I hope you’re all enjoying an extra day off on this Labor Day weekend. Yesterday was a day of constant rain. At the end of the day the sun came out and I was finally able to get out on the porch to take a quick picture.
We ran some errands yesterday, including getting a passport picture of yours truly as I have to renew my passport. I’ll send all of that info tomorrow.
We did get around to making dinner, but very late, because we ate a late lunch when we were out and about. So I wavered about whether to try the Cloud Biscuits or not. I ended up going for it. Don grilled some vegetables on the broiler, aka The Grillevator (yes, that’s the name), which caused our smoke alarm to go off a thousand times until we were finally able to dismantle it. Yikes. The veggies were great, a little more charred than we were aiming for, but the danged smoke alarm kept taking our attention away from the task at hand.
Because I was making the biscuits at night, the photos are pretty bad. Nevertheless, I promised to share them with you, so share them I will.
They were amazingly good. Whether that’s because they are always good or because of Stella, I’m not sure, but they melted in our mouths. Oh, my heavens!
If I was a food blogger, I’d make this in the daytime and take lots of artfully staged photos of them from an overhead perspective. I’m not a food blogger, so this is what you get.
Just trust me: Stella can bake like nobody’s business! Yay!
I finished Sue Grafton’s newest Kinsey Millhone mystery yesterday and I started (barely) Glass Houses by Louise Penny last night. Today? Time outside as it will be the only dry and sunny day this week.
Oh, I have to tell you this! One of the newer readers of this blog mentioned in a comment that she had gone back to read past posts and came upon one where I shared my Christmas Wish List. I had completely forgotten about that list; I described it as a fantasy list. It was posted on December 5, 2012 – nearly five years ago.
On that wish list was a vintage gas stove “preferably O’Keefe and Merritt.” And I used a picture from Country Living of Kitty Bartholemew’s stove, an O’Keefe and Merritt. Here it is:
Except for the part-chrome part-porcelain top (ours is all chrome) this is the exact stove that we ended up buying. The exact stove. I had completely forgotten about this.
Boy, do dreams come true!!
