Chicken Chatanika

Sometimes you come up with a dish....and you simply have no idea what to call it. I decided to call this "Chicken Chatanika" - named after the river that I love to spend time at. I thought it had a nice ring to it.

So...Chicken Chatanika.

A while back, I posted about rediscovering something that I love to do....paint. I never said I was a professional or anything, but I do love it. I painted this last night.

Aurora and a little Announcement!

Last week, the Aurora gave another nice display, and since it was not negative 41 degrees, I decided to go out and take a few photos.



Photo for a Friend

The other day, I was on facebook, and I mentioned that on my list of things to do that day, was the chore of driving to North Pole to go to a pharmacy to pick up a ridiculously expensive medication for Hickory.

A friend from school commented, chuckling, that I was driving to the North Pole.

So I took this picture for her.



She was tickled :)

Maple Walnut Pie

This pie is a nod to the traditional Pecan pie, with a bit of a difference. It uses Walnuts instead of Pecans, and Maple Syrup instead of Karo. The results are delicious!

Another Birthday

The end of November marks a very busy week for us. We have two birthdays and Thanksgiving normally within a week's time. The most recent was my daughter's birthday.

She is 9.
