pasta maker

measuring, mixing, cooking and cranking, an home schooling exercise in progress. tristan has taken to reading over my shoulder as i type. yesterday he read almost a complete sentence--i type slowly.

dinner tonight will include pico de gallo. i made it from warm fresh tomatoes and peppers. the onions were house temperature, air conditioned. tomatoes that have never been colder than 50 degrees have a special flavor that cannot be replicated. we dwell in this 51 to 104 degree tomato world all summer--what a wonderful place.

i plan a seed saving post very soon. i have been saving tomato seeds from all of our varieties with great care and affection. we will have a wonderful variety of seeds for next years seedlings.

I am so glad that you're going to write about seed saving. That is something that interests me and I have no idea how to begin. My grandmother always saved her seed from year to year but she's gone now and I have no one to ask for advice. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us.

About a year or so ago you wrote an entry about a neti pot and Tabitha's special "brew" for it. Could you or Tabitha share that info with us?? I have found a neti pot at our local health food store and it just suggests salt water to be used in it but with my allergies and sinus trouble, I feel I need a little more "oomph".

Thank you.

I have the same pasta maker! It's great, isn't it?

I remember the first thing Big Little Sister read to me before I realized how well she could read. It was a receipt for a gift I'd purchased for her :).
