Brissolles Nov. 2010 9x12

A two-hundred-year-old farmstead in the Loire Valley region of France with the modern touches of Pierre’s van and the photovoltaic panels on the barn roof.  My sister, with the help of the neighbor with a tractor, plants this field of flowers every year.  I did this back in 2010 and it’s one of my favorites.

Corned Beef and Watercress

Corned Beef and Watercress

Corned Beef and Watercress is a classic Sumida family dinner from our small-kid days.  Quick and easy to prepare, Ma made it often and she insisted on using only Libby’s corned beef in the black and red can.
