At the moment I'm "taking 5." Our house smells like a Maryland crab shack...and that's a good thing from my point of view.

I just finished boiling the potatoes and assembling the remaining ingredients for a big bowl of my Cajun potato salad. Glenn and I are going to a family get-together at his son's house tomorrow and we've promised to bring the potato salad and several dozen ears of corn from the garden.

I sampled the potatoes a few minutes ago and they're appropriately spicy. Nice bite to them. Along with the creole seasoning and the spicy hot mustard, the salad will, as they say here, light you right up. It's always better on its second day, which is why I made it today. Like fine wine, it gets better with age.

Corn has been shucked and cleaned and is in the auxiliary refrigerator awaiting its journey to Kenneth's house tomorrow.

Katie, thanks for the reminder. I copied this recipe last year and forgot about it. I think it's time to make this.

I decided to accomplish something while on vacation, I painted my recently acquired 80's era Kitchenaid mixer. It was a little rough when I got it and I wasn't fond of the almond color, so I decided to give it a paint job. I'm not usually all that crafty and have very little experience with spray paint, But I like how it came out. Here is the mixer before, you can kinda see it behind my trusty 'ol Ultra Power.



Here it is now. I'm going to do a little touch up on it tomorrow, but I'm not going to obsess over it, it's an appliance, not a decoration! I have a new trim ring and cord coming for it tomorrow. I used metallic copper spray paint and it really looks convincing.

I can't wait to read all your posts and get caught up with all things in the world of Shrek and Princess Fiona! Love you guys.
Hiya LP!! Doing great now that I am back online, was starting to get really bored with no cable or Internet. Not enough to do in a small town that rolls up the sidewalks at 8 PM and you have to stay up all night.

Love you too and I'd like to wish you a smooth move.
