Have a little problem . . . Looking for Patricia!
Patricia’s recipe box is all ready to go. I played with it some more, added a few more little items, wrote a card, decorated the envelope, but guess what, the email I sent to her came back as undeliverable. I left a reply next to her comment to tell her, but so far, I haven’t heard from her again. I know pretty soon she will start wondering if this was all a figment of her imagination ♥ and come back here to check.
And this is to her when she does: Hi Patricia! Could you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me where to send your box? ♫ Thank youuuuuu! ♪ FOUND HER! ♫
I’ve planned a fun new post for tomorrow when Willard starts going out, so I wasn’t really going to do one today; but I do want to find Patricia, so, while I’m here, I might as well show you the gorgeous flowers we found at Farmer’s Market on Saturday! Wasn’t it a beautiful weekend?! Seems like everyone was doing something fallish, pumpkin hunting, corn maze playing, or Molasses Cookie baking. We drove around the island, leaves flying at our windshield, with Humphrey’s Bakery coffee and donuts in front of us in the van, stopping here and there; we got our pumpkins for the porch; went to a nursery to get bulbs (never grew those giant purple alliums, but we are trying a few this year).
Our Farmer’s Market had a bumper crop of potatoes in every color, shape, and form! We bought these baby sweet potatoes; cooked them with pork roast and cranberry sauce last night for dinner — I spread them on a baking sheet, left them in their skins, drizzled and tossed them with olive oil, ground over pepper and salt, and roasted them at 400° for about 25 min. Mmmm, they were so good! Crunchy with the skins on; and soft and melty in the middle.
OK girls, I’m off, and setting you free; we can all go back to work! Be sure to come back tomorrow, because there is still another surprise! I can’t help it! I found something wonderful on my trip, something I couldn’t resist even though I already have one, and so . . . guess who will be getting it? ♥
My focus today (and every day from now on!) is on finishing my new book. I’m painting like crazy and loving the whole experience of the blank white page that I get to DO things to :-). It’s coming together, the recipes are so delicious! I made an amazing coffee cake this morning . . . so dangerous. I have to stop eating it ALL and get back to the idea of TASTING. This is not an easy job. ♥ Mañana, girlfriends. xoxo
If you see Patricia, tell her I’m looking for her! ♫ WE GOT HER! Thank you! ♪
