I hate it when I lose my posts!
I had it all done, I hit ‘save’ and it disappeared.
It was time to make dinner so here I am, doing a repeat with my morning coffee.
Oh well…. Probably wasn’t interesting anyway. (I believe that’s referred to as ‘Sour Grapes Rationalization’ if I recall my Psych 101 class correctly… And, … Continue reading.....
Yes, I’m still playing with food.
I’m also trying to catch up on all the photos I took in the last few months that have been languishing in the ‘to be posted’ folder.
I decided I should make a clean start with the new year – as soon as I clean up the old folders, that is.
This was good…. … Continue reading.....
I had phyllo left after my last adventure with Herb and Zucchini Phyllo Pies.
Naturally, I still have zucchini.
So I decided to give it another try.
I made this batch a little more substantial – just because.
Preparation and cooking time: 20 minutes

So I modified it ever so slightly.
I was a little concerned that … Continue reading.....
We're perilously close to having another room done.
All that's left is the trim (always the trim) around the floor and window.
The hall is next in line to be finished.
And part of finishing the hall is to build book cases lining one wall.
When the book cases are done…..
I can, finally, unpack the rest … Continue reading.....
One more holiday weekend….
Eat, Drink and be Merry, for tomorrow we may diet!
You might find one or all of these small bites I made useful for a New Year's party.
Our neighbor hosted a small Christmas dinner party, for those of us, who, like themselves, were having a quiet Christmas.
She made the main course, another guest made … Continue reading.....
I'm trying to tidy my desktops – both the one that sits on my computer and the one that my computer sits on.
Never an easy task.
The puppies have been taking all of my time lately, and things have rather piled up.
The vet cleared Bonnie for serious play this morning and I can now throw them outside without … Continue reading.....
My first introduction to phyllo dough was Baklava.
It's still, IMHO, the best possible use for it, even if it's so sweet it makes my teeth hurt and I can only tolerate a piece once a year….. It's still a D.O. (Digestive Org*sm).
I would never, ever consider making Baklava. The only possible way would be if I could figure … Continue reading.....
