One of the things I like best about my house is the way it looks at night.

Garden in the Grass

I do, after all, have generations of farming in my blood. So, equipped with a plastic sand bucket stuffed with a bundle of dollar store garden tools (our entire budget of $12), plus a weary hand-me-down spade, Chefhusband and I stood upon the earth in the backyard of our first ever rental house. And there, we began to plan our first ever corn patch.

It was easier when I didn’t know the difference between good coffee and bad.

The scene is a charming townhouse bordering a family park. It’s Sunday morning, just before noon, and friends and family are gathered around the table, tuned into CBC Radio. It’s almost time for Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Cafe.

Sticky situation with peanut butter machine

Besides steel-cut oats to make second and third batches of Overnight Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal, the only other item on my grocery list today is freshly-ground honey-roasted peanut butter.

In my recurring nightmare, I’m standing over a garbage can in a restaurant service area, scraping English muffin rinds and congealed Hollandaise sauce onto a heap of pancake and waffle scraps.
