View of Lake from The Lodge – You can see why I don’t want to leave!
We’ve owned a lovely vacation home in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania for several years but, for some reason, this year I’ve really fallen in love with both the house and the Poconos themselves. I’ve been, perhaps, a bit afraid of becoming attached to another “place” after selling our beloved farm in Quebec four years ago. But, as often happens, just when you think you’re not ready to love again…. you do. And that’s a good thing!
Last week one of my sons took me to see the play Wicked in Philadelphia – it was excellent. And yesterday I went to Allentown, PA to see a traveling exhibit of a collection of Henri Toulouse-Lautrec’s sketches and posters. Toulouse-Lautrec was friends with many of the famous Impressionist painters of the late 1880’s such as Degas and Gauguin, and was influenced by them. I love his work and was so happy to see the exhibit.
I feel bad that I haven’t posted in a bit – BUT – within a few days I’ll be posting the two things I’m making today – Baked Pasta with Mozzarella and Parmesan, and Rustic Italian Bread. Some of my family will soon be coming to the Pocono house with some friends, and I thought they’d enjoy having a ready-made meal in the freezer!
So, I’ll be back in a few days with two new recipes. Sending big hugs to all of you.
