Picklebird? What is a picklebird?


Try this combination:

A deck facing the Green Mountains of Vermont
A laptop with a long battery life
Citronella and lemongrass incense
Belle and Sebastian CD
A little black cat
Thoughts about an acceptance speech for a dissertation award

Life is good.

Things I have made during our first week in Vermont:

Grilled Chicken (twice!—this is really a great recipe)
Grilled Maple-Brined Pork Chops
Chipotle-Glazed Shrimp
Rustic Apricot Galette
Peach and Blueberry Crisp (made with hand-picked blueberries-- my hands)
Blueberry Buttermilk Tart (ditto)
Tons of Grilled Corn, Zucchini, Onions, and Eggplant
The now famous grilled corn salad (hint: try it with leftover chipotle glazed shrimp—YUM!)
Pnj’s Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, and Dried Cherry Cookies

Yes, we have been eating well. And this may explain why I have had no time for blogging!
