy.

    Serve and enjoy.

    Love u…Dad
