Recipes, memories and random thoughts from my kitchen

Not complaining, you understand. Just whining a little. We are really spoiled up here in New England most of the time. Winters are cold and snowy but beautiful. Spring can sometimes be close to non-existent, with lots of mud, but at least we know nicer weather is on the way, along with lots of wildflowers. Fall is beautiful, with nearly perfect weather and gorgeous colored foliage. Summer is usually very nice, with flowers and greenery everywhere and plenty of breezy sunny days. And then there are those days like we've experienced yesterday and today. Just. Plain. Hot. And humid!
That's when I have to remind myself of Psalm 74:17 where the psalmist says of God, "Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: Thou hast made summer and winter." And I have to further remind myself that "This is the day which the LORD hath made: we will rejoice and be glad in it." (Psalm 118:24).
I have to further remind myself that I have a "no whining" rule at my house. Apparently Grammy needs an attitude adjustment!
Tomorrow is forecasted to be slightly cooler. And I won't complain a bit if it is!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
