This week between Christmas and New Year’s has been much too short for me. The good news is that I was in the best part of my second treatment cycle over the Christmas weekend. I was able to enjoy the holiday surrounded with lots of love from my husband, daughters, parents, siblings/in-laws, nieces and nephew. There’s… Read More
I never think of breakfast as a meal that’s limited to the early hours of the day. In fact, some of my favorite breakfasts were served for dinner.
I so wish this computer hasn’t been this temperamental all year. Several times I attempted to put up a post last week, and all of those times ended in computer hangups. I think we know what will be on my list for Santa in a few months. There’s so much I wanted to share with… Read More
Wasn’t it just last week that I put away the last of the Christmas decorations and gifts? And if that’s a little bit of an exaggeration, it was probably the week before that. In fact, scratch that. I’m not exaggerating at all because just last weekend Joe finally put away his train set that goes… Read More
How about we start today with a joke? Q: How many surrealists does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: Fish I hope I haven’t offended any surrealists out there. I actually love you people and your melting, dreamy, whimsical art. Really. Annie told me this joke many, many years ago and I… Read More
Some people love having Thanksgiving leftovers and would eat them forever. In fact, I’ve known people who consider leftovers to be their favorite part of Thanksgiving. Our family, we’re not so big on any leftovers, as I’ve learned over the years when the refrigerator overflows with little mystery tubs that contain dollops of food that become… Read More
It was a very busy weekend and Joe and I caught up on our to-do lists after a long week. With Louisa well on the way to recovery, we decided to sneak out on Saturday morning to run a few errands and squeeze in a breakfast at a restaurant that made one of the local… Read More
Unlike the pasta primavera earlier in the week, this breakfast turned dinner received rave reviews from the crowd. There was no “I’m not really hungry” heard at the table that night. There were no ignored leftovers in the refrigerator. Nope. Instead there was remorse that more Baked-Egg and Canadian Bacon Sandwiches couldn’t be found for second helpings.… Read More
You probably don’t think of me as a particularly vindictive person. But when I sat down to write this post yesterday, I caught a virus. Not the kind that will put me in bed with a nice warm cup of chicken soup and the tv remote. No, the far worse kind that attacks your computer,… Read More
It’s tough enough getting out of bed on these cold, dark mornings. I was not made for this season of short days and cold. I’m a summer baby and I need summertime light and warmth! So when I need to make a breakfast dish for either overnight guests or to bring to a morning brunch potluck,… Read More
It happened again this weekend. And, as often happens, I blame Joe for it.
