I Couldn’t Find My Cucumbers

I couldn’t find my cucumbers.  Can you guess why?  This is what happens when the weather is hot and cold, wet and dry. We get rain, then it gets really dry and then rain again. That kind of weather makes for fertile ground to grow weeds and grass.  Throw in “no time” to tend the […]

My Healthy Egg Salad Sandwich

There’s one more week to Lent.  Some of you may know that for us Catholics, one of the things Lent means is that we give up eating meat on Fridays.  I love seafood and I like eggs so I enjoy this season of our Church.  I like the idea of getting closer to God, eating […]
