Estate Sale + Binge

I’ve been having some tech problems lately…so posting has been a bit like this….

Via Market Like a Chick


To quote my new best friend Lance at the Genius Bar, I need a “bigger house” since I’ve outgrown mine.  New hard drive and RAM are on the way and, fingers crossed, I should be back in bidness.

As I was feeling very frustrated, and a tiny bit sad that summer is over, I did what all normal people do.  Excercise, Mediate, Garden Fry up something that will likely kill me.  Isn’t that how everyone rolls?  No?!  Hunh.

It’s probably been 5 years since I ate one of these things, but when you get that wild haired craving, sometimes you just have to give in.

We made a freaking onion blossom….and it was delicious in all its greasy glory.

We followed this recipe pretty closely and it came out great. We opted for a chipotle sauce rather than a ranch style one.  The Things, who are normally onion averse, loved it and demanded we make it more often.  The old batter and fry trick works every time.

After recovering from greasapalooza, I hit an estate sale and found this little bit of fun….


I’m trying to decide what to name it…Crazy Clara (clarinet), or perhaps (H)oboe?  This abstract reed instrument seems to need a name….we must think….

    That, my dear, is a Sex-ophone. Soprano. LOVE:)

    And I can totally relate to your posting problems, as I am having the same! I’d love to know how the fixing goes (and if you don’t mind sharing the cost) because my mac is prehistoric, and I can’t afford a new model…

    Tech-Happy to share…I got a 2.5″ SATA drive for $49.99 and (2) 2G RAM which is also $49.99. I have a 3 year old MacBook and spending $100 to make it shine seemed worth the alternative…which isn’t really an alternative right now! I’ll update when I install that stuff…I’ve been watching You Tube videos to show me how to NOT ruin my computer…

    OK, here’s my theory on the blooming onion thing. Pretty sure I read or hear or made up the idea that Onions are good for your heart. Fried is…well, bad for your heart, right? Zip Bang, they cancel each other out. Cheers!!!
