Go Operation Christmas Child!

We had our stint at the fair, Kealani and I, manning the Operation Christmas Child booth. Helping anyway. They had quite a few volunteers so she got time off with Grandpa to go on some rides and eat cotton candy (yuck). But, maybe that's where she got all her energy, outdoing everyone with handing out balloons, tattoos and informative leaflets.

Yes, it's time once again to begin collecting items for these shoe boxes, which will be sent all over the globe to needy children. Click on the name above to find out good ideas for filling your box(es) and for a great video and information on the project.

Just an Easy Recipe

Cauliflower in Bearnaise Sauce
This was absolutely good. I had to stop eating, get my camera and take a quick picture (though it didn't come out as clear as I'd like) so I could post it for you. And, why it's so easy ........

Not to advertise or anything. I'm sure other brands would be as delicious? Maybe.

All you need to do is wash, trim, cut up and steam some cauliflower. While it's steaming (just til barely tender) follow the directions for the sauce and put water on for your pasta (or maybe do that first). I added about 1/2 cup of grated sharp cheddar to the sauce. Then, add the steamed cauliflower to the sauce and sprinkle with some toasted macadamia nuts. A little arugula or a nice salad on the side. Oh boy.
