Spring Roll Friday



Cynthia was asking me the other day if I knew how to make spring rolls. I've never tried, because why make it when your filpino mom makes it so much better. Anyhow, this how-to video looks promising.

Happy weekend everyone:)

New Inventory in Etsy shop


We are making some more mini vessels today.  These vessels are one of our popular items.  

It's hard to tell what people are going to end up liking. We think one thing and then we are totally surprised by what ends up happening. We love that unpredictability.




So while were a bit slow on the blog front, we were at least busy making pots! More stuff in our Etsy Shop! Check them out here.

Favorite Bowl


I love this bowl. It's the one I look in the cabinet for when I want a bowl of cereal, oatmeal, soup, rice, fruit, ice cream. And there's nothing really special with it but just a happy accident with a couple of glazes (glossy white and Vegas red and black oxide.  And it got glazed fired twice (because I didn't like it the first time).

It's an imperfect bowl just like its owner.

Vampiro

Sorry, we had a brief hiatus with the blog. We got busy with the summer and all that it brings - heat, summer school, going out, staying in, barbqs, short getaways, having fun, etc.  OK and we got a little lazy too. Sometimes the best solution for uninspiredness is stepping away. So that's what we did. And now we're back!



Here's a pic of what I drank yesterday.  I was picking up some pizza from the Folliero's in Highland Park and passed by a juice shop, La Palapa.  I ordered the "Vampiro". Now I know why it's named that. It's orange juice, carrot juice and beet juice.  Warning: do not wear anything white when you drink this.  And don't be surprised when you go to the bathroom! I had a brief moment of "what the...?!#! 

Oh yes, the beet juice.

It was a delicious drink, sweet, sour, salty.  Next time I'm going for "Diablito" which is juice, mango ice cream, chili, melons and a chili stick.  Now that's a drink.
