I Cooked My Butt Off …

So, we had some family out … Our first-borns (daughter and son) and our new(-ish) son-in-law.  It was a great visit!  I thoroughly enjoy listening to their journeys, tasks, accomplishments and obstacles.  They are amazing young people.  (BTW – our youngest [the Twins] are too, it just makes my life a bit easier to divide …

Indian Summer–I’ll Take It!!!

We started this past week off with a huge batch of seafood alfredo – enjoyed by both of us as we worked through the weekend.  And then, this week – while pulling together a quick salad of spinach, carrots, peas, water chestnuts, romaine and a mayo-style dressing, I decided to shave off a few deep …
