Biscuits, Jalapenos and More

Thanks to our CSA I have had more corn and peaches than I would ever want in a lifetime. That being said, I am about to roast some corn in the husk along with my three beets. No one but me eats beets and I figured why not roast them together and then, when done, I can eat them as is or mix them up in a salad.
One of the few things that did well in my garden this year was my jalapeno plant. Go figure. I have five of them sitting in front of me and so a search was on for a recipe. First one I found was a great sounding pickling recipe on Simply Scratch, but my lack of the necessary 15 jalapenos lead me to search for something else. I am going to be making a lentil soup tonight for dinner, fall is officially here in NJ, and when I saw a cheddar jalapeno biscuit recipe on Simply Recipes and was sold. I do not have cream so I am going to add butter in its place, there were some notes in the comments, and honey instead of sugar. Let us hope it comes out delish!

Survival Life blog has what seems like a pretty interesting antiseptic ointment and best part is it is DIY.

Purl Bee has this pretty Laura's Loop: Color Tipped Scarf pattern.

On Gardenista I read this about this natural remedy for cold and flu season and quite frankly, I think it could kill anything, including Satan himself.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

A Good Book Here, A Good Book There

Took a hiatus. Yeah, I am sure you all noticed. Been trying to get things moving along and with that I had to slack and so I slacked on the blog. Now allow me to share our little artificial tree that our son and his grandma decorated with glee.

In the last two months or so, I no longer bring my computer upstairs. Instead I have started to read at night. While this may not sound like any big deal, it is a little for me. I love to read, but due to school, home, obligations, and writing a novel, I somehow pushed reading an actual book to the side.  Like a lot of folks I got more caught up in the rabbit hole of the internet. Now, I do love getting sucked down various rabbit holes, but I also felt that I needed to actually unplug.
Allow me to sidebar a bit here.

I had been struggling with my book for a very long time. In the last 6 months or so it got worse. I had lost the true nature of the story and could no longer hear the character voice. I am not the first writer this has happened to…
