Front Coming Through

We had rain

We had rain

That’s how the locals explain it

After what seems like months of warm, sunny days with highs in the 80’s, we are going through a transition. For the last couple of days our highs were down to the low 70’s with a huge amount of rain. Today is the interesting one though. Today we are to reach the mid 70’s and then drop to a low in the mid 30’s ( will feel like high 20’s with the windchill) tonight before we bounce back to 60 something tomorrow and then back into the 70’s  on Monday.
I guess we can put away the flip-flops for a day or two.

Cookin with the Vanstones

Here in the south the word fried means breaded and deep-fried and that’s pretty much how a lot of the restaurants here cook everything. I’ve taken pictures of the big brown mess  we have been served but they are a little ugly, so I’ve never shown you any.

Last night we decided we were in for a fine meal of wings and pizza. We don’t know a pizza joint that does gluten-free pizza crust so now we just always make our own.

I still haven’t gotten used to the taste and mouth feel of the gluten-free crust but we have decided that it’s not about the crust. The real taste in pizza is in the toppings anyway so we load ours up.

Marilyn hit a home run with the wings and the pizza last night. They were both delicious.
