Dim Sum Sunday ~ Making Mole Poblano

For this week's Dim Sum Sunday theme of Chile Peppers, we thought we would cook up some yummy mole sauce.

This was a very time consuming recipe, (definitely not something you should start at 4 in the afternoon, when you decide that the recipe you had picked out, seems lame) with a whole lot of steps and ingredients, but all the work is worth it. The end result is a yummy complex taste. Spicy, but with a underlying sweetness from the chocolate.

Head on over to the Karmic Kitchen for some more fun with Chile Peppers.

Dim Sum Sunday ~ Creepcakes

For this week's Dim Sum Sunday, Shamu wanted us to bring out our favorite hors d'oeuvres, or special Halloween snacks. And for my little girl this means making some creepy cupcakes.

A little icing tint, an assortment of eyeballs, teeth and tongues and you've got yourself a fun time in the kitchen.

This is also a perfect rainy day activity to keep the kids busy.

For more snack fun head over to the Karmic Kitchen.

Thanks Shamu for another fun DSS!

Must You Torment the Chickens?

(bad shaky arms.....not the best thing to have when you're shooting video.)

I was hangin' out in our screen porch yesterday, when the hawk made a dive into the chicken coop. As you can hear, the chickens were just a tad upset. ;)

Getting the Garden Going

Over the weekend, Hubs worked in the garden emptying the compost bins and building me a new raised bed.

Not the most pleasant of tasks right now, considering it's like a million stinkin' degrees outside!

But in the end, I got a brand new raised bed (you ROCK Hon!) filled with FREE compost.


I can't wait till my seed order comes in, and I can get out there and start planting for the fall!
