Manicotti. Cheese Manicotti. One of my favorite Italian dishes. There’s a place in Phoenix called Stumpy’s and they make the very best Cheese Manicotti. Oh yum, now I do miss a few things about Phoenix! I’m gonna use a “file photo” for this one.
And, M is also for Moon Stones Candy. I bought 3 jars of these silly things because I LIKE THE JARS they come in!! I think they are the perfect size for storing other small, dry foods. So, I figured they were on sale from $3.99 each down to $1.99 each so I couldn’t buy jars like that for so cheap. Anybody else ever do weird stuff like this??
Now for the letter N, I was about out of ideas, when I attended our local Earth Day/Arbor Day celebration on Saturday. My choice for the letter N is Natural! Natural everything, but in this case, Natural Brew Coffee Filters. And, that’s all I have to say about the letter N. :<) For more A to Z Monday foodies, go visit Jen’s sidebar. Hope you all have a good week. I’m guessing ours should go a bit better than the previous two!

I have NEVER seen this in the shadows on the driveway before. And haven't seen it since. These are flowers our Godson brought us Easter Sunday.
I'm scheduling this to post for Shadow Shot Sunday. We'll be on the road so I won't be able to check in until we stop for the night. For more Shadow Shots please visit Tracy at Hey Harriet. Hope your weekend is going great!
We had an accident last night south of Kanab, Utah. Please pray for us. There's more info on the dog's blog. Thank you and God bless you. Cassie

These goodies were a departure gift from Jeanne.
They say, "Is it love? ...or am I being used for food and amusement?"
My buddy Jeanne is my next door neighbor.
Hootie,our Welsh Terrier always runs over to her door to check if she's home.
He loves her, but nearly knocks her over when he sees her.
These bottom pics were taken at an A's vs. Diamondbacks baseball game that I attended with my friends Jeanne, Dorothea and Gigi last month. The top photos were taken yesterday after we returned from doing lunch at Olive & Ivy in Scottsdale. The gals treated me to a lovely lunch with Champagne cocktails to bid me adieu, since Patrick and I are heading north this evening. This is our 2nd annual "Good-bye Cassie" lunch. Last year we did Postino which was fine, but quite crowded and close quarters. I really enjoyed Olive & Ivy. The wait staff was friendly, yet professional and eager to please. We sat outside and enjoyed the view from the patio and of course gabbed non stop!! Great fun.
I'll try to get a post in on the road. We'll see how it goes. Have a great week end and may the Lord of all things bless and keep all who read this blog.

Kung Pao Shrimp.
At the Super Dragon Chinese Restaurant in Phoenix.
2 words: Yum. Yum. Another favorite K word: KEURIG.
I love this handy-dandy little machine. Bought one for Patrick for Christmas up north and had to buy another for the condo! Pat can drink gallons of java, so still uses his regular coffee maker. For a quick, fresh cup every time though, this is the machine to use as far as I'm concerned. I have a specialty drink I make with the KEURIG each morning for myself. That's for next week's post. For more A-Z Monday please visit our hostess with the mostess, Jen.

These lilacs, even in shadow, remind me of the magnificence of the risen Christ!
In majesty, He is risen indeed!!
This cactus is called The Crown Of Thorns.I thought it an appropriate transition shadow.
For more Shadow Shots please skip on over to Hey Harriet and click Mr. Linky.

My Aunt Terry (from the previous post) just won this 1961 Corvette in a drawing at a Casino in Louisiana a few days ago. Can you believe what kind of luck she has!! She was just saying she needed to get a new car. It's a classic and her deceased husband, Uncle L., would have loved it! He had a Vet and even had it on his business calendar one year too. Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool that she won this one.
