Junker's Soul Food

As I journey through this life, I am often reminded of the ties that bind us together: family, friends, good times, bad times, lots of laughter, a few tears, great junk, good stories, and of course, a hearty helping of soul food. In my family our lives have always centered around the kitchen table and the times spent together preparing the simple family meals we shared. It is with that in mind, that I start the 'Junker's Soul Food' post. I will share some of my recipes and foodie antics, and it is my hope you will share yours as well. So, pull up a chair, pour some tea, and welcome to the family!

Garden in a Box

The entry to your home is a perfect place to show off your creativity with junkables. Instead of planting in "typical" containers why not fashion a vignette mixing standard fare with the "not so" standard variety?
