I’m a retiree in Northern California.  As a retiree with more time to cook, I enjoy preparing meals for my husband and I regularly.   We very rarely eat out because I’m often disappointed with restaurant food no matter how reputable the place is.

We grow citrus – oranges, lemons, and grapefruit – and herbs in our garden.
