that looks delicious and a wonderful start to a blog....
Will there be recipes, or just more delectable pictures? Love the leeks in the header!
I love the header photo! Reminds me of those "Play with Your Food" calendars and such.Now that photo of the vichyssoise is making me hungry.WV: petonias--some kind of hybrid flowers like a cross between petunias and begonias?
can't wait to read more!
Slough Lady,So glad you are back. We missed you more than you could know. Looking forward to more weekly material. L and JA
The soup sounds delicious! And I always enjoy your writing. Look forward to reading more!
Thank you for all the nice comments, folks, and for the good wishes. I've missed writing my column so much that to be able to do something similar, like this, is just beyond wonderful for me. Plus ... since I don't work for anyone now, I can write fearlessly and truthfully ... instead of having to beat around the bush. In any case, I appreciate the support and encouragement. If there are topics or things you're particularly interested in reading about, please let me know -- either here or via email. There will be photos and recipes ... and LOTS about local issues ... which occur not only here in Skagit County, but also in little towns all over the country.
