i must say, i had a pretty good weekend. aside from the fact that the chickens decimated my kale and i need to get some wattle fence up this week before i let them free-range again. who wants to come over and help?!?
we went to the fleamarket on sunday and i found some things pictured above:
materials for a couple bags for the shop, a large picture of a large woman, that leather hat which i am so in love with i had to stop myself from making out with it (peter says all i need is a few less teeth and a banjo in order to wear it. we have the banjo but i'm not willing to give up any teeth), plus a small primitive coat-rack (child-sized) for craft fair display.
i also went over to my mum's and picked some berries. then i made some crock pot steel cut oats to put the berries in. this is good stuff. i recommend you try it. i first found a recipe on amy's blog here. i don't add any sweetener or anything to cook it in though. i do, however, add copious amounts of maple syrup to it once it's done.
here's the recipe i use:
1 cup steel cut oats (find these in the bulk bin aisle of your natural foods store)
4 1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
cook in crockpot for 8 hours-ish on low setting
and later today i will scan in some of my favorite images from the 70s classic book "woodstock handmade homes." i found a copy this weekend at my local used book store.
