Happy Birthday TheMan, Here’s My Garden!

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Check it out: TOMATO RIG! TheMan put this beasty together and I loveLoveLOVE it! I could, theoretically, hang 10 tomato plants on it and they wouldn’t be crowded. I only had enough rigging for 5 (are there 5 up there? I can’t remember) seeings as I sort of miscalculated with the carabeaner(?) hook doodads. Apparently, once you slip the hook fella onto the pipes, you can’t open it wide enough to get the bucket handle through. Hence the double hook set up (which you can see…)

The Loser’s Club

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

I think I said a while back that I was going to try and exercise every day in July and you know what? I have! No really, every day I carve out a bit of time wherein I specifically go and ‘do my working out’. So far I haven’t missed one even if a couple have sort of slopped over (technically) into the next day. Go me!

Pony Chops? Noooooooooo!

Aloo Gobi

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

Did you know Aloo Gobi can go whistling down the plains AND be sung to the Christmas Whooville tune? It’s true! Anyhow, this isn’t exactly what I had in Columbus (I Googled potato and cauliflower because we had an awesome potato and cauliflower dish which I wanted to cook. Aloo Gobi came up so off we went to make some in our kitchen. Am I still in a parenthetical phrase here? I am! Sorry that, back to your normal post) but it’s really fun to say. ALOOOOO GOBI! The original site I napped this recipe from is here because it was…tastiest looking? Anyway, Aloo Gobi!

Corn and Green Bell Pepper Curry

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

While surfing for the Indian dishes I had in Columbus, I came across this one and thought I’d add it to the list because it looked tasty. The original recipe lives there.
