Cheese is one of the basics I keep on hand in the fridge,
it's a quick and easy snack.
Cut it up and serve it with an apple, pop it on a cracker, melt it on bread, grate it on top of a fresh salad...
it's very versatile.
It's full of fat and that may explain my current shape
I also know it has calcium which is good for aging bones...
combined with daily walks I hope that I am warding off brittle bones.
I was not a regular Costco shopper until a friend showed me the great cheeses that she purchased at even better prices. I now go to Costco every 3 months mostly for cheese.
Behold the latest cheeses...
Large blocks with lots of time before the "best before" dates.
Perfect to have on hand for unexpected guests
I always stock olives, crackers and dried apricots
which make up a quick and tasty platter
served with a glass of bubbly or white wine.
As I sit at my laptop and type...
I am currently doing laundry and cleaning the oven.
The oven is self cleaning so I can relax with a cup of tea
while sitting in the sunny Bungalow kitchen.
rays of spring sunshine
my current favorite TV comedy.
Mr. HB gave me the second season
we have the first one
we regularly laugh out loud when viewing the episodes.
"Laughter is great medicine"
Laughter is good for your health
Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.
Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.
Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.

we have every issue ever printed
we visited their office when we went to California.
Those were the days when they were a smaller company and worked out of an arts and crafts bungalow in Pasadena.
Our Humble Bungalow was featured in the Family Album section many years ago
we are a Canadian Bungalow and they graciously extended their hospitality to us.
Are you in need of a hard working hand lotion?
This one is fabulous.
I wash my hands often working in a school
so I know what dry chapped hands are all about
this one works miracles.
Don't just take my word for it
try it and see for yourself.
(no remuneration was offered by the company this is my personal rave review)
The Bungalow is scented with Verbena
I open windows, run the fan and light a candle when the self clean oven is on
or we are reminded of the roast beef Sunday dinners...
Once Mr. HB came home after I had cleaned the oven
and when he got in the door he thought we were having roast beef on a weeknight!
I wonder what he'll think when he is welcomed home with Verbena cooking!
I have no idea what we are going to have for dinner as the oven is still "locked" and it's nearly 6 o'clock.
It might be take out tonight!
