Lately whenever Julia's mad at Alex she'll holler at him "YOU'RE FIRED!"
That would be yours truly. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! Thank you, Jenn Johnson! Now I know what to name my Food Network Show, when I get one. Any day now, I expect.
I take all these pictures, sometimes with the intent to write up some sort of accompanying post, and then it's tomorrow and I make a batch of bread or cheese or something (both of which I did yesterday, but I'll write them up after I sort through all THOSE pictures), and the more interesting (to… Continue reading Stray Postless Pictures
And that's a LOT shorter than the original title, which was "Lasagne of Homemade Ricotta, Homemade Mixed Greens Lasagne Noodles, and a Quick Homemade Tomato Sauce." The "mostly" refers to the mozzarella string cheese I used (hadn't made my OWN mozzarella at this point) on top of the lasagne.
This morning we were outside looking at all the gorgeous dew, left from the early morning fog and last night's rain. Simply beautiful. I posted the story over on my little gardening site, because it seemed more appropriate over there. But then again, since it involved my son taking it upon himself to serve breakfast,… Continue reading And Would You Care for Some Tea With That?
Earlier this week we went fishing off the rocks - the East Wall in Point Judith. Bill actually did most of the fishing, as it's a little dangerous for the kids to be reeling fish in and standing on the wet rocks while the waves crash against them. But the kids played on the sand and calmer water on the other side of the wall and occasionally Alex would get to reel in a fish part way, and then Bill would take over so the fish wouldn't smash and scrape against the rocks.
WOO HOOOO! I DID IT! I told my sister yesterday that when I was done and all the mozzarella balls were formed (or eaten), I felt this urge to cry...it was similar to after both my kids were born, only without the pain. And, of course, not as wonderful and amazing as my children, flesh… Continue reading Fresh, HOMEMADE Mozzarella!
(mice? no...that was my daughter) A couple of days ago I wrote that I'd baked some bread and that Alex had pronounced it "gooder than sushi." Those of you who know of my just-turned-six-years-old son's absolute passion for raw fish will understand that he can bestow no greater compliment on a food and its cook. Holly, at… Continue reading “Gooder Than Sushi” Bread
So we had a hail storm yesterday. We'd had kind of crazy weather all day - blue skies and puffy clouds one minute, dark gray clouds, pouring rain and sky to ground lightning the next. The national weather service (or whoever does this) even interrupted TV programming to run some severe weather warnings throughout the… Continue reading Hail Yeah.
This week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe, the Mixed Berry Cobbler, was chosen by Beth of Our Sweet Life, and if you'd like to see the recipe, you can head on over there or - better yet - go buy Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From My Home to Yours. Anyway. I was really, really happy to see that… Continue reading TWD: Mixed Berry Crumble
