My husband, Kenny, has had this clivia plant, he says, since we’ve lived in our house….about 14 years now and this is the first time it’s bloomed.
What a beautiful flower…..so creamy in the middle and then that bright orange against the dark foliage.
Tonight he’s helping a friend move, so I’m having one of my favorite foods in the world……cashew chicken-take out!
Not THIS kind of cashew chicken below, that most of you are probably familiar with……
I’m having “Springfield-style cashew chicken”…..created here in my hometown…..we’re so famous for it that even the NY Times has written about it HERE. I think it’s like mother’s milk to Springfield natives and if you ever move away, it’s usually one of the first things you want to have when you come back to Springfield. I’m lucky that I have a restaurant close to my house…..like so close that I could walk to it, but I never do because I’d have to cross a really busy street. But, that’s not bragging, because if you live in Springfield, chances are that you have a Chinese restaurant within walking distance to you to.
