Time to dry those herbs--it's been a good summer for growing and I've got pineapple mint (which really does smell like pineapple), tarragon (LOVE that stuff) and sage hanging here.
One of the kids has a friend whose mother's name is Cinnamon. Isn't that lovely? I don't even know the woman but the name says it all. If I were going to name my kids after herbs and spices then Grace would be Anise, Spencer would be Coriander, David would be Turmeric and Lillian would be Nutmeg. Of course you could always go with plain old Rosemary and Ginger I suppose but who would want to be plain?
I think I'd want to be Saffron. Yes, Saffron please, from now on.
And a few other things . . .
First, Stephanie from Metropolitan Mama has written an ebook, Bloggertunity: A Mom's Guide to Blogging which gives you instructions on setting up your own blog. I've met Stephanie and she's a wonderful person who gives her best to blogging so it's worth a peek to see what she has to say.
Second, Susan from Foodblogga has been kind enough to ask me a few questions which she's posted in a very thorough interview. Things you may already know about me but then again, maybe there are a few surprises.
And finally here are some really REALLY good links.
- Random questions from 25-35 olds. Think of them as Deep Thoughts for Generation X.
- How to Turn a Cheap Cut of Meat into Choice Steak by Steamy Kitchen--I think I'll try this thank you.
- How to Make a Custom Twitter Background. VERY helpful.
- Cheesy Garlic Biscuits a la Red Lobster. YUM.
- Apple and Pear Coffee Cake with Brioche from my best friends at Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day
- Five Ways We Teach Our Children to Be Picky Eaters and How to Fix It by Healthy Green Moms. I think this can also be applied to husbands as well.
