Last full week in August

This is the last full week in August and in our area both in the City of Asheboro and the County school started today. I still have one niece and a nephew in school and two nieces in college. Summer as almost come to an end summer coming to an end in North Carolina means nothing I am sure we will have hot day well into October. Only four months and 2009 will come to an end. I wonder if my year will end better than last year, I am not holding out much hope that it will end any better the last. I finished up last night and mail today my August dishcloth swap with the dishcloths ar us ravelry group. I will post a picture when my partner receives her cloth. I have lot of roma tomatoes and I need to find something to do with them. I had planned to dry them out in the oven but I can't find recipe I found online last week. So I have a cookbook I brought years ago when I was part of a cookbook book club. Smith & Hawken The Gardeners' Community Cookbook , compiled and written by Victoria Wise. I think I will look for a nice sauce for the romas that I have left in the garden. I might cast on a dishcloth for the September dishcloth swap. It so nice to go out in my backyard and clip off sprigs of rosemary when I need it to cook. We put a Boston butt in the oven on Sunday and I clipped a few sprigs of rosemary to add a little something while the roast cooked. This is Rosie the rosemary.

for all of those romas, I took a note from Tom Grey with the last batch I had.

I popped them in the oven for abour 12 hours at 200 degrees with just a drizzle of olive oil, diced garlic, and a tiny bit of sea salt. Great on pizza, great on a chicken breast with a piece of melted mozzarella over the top... you could chiffonade basil there if you wanted too.

Hey Theresa. Saw your note on my blog about Common Threads. It is a little hard to find...it's tucked away off of North Main Street behind Tom's Restaurant. You would go down Main Street headed south. Tom's is on Main Street between the intersec. of State and Lexington on the left. You actually go into their parking lot to the back...there's a little shop center behind there, Common Threads is right in there. You should go. It is packed full of yarn. I love it!
