I was in the mood to try a new recipe.  This is something I used to do all the time but in my current state it is rare.  Well today I had the urge to cook and I went with it.  I went to one of my cooking resources, Pinterest, and made my selection.
I studied the recipe and gathered my ingredients….

(Made a mistake below.  The lemon was not used in the recipe or the wine.  I got carried away:-)





Very good!  I would give it a 8/10 on my cooking scale and it was easy.
Now for dessert.  I took some pre-made tapioca then added a few blueberries.  A quick, easy and 
yummy way to complete the meal
