Woodchuck Wednesday - Got Wood?!

I am reminded of a humorous Incident
which took place years ago on one of the first yachts I worked on.
We had a Ukrainian deckhand who spoke very little English.
One day, said deckhand walked into the galley and asked..
"Got wood?"
Excuse me?
"Got wood?...wood!"
points to teeth..."Wood!"
Ah....a Toothpick...Ya we got Wood!

Today's woodchuck
Has A lot of WOOD!

Food Fight Friday - What...No Dessert!

Today I'm keeping it sweet free...
But still Delish!

Roasted Red Pepper Dip
with Crunchy Tortilla Chips

It also doesn't get easier...

All you need is 1 Jar of ChickPeas
1 Jar of Roasted Red Peppers and Garlic
a splash of olive oil
and a dash of Lemon Juice

Rinse your chickpeas quickly
Add all together in a processor
And blend until smooth.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Next I cut up some soft taco tortilla's
and deep fried them.
You could crisp them up in the oven
But I was lazy
and figured the chickpeas where healthy enough!

Woodchuck Wednesday - When Art meets Wood!

I would flog myself for calling the following Genius
a woodchuck!
He is a True Master and Artist!

Since setting up my little wood shop I've been thinking, sketching
brainstorming and generally doodling, some ideas to create.
I came across the fascination of Automata quite some time ago,
But only recently began exploring it further.

I've always loved whimsy and theatrics
So to combine it as an art form...makes my heart SING!

So today I introduce you to the amazing Art of

Steve Armstrong

To view more of his works please visit
the Heike Pickett Gallery

and to really see him and his Art in action...
Check out this 3 part series on YouTube!

Compared to Mr. Armstrong
I'm a woodchuck with my tail between my legs!

OMG...I'm in LOVE!

We found some good ol' English Lemon curd
in the shops recently.
I used to eat it by the spoonful..

So with 2 bags of Lemons squeezed and 1 to go...
I couldn't help myself.

I found this fantastic Vid. on YouTube from Joy of Baking!

Food Fight Friday - Are you getting fresh with me?

Heya Slingers!
Sorry about that delay in programming...
But it WAS my Birthday,
No Foolin!
And I Did make my own cake...
I just had no time to photograph and Blog
before I ate the entire thing!
Okay I shared 'Some' with friends!
This week I'm keeping it simple as it's
too HOT to bake!

So I'm slinging some refreshing
handmade Lemonade

One of the things I absolutely LOVE about living in Mallorca
is the abundance of Lemon tree's!
We always have friends who need a hand containing them
and I'm always ready to oblige!

Last week we took in 3 Very large Eco bags full
I see a few lemon recipes coming up!
For now just a few tips on what the heck to do with them!

First get, borrow or steal an electric juicer
then get squeezing.
I use a funnel and put the juice into Cubito bags
(that's those funky ice cube bags (you could use trays too)
You can also grate the rinds before juicing and freeze
Cut a few (or 20) lemons into thin slices and place in a freezer bag.
Now put the whole lot into the freezer and wait for a nice hot day!

You can use your cubes in cooking and baking and the slices for
decoration, as Ice cubes in a pitcher or on Fish..etc

Now for the Lemonade...
add a couple cubes to water and a few drops of Splenda
or make your own sugar water.

Just fill a water bottle with 1/2 sugar and 1/2 boiling water
dissolve and cool!
Keep (labeled) in your fridge
Add to lemon water as you like!

Easy peasy Lemon squeezy!
