Vacationing in the madre tierra

Photo grabbed from here.

I'm back in Arizona visiting with my family and enjoying a reprieve from the Indiana humidity.  In my opinion, the hot, dry weather is great and not as tiring as the humidity back in the midwest.  Then again, I'm always in air-conditioned areas, or my parents' pool, so that probably has something to do with it.

Tomorrow I'm going to make green rice for our traditional Sunday dinner.  Generally that involves my dad grilling outside, my sisters' amazing pies or cakes, and everything that is good about food.  I'll post the green rice recipe tomorrow and then maybe later on next week I'll get back to some more recipes once I'm back in IN. 

A pic I took of a storm coming over the Estrella mountains.  I definitely miss the mountains when I'm in the flat midwest.



  1. Beautiful photos! Wish I was there to have Sunday dinner with you!

  2. I don't think the air conditioning changes anything. Hot and humid is exhausting here even when you don't go outside.

    I love the picture of the storm coming in :) When was that?

  3. I wish you both could've been here! The dinner was very nice.
    The storm was in the middle of last week. I've gotten to see two monsoon storms since I've been here with some impressive winds and rains.
