Haiku Tuesday!

I had never seen
The roots of a cabbage
Before Saturday.

Seriously, I hadn't. But I thought this one looked really neat and I had to take a picture. It's from a farmer's market in New Haven.

CSA week something or other

I think it's week #12 but I've sort of lost track while I was away.

TOMATOES- Seven giant big red beefsteak tomatoes.
Green Bell peppers
Red Bell pepper
Cherry tomatoes - sadly only a tiny handful of them
Red Batavia lettuce
Nicola potatoes

Haiku Tuesday!

Why yes, it is true
I am the cutest Mickey
baking dish ever.

I picked this up while on vacation. Luckily for everyone's sanity I could only carry the small size. I want to make macaroni and cheese in it.

New Pie Dish!

Shortly before I went away on vacation I got a belated birthday present of a fabulous new pie dish. I believe it came from Anthropologie. I think this brings up my grand total of pie dishes I own to six or possibly seven. Either way plenty to make an all pie Thanksgiving meal again if I decide to do that. Of course it may also be the start of an obsession with novelty pie dishes.

I was excited to use the dish for the first time the moment I go it. The only trouble was that I didn't actually have anything to make pie out of at the time since I was about to go out of town. Not that this would ever stop me. Instead of traditional pie in the new dish, I give you brownie pie.I love brownie mix and always have some in the house for just such occasions. Now I know it even makes great pie.

Haiku Tuesday!

Back from vacation,
Cleaning ad laundry and now
An Epic Roach War

Seriously, the little buggers have overstayed their welcome this summer.

In other bug related news apparently bed bugs prefer Democrats to Republicans. Perhaps that explains my fall horror.

On Vacation!

Happy Vacation!
I am eating with Mickey,
so no CSA.

Haiku Tuesday

CSA is great!
I get to order fresh eggs
straight from the chicken.

I also ordered meat, dog bones and rye bread. My share partner got raw honey. The eggs made some of the best tasting scrambled eggs ever.
