Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. I hope that your grill is fired up and ice cream ready to churn (mine is…two kinds.  I have a problem).  It’s Sunday, and I’ve got no where to go and no reason to get out of my jammies and  it’s such a […]

Grilled Eggplant Veggie Burgers with Smoky Hazelnut Pesto

Grilled Eggplant Veggie Burgers with Smoky Hazelnut Pesto

Memorial Day. Summer. Let’s grill. I always resist grilling, which is dumb because it’s so easy and, as someone recently pointed out to me, means no dirty dishes to clean (or at least a few pots and pans less).  I liked the sound of that, […]

Ginger Ice Cream

Ginger Ice Cream

Sorry guys, I blinked and all of a sudden Memorial Day was this week and I’m still eating things like short ribs and grits and heavy soups and stews.  So, not the most summer of foods. However, I got myself a little garden thanks to […]

Hello, Sunday. Cool pic, huh? Last night I worked a fundraiser for work and it was in the Delta hanger in the Detroit airport!  Anyway, a very cool space. This week I used the decent weather to get my bike legs flexed as zipped around […]

Dutch Mustard Soup, Mosterdsoep

Apple Bacon Dutch Pancake, or Pannenkoeken

Hello, Sunday. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there (child moms, fur moms, plant moms all count), and happy day to all of you that aren’t.  You are no less special and important! This weekend I finally got my act together, and got […]

See the World: A Day in Delft

See the World: A Day in Delft

I hope you enjoyed our little walk through the tulips.  I’m still having a hard time deciding which picture to enlarge and frame (because, how could I not?).  What do you think? Anyway, continuing with our travel tale, we left our bikes in Edam and […]

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

After I don’t know how many years of getting bypassed on the trip wish list, The Tulip Trip actually happened! For years, Lettuce, Tomato and I talked about repeating our Oktoberfest2010 biking Bavaria through the tulip fields of Holland, but boyfriends and jobs, and hiking […]

Hello, Sunday. The sun is shining, it’s a beautiful day.  I’ve rested back to my normal self (which did involve locking Crawley out of the bedroom more than one morning when the 3 AM poking started, no doubt some sort of revenge for me leaving […]
