big b's birthday was yesterday. we are celebrating properly this weekend but i threw in some dinner treats last night to represent! baked garlic on crostini. the perfect starter::
so easy and so good. just slice off the top, sprinkle with water and olive oil, some salt and pepper (rosemary optional), wrap in foil and roast at 375 degrees until its done. these were large so they took about an hour. smooth and mellow and sweet, spreads just like butter!
big b also received a stellar gift from his mom. a brush cherry bonsai tree::
he has been wanting a bonsai to call his own for quite some time. i love this one. it came from our previously mentioned and most favorite garden shop. my favorite part are the two little men underneath it. check them out::
just chillin' on a leaf in their own little rock garden under the leaves.
may the spirit of mr. miyagi be with us as we try to keep this thing healthy.....or just plain alive. we got a three page print out regarding care. and i quote: "bonsai require patience, diligence, responsibility, creativity, and awareness, among other things." okay! no pressure. wax on, wax off.
happy october and happy weekend!
