Southern Spring Show: Carolina Calling

Carolina Calling was the theme for this years 55th annual Southern Spring Show held in Charlotte. I always enjoy the Spring Show because here in the South it is still chilly outside when it is underway. But inside it is nice and warm and you can stroll gardens galore and really soak up what it means to have Carolina Calling, your name.

Hope you enjoyed the photographic journey thru the Southern Spring Show. If you are in the Charlotte area around the last weekend in Feb stop by and check out the show for yourself. I promise after you do, you will love the Spring Show as much as I do.

Honey-cheese rolls

Recently a Publix store opened in my area. I went to check it out and see what all the "talk" was about. Well let me say the chatter was spot on and Publix over achieved in my book. During opening month they had lots of free samples and cooking demo's. The day I was in the store I tried lots of yummy products but, these Honey-Cheese Rolls stood out in my mind.

I popped a nice hot one in my mouth before I really knew what I was eating. As I glanced at the ingredients I was shocked but also kinda excited to see Mozzarella cheese and honey, what a strange combo, but also what a tasty treat.

Hope you enjoy these tasty rolls.
