And so my favorite season started on September 23. Well, my favorite season after the Christmas season. But fall makes me happy. I love the beauty of the changing colors, clouds in the sky, fires in the fireplace and sweaters. Here in the Sierras, we also look forward to the rain.
“Lisa: I’m going to become a vegetarian
Homer: Does that mean you’re not going to eat any pork?
Lisa: Yes, dad.
Lisa: All those meats come from the same animal
Homer: Right, Lisa. Some wonderful, magical animal.”
Barbecue! That word conjures up summer and swimming and fresh fruit and veggies and meat cooking on the grill.
And…the age old argument about barbecue sauce. Should it be sweet or tart? Homemade or store bought? Meat marinated in the sauce or used after the meat is cooked? We are here to say, “Yes!” to all of the above.
Appetizers for Low Carbers or Gluten Free-ers or just hungry people
A family that we know very well visited the East Coast this last month. They took lots of pictures of their trip which we enjoyed seeing on Facebook. They did make a stop in Maine and began showing photos of lobster rolls. I couldn’t get my mind off lobster rolls (especially after seeing so many pictures), so I thought we should make them with our own spin.
We are still waiting to move in to the Mid Century Modern home (affectionately known as The Money Pit) that we are remodeling. The only items left are putting together the Easy Closet System (looks complicated) and getting our brand new Induction Range working. We haven’t even had a chance to use it yet (except once when we boiled water.) And now it doesn’t work, even though the repairman has been there three times and plans on coming out this week. Sigh. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. (If you want to read about our remodeling “adventures” you can find it here.)
