Just some beach shots

Enjoyed a wonderfully warm day at the beach; even managed to get a touch of tan.

Spent the evening at a friends house. They just happen to live right on the beach. Pretty dang sweet! That view is amazing.

Check out these beauties! They turned out soooooo good. We mixed in some mild blue cheese, onion, diced jalapeƱo, diced banana pepper, and a few seasoning. Poured on some Franks Red Hot Wing Sauce and added some veggies.

This picture just doesn't do it justice!
Look at all that goodness!

My birthday presents!

My husband is the best. He got me these orchids. The green on is a vanilla orchid which will (hopefully) produce vanilla beans in a few years.

Home grown green beans with dinner

Green beans with onions and bacon! We've made this three times and it is amazing! Quick pickle beets (I swear they don't taste like dirt, even if my hubby says otherwise) and a chicken alfredo with fire roasted tomatoes, fresh grated Parmesan, and parsley from the garden.

Garden update

Cherry tomatoes



From left to right: green beans (bush), tomatoes, daikons, and radish

More green beans, and two types of basil

Green beans - so far we've harvested three dinners worth

Beets (more beet greens than beets themselves)

And last but not least four stalks of corn with one ear of corn per stock.

Not too bad for the beginning of December!
