Friends

One wonderful thing about having a business like Southern Plenty is the creative people who walk through the door. Amy Schiffer Eason and her son Zach as well as her daughter Hannah have become special friends of our. Besides being a great artist and mom, Amy has worked at Southern Plenty and is currently on leave for a little while. Click on her highlighted name and you can see some of the great art she has created.

In the Kitchen

 One thing I know for sure.... I am so very fortunate and thankful to some great, wonderful women who have found their way to work with me at  Southern Plenty.  Rosana and Deanna graciously let me take their photos between making sandwiches, quiches, pastries and delivering delicious plates of food to our special customers. Not only do they both have their own special creative talents (Rosanna/ art, crafts and pure style and Deanna/ singing diva and domestic goddess of 2 young children) they each add their own special flair and love to each item they make in the Southern Plenty kitchen. I am truly blessed !
