Goodnight Irene

Corn...and perogies.......why not?

Irene blew through on the weekend, leaving us without power for a short time but not causing any major damage.

She did manage to flatten all our sunflowers and corn in the garden.  I had planned to enjoy all the corn we planted gradually over the next month......Irene had other plans.  Now I'm faced with about 75 cobs of corn to eat in 2 days....mmm...corn chowder, cornbread, corn fritters?

Today my plan is to bag up some of the corn....then stealthily hang a bag off the doorknob on my friend's front doors while they are at work......they will come home to discover they have been victims of a drive-by vegetabling(ok, I just invented this word).

As for the rest of the week, I have 4 pottery orders to pack up and ship.....and a crazy painting project to liven up my taupe kitchen (pics to follow).


  1. Yum Perogies! We are still with out power from Irene with no end in site.

  2. i have yet to have fresh sweet corn this summer. I must put it on my menu!

  3. Hooray for no major damage and for not losing power for too long! I'm sorry about the damage to the corn and sunflowers...and I sure wish I was one of your lucky neighbors. That corn looks delicious!
