  1. Are zucchinis the same as courgettes? That looks lovely. I love chickpeas and mushrooms.

    I don’t know why, but I cannot post a comment when I am looking at posts on your site Michelle. It keeps asking me to log-in although I am already am logged in. When I do type in my user name and password it doesn’t seem to recognize me.

    1. Interesting, I will have to check that out. I am sorry about that. Please keep trying to comment though I love your comments. I am not sure if Zucchini is same as courgettes, I will have to look that up.

    2. I have no problems commenting on WP Reader….but I cannot look at your entire post on Reader, I have to visit your site to see the post and then go back out to Reader in order to comment…
      …if I am being a lazy bones, I just press “like” because my head can’t cope with all the faffing around to and fro! This is not a criticism lovely Michelle, I just wondered if there is a reason why it is so difficult to comment on your site?

    3. I think because I have a “Approve comments manually” thing that is what is happening. Thank you for letting me know dear friend! I appreciate it.
