This is my idea of comfort food.
Mac & Cheese, according to the foodies on Facebook, is the perfect comfort food for most in the U.S….. It’s good, but a bit bland.
This is also my idea of the perfect breakfast.
Sadly, a long time ago, in a place far, far away I promised mon mari I would not eat this type of food for breakfast…. no cold leftover pizza (if we ever had leftover pizza) no SpaghettiO’s, no chili. Actually, I only agreed not eat this stuff for my breakfast while he was eating his breakfast….
Fortunately, he’s perfectly happy to eat all of my favorites for dinner as often as I like.
This is another pantry dinner – except for the sausages.

Summer is in full swing here. We’ve had over a week of warm sunny days. It’s light until almost 10pm. The pool is getting to swimming temperature.
My potager is planted and starting to grow.
I’ve started my evening strolls around the property – chasing bunnies and admiring the sunsets.
We didn’t get to the garden centers to buy flowers – they weren’t open and we weren’t out anyway. Some of the lavender in the boxes around the pool survived and are growing. In the rest I planted some leftover herb seeds.
Sunsets last awhile this time of year. It’s peaceful sitting and watching until the end.
We all need peaceful moments – they seem to be harder to find lately.
