I made homemade granola the other week. I just wish I had more relaxing mornings at home to enjoy it. Why is the weekend a mere 2 days?
I always thought Shipyard Pumpkinhead was my favorite until I had my first go around with Cisco’s Pumple Drumkin. It’s gorgeous, not spicey at all, a bit deeper in flavor and full of pumpkiny goodness.
One of the greatest stories of all time, i.m.h.o., and perfect timing for the Halloween season.

Homemade tortillas, pico de gallo, black beans, and the like; made for Tiffany and Mack, two ladies who really know how to enjoy a quality Mexican feast.
Subversive Cross Stitch, nearly finished.
