Gifts from the heart....

Isn't this firefly stepping stone beautiful? A couple of my girlfriends came up to visit me last friday for the day and they brought me belated birthday gifts! Although just having them visit was a gift. So my friend Dorissa is very crafty/artistic and she loves to do mosaics and is very talented at it. She knows I really like dragonflies and she made this amazing looking stepping stone for me.
This is from her garden as well, swiss chard.

I just had to use up some of that beautiful looking swiss chard so I threw this together. Saute up some swiss chard with garlic and olive oil. Then threw in some cannelini beans and brown rice. Wallah!!! A quick, healthy and yummy dinner. I ate this along with a wonderful glass of Rancho Sisquoc " Meritage" red wine, thanks to my friend Yvette. Girlfriends are the best!!!


  1. That is pretty much my favorite meal! I make it all the time, except I am lazy and used canned rice & beans :)

  2. both Dorissa & Yvette rock! hooray for a tasty glass of red wine, one beautiful dragonfly mosaic stepping stone, and some rock'n garden grown swiss chard. i looooove the colors in the stepping stone - especially the blue!

    i just had some swiss chard yesterday for lunch. i sauteed it with some onions - but i totally forgot to add garlic. such a tasty idea - how could i forget?

  3. I love you my friend!I am so happy you enjoyed the chard! It looked yummy.
    @ Jessy- Thank you!
