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!

Our grandson is in his marathon 'football' season… playing both football and soccer, sometimes both in the same day. He is the blur running in the middle photo. We have had such beautiful weather this week, even I went to his night games Monday and Tuesday this week.
