because there's been bisquing but no glazing this week! I had such good intentions to get a pile of glazing done and another firing today but alas, it was not to be. So instead of beady items I bring you...VEGGIES!! I realize that most people would not be as excited about this as I am today but just bear with me. A few weeks ago we watched Food Inc... now, if you do not want to totally change your eating habits I would strongly advise staying at least 10 feet away from the unopened DVD case/book, I don't think it can infiltrate your brain from that distance. However, I made the "mistake" of watching the video and promptly made the decision to go organic in as many ways possible...oh, including no more grocery store meat. So, we joined a CSA (community supported agriculture) group for fruit and veg and next week we're jumping on the meat CSA bandwagon. Today we picked up our first box of farm goodies...kale, broccolini, kumquats, tangelos, spinach, dates, red leaf lettuce, grapefruit, bacon avocados, apples, oranges, elephant garlic, spinach and some purply carrots. It's actually a fun challenge when you see what's in your box and you have to come up with ways to use all those items over the course of the week, even the items you've never heard of before!Moving on from veggies...I promised a pic of the newest addition to my flock...I picked him up in Palm Springs last weekend. I'm still working on a name for him :) While I was at it I figured I might as well show you some of the others in the family.
The raku quail... and the quackers! Now I must return to the kitchen to put the final layer on a pan of Nanaimo Bars in support of the Canadian Olympic Hockey team's game this afternoon.
