Not much going on here besides coughing and sneezing! It has been quite the allergy season! Millions of us allergy sufferers are having a rough go.
I eagerly await the end of the pollen invasion to end. Everyday I wash off my car, and the next morning, it is green again! I can’t set up the porch till it is over, or I would have to rewash everything, and doing it once is enough for me.
A few years ago a neighbor was having a yard sale for the Leukemia Foundation. I donated my white porch wicker, figuring I would replace it.
I didn’t realize how hard it would be! It seems the synthetic wicker has taken over, and I didn’t want that.
So far I have found this…
Two of these, one last Sept. and one last month. Amazing they are exactly alike! I haven’t brought out the right cushions for them yet.
Last week while I was sick, I was looking on Craig’s list. Someone was selling this.
It was over an hour away, and by the time I got there Fri., someone had left a deposit.
I was able to talk the person into selling me this rocker and ottoman.
$100! I paid more than that for the others, and they needed work!
I had to console myself with that at least I got something!
It is in mint condition, and so comfortable!
I wanted to take part in Michael Lee’s Mystery Ingredient Challenge at Rattlebridge Farm. Chipotle! Me? I was very leery. I am not a “hot stuff” person, you know, Irish, no spicy foods, please.
So, here is my wimpy contribution.
Boneless grilled pork chop with a fresh peach , chipotle compote.
It was good, but I don’t think I would use it again. It definitely had a kick to it, even though I tried to tone it down with apricot brandy and some oj.
I just cut up some fresh peaches, sauteed them in butter and cinnamon sugar, added chipotle sauce , apricot brandy and oj. Reduced it then topped the grilled pork chop with it.
The June Tablescape Challenge is…
Let’s see where you go with that! No formal china, let’s have fun with this SUMMERY theme. The date is WED. JUNE 18th!
Thanks for stopping by!
