I have been in vacation from my blog!!! Just realized that my last posting was over a month ago. Boy!!! where did the time go??? We have had dinner every nights, couple of nights out for a great pizza at our favorite spot, some night a quicker than lightening dinner, left overs that is.
Last night we decided to have fish. I just received some wonderful tomatoes, fresh from my mom’s garden. Yes, she mails me her tomatoes and zucchinis.
She must have a special connection with her post office, because every piece of mail she sends me, and it is not Priority but just regular mail, arrives the day after.
Added to the tomatoes I just received from www.boxedgreens.com dinner was easy to put together.
Love when that happens.
