Not only is our son talented at music but somehow, even with his mother's bad influence, he has become a good cook! The photo above is of a meal that he made a few months ago. Do you notice that the sauce on the fries is in the shape of a heart? And he must be my son, I love the big portion of fries (chips) that he has given himself! In our house, we say "chips' instead of "fries", it can sometimes cause confusion, but welcome to my world!
Hey! Did you know that you can grow a pineapple yourself? Just cut the top of a fresh pineapple and put it into water and once the roots have grown out, you may plant it into a pot! Bring it inside during the winter. My brother has a greenhouse but we just keep ours in our garage. We think our winters have been just a bit too cold, so we have had this nice spiky plant but no pineapples. This year, for the first time, we have a pineapple. It is small, but it is a real pineapple and we are very excited! The photo below is my brother's pineapple, the one that we have is much smaller! Kay from Hawaii just had a post recently about the best way to cut a fresh pineapple. I love it when I see something on a blog that is such useful information. Thanks, Kay!
Our summer hasn't been too hot this year but it is still nice to have cool dessert, don't you think?
I made something this week that Richard and I both really liked. It was so simple and easy you won't believe it. One large strawberry jello- follow the package directions but instead of mixing it with 2 cups cold water, use 2 cups Just Juice 100% cranberry juice! Serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Delicious! By the way, did you know they say "jelly" instead of gelatin or Jello in England?
This dessert would be strawberry Jelly in England. I told you things can get confusing at my house!
I spoke with Christopher this evening and he is getting very excited about his band playing at Smith's Olde Bar on Thursday night. He said that I should be able to have a link to his band's Facebook page very soon and all of you will be able to hear him and his band! Oh dear, can you tell I am getting excited. Think I'll go have some strawberry "jelly" with some ice cream to calm my nerves!
Pineapple, music...it reminds me of Iz from Hawaii . Sadly, he is no longer with us but we still have his music...enjoy!
