Monday Musings

Look! Look! Look! Something is growing! I believe these are my radishes. I’ve also got some kale and lettuce coming up but some of the other things I planted don’t seem to be doing that well. And some little creature, cat, bird or squirrel comes and digs up my beans once a week. Not. A. Fan. But I suppose that is all part of gardening. Maybe it’s time for me to build some kind of cage over my beds. And by me I totally mean Ryan.

  • I posted a picture awhile back on Facebook showing a pizza I had made for our Friday night pizza nights. While people were interested in the pizza itself, I also got a lot of interest in the handle cover for my cast iron skillet. It was a spur of the moment purchase when we were in Phoenix but it is Le Cruset so you can buy it here. I bought red because my kitchen is red and turquoise but they have some other lovely colors too.
  • Speaking of kitchen utensils and cast iron skillets, what is the one thing you could not live without in your kitchen? Right now it is my Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron skillet that I got for Christmas. I use it for everything. I cook bacon in it. Make grilled cheese sandwiches. Quesadillas. Steaks. Fried chicken. Like I said everything. I pretty much never put it away and it has a permanent spot on my stove.
  • Let’s keep with the kitchenware topic. I am in LOVE with Fiestaware. I have a set of dishes in Scarlet and Turquoise that I got for my birthday and a set of knives in Scarlet that I got for Christmas. A lot of people who use Fiestaware like to use a mix match of colors for their dishes. Kind of a collect them all type of thing. When it comes to your dishes do you prefer to have a whole matching set or like the idea of mix and match?
  • Kellan is saying more and more words each week. His vocabulary is expanding so quickly. It’s time to start watching what we say and I’ve even had to start spelling things so that he doesn’t know what I’m talking about. Like N-E-M-O. One mention of that word and we are sitting down to watch it. Again. Just keep swimming.

    I recently discovered Fiestaware and fell head over heels for it!! A department store called Belk that we have here in the south was having a heck of a sale/deal on it about a month ago. Four piece place setting (dinner plate, salad plate, cereal bowl and mug) for $29.00 AND you got a Gusto Bowl (retails for $15) for only $1! Plus I had a coupon for 30% off your entire purchase, AND the day I went was an additional 10% off on top of everything else, so I bought 4 place settings. I got Scarlet, Peacock, Sunflower and Tangerine. :D :D (I don’t mind having mismatched colors, to answer your question). I was lusting over the plum, but they didn’t have it in stock. So when I got home, I bought two more place settings from Amazon. Got Plum and Lemongrass. Free two day shipping (gotta love Amazon prime.)
