  1. Just two words: I'm jealous. Ok technically three words
  2. I've never been to Spain. But my husband and I were married in Ouray, and my parents live there. (I think I know which store your mug came from, K.) Here's a challenge that most people get wrong the first time: pronounce Ouray! MelissaH ← Not to hijack this blog, but I was raised in Lake City, Co. Ouray is just over the pass from us! It's "Your- Ray"

    Dinner! 2007

    I second that, plus the sweetcorn looks sooo nice. I'm definitely going through another Italian phase, tonight a ma-hu-sive Osso Bucco. This was about 5 hours ago and i still feel quite stuffed ← OMG this looks good. I've been talking about making Osso Bucco. Is it always lamb??? Help me out. Which cut do you buy?
  7. My first breakfast picture We buy eggs from a lady up the road--so fresh and good! Soft egg on a sausage bagel with fresh 'maters

    Thank you, Brenda! We have a 100 year old farm house and we just renovated the kitchen a couple of years ago. It was hell while we did it, but it was well worth it! I don't know how or why I started cooking the tomatoes down. I don't cook them for very long, but it does get a lot more juice out. I don't think it changes the flavor at all. I add Lawry's salt to them, but have never tried lemon juice! I will add that next time.

    Ok, you forced me into it Veggies I blanch my 'maters in boiling water for a few seconds and then put them in the sink in cold water. It makes the skins slide right off. Then I pile all of the 'maters in pots and let them cook down while my jars are sterilizing in the dishwasher. After everything has cooked down, I strain the juice and put that up, too. Finished product!

    I can tomatoes, primarily. Lots and lots of 'maters! I agree, there is nothing better than standing in my kitchen on a cold day in the dead of winter with a jar of canned tomatoes that I've just cracked open! I also put up a lot of cucumber pickles and baby corn. edited for spelling
  13. My furry babies LOVE my tomatoes, too!

    Dinner! 2007

    I also thought there would be plenty there because of an influx of consumer money, proximity to the beach, and the place's reputation as a golfing destination (I guess my assumption that many people who play golf might also like to dine/eat well=stupid). But unfortunately, the place was full of chain restaurants and the supermarkets were overpriced with very poor products. I even saw imported tiger shrimp in a seafood shop that was less than a block from the beach ( ). Oh well, sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you. ← Yeah, but still a big disappointment. I hope y
  15. OH MY GOSH! You can't get any fresher than that. I have food envy

    Anchovy butter YUM. I would have thought there would be really neat places to eat down there! I'm now crossing Myrtle Beach off my places to visit list.
  17. Oh my! This looks really good! I've never heard of dragonfruit. I'll have to google to see what it tastes like.
