I live near a neighborhood called Waverly Heights in Sellwood. It's one of the nicer neighborhoods in the area outside of Lake Oswego. All I really knew about it was there was a golf course over there that I could see through the fence near my condo. There was also a boat landing further down … Continue reading Waverley Country Club and Pioneer Cemetery
Our dinner this particular evening was New York Strip and a Spinach & Cheese Souffle. Jim had done the shopping and I hadn't seen the eggs until I opened the carton. They were so perfect and gorgeous in every way. It almost made me cry, too much beauty. Can't walk away without telling you how … Continue reading It broke my heart to break these eggs!!!
The other night we made some of our Green Chili with Pork Stew and there were some leftovers in the fridge. I wanted some breakfast and Laura suggested making a kind of "Shakshouka" by adding eggs and poaching them in the leftover Chili. Well that was a great suggestion.

Yes, yes...I know we haven't been writing during the last week. So we apologize, however, we have been traveling and now that we're sort of settled into our Lake House in Wisconsin, we wanted to share some observations.

As you can probably guess from a few articles I've written, I have a special fondness for roadside stands that sell unhealthy American food. It's one of the reasons I miss the gym so much since I have to cut back on it a bit. As I mentioned when talking about Mike's I'm forever looking … Continue reading Roake’s Hot Dogs
This one has always been a favorite of my parents and me. It's a relatively simple meal once again utilizing the chicken breast technique that I've used a few times now.
