Good  34º ice on the barn roof morning.

We did get some sun yesterday and a tad of blue sky...

Dude did his fav thing on the porch!

Yesterday I made the Crock Pot Salsa Recipe I posted the other day. Don't make it!!!! It did not hold together and it wasn't that good. I am very very disappointed!

My pal Ike, who knows I love wine, and have wine shirts... like this one:

he sent me this little sign....

Thanks Ike!!! xo

When I was at Safeway the other day I saw this... Jackfruit!

The jackfruit is also known as jack tree, fenne, jakfruit, or sometimes simply jack or jak. It is a species of tree in fig, mulberry, and breadfruit. Native to India and Sri Lanka. It has the largest tree born fruit, some up to 80 pounds! It is also the national fruit of Bangladesh. Here is much more information:

I have had a problem with FB and my blog link for some time now. It says it's "unsafe", so I experimented with the link and took off the www and just put and it goes straight through now and doesn't say "unsafe"! OMGOODNESS. I am guessing FB and Google are not the best of friends!

Of course, after that ........ chair, wine, TV.

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

An old French word chaudière, pronounced “chowda”, is a large pot for cooking.  This is the likely origin of the word.
New England clam chowder is a milk- or cream-based chowder, commonly made with potatoes, onion, and clams. Including tomatoes is shunned; a 1939 bill making tomatoes in clam chowder illegal was introduced in the Maine legislature.
New England clam chowder is usually accompanied with oyster crackers.
