This is a cooking blog with a back story. It focuses on food, family, fiber arts, pets, friends, and fibromyalgia. It's about life at a certain age, the joys, the sorrows, the backaches, the mental confusion. There's a lot of kvetching, complaining, occasional profanity, righteous indignation, political incorrectness, knitting exhortations, and really good, original recipes.

Kwitcher Bitchin and Carpe Diem
I am in an oddly cheerful mood. Maybe because I slept late, maybe because I had such a lovely time last evening. Maybe because I haven't taken the damn iron pill yet. Perhaps it was that awesome strawberry margarita I imbibed while enjoying the view at Downtown Disney. Whatever the reason, I am embracing it on this Sunday before Hell Week. Oh yeah, I have seen my court schedule for next week and it simply defies description. But for today, and only for today, I am feeling quite chipper. Carpe diem!
Downtown Disney and the Lego Dragon. Yep, all Legos.
Eric, his really neat kids, and his lovely wife Amanda
Eric's brother Brian, and Brian's lovely wife Christine
... and a couple of grown-ups. Kathy, Rob, and Alan.
We also got to meet Amanda's mom Sue, and I just had the best time with all of them.
While I am carping my diem, I am throwing caution to the wind and expanding my friends list on Facebook. Six degrees of separation and I'm having fun. See ya in cyberspace ;-)
Now a bit of news from the culinary department - regardless of what anyone tells you, there is no recipe for lasagna. I've got the perfect proof sitting in my fridge. Talk about a creative use for leftovers ... we'll see how this one works out after I bake it off tomorrow. I have never made a lasagna the same way twice. I know I've never made this one before ... collard greens? Yeah, stay tuned.
