I picked up my platter today from the Ceramics Lodge. I love it. It is imperfect and I colored outside the lines. I am going to use it tonight for a big platter of pasta.
What do you think?
A little closer view.
In this one you can really see how perfectly imperfect it is.
This is Karen's platter. Isn't it cool?
I might try this technique next time.
Signing off. Must go see if the chicken I started thawing out three days ago is finally thawed out enough to cook for dinner! Trying to wrestle frozen guts out of the middle of a whole frozen chicken is not a fun gig! Why do they put those in there anyway? Does anyone use the parts inside the chicken? I wish they sold them with and without the guts inside so you could choose. I just want to shove a couple lemons and some rosemary in the cavity without having to deal with a heart, liver and other various organs and parts.
I'm going to write my congressman and see if we can get something going with this suggestion.
Who is my congressman?
I am so politically uninformed.
Maybe I will try soaking it in a sink full of cold water. Or using a pair of pliers. Or maybe a jackhammer. Or a laser. I am full of really great ideas.
