You've gotta check this out . . .

Wednesday, July 25, 2012



Is that a beautiful dish or what??! Summer bounty from tomatoes grown right outside my window with chick peas, fresh basil, avocado and shrimp. With a little splash of Zesty Italian dressing and "voile" . . . sheer perfection. Oh and here's a little something special . . . I toasted a piece of Ezekiel bread and cut it up for "crunch" in my salad . . . was a stroke of genius don't you think . . . well if you like that kind of thing.

Ok, so that was fun . . . now, by popular request I want to show you my new favorite pottery coffee/tea mug . . .



I had to retire my old favorite because it got cracked and wouldn't hold liquids anymore. There was a local farmer's market in a nearby town that I checked out Saturday and this was my wonderful find. A favorite mug is like an intimate friend I love to spend time with . . . it had to be special. I love everything about it . . . emoticon

The dish next to it is a "baked apple" dish . . . just in time for apple season. I can't wait to try it out. I love baked apples. Who needs sugar with sweet juicy apples with cinnamon? Hummm . . think I need to try one right now . . .

Ok, now I have to show you my beautiful roses . . so they will be forever archived . . .



My DH is so sweet . . . I gave him some "eye candy" the other day (I won't go into that part, I'll let you use your imagination, more fun anyway) and this was my reward. Guess I should do that more often, huh? I do something unexpected every once and a while . . just for fun. Hey . . . after nearly 42 years of marriage, he's still wants to look . . . . I'm a lucky (blessed) girl . . . don't you think?

Well, off to try out my "baked apple" dish. Not too good at the "self portrait" thing, but I think this one will do. Hello everyone . . . good to see you. I adore all of my SP peeps . . . thanks for stopping by.

    Great blog... THanks for stopping by my blog too. And also for the idea about a baked apple. I haven't had one in a long time, sounds very very good.... I love trying new ideas and coming up with great food. I made an eggplant parmigiana that was extraordinary, no recipe, just ideas and then add and taste..... YUM emoticon

    Beautiful pictures all, and yes, a delicious looking salad. Here's a suggestion for your baked apples -- core the tops and bottoms and put a couple of large marshmallows in each end then wrap in aluminum foil. In Boy Scouts on camp outs, we'd core the entire apple, plug one end with marshmallows, fill the inside with those little red hot candies, plug the other end with more marshmallows, wrap in foil and bake over a camp fire. With the melted marshmallows and red hots seeping through the apple -- yum, yum -- if you like red hots. -- Lou

    Ah! YOU are so beautiful... and of course your husband can see it... anyone can!

    I LOVE everything about this blog... it is quintessential you... each detail, fresh (in so many ways), vibrant, exquisite, unique!

    ...and even though I don't have a baked apple dish (though I'm going to be hunting for one), I'm going to bake an apple for my breakfast!
