I enjoy gardening a great deal. My cooking revolves around the garden all during the summer months and even as I am harvesting I am planning for the following year. There is always change in a garden. My favorite cookbook is a litle metal box of recipes that I have collected from friends over 44 years of married life and moving from place to place. Now when I look through my recipe box it is often a nostalgic trip through the years to fun places and great friends and precious experiences. I do not have a favorite dish to cook but I thoroughly enjoy cooking all the fresh veggies from my organinc garden. I usually pick, wash, prepare, and put on the table within a few hours. Freshness is a delight.
