Grrr-rr-r! . . . Linen.

So . . . I bought the first 2 shirts online with a pricing I could
not resist. Much to my surprise it was made from linen fabric
a " most unforgiven " type of fabric. It is the least favorite fabric
that I like. It wrinkles easily . . . always needs ironing . . . and it
certainly doesn't give the appearance of an immaculate dresser.

bland in taste we use to put cream and sugar it then it tasted
good like pudding. One day when we were at luau my Dad

would be eaten like it should. Now I can go to any luau and
eat it as tradition meant it to be.

The Best of a Caesar Salad

I absolutely love my Caesar Salad. There's Caesar Salad with
Grilled Chicken or Seared Blackened Ahi but I like to prepare mine

a touch of sweetness to balance the tangy Caesar Salad.
