ON THE BACK BURNER

June 6

Does it ever stop raining.Just when it stops for 30 minutes, it starts again, only heavier. I had a tug of wills  with Dixie. As soon as she did what she was supposed to do, I changed directions and started walking home. When a 14 lb. dog gets hard headed, she feels as strong as a bull dog. I won, of course, but it was not a fair fight. We had our family meal between the drizzle and the down pour. We are using my deck now as our gathering place, and if we move the table  and put the chairs close, we keep dry. I made a recipe from my newest cookbook. It's a simple childhood treat that was really fun to make and eat. Take mushy white bread, cut the crusts off, roll the slices with a rolling pin. Spread cream cheese mixed with powdered sugar on one side, roll it up like a cigar,dip in melted butter,cover in cinnamon sugar and bake. There wasn't a piece left .Perfect for a rainy day , and since we are all grown up now, instead of a glass of milk, we had it with a cup of coffee.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
