This secondhand gift from a friend has become my favorite cooking companion.


What appears to be a studious moment but isn't.


She hung out at her father's job site and brought home this trophy.


Horse on a porch.

Breaking rock.


Hi, Kitty.


She harvested the beets I was trying to ignore and then forced me to roast them.
The nerve. 


Curried pumpkin is what's for supper.

  6. I have the same under-cabinet radio! LOVE it.

    I want to know more about the chicken BBQ (was that it - too lazy to re-scroll) pizza. I just made a spinach pizza for breakfast - planning to blog it when I get around to the photos.
