3-31-2010 The Pan Calls the Kettle Black

Tried out my new cooking pan from Wal-mart today... works great!
It replaces my old Dutch Oven pot which had a cooking accident last weekend...
DH 'steamed' some food for supper but forgot to put the water in the bottom of the pot!

3-29-2010 Fire Up the Grill

It's been 6 months since we fired up the grill...
So good to be cooking outdoors again
instead of using the oven!
Now we're good to go for three weeks...
and looking at this,

you'd never know I was a vegetarian for 7 years!

3-23-2010 Diversified Portfolio

I took advantage of the warm temps and sunshine today
to sweep out the winter salt and sand from my garage...

Wishing all my followers a 'Diversified Portfolio'
