Home Cooked Meals...

March 24, 2020

Here is the million dollar question.
Can you *really* find home cooked meals in a resturant? Well, stick around because I have an aswer for you. 

My daughter recently had a baby. If you have children, you know how hard it is to prepare a good balanced meal with a newborn around. So, as we were preparing to pick them up from the hopsital, "what's for dinner" was on my mind. I looked up, and it was like God had answered my prayers. 

My eyes instantly stuck to the words *soul food* out of everything on the sign. 

I thought to myself, yeah- its probably one of those places where the food is premade and they just heat it up real quick. But at this point, I had to make a decision, and quick. I was not in the mood to cook. I was too excited to see the baby! 
So, I took a leap of faith and decided to order our meals from Ms. Tonya's Soul Food. 
Walking in, I was instantly greeted by the cashier and owner. It was nice to feel welcomed, especially when I was about to spend my money. Excellent customer service is rare these days. It is always refreshing to hear someone cheerfully greet you when you walk into their establishment. Even the cook came out and spoke. Top notch staff! 

Needless to say, I had a pretty large order, mostly consisting of turkey legs and sides and grilled pork chops and sides. 
I had the grilled pork chops with macaroni and cheese and collard greens. The meal came with cornbread and rice as well (very hefty plate might I add which allowed me to get two servings). Everything looked so good I did not know where to start. Being a starchaholic (Yes, I admit it. I am addicted to starchy foods), I went straight for the mac n cheese. At first bite my response was "I am never cooking again." The mac n cheese was delcicious. My belly did the happy dance. 

Next up, the greens and porkchops. All I can say is mmm mm good. These people most defenitely cook becuse they have a love for it, not just becuase they want to make a living. The meat was tender and seasoned perfectly. The greens took me back to my childhood. Yes, this is my final decision. I am never cooking again!  

Of course you know I cannot leave out the sweets. They offer these cute little sweet potatoe pies, a perfect serving size for the well disciplined soul. However, for me, yes- you guessed it. I went back for more. The pie was warm, sweet, and hit the spot.

I highly recommend Ms. Tonya's Soul Food and suggest you get on down there as soon as humanly possible and grab you a plate, or two! I also love that they are on facebook and list daily specials so it makes it easy for you to plan ahead.

They have something for every mood...

The only 3 Letters you will use in 2020!!!!

January 14, 2020

Hi Friends, welcome back to my blog! I wanted to take a few minutes to share some amazing news with you about a gold mine product I have been using for a couple of years now.

Do you know someone who is in pain, stressed, or someone who needs to just relax a little bit more? Believe me, I was one of those people who needed to learn the benefit of *relaxing* and this product allowed me to do just that. Relaxing for me was sleeping and that meant I missed out on a lot. The good news is there is ...

State of the Union 2019

February 6, 2019
Lets begin by defining what the state of the union means. The state of the union, as defined by the dictionary is an annual message delivered to congress by the president of the United States, in which he describes the conditions of the country, outlines its nations's most serious problems, and proposes his annual program and legislation. 

Now that we all understand what the purpose of the speech is, lets get right to it. I will be the first to say that I was no fan of Trump. However, I am a b...

Can you avoid dating drama during the Holidays?

December 15, 2018
Christmas time is here again. Some people may be spending it with family, friends, co-workers or alone. No matter how you choose to spend this holiday, make sure it will be spent surrounded by "drama free" people! After all there is no better GIFT than "peace". 

Which brings me to my topic of discussion for today. Dating during this time of year can be extremely difficult. Especially if you find yourself in a relationship with someone that you love or deeply care about, but your relationship w...

Employee vs Employer - What say you?

August 26, 2018

*Confession is good for the soul.

I woke up with a burning sensation in my heart. The voice was so clear. And my actions must be 10xs greater.

How it all started:
My plan was 2 kids by age 25 and my own business by age 40. I did not factor in legacy building and how to teach my kids to be bosses instead of workers. I figured they would just get it naturally. 🤔

Where did I go wrong:
I have failed my children. Yes, we are okay- but we are supposed to be GREAT. No one told me to plan for my ch...

Belly Fat Blues

August 20, 2018

Did you know a fat belly is a physical sign that something is going wrong inside your body?
Chronic stress is a primary cause of belly fat gain. Stress can also lead to many health issues.

I'll share two products that have worked wonders for me. The first is a two-day herbal cleanse.   

When you begin to notice stubborn fat that won't go away, it may be time for a gentle cleanse. This cleanse is focused on removing the intestinal sludge that can make you feel sluggish, give you a pooch in your ...

Deportation of Military Veteran Spouse

August 3, 2018

If you ask a person about their citizenship and they say, "I had been a student in Memphis Tennessee for a short time" where in that statement did they say, "I am an American citizen?" If border officials "apparently thought the person was falsely claiming to be an American citizen," is that misinterpretation of intent on the person or the border officials? 

You have made a life in the United States. Your spouse is a part of the United Stated Military and they have fought for our freedoms ever...

The Black Agenda

June 21, 2018
Yes, Black Lives Matter. Yes, Blacks are not treated equally. Yes, Black children are separated from their families daily. And Yes, it appears that nobody cares.

Would you like to know why the so called black power movement continues to throw Black issues at the forefront of every debate that hits the news? In my opinion, it's because they get a hard on from drama. Any time a person of any race can not see past their own pain long enough to feel the pain of someone else, that person is insp...

Bullies with Badges

June 21, 2018
Summer is supposed to be a happy time. But, I can't help but be in my feelings about the state of America and its lack of progress since the 60's. Why is it that Malcom X said the exact same thing about police that is still happening today?
What are we doing wrong as a nation that ALL human life is NOT valued the same?
We are going into 2019 and the same issues that our ancestors had to deal with is still alive!?
