Italian Recipe- Cheesy Bakes Eggplant & Caesars Salad

The other night we prepared this recipe that we got from Mary. Thanks Mary, it was delicious! Cheesy Baked Eggplant, and we also had Caesar's Salad, and old favorite of mine. I made the Caesar's by scratch with anchovy paste. At first I was not pleased with it but once it was tossed with the salad and parmesean it was actually quite delicious.

Canyon Creek, Junction City, California

One of my favorite places to go and swim is Canyon Creek in Junction City, it is easy to get to and usually there are not too many people, especially on the weekdays. The water here is so pretty, fresh and clear. It is truly beautiful.

Trinity River, Summer Day in July 2009

On 4th of July after the parade I went down to the river to relax, with my cousins daughter and Lily. It was very hot and the water was ice cold. Takes your breath away, when you go underwater. It is the most refreshing! These two photographs I took after wading out into the middle of the river.

Moon in the Morning

Yesterday morning I saw the moon was still out above the mountain. Shortly after taking these photographs the moon had descended below the western mountain. I love how the moon looks when in blue skies.

Fawns on the Trinity River

These two little fawns were near the river, their mother was close by eating. They were very cute when they saw their mother and ran towards her. They saw me and sat down again.
