it’s just strawberries
part of the fruit food group
remember the Beatles song Strawberry Fields Forever?
my first paying job was picking strawberries at a
neighboring farm when I was 12-years-old
I’m a pro when it comes to strawberries
strawberries with garnish
no calories in garnish right??
professionals do recommend 2 to 4 servings of fruit per day
one down...three to go!
heart embroidery for place settings at a ladies luncheon
let me take you down, strawberry fields forever....

ice, ice, baby
and a good day for chili!
Last Sunday, Mary of The Fork and the Road, and I trekked to the Laurel
Highlands area for a cooking class...One Pot Meals.
Chef Greg Andrews prepared five courses, each paired with an
appropriate wine chosen by wine pro Ashlee Andrews.
Mary, the good blogger she is, was snapping pictures of the
first course of Chicken and Black Bean Chili.
me...I was plowing through the chili just
short of licking the bowl clean
Mary has the proof
So on this cold, icy, foggy, snowy day
there is a pot of Chicken Black Bean Chili simmering on the stove
shhhh...don’t tell chef tho that I took a lot of shortcuts with his recipe
like buying the chicken already cooked
the stock from a box
and the beans from a can instead of sorting, soaking and cooking
still good enough to lick the bowl clean with fresh homemade bread!
...keeping my fingers crossed that ice in the first picture doesn't take down our power lines,
and that you all are safe and warm during this latest winter blast
