Imagine this Beauty in your Garden!

 
Wow, I just ran across this gorgeous stained glass structure while doing my early morning peruse of PinterestCan you imagine anything so beautiful in your own garden?  Can you imagine yourself inside of this enchanting art piece: the sun streaming through and reflecting all the colors, blending them-- what if there was sunshine AND rain falling: imagine the rainbows!  This is the inspirational and beautiful idea-filled material you will find on Pinterest... are you part of it yet?  If not, why ever not?  Follow me and I'll follow you!

If you are the photographer/artist/owner of this image, let me know and I will credit you or delete it from my blog.  The same disclaimor is on the Tumblr blog where I got this from.

For the Love of Leftovers...

Every little 'prairie chick' from my era (don't ask)learned that it was important to clean out your fridge before you left on a trip... something like making sure you have on clean undies when you go out(?)

So, we're heading to see our son, daughter-in-law and the chicklettes, so it is definitely leftover time! And it's a yummy meal we got out of these leftovers too... I left the instructions in case you feel inclined to get like-wise adventuresome!(under the picture)

 Strawberry-Avo Salad
 Kind of bothers me to go off while there are still piles of lettuce leaves just at their peak, but you know... and there is a bunny who frequents our yard, so it'll be his domain (without Zoe to bark him out of the place).
  • Romaine or whatever greens you got going (fresh preferred)
  • Organic Strawberries (however many you are up to)
  • Avocado, peeled and sliced/chopped (the last from a "discount bag")
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon (the last 1/2 left)
Fry-Up Onions and Greens
  • Coconut Oil (1 T.) (to fry the onions in)
  • 3 good-sized Onions, chopped
  • Assorted Greens Husband brought in with the Lettuce (Dandilion, Kale)
  • 1/2 Jar of Leftover Spaghetti Sauce
Brown Basmati Rice (well, not technically a left-over, but delicious)

No-Meat Balls (left over from a cooking demo a couple of weeks ago).  Go HERE for the recipe (worth it)
