Something new to learn every day!

After blogging for nearly 4 years, just this past weekend I noticed a tab on my blog where I can see 'stats', i.e., how many people are viewing the blog and which pages are the top viewed and various other aspects of 'traffic'. Perhaps it is a new feature that I have just not paid attention to, muddling along just fine without it, thank you very much. :-)

However, now that I have found this section, I admit that the data are interesting!

For example, who knew that last week, the top viewed page on this blog was my recipe for lupini beans?? Next is my recipe for rhubarb scones, which makes more sense since rhubarb is now in season!

I don't have too much time to play with this feature since we are now in 'wedding count-down' mode with one week to go until my family starts arriving and less than two weeks to go until my older son's wedding. Are we excited?? Yes, yes, yes, but that was an easy answer!

In the meantime, I'm going to have to check out my recipe for lupini beans and rhubarb scones. They might be very nice additions to the the food I am planning for the open house the morning after the wedding!

Do you have a favorite recipe from this blog (or my website www.CancerRD.com) that you would suggest as 'finger-food' at a late morning open house? Let me know pronto so I can think about adding it into my thoughts at this time. I am planning on strawberries (lots of them) but also worried a bit that they won't be ready to harvest locally, so I am thinking of back-up plans that are not too much work because Martha Stewart is not showing up to 'take charge'!

I'm pretty sure I was one of the rhubarb scone-viewers. We haven't made them yet, but I am utterly confident in their brunch ability. I just picked up the rhubarb yesterday! (On an unrelated note, we also recently made your eggs and kale, which was great!)

Andy and I are so excited for your family! Pass along our well wishes!
