Wanna come up to my place and look at my floor?
Yes, he’s still working on that boring old floor…..
But, see that little strip going into the corner?
That’s the only piece left to be fit in.
You surely didn’t think this house was square, did you? We’re frankly amazed that the room wasn’t more crooked.
You also didn’t think I was going to tidy it to take the photos…..
Because of all that lovely insulation this is now the warmest room in the house.
Mon mari plans to use it to stain and varnish the, roughly, 50 pieces of trim he has to make to finish.
If you really want more photos I have updated the photo albums for the house…. Link in the sidebar.
I you are just looking for an easy winter vegetable, try these.
3 – 4 sunchokes, aka Jerusalem artichokes
2 tbs olive oil
Put olive oil in a bowl. Peel sunchokes, keping the peeled sunchokes in a bowl of water as you work as they discolor quickly. Cut each sunchoke into 1/4 inch thick slices. Add slices to oil as you work, coating well. Lay on a nonstick baking sheet (if you have one – just makes it easier) with a lip. Put in a 400F (200C) oven and bake for 30 minutes. Remove, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve.
Note: These do not get crispy, but meltingly soft. Remove from baking sheet carefully to maintain their shape.
In case you don’t know what to look for here’s a photo:
