Do any of you ever talk to a long ago friend that you haven’t been in touch with for years?  If you haven’t, I highly recommend it.  It’s a wonderful thing.

I had lunch today with a childhood friend, Roxie, who I’ve been in touch with on FaceBook.

She was absolutely adorable when she was young, and she still is!  Smart, savvy, sophisticated, an absolute knockout, but still the same sweet girl I knew as a child.  We had a three hour lunch, laughed until we cried, reminisced about old friends, and caught up on our lives, oh, what a good time we had.  It was so much fun, we’re going to do it again soon.

Maybe I’ve got your wheels turning this afternoon. Perhaps there is someone from your past that you’ve lost contact with.  There is no time like the present to get in touch with them.  Girlfriends are the best, aren’t they?  Just the best!!!

How clever is this?  I found it over at the kitchn site…

6.14.12 If you love banana, pineapple, coconut and lime, this is the recipe for you.

Carlene told me about this last week and how good it was, I made it on Saturday and it was absolutely to-die-for!

If you only make one new dessert this summer, this is the one to try.

It’s absolutely decadent tasting, but only has four tablespoons of butter.

What a great find this is.  It’s posted on Jan CAN Cook.  If you can possibly just cover it in an airtight container and not eat it the first day, it’s much better the second, and by the third, it’s pure ambrosia.  But good luck with that, just letting it age for a day or so…

Check it out, you won’t be sorry, pinky swear. ~ janWinking
