Sorry, no post this evening. Long day of travel to attend my nephew’s college graduation party. He worked hard to achieve this goal! Proud of him!!!
Being given permission to cook in another’s kitchen is like walking into a foreign land. There are items that are familiar, just like home, but nothing is in the place one expects. Other things are wholly unfamiliar even if the utility of an item is the same. That is how it felt last week when… Continue reading Maneuvering in a Foreign Land
Neither delayed flights on the way, nor cancelled flights on the way home, could dampen our joy in seeing our son and grandson. It was nice to walk into a nice big hug from our son. We also were warmly greeted by his girlfriend; she was very welcoming of us into her home. Now, the… Continue reading A Fine Visit

There was a recipe in my Cast Iron Cooking magazine I’ve been wanting to try for a little while. This past Saturday I made my shopping list to use after writing group. The list was short though. I had everything but the chicken, the scallions, and the pineapple. Now, it had been a minute since… Continue reading BBQ Chicken with Pineapple
As much as a gardener hopes the insects won’t invade each year, they still arrive like clockwork. We know insects are part of the food chain, a needed part of the food chain.

Taking a lazy day. Needed, and taking, a day to just decompress after the last couple of weeks. See you next week.
