(Warning to people like Mr. RWP......recipe to follow.......)
The first time I tasted Pesto, I thought it revolting. Perhaps it is an acquired taste. If so, I have acquired it!
Like harvesting our onions and garlic. Food without onions & garlic is bland and boring. Unless it's chocolate. Or coffee.
(Mr. RWP, at least it was a QUICK recipe, yes??)
I made tags, printed out graphics, gathered up Fair entries, made three pizzas, two batches of salisbury steaks, 24 hamburger patties and three loaves of pumpkin bread for the freezer for the days I'm off to the fairgrounds.
I should have cleaned rabbit pans and watered the raspberries & strawberries, but I got tired. When I get too tired, I get silly. I remembered one of my favorite parts of the book The Blue Castle by Lucy Maude Montgomery....
Aunt Alberta, to save her dinner, plunged into an account of how a dog had bitten her recently. Uncle James, to back her up, asked where the dog had bitten her. "Just a little below the Catholic church," said Aunt Alberta. At that point Valancy laughed. Nobody else laughed. What was there to laugh at? "Is that a vital part?" asked Valancy. "What do you mean?" said bewildered Aunt Alberta, and Mrs. Frederick was almost driven to believe that she had served God all her years for naught.
Did I mention I was tired?
We've spent two days at the Fair now - Check In Day, Judgement Day are over.
Tomorrow we get chores done, load the truck and head back again to Decorate. That
actually means artfully arranging all the entries so that when the fairgoers come
next week, they will be able to see & enjoy all the wonderful entries - Quilts,
table runners, afghans, tablecloths, knitted sweaters, embroidered pillows,
canned beef, chocolate chip cookies.....well, you know.
Off I go, tomorrow is a long long day. Be sure to come see the Living Arts building
August 13-19th at the Southwest Washington Fair!!!
