An extended break
I’m sure you’ve noticed my absence. I’ve not really been in a blogging mood for over a month.
I have decided to make my absence more permanent. I am not saying that I won’t be back, but I am going to take a break from the blog for the summer.
I hope you’ll still be here when I return.
I’ll understand if you are not.
Food from my garden, this week in fail
With oodles and oodles of squash and zucchini from my garden, we’ve tried a few “new to us” recipes lately.
Some were good, some were not.
This one, from Paula Deen, was not a winner.
The flavors did not work well together, no one wanted a second helping, and we tossed the remainder.
I made 1 alteration, I added a few slices of zucchini, I can’t see how my small addition could change the flavor much.
Maybe I’m wrong though.
What cooking fails have you had lately?
Pictures from our drive.
We saw some beautiful bridges on our drive.
We saw some interesting sites like a vehicle transporting saddles on it’s roof.
We saw beautiful trees and rolling hills.
Traveling and Visiting
Happy 4th of July to all my fellow Americans!
On our driving trip to Alabama, we drove from Texas to Little Rock, Arkansas on day 1.
On our drive we stopped at a rest stop just inside of Arkansas and were surprised to see a girl my daughter went to elementary school with. Crazy.
We ate at Cracker Barrel (a must for road trips in our opinion).
I contacted Greg and Katherine of Rufus’ food and spirits guide to see how close to Little Rock they were.
Very close. We were invited for desserts. I tried unusual and tasty pizzas.
We viewed their lovely garden.
We petted their dogs.
It was a lot of fun and I can not thank Greg and Katherine enough for welcoming us into their beautiful home!
How to totally fail at returning from blogging vacation
It’s already July!?!?!?!? Oops!
Yeah, it’s been over a week since we returned from Alabama. I haven’t blogged, tried any new recipes, taken any food or garden related pictures, or really been home much since we returned.
A blog at rest, tends to stay at rest.
So, in an effort to jump start my tardy return……..
How to use garden flowers and mint to make a pretty floral arrangement.
1. Snip pretty garden flowers of various colors.
2. Cut 3-6 mint sprigs to use in your arrangement.
3. Place in vase.
4. Fill vase with water.
How have you been spending your time so far this summer?
Garden Gab, Expansion Edition
My sweet husband is expanding my garden area. Here are some pictures of the expansion progress.
I hope you have had a super week.
I’ll be back on Monday.
Last year’s vacation
Last summer we went to the Texas coast. We had a wonderful time. I will have a similar group of posts for this summer’s vacation I am sure, but until I return…. Let’s revisit last year’s posts.
I’ve seen miles and miles of Texas
Happy Father’s Day!
To all the Dads, Granddads, and Papas out there……
Happy Father’s Day!
Dads are such an important part of a child’s life. Having active, positive male role models is important for both boys and girls.
I’m happy and blessed to have a wonderful husband who is an excellent role model for our son and an all around awesomesauce guy.
Big hugs to all the Dads out there. Keep up the excellent work.
I won’t have any new posts during this week. I miss-managed my time and failed to line up any guest posters, so I will post links to last summer’s guest posts and last year’s vacation wrap up posts.
Have a wonderful week!
Father’s day last year I posted a sweet roll recipe.
