We had another vitrigraph pull this week … We’ve got a nice variety of cane going – while we continue to learn what to do and what not to do! Now, if SOMEONE would just finish making my cane-chopper!
I played with a few recipes, too. We made tahini – which gives our 25+ year old food processor a big work out! [Wedding gift!] We used the tahini for our first batch of hummus. Yum! THEN, this city girl cooked beets for the first time. Wow! I screamed a bit when I pulled the pan out of the oven and unwrapped them from their aluminum foil cocoons – as the splatter/spray of red hit … creating a ‘crime scene’ look to my stove top and walls! But, I love the beet hummus we made! Next up, I’ll be cooking eggplant to try my hand at Baba Ganoush!!! (Oh, yeah – DH is nervous!) To keep the less-adventurous members of my family happy, I made a pot of Sausage Bean soup …
Coming up: I’m slowly gearing up to try a kiln-combing. So, I bought ‘full arm’ leather/welding gloves. Combined with my leather apron and DH’s face shield – I should be (kiln) safe and quite sexy! [Don’t look for modeling photos any time soon!]
WWU: My elbow is still on the mend – she lets me know when I’ve pushed too hard, or I’ve reached the end of a 12 hour ER shift … My coworkers are taking it easy on me, letting me spend time in triage. So, I’ll leave with this advice: If you feel compelled to ask your triage nurse three (or more) times ‘if you should just go home’ [without being seen], maybe you should listen to your inner voice … [#whyareyouhere, #shortestERvisitever]
