On Friday morning, a mysterious package arrived at my door. A cryptic return address, something oddly shaped inside, handwriting I didn't recognize... what could it be?
A #12 Melon Baller -- that's what!!! One of you fabulous people sent ME a #12 melon baller. As you may recall, I was supposed to use one here, but didn't have one. I also was supposed to use one here, but again, was too lazy to go out and buy one.
And now, one of you lovely lovely awesome amazing super fantastic people took the time to go out and buy a #12 melon baller, wrapped it up with a nice little hello, trudged to the post office, waited in line, and sent it to me. That is so cool, it's beyond cool. Whoever it is -- I wish you had told me who you were, so I could write a thank-you note. But since, I can't do that, I offer my thanks in a different way:
And because I am a huge nerd, I used foods whose starting letters correspond with each letter of the word "Thanks." The "T" is tomatillo -- anyone want to guess what the other letters are made of?
I'll be back later this weekend with the Halibut post. Work got in the way of having a life this week. I need to do one or two mindless things to unwind and get back into "normal" mode (whatever that is), and I'll thankfully spend most of tomorrow cooking! See you in a few...
