Happy July – What’s Growing on?

We celebrated CANADA DAY very unceremoniously this year.. thanks to Covid-19.  Honestly, Bill and i aren’t ones to celebrate Canada day very ceremoniously any given year.  Not that we don’t love our country and where we live.. but we just don’t love crowds.  We actually really really really don’t like crowds, traffic, parking, etc.  So […]

Kale Chips & Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

Our church family welcomed a new baby girl this week, so I’ve been arranging meals for the family, […]

Ice storm.. so cooking up a storm
