I love that this curry starts out with so many fresh vegetables. 

My sister-in-law Renae, made a big pot of this curry for the family the other night…because she’s sweet like that! =) It was so good I’ve been craving it ever since.

The wake-up call came when my son kept bringing me my phone. I started to wonder, “Man, doesn’t he think I can live without this thing?” Most likely he was just trying to be helpful but it made me stop and think and I realized its about time to hit the reset button on this whole electronic thing.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie

Mom was the pie maker around home so when Frieda suggested a pie fundraiser for our local safe house, I was a little intimidated but we talked about it and decided to go for it. She worked at her parents bakery for many years so her confidence level was quite a bit higher than mine.
