Keely. Random. Now!
This is my haul from the farmers market. I've numbered each thing (I'm not anal and food obsessed, sort of) but the numbers are so small I'm not sure you can see them. So if you squint real hard....
1. 3 different types of summer squash. (I've used most of these)
2. Patty pan squash. (roasted tomorrow for pizza with the leftovers for other equally yummy things)
3. baby beets. (roasted for pizza)
4. Grape tomatoes (pizza again)
5. Green beans (last night's dinner)
6. Chicken eggs (frittata and breakfast)
7. Duck eggs (breakfast this week with last night's mushroom ragout)
8. Tomatoes (general eating)
9. Jalapeno goat cheese (sprinkled on pizza after it is done cooking)
10. Baby and Japenese eggplant (stuffed on Thursday)
11 & 12. Assorted peppers (stuffed, roasted and general eating)
13. Peaches (baked in puff pastry)
14. Oyster mushrooms (last night's ragout)
15. Butternut squash (not sure but I'm thinking ravioli)
16. Sweet onions (general eating)
Now, my sweets your days are numbered. Mahahahahaha... Days are numbered, get it? Numbered.....I crack myself up.
The view from the Oasis restaurant at Lake Travis. JR and I sat outside, had a drink and chatted. Our topic of conversation was my NEED for one of these:
War Time Cook and Health
The Dirty Dog tavern sign on 6th Street. This is about as classy as 6th Street gets.

I was feeling pretty smug about my personal sense of style until I recalled this photo. That goofy looking dork wearing a hat but no shoes is me. To see where I got my fashion sense just take a gander at the woman up front with the huge sunglasses and high-water pants. That would be my mother. My dad is not in this photo but trust me when I say, he was equally fashion backward.
I dare you to come up with a photo of yourself at the cocky age of 15. I bet my dorky trumps your dorky.
