Taking center Spring stage...
A simple spring hue tissue wrap. Less is more.
Thoughts of basil seedlings and grilling.
By the way, we picked out a new charcoal grill and I cooked a ham for Easter. The technique is intriguing and has my mind spinning with all kinds of meaty recipes.
Prepare the grill with a pile of charcoal. Allow the coals to simmer until white. On the opposite side of the grill, away from the fire, that's where you place your meat. My grill stays on about 350 degrees. I placed the ham in a pan of apple juice and then dabbed it with a mixture of soy sauce and apricot preserves. I added a few pieces of apple wood. You can place the wood pieces in a pocket of foil and then slit the foil a few times so that the smoke can escape and work its way into your meat. No need for a fancy smoker when you have a charcoal grill. Who knew? I'm digging it!
Changing the subject...
Saturday was hand made coin purse day! At my shop, anyway. Those little puppies were flying out the door faster than I could flip stitch them!
