NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It’s my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian ‘Quote Cup’ passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!

We are in the heart of our family ‘birthday season’… tonight celebrating three birthdays at Chuck E. Cheese at Centennial Lakes Park, possibly followed by paddleboat rides…
