    C- have a great time on your weekend away. Happy Anniversary to you both! Pretty good here cooking wise - but the tourists have arrived ... Spring Break and then Easter! Geeze ... GO HOME Please! Our beaches, restaurants, and roads are a mess. Us Floridians just hibernate this time of year icon_smile.gif Still on my USE what I HAVE kick and doing very well. Over $300 in the bank for my trip this summer (up the eastern US coast for 2 weeks; then the Blue Ridge parkway in the Fall for a week) Nothing too special, but wanted to save up vs out of savings. A little food saving can add up quickly.

    Welcome back Gayla!

    Happy Anniversary Charmie!

    Mickey -- looks YUM!

    SC -- We are about 30 min from the top of the Blue Ridge Parkway (where it meets the Skyline Drive). We love to go in the late summer/early fall because it is always about 10 degrees cooler up there than in town, which is a big deal if you want to hike or ride bikes.

    I am posting late after a CRAZEEE weekend. House guests for Friday and Saturday, 10 mile running race Saturday morning (I was pleased with my results and had FUN!), FIL's 80th bday on Saturday (catered thing arranged by SIL), family dinner on Sunday (relatives visiting from Switzerland), and then on our way home from that we had to go rescue someone stranded on a motorcycle by snow and ice. It was actually a relief to just sit at work!

    Sun - We had the traditional boiled dinner with corned beef, cabbage, carrots, and potato.

    Mon - Spicy Mulligatawny Soup ( Chicken ) with tortillas

    Tue – Spiced Salmon, brown rice, haricot verts

    Wed – Creamless Cauliflower Leek Soup, oatmeal bread

    Thu – frozen fish, pesto, broccoli rabe, noodles

    Fri – Mafe (Senegalese Beef Stew) with leftover rice from Tue

    Here's my cropped version



    but I am sort of partial to one of these photos...YOU?

    Can you let me know which one you like?

    This will be going into the database once "something" is live too icon_wink.gif icon_wink.gif

    has ricotta mixture with bechamel sauce, sun dried tomatoes parm and breadcrumbs and other STUFF lol

    WHOO HOO!









    Really difficult to photograph...had to do tonight instead of waiting intil tomorrow which would have been better light...by then the nests would have been rock hard

    WHOO HOO! In advance thank you!

    Hi Mickey,

    I vote for the last one. I like the top cropped one as well, but I think it is important to have the context (and contrast) provided by the white dish, and the narrow depth of field/focus allows you to do that without drawing inordinate attention to the background (which is suitably out of focus). Well done, though, for non-ideal lighting. --M

    I saw the dirty dish lol

    people reacted to the realistic rustic look

    thank you as your feedback was VERY helpful indeed

    Let's look forward to this week's menus too

    LOVE seeing what people worldwide cook and hopefully we can recruit some newbies (or oldbies lol returning too)

    Hope u have a great day too!
