  1. Well Happy April Sweet Smoking Cookies!

    Here's to the best month so far!

    March Madness was bittersweet for me - putting a dog down, yet smoking lovely haddock, grilling fantastic things too, and searing and cheering my way into April and with many a wine glass and my Estrella Damm "Daura" Gluten-Free Barcelonian Great Beer! And so, ROAR!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kindly forgive the lapse in posts therefore, while storms galore hit these neck of the woods, as my warm wishes for the upcoming holiday weekend are indeed extended to all!

    Please share your sips and plates and great tales of Springtime plans here too! Because I care! And I do love when we all share!

    And I'll go attempt to upload some of my recent simple albeit delicious & healthful eats/drinks now, from my dear phone.

    Cheers to all!!!! - Leah[/IMG

    Wow...quite a collection Leah. Great presentations and surely delicious creations. Morning person aren't you?
  5. Thank you tons!
    I do rotate the same sort of thing a lot - bison steak, salmon, octopus, and so it goes!
    Nonetheless, a morning gal indeed! (I wake up at 3)!
    Cheers to you and happy holiday weekend!!! - Leah
  6. Eating vegetarian food makes me GROUCHY!

    Very, very, not myself & a little Grumplette!

    (I tried to have a makeshift meal today of whatever was in the house & not go buy some fresh animal, as per my spouse's request; and while I cooked the rice in clam juice and that helped, noticeably missing was a slab of fish or meat or chicken or wild boar or kangaroo or so it goes)! Handfuls of almonds did not cut it!

    Kindly Helex drop an entire elk upon my lawn if you can, as I have learned that even one "meatless day" is not for me.

    OK then, here's the colorful rice nonetheless & with some good cheer sent as well! I hope everyone is smoking, eating, & drinking what they love!

    My lesson is learned!😊
    Cheers! - Leah

    Tropical paradise here,hot ,sunny.
    Quick trip to the markets to look for over the huge range of tropical fruit ,ASIAN greens & herbs. 2 varieties of late season mango I had never heard of.
    Cooking at my mates place today ,chargrilled fish,green papaya salad, water spinach sambal with little dried fish.
    Very light style of food up here,lots of grills,stir fry,salads.lots of fruit driven deserts .
    It's a tourist town so you pay overs for things.

    Awesome fish Moikel. Speaking of full moon, it sounds like you folks down under are going to get a great view of the lunar eclipse tomorrow. Pour something special for that!
  13. Thank you all! So good to be on some here alas, and to hear from you all too!

    Mick, that fish is so fantastic looking, the wine must have been lovely, and papaya is my favorite fruit (fig would be next) and so I applaud, as always, your incredible food and LOVE that you got some good photos in here too! Keep on! And safe travels to Japan! I want to hear about every morsel you eat & drink and if able; please post in here and share!!!

    Disco, thank you tons as well! I have to catch up on your terrific food blog, as I have not been online as much in any way and love what you make and post and so I look forward to such - and while drinking great libation as to pretend I am there! Happy Easter to you both in the North!

    Humdinger, thank you so much and on the dog wishes too! You've been so supportive of my doings and I am always humbled and touched by that and so know that such is appreciated indeed! Happy Easter and epic eating to you and yours this weekend, as I am sure you will make it sensational!

    Not sure how much posting I will do from Japan . Lot of Japanese here in Cairns always been a popular destination for the pack it all in to the shortest time tour.
    This is the most northern city in Queensland got a nice feel. Great farm country inland at Mareeba.
