Tabebuia or Trumpet Tree

What a lovely tree this is. Its full name is Tabebuia caraiba and grows from central Florida southward. In the spring it produces clusters of yellow trumpet flowers.

My Bouillon Fringe Foot Stool

PJH Desisgns 
It is my husband's annual golf outing with his brother, cousin and dad. Each year they come to Florida to golf. This year they decided to come to our house in Eustis. They golf and I cook. Well, it is not that bad since I like to cook and I get to garage sale while they are out. I came across this little stool at a garage sale.  She was asking $5 but I got it for $2.50.

My Little Squirrel

My desk is a great place to work, because it is beside two large windows that looks out on my side garden. I am still working on getting this garden populated with plants and yard art. The other day this squirrel came over to the fountain for water. He climbed up and drank not only from the tray on the fountain.

Bolognaise Pizza Bread

I first saw this recipe when Rachael Ray made it several years ago.  She makes her tomato sauce by adding fresh tomatoes, but I cut some corners and it still turned out great.  With a side salad this makes a great meal.

It is like deep dish pizza but has more filling.  My family loves this and requests it often.

Island Mango Bread

My Turn for us 
If you have followed my blog, you know that I have several mango trees in my yard. Last year was a bumper crop. I had more mangoes than I knew what to do with. I made everything with mangoes.  Finally, we decided after giving many away to freeze the rest. We cut them into chucks and froze them - all 40 quart bags of them. Yes, I had mangoes!

Well, I try to use them as much as possible from the freezer, but it seems like they are multiplying in there. Guess what - my trees are loaded again. So I have been trying new and familiar recipes. I found this one and made changes. I sent it to work with my husband for all of his employees. I have to do something here !! They loved it so I am sharing it with you.
