Blue skies around Ashland… Spring weather is one of my favorites.

The best thing about homemade Chinese food is by far, the leftovers for lunch the next day!

The hubby and I went to the coast last weekend for both a belated Valentine’s Day celebration and a one night gig Craig played music for. I had missed the ocean…

While my husband napped one on our second day at the coast, I walked to the nearby creamery. On top of buying a lot of cheese, I also got this cranberry cheesecake ice cream. The checkout clerk suggested I get child-size because they were “super generous with portions” — SO. I did. And it was obviously served up for the largest child ever!

Some of the oddest fish tacos ever. Leftover smoked sturgeon, two different smoked salmons, blackened petrale sole, sautéed petrale sole. Honey lime slaw and homemade tortillas. Oddly delicious.

This fish sammich, with blackened sole, because it’s what looked freshest.

Sometimes when a girl is home by herself, she wants french toast for lunch. So…she has french toast for lunch.
