This picture was taken in 2005 in the Adirondacks and is one of my favorites. Walking the railroad tracks there is endless possibility!
There is something I love about the New Year. Fresh start. New goals. New opportunities. This past week I’ve been at the lake relaxing, planning, thinking, reading, and just enjoying time with my family. I hope you take the time to do the same and really think about all that 2010 can bring.
Leap and the net will appear!
This is from Cooking Light and is a great quick weeknight dinner….yum! We made it with regular mini penne pasta and decided to serve it hot.
1 T. chopped fresh basil
2 T. rice vinegar
2 T. Soy Sauce
2 T. creamy peanut butter
1 T. dark sesame oil1 t. bottled ground fresh ginger
1 t. chile paste with garlic
1/4 t. salt
1 garlic clove, minced
12 oz. fresh Chinese egg noodles (we just used regular mini penne)
1 c. matchstick cut carrots
8 oz. peeled and deveined medium shrimp
1 1/2 c. julienne-cut red bell pepper
1/2 c. thinly sliced green onions, divided
1/2 c. chopped dry roasted peanuts
Combine first nine ingredients in a large bowl; set aside
Cook noodles in boiling water 1 minute. Add carrots and shrimp; cook 2 minutes or until shrimp are done. Drain in a colander over a bowl, reserving cooking liquid. Rinse noodle mixture under cold water; drain.
Add noodle mixture, pepper, and 1/4 c. onions to peanut butter mixture, tossing to combine. Add enough of reserved cooking liquid to keep sauce creamy.
Sprinkle with remaining peanuts and onions.
Yield: 4 Servings.
Love this one 🙂
Is this really entirely necessary?
I love being outside!
Still the King (but only because Sage is the Queen!)
Run away from the puppy!
Hey – come back!
Strider in whizzy mode (Sage isn’t too fond of this mode….she gets a bit scared by so much speed!) His name IS Strider after all!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day – now that all of our cards are out (200!) I thought I’d share the design for this year which I was really happy with. Obviously a cute puppy makes everything better 🙂
Thank you again to my clients! Enjoy today!
Silent night…..holy night.
Merry Christmas one and all!!
