1. Mountains of mulch and compost wait for loading at the garden center. The scent of mulch fills the air. Sweet, like cedar.
2. The name on the check is Greek. It has many, many syllables and a sing-song flow. I am impressed by the names people carry and intrigued by their possible meanings. Of course, a beautiful name could end up meaning "goat boy" or something.
3. Our dinner was a spinach and cheddar strata with sides of tomato salad and brussels sprouts. Very economical plus delicious. I especially liked how the bread cubes browned and crisped on the top.
