Spectacular Dantes View

It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around.

Enoki Mushrooms

I always started my day with prayer and thanksgiving to God, then a drink of water, and coffee with milk brought to bed by my hubby. He always brought me coffee to bed before I even open my eyes.

Enoki mushrooms - I boiled it for few minutes then tossed it with 1 teaspoon Mirin, 1 tablespoon water, and 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Baby Bok Choy - I stir-fry it with sliced ginger, soy sauce, a pinch of sugar, 1/4 cup water. Simmer for couple minutes then add few drops of sesame oil. Devils Food Cake with Chocolate Chips and whipped cream frosting I made this cake last night. Eas
