 If you are a follower of Our Southern Style, you will notice a theme in a lot of my posts. I love to cook and bake for my family and friends. Along with my love of cooking, I always try to prepare as many of my dishes from scratch. You know? Like the Little Red Hen who grew the wheat, harvested the wheat, milled the wheat, all to make her loaf of bread. Okay, I might not go that far (although put me on a farm and I'd probably try) but you get my point. I love cooking with the purest of ingredients. I have recently added the Vitamix 5200 to my cooking and baking arsenal and it quickly found a permanent home on my kitchen counter top. Not only does this machine lend itself to creating one of a kind dishes, but it also allows me to even make some of my own purest of foods, condiments, smoothies, and more!

 From the moment the new Tom and Jerry Show Season 1 Part 2: Funny Side Up DVD arrived at our home the kids have been enjoying all of the fun found in these episodes, which are new to them, but familiar to me. I'm old enough to appreciate all of the original Tom and Jerry shenanigans and these all-new episodes bring new adventures for my kids to enjoy. The picture quality is stunning and the colors are much brighter and more vibrant than I remember from my childhood days. This DVD is especially great for my family because with two "shorts" in each "episode", I'm able to put on a quick "movie" while I make lunch or jump in a quick shower, without having my kids in front of the TV for hours on end. And with 13 episodes (26 shorts) they will have plenty of lively Tom and Jerry entertainment!
