Pav Bhaji

We are blessed to have some lovely Indian friends here they really enjoy introducing us to North Indian street food. One of these dishes was Pav Bhaji its a simple Vegetable curry that is eaten with a warm buttered bread roll. Its great to make a big pot of this and have as a fun alternative to sandwiches for lunch.

This dish also reminds me of my sweet sister in law as its a favorite of hers love the power food has to connect us all.

Old German Baptist Brethren Church

I love driving along country roads and exploring and I stumbled on this old church on a Clemmons back road, I knew it was old so I jotted down the address and googled it. It has recently been listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings. 

The church was built in 1860 a small brethren church that has been in use until 1999, when the last two families left. The church, originally known as Fraternity Church of the Brethren, was established in 1775. 

You can imagine the simple lifestyle these German immigrants had, likely farmers.  There is an old abandoned house at the end of this road I wonder if it was built around the same time.

 There is history and stories to learn all around. Sometimes its fun to take a moment and discover your area.

A Landscape Photo Series

I always enjoy #frifotos each week on twitter this week's theme is landscapes so I thought I would share a few. I adore being outdoors and exploring new area's landscapes, coastlines, orchards, farms and nature. Nature and its wonder is truly one of lives gifts. 

The above picture is Iceland. I Have fond memories of this Island its rich geography and friendly people. Every country has unique landscapes and regions to explore with local people and their stories to tell. Special weather and plants, cuisine and things we can learn. 

There is beauty everywhere when we look for it even in the roads surrounding the area where you live, neighboring counties places to be discovered.
