We did a lot and so I thought I would share a few pictures that I took over the past few months.
the one above is before I let my hair go natural.I'm getting these off my cell so some might be before this year like
the one above. with Cindy and I.
my two favorite goats they arent at the farm we go by any more.
I hope they are just moved to another area.
That's Pete and I, we have been a couple now going on 5 years, we were high school sweethearts back in the 50s. and got reconnected on Facebook. Of course, you must all know about Bill we were married 53 years before he passed.
One of many that was taken at our daughter's house with one of her pet goats back than Lilly.
I take a lot of sunrises, sunsets, clouds and sky photos here is one I like.
I take a lot of pictures actually thousands to be exact, this one was at the polo field one day when we were there and they were exercising the ponies.
I cant leave Lizzy out she goes everywhere with us.
We have beautiful flowers everywhere down here in the South.
There are so many it would take up way to much space but I will post a few more.
Here is one of our fun times watching the sand crane raise their twins,
we spent a lot of time checking on them.
My hair is finally free of all hair dye.
The one above was taken on the outer drive that's Lake Michigan
one of my trips up North to visit the family.
I'm sad to say but the polo races here is over today is the last day until spring next year.
I will miss seeing the ponies.
Pete all wrapped up it's getting cool in the evenings now something we aren't used to.
I decorated for Christmas already I wanted to enjoy it since I will be North for the holiday visiting the family.
always a fun time our monthly potlucks.
A couple of other events in our little community
I had to share our new revised wall
we had the bushes removed and simplified the look.
All our neighbors love the look.
I finally managed to capture a butterfly.
Walkers around the polo fields we always see walkers every day
a popular past time down here.
That's all for this time I will add or change now and that until next time
Merry Christmas and Peace On Earth.
I like to end with a recipe so I chose this one hope you enjoy it. And with the Christmas holiday, just a few weeks away below is another great one.
Italian style steak or some call it steak pizzoli.4 fillet steaks
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1/4 tsp mild chilli flakes
leaves from 3 fresh oregano sprigs, chopped
1 cup white wine
1 cup tomato puree
1/2 bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped
freshly ground black pepper
Cut the steaks in half and place them between pieces of greaseproof paper. Press down on them with a rolling pin until they're about 1/2 cm thick, minute steak-style. Season steaks on both sides with salt.
Heat oil in a large, heavy-based pan over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute, then add the steaks. Quickly brown the steaks for about 1 minute on each side, remove from the pan and transfer to a warmed plate.
Add the chilli flakes and oregano to the hot pan, then add wine and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon and scraping the pan, until the liquid is slightly reduced - about 2 minutes.
Add the tomato puree, stir, then return the steaks to the pan. Reduce heat to medium and cook the steaks for between 3 to 5 minutes, turning steaks once, halfway through.
Place steaks on a serving dish, pour sauce over them and garnish with the chopped parsley and a good grind of black pepper.
