A burst of flavor and a new BFF
We really need that cold weather in order for the trees to think, "hey, man it is fall....".
Soon- very soon.
Before we left I had picked some of the Basil that was just hanging on.
I have been grabbing handfuls when I need some but it will not last forever.
It was time to take some in and put it away for that fresh burst of flavor.
I have made pesto many times, but I now like to just chop the Basil and add nothing but olive oil.
Then freeze in TBS.- then when you need some in your sauce or to just brighten ( see I watch and learn from the cooking shows)a soup-just toss one in at the last minute.
All the blah,blah was just to keep you interested.
The tea bowls were a gift from Hollis.
He was kind and generous to bring one for me and one for Mark.
That is one smart man because who wants to watch two potters arm wrestle or have a big old fat smack down over who gets to use the tea bowl.
We both picked one and mine is perfect.
Now, I am hand washing this guy daily so I can use him daily.
My new BFF.
But Mark walks in the other night to pour a glass of wine and says, "I think you have my tea bowl."
"What??!!" I say as I am chopping veggies with a very sharp knife.
Yes- he thinks I have nabbed his tea bowl.
Now you would think we would be happy with either, which we would, but the reason we have been married FOREVER is we leave each others stuff alone.
Now here is where things could have gone ugly.
But instead I took my tea bowl and turned it to him and said, "do you see that little green glass drip there?"
"Yes", he said.
"This is my tea bowl, I claimed that drip".
Enough said- but I am keeping my eye on him.
