I pulled over, put on my flashers and grabbed my camera to catch a quick photo of this ducky family. The little stinkers did not maintain their perfect little trail across the street and by the time I go to them they were already in the grass. There is something about that little trail of ducklings following their momma that always catches my heart. I got my photos, returned to my car and as I was putting on my seat belt to leave, when a kind woman stopped to ask if I was o.k. My heart was touched twice on my way to work that morning!
I spent another lovely day yesterday cooking for dinner guests. We started with a toasted goat cheese, pear and walnut salad. The salad was followed by chicken with a lemon caper sauce, mashed celery & potatoes, and steamed broccoli. For dessert I made Crème Brule with raspberries, and my guests brought what they called “ cherry cake” which is a glorified Clafouti, AND they brought real whipped cream. Seriously, does life get any better than two desserts? They don’t drink and rather than flowers or bottle of wine, they brought a more precious gift. vegetables from the garden! I can’t wait to see what delectable delights I can create with them!
