Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens Aglow Dec. 20, 2018

Mike and I took advantage of the great weather last night and went to Boothbay to visit the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens Aglow.  Not only was the weather mild, but everyone was having a great time from two year olds to great grandmas and grandpas.  A worthwhile trip on a beautiful evening.  I hope you enjoy this brief video.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from our house to yours.

The Big Fast Rabbit

Went into the shed this afternoon to get a shovel and a pail to go fill with sand for the sidewalk and saw this animal track -

Whoa, that's something big, I thought.  Then looked up the track pattern and found out it is the
Eastern Cottontail Rabbit  (click link but please be patient it takes about 6 seconds for the picture to come in clear).   I was impressed with the size of it's paw.

Then as I began reading about it, I was equally as impressed with it's speed; can reach up to 18 miles per hour.  Dang, no wonder he beat the tortoise. One never knows.

I'm just glad it isn't a bear because we do have them around these parts from time to time.  Thanks for visiting my blog.  I do wish you a wonderful day.

"Holy, Holy, Holy" performed on my 1887 Mason & Hamlin Screw Stringer Upright by David Theriault

Had the pleasure of meeting a gentleman today when he came to my home to purchase a Hermes 3000 manual typewriter and when he saw my antique piano, he couldn't resist playing for us.
I hope you enjoy his performance.  My old gal performed sweetly for over 130 years old.
Thanks for stopping by.

New Product Review - Caulipower Veggie Pizza and A Case of Acute Coryza

An excellent snack......flavorful enough to please even my picky taste buds. I found it more flavorful than the Pepperoni version I reviewed about a week ago.
Mike said (after the first bite, while still chewing) "t...h..i...s i...s v...e..r...y g...o...o...d", so you can believe him.

I did find that the center (like in most veggie pizzas I've had) stayed a bit soggy so I cut it and put it back in the oven for 3-4 minutes to dry out the center a bit more and it was wonderful.

As I said the last time, I purchased this at our local Hannaford Supermarket and would most definitely buy this again, and again, and again. 

Thanks for stopping by. And, if you are around Norway, ME our Christmas Parade kicks off at 11 a.m. from downtown Norway.  I will not be there however, due to what I believe is the first case of "acute coryza" I've had in many, many years.  Sounds bad, doesn't it.........check the link below.

Thanks for visiting.  Got any chicken soup?
Stay healthy,

Thanksgiving Breakfast - Cauliflower Hash Browns & Eggs

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. What are you having for breakfast today? 
I broke out the head of Cauliflower and made Mike and I some cauliflower hash brown patties and scrambled eggs with salsa. He's not a real big fan of cauliflower and said, "I don't not like it." I'll take it......because after he finished he said, "I'd eat that again."
Hmmmm, now I'm not sure if he meant he really liked it after all, or he was still hungry.

The recipe I used to adapt to my own taste was CHEESY LOW CARB CAULIFLOWER TOTS posted originally by Maya Kramph from Wholesome Stop by to check out Maya's great site when you have a chance. It's one of my favorites to visit, too.
How I adapted the recipe was, I used Mexican 4 cheese, garlic powder, and parsley. I also flattened the tots into patties as I like things crispy and well done.
Enjoy your day and be blessed.
