Back in the fall a friend of mine on Facebook posted this recipe and comment on how good it was. Amy is the type of person who enjoys good food so if she says something is worthy you make note of it. In fairness, I was also intrigued because of the barley. I know, I’m… Continue reading Chicken Barley
Packing Up ‘Christmas’
You’re likely wondering about this image. Yes, it is an odd one. During my first year of teaching I brought two of those tacky pink flamingos into the classroom and inserted them into two large plants I bought to add some life to the room. The kids loved those flamingos and somehow they became a… Continue reading Packing Up ‘Christmas’
Happy New Year
I’m not one for making New Year’s resolutions. Not because I am perfection personified with nothing to improve. Good Lord, not that! In fact, there is a lengthy list of improvements required.

Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apples
Pork and apples are a classic combination that scream ‘fall’ to me. It might because of the varieties of fresh apples that flood the markets at this time of the year or it might be some residual childhood memory. . . you never can tell with me. Whatever, when the leaves start to turn and… Continue reading Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apples
November . . .
This is a pretty accurate depiction of our conversations every day this week. 🙂
To new beginnings . . .
I started blogging in January 2007. When I started I had no idea what I was doing or why. Over the years I have posted close to 6500 times. While I didn’t know what I was doing or why initially, I discovered that I enjoyed writing when I gave myself the time to do it… Continue reading To new beginnings . . .
