My shirt pocket is pretty busy these days

I am wondering if my new (and first!) smartphone (iPhone 5S) will antiquate my 'ol spiral pad for taking notes and jotting down little reminders.  The iPhone is just awesome with its reminders (with dates, times, and alarms) and calendars.  I've even downloaded a few other apps looking for something even better than what came on the iPhone.  So far I really like the calendar app from "sunrise".

But I just don't have the heart to abandon the 'ol spiral pad and pen.  So... for now at least... I will carry both.

[An added bonus:  I just went to the dictionary app on my iPhone to look up "antiquated".  I wanted to be sure I used it correctly in the first sentence above!]

What's up with the snow?

Check out these shots from our front yard!

Parisian carrots from Trader Joes

Hey, I did all of this via my iphrone and the blogger "app". But I wasn't able to change the size or centering of the pictures.

I picked up this frozen vegetable today at trader's. Parisian carrots.  We think this is a new product...basically little round carrots. Actually, they are kind of hard to eat. Laurie lanced them with her fork, one at a time. I found I could scoop three up on a fork and gently balanced them on the fork as I brought them to my mouth.

What's cookin'? Chicken and Pesto Tart

Laurie has made this a couple of times.  Very yummy.  We rate it "good enough for company".

You'll find on my Webite (haha, cute, I mean Website) bigger images and some step-by-step triptych pages (to download for printing), if you want to make this recipe.
