Random 5 Friday
1. A secret: I love the holidays. I always go all out, and make the house feel festive and warm or spooky, whatever the case may be. We participate fully in the event, suspending our disbelief wherever possible. But when it's over...it's over. Halloween came down first thing this morning before work, and what remains is the harvest decor that will last through Thanksgiving.
2. Finally: After two full weeks of battling the funk I finally get to meet our latest little tastebud today!
3. Oh Poo!: One of our tasks this weekend is to give the hen house a thorough once over and freshly bed the ladies down for the winter. Fun stuff. Ha! At least the compost pile will be happy!
4. Cured: We cut into our homemade pancetta last night to give it a taste. Oh my! All I can say is there is more curing in our future!
5. Treats: These bar cookies are to. die. for. I am always amazed at how some things that I imagine are difficult simply are not. Take the ten minutes to make the homemade salted caramel for this one! Happy weekend!
