Ground Breaking

Reuse, recycle, reduce. We hear these ideas all the time and I tend to think they are good ones. It comes in especially great when someone gives me an old kiln.  That is exactly what happened when the electric kiln that we used for cone 6 glaze firing gave up the ghost at Callanwolde. It’s a good size kiln, much bigger than my electric kiln but I’m not interested in rewiring this one. You may remember I did that with my electric kiln when I installed the kiln sitter (you can read about that here) which I got from another free kiln.

Meatless Monday - Roasted Butternut Squash Lasagna

I did not make any changes to the recipe and I thought it was pretty darn good as is.  The nice part is that you can make this dish in advance and then pop it in the oven when you need it.  So I would prepare it on Sunday so I could eat it on Monday.

Happy Veteran's Day and thank you to all who have served.
