Really excited about the publication and launch of my new Food Column in the Renton Reporter! My first guest features Iron Chef, Chef Wayne Johnson owner of Shuga’s Jazz Bistro in the heart of downtown Renton.
Yesterday, Amelia and I started work clearing an area in our yard for a composting bin. I decided after watching a reality show about Alaskan Homesteaders that I should attempt to use the extra wood and scraps around our yard to build our own composting bins. We cleared the spot and then I was perusing google for a prototype when I ran into a problem…step one: don’t use treated wood!
That was the wood I had been planning on using from a deck remodel. Argh.
Step two: cutting the wood. That dusty circular saw in the garage looks pretty sharp AND baseball in the yard with Patrick, Ty, Baby Grif and Amelia seems like so much fun!
I love making homemade pizza with my kids. Most people have no idea how easy and fun it is to make…the secret is adding seasoning to the dough (cheddar cheese powder, salt, garlic powder) to make it taste delicious and use my favorite local cheese by Beechers! Yum!
