Monday,,.All in One

Recently while  rafting on the river,
reminiscing about reunions of the past.
Recalling  red food repasts and recipes....
Red wine accompanying Roasts,
both rare, and Standing Prime Rib.
Remembering  Red Beans and Rice..,
from the Redhaired cousins in Louisiana.
Red hot chili peppers ..
adding even more zest to the  already spicy recipes.
Red potatoes and green beans from the other Southern relatives..
Rices.yellow and  even well as white..
Delicious Rice puddings,
Rhubarb pies..
By now I was ready for  a frosty, ice cold beer..
Root Beer..float?
and maybe a red delicious apple to munch..
I left the raft at the ramp and rapidly responded to another request...
My flight on American Airlines was ready for boarding!..
MY FAMILY reunion was underway..
and my presence was requested!
Yep.. Leaving the Mile High City in the Mountains..
for sunny beaches of  The Emerald Coast of   Florida!
Please visit Jen at Unglazed for  Monday Foods..
and Sally at Smiling Sally for Blue Monday..
and Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday..

Make and take those wonderful memories..
