PICTURE OF THE DAY (my desktop photo!)
Leaf Frog, Costa Rica...
New computer up and running. Learning how to adapt from Windows XP and 7 to the Windows 8. Quite a process. Different but working great so far. It takes more "right clicking" than Windows 7. Things are in different places and you have to find them. I really like Windows 8 though. All great but still can't figure out the sound problem. No sound at all, and all the right things plugged in. Dang. A puzzlement!
I'm still sick about that Malaysian plane being shot down over Russia. Wednesday Thursday Friday!! Oedipus!!!
Here was a great meal I made the other night... Put in a large pan some broccoli, cauliflower, halved grape tomatoes, carrots, cucumber, and small sweet peppers.... add oil and simmer..
Then add in a can of salmon and a drained can of sliced mushrooms..
I had some leftover bow tie pasta with a mild sauce and artichoke hearts, so added that on top and let heat through well..
Put the fresh spinach in a bowl and top with the salmon veggie mixture. OMGOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!
Oh yes, and top with grated Parmesan cheese!
Yesterday Nancy, Gloria, and Jennifer went out to Jacksonville to the Red Lily Winery. What a beautiful place! We had a great time and will definitely go back! Here is a Smilebox of the photos... sorry, hope the music is OK, can't hear it at this end!
