My sister Linda’s grandchildren, Patrick and Katelyn Borland, painted her portrait for Mother’s Day.  

If you look quickly from one picture to the next, it appears her mouth is moving, very realistic!  

Hey, they just animated their Gigi!

Great job kids!  

“Just Being Jana”

JanaThe other day Steph got out of the shower to a smoke filled apartment. She called Mike and they determined it was because she had turned on the heat for the first time and that all would be fine. I got to thinking… She called Mike and not me, so I pondered on who she calls for what occasion. She calls Mike for advice on how to cook something, fix something mechanical, cut a board to build something, when her car is making a noise and for various questions on history, animals and growing things. She calls me when something hurts or if she is people watching and wants to make fun of someone. I’d say our roles in this family have been determined and well assigned….

Have you tried purple cauliflower?

Purp CalifPurple cauliflower is available year round with a peak season during the winter months. 

It is a cool-season biennial cruciferous vegetable.

Purple cauliflower’s color is due to the presence of the antioxidant anthocyanin, which can also be found in red cabbage and red wine. 

Displaying vibrant violet hues, Purple cauliflower may be different in color than its white counterpart, however, on the outside, that is the only difference.

The entire plant (floret, stalk and leaves) is edible. The stems and trunk are firm and tender and the florets have a dense yet soft and crumbly texture. It’s flavor is milder, sweeter, nuttier and free of the bitterness sometimes found in White cauliflower. 

Cauliflower is rich in vitamin C with a half cup of florets providing nearly half of ones daily requirement for vitamin C. It also provides a fair amount of fiber, vitamin A, folate, calcium and potassium as well as selenium, which works with Vitamin C to boost the immune system.

Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower are known for their high levels of cancer-fighting phytochemicals know as glucosinolates.
