Impatient Pansies and other Cheer

The past month or so has been punctuated with some beautiful ones too wonderful to be wasted inside.  Yesterday wasn't what I would deem ideal with clouds and random sprinkles. . . but it was warm and pleasant enough in the afternoon and evening to get out and fill the flower pots with happiness for Easter weekend.  A flat of pastel pansies (pinks and creams with touches of pale lavender), impatiens (perky white, pinkish, and candy-striped), kale and petunias (a gorgeous deep purple with yellow) did the trick!

The front porch with its touch of Spring. . . time to get the humming bird feeders up too.

MMMmmmargarita Chicken Gravy and Rice

You want some, don't you?  Oh man!  And this stuff is crazy delicious!!!  When we go to this one restaurant, this is usually the only thing on their menu I will order and *know* that I'll like it. . . Well - I've been hungry for this tangy chicken and the restaurant is nowhere in sight, so I decided to make it myself!



(I apologize for the annoying shadow at the bottom of this photo. . . the 'back up' photo taken was *all* in shadow.  Guess it was just one of those days)

The Magical, Flowerful, World of Epcot

As I sit here in the ksyardbird Studio enjoy the light and warmth of the sun after several days of living without it. . .I'm taken back to our days in Florida, and, especially Disney-Epcot's Flower Festival.  Talk about some great (as far as I was concerned) timing - check it out:

The Best Meal I've Made. . . Today

http://www.thespicehouse.com/spices/crushed-caribe-red-pepper--flakesThat's exactly what Hubster said last night at supper.  I'm still not sure if it's politically correct, actually a compliment, a little insulting, or. . . (the one I'm going with) code for "This Recipe's a Keeper."  I can also tell you - there were NO leftovers!
