As you read this I am at my second day of photography school. I wish I could share my thoughts with you but I’m writing this from my cabin one full week before I embark on one of he most exciting and scary things that I’ve decided to do with my life. Of course that has nothing to do with this post, sooo….
Imagine being in a foreign country and not for friendly reasons. You’re there because you stepped up and joined the services. The services…Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard, the services…to serve. Many people have served this country, they sacrificed me time, family time, friends time and sometimes sacrificed everything, never able to return home again.
Serving and sacrificing for our country, the big, beautiful and diverse United States of America, is what this country was founded on. We didn’t get to be the greatest country in the world without the sacrifices of many people, especially the men and women of the armed forces.
The people who sacrificed for this country come from every aspect of life, rich, middle class, poor, famous, white, black, Hispanic, Asian, Native American and so on. It’s so easy to go on in our daily lives and forget what these people have done for us and how their patriotism is an example to us all.

Sorry, I was getting in the spirit of the holiday…In English: Hello, how are you? Happy Cinco de Mayo! Are you ready to party? For this Mexican holiday, I’m sharing with Chorizo and Cheddar Sourdough Bread for the Holiday Recipe Club sponsored by Erin of Big Fat Baker. For this holiday we had choose from one of these three ingredients: dulce de leche, tomatoes and chorizo. It would have been very easy for me to do recipes with all three (actually I’ve cooked with all three this past week) because I am a lover of Mexican, Mexican style, Tex-Mex, South Western cooking. They are all categorically different but similar in their flavor bases and well, just darn good.
I got an email from Erin over at Big Fat Baker that announced the next holiday for the Holiday Recipe Club was going to be Buddha’s Birthday. Whoa, you say….Buddha’s birthday? That’s right, It just so happens that the Holiday Recipe Club is spreading it’s wings and going international, baby. Which suits this blogger just fine. The only criteria for the HRC is that you must use at least one of the given ingredients. In celebration of Buddha’s birthday we were given a choice of: garam masala, sesame seeds and tofu.

When Easter is hopping around the corner the first food that comes to mind for me is always eggs. More than any other food, eggs represent Easter. Colorfully dyed eggs, plastic filled eggs, cheap shiny grass as a nest for them. Eggs are a birth, a beginning so is Easter and so is Spring.
