April 13, 2018, Chino Valley-
I attended a small gathering, this evening, in which one of the centerpiece dishes was baked carrots, wrapped in maple-glazed bacon. The dish proved ornery, and two of us settled for loving crunchy carrots with fairly crisp bacon wrap. I like my carrots raw, anyway, but these were delectable- organic and freshly-picked, from the taste of them. Since the other centerpiece was quinoa spaghetti with pomodoro sauce, no one went without a satisfying meal. This omnivore has had many wonderful repasts sans viande, and this was yet another.
On another note, I am now graced by the presence of 900 followers. That the 900th is a dear new friend, makes this milestone that much sweeter. I am keeping up with as many of your posts as my life, in toto, allows. One benefit of being so far behind (14 days, in many cases) is that I am increasing my speed reading skills.
I’ll be off to lovely, vibrant Tempe, for a two-day Baha’i conference, and will post a bit of the desert, in its Spring glory, before returning to Home Base on Sunday evening. Lovely weekend to all!
