"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

Here are some photos of food, and a recipe, that I organized last year for my facebook.

This one below, from a trip, a cavalgada (calvacade-trail ride), that Hubby and I took in 2007.
While the others rode horses (8  h-o-u-r-s!!!), I went by delicous, wellsprung, airconditioned pickup — the 3 minute try-out on the back of one of the horses was proof enough, again, that definitely I DO NOT know how to ride!

at the stop-over fazenda

Bread! I love bread!
I didn't bake these though... (I wish!)
these are from a bakery near our home; photo at our table

My cousin Karen's pumpkin pie recipe that I begged for!
I made up the graphic presentation below... the pie in them is the actual pie she made/makes!
( I wish she lived nearby........)
