I knew all along the baby was going to be a girl and squirreled away all sorts of "girlie" things. Mom and dad didn't want to know until the arrival day so they got their surprise.

I can't imagine how intimidating little Erica's boyfriends will be when they want to take her out. Five brothers to check him out....whew! One thing's for sure, she'll be a tough little cookie.
Congrats, Gramma! I'll bet she will be much adored!

I got one bite. Good thing I made a pot of baby red potatoes, mashed them with some butter and garlic and the rest of the Gorgonzola crumbles I also sliced up some cubenelle sweet peppers and fried them and a small eggplant from the yard. Dinner was good so I'm told

I'd love your recipe. What is a cioppino?

Ironing, what is this ironing that you speak of?

Is it peculiar to Australia?

Z It's an Italian fish stew. I'll post it for you in the fish forum. Hope you like it we love it and often have a bunch of friends over to enjoy with us. Lots of French or Italian bread is perfect with it as is a green salad.

Oh, and I just realized I missed today's National Talk Like a Pirate Day! AAARRRGGHH!


Pirates - that puts me in the mood to get The Pogues CD of "Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash" and give it a spin.
