It was a beautiful Sunday here in Maryland. The sun shone down on the land and it was warm enough to sit on the porch without a coat and read for awhile. When I came inside, I made some more salsa for the week and then whipped up some cheese and crackers for a late lunch.
This is my current favorite way to serve cheese and crackers. I have fallen in love with roasted raspberry chipotle and I don’t care who knows it.
I first had this heavenly sauce in CT while visiting friends last weekend, so on a trip to Stew Leonard’s (the most interesting food shopping experience ever) I bought a bottle after Annie pointed it out to me.
I used Carr’s crackers, Philadelphia cream cheese and Fischer & Wieser’s sauce.

While working on photos for this post, I noticed a red and white theme emerging, so I decided to only post photos that have red and white in them. I get weird like that sometimes.
I went to WalMart today to get potting soil, seed starter and some seeds and picked up this fish toy for the black and white. It was a steal at a dollar. We played fetch outside in the snow until he got tired.
More red and white here in these wonderful mittens I received from El and Seamus, relatives who live in Canada. El told me that these mittens were all the rage in Vancouver right now. And they are so warm with their felt lining. They also sent me a thank you card for helping them out with their blog.
Their blog began as a way to chronicle their trip to Morocco over the holidays. Before they left, they had asked me a few simple questions which I happily answered. Then while they were away, I enjoyed seeing the photos and reading about their trip while they were in the midst of it.
More red and white. I’m still sticking with the theme here.
No, wait. Now how did this get in here?
I will tell you what this is if you promise not to freak out, ok?
Longtime readers will know that my husband enjoys bringing things home that he finds on his walks. You can go ahead and click on that link. It’s from two years ago and is all of about two short paragraphs long.
The photo above, if you haven’t already figured it out, is the tail of a rabbit. I want to think that the little bunny lost its tail from getting it stuck on something and is still out there running around somewhere with just this tiny piece of its tail missing. Sort of in a Squirrel Nutkin-way. But it’s more probable that either an owl or a fox got the rabbit and this is all that remains.
Of course, my husband had to bring it home to show me. And it is interesting, and very soft.
This is life in the country. And sometimes I just can’t handle the excitement of it all.
Hope you have a good day, all. Thanks for stopping by . . .
