Here is a DIY project my hubby has been up to. He wanted a baking stone, but they cost upwards of $50. So, he bought this unglazed tile at Home Depot for $13 instead. Since it was too big for our oven, he had to cut it down using a hammer and the chisel pictured below.
Once we find out how well it works, I’ll post an update!
I have a knack for choosing melons.
Or, at least, I’m on a three-time winning streak. Two good honeydews followed by this watermelon, as sweet as can be.
As my family knows, I have a weakness for musical instruments at thrift stores. 🙂 Here’s one of my finds that will take you down memory lane.
Our local farmer’s market is every Wednesday evening. We’ve been getting fresh veggies almost every week (potatoes, summer squash, zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.). I just love zucchini and summer squash, fried up in a little butter!
Coda loves being around when I am teaching piano. 🙂
Contrary to popular belief, I do cook on occasion…just to give Paul a break.
Here, I made up my own recipe:
- Spread pineapple chunks and little smokies on a cookie sheet.
- Drizzle barbecue sauce over everything.
- Bake in the oven 15-20 minutes or until the barbecue sauce begins to caramelize.
- Then, enjoy!
This little friend visited us the other day, and kindly landed on the bushes along our driveway so I could snap a photo.
I haven’t shared a garden photo lately. Our tomatoes are doing remarkably well! Compare this to this photo from about 4 weeks ago.
We’ve eaten one tomato so far, which put in our chicken fettuccine alfredo one evening. With this hot weather, I think we are in for a lot more where that one came from!
