China: Goddess Stream: March 2016

Our second excursions on our trip down the Yangtze was along a tributary. We traveled in little wooden boats with yellow roofs. The windows were on a track and were easy to open but it was a chilly day. The windows were opened for pictures but they didn’t stay that way.  Before the Three Gorges… Continue reading China: Goddess Stream: March 2016

China: Climbing the Pagoda: March 2016

Our first port along the Yangtze was a little village with a fantastic pagoda with ninety-nine stairs to the top. The walk through the town to the pagoda was just as interesting as the structure itself. Starting at the end of the ramp to get off the boat and stretching about a hundred yards were… Continue reading China: Climbing the Pagoda: March 2016

Foodie Friday: Dill-Chive Butter

I have not done much cooking with fresh dill but the little bit I have done has been quite flavorful (it was called for to garnish a fish dish). In the last TexSelect Farms Grab Box there was fresh dill. To be a bit different I decided to mix the dill with chives in butter… Continue reading Foodie Friday: Dill-Chive Butter

China: Along the Yangtze: March 2016

There was something peaceful about being on the river boat. We were finally away from the large crowds and constant lights and traffic. Opaque and milky, the greenish-gray of jade, that’s how the waters of the Yangtze looked to me. There seemed to have always been a mist hanging over the river and the shore.… Continue reading China: Along the Yangtze: March 2016
