It's always about the first sentence and how impossible it is to narrow the field of life to a simple opening line.
I took lots of pictures hoping for that 'perfect wave' shot.
T and the dog laughed at me and kept walking.
It still gave me a lot of pleasure TRYING....
As T has spent the bulk of the last 10 years here in Corfu honing his skills at making the perfect margarita, it was important for scientific reasons to continue to experiment.
Yesterday, I became convinced that he had attained his goal!
(Of course, in order for things to be scientific, that should mean there's a need for comparison and lots more
And so, not wanting to tempt the recent (and fairly successful)local police breathalyzer trap, we had a quiet evening at home. I fixed a batch of Shredded BBQ beef and we ladled it over some mashed potatoes. T fixed a salad and a fine "comfort food" meal was had by all.
This morning I woke up in time to catch the moon set. Sun and moon were just in synch- as the moon disappeared the sun rose. Lovely sky colors in both the east AND the west.
[I might mention, no hangover was involved in the taking of these pictures...]
Today I dabbled in baking. I put together a really good "first try" for an excellent cornbread with chili and whole kernel corn. Sometimes I just have a yen for a certain taste, but of course no access to the ingredients! So I make due and this time the flavors seemed to work. I will post the recipe, and pics after I do a little more fine tuning.
I also made my first ever Ciabatta or Italian "slipper bread". As it's cooling on the counter, I have no idea what it tastes like, so perhaps tomorrow I'll post the recipe... unless it tastes really awful. Then I won't.
