things that strike my fancy.by caroline
1. This Gnocchi with Goat Cheese, Grape Tomatoes and Basil recipe over at Eat, Live, Run. I think I might have to whip up some of these and make a gluten-free version of this recipe. It just looks that good. I may, of course, have to cut back a bit on the tomatoes.

2. This book. The title had me a zebras, and my naturally inquisitive nature, simply has to know why … no, really, why don’t zebras get ulcers?
3. Dooce. I’ll love her always and forever. She can make me laugh out loud and cry all in one blog post. I can only hope to one day tap into my creative genius as she does in her writing. Oh, and her pictures … oh, my … just beautiful.
5. One of my most loved poems, The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost. My favorite part? “I took the one least traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
The Road Not Taken
by Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Happy Friday everyone!
