Family Gifts

Bill stuck a 'top of the pineapple' in a pot a few years ago and I have watered and turned the pot so it would grow evenly ever since.   Finally, all the care is paying off because it is growing a pineapple!!!!  I have no idea how long it takes to mature but I will let you know!
 This is my geranium, which came back on its own from last years planting....always a favorite of mine.
The Egyptian Iris.  They are blooming all over they yard. 
And look who came for the weekend!
Her dress is off for the fancy egg dyeing and a good thing, too, because splashes happen! 
Proof that I can and do cook even if it generates little pleasure.
I have been trying to make my son-in-law's pizza recipe for a year.  I have the dough down, the fixings down but getting that thing from the counter to the pizza stone has been vexing and even a health risk for both me(blood pressure spike) and Bill(smoke inhalation) because even with the fancy pizza peel, I couldn't get this thing safely delivered without it ending up a calzone!
My daughter called last week to say she read on a blog that parchment paper works better than cornmeal.  I had to try-
SUCCESS!
No more tears.  This pizza was delicious to eat-even the kids like the non-supreme side!
Sometimes, daughters know best!
