Plains & Pastures Bike Tour (2013)

I'm so proud to live here! Fredericton folks are just AMAZING!!!  Thank you one and all!!  My team raised over $2000.  The support was humbling.  What a great place to be!!!

Mind you, the journey isn't about me - it's about people who fight this horrible disease on a daily basis.  If you're reading this now, I hope you'll come back and sponsor me in the ride next time. 


Bike for Breath

Many thanks to everyone and their generosity.  The amazing people in my life supported me to the tune of $377.  Some days it is just great to be here!   (Fall 2012)


I like Green Eggs and Ham

Take all notions and preconceptions about food and throw them out the window.  For example:  Green Eggs and Ham

I hold to the “what’s in the frig” method of recipe development.  Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.  It’s usually edible, although I do have to admit it doesn’t always yield a product worth repeating.  This is where Alan and I differ in the kitchen.  He views recipes as gospel and I view them as suggestions.  But give the man his due, sometimes he follows the experimental philosophy and comes up with something......

Breakfast today was dictated by leftovers.  We had zucchini and spinach left over from supper, and a single lonely pork chop.   A handful of fresh baby kale from the porch garden rounded out the greeneries.  Eggs & cream followed the greens into a blender.  Chopped pork chop was added and the mix met the frying pan.  (OK not exactly ham, but pretty close.)

Aficionados and picky people would probably fret about the proportions of ingredients.  People like me just dump in leftovers.  The recipe below is pure chance.   Similarly aficionados and picky people might have cooked it in the oven like a proper quiche.  Pragmatists and hungry people scramble it in a frying pan and head out to enjoy breakfast in the morning sun.

Either way Sam I Am - green eggs ARE yummy!!  Added bonus: all the veggies were grown on our front porch so they were tasty, young and fresh.  In total the recipe was low carb while packed with all the goodness of eggs, spinach, kale, etc.  We sat on our front porch with hot coffee and our green eggs.   I do indeed love sundays, even if there’s no Post.
