What about Monday. I always find it hard to get back into gear on Mondays. This weeks Feature Friday is set to go for Marlene for her shop I am very excited to do this for her. The temps are cooler today and we got washed out with a lot of rain over the weekend. YAY for the pollen really bothers me. The plants and trees are loving it. I did some shopping this weekend. I found packs of blank recipe cards. Do you keep recipes? I started doing this when I was a little girl. I don't know where they went to. So I have decided to start writing my recipes favorites and ones I want to try that may become favorites. Something to pass down to perhaps my grandchildren or sons. My sons have a few favorites of Mom's cooking. I also belong to a swap group that swaps recipes. Check out for every possible swap you can think of from recipes to books, arts and crafts, supplies you name it. It is so much fun!

  1. Happy Monday, Glenna - I'm staying in as much as possible, my A/C cranking night and day, but I'm tired of being hot and sticky and suffer the consequences when my next electric bill comes out.

    Stay cool and have a wonderful week. I'm crocheting potholders - my latest addiction!

  2. Swap-bot is great. I've mainly been doing postcard and chocolate swaps, but I'm thinking of doing one about photographs ...

    Nice recipe, I love anything with parmesan cheese.

  3. Thank you for the recipe it sounds yummy. Perfect for a Summer dinner. I will check out swap-bot sounds interesting.
