ABC Wednesday - K is for . . .

Kick up your heels for joy, as in this dog having a blast at Tom McCall Waterfront Park last Saturday.

Kindred spirits, as in this photographer and all of us CDPBers.

Kindred spirits, again, as in all Portlanders who have enjoyed our double row of cherry trees beside the Willamette River, between the Burnside Bridge and the Steel Bridge, seen here in the background, and all Washingtonians who have enjoyed their cherry trees at the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C.

Hi Lynette

All these cherry blossoms everywhere - my neighbour's has still got bare wintry branches!

Today's English terminology lesson for you "rasher" - a slice, usually used in connection with bacon. I've just had one for breakfast - a rasher of rindless back, very lightly fried in a pan with the barest minimum of oil (from a 1-cal spray) and then an egg cracked into the hot pan and poked to allow the yoke to run out and solidify (I turn the gas off at this point as the heat in the pan will cook the egg without the need for more heat). Actually I cook two rashers and two eggs, one for me and one for my wife - served up as a sandwich betwen slices of lightly buttered [well not butter but low-fat spread] brown bread.

happy salivating!
