It has been a beautiful winter throughout the country this year. I had almost forgotten about winter. Almost, then I came to Chicago. It was 81 F when I left Dallas at 5:00 pm.

This is a recipe we stumbled across one day that allowed us to use our garden as the primary food supplier.  It is a wonderful recipe and satisfies Baby Lady’s vegetarian needs.
