Trader Joe's missing recipe!

I got a bit fed up with my other, unfinished layout so put it aside for a while!!
Trader Joe's recently opened a store close by and of course we had to go see what the buzz was all about. I love their tasting bar for testing new foods before I buy, and so far I've loved their spinach salad with cranberries, pecans and cheese.
In spite of the green tinge caused by the pesto, I also really like the Pesto Orzo with pine nuts and parmesan cheese. I put the recipe and ingredients somewhere, and can't find it - darn!

Ikebana Lesson 1970

Although I spent a number of years studying the art of Japanese flower arranging, there were rarely, if any photos of me arranging because I was always the one behind the camera!

Edosan, showing the lines of soe to a friend.

Once a week our teacher would travel all the way
from Tokyo just for us five girls!

Our lesson was always such a treat. Besides talk
of flowers, there was always good conversation on
Japanese philosophy and art
