Apricot-lime Shrimp

I love dishes that you can add anything to and it seems to work. This dish does that for me. It is easy to prepare and makes a delightful meal. Not too heavy and not too many calories. I found this recipe in Family Circle a few years back. I have made many modifications to it. Here is my latest version.

Did you get my text?

I think that was what my cat - Claire was saying. My husband and I were in the kitchen cooking yesterday, when Claire jumped up on the counter. My husband keeps his phone, iPad, keys and other goodies on the corner.

Get stubborn stains out of your linens!

Did you ever pass up a lovely linen because it had a stain on it? Or maybe your linens are in good shape except for one or two stains. If you need to get rid of a stain, then this remedy might be the answer. I say, "might" since some stains are just NOT meant to come out. 

Here is a tablecloth I bought for 50 cents since it had a couple of stains.

Pumpkins, cucumbers and pickles?

So what does cucumbers and pickles have to do with pumpkins? Nothing really, but when you have a farm, it just might be related. At least that is the case with the Long and Scott Farm in Zellwood, Florida. We went there to get fresh corn and some pumpkins. Loved this sign that greets you.

Ringing in Fall

I know that officially fall started in September. However, since it was so warm here in Florida, it just didn't feel like fall to me. So I am ringing in fall in October.
Eclectic Red Barn: Ringing in Fall Plaque and School House Bells
My husband collects bells and the large school house bell in the middle was the one my mother rang when she was a child in a one room school house. As the American Pickers would say, it is the story behind the piece that makes it special. How we obtained it, is quite the story.

A Strange Place to Find a Sea Shell

I usually find my sea shells at the beach like everyone else, right?  However, do you have any idea where this one is? Stumped? Well, it certainly surprised me. It is hanging, but where?
