I AM SO BUSTED

Long ago and far away I said I never wanted a microwave - they were a fad and they took up so much space - - - well once it came into my life it has stayed and been a very useful tool that I use about everyday...


Well with the completion of the deck I was asked if I wanted a grill - - - no I said - - - and was reminded of the microwave incident by a child or two - and then thought about it and agreed as long as it was propane and not charcoal...


Well I have only used the oven to bake cookies since the arrival of the grill. I cook EVERYTHING on the grill. This includes stuffed peppers the other night that I individually wrapped in foil and baked them! They were most nummy. I also steam vegetables and have even cooked fish in foil. Fast and easy and it keeps the house cooler...


So I am soooooooooo sorry for refusing the grill at first and I soooooooo love cooking on it - new adventures every night...


On to garden matters: Deer have had roses and Rose of Sharon for breakfast this week. The tomatoes are growing fine. The daylillies are fine because I park my car near them to protect them. The finches amaze me everyday. Last night hummingbirds were zooming around the yard like crazy.


Tomorrow I will have sock and blank wall pictures - er' not so blank wall pictures.


The collection of siblings are together for the Harry Potter festival in Irving Park IL. I wish them a good time and safe travels...

Do you play the Kevin Bacon game?

I feel the same way about our grill. It sits on our (covered) porch, so I've even been known to use it in the dead of winter.

Enjoy.

Irving Park, Illinois?

Irving Park's a street that goes through many towns, including Chicago. But I never heard of a town of Irving Park.

And, sure, I play the Kevin Bacon game. But it usually doesn't take me anywhere....
