  1. Cheerleading buttonbush - cute.

  2. *\0/* Whee!!


    Still ridiculously hot & muggy.

    Still summer.

    If you're interested in filk singing, you should stop by my blog today or tomorrow to read Jim C. Hines' guest post on filker Tom Smith (you could even win a book!)

    Jim is an awesome writer. I adore his Princess series - where he basically takes Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella (and others) and twists the tales, writing the story of what came after...if the girls were kickass heroines. He knows what to do with words. :)

    Beth, I envy you the cooler temps of Idaho! That's one state I've not visited. Hope you're enjoying your time there.

    Happy Tuesday!

  3. Hi, all. Still hot and muggy here.

    Beth, I would love to be in Idaho right now. I wish!

    Happy Tuesday, all.

  4. Science Geek spouse: It's an H2O flower. :)

    Raining after tons of humid weather.

    Got lots planned for weekend coming up. Champion bike racing near our favorite dairy. "Beetle Dromes" :) then on to the Trek in the Park. They're doing Mirror Mirror which is the Evil Spock episode. We've been watching Star Trek Season 1 on Netflix. We're a Star Wars family so this has been a nice change.

    Jim, thanks for that link. I really loved the comments.

    This weekend I made my brilliantly great Beer Battered Onion Rings (Walla Walla Sweets are in season right now) and I didn't have anything to dip them in, not that they need anything. But being a foodie and I really look at and ponder my food... I got an idea.

    The rings batter make them very "sturdy". You can stack these. Stackable has nothing to do with edible. So I though about what could be put on them due to their sturdiness. That's when it hit me. French Onion Soup! One my favorite things I can't eat anymore due to the dairy/cheese on it. On it. So I put parmesan and asiago cheeses on them and let it melt. Family said they were the best rings they'd ever eaten. Try it. I use a flour base batter (smoothe) not a panko base one (gritty).

    Half the batch I cut the rings in half so they were Onion Strips. Cooked more in the fryer and easier to eat the family - aka my guinea pigs - said.

    It looks more and more like Wayne is going to be going to Israel soon. Any ideas on what he can buy and bring home?

  5. Busy day today so just making sure I drop in and say hi to all of you.
