Whew!!! We moved our parents from Texas to Missouri.....what a job!! It's not quite over; after 1 good-sized trailer and two 26footers, we have to go back to retrieve our vehicle and bring another good-sized trailer with us! It's going to be a looooooooong fall as we begin the tedious process of unpacking and sorting through as we downsize their home. It's all good, though, as it's a huge blessing to have them near so that we can be of assistance to them.
I've missed posting to our blog so I thought I would hop online tonight and get a little something posted. What came to mind were some wonderful figs that I purchased in a French village market we visited while in France. I love figs and they are so versatile. I can eat them fresh and raw and they are delicious.
I've included a little info link regarding figs and a receipe that I think would be fun. Fall is just around the "corner" and I thought this receipe would be a good one to work on during the end of summer so that you can perfect it for a festive fall meal with family and friends.
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
