We had so much fun last week with our Spring Breakers and attending my yearly woman's retreat. I always feel so refreshed and ready to meet the world head on when I return...and of course I am always glad to see "Honey Bunny". I am glad you stopped by to have coffee with me today, its time for a break. We can go over the menu for next week.

Many time's when my boys are coming home, they want me to make the Lasagna, it is one of their favorites.

I am so glad that you were able to come and spend some time with us today, it is always so good to see you. Please come back to see us soon, I hope to see you at Full Plate Thursday.
Peace and Joy
