Sunshine and I am Sick Today

     
 

My day started out awful, with one of those stomachaches that
creep up on you. But it is a bright, warm day, the sun is shining, and I thought I would post some lovely things today. 

So I'd like to share with you some pretty flowers and a brilliant video, "Slow Motion Insect Flight" several  insects (Hornet, Butterfly, Bee..) flying off collecting juice. I hope it will inspire you as much as it inspired me.

FOTELIAS said...

Beautiful words and beautiful video. If each day we get up and see the wonders before us we would be more generous with ourselves and with others, but what I see here in Spain is ... the selfishness reigns and keeps discover the treasure of life. Thank you for the beautiful pictures and video.
And especially for your friendship from the network and the blogosphere.
May God bless you and have a nice day.
See you soon.
Blessings.

Hi all at cutand-dry.blogspot.com. What you thinking about chicken recipes? rnexample: rnApple brandy chicken, made with chicken breast halves, apple brandy, cream, onions, and butter, along with mushrooms. rn 4 chicken breast halves rn rn salt and pepper rn 8 ounces sliced mushrooms rn 2 teaspoons olive oil rn 2 teaspoons butter rn 1/3 cup apple brandy, such as Apple Jack or Calvados rn 4 green onions, chopped rn 1/2 cup whipping cream or heavy cream rn 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or 1/4 teaspoon dried leaf thyme rn rnPreparation: rnFlatten chicken; place chicken breast halves between pieces of plastic wrap and gently pound until thinned out and uniform in size. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a large heavy skillet, heat olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add chicken breasts. Cook for about 5 minutes, until browned, then turn. Add mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes longer. Add green onions and apple brandy and cook for another minute, until chicken is cooked through and mushrooms are tender. Add cream and thyme; simmer until thickened. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. rnHave you else any ideas? [url=http://freerecipesforchicken.info/]recipes for chicken[/url]
