I KNOW THAT MY NEW COLORS ARE RATHER VIBRANT, BUT I'VE BEEN FEELING QUITE COLORFUL. THE BOYS ARE ALL IN SCHOOL, INCLUDING MY BABY - KOUASSI. HE STARTED PRE-K, AND WON'T LET ME CALL HIM BABY ANY MORE - BOO HOO!!!
I PAINTED THIS LOVELEY GIRL A FEW MONTHS AGO, AND HAD HER HANGING OVER THE PANTRY DOOR IN THE KITCHEN. WHEN MY MOM FIRST SAW HER, SHE SAID THAT SHE LOOKED SO WELL-BEHAVED, AND NICELY RAISED. I DECIDED TO TAKE HER DOWN FOR A FEW MINUTES, THAT HAVE TURNED INTO DAYS, AND FROM DAYS INTO WEEKS.
BUT I DID PHOTOGRAPH HER, AND SHE IS BEING SHARED WITH THE WORLD ON MY WEBSITE, AND IN THE CATALOG THAT I'M WORKING ON GETTING OUT TO MY CLIENT LIST.
This Sunday morning (or early afternoon, actually), the boys wanted me to make something a little different for breakfast (or brunch, actually). Tiassa wanted strawberries in his pancakes, Kouadio wanted cinnamon in his, and Kouassi wanted banannas in his. This was all well and good, but it turned out that I wanted something a little different in the homefries, so I threw together this little recipe for Sundried Tomato & Basil Homefries. It was really easy. All that you need is to serve 5 is:
I decided to finally get to the business of blogging. This picture of my youngest - Kouassi, sort of explains what I've been up to lately. I took this picture on a pretty hot day last summer. As you can see, there are few things that compare to playing with ice in the kitchen sink, on hot summer days.
