I vividly remember my innsitting debut at the impeccable Blue Door Inn in Baltimore arriving with my clipboard in hand. What caught my eye were these 2 baggies full of what looked like paste. The innkeeper Roger orientated me on the House as my eyes wandered off to 'those 2 baggies', Well as Roger finally got to the bread instructions my anxiety increased. Day 1,this, Day 6 mix, Day 10 bake...Yowza. Well, I couldn't find Roger's electric mixer so I hand stirred everything patiently and well it was a partial success as the bread turned out a little lumpy.

Well, at the risk of introducing a sad issue but a reality, we'll take the risk. We've read where returning veterans are having a hard time adjusting as they come home.
When our friends, John and Rob, sold their Inn (William Page Inn) down the street, they were thoughtful enough to give us early pick of furniture, artwork and other pieces, that they predicted would not 'fit' in their new Fort Lauderdale home decor. For example, their cherished tall grandfather clock would brand them 'the northerners'' for a while! And I assume they would get the same reaction with this portrait, so it is in safe surrounds now!

When I signed up to be a guest chef at the Sunday City Dock Farmer's market this Summer, the few openings available were in late November, so I anticipated a cold pre-winter Sunday morning freezing my 'you know what' off. Well,what a surprise that this past Sunday, and today in fact, is in the 70's.
I found it so refreshing, when I found my guests in pajama pants playing chess on my little 'table for 2' in the common area. I have a chessboard set which I optimistically leave set up, hoping that I put the king and queen on the right color spaces.
