Day 5/30

Day Five- A picture of somewhere you’ve been to.




Do I have to choose just one?  Or can I show you a couple of them?
 

Mequon, WI  I loved the views from our home, even if parts of it were a little vermin infested.
 

 
Edisto Beach, one of my favortie places in the entire world!  That's Joel and my mom out there having fun.
 

I've been to Paris a few times and this is still my favorite thing to see there.
 

 
I went to Africa for a few weeks.  It smells different than I expected.
 

 
Hawaii is a place that I definitely want to go back to.
 

 
I've been to Greenfield village a time or two. 
 
But the thing I love most about going someplace new, is the ability to come home again when it's all through.
 
PS I took all these photos, if you want to use them go ahead, but if you end up making money from them, I want my cut ;)

  1. Cow poo, people poo, urine, burning garbage. It's its own special poo blend. I think the people are great, but the whole place kind of stinks, worse than paris, which smells like fresh baked bread and dog poo.

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?
