I was doing some back-to-school shopping online and asked Jack if he could think of anything he needed. Without hesitation, he replied: seersucker shorts, a black belt, a white button-up shirt and a black safari hat. Wow! I found everything but the hat and was shocked when he turned down the offer of argyle socks. Tom thinks I might have created a monster, but I think this is fabulous giveback for me being the only gal in this house. Tonight I'm going to cook up the last of my homegrown potatoes- thinking of thinly slicing them and sautéing with EVOO, garlic, and rosemary. I like the way the slices puff up when you cook them like that.

Just found a recipe for a cream cheese/goat cheese/creme fraiche cheesecake. Good lord!
