Surprisingly delicious

We had this quinoa dish a few weeks ago. With just quinoa, peppers, and blue cheese with a olive oil/vinegar dressing, it was unexpectedly tasty and satisfying.

The husband is pretty close to my complete opposite in the kitchen. While I do all the dishes before I cook and then take out one or two ingredients at at time, he creates a mighty disaster and then deals with it all at the end. It's been a good lesson for me that different approaches can be equally effective. I just stay out of the kitchen while he's baking!

Every morning on the way to work, there is an intersection at the top of a hill that provides a fantastic view of the Dallas skyline. It's a great highlight to the morning drive.

Best of the lot

Ben recently brought me flowers, which was awfully nice, since I spent the last week being attacked by some kind of germs. Having cheerful flowers to look at improves anything. As the sun was going down yesterday, I realized that I hadn't taken any pictures, and I hurried to snap a few shots. Unexpectedly, the very last one I took turned out the best.

Part of our apartment that belies our minimalist decorating tendencies. Have a peaceful Friday!

To ruin a quotation from Benjamin Franklin, garlic is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

One of the perks of living in Texas - it may be November, but there are still flowers blooming!

As you can see, our apartment complex has issues with gangs. Often I have to walk past this intimidating bunch on my way to pick up the mail.
