....the morning sun!

The perfect spot....

for early morning solitude....

A nice place to revisit this morning, especially when the washing machine won't start, and the clothes are already loaded in it!  More Monday "merriment!"

Busy days....

....this week with a UMW Mission u in a nearby town.  I've not had time to spend on keeping up with blogs or responding to comments.  Hopefully I will get back on some sort of schedule next week. 

The week-end is here!  I hope you have a good one!

This has been the focus of the study I chose -

Those leftovers....

.....came from this recipe -

About half this amount now remains!  No "weeping" on this meringue this time!  Don't know how I avoided that!:-)

Not just gluten....

Often, when someone has shown a sensitivity to gluten, difficulties may also be noticed with a group of vegetables called "nightshades."  I am not knowledgeable enough to be able to list all of those, though tomatoes and peppers usually make the list.

So - in my quest to locate a recipe for Baked Beans that didn't have a tomato base - or an ingredient like chili sauce - I was thrilled to see this one!

I made a change or two in this one, using Navy Beans (Eden Organic - low sodium) instead of the Great Northern and omitting the bacon - just in case some vegetarian family members dropped by and wanted something to eat.:-)

I was so immersed in preparing the recipe that I neglected to take a picture until this point....

The recipe makes enough for a crowd!  

The Husband....

....was happy!

Chocolate Cream Pie - with meringue - from!  City Girl helped us enjoy it and took some home!
