When his mama came in to find him standing in bed for the first time, she ran to get a camera and snapped this picture. Of course, this is not what she saw originally...but the fact that she didn't come rescue him right away, (instead, took a picture!) brought on this expression!

I like using the crystallized ginger; I simply minced it.
Peppers are crisp and sweet; they're loaded with nutrients as well.
We enjoyed having the kids over after their return from two weeks at the beach. With temperatures in the 90s, we were disinclined to eat outside, so I made this Sweet and Sour Chicken. It was the perfect recipe for the sweet, ripe pineapple, so I cut it into chunks and put the whole thing into the pan.
Over rice, this was an entire meal. We enjoyed Denver Chocolate Pudding Cake for dessert...with ice cream. Try it!

Ready for fun in the sun! Hat and shades, swim suit, sunscreen...and Dad!
Mama says, "See? It's just water! You know what water is; it's just like your bath!"

What a lovely getaway! Just a few hours from home is this wonderful world of tall trees, pileated woodpeckers, ferns, mosses, and peace and quiet. Wild waters and old growth forest allow a person to forget, for a while, the 21st century!

It's fresh and cool, easy and attractive; and I always like to find those recipes that can be made ahead. Enjoy!

Grasses at the water's edge, beneath a big, clear sky.
This looks a lot like Queen Anne's Lace, but I am not certain it is; the tulip poplar beneath it is ubiquitous in these parts.

Do you know the difference between a Lotus and a Water Lily? The blossom of the water lily rests on the surface of the water; the lotus blossom is often several feet above the water. The lotus is from the East; water lily from the West. I am sure there are many other differences a botonist could tell you about, but at least now when you see them, you'll know which is which.
