Mom's Day Sale this week!

Just a short post today since I should really be finishing everything for the sale tonight. Here are a few of the things that will be included, a link to a quaint little playlist of songs used in a cooking show I just recently discovered ( I love it so so much!) and an interesting article on the seriously labor-intensive process that the Japanese grow -and sometimes brand- their apples! Amazing!

See at the Sale! :)

Foodie magnets

Hi! How long has it been since my last post? I know, I promised to be a good girl and update my blog more often, but it's really been scorching here. During the day I can't make myself sit in front of the computer and type. Come to think of it, I find it hard to even think. And at night it feels so sticky and stuffy that I want to shower, and after I shower I get this uncontrollable urge to lie down and sleep, lol

Anyway, I made 3 more magnets end of last month, and i threw in some new yummy letters to the mix.

The "i" I made to look like our native tsokolate. They look a lot like hockey pucks, really, and the way you use it is you put it in really hot water or milk and stir until melts and then you drink it. It has a sandy, gritty texture which is characteristic of this drink, and it goes really really really great with  ensaymada, a local bread (with a spanish influence maybe?) with butter and cheese on top. Churros would probably be good too.

I also added a tart in…

Food! What else is there?

It's been a veeery slow couple of weeks for me. The hours seemed to crawl at a glacial pace, and yet in the blink of an eye another week has come and gone and I was still nurturing the couch potato that is me.

Thing is, I've made a few shop announcements that I was back and ready to go to work in my studio table, and yet I find myself constantly drawn from it. The mojo is not there. I've made so little and the little I've made were a tad below my personal standards. I'm feeling sheepish, and kinda iffy about risking another shout out to advertise another false start, then I  say myself I have to start somewhere. Maybe this time I'll just slide into things and see how things go from there. Right now I'm feeling pretty okay. Just the other day I walked my 2 dogs, and the day after that I walked with my sister--no, she wasn't on a leash. she's a pretty good girl! And today when I made my doggies' food, I decided to shake things up and make meatbal…

Cooking for loved ones

Happy post, post Valentine's, everyone! It's a weekend and I'm hoping to get a lot done. 
A lot of sleeping, that is. I've been feeling a bit melancholy these past few days, and I kept thinking about Hobbes. I miss him. Ten days from now it will be 2 months since he passed and I still miss him. I've known him for so long sometimes I catch myself wondering how is it that he's really gone, but he is. 

About 3 years ago one of our dogs, George, got sick and died. During his treatment, we went to several doctors, went through bags of medications and struggled to feed him. Eventually, his kidneys failed and we had to let him go to end his suffering. I read a lot and learned a lot from articles during this time, about how to treat dogs with compromised kidneys, or other organs for that matter. I also stopped going to a particular overcharging vet. Since then, I've been careful about what I feed my dogs. Back then, we would've just bought regular old dog food a…
