Yay me!!!

If you look on the side, I 'got' my "Followers" list 
and their corresponding 'Favicons'

("Why, Hello!!" ;-)
For months and months (...when I started this blog anew from Milwaukee, WI) 
I could not get this mysterious list to reappear! 
(Copy-paste-copy-paste-error message!!!) 

Celebrating you.

 Tonight's fare: Rare Cedarburg,WI jalapeño cheddar brat paired with a specially made bun and vegetable paella (short grain rice dish.)

Vegetable paella made in a (large) cast iron skillet; Paella recipe (we made a purely vegetable variation) found on page 9 of art culinaire; fall issue; volume 70.

Rare siting: A 12 inch Cedarburg, WI jalapeño cheddar brat browned in a pan with Black Boss Porter (by way of Poland.)  

(...I like gleaming surfaces.) 
My kind.

Garden gone...

Hidden Kuri Squash everywhere!!!!

Can you guess what this is?

(Milwaukee soil must be good!! 
...This is the biggest garden we have had yet!) 

Not even Boone (NC) compares!?

Our Lone Sunflower (planted by accident in a vegetable garden...) :-)

A rare sunflower beauty. :-)
(My husband was able to discern this was 
a sunflower early on and left it to grow.)

"Why, hello."
