Between the woods the afternoon
Its fallen in a golden swoon,
The sun looks down from quiet skies
To where a quiet water lies,
And silent trees stoop down to the trees.
And there I saw a white swan make
Another white swan in the lake;
And, breast to breast, both motionless,
They waited for the wind’s caress. . .
And all the water was at ease.

When Daddy is away the key in my book is distraction and relaxed creativity. In other words, some rules that normally apply such as bedtime routine, limited snuggle time in mommy’s bed, and adventures to normal sites are all out the window. We adventured far and wide, missing dinner and improvising with sleeves of Ritz crackers and bags of rice cakes.
I realize this is my second recipe on beans, but what can I say, they are a super food I am willing to support!
