This and That – and Cauliflower

Indio, California:  Enough of this food poisoning excuse for lazing around... I am back to normal-ish. I worked-out and had a glass of wine. These two things are a good sign that I am on-point.

My pretty cousin, Lori, shared this photo with me today. It reminded me that my super-slow shuffling is worth SOMETHING. I also had a manicure and when returning to our RV resort there was great excitement - the traffic light to enter/exit the Motorcoach Country Club was finally operating!

WOOT! The things that thrill me are frightenly scary, wouldn't you agree?

There was a spectacular sunset this evening... but I discovered the beauty too late. This blurry - yet still pretty - photo will have to do.

We watched the State of the Union speech tonight - our responsibility as citizens and tax payers of this Great Nation. After the speech, I served My Driver a vegan dinner from the January 2012 Bon Appetit Magazine - Cauliflower Steaks with Olive Relish and Tomato Sauce. Because I have a teeny oven, I had to make the tomato sauce separately (and before) the cauliflower "steaks" were roasted... but it all worked out well and the dish was quite delicious.

DT (who also loves beef steak) really liked this delicious, low-cost and healthy dinner.

Tonight, I will share a funny teaser (via my sister, Renee) from International Film Channel hit show Portlandia. Though the program is a parody on the Portland, Oregon lifestyle... sometimes, it hits very true to home.

Speaking of Portland... with all the snow, rain and subsequent flooding our home town has experienced, Reader Barbara sent this photo of the hottest Portland footwear:

Due to the shoe color, I am positively positive this version is for the folks in Corvallis.

Until my next update, I remain, your American correspondent.
