Poem: "Flocking Together"

This poem is spillover from the February 2, 2021 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and sponsored by [personal profile] librarygeek. It also fills the "Cattail - Peace and Prosperity" square in my 2-1-21 "The Language of Flowers" card for the Valentines Bingo fest. This poem belongs to the series Fledgling Grace.

Recipe: "Bell Pepper Beef"

Tonight I made my first attempt at composing a wok recipe from scratch, using available ingredients and past experiences for inspiration. We had half a bell pepper, so I decided to make a version of pepper beef. It went pretty well, although there are a few things we'd like to tweak on future occasions.

Today's Smoothie

Today we made a smoothie with:

1 cup almond milk
1 cup Brown Cow vanilla yogurt
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup fresh pineapple chunks
1/2 cup ice

This one is very pale yellow, agreeable in taste, but not nearly as much flavor as I expected.
