I love photographing flowers and trees , ivy, grasses etc.Here is what i have done with some of my favorite photoshop actions.

Spring Break Photos...about time.

Spring break was like 2 weeks ago and i am finally getting pictures up.
I kept my kids SUPER BUSY!
First we saw How to Train Your dragon...TWICE.  they LOVED it.  I thought it was pretty great myself.
And yes, I did tear up a little bit. Dont judge me. Im hormonal.

We also went to the Nature Museum:

So we also bought a Discovery Place Membership (nature museum admittance fee was rolled into the cost!)

Broccoli Salad

This recipe is my "world famous" broccoli salad.
I have more requests for this side dish than any other in my entire arsenal.
It is fairly simple and straightforward, the worst part is browning the bacon.

6 stalks of broccoli. Washed, and heads cut and divided into bite sized pieces
1 L bacon, browned and drained. Crumbled into small pieces.
1 bunch green onions, chopped(mostly the white and light green parts)
raisins(about a cup or so. i just eyeball it until it "looks right")

mix all together and set aside.

In smaller dish combine:
1 cup mayonnaise (.NOT SOY. NOT LIGHT. NOT MIRACLE WHIP)
1/2 cup white sugar
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar.

Mix until blended well.
Pour over broccoli salad and toss well to coat evenly.
Refrigerate until ready to eat.
