Life is so interesting these days…and so is the food that we’ve been eating. More on that (and the delectable dish you see above) at the end of this post…
But first, I’d like to give you an update on some of the lovely people who advertise with me!
Heritage Gallery Outdoor Art // Marian says, “When possible, I love to get out in the field and do plein air painting, trying to capture the lighting and true colors. I am a grandmother with 8 lovely grandchildren and I enjoy teaching them and others to paint as well.” In the collage above, you can see a picture of a children’s art class Marian taught this summer! Click here to see examples of Marian’s lovely artwork on durable outdoor plaques like the one you see in the bottom left of the collage!
Ruth Visser, Lilla Rose consultant // Ruth says, “Do you like to do hair? Maybe you consider yourself to be ‘hair challenged’. Flexi clips are the perfect answer either way! They are easy to use and come in 7 different sizes in order to fit any style or thickness of hair. They hold baby-fine, slippery hair right up to thick, textured hair. If you would like to join Lilla Rose and share hair accessories with others while earning some extra income, there is a great special going on right now! All enrollment kits will get free shipping through July 31st. So whether you just want to host a few style boutiques for your friends or are interested in a full-fledged business, this is a great time to start! For more information on what a $49 enrollment kit comes with, you can see my brief YouTube video here.” Click here to shop for Lilla Rose products or contact Ruth about becoming a consultant yourself!
So…we went fishing as a family the other day. We caught enough fish for one good meal, and I actually helped filet them (thanks to my dad’s expert instruction)! My sister Katelyn, ever the adventurous eater, decided she wanted to try fish eyes, so she painstakingly cut the eyeballs out of all the fish. This disturbing container of fish eyes swimming in slimy gook took up residence on the top shelf of our refrigerator for a day. At one point I forgot it was in there and was taken aback when I was browsing the fridge and caught something staring at me.
Unfortunately Katelyn decided to fry up these eyeballs while I was taking my Sunday afternoon nap, so I didn’t get to partake. She did take a picture of her concoction, though (below). The purple cast comes from the blueberries she added to her fish eye stirfry. According to Kate, the eyeballs were good, albeit overcooked.
PS – this week has been crazy, and it looks like next week will be the same. I talked to my cookbook printer on Monday and we have decided that I should try to get all of my 375ish cookbook recipes typed into the printer’s database and approve the design proofs by next Friday. And I’m headed to Lancaster for a singing tour the following Thursday and will be gone for 3-4 weeks total gallivanting off in several different directions. I kind of have a lot of stuff to do, so if this blog is silent next week, you’ll know why. This cookbook is taking top priority, and the music for my singing tour is a close second. Ain’t life great? 😉 Once things slow down a little, I can’t wait to write some more relaxed posts about how everything goes! Thanks for all your support!
