Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Wisdom in Wood

I have a good friend (Hi Denise!) who introduced me to this little saying. And you know what? She's right. Sometimes you just can't do anything about a situation. You can't change it. You can't wish it away. It's just what it is. Sometimes it stinks. Sometimes it doesn't. I've learned to roll with the punches....accept things for what they are, try not to sweat the small stuff and just go with the flow. I keep this sign in my kitchen to remind me not to worry about things that have the potential to get me down. Keep moving forward! Put one foot in front of the other and stay on the path. The reward is worth the wait.


  1. I also have a friend who says this and I've learned to say it too. Saying it out loud feels. . .relieving.
    P.S. Does you-know-who sell said sign??

  2. Denise is the first person I ever heard say it and now we say it ALL the time. It just....FITS!

    I got my sign at TJMaxx but I think Jon could give them a run for their money...don't you think?
