UPS Dave stopped again yesterday. This was more stuff from Amazon. I had ordered some of my favs.... and also something new. Karen's Just Veggies...

These are fresh grown and dried. No additives of any kind. Grown in Westley, California. Really good for a snack. Or, they could be added to an egg dish or soup. Dried peas, corn, carrots, bell peppers, and dehydrated tomatoes. Also a good topping for baked potatoes. 
You can check out the Just Veggies website, they also have dried fruits...

Later dinner was reruns, chair, wine, and TV.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.
