well. it’s november

it’s cold. leaves are falling and it’s time to take down the halloween decorations and hang up the turkey banner.

we have BBQ’d 3 times on the new table and each time i have forgotten to take photos!!

irori table with ash and 3 legged pot stand

we lay a grill over the top (after filling up with hot coals) and just cook on that…. we sit around cooking and eating as we go… after we are all done, we take off the grill, put in the pot stand and heat up a kettle of water…or a pot of soup….

dinner rolls with mashed sweet potato.

i am trying to get into the habit of making fresh bread every week. this batch is made with mashed sweet potatos.  Then recently i made rolls with mashed potatoes.  Making fresh bread just takes a little extra time but the results are so fantastically delicious.  The whole mixing and kneading process is so relaxing!! I don’t use a bread machine or a mixer… just my hands and a large cutting board for kneading.

CNN offered plenty of news and updates on hurricane Sandy

…to all my East Coast friends and family… I hope you are safe and sound and that you recover soon from the damage. My thoughts are with you….

    My inlaws have a table like that and I’ve never seen them use it. I think it would be fun to use. Your buns look good.

      wow kirsten, thank you for liking my buns!!!
      we are probably going to wear this table out. that’s why we bought a sturdy one.
      too bad your inlaws haven’t found the joy of irori… maybe you should show them!!
