The Time Has Come The Walrus Said...

So our dreams have finally come true.

Or in other words....God is really, really, really good!

I GOT A NEW JOB that will enable the Hubbs to quit offshore and come home. This dream, now a reality, does not even feel real as of yet.
It's been a long time coming, 6 years.

SO that's the good news....

The bad - I will probably have to say good-bye to the blog :(

I'm not going to erase our account BUT the postings will be few and far between as I have a new job where I will have NO time to do it at work, and am so busy at home - I won't do it then either. And I think Sist quit on me a long time ago...:)

BUT, monumental road trips and special times WILL be posted and of course I will continue to follow all of you but the day-to-day inspirational posts will be no longer.

I love each and every one of you and love keeping up with your lives. I know Sist does too.

Here's to a new chapter in this thing we call 'life'!

Great Summer Salad!

I first discovered this recipe from Cooking Light.
Modified it a bit and wah lah! Perfect Summer Salad!
Enjoy!

1. Preheat oven to 450°.

2. Combine sliced avocado and juice in a small bowl; cover and refrigerate. Trim both ends of corn cobs, leaving husks from corn intact. Place the corn on a baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until tender. Cool. Remove husks from corn; scrub silks from corn. Cut kernels from ears of corn; discard cobs.

3. Reserve 4 whole lettuce leaves. Chop remaining lettuce to measure 4 cups. Combine chopped lettuce, avocado mixture, corn, and radishes. Spoon lettuce mixture into lettuce leaves. Serve with Avocado-Herb Dressing (Recipe Below:)
