Sunny Days

Man, has it been beautiful! It's very difficult for me to be inside studying Portuguese right now. I'm sneaking away to do a new post and show you some of our "Sunny Day" pictures.







Here are a few pictures from "around the neighborhood".





And here are some showing all the food our neighbor, Vino shared with us. Michael offered to help him in his fields without payment, just to make a friend and practice his Portuguese. But Vino insisted we take food from his fields as payment. (By the way, how do I cook those big green leafy things?)....notice how small Vino is!

Wow, it's lovely there. Is that swiss chard the neighbor gave? That's really good cooked with potatoes and oil.

It's so pretty!

I agree with Aunt Wanda, boil 'em and season them and let us know how they turn out. Sounds like a lot of work to me though.
How are things going with the paper work? Hope all is worked out soon! Love and miss you guys!

Ask your neighbor's wife how to cook them and learn some new vocabulary words! When we were in Hungary I cooked Hungarian once a week...it was a great opportunity to interact with my neighbors and learn their culture!

Your pictures are always so beautiful Nina. I just love seeing your home, and the sunny weather. It makes me feel happy for you, as God's love for you all comes shining through so clearly!

Love, Molly

Looking at those photos makes me hungry. It doesn't appear that we need to mail you any vegetable seeds after all! What a bountiful gift....the Lord is good, and as we see, supplies our needs....vegetables, all the fruit you can eat right there in your backyard; isn't He wonderful?

I love you,

What beautiful veggies!

Those green leafy things look like what we call "acelga" here. Saute chopped onion and tomato in oil, then add your washed, chopped leaves to it with enough water and salt to steam them. Delicious! Sorta like spinach.
