Mother Plant

The weekend has come and gone (Roll Tide!), and while it was fun at an epic level and included special guest appearances from some of my favorite people, I am quite content to look to this week, in which I am eager to accomplish much.

I love reading Heidi Swanson's blog and have it marked in my Google Reader. She presents these really amazing recipes, managing to balance both simple and decadent, and that makes me want to cook!

I think I will try the roasted corn pudding in acorn squash this weekend for a special visiting guest, and embellish with other celebratory notes: birthdays don't happen ever day do they?

Earlier this summer my amazing purple petunias gave up the ghost, victims of our record-high June heat wave. I pulled up their withered remains and left the coconut fiber hanging pots in place, anticipating the addition of another summer annual. The reemergence of the petunias a month or so later was fascinating, as the leaves had a succulent quality, and I decided to see what would transpire in this incarnation. A much different appearance altogether, they bloom in the day and tend to close at night. I'm not sure how long they will last, but I'm willing to let them go on as long as they choose.

How in the world could an Auburn person EVER utter those two disgusting words you put in your post?

Wish I could have been in Toothalootha this weekend. Maybe next time!
