Garden flowers and a test from my phone...

Getting ready for a couple of weeks in Hawaii and thought I might post some photos from there on my blog so testing how to do it from my phone again. Had to edit from the tablet cause I couldn't figure out how to add info from the phone. Gotta relearn how to blog while I travel!

A couple of photos from my garden as I test it out again.

Irises blooming after Andy moved them away from the roses.

An Alton Brown sort of day...

Ok let's face it, we are both Alton Brown's Good Eats junkies! We love the shows, sad that it is no longer being made but thank goodness for reruns! So yesterday it was a little rainy and just the right weather to bring out one of my Christmas presents ...


I gave Andy the book and salt cellar (just like AB uses of course) and he gave me the burr coffee grinder and the popovers tray.

So can you guess which one I used?


Yep! Made popovers! First time in ages!! And maybe the first time with a "proper" popover baking tray!  Used the AB recipe and they turned out great!

I haven't used the burr grinder yet because I was not out of coffee last week, but now I almost am. We got some good beans (Brazilian) from Chocolate Fish the other day, where I might add, Andy had the best mocha he said he has ever had! So I will test out the grinder in a day or two.
