Garden Pasta with Seared Shrimp

After a rental car trip from St. Augustine to Jacksonville, 2 flights with a stop in Dallas, a shuttle bus to our car in the economy parking lot, and the half hour treck to our house, we made it home. Tired, sunburned and one of us with a broken toe due to surfing (not me) […]

Pea and Potato Curry

A morning walk with a girlfriend and our dogs – check. A may-jah patio and garden clean up – check. The back yard mowed and edged – check. Old Natalie Merchant blasting on our patio speakers – check. 296 accidental screams due to thinking a wasp was on me – check. The rest of my […]
