This antique mailbox is in our living room. My husband bought it when he was a teenager and it’s something we plan to keep in the family for a long time. The mailbox has “1948” engraved on it and it’s working location was close to where we grew up.
What family heirlooms do you have or plan to start?
P.S. I’ve made some visual changes to this blog recently and may switch to a different theme in the hopes of having a cleaner-looking blog.
I took my new lens out this morning to see what it could do and to get practice with it.
(the last one is for the upcoming Independence Day).
Have a great weekend!
I have a new lens! It’s a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4. Here are some test shots.
One of my favorite ingredients is roasted red peppers. Yum yum yummy. So, when I came across Pioneer Woman’s recipe for Grilled Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Panini, I was excited to give it a try.
For the recipe, visit Pioneer Woman’s website. I’ve tried many a recipe from her site; I think she’s fabulous and her step-by-step photos take the guess work out of cooking new recipes.
A few notes:
- Since both the pesto and sun-dried tomatoes are canned in oil, I omit the olive oil
- I make twice as much pesto mixture as the recipe calls for so that I have some left over for the following day.
- I don’t have a gas stove, so I bought canned roasted red peppers and they worked great.
- I don’t have a panini grill so I used a George Foreman Grill instead.
Give this one a try!
Earlier today I went to a local park to take some pictures. I was a little hesitant to go because I just took some pictures there last November and I didn’t want to get pictures of the same things. But, now that it’s almost summer, the scenery was quite different.
