Can you believe it's July already? This year is flying by.
First off I'd like to say thank you for all the nice comments and the emails I have received regarding posts I've put up. Not being on Facebook anymore has curtailed some of my social activity with fellow cooks and bookworms .... so the emails are nice :-)
Also, thanks to Danielle of Cooking for My Peace of Mind, The Old Geezer Blog and Mutfakgazetesi for becoming followers of my blog!
What have we been up to? Well....keeping up with our son who is about to graduate from more training at Ft Lee Virginia. We last saw him in May at his graduation from Basic Combat Training and I think we will see him again at his graduation from Airborne training. We miss him yet are so pleased he has found his career path.

Drinks..oh my. This will look like a repost but I assure you...it is yet another Bloody Caesar. My man has created an insatiable need for these Caesars!

We had appies of feta cubes, mozzarella stuffed olives, balsamic garlic mushrooms, artichokes and toasted baguette. Good stuff.....nice before a grilled rib eye.
We did break things up with a Bermuda Triangle - post may be found HERE at Cocktail Puppy.
Riding - Well...it's been awfully hot but we have gotten some nice rides in. Leave early in the morning and get back drenched in sweat but...fun all the same. Love to ride to get breakfast then take an hour to get home.
My Reading Italy 2011 Challenge has me up to 4 books completed so I am still hopeful to meet the 12 book challenge by the end of this year. Hated Eat Love Pray but all the others have been very good. Reading Waiting by Debra Ginsberg right now.
That's about it. Grilling fish tonight and hoping for an uneventful 4th of July. Kobe hates fireworks.....but what can you do?
My husband's family adopted me so I will say our cousins instead of his :-) We have made a couple of trips to Tylertown for visits i...
There are days I just want to be at home. Sit in the den and read while Aja stares and casts judgement. I'm so ready to retire and I kn...
Guess what I made recently? Brown Soda Bread from a recipe in the book Stir by Jessica Fechtor . It was a hit. Moist and flavorful. Per...
