hump day nuggets: pizza, elmo and pumpkins

:: We made really great pizza inspired by Smitten Kitchen (really, what isn’t inspiring about her kitchen zsa zsa zsu?) but, as with most recipes I ‘follow’ it evolved and then was not much like it at all. But delicious. Ingredients from the garden: eggplant, tomatoes, parsley, gobs of garlic. And, then a whole can of black olives and relatively small amount of provolone cheese. All on a garlicky olive oil blanketed crust (we don’t make ours anymore now that … Continue reading hump day nuggets: pizza, elmo and pumpkins →

sleeplessness=potholder and peach butter

I had an exhausting week last week and haven’t really been able to catch up because sleep escapes me. I don’t even promise an articulate post because this lady is tired.

And I have this reputation for missing flights….like, I have missed a couple or maybe a couple more … Continue reading hump day: more than nuggets (steamboat) →

hump day nuggets: minneapolis and mamalode

Family outing to a Twins game. Popcorn, overpriced beer, the wave. It was grand. Margot loved all the clapping and quickly became an enthusiastic fan. Lots of shared summer meals. Voted the best burger in the universe or something like that. The ‘juicy lucy‘ at the 58 (pronounced five eight) Club which incidentally involves driving in circles for 20 minutes to find. A funny little place with planes flying about 15 feet overhead and very friendly service. We had dinner … Continue reading hump day nuggets: minneapolis and mamalode →
