Twenty of #2 tomatoes at the U_Disitrict"s Farmer's Market......the ones they banish to the back corner of the booth, waiting for you to come pick through them...some are overripe, some have deep cracks, and some just aren't gorgeous enough to earn a place on the display table. Thankfully, some plans I made for this evening fell through, and the boyfriend is in Dallas for the weekend, so I get to stay home and roast my friends for winter storage in my freezer.
I also bought 2# of raw peanuts in the shell to BOIL, Mississippi style. What I did NOT know is that this will take at least 4 HOURS!!!!
Guess I'll be up 'til midnight...........

This is Anna, my dear old friend Lori Haff's child. Lori is one of the sweetest, most genuine people you will ever meet in your life. Anna, however, has a bit of the devil in her, most likely procured from the seed of Gino, Lori's husbund. Don't let this face fool you. As you read this, she just might be rifling through your bag and stealing lipstick and licorice.

A solo afternoon in Fremont took me to The Royal Grinders for Gelato once again.
This time I decided on Pumpkin Pie with a Hazelnut Lenny Scoop (the little scoop on top that acts as a cherry, but better.)
I wished I had gotten the reverse flavor combo. Visit them here:

I love this!!!! I am always looking at things in the world around me and describing them in my mind in "Crayola"
Burnt Sienna, Periwinkle, Sea Green, and of the ever perplexing "Green/Blue or Blue/Green" debate. it always bothered me that the "Blue/Green" crayon was more green, and the "Green/Blue" was more blue.
BUT.....WTF? They changed half of the color names!!! I still scored a 33 - beat that!
