Busy, busy, busy (pt. 2)

Ok. So did I mention I've been busy? I actually had the rest of yesterday's entry written last night and I accidently erased it when I forgot that I'd been writing it.....

Moving right along.

Monday we're leaving at noon to go to Kentucky. I've hired a car to take us to the airport because I realized after my London trip that it's basically the same price to hire a taxi as it is to hire a private "limo" (read: Towncar) and there will be a nice little man to do all the driving and meet us in the baggage claim. And with the money we're saving on the boarding for the cats, we can afford to treat ourselves a little. The cats are going to stay with Steve and Sarah while we're gone, nominally because they don't mind, but we all know the real reason. They want to practice so when they take the plunge and get one of their own, they'll have an idea of what to expect. :-)

We've been making lots of orange juice since we moved. We have a huge tree and it's absolutely loaded with oranges (as I've mentioned before). This is good as it means we get lots of Vitamin C, but it's a bit of a challenge knowing what to do about them all. We can literally pick something like 10 pounds of oranges each weekend and not even put a dent in them. My next trick for getting rid of them is to start offering them to the folks at work. Unfortunately, oranges get dirty even when they're up on a tree, so they don't look like much, but they taste amazing.

A couple weeks ago, we did a round of orange juice (a full pitcher takes about 4-5 pounds of oranges, or about 30 oranges) and I took some pictures to show everyone the madness. We did another round this last weekend and turned about half of it into juice, so we have a big pile of oranges sitting on the counter that are going to go bad if we don't find a home for them.

Anyway, Alton Brown's talking about garlic and I've had a rough day, so I can't say I'm terribly interested in blog at the moment. I'll try to post something this weekend if I think about it....

Hey I forgot your address....... Can you send it to me? Getting ahold of you this way seemed like WAY more trouble, so I figured that it could be fun. Plus I can't sleep. Oh and the iron skillet does make good grilled cheese.
