When a Clever Chef and a Big Spoon Get Together . . .

I really need that Spoon Garden and most of all the Fork Garden.

They are right. Insulated plaid chicks are good for the grown-ups all year round – or so I’ve been told!

Yes, I do think I need a drink. Thank you! Oh wait. They are condiment jars? I thought they were ice buckets. Oh well, I guess I could drown myself in mustard instead . . .

My cooking pleasure has not yet included merry-go-rounds but I guess it could.


Hey! Let’s Pig Out Inside a Giant White and Gold Cupcake

Dear Sis –

If you are ever hungry for too much to eat just show up at the Kapok Inn. We ate there last night and are in Ft. Myers today. We plan to go on to Miami tomorrow. We will spend Sat. eve, Sun there and go on to north Mon. Lots of fun, Paul

It sounds as if Paul ate so much that he expanded to Ft. Myers. How a meal could continue to expand him all the way to Miami the day after is something to think about. But he’s having fun, so that’s what matters! I would be having fun too if I were sitting inside a giant white and gold cupcake being endlessly fed.

But here we have two feet of snow and I have to go make my own breakfast. I can only dream of expanding-by-eating through the warm cities of Florida and after all that was done with, after I’d eaten enough to place me right beside the ocean, of  taking the lessons that would make me a mermaid.
