My online friend, Jennifer Graf Groneberg, is one busy lady.
She has three young sons, including a set of twins. The older twin (middle child) was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and much of her beautiful writing, both on her personal blog and at Parent Dish, concerns her life with her children. She has the loveliest spirit and reading her posts fills me with joy.
While doing all that, she's recently moved to an older style house, complete with a Chambers stove. We've had some interesting email conversations back and forth about the stove since I used to cook on one many years ago. Rachel Ray's stove is a Chambers.
Anyhow, one of her recent posts included a recipe for Key Lime Pie. With her permission, I'm sharing it here (see the link to her blog in the first paragraph). I liked this recipe because it's simple and even I don't think I could mess it up.
Note: The link to her blog is her name. I should have been more specific.
In other news, I picked up some presents for the girls today in the hopes of seeing them this Thursday. Elcie will have books on Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, and Marian Anderson. Rochelle has two decks of cards and a book of magic trick to play with them. For Rebecca, I found a nice origami kit. I know she can do the cranes and hope she'll enjoy learning more. And they'll have a small box of Godiva chocolate to pass around to all for Valentine's Day.
We're having lovely, sunny, weather except for some early morning fog. Ray & I defrosted and inventories our outside (because there is no room in the house) freezer after I came home from a little grocery shopping, coffee drinking, etc. It was long overdue but the weather was just too cold and wet to get out there and become even colder and wetter. Didn't take long with two of us and now I have an idea what's in there. I'm making a spread sheet of the contents and will keep up with it, I promise.
I have a couple of "joke" posts under this one for any who haven't seen them.
Thanks for the comments. I've finally caught up with all of you I think although I may have been a lurker on a few. My computer is running beautifully and now I know why some things weren't working before. It was on its last legs.
Take care everyone.
